    Back Order EGR! Grrrr!

    Over 2 weeks ago the power on my to my 1.9cdti went and engine managment light came on. I took it to my local dealership who identified the problem as being the egr valve and that it was a common fault.

    They told me that the part was out of stock and would take take a few days to sort. They've given me a courtesey car but that was two weeks ago! Found out begining of last week there were 2,800 on back order and that my local dealership had 9 other cars in all waiting for the same part! Called again today and the service department told me they had ordered another EGR valve for another car with the same problem on Thursday and that it was still showing on back order!

    Anyone else having the same problem? Begining to think this could take forever! My courtesey car is petrol and i do about 800 miles a week so i'm out of pocket there too!
