    it takes about 2mins to remove and the same to refit!

    a brand new one is only £65/£75 delivered from a Vauxhall specialist on ebay and is 100% identical (same Delphi brand) as Vauxhall would supply

    Heres a rough pic showing its location on your 1.6 and a link to the replacement part i would strongly recommend (if that is, cleaning it doesnt resolve your issues)



    EGR for X16XEL - 1.6 models from 98-00: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Vauxhall-EGR-V...item2c5110dfac


    EGR for Z16XE - 1.6 models from 00-04: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Vauxhall-EGR-V...item2a01889cb0




    **** dont get a one from a scrappy though!!!! they are a common part to fail so youll probs get a dud one!!! The cost of them new (above) doesnt really warrant wasting money on unknown scrappy units ****

    What problems are you actually having? has it been pinpointed that the EGR is at fault? At least try cleaning it, together with the throttle body too and then taking it from there - petrol is the ideal cleaning agent - cheaper and more effective than carb cleaner

    the reason you cant find it is because it doesnt have one!
