    Hey, ive just joined looking for answers on a similar problem. I have the 1.9 cdti and the emissions warning light is now always on, performance is severely limited. Took it to a local garage who came back with fault code P2279 which is "intake air leak". The garage could not find any leaks to speak of so its now back on the drive waiting to go to a vauxhall garage. A mate recommended cleaning the EGR valve which I have now done - still the warning light sits there.

    Mine had a large number of fault codes - including the air intake leak. It all was the result of the egr valve packing in which in the end resulted in the car being undrivable and having no power at all.

    After cleaning all the pipework out around the egr, installing a new egr, ripping out the whole air intake system and replacing all the pipework and doing up all the clamps all the codes went. I doubt you actually have an air intake leak, its more than likely a symptom of the car being unable to draw air in or send out as necessary due to a faulty or sticky egr.

    the codes are p2279, the other two digits are a reference code. this is an air leak issue, for which you need to cleant the EGR valve and check and tighten all inlet/intercooler pipes and clips. p0500 is a fault with one of the wheel hub sensors, most likely the front passenger.
