    EGR Valve

    Hey,

    I think my egr valve is knackered as it doesn't do anything, i unbolted it to check and it just doesn't move lol.

    Anyway, how much am i looking to pay for a new one?

    1.4 16v 1998 (Mk4)

    Thanks,

    Foz

    fit a blanking gasket, fits between the egr and the manifold. available from vx. and get somebody with tech2 or opcom to delete the egr from your ecu. but leave it plugged in! had this done on my astra makes the world of difference as they fail constantly!
