EGR Valve Removal Tips

Ok guys, so my diesel tech didn't install the EGR Valve Blockoff Plate that came with the RCD EGR delete. So i thought, I can do this! I got the bolts out, unplugged it, and struggled with it for an hour, and couldn't get the dang thing out I don't have the greatest selection of tools, but I got the basics. Any tips?

Smile Nothing Special Required

You should be able to use a standard screw drive (perferrably long) and pry lightly on the base while twisting slightly. There are 2 o-rings on the valve that seat good, you can be a little rough, leverage is had due to space restrictions.

This is what i did. Made a "tool" out of a welding rod (top left). Rotated the valve so i could get the tool to go in the mounting holes for the valve. Ran a piece of pipe through the tool and lightly pryed against the plastic near the windshield and it popped right out.

Heres my paint version(im not an artist)

I'm thinking about making a "tool" like that out of fence wire, and the using a broomstick to pull it out. Lol

a 2' pry bar works wonders all you need to do is remove the plug, remove the bolts, tap the sharp edge of the pry bar under the flange(or where ever you have access) and push the bar down, the valve will pop right out, it needs to come straight up, not wiggled to the left or right or spun.

Grab the valve with a pair of pliers, turn the valve so the retainer tabs are away from the holes in the intake.

Use an alignment bar, or pinch bar type prybar, and pry back on the bar and the valve will pop out.

I've got about 40 of 'em under my toolbox at work.

Slide hammer works too.

if there is no flow through the egr, with a solid up pipe and coolant rerouted I dont think it is bad to leave it in especially if yor state does visual inspections...
