EGR valve removal question

How are you guys removing your egr valves? I have been pulling, twisting,prying,etc. That thing is well stuck in there!! And the room is very limited. I even bought a pulley puller but i am afraid that the plastic up top will break if i use it as leverage. I am limited on the tools.

You could turn the EGR valve until you can access the mounting holes, run some wire through the holes, and use a prybar or broomstick as leverage against the alternator.

I got mine off, by getting the claw end of a hammer under the lip if the valve, and pop it out. It took some nuts, but it came out.

I used two pieces of a coat hanger and a broom handle.
hook the wire through the holes, twist the coathanger and make both sides equal, twist them around a broomhandle and pull up hard. You have to pull straight up, which isn't easy. You can also get a mini nail puller and pry up on the tabs EASY, being careful not to bend the tab. A little good luck and patience is needed.
When you go to slip it in, use a little vaseline and it will slide right in.

they are a bear to get out. Took me a good hour first time pulling, prying, used a mini trim nail puller finally.

After thatn I just unplugged the harness on top and that solved most of the problems unitl I finally did the EGR delete here in the forum.

All is good now!

twist till the tabs are off the mounting points and slip rolling pry bars under the tabs, then pry up evenly on both sides

I just pulled mine a hour ago. I used a small pry bar/ nail puller called a Wonder Bar and a hook tool. I put one on each side and pried up with equal force. Once it starts to come it will come out easy. Just be ready so say "oh ****" when you see the crap built up on it!
