EGR Valve removal tip

This is a tool that I found to really reduce the time it takes to pull the EGR valve. I didn't have a gear puller like is suggested in the "Maintenance" section but a neighbor suggested a 'seal puller'. Wow! The bolts had already been removed. I had the EGR valve out in less than 10 secs. Put one in under the edge of the passenger side (just forward of the mounting bolt) and started prying. Used my right hand to pull straight up. Voila!

I went immediately to AutoZone and picked one up for $10.99 + tax.

New to the site and did lots of research on this topic. I own many prybars and pullers but when it came time to do mine, I used some 12ga. wire and did a double loop ( using the ears of valve/holes) and used a prybar on top of the intake elbow and in 5 seconds, it was loose and ready to soak. poor mans way! I guess.
