Audi A3 TDI problems following emissions update

My Audi A3 TDI was recalled two months ago for emission modification work. Since then it has only done 400 miles and developed problems with the engine management light flashing on and off. The diagnostic test identifies the exhaust gas recirculation valve as the culprit. It was fine before the emissions work, is anyone else having problems with their cars after this update?

Loads of people. Two Solicitors working on Class Actions for Volkswagen Owners over this issue are Leigh Day and Attwood Solicitors. I'll put this into the A3 entry in www.honestjohn.co.uk/carbycar with links to the two firms of solicitors.

My diesel Audi 2.0-litre has been remapped. Will the emissions fix undo my remap, thus meaning I will have to pay to get it done again?
