honda frv - egr removal - scfc_151

Hi all

im trying to remove my erg for removal. Ive managed to get the bolts all freed off but the access is a nightmare. I thought it would be easier to remove the cooler pipe at the same time but the valve doesnt have enough clearence to take it off the studs.

does anyone have any tips for this? There is one bolt at the bottom corner of the valve but it impossible to get a hand or spanner near it hence taking the cooler pipe off too

apologies for some reason i thought i wrote it. its a 2008 frv 2.2 cdti.

I managed to take off the intake pipe and cooler pipe so i could see inside the egr but the 2 bolts the hold the valve on 1 near the back was imposible to get any purchase on. there is zero hand space.

I was very blocked though and even clearing that out has made it quieter and smoother

Well you got it cleaned!

And welcome to life as a mechanic!!

Sucks sometimes...........

And to add insult the book time for this jub is only 0.60 mins!

So your missing something.

Admiting that I've never even done one on this vehicle the low job time hours would suggest if you can not your local Honda dealer isn't going to kill you with a huge bill.
