Hi, I have an 03 1.6 petrol Zafira with an EGR Valve fault. Am i right in saying this is a known fault and can be resolved but using a blanking plate rather than keep changing/cleaning the valve?

Also, if I were to clean the valve is it a big job or something I could do myself?

Hi, yes this is a common fault, (i take it you have the x16xel engine)
what i would to is to remove the egr valve
(very simple two torx screws and unplug the wiring plug)
and give it a good clean in carb cleaner!
if still no joy
1 get a coke can and some tin snips!
2 cut the coke can to make a flat sheet of tin
3 put your egr on to it and mark around it to make a template
4 cut it out not forgetting the two bolt holes
5 put your new blanking plate you madeunder the old egr valve
like a gasketand screw it back up,clip theplug back on, then all should be well

hope that helps
Cheers Liam
