I have a 52 plate Zafira 2.0 dti Comforteverything is fine except as
soon as the car gets up to temperature (about 3-4 miles) the spanner
light comes on and it goes to limp home mode. Any ideas? Also I have
noticed that the EGR valve seems to be a bit of an issue on this car and
I also see they are not cheap!! Does regular cleaning help? Thanks

I had the same issue and had to get a new egr valve - I managed to get a garage that offered a second hand one so for labor and the part cost me £300 but now my boys back to full fitness. With mine it seemed to be an intermittent fault - I tried a carbon clean and it seemed to clear for a bit. Depends on how bad it is I was advised that taking the car a long drive in a lower gear than required then stopping and revving the car might clear the egr valve.
