Default Re: Cleaning EGR Valve (with Pictures)

edit: oops i see someone beat me to the punch with richpin's video links. ha!

i'll just add that i didnt need to take the battery out when i did my 99 sl2 and
a torque wrench for tightening the bolts is advisable. torque spec for the egr bolts is 19 ft-lbs.

needle style torque wrenches can be had for about $10 and ensure you tighten the bolts down enough without breaking anything. good luck and the key is preparation.

oh and a socket extension may make it easier to access the bolts, and don't do it on a hot engine for safety sake.
