    Hi all!

    There's some oil on the electrical plug on my EGR and I want to unplug it and clean it in case this is causing my P0405 fault but I don't want to break it.

    Can anybody tell me how to unplug it, please?

    Cheers,

    Paul.

    The oil is coming out of the EGR valve, oil mist in the charge air system from the turbo and engine breather condenses back into liguid and is forced inside the EGR valve motor by spindle bore wear and then starts to escape through the plug. These plugs are, as you have noticed, very fragile and easy to break but a professional job to replace.
    A petition has been started to allow the use of synthetic fuels when they become available, this may allow the continued sale of ICE vehicles post 2030 and the use of classic vehicles well into the future… Their use may even be able to rival electric vehicles given the chance. Please sign this petition IF you feel the infernal combustion engine has a future if sustainable fuels are made available

    A 2007 BRE that is still running must have been done?

    Thanks! Would swapping the EGR make sense?

    Cheers,
