NM. Found a shot of mine.



Look to the right of the front valve cover. See that round thing with the black top and a wire running from it? That'* the EGR valve. It'* held in by 2 13MM bolts.

Warning. You want the engine to have been off for at least 30 minutes before you touch it. The word HOT doesn't suffice.

30 minutes is not long enough. This is an item with hot exhaust gases going through. Wear protective gloves if you've run the car that day. Never too safe. And I'd suggest cleaning attempt first.

Vig and you know why
