    Why do you need to replace this part? it mostly just gets blocked up with carbon deposits, unplug the mass air flow sensor from its socket then remove the Mass Air Flow Meter from the intake side of the manifold where its joined with the big jubilie clip, then remove the air filter housing with mass air flow meter connected from top of engine, then remove the sensor plug from the front of the EGR valve then remove the 3 x 10mm bolts from the egr valve take care as these can be in and a pain to loosen so just loosen them nice and steady, once they are loose remove them and then remove the egr valve you may need to prise this out if its badly carboned up, once out make sure the round disk is on the end that sits inside as these can some times fall off clean it up and ensure you can push it open and when closed that its sealing around the edge correctly, if its knackered then just buy another one but if not once cleaned up test its operation before re fitting.
    I have been told that this valve usually splits in half and this is common as once its bolted back in place correctly it will function as normal.
