    Hi
    Not sure if this will help but a similar fault is caused by the filter before the catalytic conerter in the exhaust system. The cure was to gun the engine in third when the light first appears to clear the filter but if ignored the engine shuts down and its a £1300 fix. Just a suggestion, not a fix.

    I've had 3 EGr valves on my zafria 1.9cdti (150) in the past 3 years. It is a known fault with this model and vauxhall are repairing them, they have to put in new erg valve, several other parts and reset the computer, it is due to the EGR valve not regenerating due to a system program, I'd chance my luck with a vauxhall garage
    good luck

    well the day i purchased my zafira it failed the mot and had to have an EGR fitted, the trade part came to £98+vat, of course this was part of the sale, the car is mainly used on big motorway journeys, but when it nips about it then gets a good thrashing. fingers crossed havent had the problem yet. but yet being the key word with everything vauxhall related,
