That is good news.I have just got a quote back (1 week after needing it ) for a used EGR valve it`s £45,so I think I`ll get that.The other part of the quote was for he turbo solenoid valve & that was £179.Think I`ll get that too.If it`s that much used,whatwould thedealers price be.
£170 is about the going rate for a new one.The only thing with a used one is if it has to be fitted,the car needs reprogramming by a dealer as independants don`t have the equipment . Anyway I`ll get it & have a spare.
When mine packed up last weekI took it to an independant garage (the one I use all the time) & they could not do the job as there is a warning in the box with the EGR saying the car needs reprogramming.I saw the warning myself.They were really sorry cos it`s cost them a job.Maybe it`s only the deisels that need doing.
I too thought it was a case of just swapping them,I know it is in petrol cars cos my brother-in-law just did one on a Polo.
I`ll ring chambers in the morning and see what they say.
