Ours is a 55 plate 1.6HDi 9HXC engine. No DPF and the BSI software that blocks the aftermarket Cruise Control.
Bought an EGR blanking plate when we first got the motor last October but threads on here said - 1.6HDi = engine management lights! so did not fit it.
Lately been trying to track down a flutter - an intermittent slight irregularity in the running 20-40 mph just like an injector misfire.
After Lighty's comments above I went an fitted the plate - flutters gone, better acceleration and smoother power delivery. Done a 50 mile round trip, motorway speeds, a 20 minute traffic jam, some town stop start and no lights yet! Looking good so far.:wave:
Ours has the electric EGR valve behind the fuel filter.
Removed the turbo to MAF pipe, the air box inlet pipe, unpluged the MAF and removed the airbox complete.
Unclipped the fuel filter, unplugged the two electrical connections and placed fuel filter with fuel lines attached over by brake servo.
Slackened the two bolts securing EGR valve and eased valve away from head enough to insert plate.
Then removed three bolts securing the fuel filter mounting casting (blanking plate won't go in with it in place!).
Inserted plate next to head and retightened EGR valve. Refitted fuel filter bracket and filter. Refitted air box and pipes - all done in around 3/4 hour including working out time.
I'll post back if I get any management light problems but it's looking fine so far>
