By intake i mean the plastic part on top, its not to difficult to take off, 4 bolts on the manifold and the egr bits and connectors. i followed my nose for most of it and referred to the Haynes man when i got stuck.

Did mine a while ago on my 1.9D 2000 van, took off cast intake manifold as well as it was dire, main stress was getting the egr pipe off of exhaust connection it used hex drive and were well trashed ended with cutting off heads and using stud remover.
mine was so bad i sprayed with degreaser (hyper clean) and used petrol and paintbrush and toothbrush and chunk of rag on a strong cord to clean inside intake manifold. a final coat of degreaser and a jet wash.
It ran a bit lumpy untill it had a good run, now it runs much much better than before more power more acceleration and i think better mpg
Very messy but worth it in my case

part one completed anyway. egr and cooler cleaned. not a bad a job as i thought.
not that dirty either but i split the electronic part from the body of it. one concern of mine was it seemed very hard to split.
i think it could have been stuck in a partially open position. as the body part has to move to allow the electronic part to come out. went back very easy after cleaning and the mechanism on the electronic part seemed to move fine.
any thoughts on this.
Can someone check for me. After a 10 min drive round urban areas is the egr pipe that goes into the manifold hot to the touch?
Not warm but hot you could keep your hand on it if ya had to but its hot.
Just want to make sure the solinoid is working and its not staying open
