I was :censored: myself, came in the house and calmed down, went back out and the clip was on the floor just under the sump. Damn lucky to find it, my neighbour was having a good laugh on my behalf! Glad I could cheer him up.

Chronyx I put the self tappers in the 2 vacuum tubes at the bottom of the EGR for some reason when I press the accelerator the valve seems to still be working, any ideas?

No idea - I took a hammer and a pair of pliers to my EGR valve and ripped the flap out, then stuffed a cylinder of aluminium up the supply from the exhaust and sealed that off with silicone. It doesn't get hot - after all it's feeding into the plastic EGR valve and manifold assembly.

Had to patch up the side of the EGR valve up with silicone but I wasn't being gentle! All the vacuum pipes are still in place.

Two for one - no EGR, and no 'throttling' of a diesel engine which by definition prefer to run as lean as possible.

I think I have exactly the same problem, though it's not on the floor under the sump!
I changed fuel filter, the primer button wouldn't clear the air, so I bled through the injector pipes. Put it all back together and the pedal has dropped!!! I remember seeing something like a hair pin near the the throttle cable but it has now vanished! Can I get another one or use something else?

It is like a hair pin i think you could make one out of a bite of stiff wire and pliers.
