    EGR Cleaning - '97 ETC

    OK, I'm preparing to clean my EGR. Went and bought the gasket, just in case.........all of $2.99.
    Here's my question.
    I've checked other posts regarding cleaning the EGR, and I'm confused as to whether or not I'm going to have to remove my fuel rail.
    '97 ETC, has the stainless steel rail, but looking at it, it sure looks like it will come right out.
    There's a cable, looks like a tranny cable, zip-tied to that black bracket just in front of the EGR that looks like it might be an issue, and then there are a couple of brackets that appear to hook to the fuel line, but they look like they'll come right out if you loosen the forward EGR screw.
    It looks like it will come right out if you can deal with the brackets holding the fuel line. I think I can work around the cable.
    Anybody know for sure on a '97 ETC? I don't want to have to mess with the fuel rail and injectors if possible.
