EGR Valve question....

1485 Views 12 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  Ranger
I was trying to take off my EGR valve this afternoon to give it a cleaning. I unplugged its connection and then on the firewall side of the valve there is a bolt that has to be removed and on the front bumper side of the valve there is a "nut" that has to be removed.

Now here lies my problem: Underneath that nut, on top of another bolt, there is a metal bracket that holds 2 chrome lines that travel underneath the manifold cover and loop around the injectors. This metal bracket looks like it must first be taken off to get to the underlying bolt that holds the EGR in place.

However, the chrome pipe that is welded to this bracket that fits over this bolt will not move enough to slip it over the bolt so that I can loosen the underlying bolt.

Can anyone of you who have Sevilles (92-97) please go check your cars and see if this is something that we all have or am I alone. The Helm's manual makes no mention of this bracket on the EGR bolt. Anyone who can help, please pitch in. Thanks guys.

I just did this job! Really easy, take off the top engine cover deal, 4 nuts there. Then pull the stantions those nuts screwed onto off. That'll free up your fuel rail, unseats the injectors and fuel rail and it'll come off the bolt your concerned about. You don't have to take the fuel rail and injectors out, just unseat them. then the "bolt" is really another fastener you take off and then out comes the EGR.
