Hello

Hi all, I have just recently purchased a 2005 JTD Eleganza so just thought I would drop by and say hi. I also own a 20v marea and post within the marea section sometimes too. Hope all is well amongst you all!

Got an EGR valve to sort out, understand that's a messy one!

Yeah, messy when the sciatica kicks in from bending over the back of the engine.

If only Nicole Scherzinger was a Fiat mechanic.

Welcome to the Multipla madhouse.
Had a few mucky times with the marea, but generally she has behaved herself. Now time for it to enjoy a quieter life :sly:

Re: Hello

If you do a search on here you will find hordes of people have gone out with their toolbox with well meaning intentions of removing the EGR valve and giving it a shine that ED China would be proud of.
In reality the bolts are a right ba***d and 90% of people just blank the bloody thing off and be done with it.
I am one of the 90%.

Haha I have noticed yes. I think I'll take the easy route and order the blanking plate then. Looking at it I assume it just goes between the gaskets by the aluminium pipe?

Re: Hello

Going to buy one then, before I commit to buying, which one do I need, one with the hole or one without?

AlonsoX I found it! (well my mechanic did) on the 2005> it's located on the passenger side in between the rear arch and the front of the car. Hope this helps. 😊

Re: Hello

Update: EGR blank was eventually fitted by my local mechanic. What a difference it makes. Got like unlimited power now!
