Hi there, It looks like the second code you have is incorrect - it should be a letter with 4 digits after it...

With regards to the EGR, if your car isnt under warrenty, have a look at the post I made not so long ago about the Saab version of the EGR valve :)

£10 not such a bargain if it can only tell you 50% of the codes however your forgetting a dealers chsrge of £60 includes a hours diagnosis which in the majority of cases is ample time to indentify the fault.
