Thank you for using just answer. My name is XXXXX XXXXX i will assist you today.
How are you.
Have you tried to remove the egr valve ?
I tried to remove an egr valve and the top half broke off
do you have a air hammer?
can it be pulled out by the ring protruding from the top
it wil be hard
so how can i remove it
They make a tool for this but you have broken the top so it will not help
This is your best option
You need a air hammer or a hammer and pry bar
what do i pry on
let me try to get you a pic
How much of the top is broken off?
Just the plastic part?
no some of the aluminum too
Since you dont have a air hammer do you have vice grips and a slide hammer?
The best way is top yank it out with the slide hammer. The egr goes deep into the housing and its a tight fit
Then you may have to break some off at a time to get it all out
there is almost nothing to grab onto
we do have an air hammer
So the valve is almost flush with the housing?
Thats not good
Is the internal parts still there or gone aswell?
the internal parts are still in and most of the aluminum top is still there
Is there any of the top left that the slide hammer can attach to?
not much to grip to
most of the top is still there
let me think for a min
I would try to remove it with the slide hammer on the internal parts
ok will try
The thing is that it has to come straight out
So some pliers may be needed as well
can we remove the housing the valve is in for better access
hello anyone there?
you can remove it. The valve will be hard to remove
If you would have not have started without me i could have showed you a great way. But i understand how it goes
did not know about you we are on a small island and have to do all maintenance ourselves
Oh its ok. The hard thing now is to get the outside part of the egr valve out the housing without messing up the housing
Maybe you can find a opening on the inside valve to put the slide hammer with hook in it
Worse case is try to pry one side to the middle and destroy the valve as u go. It wil be hard but its kinda your only shot now
better solution: replace housing and valve
damaged housing a little so ordered new one
thats the intakee
as long as the other egr seas its ok
and if you replace the housing and all thats a good price
i wish i could have helped more. If you accept answer i would appreciate it but if not i undersatnd as i didnt help as much as i liked
