So here is the plate in place.
Now here is the oil filter in a stupid place tbh. Little restrictive but not impossible. 27mm from memory. The filter just pulls out of the cap once free. It can be a little stiff but it comes off.
Lastly just a picture of the turbo inner. Some black on the blades, but looks clean enough.
Anyhow, the pollen filter to be fitted in the passenger cabin, which I'll do later and DPF delete I'll show probably over the weekend.
To note, the panel under the engine, there are I think 8 philips screws. It's a nice easy panel to remove.
The oil, around 3.7 litre was local purchase c3 low ash fully synthetic 5w30 oil.
So the EGR plate.
Yes the light has come on and yes the power is reduced, but I don't think that is limp home mode as it's quick enough at the moment. As said, once I do the DPF delete (because the light does come on sometimes when starting, and then goes) then I'll go for a remap to disable both.
To note the DPF will be gutted and replaced again as it's now an MOT failure to remove completely the DPF.
