Good to hear you have resolved the issue!

Couple of questions as I'm still trying to resolve my problem. I found some info on the Peugeot forums for the fuel filter. Looks as though for the Pugs you have to transfer over the diesel fuel pre-heater when you change the fuel filter. Do you have any idea if it's the same setup on the Mini?

For the blanking plate, is it easy to install yourself? I had a look down there and there appear to be some strange looking clamps that I'm not sure how to disconnect, they look like you might need a special tool to clamp them back on - seems to be where the connection between the EGR and the exhaust cooler are (like a silver ring?).

Did you require any kind of remap to blank of the EGR? I've heard a few people complain that inserting the blanking plate causes a CEL.

Thanks!

Hi Benlg81,

can you confirm the egr location, is it right side of engine looking in under the air box??. I have bought one to give it a go ;-)

Hi Dixy72,

Yes, that's where the EGR is. You can identify it as it has a white sticker on it (think it says "Valeo").

cheers guys my blank has turned up and I have located the part, also looked at a youtube video of a guy taking it off a peugeot that spring clip looks like a pain, will get it off cleaned hole drilled 8.5 mm?? and give it a try, failing this we have discussed about selling it down the road really not worth all this trouble, I have also put in some good dpf cleaner but if the egr is dirty its not going to help it. I will of course keep you all posted :-)

benlg81 yes pal that was the final straw, after struggling to get that clip back on the egr it had my temper up, took it for a run thinking it would be grand but no!!!!! still there :-((( so very disappointing the wife now does not want to drive it because it was stalling on her so its going down the road. All I can say is shame on BMW they charge big money for their tech's knowledge which could not solve this issue, just not worth the hassle anymore people mocked me for having a 500 abarth but I never had an issue like this :-/
