Seat Exeo EGR Replacement

Seat Exeo Paddy

Hi all,

The check engine light came on recently in my 2012 reg seat exeo, 2.0 litre diesel.
I took it to the local mechanic and he told me the EGR was done, and i would need a new one.
He quoted a price in the region of 600 - 700 quid, which is a little steep for me at the minute.
Does anyone on here have any experience in changing an EGR valve in this type of car, or do you know if the egr and the cooler must be changed together, or if the EGR can be replaced on its own, whilst keeping original cooler. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
P.S. the engine code of my car is : CJCA.

Thanks guys.

Typical dealership solution.
I would say; removed it and clean it up and put back in. Use a small copper brush.
Check the piping from and to the egr as well.
