I did it this afternoon. What a PITA to get the one on the driver's side undone. I finally just popped the clips on the inlet and slid the tubing back. Save yourself the trouble and go this route for anyone looking to do it.

I have my EGR valve hold down tab under the right-rear intake elbow bolt so it doesn't bounce around. Have a read.....

What are we talking about unplugging here. How many plugs are on the egr that need to be removed. I'm doing mine today, I'm going to wat a few months to remove the cooler and the other parts. Anyone have pics of which connectors?

you should just remove the egr and coolers,problem solved.

the egr valve isnt a total seal valve.

if you rupture a cooler,coolant can still enter the engine intake.
How? Just curious I think my cooler is ruptured, so I thought I'd unplug the egr valve in hopes it will prevent coolent from entering the intake, till I can fix it. But it appears I'm mistaken?
