EGR Valve

My father in laws Jazz had to have the EGR valve removed and cleaned last week due to what he discribes as Kangerooing. The dealers advised the valve was faulty and so they removed and cleaned it. This seems to have fixed the problem but they did warn him that it might need replacing!

I understand the valve is ion top of the engine and easily accessible. Does anybody have a photo of it and know how much they are?

This is the location of the EGR valve:

The EGR valve itself:

Replacement price? Not sure, but I've heard it's not cheap. You could try asking the dealer/Honda UK to go halfs - it is a well known problem.

Hi rja!

I'm looking into this issue as I gather it just happens to models prior to 2003? Or is it presesnt in newer models, too?

Is there a solution to clean it?, and if so, what do we use? or is it just a case of replacement, and how much would it cost?

Would appreciate your help...thanks!
