Basically he's saying that he has found an easy way to disable the EGR and not get any errors. As you rightly say he has left the solenoid connected to the wiring loom but the EGR valve remains closed as the solenoid isn't pushing on the valve. He then goes on to talk about fitting a blanking plate to the valve so you can't see it. He say's it works on the Euro 3 and 4 engines but he hasn't tried it on the Euro 5 engine. That may be what 159kid is talking about and still getting an error although I thought all the engines just look for Manifold pressure and are not able to measure combustion gas quality? I do know some EGR's have two electrical pins and some have three, the third pin is to provide confirmation of position so this might be on the Euro 5 engine, so if your solenoid doesn't move it probably will still give an error, but you never know if the extra pressure of not being connected to the valve lets if move it might still be a cure. The one thing I do know is that the power will be back at low down revs!. Just to back up what he's done I had loss of power and did exactly as Belli29 has and like him "I could hardly beleive it but it works!" his words not mine! Mine is an 8vJTD Auf wiederhoren!!
