I know this isn't quite what you asked, but as the EGR is in an easy position for replacement on the JTD I went with a second-hand one on eBay. Should be £60-70. If it cokes up again in a couple of years, I'll do the same. If it were a long job, I'd buy new.

so buy second hand and buy someone elses problem ....bite the bullet and buy new my advice
Yeah. This!

Only reason I'd buy second hand would be for peanuts to have a spare to clean out so I could simply swap them if I didn't want the car off the road for too long, and even then I'd want to know the history of the one I was buying.

Wouldn't even dream of fitting a S/H one without servicing it first. If it arrived with the solenoid end drilled then I'd reject it as someone else has already had to repair it.....

How did you calculate that then? It's a 5 min job and he's looking at a £25 part second hand?
It'll be more than a 5 minute job if the second hand one hasn't been dismantled and had the solenoid pin de-rusted and re-greased because it'll seize. They all do eventually.

The black stuff in the valve itself is a secondary problem.
