    I am told by Honda i need a new EGR valve. Are these a DIY servicable part? or easily DIY replaced?

    ERG valve can be replaced quite easily are you going to attempt it yourself or going to get it done by a technician?

    i was hoping to either clean the existing one or fit the replacement one myself if its reasonably easy to fit

    It's an easy job. Honda take the battery out but I did it whilst still in. Airbox comes out and them it just unbolts. One connector goes to it. I'm assuming its not seating correctly. You can test it opens by putting 12v across it. Should just flick open.
