I have a 2005 GU 4.2 diesel Patrol Ute. I would like to block my EGR pipe at the exhaust end. I would like to know if I undo the bolts at the inlet side of the egr tube and leave the cooling hoses attached will there be enough movement at the exhaust end to get a blanking plate in.

I would like to hear how you managed to blank the egr off at the exhaust. The turbo does not allow enough room for the plate to be slid in from the side. It appears I need to get the pipe out of the way and fit the blank from below and straight up over the studs. I believe these EGR tubes will crack eventually although mine hasn't yet.

Any advice is appreciated.
Cheers Peter

G'day, there was a recall from Nissan on the EGR pipe, it replaces the one that breaks. I would get it replaced first, then fit the blanking plate. Also, much easier to blank off at the other end, see pic. Also a link to Patrol forum is in thread 99981.

Thanks John, yes it is easier to blank the inlet off. I wanted to blank the exhaust side off as it looks like a major drama if the EGR pipe fails. Maybe the new replacement pipes dont fail.

Did you get a decal with the words nissan campaign afixed to the drivers door hinge pillar to confirm the replacement EGR tube had been installed ? It would have been put there after the recall work was done.

Thanks for the photo and your reply.
Cheers Peter

Peter, I went to Nissan to get the wheel nut indicators done and they said they would do the EGR pipe also, I said, "tad difficult, it ain't there", so no sticker for the recall.

Just a follow up for anyone else trying to block their EGR Tube at the exhaust end. My pipe isnt broken yet but I found I could not slip a blanking plate in even with hooks instead of holes. I had to remove the intercooler and disconnect the inlet end and undo a bracket at the back of the motor connected to the EGR to get the movement I needed to get the EGR plate in.



I understand others may have a higher level of skill and can just undo the exhaust end and slip a blank in. The post is just to assist others thinking of blanking the EGR at the exhaust end.
