If it is an OM651 then it is on the inlet manifold and hard to reach.
See youtube for inlet manifold removal.

Thanks.

Is it possible to take off the silver bit of the EGR from above and use spray cleaner?

Not sure how
Possible or effective this would be.

Just had the EGR mapped out. The cars done 100k in central London traffic. The air intake will be full of soot as with the butterfly valve I would suspect.

I'd like to maximise performance and economy by maximising air flow.
