EGR gaskets

Hi Everyone

If I take my EGR off to see if it needs a clean. Haynes manual says to replace both gaskets. No idea where to get them, so would I be ok once, just putting it back as is?

Seem to remember removing one on a astra once, sure I just put it straight back on

If they come off intact then they are fine to re-use in my experience.

If they get damaged then you either use gasket goop or find another one to replace it.

What material are they? And where could I get them if needed?

Rover 600 Inlet/Exhaust Manifolds - 2000 Diesel from BM246797 at www.rimmerbros.co.uk

19 which is fibre/cardboard but can be replaced with silicone if needed.

14 is a bit more substantial and is cardboard with a metal fire ring in it.

Thank you, so would be one of each? Guess I could see the condition of the gaskets in place at the moment first?

Chances are you'll be able to re-use them. If the intake manifold gasket rips then use some silicone on it - it'll be fine.

I've not replaced one yet anyhow!

Mine are 6mm caphead bolts, so I used allen keys.

Yeah thats them. The ones going into the manifold are bolts.

Even with allen keys, could you reach the back one? There is a thick black pipe that goes front to back across the engine. Found this really restrictive

I've never needed to remove the metal intercooler pipe but you can do so if needed. It is just a couple of jubilee clips and one bolt or is it two?
