Section 7.5.2
Installation of EGR Control Valve, Gas Outlet Pipe, and Gas Mixer

Install the EGR control valve and gas outlet pipe as follows:‪

  1. Insert a symmetric membrane into the reed valve housing flange using industrial petroleum jelly. See Figure "Removing the Symmetric Membrane on Gas Outlet Pipe Side" .
  2. Insert the EGR control valve onto this membrane using petroleum jelly.
  3. Install the back two bolts of the EGR control valve (M8 x 90 mm). Install the front two bolts (those closest to the front lifter bracket) of the EGR control valve (M8 x 40 mm). Torque all bolts to 25 N·m (18 lb·ft).
  4. Using two bolts, install the back control valve bracket that holds the wiring harness terminal in place. Torque to 25 N·m (18 lb·ft).
  5. Connect wiring harness terminal to valve connector.
  6. Insert a second membrane into the right side of the EGR control valve housing using industrial petroleum jelly.
  7. Taking the EGR gas outlet pipe in hand, fit component manually onto symmetric membrane, using petroleum jelly.
  8. Install the four gas mixer mounting studs into the intake manifold.
  9. Install metal gasket over studs.
  10. Fit gas mixer over mounting studs and push on as far as possible.
  11. Install the gas mixing pipe into the air inlet pipe of mixer using a new metal gasket. See Figure "Removal of Gas Mixing Pipe" .

    NOTICE:

    To avoid any engine damage, ensure that the gas passage of the mixing pipe is turned towards the intake manifold.‪

    Note: Due to its awkward shape, gas outlet pipe must be mounted to gas mixer before the gas mixer can be firmly attached to intake manifold.

  12. Mount gas outlet pipe to gas mixer using a new metal gasket and two M8 x 16 mm bolts. Adjust gas mixer if necessary to accommodate the gas outlet pipe. Torque to 25 N·m (18 lb·ft).
  13. Position support bracket in place for gas outlet pipe. Install bracket using three M8 x 16 mm bolts. Torque to 25 N·m (18 lb·ft).
  14. Install the air inlet pipe to the gas mixer using four nuts. Torque to 50 N·m (37 lb·ft). See Figure "Removal of EGR Gas Mixer" .
  15. Install the turbo boost/air intake temperature sensor to the gas mixer.
