[Vwdiesel] EGR popped!

There's a vent hole at the 6 o'clock position that has a rubber seal  
inside.  It decided to burst, spewing oil all over and causing an EGR  
fault in the computer.

I have to have one, as we have emissions in northern colorado for  
diesels.  I've got one on order from German Auto Parts for $185.  I'll  
start pulling the old one either tonight or tomorrow, so when it  
arrives, I'll just throw it on.

Ever since there's been a switch to the ULSD, the problems with coking  
in the EGR and intake has greatly diminished.  I don't mind keeping it
