How to get egr off


Registered User
Hi I've got a 3.0tdi avant and the egr has started blowing through a hairline crack so I'm taking it off blanking the turbo pipe and looping the cooler hoses but can't seem to get it out ive stripped the inlet manifolds off and a fair bit of other bits to get to it and undone what looks like the right studs it's loose but seems held by other bits, is there an easier way or am I being stupid?
Thanks in advance
