I have a BMW E90 2007 with a M47TU2 engine, Can anyone tell me where the EGR valve is, how to get it off and how to clean it (with what?)

Thanks

BMW use valve overlap to serve EGR. Most if not all of BMW engines DO NOT have an EGR valve. They use a system on the engine that they have named Vaneos. This system changes the cam shaft timing so that it allows exhaust gas to remain in the cylinder during the inlet stroke. This has the same effect as an EGR system. www.bimmerforums.co.uk has a very good and detailed explanation.

this is a Q & A, it serves no use if people tell you to search for something... If someone is googling the question I asked, they'll come here and get a non-helpful answer and go elsewhere.. –  Michael Baldry Nov 19 '13 at 7:52

Also, your answer doesn't answer any of my specific questions 1) where is it located 2) how do you get it off 3) what is best to clean it with –  Michael Baldry Nov 19 '13 at 7:53

Thats a better answer :) Can you edit your original and I'll accept it –  Michael Baldry Nov 19 '13 at 20:26

As Allan mentioned, this engine does not have an EGR valve.
