Nice easy and free fix!

This is the offending lobe which needs greased:

Hi mate!

Having the same egr issue.
4CAE - egr position sensor signal error thrown.

Question is how the heck did you manage to get that black plastic cap off the EGR? I can only release the clip on one side, the other being rather inaccessible.
