Chosen Solution

The EGR valve on your VW is also known as Kombi-Valve or Secondary Air Injection Valve. In general the EGR valve is not a serviceable part. As you can see from the images on your other question, it is a a sealed component and does not really allow you any access to the working parts.The only thing that you can try and do is to clean the passages from excessive carbon buildup. You would do that with some carb cleaner.
