Through egr outlet on exhaust manifold,guide some 3mm silicone hose down make sure it goes down to vnt and not towards head then squirt in until it just starts to come out of the egr outlet and leave for an hour. Then start to move the vnt actuator until it is free and has full range of movement. Once free assemble pipe and start up donít be alarmed if it kicks smoke out thatís normal. Then give her an Italian tune up
