If you have small hands it can be easy. The space between firewall and EGR is tight but it wasn't too difficult to remove. The vacuum hose at the bottom was hard to pull off and I ended up cracking it and had to splice it. It was more difficult to re-install the EGR then remove it. I had a difficult time with keeping the gasket aligned while bolting it in to the lower tube. I took a few attempts. I suggest when replacing the EGR leave the mounting bolts loose so you can more easily align the metal tube. I would tighten the metal tube at the bottom of EGR first then tighten the upper two mounting bolts on top. It took me about 5 minutes to remove and 15 minutes to replace. I would be sure to clean the IAC too after cleaning the EGR. I sprayed throttle bottle cleaner down the bottom hole located on the throttle body and let soak about 15 minutes then start and run the engine a minute and repeat the process. This helped smooth the idle while stopped at a light. It also stopped the idle from shaking and almost stalling the car out at a traffic stop when the engine was warm.

If you have a P0401 code from a CEL, the first thing is to check the EGR vacuum modulator. It is a little well usually next to the EGR. Pop the cap off and dust the little sponge inside. Sometimes this gets stuffed up with carbon particles and causes recirculation problems. You should clean the tubes hooked to it while you are there. Reset the code and see if the light comes back.
Replacing the EGR is not a tidy job. It is an expensive part to replace and you will disconnect the three hoses and dismantle it from engine by two nuts. Save it for the later if the previous trick fails to work.

You connect it to the metal-tube under the EGR vacuum modulator. Vacuum modulator is behind the throttle-body manifold, and it is black. small-can like appearance.
