Question about 2004 Dodge Grand Caravan
I'm trying to replace the EGR valve on a caravan, but having issue getting access to one of the mounting bolt that's near the alternator. Any ideas on how to get access to it. The socket catches on the alternator and won't go on straight.
This is how I do it, maybe it will work for you too. Remove the top bolt. Using a prybar, roll the egr backwards towards the engine. This roll is also in the direction the bottom bolt has to turn to come out. From the new angle you can use a wrench or 1/4 drive wobble on it. When it gets back to the point you can't get the wrench on it, use needlenose pliers on the threaded end to finish the removal. Going back is a little tricky, start the bottom bolt and run it in almost all the way and then roll the egr forward to start the top bolt. Tighten the bottom the best you can first. Tighten the top bolt last, this puts more pressure against the bottom bolt making it tighter. Otherwise you have to remove the alternator.
