A poorly type D EGR. Same issue as you're having and EGR was replaced to a type D 15000km ago according to paperwork supplied. 2012 Multivan + 105k km. Although the EGR label look suspect.

Latest news… been to VW main dealership. Quote arriving tomorrow. Estimated around £9-10k I’ve also spoken at length to another special. He would replace the engine and blank of the EGR and re tune etc. £6.5k. The reason for blanking off is that from his experience the newer EGRs are still not completely foolproof. The upgrade VW gave them was to coat the inside lining which he believes is just putting a sticking plaster on the problem. Once blanked off he has never had any issues. He’s done around 100 so far!! The twin turbo may( probably likely) need replacing too after 83k miles. VW said they’d put the old one back again. I’m waiting for another quote from an independent who will keep the D type EGR…

Sounds like you’ve got your answer. Does blanking off the EGR cause any MOT issues?
