To reset the EGR light

The operation of the exhaust gas recirculation is to be checked every 30,000 miles. To ensure that this limit was not exceeded, the speedometer is fitted with a special counter triggering an ‘EGR’ warning light when this mileage is reached.

Remove speedometer from dash (there is no need to remove wires off the back). No special tools required, just grab the trim around speedo and wiggle the unit out, it may take some time if it’s been in there awhile. HINT Upon reinstall, rub some talcum powder around rubber seal, it will make removal next time much easier!

Get a flashlight and shine it down through the opening in the dash. You will see a black box with a white button, depress the button with small jewelers screwdriver. That’s all that’s to it!
