EGR tube broke in the accordion section.

See attached photo. (View from top looking down past the exhaust manifold.) I'm trying to get the "bottom" end of it out of the exhaust pipe.

Does anyone know what size that nut is? 15/16 is too small and 1 inch is too big. (Hoping a half of can of penetrating oil will do its magic overnight.)

Are those EGR tubes still available new?

I have one still on the manifold if you want it just pay for shipping, just as long as I can get it off without breaking something.

hmm, dont remember the size, what I did was cut it and put a penny in the hole with the nut on top of the one your pointing at, works like a charm

I removed the egr tube which was cracked in the same place. I ground off the broken flexible section, took one of the end parts to the hardware store. Looked around and found that a oldschool gas can spiral spout. Did some fitment work and had it welded together just nicely. No leaks and very cheap fix.
