A couple of better quality photos from my CRD after my poor photo yesterday.
The resistor goes into the middle two on mine, on Boro Al's Merc it looks like they go in the end two.
The whole process was simple.
1. Remove intake pipe. Flat blade screwdriver to undo the jubilee clips.
2. Pull up the grey tab on the swirl motor plug and remove the plug. Grey tab snapped on mine during removal.
3. Check the wiring in the plug.
4. Fashion the resistor legs to fit the plug.
5. Fit the resistor to the Grey wire and the Red/Green wire sockets in the plug.
6. Re-fit the intake pipe and secure the jubilee clips.
I've been for a 30-odd mile run out today on a mix of roads, included giving it a boot on the A43/A45 nr Northampton. As soon as I reached destination, I pulled the engine cover and I checked the temp of the area the resistor is in, warm, but not too hot to touch and hold. EVIC reckoned 31 MPG average, which wasn't bad for the types of roads.
Again, I can't thank the likes of Boro Al enough for coming up with the solution.

I gave mine a 10 mile run at fast motorway speeds today to see if any problems cropped up with the EGR and swirl delete combined,nothing to report no eml no limp mode, just the egr error code, but running perfect.
