Like this Removing the EGR valve on a Citroen C3, but without actually removing the EGR from the car. Move it just enough to slip the plate in.

If you want a blanking plate, try here - EGR Blanking Plate for a Citroen C3 Diesel (ebay)

If you just want to fit the blanking plate, you don't need to remove the EGR valve, and hence separate it from the feed pipe.

EGR valves don't just fail by being dirty and a non functioning EGR valve may not even be faulty.
