Default EGR Delete Troubles

Hello, I am trying to delete the EGR on a 2015.5 LML. I have most everything removed except for the 3 bolts that hold the egr to the up-pipe. I cannot seem to get those three bolts loose, or barely get a wrench properly seated.. Is there a trick or a tool or something I am missing? Crows foot didnt work.. Any ideas appreciated.. Thanks

Get a buddy and a breaker bar, one up top to hold the socket in place, the other to pull on the bar. You can grab em from the wheel well or from below.

The new body style trucks are a whole lot more difficult than 11 thru 14 trucks. May have to jack the cab off the frame a few inches.

There is enough slack/play in everything to get it off the frame a few inches. There's a ground in the passenger wheel well that needs unbolted iirc. Just pay attention and go slow.

I take them all out but the back two, which I just loosen but leave in. Then jack up front of cab only unless you have alift. There are 4 on each side

You can do it without lifting the cab. If you go at those bolts from the wheel well you can get on them and get them out.

Have you attempted this on a 2015+?
