The blockage is usually at where the steel pipe bolts to the intake. The carbon that plugs it is not from the EGR. It is PCV oily vapors inside the intake that bake out on the extremely hot (by comparison) connection. You will not have to remove the pipe just pull it back and the blockage will be in view.
