Anyone know if ckeaning the inlet manifold and egr is straightforward. I used to have to do it on my old freelander but that was more basic than my kuga

Well...it is a real pain in the *ss to take off the intake manifold.
I've done it once and soon need to do again.
The bolts are different length, wires need to be moved and so on.

That would fail the MOT in the UK as the entire emissions control system is now tested.

Lucky you are in Estonia.

Perhaps. Here they only watch the particulates coming out of the tailpipes.
For the last 4 years I have had no EGR and no DPF. And results are very very good in my opinion.
3.0 is the maximum of allowed measured particulates. And I have had 0.29 and 0.35 for the last two times the actual result.
But it would be good for the engine to have the intake an EGR clean.
You wont believe how much black carbon comes out of the intake...because of the EGR.

Just take your time, label each bolt you remove. But you will need to take off the battery and injector wires.
Since the intake is plastic, you can only do mechanical and somewhat chemical cleaning. NO BURNING.
Ask me if you have any questions.

Thanks for the replies. I have a bit of a hesitation in the engine when pulling away. Thought it might be the egr and inlet being blocked. I have cleaned inlet manifolds before with oven cleaner, did the trick then.

I take it taking the battery off and the injector wires is to get at the egr

No. Removing battery is needed because you can't take off the intake. The injector wires are in the way.
EGR is on the right side of the intake and is not in the way. You can remove and clean the EGR after removing the engine cover only.

Had a day off today so managed to get the manifold and egr off. Both were a bit gunked up so had a good clean. Took it to our local garage after for a re mapping. Drives great now. Just the thermostat to change now

For the thermostat job. Prepare yourself to own a set of TORX sockets.  Because the design is made so you need to remove the bolts that hold the thermostat on the head.

I still have that style of thermostat on my 1989 Audi V8.
But for Kuga it took me about 4h to get off. I took my time. And about 1h to reassemble.
