EGR VALVE

1997 Ford Thunderbird

Engine Performance problem
1997 Ford Thunderbird 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 115000 miles

A friend asked me to replace her egr valve and I just wanted to know the level of difficulty for this task.
I think its at the top/rear of engine behind the upper intake but I cant remember if there is anything in the way.
Can anyone show a pic of the under hood decal if you have a similar vehicle or better yet a view of the location itself?
Thank you,
Dawg
