Question 2004 x5 3d replacing egr valve

Is this hard to do,I am pretty good at mechanics,
garage want a bundle to do job,
if some one had pictures it would be great.
surprised there is no mentioned of this valve on a tread
as this problem seems to be a common fault
with x5s, thick black smoke on acceleration ,
i think its located at the exhaust manifold
