Default 99 Accord EGR Warranty Question

I have a 99 Accord V6 with 110,000 miles. The Malfunction Indicator
Lamp came on, and I ran the code and got P0401 Insufficient EGR Flow.
I took it into the dealer and they said that the car has already had
the service bulletin # 99-085 done to it (Must have had it done before
I took ownership of the car). The wanted to charge me $300 to clean
the egr valve and surrounding areas.

My question is, Should they fix it for free since it supposedly was
already fixed previously? Also, Is there a way to verify that the car
does indeed have the bulletin # 99-085 done to it? Can I view the
pipe/kit?

I was under the impression that once the car got the kit, this problem
would no longer occur.

Thanks for the help!!!

I think the EGR extended warrenty was for 80k and you are far past that. If
the dealer wants too much go to a qualified service shop or pull it yourself
and clean it. It probably won't fix your P0401 error as your Cat is probably
bad
