The EGR valve has two connectors, one to the actuator (the big one) and one to the EGR temperature sensor (the small one). That is what those two connectors you are holding are for.

 

That clear vacuum line looks like maybe something from a PO. All of my (2003) vacuum lines are either black rubber or black plastic. There are two larger (black) plastic lines from under the plenum, one goes to the rear and one goes toward the front. The one towards the front is connected in the center just below the firewall in the last picture with a special snap connector.

 

I can't guarantee all of my lines are original and unmolested but here are pictures of my U.S.spec (with EGR etc.).

Looks like I accidentally moved two of the pictures or something and can't edit that post anymore (why?) so here are the links again.
