Diesel Particulate Filter Replacement

If you own a diesel car, you probably have a diesel particulate filter, however, you may not know exactly what this is or how to maintain it.
Diesel particulate filters have been fitted to diesel-fuel cars for almost two decades now – but if not maintained, or if tampered with there could be serious consequences for your car.
we are often asked to remove a Diesel Particulate Filter from a car, but in fact, it is illegal. Owners face fines if caught (up to £1,000 for cars and £2,500 for vans) and removing a DPF can also invalidate your car insurance policy.

Instead, take car of your diesel particulate filter and it will serve you well. This article on the RAC website is a useful guide to the whole DPF issue and is full of useful information.

If you do have a problem with your DPF and it needs replacement, we can help. Our technicians can remove the faulty unit using the same techniques we employ for failed catalytic converters at a fraction of the cost of a main dealer replacement exhaust system.
