    Unless yours is an auto , i don't think you'll have one fitted..

    it was only the auto saloon/hatch, the signum and the vec estate that had them fitted... If you think it needs work, then contact your local dealer who will be able to tell youif your car falls within the range of the recall..

    a word of warning thou..our 150 auto went in for the DPF recall, and it's not been right since..now they have it more often than us...

    yours will have one, being an estate.. as above, if you haven't had a recall notice then you can always drop in to see if it comes under the re-work..

    I had mine replaced last week when I had my parking distance sensors fitted. The dealer never mentioned anything about it until I dropped the car off - they just said it needed doing and that they may as well do it at the same time. Mine is a CDTI 150 with an Auto Box although I haven't a clue what the filter is for????
