    Default Diesel Pariculate Filters...

    Has anyone had or heard of any problems with these?

    I know someone with a Seat TDi 170 and after only 600 miles the filter has clogged so badly that the stealer wants £1500 to replace and says its not a warranty part!

    Shocking !!

    It seems most of the new cars of today have the same problem, Vx have PSA have, Skoda have, the list goes on, in a mo they're gonna have to scrap this idea altogether, and none of them will admit it's a fault either.

    well having seen your avatar Ian I doubt mine will ever clear as I never drive over 28mph to generate enough heat to clear it.

    done 28000 miles with one. didn't know i had one until joining the forum. no problems..

    my question of the day is.... do you need it and can it be removed and the car will still run correctly. Will the ecu flag it up as a fault. Can the ecu be reprogrammed so it doesn't look or operate it.

    and another thing, what if.....................
