    Default DPF Recall

    Car went for service today and they have informed me they have replaced the Diesel Particulate Filter due to a product recall.

    Not sure if any of the other estate boys know of this recall, but they are all being done as and when the car goes in for service.

    Waiting for the car to come back now from the dealers.

    Have to say that there prices are a bit steep, they rang to inform me that my brakes need doing and would i authorise payment

    for a laughed asked how much.
    £111 for the front
    £98 for the rear

    i thought about this for all of a second and gave them a reply of no, your ok.

    Rang the local motor factors
    £19 for the front
    £25 for the rear
    Guess what i'm doing this weekend

    How can VX charge so much for something this simple and cheap to do, it's no wonder that dealers get a bad name

    Recall is to do a Burn of the filter "Regeneration". This is done with Tech 2
    They run the car up to temp 1200'C on the filter and make sure it regenerates. If it does it's ok. If it dosen't it will be replaced.
