DPF Removal DPF Delete DPF Cleaning
Is your DPF warning light on?
Are you wondering why your DPF light has come on? If so it means that your DPF is partially blocked and needs to regenerate (clean itself). You could experience loss of engine power until a regeneration has taken place. This could unfortunately be a start of your problems with the DPF. Once the DPF light has come on you should drive according to manafacturers instructions (stated in handbook) it’s usually something like 4th or 5th gear at around 2500 RPM for approximatly 20 minutes to complete the regeneration of the DPF sucessfully.
If your DPF light as well as other lights such as the Engine Management light and Glow Plug light or any other warnings on your cars information system are on, then this will mean that your DPF is almost completely blocked.
In this case, your car will almost certainly run with less power (limp mode) You can choose to get your DPF replaced (often costing between £1000 and £2000 and in some cases even more. With our DPF Removal or DPF Delete service you can have your DPF removed completely at a fraction of the cost.

How we do it
We physically remove the section of exhaust that houses the vehicles DPF filter. Then remove the DPF filter itself. Once that is complete we then re-fit the section of exhaust that used to contain the DPF to the vehicle and make a change within the vehicles software to stop fault codes being stored in the ECU or the regeneration proccess being started.
The method we use means that your car will not fail the MOT test as the new criteria that has been added to the test in February 2014 stating that a visual inspection of the DPF Filter must be carried out to see that it is still in place. Most DPF’s are hidden behind undrtrays in a location that cat be veiwed by a tester anyway as they are not allowed to remove anything to do the inspection.
If you have your vehicles DPF Removed with us then the exhaust system will look just as it did when you bought the car in to us and therefore will pass the test.
Thats it, complete, and looks just as it did before the work was carried out, except your without the limp mode, reduced performance and poor MPG.
