The BMW 5 Series is a great Executive car packed full of the latest technology and gadgets, however this vehicle also suffers from the unpleasant blocked DPF (Diesel Particulate Filter) problem and almost always ends up being a costly expense you do not need.
As a company, we have been removing DPF filters from vehicles since 2007 and the BMW 5 Series has been a very popular model for us, having recorded just over 1500 BMW 5-Series DPF Removals we are without doubt one of the UK’s leading specialists in BMW DPF Removal services.
Depending on the exact model of your BMW 5-Series the DPF filter will either be located directly after the turbocharger or down the middle section of the exhaust system under the vehicle. Regardless of which setup you have, the filters are still prone to blocking up and a lot of the time it is due to failed regenerations that the DPF blocks up. If you have too many failed regenerations stored on the Engine ECU, you may find it will not allow you to regenerate further and then have to go into a local dealership to have a “Forced Regeneration” procedure carried out. A forced regeneration can cost between £90 – £200 depending on the dealership carrying out the work and the length of time taken to complete a successful forced regeneration – however, there are no guarantees that this procedure will work and you may find yourself back in the same situation again very quickly.
When the DPF blocks up on the BMW 5 Series you may experience the following symptoms:
- Loss Of Power / No Throttle Response
- Glow Plug / Engine Management Light On
- Poor Fuel Consumption
- Particulate Filter Fault On Screen
- Particulate Emission Filter Overload
- Hard to Start / Sometimes Non-Starter
- Limp Mode – Restricted Performance
- Fault Codes: 480A, 481A and P242F etc…
These are all signs of a blocked DPF and ignoring these symptoms may lead on to further more expensive problems such as damaged turbochargers, damaged injectors and in some extreme cases even complete engine failure.
Once the vehicle comes into one of our nationwide workshops, we will go on to carry out our extensive fully custom DPF Removal session.
