Mercedes Sprinter DPF Removal
The Mercedes Sprinter 311, both the 2.2CDi and the 3.0CDi versions suffer from the blocked DPF Filter problems. The DPF on the Mercedes Sprinter 311 is very large and if you’re lucky enough to have one that hasn’t blocked up yet, you may find its a target from people who steal cats (catalytic converters).
Why would someone steal my DPF?
Because they’re easy to remove, contain precious metals and if a new unit is worth £1500+ how much do you think someone would pay for a second-hand one? – If you have your DPF stolen from your van and was being quoted £1500+ for a replacement unit, I’m sure you’d pay £500 for a second-hand unit to get you by.
My Sprinter 311 DPF is blocked, what are my options?
You’ll be told my dealerships that you have two options, the second not being available if it is completely blocked due to the risk of causing other problems – not to mention having your vehicle catch alight.
- Replacement DPF Filter – at a cost of £1500+ (+Labour & +VAT).
- Forced DPF Regeneration – this raises the temperature above 800 degrees celcius but if you’re not careful, you could cause more damage if the DPF is completely blocked.
