    Dpf question

    Hi all,my question is this,do all the insignia diesel's have the dpf,I only ask because I have done the led trick as soon as I bought the car, and not once have I seen it light up,it lights up if I put the rear demister on,I was wondering if mine has a dpf or has the previous owner taken it off,this is my first diesel car,where would I locate the dpf to see if it's fitted or not???? Thanks in advance and please excuse my ignorance.

    Yes they all have them,,could have been removed,cut open,gutted,then welded back up,then put back on the car and deleted off the ECU ,how long have you had it ?

    Only cause stress for the owners who don't let them complete regens

    If it has gone then be warned that new MOT testing equipment is on the way that can tell its been removed...which will mean huge bills to have a new one fitted and a new re map...

    Not sure when its coming but it is...

    Requirement is there since February 2014. According to DfT its an offence to drive a vehicle without one where it was fitted at manufacture as the vehicle will not meet type approval.

    This is the problem....current mot test wont pick this up because the emissions are hardly any different and unless they can spot the weld on the Dpf it will pass hence the new test coming in
