Dpf Removals - Did You Fail Your Mot?

19 posts in this topic

Hi Guys,

So this is in essence a survey I suppose - I would like to gather information based on your experiences!

As most of you know, the MOT regulation changes in February, meant that any car fitted with a DPF originally and having it removed is now an MOT failure.

So the question is, if you have had your DPF Removed, and had an MOT since September - what was the outcome? Did the tester notice that you dont have a DPF? Did they not care? or did you get bitten by this change?

Posted it in the wrong place, multiple tab prob

I haven't gutted my DPF yet but i had a mot under the new rules, my vehicle got some advisory on smoke being too clean and engine cover plus undertray blocking certain components so no visual check was done on the DPF

Wrong topic lol

how can "smoke being too clean" that just doesn't make sense???? like somebody inspecting Chernobyl and saying the radiation is too safe?????

I would guess it means appearing to give off less emissions than manufactures data but actually giving off more therefore foul play maybe the case or just leaking from elsewhere.

:lol: no foul play at work. Dpf is completely clean no build up of soot therefore no smoke. It's too clean for a reading on the smoke test machine so no reading was recorded that's what the advisory mean

Has anyone recently had an MOT and passed or failed with the DPF Removed?

nah, I dont need it as my car doesnt have one. I am primarily "researching" for and on the forum so that if anyone wants it done we can say "90% of people passed / failed there MOT".

i think i have found a place that should pass a car thats had the dpf removed, where im going to get my car terracleaned, they do dpf removals aswell as mots,services etc, so in theory if they remove dpfs surely they pass mots thats had them removed lol

I would say get the terraclean after the removal that way you will clean more of the exhaust but also should get better performance for the terraclean itself as it won't be choking on the way out
