Company description
How is the DPF Removal done?
To remove the DPF we need to read the original software from your vehicle's ECU. We use an interface to our dedicated laptop system and can remove all DPF structures in the software. We can then programme the software to the ECU, remove the DPF from the vehicle and the temperature and pressure sensor removed from the exhaust (or we can leave it in if you want the vehicle to look like a stock arrangement/original). Once this process has been undertaken the vehicle will no longer attempt regenerations and no black smoke will appear, no DPF check light or engine management light will illuminate and you will have noticeably better MPG!

What is a DPF (Diesel Particulate Filter)?
European manufacturer standards have made particulate filters as commonplace in diesel vehicle exhausts as catalytic converters are in petrol ones. They were introduced to reduce diesel particulate (soot) emissions by around 80% and they work just like a 'trap', catching bits of soot in the exhaust. Think of the bag in the vacuum cleaner; just like with any filter they have to be emptied regularly to maintain performance. For a DPF this process is known as 'regeneration' where the collected soot is burnt off at a high temperature to leave a tiny ash residue.

DPF Removal
AB Service Centre can now offer a DPF removal service. This usually requires us to have your vehicle for a few hours, remove the exhaust and the particulate filter, re-programme your ECU and install DPF removal software. This option removes the need for constant regeneration costs or the possibility of having to replace your DPF altogether.

      Dpf removal

      by on 04 November 2013

      I took my car here after being terribly frustrated with local garages not being able to help my with my DPF problem on my Mazda 6. It was a bit of a track as I live in Hereford but I am well pleased with the results. No more limp mode and no more problems. Really nice professional outfit. Very highly recommend anyone with the same problem to go here.
