Default DPF FILTER out of stock...anyidea on an ETA?

Took my car in with the usual DPF filter and CEL lights on. Dealer will fortunately cover the repair but they have no parts in stock and no idea on when they will have them.



Has anyone heard when VW will have DPF filters back in stock?

it took over 2 months for mine. others state it takes up to 6 months. either havce them supply a free loaner. or just keep driving. anything that would fail as a result of the bad dpf is covered. engine, turbo, anything in the exhaust or fuel system.

The more cars go out of warranty, the more this seems like an opportunity for the aftermarket, no?

as long as the ceramic hasnt cracked, the dpf can be cleaned. also many of these are being sold in non-emissions states. so vw knows what we do with them...

Mine was changed in October; it took about 2 weeks for them to get mine in (and 4 others for waiting customers). I'm in a major metropolitan area though with a lot of pull, but I'm not positive how much that actually affects wait times.

As the cars go out of warranty they will either be scrapped, deleted or used/cleaned ones put on. I doubt any aftermarket mfg will gear up for a diminishing number of cars. Many will be crashed and totaled even before warranty runs out. Out of warranty cars still on the road will be pretty old and/or high mileage cars with little book value. Just my belief.

The dealer told me they have no idea when parts will be available "world wide back order"



I got a free loaner but I want my car back asap! Does anyone know who I could call at VW that can track down the parts? The dealer is not exactly inspiring confidence

Yup- same here in Boston-"nation wide backorder". initially brought my car in for cracked DPF in November. Had to fight for a loaner but took over 2 months for the parts to come in and officially got the car back 1/31/20.

they are backordered nation wide bud. your on a list. demand has overwhelmed the supply. as soon as they are in stock they are put on vehicles. They dont have a stock. all you can do is call the dealer and ask how far down the list you are. If your motor blows... they have to replace it. just drive it. it took over 2 months for mine to come in. and calling all the time and complaining will not get you further up the list. just call and ask what number in line you are. they normally get a shipment monthly. its NOT an ON-HAND part.

I would imagine even the dealerships don't know when they will get stocked until they are shipped.
