Side note: 103k miles on it.....

Vw recently informed me that the collision shop put an aftermarket intake box on it after i hit a deer, and that it might lead to premature filling of the dpf.... so I’m wondering since the collision shop put a lifetime warranty on the stuff they did, if I can make them pay for the fix.... or if it’s gonna be too hard to prove that it’s their doing

damn thats some bad luck. seems like vw is denying any post emissions fix warranty work because of the non approved air intake. dpf delete plus associated hardware is going to cost around $1.5k if you DIY.

Its been a long time since I checked up on this forum but I just stumbled across this. I would definitely advise to just delete the dpf if it was something you were already considering, its a night and day difference with a good tune. But if thats not the case I have a dpf with only 25k on it. Its been sitting in a covered trashcan under my deck for 5 years though... I have no use for it, pretty sure its still in good shape its been covered at least.

Did you get the emissions modification done? The warranty VW gives you after covers just about everything in the engine.

Why not just put a stock air box in and take it in?

sounds like the stock air box was destroyed in the collision with a deer. i guess the collision shop used a non-OEM box.

What if you put a oem airbox on it then took it in to try to get it covered under warranty? Maybe to a different dealer. If you wanted to try it I would let my dpf go for free if you covered shipping

There is a Rawtek DPF delete in the classifieds now. That plus a Malone .5 tune and say good bye to the DPF. Since we have a 2011 I have already bought a Rawtek DPF delete.

How is an airbox going to cause the dpf to fail prematurely? Bad air filter letting a bunch of sand through that's lodging in the dpf??

I wonder if the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act would have something to say about it or not.

id likely have better luck going after the collision shop that used the NON-OEM intake components, saying that they caused a malfunction by using the NON-OEM parts...
