Klarius replacement DPF kit designed to help Mercedes Sprinter vans get back on the road
3rd September 2014
As scrap metal prices continue to rise, the risk of having valuable parts stolen from vehicles has increased, particularly CATs and DPFs that can have a precious metal loading in the catalyst matrix. To help drivers and operators repair vandalised Sprinter vans, Klarius has launched a complete replacement kit with everything the fitter needs on one order number.
One vehicle which has been particularly badly hit by metal theft is the Mercedes Sprinter van, so, rather than just offer the DPF part replacement, Klarius has helped-out end users by launching a replacement kit, that includes all the key exhaust, CAT and DPF components, plus the hangers and sealing material.
Klarius UK Sales manager Simon Hutchinson comments, “After talking to our customers, garages and fitters about this issue, it became obvious that just a replacement DPF wouldn’t help fully repair these vans, the criminal doesn’t just remove the DPF neatly leaving the exhaust, they cut through the middle part of the exhaust and take the entire section with them, this means we needed to provide not only the CAT and DPF, but also the connecting pipes, rear section with silencer, pressure pipes and mountings in one kit.”
As with all Klarius parts, each kit is fully type approved, manufactured, tested and fully test fitted to real-world vehicles at the company’s midlands manufacturing and R&D centre in Cheadle. The premium quality kit is convenient to order, competitively priced and has the unique Klarius Fit First Time guarantee. Klarius is the only manufacturer to design and test all parts on actual vehicles of the correct model and year.
It is also worth emphasising that Klarius CATs and DPFs have full size monoliths and advanced platinum based metal coatings and so perform as the original part would do, this ensures correct exhaust back pressure, cleaner and more efficient engine running and no annoying MIL warning lights on the dash.
Kits for the Mercedes Sprinter 2007-2009 P/N MZ573C and Mercedes Sprinter 2009- P/N MZ574B are available now.
