Re: CRD Filters

$206 is about the price for the oil. Oil filter should only be $55. Ring up their spare parts and ask them HIW much, then phone service dept.

Re: Is DPF issue for 2014 CRD fixed now?

I'd just be interested in the link between oil level and DPF issues and how that works.

I think it is almost guaranteed that as soon as we have the new one, the old one will turn up.

Re: Replacement Key Fob $620

$160 to program. Dealer reckons that they can't program the US ones as they don't work.

But how would we ever really know?

I had mine originally done but the dealer. Found at they sublet wheel alignments to the tyre guy across the road. I doubt they gave him the specs. It certainly didn't fix it.

Re: Wheel Alignment Specs JGC with Quadralift

If you lock the air susp at aero mode then turn off the engine, that is where it will stay until you either unlock the air susp or drive over 8 km/hr.

Yep, thats it. Although the one in the photo doesn't look quite high enough, (probability just a pic of a typical one) but it is of that type. They are a stiff material that simply concertinas up.

It's about US$20 per test and an extra US$10 to include the TBN in the results. TBN is important in that it shows how much additive is left in the oil, i.e. how much life is left in the oil.

Re: CRD oil on special

That's OK, MS-11106 does involve further testing / approvals. The point whether MS11106 is actually required or not is a different point.
