    Yes, exactly. But does not need to be the case. I have removed & blanked EGR to enable fitment of Exhaust Brake, & removed DPF because it needs EGR to regenerate correctly , Exhaust pipe is nice & silver grey almost like a petrol engine. Blows no smoke nor leaves soot under truck whatsoever. Oil stays golden brown well past 10,000km after oil change ( was black after 50km with EGR) . Its all in the EEV tune .

    Iveco also voided my warranty I might add. But thats well & truly expired now anyway.

    They turn them away and put a note on the computer against the vehicle.
    What is the effect? Is Toyota refusing to honour the warranty because the DPF has been removed.

    I would imagine so. They would be able to claim that the missing DPF would have an effect on the engine somehow. Given the DPF seems to be the biggest issue with these vehicles (not that I've had any trouble with mine) I can see why some would remove them rather than spend the money on a replacement or even just to prevent the weekly smoke screens they vehicles produce.

    An easy get out for any warranty claim.There is more that has to be modded than just removing the DPF,as fault codes come up,etc.

    I think their are legalities involved as well,as its part of the emissions system.

    I know,people mod vehicles all the time,even my D4 has the Egr's deleted and blanked.

    But i wouldn't do something like removing the DPF,then take it to the dealer for a service,thats asking for issues,in my opinion.

    And as a side note,some of our vans have DPF's,never had an issue.They have a switch to initiate a burn off if needed,we have never had to use it.Probably as Homestar said,due to the driving we do,they are on the road all day.

    If the DPF was removed then the vehicle no longer complies with the roadworthy conditions required when it was new, so I can understand Toyota saying it wouldn't honour the warranty on a vehicle which the owner has made unroadworthy. I expect making it unroadworthy would also make the insurance invalid. Is that right?

    Probably,but many people don't care.

    Another good example is the number of vehicles on the roads that have huge lifts and big wheels with massive negative offsets.

    A lot more obvious than a DPF that is missing.

    You can punch out the guts of a DPF leave the housing intact and the dealer would never know , It wont block up & the software wont detect any pressure build up across the front and back so wont need to run a Regen burn.

    It just so happens a Gearing Dynamics exhaust brake fits perfectly one the flange on the back of my DPF so I left it there.
