With recent chat about DPF issues I thought i'd just have a shuftie at whats available and is it worth carrying as a spare (for next years trip). trouble is there appears to be 2 rather different options that are supposed to be compatable with my van.

So i may need to take it off or get up close and personal to check.
But where is it. Google is not my friend.

They are cheap enough, but I don’t think I would bother with a spare. There are loads of sensors to go wrong and you can’t possibly carry them all.

Not sure is it’s a high failure item though am happy to be corrected? I might get one myself if so. 😂

Actually, just changed one on my S Max so I might be talking absolute piffle.

There is an older, less reliable unit and a newer slightly more reliable unit. From the photo, don't know which is which. The wiring is slightly different, although I believe there is a wiring adaptor available. Horrible things.
