I'm a newbie
Realise that this question is how long is a piece of string.My 2020 Ducato needs one of above (a small sensor for the particulate filter).Per my local Fiat dealer it's on back order from Italy but re covid and brexit they have no idea how long it will be.Wondering if any one has similar experience and how long they had to wait.I can see various trips we have booked disappearing over the horizon.

You could telephone other fiat dealers to see if they have stock.
It may mean driving to buy but you could be waiting many months for a new supply to your dealer.

Firstly I assume this has been diagnosed? It seems strange on such a new MH!

However, Yes I had a problem with mine also a few weeks ago - amber warning light on dash - self tested to find fault code.
I ordered one from Ebay "newpartautomotive" - Under £50 and arrived promptly - it is exactly the same product FIAT supply, same part number and product codes.

It is easy refit but I assume you are under warranty? You will need to consider this.

Anyway if interested - Drove the MH up onto levelling ramps, chocked the wheels and crawled underneath.
It is located above the exhaust system and is fairly easy to locate and refit. Don't do this if the exhaust is hot!
Two bolts, two pipes and electrical connector. Make sure you connect the pipes the correct way round! You need to replace the crimped hose clips with new ones.
Then take the MH out on a forced DPF regeneration run, then reset the alarm code. You can purchase a tester online also approx £60 ish. The warning light will not go out without being reset.
All good - well mine is anyhow.

There are some good videos on internet and instructions if you are unsure.

OR you could go to a non FIAT specialist and ask them to fit the item for you. It is unlikely a FIAT dealer will fit a third party part but you can always ask.

Hope this helps - it saved me a fortune.

Good Luck
