407 Hdi 2.7 DPF tank and Eolys union plug

Post by 407 »

I finally got under the car to check where the DPF fluid tank was

I assume this means I have a white union plus and so need DPX42 ? (Vin supplied before)

Do anyone recommend / used either the JLM or Shultz "alternatives" which seem cheap at the price.

( I did ask insuppa (they sell Shultz) and they said it was fine for my VIN)

No that's not correct - your build date is 10896, so needs Eolys 176, not the earlier DPX42 (so do not put this in your tank)!

Eolys 176 was replaced with Infineum F7995 when the old Eolys 176 stocks ran out. So you can use Infinueum F7995.

Thanks Marc

Is this plug in the pic the correct union plug (and refill port) ? Looks white to me (or maybe a faded yellow)

According to the Walkers chart etc its supposed to be green ?

cheers

The colours of the click fit unions change - that's why it's important to go on the build date. In your vehicle's case it can be green or white.

Eolys 176 fittings can be Green or White but as said this is only a guide & the only way to confirm is by build date.

Eolys 176 is still available??

Was it not Eolys Extend that replaced Infinueum F7995 as this is now obsolete?

For the 407 for build date 9492 to 12075 it still showing as Eolys 176 (or Infineum F7995) but only changes to 'Extend' for the 407 from build 12076.

So I'm just putting this up as it is still listed in 2021- but if it has changed, no doubt the dealer will substitute it.
