I never had the old style undertray fitted to mine so don't know what it looked like. Being a bigger tray I expect it would be better at keeping the underside clean however, some folks seem to have the impression that the old style undertray would keep the Diesel Particulate Filter warmer by shielding it from the wind and I don't think that's the case.

Having looked at mine I see my DPF is fitted with an aluminium shroud which means the undertray wouldn't make any difference to it (see attachment of DPF with half of the shield fitted).

Thanks for that guys. I'm in Liverpool but enquired at my local Vauxhall. So see what happens when they get back to me.

I think it was more to do with the fact that the old style tray covered everything and when the oil leaked from the timing chain case or front seal it soaked into the tray which appears to be made of a fibre board. Unfortunately where the oil collected is about 20 mms from the exhaust which gets very hot and has in some cases I understand caused a fire. I removed mine when the recall came as we were going away with the caravan and things do get hotter towing, the tray had a stain but was by no means wet with oil and had been fine for three years although not sure when the oil leak started.
Interesting to see your photo of the dpf Victor, where exactly is it in the system?

Yes Dave,I'm well aware of the whole story about the undertray, I was just pointing out the position re the DPF.

It's a close-coupled DPF which means it's bolted straight on to the engine exhaust manifold.
