Customer Question
How do I remove...

How do I remove the exaust filter from a 2012 Kenworth

Mechanic's Assistant: What's the make/model/year of your truck? Engine type?

2012 KW Model 660 Pacar 455 HP

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your truck yourself? What have you tried so far?

No not fixing myself. I have had the truck checked with a computer and the filter need to be cleaned and I am planning to remove it and carry to a specialist for cleaning.

Mechanic's Assistant: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix. The Heavy Truck Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts.

Thanks

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the truck mechanic to know before I connect you?

I have just put a new EGR Valve and Nox sensor and boost pressure sensor, Pre heat sensor, Nox Sensor, R & R Doser Valve and doser injector. When the Check engine light came back on, the computer now indicates the filter needs cleaning. We did a re gen last night and the check engine light came back on with in 20 miles of driving. Everything else was green on the computer.
