Default Re: Dealer suggests DPF bracket replace as PM

I was getting ready to either get this #9064926941 bracket or get it done by a dealer and found that it doesnít fit my 2013 2500 144ĒWB Passenger Van. I didnít dive yet under the van which is my next step but can anyone shed some knowledge on this. The drawing of my exhaust system looks different. OP pfflyer listed that bracket for his 2013, is it the model like passenger versus cargo or 2500 verusu 3500 or WB, seems strange.

God bless you brother George for posting that. Dealer was like $70-50 bucks. If you PM Vin number I'll see if I can look it up on the ultimate sprinter service tool. Unless you have access?

Bob/George,
Signature suggests GeorgeRa has a 2013 144.
if so, the would be an OM-642/5G-Tronic-NAG-1 5 speed.
The parts diagram is for a 2014 and later OM-651 4 cylinder/7G-Tronic.
Roger

That's odd, 642 not showing. Need more time to study.

Okay, this is what pops up. Be advised the interface is not user friendly. Looks similar?

MobileCC, if you did see Xentry tips please share if you can find them? I'll do the same.

I worked on something similar but of a much larger scale. The pre-cooler system on the B-1B Bomber comprised of cres steel pre-cooler and about ten feet of 16 inch ducting. I would loosely assemble all the components and attaching turnbuckles and once determined nothing was riding hard on adjacent structure, torque all clamps and attaching fasteners. After installing 99 of the SOB's one becomes proficient.

This would be my approach.

I have a 2011 that has parts that look like post #58. Except when I unbolted mine, it came out in 3 pieces. When I first bought the van I would get a rattle in idle after the engine reached a certain temp and traced it to this bracket. I removed the half connected to the DPF to eliminate the rattle. I drove it like that for several thousand miles figuring it was much better than the two parts rattling. I still think the separated brackets rattling are more troublesome for the flex pipes than no bracket at all. Only after reading here did I find the additional info. and since the replacement bracket was cheap and modified I replaced it last summer. It was a strait forward replacement though not easy. I expected to have alignment issues and just placed each bolt before tightening in a wheel lug type of sequence, but it all tightened down without any apparent opposing forces.

When examining mine, my first thought is that the problem is the bracket is acting as a heat sink between the exhaust and transmission mount. One side of the break is a completely different color than the other side of the break.
