CAT’s Inside Line: RMI

by

The RMI’s Technical Helpdesk see the following issues with the 308:

Diesel with particle filter system, a good add on to a service is to check the additive tank quantity. This is often missed and left until the warning light comes on, this is a good “add on” to a service. (RMI Technical subscribers can request the correct procedure for this operation from the helpline).

  • Another good extra is to advise customers with the 1.6 Hdi to have an extra oil and filter change between services to reduce the possibility of premature turbo failure that is quite common on these engines.
  • Check the rear brake pads for sticking when hot causing noise, there is a modified pad kit available.
  • Road test and check for knocking/metallic noise from front suspension, modified front hub available.
  • Visual check inside the fuse/relay boxes for water ingress, quite common on these models.
