My dpf engine management light has come on again and seems to be coming on now every month. I don’t do massive mileage but all the same it’s becoming a right pain.
Been to my garage a few times to clean it out and reset it because every time I’ve tried I just can’t regen it by driving it over a long period or at high revs over a long period... tried both methods.
The garage did change the dpf sensor saying it needed changing for when it regens but that hasn’t helped.
I’m debating whether I need to just go the whole hog and replace the dpf filter itself but not sure....
My car is a 09 and on 87k mileage.
Seen a dpf new filter for £179 on eBay although not sure it’s the right one.
Would appreciate any advice please guys my head is done right in....

pour the whole bottle in when you fill up, then at your next fill up and use at every fill up use 6900d max
i have been putting this into my mk3 2.0tdci since i got the car in 2015 with only 3000 miles i am now onto 26000 do very short stop start driving
you could always get a bluetooth obd and download forscan to do a forced regen, also you will be able to see the dpf load
another thing i am not sure if yours has an eloys tank that should be refilled this would be located under the car near the rear subframe

Does anyone know with a mk2 what the cost is of replacing the dpf filter or even if I can just have it removed?

Spoke to garage today and he quoted me about £450 to fit a new dpf filter
Been speaking to someone on eBay who sells a lead for about £15 that connects to the obd and then to your laptop. You then go on that forscan thing you mentioned and do a forced regen.... there’s a you tube video showing it which seems quite straight forward.
Very tempted to go down that route now... I guess if the dpf filter is on its way out and needs to be forced regen every month... it will be quite easy (and cheaper!) to just plug that lead in and let it do a forced one each time.
How does that sound guys?
I’ll get some of that fluid though, so cheers for thaf

Linked up the obd lead and used forscan.
It does to do the forced regen and at 11% it stops and says
"service procedure has been interrupted"
Any ideas guys?
I really can't stand driving in limp mode for much longer
