We can fix the problem, you will be advised of the cost before we proceed with any repairs that may be necessary.
Reset any error codes using the same procedures that the main dealers use.

You are probably wanting to know how much it costs….
To clean the DPF on most vehicles costs £150.00 + VAT, this includes resetting the soot level calculation in the ecu if necessary, any repairs needed before we can clean the DPF will be advised once the initial diagnosis is performed. Costs may increase if a differential pressure sensor if needed but this addition will be advised before any work is carried out.
The cause of the failure of the DPF to not function correctly and self-clean will be advised and the cost of repair will be made clear to you before proceeding with the repair or cleaning of the dpf, so you will normally have a cost of one hours labour before deciding to proceed further. Diagnosing problems that have caused the DPF to become blocked is a chargeable service at £35.00 per hour, we can normally diagnose most problems within an hour, any problems advised MUST be rectified BEFORE we will clean the DPF. This will prevent the DPF blocking again.
We can also offer advice and specialist products that can reduce the build up of soot in the first place, just ask when you bring your vehicle in for further information.
We can usually offer DPF Cleaning as a same-day service, any further remedial work that is required will obviously take longer and is subject to parts availability but can be discussed at the time.
