99% of the time a DPF filter that has become overloaded or blocked is just the symptom.

 

Its is not the cause.

 

With specialist cleaning & fluids, most DPF filters can be recovered on the vehicle.

 

There will always be extreme cases where cleaning on the car is not going to work.

 

But the important bit is find out why the filter has become blocked.

 

Cleaning or replacing  the DPF is not finding the true cause. It will be a very short-term fix and the car  will be back again with the DPF filter overloaded again soon.
