Thanks for video link.

Quick check just now, following 2 x 40 minute drives....mix 70/50mph + urban....soot dropped to 41%!!
I'm going to swap it out anyway.
Merry Xmas all, and tks again for all your help.

Soaked it in penetrating fluid.
Breaker bar shifted it easily...bit of a non-event really.
Vapouriser hole really sooted up...only letting tiniest amount of air through. (diesel doesn't taste nice!!)
Glow was 1.1ohms,so good.
Applied dab Mintex Ceratec on re-assembly.
Probably won't bother force regen..just let it do its thing.
What a relief, as was all prepared with blow torch/extinguisher/garden hose and candle wax....latter in case penetrating fluid didn't work.
(you may think fire extinguisher a bit OTT, but changed track rod end on wife's car last summer.Lots of penetrating fluid on thread, mopped up lots of excess with blue roll.Lock nut needed some heat, you know the rest...nice inferno under engine!!!)
Hopefully anyone reading this will be as lucky as me.
Again, really grateful for all of your invaluable information/advice.

That looks worse than the one that came out of my car, but mine was blocked solid, couldn't blow through it at all.

That’s good news Steve....My 2.2 gets mainly short town runs (especially since lockdown)....I have been using “wynns total system” treatment roughly twice a year & don’t want to scud myself but so far “fingers crossed “....Our lockdown will continue to Easter(That I’m assured) & possibly further....With mot in April I will just have to Hope & Pray As You cannot travel further than 10 miles from home...Heavy fines imposed for breaking....They are really strict here but I suppose it’s best safe than Sorry...As a footnote...Anybody relatively healthy getting 1st Astra Zeneca....Have a back up plan/time off work booked as it WILL knock your pan out for few days...Best Regards

Just did static regen, as wanted peace of mind that pump was primed OK.
Sat at 2800 for approx 25 mins, and end result was:-
"(OK) [17:44:10.100] Regeneration started. Please wait...25 min

Interesting, I have the same issue with mine.
Changed the vaporiser with a genuine one from Ford, did static regen and same error: Regeneration time exceeded allowable limit
During driving when it's doing regen the temperature gets only to 550-570C and as I heard it should be over 600
