Hi all


I'm new to the group, I have a 2007 2.0 tdci, 140hp, been an absolutely fantastic car and ultra reliable up until now. It's needed consumables (brakes, new clutch/DMF etc) but no "faults" or break downs as such.


I've had the car for 3 years...bought it on 57K miles and it's now on 125k...still on the original DPF, it's mainly used to get me to work on Monday mornings and then back home again on Friday afternoon (I work away and it's a 230 mile round trip)


Unfortunately the inevitable time has come...it's thrown up the dreaded EML light and is showing P2002 - a DPF fault code. Car still runs and drives fine (for the moment) but I need it sorted asap as need it for work, to get home to the kids etc at weekends. The car is my lifeline :)


Can anyone recommend a decent place to take it to get the DPF deleted? I have someone who can open it up and gut it first if needed, although I'd rather take it somewhere that can do the removal and delete at the same time. Somewhere close to Stevenage or Lowestoft would be perfect but I'm willing to travel anywhere for the right company


And I know the risks, that it's an MOT failure etc (but that's only if you're caught!  :biggrin:)


Thanks in advance!

Think the latest MOT rules check to see if the DPF has been tampered with.


Any signs of welding or signs of the internals having been removed is a fail.


If you do it make sure it looks factory fresh.

I have a similar car - you might want to look at my post; the delete might not necessarily mean a MOT pass.


Will the smoke value not just increase without the DPF, at MOT testing ?

P2002 is likely the pressure pipes between DPF and pressure sensor - check these are intact and not fallen apart before you go any further.
