mnl said:If it is anything like the Citroens, they stand the car on concrete, connect the service pod thingie to the diagnostic socket, activate regeneration, and go and have lunch.
The engine then revs to the governor and stays there until the DPF gets hot enough to burn away the crud.
This costs £300, but they don't actually do anything.
They have to stand it on concrete, as the exhaust gets so hot that it will melt tarmac
You can do the same thing with a long thrash along the motorway.

Thanks for the help
