    OK so as promised I said I would update this thread. I went to another Ford dealer, this one closer to work to get the 'Engine Systems Failure' warning cleared. I got charged a sum of £82, to clear the codes. Which ain't bad considering I was quoted £1500, and all in I paid just under £600 using independent garage and fraud dealer to clear code. However I did manage to blag the screen prints the receptionist was looking at, so thought it may be helpful to someone in the future. See the three attachments. Once again great thread and thanks for all the comments. Now there's just the judder, stutter at low revs to sort out, but from what I hear it's likely to be soot build up in the EGR.

    No i did not as the red warning light is also on. From memory it states clearly not to bother trying if the light is on. Feel free to correct me if I'm talking bullocks (mispelt intentionally)

    !Removed! hell it's kicked off. :P I have since disconnected the battery overnight to no avail. It looks like I will have to go to the dealer with it. Thanks Catch your posts have been invaluable. I will post any findings. Thanks everyone. :)

    Break down of costs. Catalyst & DPF (aftermarket, one unit) £395.48 (Incl VAT) Fuel Additive (Not a complete fill up) (Incl VAT) £132 Labour 3hrs Incl VAT) £108.00 Why do we pay VAT on Labour, is another rant altogether. TOTAL £503.48 Morale of the story is don't use a Ford dealer ship unless you really have to. However I still have the 'Engine Systems Fault light' on my dashboard display, with no warnings behind it, any ideas?
