Regarding the smoking on first start up,,, mine did this from the day I bought it, and I just put it down to it being a diesel. The smoke was a blue/gray colour. Eventually I had the engine light come on for what I thought was an unrelated problem, it was showing glow plugs. I replaced these and it solved the engine light problem AND it hasn't smoked on start up ever since. So this might be a good place to start, as the parts are relatively cheap. Hope you get it sorted, regards, Mike.

Welcome to the forum Simon. it maybe left over residue that is being burnt off? As Mike says, try the glowplugs to see if it makes a difference?

thanks guys im sure they was changed in the sevise book it say they changed the spark plugs 2008 and 2011 but im guessing they mean glowplugs as the book does not have them listed to tick off will give it time to see how it goes was hoping it was a case of it having old oil in the exhaust that it needed to burn off after the turbo poped. have aslo put some millers diesel treatment in it so will give it 200miles to work its wounder and see if it helps as its really good stuff.

any one no about the door problem ?

You didn't describe the door problem very well, I'm struggling to understand what your actual problem is ??? Members will need as much info as possible to try and assist you :-)
