Hi can any one tell me which pipe is the filler pipe and which 1 is the overflow pipe on the DPF additve tank on a focus 08 as it is not that clear in the Haynes manual,

so I looked it up on net and it say the long pipe is the filler and short 1 the overflow  but in the manual the pic looks like the short pipe is the filler so before i start i would like to know for sure.

I've just been quoted around £100 quid for this, which I think is reasonable. How did you reset the ECU counter?

Hi I reset the ECU counter by the fuel filler cap as in the Haynes manual  but you can only use it if MIL OR PCL light is not on saying empty or low fluid. It did take me 3 goes to get it to reset in all about 30 mins to do it all. 

I think it is on here how to do it.

Yeah I've read about that but never quite believed it. Wasn't aware it was in the Haynes manual though! Did you get acknowledgement it was done then? All this is just out of interest btw, I'm still probably gonna let the garage do it!
