I havent heard much of a review, but these products claim to help clean it and in fairness some probably will, but I havent heard any one say "brand X works perfectly" and certainly not "it worked better than replacing the filter"...

Sometimes if you look up the underside of the car, next to the fuel tank you can see a reservoir, if its clear you may see the amount of liquid in there, however most likely you wont be able to see how much is there, and sometimes you may not see this tank at all.

 

You would need to have the dealer review this and they would do this for you.

Eolys fluid is horrible rotten expensive stuff.
Tbh you're best off getting a garage to do the job.

If you search the net for DPF removal in your country you may find something, otherwise, you could try and track down the DPF filter, and then drill through the DPF and refit the shield?

Its not something I have personally done myself, so I cant really offer much help. Hopefully the exhaust specialists will be able to help you.

Well you can manufacture yourself one from a stainless steel plate, but you can buy them cheap enough online, its just a case of finding someone who will ship to your location!
