First check your exhaust for leaks or damage..

Looks to me like the crankcase vent hose to the air intake has split or come off.
That would explain the white smoke too, as air would be entering the engine that the MAF sensor hasn't 'seen'.
Lean running results - white smoke.

For goodness' sake don't let them tell you its injectors or something expensive!!
Its a few quid for the hose and a five minute task.

I concur.
When I bought the car there was a humming form the back and road noise from the front..
Replaced the horrid PirelliP600 when they wore out with 4 budget tyres and - silence is golden.

In Topic: Rough Idle On A 2004 2.0 Tdci

this weekend I changed my crank pulley, aux belt and tensioner and it has improved my chugging a lot.
Not that there were any symptoms like drumming, clattering or flapping, simply that 100,000 miles seems as good a time as any to do it.
Chugging still there but far less pronounced - perhaps the ECU needs time to 'settle' into the change, time will tell.

The positive code here is the MAF sensor fault P0100. It's the only one that has a singular cause, a failed MAF signal.

Firstly, check the wiring. and check the connector for broken wires and bent pins.
(I have also read reports of wiring being displaced and chaffed by the auxiliary belt (LHS as you look at the engine))

Then do a google and find how to remove and clean the MAF sensor. More often than not its just dirty.

If that fails, replace it.

If it is the MAF alone that's faulty, the glowplug light will disappear and the secondary codes will clear themselves when the ECU completes its monitoring cycle for those events.

Good luck
