to remove the dpf on this model, all you should have to remove is the underbody protective plate, the reinforcement plate, and the exhaust system

 

then if you release the screw on the turbo flange and the catalytic converter suspension bolts and mounting screws, that should be all

 

you do not need to touch the transmission or steering

That is all that needs to come off to remove it. It must be a matter of finding the correct angle to get it out.
