Hi there thanks and sorry for the delayed response

Ok the fault code you have indicates a blocked DPF assembly

The cause of the DPF becoming blocked is numerous failed regenerations

This is commonly caused by a faulty fuel vapouriser assembly

You will not be able to clear the fault code until the DPF is clear

I would advise replacing the fuel vapouriser and carrying out a static regeneration of the DPF

In order to resolve your issue
