Had my Auris in for forced regen in Toyota garage as the engine light came on, problem is,  its now back on and they are recommending a new DPF. Anyone use these dpf cleaning companies or done it themselves. I can get the aerosol can cleaner but not sure where you spray it in and do you need specialist tools to take off sensor where you spray it in.

The garage does not fix, they just replace parts...

You need to take the sensor off to be cleaned, i saw people even using pressure washers to clean them, depending on the state.

Not a hard job, i would start with some cleaner and do it myself. If the light comes back on, maybe ask some garage if it's worth paying to get profesionally cleaned, or replaced.

Hi Liam and welcome to TOC.   If you go along to You Tube and search for DPF cleaning 1.4 diesel Toyota Auris 2015, May help you do the job.

Thanks Been here for years but not been on much. Have seen YouTube videos but more professional cleaning I’m like oking the aerosol can cleaner instructions. Just wondering where to actually put it in.

In case no one replies, usually there is some sensor on top part of the filter, which you can unscrew, and blast the can content in.

I hope the can has a flexible hose so it can be moved around.

Hopefully someone will give more detailed explanation, or try using search for similar topics.

There was a couple or more videos showing the use of a can spray with a flexi tube.  There was a good one of a Peugeot DPF that could be took apart and given a really good soaking of the filter then a good blast. That would be a more effective clean that just a can of spray. Don’t know if your filter can be slit into pieces.

As I own an 2.2L diesel and had this problem before I suggest going to someone and have the DPF cleaned because it is most likely that it has more life ahead of it and it is much cheaper than replacing the whole unit
