    Where is it? What does it look like?

    All the talk of the not so mythical DPF has got me wondering what it looks like exactly and where it is located in the car?

    Can anyone help?

    DPF

    AS far as I can see from the diagrams I have, it sits directly after the turbo. After this, the exhaust pipes go under the car to the regular silencers etc. It has several temperature senders attached, plus the lamda probe, plus a connection to the exhaust gas recirculation system. So to take a look, pull off the top engine cover and look for the exhaust manifold and then the turbo. Directly after that should be the DPF box in all its glory. Good luck.

    Here is a page from the ETKA parts catalogue showing the exhaust for my A3 Sportback 2.0TDI-170 with the DPF.
