    DPF blocked, check your handbook
    Sometimes a drive at highish revs will clear the filter and the light will go off

    if it won't clear you'll have to take to a dealer.
    Might be worth scanning for faults if it won't clear.

    Isnt it about 30 - 40 quid for the dealer to scan or check out the VCDS map on the forum as you may have a forum member with VCDS who will help you out.

    I think to activate the cleaning cycle you have to drive at over 50 for 15 minutes, if I remember correctly.
    Someone on here was quoted £1500 from Audi when there's was blocked and needed replacing.

    here is a option on VCDS to do a clean cycle on the DPF.

    Best thing for now is to get it up to temp, go for a nice long drive at highish revs to someones house with VCDS.
    That should do it.

    I read somewhere that you have a couple of days to do the long drive, to clean/regen the filter before it is a trip to the stealers to get them to look at it.
    A4 B5 Double Din, RNS-d, TMC, Full Sports Leather Heated with Leather Door Cards and Lower Door trims all for sale.
