    Anyone had any problems recently as the posts seem to have died down on this issue? So its either been sorted or people just aren't posting about it.

    Personally have never seen the light on and think only one occassion a few thousand miles ago heard what I thought might have been the DPF regenerating but not sure if it was to be honest! Not heard again.

    11k on the clocks FYI. Probably means now I have posted this the light will come on when I drive home from work :laugh:

    I've only had the light come on a couple of times but that was because of a loads of short journeys which clogged it up. A quick thrash up the m/way soon sorted it out. Hasn't happened for months now. So never had any major problems!
