Clogged DPF? Compare refurbishment and cleaning prices in seconds.
After speaking to Patrick yesterday he had my van picked up straight away and diagnosed within the hour. Finding a few things wrong he quoted a fair price and was professional throughout. My van was delivered back to me today and is now running better than it ever has. Thank you Patrick, extremely pleased with the service from start to finish! Will definitely be a returning customer.
Oh my word! Patrick is amazing and a life saver. He was calm, reassuring, helpful and sincere. I was going to continue looking for the cheapest option but after one phonecall with him - I was happy to proceed with the original quote. He told me what he would do - and he did it. He kept me updated and he took into consideration payment options, my location and urgency of my need..... an all round good bloke and the garage provided a great service. Very, very happy! ;-)
Very good, will use again.

Quick and easy. Nice people who were able to help out and complete the job quickly.
The price was a lot higher than I expected but i must say this garage are very knowledgeable and very professional. They were able to properly diagnose the problem and get it fixed quickly. I’d definitely recommend them!!!!
I’ve had an incredible experience with this garage and am making this my garage for all my car issues. After having visited over three mechanic shops with regards to my DPF being clogged, I was left feeling highly disappointed each time because the mechanics gave me the wrong advice on how to clear it. With SN autohaus it was completely different. I was informed from the beginning that the filter would be removed and cleaned with a machine before being replaced and. I was also informed of the price. Not only was it done promptly, but I was Also told that the total price was what I was initially quoted. My car was returned to me in pristine condition; having been washed after being fixed. I’ve never experienced this standard of customer service before. I would highly recommend getting in touch with SN Autohaus for DPF clean because the price was reasonable and the service was incredible. I now have a car which was initially working on limp mode to now feeling like it did when I first bought it.
Very good guy knows what he's doing pleasure to have him out and will be recommended to family and friends
Very happy service from the guys, my partner took the car down there and they tried their best to do the job but the car was too far gone, they’re were very good with explaining the problems and options we had. Very good service I’ll be going back there when I need to

Diesel Particulate Filters are extremely important to have in your vehicle. The filter captures and stores exhaust soot in order to help reduce emissions coming from diesel cars.
Ever since 2009, the Euro 5 standard has been enforced, a rule which ensures all new diesel cars must have particulate filters fitted.
These pieces of equipment were introduced in an effort to reduce the particle and soot emissions from diesel engines. Diesel Particulate filters (DPF) trap soot before it blows out of an exhaust and like any filter, it requires cleaning in order to maintain performance.
Fortunately the filter itself has self-cleaning capabilities known as regeneration.
There are two types of regeneration which can be carried out on your car.
This process happens automatically while the exhaust is at a high temperature which will usually occur when you are driving down a motorway or quickly down an A-road. However, as many vehicles aren’t always being driven at high speeds, an alternative system for regeneration exists.
This method of cleaning the DFP is controlled by an engine management computer and happens automatically when the filter reaches 45% of its limit. The process is initiated by the fuel injection being increased which makes the exhaust heat up and therefore clear the filter. However, if your drive is a short one and the process tries to initiate, it will not be able to properly clear the filter, in this eventuality, the warning light in your car will come on.
A drive of about ten minutes at a speed of around 40mph should be adequate for the process to be successful.
If these issues are effecting your car it is almost certain that you will need your filter replacing which is likely to cost upwards of £1000 including diagnostic and labour time.
And if you were thinking of saving all of that time and money by removing the filter completely, think again, it’s illegal to remove the DPF.
The Department for Transport states that it is an offence to remove the filter or modify the piece of equipment in a way which would result in the vehicle failing air pollutant emission standards. Breaking the law will result in the vehicle not being road worthy so if you are ever offered to have your filter removed, make sure to keep this in mind.
Every MOT now includes a check for the DPF and a smoke test from the exhaust so there is very little chance of getting away with removing the filter.
If you need to have the filter regenerated manually, you must take your vehicle to a trained professional immediately. They will initiate a process where the exhaust is heated up to a point where regeneration happens and soot is cleared from the filter.
