Engine light was found to be 90% blockage of DPF, forced regen only got it down to 70.
Am I looking at a new dpf?

There is a cleaning process called the Ceramex process.

It seems to cost a few hundred quid, probably cheaper than a new DPF.

Look on Honest John's website, there is some info there.

Hope this helps

Seems like you take your car into a garage and they remove the dpf and send it away to be cleaned.
