Diesel particle filter
ok so after getting car back think the calliper wasnt just the issue, been reading abit of on-line stuff and found some information about it the DPF.

Now after so many miles some light should come on the dash to show you the car is going through a regen.
Now I have done over 20,000 miles since having my car and I have never seen this light on.

Should I be asking vauxhall why??

Does this DPF ever need changing?

No, its ok. Light only appears when you turn off The car while regen more than 35 times

If the light stays off then the car is working fine. The light only comes on if the cars dpf is something like 75% full Or hasn't been able to do a full regen cycle. If it does come on a good run at 2,000+rpm should trigger the dpf regen then the light should turn off
I know Vauxhall disabled the DPF light as too many people where going in with full DPFs.
