Hello, first post.

I'm pretty sure I have a DPF because I'm getting the antipollution/service light warning but would someone be able to check? I've read here that the 1.6 doesn't have a DPF though, perhaps the 16v doesn't and the 8v does?

VIN VF7SH9HP0AT582215

If I do have a DPF and I've got the antipollution warning would a can of JLM cleaner work or is it too late?

Many thanks for any help

Hi

Yours is a 92PS engine that doesn't have a FAP/DPF from the VIN.

You need to connect lexia/diagbox or possibly an OBD2 to find the code that has brought up that message.


I don't think JLM will help here because there is no DPF listed, but adding a can of Regen Plus won't do any harm.
