    Yeah Iíve got the Haynes manual and I think it just tells you how to remove it, says nothing about coding to the ECU but everybody on here says you have to do that.

    The front part of the rubber hose is split, I have a used pipe assembly to repair that.

    But it appears that even if the sensor is gone and that was the problem initially Iím going to need a forced regen and potentially a relearning of the sensor at the very least.

    Right I managed to grab a look at our today, it's definitely only got one hose on sensor.
    I've taken some pictures.

    Yeah, that’s the one. Think they might’ve changed this to the two hose sensor as early as 2010.

    Good pictures Alex, the air is escaping from mine under the sensor in front of the front of the hose, not clear yet whether it is the neck of the hose or the sensor itself that’s gone. Hopefully get it off at the weekend for a look.

    Have you removed the sensor and tried putting a little pressure in it to see if it leaks?
    Mines seems to have a spring clamp on that hose does yours?
    I'm sure those cheap op com readers can force regen just an option if you're being quoted 99 for one.
    I'm sure they are around 20-30 quid

    Donít really have any kit to try putting pressure into it mate.

    Not sure what opcom tools could do that as well as reset the sensor when I get one.

    The clamps on mine are all single ear clamps. One time use but really cheap to buy. The 2nd hand hose (The longer front section that blew) I bought has a spring clamp on it which makes me think it was maybe replaced on the car it came from.

    Got a cheap used sensor coming from eBay, under £13 so itís a throw away piece if it blows under pressure but at least if it works I might be able to get a regen done.

    I was thinking of a pump and DIY fitting like using an adapter for blowing up paddling pools for testing pressure, as you'll hear any hissing if it cracked or split.
    Yeah mines has spring clamps those ear clamps are a pain without the tool to put back on.
    I'm sure most of the op com can do regens, I've just bought 1 so as soon as it arrives I will test and feedback to you how it went, paid 25 knicker for it so here's hoping.

    Not to sure if ours has been replaced before and ours is sitting on 150k so could have been done prior to our ownership.

    Pmsl I could of swore it had spring clamps it's not it's ear clamps
    Just zoomed in on my photo there's one right next to it with spring clamp, don't think my head is truly working.
    My other car has consumed my brain

    Yeah, good shout. Iíve got one of those compressors for tyres that you plug into the car. Will have a think about testing with that if thereís no clear damage when I take the sensor off.

    Interested to hear how you get on with that Opcom, and if it can zero in on sensors etc to reset the DPF one or not.

    Cheers for your help and advice.

    Ha, Never even thought to look at the photos, can get them cheap enough on eBay, going to order some now.

    £11 used hose, £13 used sensor, £4 for more clamps than I need in case I balls any up. At least if they blow again Iíve not broke the bank as well 😂
