They will no longer even consider handling or assisting with the cost under warranty like they seem to have been doing in the past.

So, I am getting ready to replace on my own and save the parts for possible attempts to get reimbursed later. If it would help getting readings on a 2012 JSW once the new parts are in place let me know.
PM I sent has contact info.

I would be interested in a few vcds readings while the errors are in place.

auto scan would be good, as would engine basic settings 78.

If so, wondering how long it took for running with a cracked(and in your case, cleaned) DPF.

thanks
Yes, Chill put a new EGR in about 5k miles before the DPF reported itself full. I don't think miles were all that was required. I forget, but either soot, or ash value will clear in small, even increments if you have Vag-Com monitoring on while driving. Whether a function of miles, or time, you can predict how long before ash (I think was ash) has cleared (it wasn't much >100mi). The >45gr soot value was another matter, that required the correct key strokes within VagCom.

Interesting. Good luck w/VW, in the future. Some considerations:
-www.dpfregeneration.com costs $400, for a cleaning. Receipt showed over 1kg lighter exhaust assembly , when I got it back
-For 2009 only, which I have, the LNT and the DPF are one part. $2,900 is about the best I found (an amazing profit center, knowing VW's Lean Nox Trap is useless).
-I have faith in the cleaning, but no miles as I haven't had time to fix the stuck turbo vanes, and have been in limp mode ever since.
-Mine was not cracked.

FWIW, I remain undecided about what to do over the diesel mess. Part of me wants to see them pay for the recall, but the bigger circus they've made of themselves, and their customers, has put my sympathy below zero.

Nice to see an '09 with that many miles. Just a tad over 174K on mine.

Yah, next few weeks is a delete, curious to see if it makes any difference. I guess I'm well over the ash limit? Ha.
