Check engine light is on for dpf filter, tried to get it to Regen and it won't. I kept the rpm's between 2400 - 2900 going highways speeds for approx. 25 miles and no luck. If I can't get it to Regen, is there any cleaners y'all have had positive experience with I could look into as a back up plan?
Thanks in advance everyone

Cleaners and such don't work for these. Replacement is usually the correct fix. Get a scan done with a VW compatible scanner and post the results here. Might be something else causing it that can be fixed.

It won’t regenerate while the check engine light is on. Check your exhaust pipes for soot. If there is soot your DPF is cracked and needs replaced.
