Default Cleaning DPF, got it done today

Im looking at cleaning out my DPF as getting even more soot building up on the outside of the Turbo. Car is running fine but MPG has dropped a bit.
Car is 1.6HDI, am I correct in thinking that my Cat/DPF is in 2 parts and very simple to split.
I have had Elios fluid refiled adout a year ago.
Im getting DPF system fault code 0238 -turbo boost sensor A circuit high at the moment on occasions, as well as a few others.

There are posts on here detailing the 1.6 builds up soot on the outside of the turbo, but I don't think this is related to a choking DPF.

asume the 2 sensors are pressure moniters to tell the ECU how bocked the filter is, on the front there is a stainles pipe going in to DPF that comes from a switch/valve on the rad, is this for the DPF fluid.

What is that used for?

What do I do, just blow with air line, or take it off the pipe and blow it through?

Mine was off a few months ago when the clutch and DMF were replaced so all bolts should be ok, or do you mean they are a pain in the arse to remove from the car or to split Cat/DPF?
