Default Particle filter

Hi guys.
I'm getting a message which say "particle filter fluid too low"
Ive had it into a garage and they have said it is going to cost me 250 for this fluid.
Are they trying to rip me off?
What is this fluid?
I have a 407 2ltr hdi on a 55 plate.

You could do it yourself fairly easy job then get someone with planet to reset counters should cost around 100 give or take a few quid.
PAT fluid is what your after I got 4.5ltrs for about 80/90 from eurocarparts.

The worning only comes up when I start the car and goes off again and then I get a picture of what looks like the exhaust between the clocks.

It only started a few days ago but ive booked it in now. Its a taxi so dont want to leave it as such if you know what I mean.

I think il let the garage do it, I would probably cock it right up and but it in the fuel cap lol.
Only had it 15 months and so far it's cost me 2 front hubs, a clutch, a starter motor, countless rear bulbs and a battery.
Still not ready to change it though as it's one hell of a comfy car. Its done 92000 so will be getting the cam belt done soon.

Pull of the connectors on rear lights and look for discolored or burnt pins , could be the reason for it eating bulbs

Thanks for the link, It was very informative. Having read through it, would anyone recommend me not taking it into the garage and waiting for a couple of weeks bearing in mind that its a taxi and doing roughly 150 miles a day.

Why a couple of weeks ?

Shouldn`t do much harm in that period but don`t come looking for me

Yeah, the 150 difference between doing it yourself and the garage doing it!
