    Default remove dpf for clean

    im gona remove my dpf on weekend to give it a good jetwash (few reasons) would it be better to take car for a quick spin to warm up exhaust to make the nuts easier to undo ,without burning yourself and when putting it back on would i need to use some sort of exhaust gasket paste cheers

    I would do it cold an spray with release fluid beforehand. Use direct heat on those nuts that do not come off and then replace fasteners.
    If all else fails nothing beats an angle grinder with cutting disc!
    I would be interested to no how you get on with the DPF clean!
    How long has exhaust been on?

    All my older mechanic mates swear by it. Won't touch anything else. Not sure what is different about it to other release fluids, but it works.
