I'm dealing with the same issue right now. After multiple drives at "40 mph for 20 minutes" I still cannot get the filter to clear. Now it's totally clogged and in the shop ..... awaiting the bill. Any advice?

reasking my question. just had a 65k service done at a shop that specializes in RR. I said, hey, check the exhaust filter l on my local interweb that the filter is an issue. He looked at me like i was absolutely nuts. So, asking again, what or where is the exhaust filter?

Hi, am new here so just trying to be helpful. I currently own a Velar with a 3.0l diesel but have ordered a RRS with the same engine. The issue with the diesels (not soley RRs but all new diesels) is that they have a particulates filter which forms part of the exhaust system. When the car is driven in town the diesel particulates are trapped in this filter so build-up is dependent on driving style and conditions not age. When you get the warning on the dashboard you need to travel at a constant speed of not less than 60km/h (37mph) and 112km/h (70mph) for 20 minutes minimum. Do not ignore the warning doing so may mean that the filter will get full and then cannot be cleaned in the above manner but will need replacing (an expensive mistake). Below info form land rover explaining in detail.

Hope this helps.
Ron

Drive it for about an hr on the freeway. It took me that long to get mine to clear its codes for the exhaust filter. No problems since then.
