    Sorry for the poor drawing , Does anyone have a copy of what all the dash fault lights are ? Or does anyone know what this is ?
    Obviously i dont have an owners manual or else i'd check that .
    I'd guess the the answer is go to garage , just like to know whats up with the van

    Many thanks

    I need a picture of it.
    The books are cheap from MB parts, they take a couple of days to get in but are very handy.

    That could be that the DPF is full.

    Is it either of these?

    Sorry about the poor quality but the online manual is very small.

    Thats the one Cheers

    Still need to get hold of a owners manual for the van .

    Answer is :-
    Dirt accumulation in air filter

    spoke to the garage and he told me to drive it a bit harder to burn the bits off.

    Thanks all ,

    Driving it harder isn't going to burn the bits off, it doesn't get hot. It's the engine air intake filter and it needs replacing. A temporary fix might be to remove the filter and brush the dirt off it, but a clogged filter is going to affect fuel consumption and performance. I could understand what he said if it was the DPF light, as that burns the bits off during regeneration.

    Sorry , Yes after i wrote that i realised that i had got it wrong. The advice from the dealer was about a DPF snag . Which this is not.
