First time post on here. I have a late 2003 model 320d touring which recently failed it's MOT on several things, one of which is the particulate filter which has come loose at the join (which connects the length of pipe that runs to the cat) and is leaking emissions and soot!
My question is, does any body have any experience with this, and know whether it's possible to repair this? The filter itself SEEMS to be fine (or at least, theirs no warning light showing...) so I'm extremely loath to have buy a whole new filter before checking to see if any one might know of a way of repairing the join to the pipe.
The particular part that's fitted to my car is this RealOEM.com - Online BMW Parts Catalog
Any help would be HUGELY appreciated Cheers!
