Hi All. I'm having problems removing the DPF from my wife's '15 TDI. I have the DPF loose from the engine and separated from the EGR "block". Coolant lines have been removed from the EGR but there is not enough side to side movement to get the ERG out of the DPF. Any insight would be greatly appreciated. Does the engine needed to be removed? (Hope not). If engine is removed is it a pull or a drop. Thanks for looking.

Have you gone out to erWin.vw to get the recommended removal procedure? These are available online and for a reasonable fee - like $35. You can download the procedures...
