I had a stinking smell following a Regen and it was diagnosed as carbon debris had escaped from DPF through a faulty clamp and stuck on the heat shield.

Mine has been leaking on and off for several years, it is going in next week for either 5th or 6th attempt to repair. I have reported to DVSA, but they came back and said that LR said the level of fumes isn't enough to kill you and so if LR say that, then it is OK......... No recall needed. :x

I now don't want the car, and am looking to see if LR will do me a really really good deal on getting rid, or it will be the Small Claims court route to recover my losses.
