Hi All,I am the proud owner of a new (to me)04 2.0 Zetec TDCi which I am really happy with!I have a couple of questions for you guys which I hope that you can help me with. I have had a trawl of the forums to answer some of the other questions I had, and this is what is left:<ul>[*]Do I have a DPF? How do I check (VIN or looking under the car)?[*]I have a remote key and a mechanical key. A couple of times that I have used the mechanical key, the alarm has gone off, which goes away when I put key in ignition and turn. Is this right?[*]Best place in the south-west to get me a new remote keyfob?[*]I used to bung any old diesel additive into my 160K mile Pug HDi. Should I be putting anything special into the TDCi (looking to keep injectors clean)?[*]Cambelt. What is the recommended mileage / age for replacement? I read in the manual 150K miles/10yrs, but may have been reading the wrong part.[*]I hear tales of woe about bonnet catches giving up. Is this potentially applicable to my car? What should I lookout for?

Many thanks,Kevin.

As to DPF never fully got a definite answer. The emissions code letter at the bottom left of the VIN plate is the starting place though
As to the alarm I think that appears to be correct from what others have said
New Remote key ~ try putting "auto locksmith" (with the quotes) into Google and then check
As to additive ~ Millers does seem to be the one of choice and I think does seem to add something even if only slightly
The 150K / 10yrs
Bonnet catch is I think the same for all model so may

54 Plate 1.6 TDCI LX ~aspiring to be something else
