You can clear these if less than 60% blocked by giving the car a good blast on the motorway going through the revs. If your car is on limp mode you do need to replace the particulate filter as the blockage is too much to regenerate. I have found a company that does these very cheap and are technicly brilliant i had many questions and they seemed to answer correctly with confidence. They supplied the part to me for £500, i have checked from this for the automotive solutions guys that did it for £450 but couldnt find them which is why i went with these. The company is Onlineautomotive.co.uk and i spoke to someone Called Darrell. There number is anyone wants it is 0844 880 4149 he did giv me a direct number but im sure he wouldnt want me to list that on here as its his work mobile.

Check if your Volvo C30/S40/V50/C70 has DPF (diesel particulate filter) / FAP (filtre ? particules) installed. Volvo is using this filter in cars with diesel engines like 1.6D, 2.0D, D2, D3, D4, D5 to reduce emission and meet Euro emission standards.
There are three ways to check your Volvo for DPF: by VIN number, with hidden menu and by checking ADM module under the hood. Volvo DPF check diesel particle filter mr fix info
P2002 - Diesel Particulate Filter Efficiency Below Threshold (Bank 1)
Description: The powertrain control module(PCM) monitors the efficiency of the diesel particulate filter for a concern. The efficiency of the filter is determined by the amount of restriction in the filter for a certain exhaust flow rate. The diesel particulate filter is preconditioned for 5,000 km (3,107 miles) before the PCM begins to monitor the level of restriction. The test fails when the measured level of restriction is less than the expected level calculated by the PCM. Possible Causes:
Dirty air cleaner element
Recent manual or thorough diesel particulate filter regeneration
Aftermarket accessories and performance modifications
Exhaust leaks before or near the diesel particulate filter pressure sensor
Leaks in the diesel particulate filter pressure sensor connecting hose
Damaged diesel particulate filter
Diagnostic Aids: Check for leaks in the exhaust system. Check for aftermarket exhaust accessories and performance modifications that decrease the exhaust restriction. If a new diesel particulate filter was recently installed, verify the diesel particulate filter parameter reset procedure was carried out.
I don't know about the fumes but the DPF (Diesel Particulated Filter) Is located in the exhaust. The corect oil needs to be used or it can block the filter & cause drivability problems. Sometimes people are also to soft on the car. You need to give it a bit once in a while not just put around town all the time or you will face the same issues. The regeneration process is where the engine runs at high revs to attemp to burn off the soot build up. They normally use a full synthetic low ash low phosphate engine oil expensive but if that is what it needs then that is what it needs. You should check if that oil is suitable & if not have it replaced. You can check on this site. http://www.datateck.com.au/lube/valv_auMS/
I've found the following info at mazdaforum.com , which I will reproduce word for word:
If the Diesel Particulate Filter indicator illuminates continuously - Drive the vehicle at an engine speed of 2000rpm or higher and a vehicle speed of 40Km/h (25mph) or more for about 10 to 15 minutes to remove the particulate matter. The engine sound and smell may change as the particulate material is being removed.
If the Diesel Particulate Filter indicator flashes - Take your vehicle to a Mazda Authorised Repairer as soon as possible to prevent damage.
fuel filter on most Mazda cars can be located on a bracket in the left
rear of the engine compartment, next to or beneath the brake master
cylinder fluid reservoir or as part of the fuel pump assembly.
The filter on Mazda3 models is part of the fuel pump assembly.
fuel filter is part of the pump assembly. Once the fuel pump is
removed, remove the filter retainer and filter. refer to the fuel pump
procedure or removal and installation.
