3.0 V6 2006 Touareq Glow Light and Exhaust Worskhop Light

I got a 2006 3.0 V6 Touareq with the glow plug light flashing and saying exhaust workshop also its in limp mode. I did check it with a OBD2 scanner and it gave me the code P2002 Trap Efficiency Below Threshold Bank 1, so I looked it up and said it can be a bad DPF Sensor or the DPF itself. I changed the sensor and erased the codes but its coming back, also the dpf light is not on. Can someone please tell me what to do please.

You need to use VCDS for a full scan.
Don't know where you are but a number of members on here have VCDS and offer their help to others.
Join the UK site [this one is much more US focussed] and post your problem there.

Your car may need a forced regen, or you can get the DPF cleaned, or you can remap and remove the DPF [legally you shouldn't], or you can suck it up and fit a new DPF.
