Hey, I was having the same issue on my 93 not too long ago because I only do short journeys and I was told to try using a dpf cleaner. it only cost me like 6 quid and seemed to work. I think I found the one I used from the link below

short journeys is a no no with modern diesels,think the dpf as a self cleaning oven..
