Know what you mean by fun.
Not a big fan of being under these heavy rigs.
My plan is to run the passenger side wheels up on leveling blocks, chuck the driver side wheels, get out the redneck creeper (cardboard) and scoot under there (with eye protection of course).
Then loosen the big clamp, slide it back and remove the bracket.
I don't anticipate much movement in the exhaust system.
If necessary I'll use a floor jack as a temporary support and persuader.
As far as when to replace?
I've learned the hard way with VWs that if there is an updated part, replace it now instead of along the road side, then carry the inferior part as the spare.

To find the DPF bracket follow the exhaust pipe forward to just behind the front wheel.
You'll see a section of flex exhaust pipe (looks like a large Chinese finger trap). Just after that the exhaust pipe doubles in size. That's the DPF and the bracket is between that and the flex pipe.
Takes good lighting to see cracking. Ours has started on both sides of a bent plate, not all the way across yet.

Check hoses and clamps on the turbo charger and resonator. We had the same and it was just 2 turns of a not driver on the resonator hose clamp.
