How do I know if my car is fitted with a particle filter (FAP)??


I have a Renault Grand Scenic 2, 2.0l, Dci (MR9 70 engine), 7 seater, year 05/2006.
Nowhere is it written whether the vehicle is fitted with this particle filter in any of the documents. In an annex to the owners manual it states that certain 2.0l engines are fitted with the particle filter.
The particle filter affects the oil specification/grade to use in the engine. Without the FAP filter you can use 5W-40 and with the FAP fitted it is advised to use 5W-30.
Any ideas on this???

Kind regards,
