If you blink your eyes & don’t see the “Cleaning Exhaust Filter” notice on the driver information screen, just look at your fuel economy screen. If the present fuel mileage is lower than the recent average then you are going through a regeneration. No big deal.
If you want to get through the regeneration a little quicker just downshift by locking out 6th gear & keep your engine speed up around at least 2,000 RPM. I heard this tip somewhere on this site a few years ago & it seems to work for me. I’ve never seen a notice that a regeneration was complete, but just watching when the present fuel mileage goes back up near the present average will tell you that the regeneration is complete.
