    Does anyone know where the engine number is located?

    Thanks so from the sounds of it
    "Don't quote me, but I think I remember where it is. I would go to the gearbox end of the block, and look just above the bellhousing (just under the head) on the front bank. I guess there will be a few things in the way, including water pipes and possibly the front turbo cold air inlet pipe. But like I said, please don't hold me to it!"

    I will have a look later to see if I can find it as I got a blue slip but it has a comment that they could not find the engine number and it needs to be checked.

    Dont stress Emanuel, I got the same thing when I had my road worthy done. The easiest thing to do is to remove the air intake and shine a torch down on the block then spray a shit load of WD40 down there so that the surface becomes reflective. One thing to watch is that the number is split across two lines. One above the other, sorta like this:


    12345
    678910


    Hope it helps mate.

    Could someone put up a diagram/pic of the engine with an arrow pointing where we should look. Maybe a caps diagram of the block or something.

    OK all you need to remove is the front air duct going to the airbox, and a can of WD40 is a must. You really do need to spray lots of WD40, it just seems to bring the number out.

    You need a good strong torch, the smaller the better.

    The first row of the engine number is the same as on the plate. "6A13" then there is another line under that. Mine had 2 letters then 4 numbers.

    If you have your cheak resting on the radiator pipe, that is a good view.

    Thats probably a really good place to post it , I know lots of people will need it.

    Trying to take a good photo of the engine number with only the front air duct off. Very hard, anyone else want to give it a go?

    in that third photo of yours, it shows some more numbers/letters above the top hose.

    on yours it looks like it says D1, whereas mine says D2.

    anyone know what these refer to?

    Mine has 2.5 then D1 on the side of the front head above the engine number which is on the block.

    What does everyone else have? Mine is a 1999 model.

    it's concerning that you use your time to post, rather than wiping your ass...

    Sooooooo...

    No chance I can see in there. Any more tips or can it be done with everything in the way?

    EDIT: All good! have to wait for the WD40 to dry before you can make anything out.
