Time has come for a cam belt change. I've been looking for a guide to changing the belt (my copy of TIS throws me out when I go near the diesel engine section but that's another story) but I'm not even sure of the engine type lurking under the bonnet.

It's a 1.9 Ghia TDi registered in May 2001 but as far as I can see it could be an ANU, AVG, AFN, AHU or AUY.

Does anyone know how to decode the engine serial number, the VIN or even how I identify the engine by looking at it?

I've come from the world of Minis (the original ones) where engine identification is rather simple (it's either an A or an A+) and I'm surprised it's taken me all evening and I've yet to reach a conclusion.

Any advise will be greafully received.

not 100% accurate but pop your reg number in ECP, but pretty darn accurate!

If its an Automatic its an AUY engine.

If its a manual its either an AUY or an ANU engine.

Thanks for the quick response Jayton (and Big Kev).

ECP claim it's an AUY, so that's a start (and they have the date of registration correct so that gives me some confidance).

Don't suppose you (or anyone else) knows how to confirm visually if I have an AUY before I order a belt, pullies and maybe locking tools?

Should be written on the timing belt cover....somewhere near the Bar code.




I wouldn't take the ECP result as being correct...says mine is a 1Z.....

.its actually an AHU......close...but no cigar !

Ah ha! It's so simple when you know how.

Go out in the p*****g rain, remove the engine cover and bingo! - it's an AUY.

Next step is to find cambelt replacement instructions but I'll post another topic for that.

Many thanks,
Graham.
