300 TDi engine number position


Recommended Posts

I have heard from a few people that the engine number on a 300 TDi is rather difficult to locate. With my engine stripped, cleaned and re-sprayed, I thought that this is now a good opportunity to see the number

The only number I can find (cast into the block) is on the FIP side, near the rear, and about half-way between sump and head. And that number bears no resemblance to the engine number indicated in the car's documentation.


So, where does one find the engine number on a 300TDi ?

RHS at the base of the breather pipe that goes from rocker cover to the engine block, on the face that points skywards. It'll probably be covered in oily crud.

Got it, thanks ds
