Plain and simple gents. Do I need one for my 2.0l or is it down to insurance wanting one or not?

There is info on dvla website about how to declare an engine change because you need to declare it with the dvla and insurance.

All I did was change my V5 to the new capacity and engine number and changed insurer to Adrian Flux.

Simples :)

Not really

Just told them I had put a mondeo 2.0 in, they asked for the engine number and bobs your uncle.
Think they might have asked me if I did the change myself but nothing more than that. Defo no request for reports!!

iirc its usually on flat exposed bit of metal near the gearbox

as for the report, when i was with flux they did as for one, but i told them i fitted it sgned my forms and sent them back, nothing more was said!

2.0 mk2 was the same, nothing was said or asked about the conversion :thumbsup:

Yeah, its stamped on the flat next to where the gearbox mounts on the front.

Take a note of it now while the engine is out/accesible as once its all plumbed in its a pain in the arse to read, trust me ;)

Take a picture with your phone if you are struggling to see it, the flash will light it up so you don't have to struggle

You can still see it, its just a pain :)

If its like my 2.0 and stamped with little dots rather than full lettering then I hope you gave that area a good clean as its a bitch to read properly even when on the stand.

My 1.6 has it nicely stamped with full letters and is a breeze to read. You'll see what I mean if you have the dots ;)
