    Default Where is the engine number ? X7 2.0 HDi RHR

    Blue slip time as Title states?
    Mechanics notes state it is found at the 'font' of the block..
    However, I can find even with a torch and wearing glasses.

    Am doing so in order to curry favour and support.
    I want to pre-locate the Engine Number.
    To help to make his life easier, hoping that he will in turn
    will be so inclined towards mine.

    RHH has it stamped on the very bottom of the cast iron, at the front, hard to see. Easy way - put the VIN into service.citroen.

    Just to the right of the oil filter when looking at the front of the engine.

    It's best seen with a mirror and a good light source!

    Also, because the block is not painted it will no doubt have a coat of rust over it.

    I managed to get my hand in there and clean the surface with some abrasive paper.
    The number is stamped into the metal so it will not rub off.

    No, it has gone dark in recent times. Part of the anal retentiveness of manufacturers. Even the handbooks are now hidden here.

    You will have to register as a tradesman in one of the categories.

    Oh yes, Jaahn had mentioned about such,
    at that time I did not fully appreciate what he was trying to tell me.. (warn me)
    Thanks the link.
    I have 3 CD set coming from Italy full of stuff..
    So that will help as well.
    The issue of which pump for which Vin is still not determined conclusively..
    It's better than a TV series, owning a Citroen with an issue.
    No complaints.

    Hi Biker
    Your CD set will have the same information as the Citroen site(we hope) and it should be VIN searchable too the same as the site!
    You will probably spend too much time looking at it, WHEN you get the hang of looking for odd named things and the bloody French logic

    My 2010 C5X7 has 340Klm and not a single rattle.. This is not the car with the suspension issues.
    Passed it's blue slip and has become the regular drive car..
    over $1100 in NSW with transfer, inspection blue and CTP.
    Am pretty sure the de-grease and shiny engine number helped my case,
    since I'm pretty sure an outer lower wishbone is starting to flop about,
    on certain corners, the steering wheel takes up a minor shake..

    In a straight line I have to keep pressure it on the right hand down..
    maybe alignment / wishbone bearings ??

    The RHH performs very well, serviced it's whole 'one owner' life..
    Suspension, I prefer Sports ride, less rock and roll..
    Am thinking that maybe 340K has 'softened' the spheres?/? Is that even possible?

    Much nicer than any other car I've owned, so quiet and relaxed..
    Responds well and the seat is comfortable once I got used to it.
