    Just a quick one how do I know what code my engine I presume its on the sticker in the sparewheel well, there's nothing that looks like AFB AKN etc

    Its a 1.9 TDI 90 BHP SE 1996 if that helps

    Oh while I remember when I start the car the battery light remains on til I rev it makes the lights brighter too any clues?

    Its one of the three letter codes near the top of the boot sticker, which is also duplicated in the front of the service book.

    Post a pic if you want and i'll point it out.

    My car has a stamp on the rocker cover which has the code and I am sure also has a sticker on the rocker cover which has the engine number and maybe code.
