    open the bonnet, on the left side or drivers side of the engine, you will see 3 letters which is your engine code.
    you can also look in your boot under the carpet where your spare wheel is

    This is my service book. My engine code is 'BRB'. As mentioned above, this sticker should also be in the boot under the carpet.
