    Engine code location

    Log book says BMN 03G 103 308C, I got this number off the cylinder head but typical both BKD and BMN share this part. Any other ideas how I can be 100% sure? Thanks

    Engine code location

    Blower Motor

    Cheers, I dont see what else could go wrong, so must be a new faulty unit I guess. I'm within 30 days so I think i might just send this one back and try another new one. ****** annoying in this weather, good luck to me getting home later!

    Shaking and Rumbling at 50mph and over?

    I'd put money on your front wheels are buckled (from pot holes). Swap rear to the front a test them. I had similar issue and this resolved it In the short term, I then replaced the wheels.

I've got someone professional looking at the turbo tomorrow as it...

    Aware my car is not everyones taste anyway haha but I LOVE IT. Straight piped my 170 2.0tdi. Barely any smoke, only low rev in high gear foot down. Loads of intake noise, louder than my Focus ST. Strangely doesn't sound like a tractor, has quite a nice start up sound to be honest. Also...
