    Never done it on a dti.

    Please don't take this the wrong way but if you are asking how to replace the piston rings then I would suggest you shouldn't take on a job that size! No offence intended.

    10 minute job, lol.

    The short version? Head off, exhaust off, sump off, end caps off, pistons out.

    No, with SRi's you have to remove the sunroof mechanism first, and if yours hasn't got one then you can't change the piston rings.

    Not a job for faint hearted. As stated its rather involved an basically requires the engine to be fully stripped.

    What is reason for changing the rings?


    Because really for a proper job you need to measure the bore and from the bore measurements you can work out if oversized rings will be needed.


    A Haynes manual may help.


    but unless your fairly experienced diyer I wouldn't recommend it. Especially of you'd like your car too run again.


    But for info Sri club etc has diddly squit to do with engine it's just trim level etc.
