    What mileage are you currently on, when (and at what mileage) was the car last serviced?

    Nice easy one that Staffy.

    Parts

    Flush for engine,injectors, Vx sell Fortron ones, expensive if you dont use trade card btw

    Pollen Filter, easy fit, just lift up the seal strip on the bulkhead and replace

    Air filter, unscrew the 5 or 6 torx, lift lid fit and replace lid.

    Oil Filter, Front right of engine as you look at it, cartridge, unscrew the top, replace both small rubber and large rubber on the stalk, push in the cart and screw back up, doesn't need to much tightning btw

    5 litres of oil, I use semi, book says full synth, but thats only if you want to run for 20k between services.

    Sump plug seal ring, always replace this one.

    Diesel Filter, alongside the header tank bottle, torx screw on top, undo and replace rubber seal again, undo screw at the bottom, allow old derv to run out, tighten up and half filll the housing with fresh derv, push the new filter in and top up the derv, replace top, get it right or it will leak.

    (you must fill the filter housing back up or you will get air in the system and it wont start btw)

    Final one is oil reconditioner, again Fortron, this goes in the new oil and protects against the flush residue that is still in the engine.

    HTH.

    Oh yeah, a few more pointers, the sump plug will be tight, you may need to employ the spanner over the wrench tactic to free it off.

    The electric plug on the unit next to the oil filter needs to come off for access to the filter housing, you'll see it gets in the way.

    Engine flush to be ran in a hot engine on idle for no more than 10 minutes.

    Hmmm, that picture is from a 54 2.0dti, can't imagine it's anywhere else, it's the same as my 98 2.0dti B model was.

    Would it be underneath the car where the plastic covering is?
