Bought d1 03 plate

Post by Sheepshag » Mon Apr 10, 2017 8:57 pm

I bought an 03 D1 yesterday my wife's always wanted one my little boy loves it and I think it's awesome
I'm disabled so I get in and out easily. It looks and sounds great.
Bit of rust around back door handle so I mentioned i would do it to the couple we bought it off and he gave me a can of spray that matches saying he was going to do it. I checked the windows and they worked but he looked nervous so anyway I'm no mechanic but I bought it. He said the gasket had been done so I'm worried that is a lie as no paperwork for that. How can I be sure the gasket is done? I need to Mot it 1st may so hoping it passes it failed on a exhaust bracket last year and no advisory. We are really happy with it but now silently I'm worrying

A D1 on a '03? I suspect you have a D2 - probably a TD5?

Without paperwork you should probably assume it's not been done. But not all need doing - mine's got 190k on the clock and still on the original Head Gasket as far as I'm aware - and I've had it for the last 100k and pushed it really hard.

I was shocked to see that soft, limp body squirm wildly as it was pumped hard and fast. I'd never been to a Build-a-Bear before.

Can you post a picture of the car so we can confirm that is is a D2?
