Changing the belts and oil pump is so much easier with the body off the car - afterall it was designed to be done that way and if they have been doing it regularly for D3’s/D4’s and RRS’s it should be a relatively quick job as the body is designed to be removed for just those jobs. 2018 Melting Silver Mini Countryman PHEV - a test car before Seeing if I could go to totally Petrol/Diesel free motoring

Oil pumps at the front and no need to remove body.

It's only the rear fuel belt which is a pain.

Thanks Oldandconfused do remember reading something abut that which is why I'm going for a well cared for older model. Went down to see it in the flesh today it's immaculate for it's age engine nice and quiet gearbox as smooth as silk. the dealer said he will do the following full service, genuine cam belts both, new oil pump I gave him AFs details, water pump, new disks and pads all round plus anything found on the inspection I'm having done and 12 months MOT. If it ain't broken down it soon will

You're welcome (I know because I had my 2005 D3 blanked Very Happy ). The only other thing I would consider would be to give the only other owner a bell if you can (details will be on the V5) as he/she may be able to tell you a bit more about the car, especially in relation to any fails/advisories re previous MOT's as per the Gov website.

Hi,
Things seem to be going to plan Thumbs Up

All you need to worry about now, is the compressor, alternator & battery, front and rear arms, FBH, glow plugs, ....

Really would be worth a visit if it's cold to see how it starts from Cold Question glow plugs "can" be a pain to change and FBH temperamental, good to know if they work

And as said a call to the previous owner well worth while if you can

Good luck Thumbs Up Corris HSE Dynamic 2016

Always pick up stick in the middle !!

Couldn't resist so went back for another look drove it down the M65 70mph what a car just hummed along, and the command shift will be really handy for when I've got the 2.2 ton caravan on the back and I have to downshift on a hill. flacks been busy this week so it'll be next week I hope before he can check it over for me plus I've got the TD5 to sell the part ex I was offered was Censored so politely declined. If it ain't broken down it soon will
