Before anyone jumps up and down and says theres a description in the tech section I am already aware.
I phoned vaux today to obtain pricing on cam belt kits and other service parts. When I asked for a water pump (which I'm replacing as a matter of course) I was asked which I engine I had. Feeling confident I told her 1.6 16v Z16XE. The smugness of me actually knowing evaporated very quickly when they asked for the rest of the code
I checked the ageing sticker on my cam cover which proudly advertises Z16XE. I started thinking WTF? I went home and checked my "car pass" and indeed there are other numbers after the Z16XE. So my question is what do these numbers and letters mean? (They obviously have some application otherwise they wouldn't of asked). My life won't expire if I don't find out but I just wondered if anyone had an idea.
