    Any garage with Autodata should be able to tell you. Hopefully someone on here will have the details and post here.

    Is that the X17DT or X17DTL?

    They are both different torque settings - but I can let you know if you tell me the engine code

    Hi, apparently the engine is the DT model, not the DTL. If anyone can help, i'd be grateful.

    thanks
