    bit tricky to manouver the old one out past the drive shaft assuming its the isuzu engine dti. Its bolted on at the bk of the engine into the side of the gearbox. I bolt nds to be got at from above the other from below however make sure you remove the bracket that holds the atmospheric pressure sensor. The starter will foul this and prevent you from getting it out. Best if u buy a haynes manual its pretty gd for that type of stuff!

    Hey "good on ya". Thanks for the update - I saw your post and wondered how it would turn out. Satisfying doing something like that yourself especially if its the first job of its kind for you. Nice to save a few bucks too...
