CRD Engine Number Location....Anyone?
 
Does anyone know the exact location of where the engine number is stamped on the CRD engine itself?

Tried to register my new rig with the local transport dept and came across a moronic bureaucrat today who said she needed to sight the actual number on the engine. Just want to :slapfight: the silly cow. I just wished someone else served me at the counter.

Ant assistance would be appreciated.

I just went out to have a look on mine and it will be impossible to find it without the use of a mirror on a stick and even then difficult without knowing where it is. There are so many things in the way. Surely the paperwork from the selling dealer will be enough to shut the pen pusher up ?

Thanks guys, I'll call Singleton in the morning unless some of our fine American cousins have some something to add in the meantime.

I'll also call Queensland Transport and speak to someone with more that 2 brain cells to bring some common sense to the fore.

AussieWK2, I dont know whether this will help, but the last numbers on the VIN are the engine no. BC690977 is my engine no, Whether Qld transport will accept this I am not sure, you could get a Stat dec from the dealer, and they will probably accept it, but that said Qld Transport are a Huge PITA. All the best.

Ok, I'm now all sorted, registered and legal!

I called Singleton this morning and they just referred me to Jeep.

I called Suttons and spoke to a service tech and he directed me to look on the "passenger" under side of the engine.

I moseyed on out, started the engine hit quadra lift up, slid under the car and nothing on the passenger side of the engine! Armed with common sense I then slid over to the "driver" under side of the engine and half way up the side of the engine where the block meets the bellhousing I found the engine number.

Took it to Queensland Transport, this time got another lady to process my rego and this one was clever. She asked me to slide under the car and read out the number, which I did (I had already memorised it by this stage)

So, I'm all set, stamp duty and rego paid!

To all CRD owners, take note of engine # location. Don't expect Jeep Australia to know this basic stuff, the tech I spoke to said their records on the WK2 are still incomplete!
