Engine Code ?

How can I find out what engine code my vehicle has?

I mean I/we have the VIN and the engine number, but I can find no reference to an engine code of which I need to locate engine spares that fit the frst time around.

And yes I know I can apply to an online motor factor but there is a problem in that, in fact there's a few but primarily the parts listed under the title input give several options, all different. Where in investigating further I come across the request the buyer ascertains the part is correct before ordering, where how can the buyer ascertain a part is correct before purchase if all they have is the VIN, engine serial number and vehicle registration that bears no apparent relationship to the numbers supplied alongside the parts, the engine code?

Honestly I have ordered parts for many different machines in the past, even teaching myself to use manufacturers parts identification sysetms of which they did make readily available - it ensured genuine parts were fitted to maintain manufacturers good names, but I have never had the problems I am having with identifying parts for Renaults.

And yeah I know why I neglected my Clio, it was in part through exasperation at parts identification, where it is my desire not to neglect the Kangoo, so this parts identification issue has to be addressed.

Re: Engine Code ?

And I have just tried to read the engine number, but due to the ' lightly done ' dot matrix stamping renault appears to do into the engine paint only most of the number is gone - high heat area under the exhaust manifold and I buggered up the nuts getting the manifold shield off for nothing

So unless I can find out what the engine code is I am stuffed as far as identifying engine parts, where you'd think what the engine is should be recorded somehere in the VIN or at least the engine serial number from the V5 should be able lead to what the engine is, but nah, it appears to be not that simple with Renault, unless I am missing something.

It always was in the past one would go part hunting armed with chassis number and engine number to get the right parts first time around, where I would have thought in this day and age it would be even simpler - oh it is, one just has to supply their registration number, but it's not when that registration number corresponds to a number of parts all of which are different to bring me to where I am now, effectively stuffed, where none of the recorded vehicle identification numbers appears to help.

Oh and this current need is for the purposes of the cambelt change - identifying the correct water pump.
