I've managed to find one, its not perfect, but pretty good.

Its a 99 1.8RT Sport (why the sport moniker, its not that fast!).

Cambelt was done at 83k (its been written on the top of the engine), exhaust isn't blowing (I'm sure it was on the 1.6 that I drove a few days earlier).

Only problems are the fan not working on 1/2/3, and the drivers side vent not opening without you opening the door and sticking your fingers in ....

Picked up the thermal fuses to fix the fan problem last night (maplins were out of stock of the 5amp choccy block!).

1999 Laguna 1.8 RT Sport
