Thanks Paul, it's SWMBO's car, and she's away for a couple of days, so I can't check at the moment.You should be able to see a yellow tube when looking at the front of the engine, left of centre (maybe it's not yellow on your 01 model).
Right. Handbook says two ways of checking, dash readout or dipstick. On the 1.4 16v version, the dipstick is shown as being under a plate/box to the front of the engine, ie front of the car. The pic shows it to be hidden, and by golly if it's there at all, it's well hidden, as I can't see it, whether it's yellow, blue or purple. I think when we get the promised dealer recall for the bonnet catch, which is in the system, I understand, I'll get them to point it out to me.Thanks Paul, it's SWMBO's car, and she's away for a couple of days, so I can't check at the moment.
I will report back!
In other words a dipstick designed by a dipstick............The dipstick is hidden under the aluminium box at the front of the engine.It's a ***** to get to and from memory it's painted brown so it's even more difficult to see.:crazy:
