[Engine] New owner saying hi - and looking for part numbers for the air filter assembly
#1
Hi all,

New owner here, purchased a 2009 ("first" model) which I believe was a runout version of the old car that was available for a couple of years between 2008-2010?

It's a 1.4 petrol with only 75k on the clock.  Runs nicely, been pretty well looked after.  It does however have a weird after market air filter so I'd very much like to restore it to the original box.  Does anyone have access to a service manual (or picture) that might show me which parts have been removed?

I'm thinking something like this but for the 1.4 model... (See second post on this tread)

can't seem to find a decent picture of a 1.4 engine bay on google!

Much appreciated!

Hi & welcome to the forum.
The best place to find part numbers is normally catcar, although it's not really practical to buy from them. Once you see what you need, you can search online for the part number.

Biggest issue I've got now is that not sure what pipe work has been cut out to fit the box. I've still got an intake pipe from the front of the car (which leads to nowhere) then the strangest giant air filter which had had some pipework cut to fit it in. It's pretty substantial but doesn't add any noise thankfully. 
Very strange!
Unsure if related in any way but the cars temperature guage rises but never past 65 degrees at most, anyone know the 'normal' running temperature for the small petrol?
Other than that it's a nice little car and the only other job is to get the spongy brake pedal sorted.

Hi there welcome to the forum your temp gauge should get up to approx 85. The easiest way to check is from cold watch the gauge as it warms up and when gauge gets about 90 it will drop back when the thermostat opens to about 85.
Are we there yet????? Huh

Thanks Tomcat, not got anywhere near that temperature despite decent journeys. Thermostat maybe, will report back when have had chance to investigate.

It could be that the thermostat has been removed.

Afraid not, but I will try to post one up when can get a picture of it in the light.

As for thermostat - temperature does rise but not to the extent where it'll be near 80 (or over 70 to be honest).
