    Nice , I’m guessing it’s a 2.4d engine ?

    Yep. Was an AJA and the one going in is an AAB. Means I need a few bits though. Was missing the power steering pump and pulley, plus the outer cam belt cover. Pretty sure I can't use any of those parts from the AJA on the AAB.

    What are you doing with the old AJA? I wouldnít mind a spare AJA and ABL. Iíll rebuild myself. Also what was the original steering wheel out of? I like that.

    Got to figure out if I need to steal any bits first. Having a bit of a head scratch around the PS pump (was missing from the AAB) and the engine mounts. Not sure what is interchangeable at the moment. Once I've sussed that, the AJA will be available for cheap.

    The replacement wheel is just a barchetta one on an eBay hub. £27 all in.

    Iíll have no need for any ancillaries anyway just the main stuff so that sounds perfect. Just let me know when itís available and we can chat again.

    What was the other wheel out of? The plastic one? Looks VAG?

    Ah gotcha. I thought the old one was just the standard '98 spec wheel. If not, I have no idea!

    Currently a bit confused about the engine mountings. The AAB has a much thinner mount and is threaded for bolts, with the AJA mount having protruding threads for nuts to go on.

    I think I need to keep the AAB bracket as that also supports the PS pump - which means I also need to use the AAB mount to keep the overall bracket+mount height the same. Do I just need to get the bolts for the AAB mount?

    Quick call to Cali campers and I'm sorted (in principle!)

    Turns out I CAN use the old PS pump, I 'just' need to switch the pulleys and then the drivers side engine mount and bracket. All the ancilliaries are interchangeable, but it's an all or nothing deal due to the different pulley arrangements.

    Both engines are sat on pallets in my garage now, so at least I have plenty of dry space to do this.

    Need to do this without messing up the timing on my new motor though, so can anyone point me in the right direction of a timing lock tool set that'll let me do this? Prices vary massively... don't want to pay over the odds for something that has loads of unnecessary stuff - but similarly, don't want to get a cheaper one that is missing stuff I need.

    Why would you mess up the timing when youíre only changing the ancillary pulleys? I may have missed something but the crAnk sprocket is on a woodruff key and youíll only be swapping the harmonic dampener to be anywhere near the timing?

    I have to switch the crank pulley. Surely (if not locked) that will screw with my timing since it drives the main toothed belt behind the larger, outer v-belt lip?
