Almost impossible to find even with the engine out, why do you need to find it? If it is a UK registered car and you PM me the reg I should be able to give you the full number.

hi
i am from victoria australia, and in order to transfer the vehicle into my name, i have to obtain a Roadworthy Certificate which requires to confirm the engine number on the engine matches with the engine number on the paper work.

sorry i told a lie
the engine no is located below coil pack on flat by oil pressure switch it would be AYD if gb spec
look at the area below coil pack just where the gearbox bolts to the engine
