Im just wondering, will this definetly fit in my car?? It is quite a good deal cos u also get the gearknob n gaiter n handbrake handle and gaiter!!

Also does any1 know what engine is in the 1.4 8v Seat Ibiza Estillo??

Is it a 1390cc SOHC or 1391cc or a 1390cc DOHC engine??

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI....MEWA:IT&viewitem=&item=110103381146&rd=1&rd=1

Yeah, that will fit your car. It is exactly the same as the one I stripped out of my car (94 GTi)

If your car is 8v, it will only have 1 inlet and 1 outlet valve per cylinder, so it can only be a single camshaft so an SOHC. Hence the book will be ok for you. TBH unless you are seriously considering stripping the engine, even if it was the DOHC engine, it would still answer 95% of the questions. I've got a Haynes manual for the A3 which doesn't cover the S3 or quattro models - however it is invaluable.

Hope that helps.

Mk2 Ibiza were never available over here with 1.4 16valve engines.
That Haynes Manual is the same one I've got from when I had my Ibiza.

If you look closely on that picture you'll see 2 little rectangular covers, under there is are screw holes which hold it down at the rear.
Although wether the mounts will be there in yours, I don't know.

Wud the Mk4 Polo 1.4 16v engine be a straight swap?? Sounds tempting to dump on in my car!!

Rite a thing with the centre console, lookig at the bit that sits at the front, it has a hole in it n in the haynes manual it says it bolts to abit on the floor beside the heaters, but mine has a plastic cover there, does this plastic cover thing come off?!
