Looking for B3 1.6 TD cylinder head

Post by bazwar » Thu Jul 11, 2019 9:48 pm

picked my car up from the garage after having the clutch and rad switch changed and on the 5 mile drive home i burst a hose and the cylinder head cracked :(
obviously not happy but in talks with them as to how to move forward as they hadn't seen the car running until they had done the work and just checked the rad was coming on.
im finding it hard to source a 1.6 td cylinder head for my 1990 b3 wagon
any help much appreciated. im in Bristol

Can you post your engine code? With that, it might be possible to identify a part number and that might make your search easier, (if that part was used in other models for example).

Not sure if this will help you or not.

Part number for cylinder had for SB engine is:

068103351AK (bare head)

or

068103265MX (with valves and camshaft).

Other EU market vehicles that used these part numbers shown in the screen shot:
