20v urq report..pretty long

unlike the other 20vts, the engine number on the rr is located at the *rear*
of the engine, just under the exhaust manifold i.e. the same side as the
usual engine code location, but at the rear, not the front. it can be
disconcerting to look in the usual location and see a blank. you will need
a mirror to see it properly.
the diagnostic ports are located in the rhs footwell (remember mine is a
rhd). i'd assume that this means it is in the passenger footwell on your
car. they are located just to the rear of the dash trim, located
vertically, and before the cardboard trim starts (if you understand what i
mean). vag-com (wonderful tool) works just fine on the rr, but you just get
the basic measurement blocks, and no other fancy stuff. still that is all

Thanks for your answer Dave!
We wanted to check the codes but didn't find the damn connectors in the
driver's side footwell....where the hell can they be?
Also, where is the engine code (RR) located exactly? We looked after this
during half an hour and didn't find this *%£@#&!!!!

Thanks for the info!
We'll check everything carefully anyway!
