Default 08 bover van 2.2 breaking

My engines died completely its going to cost a lot off money I don't have, it's having to be scraped due to the engine been broken, im going to strip parts from the van question it tho is it really worth the hassle doing so

Parts to strip

Two front lights
Two rear lights
Turbo
Exhaust
Windscreen wiper motor

Is there anything else I could strip off and sell on ?


Cheers everybody

Surely a replacement engine is going to cost less than a replacement vehicle. I've got a 10 year old 307 and would be prepared to replace the engine if it dies as it would be much cheaper than replacing the whole car.

Boxer engines are harder to find though storeman a 10 year old 307 engine can be had for as little as 100 the boxer engine will cost 1000 at least !!

I've from Sunderland, I'm been quoted 1800 fitted for a 2nd hand engine and upto 2600 for a recon... All because of a snapped glow plug inside the engine causing damage etc, trouble is getting a engine hard to get from what I'm been told.

If it is the facelift one the engine is also fitted to transits and mondeos jaguars etc so that's why they are hard to find they are in high demand

Amazing how one particular engine would be so hard to find compared with another. Just glad I don't own a Boxer then.

Did the glow plug come apart with the engine running?
