Hi peeps
I've got a 307 hdi 2.0 sohc diesel . I have taken the head off it as my glow plug snapped and went inside,,,,, on removing head I found that the piston head is damaged, and cylinder head, going to get head skimmed, my question is can I change piston in situe or do I have to take the engine out, it is no. 4 cylinder, left side nearest fly wheel, I was hoping just to change the one piston, I have been told that It shouldn't be a problem changing just one, as the pistons are all evenly matched nowerdays when it comes to balancing ??? Any advice, engine is in pieces at the moment so quick response would be really helpful, thanks guys

You can change a piston in situ.

Before replacing just one you need to check the measurements of the other 3 bores to check they compare, and you'll need to run a glaze buster over the affected bore.

TBH, it's a lot of time and expense and unless it's an ultra low miler or summat I doubt there's a 2.0D 307 Left which is financially worth doing the repairs on.
