I thought this engine was also in the mazda mpv.. there was a engine on trade me for 800 last weekscanner wrote:Well it will be different from a diesel engined Bongo then, but the same as a V6 petrol Bongo though, the engine is from a Mazda 929 car - not (apparently) a common model anywhere.moggyNZ wrote:Ours is a 1997 V6 automatic, which may be why the engine parts are different, as I am guessing that the Bongo Friendee doesn't have that engine as a common option for those imported into NZ???

I seem to have missed most of these replies, but as an update, the bodyshop company that the van is with has managed to locate a replacement roof rather than having to repair it. A slight hiccup with the insurance company but we should have it back this week.
