I was wondering if anyone could shed light on this issue as I haven't been able to find anything concrete on where exactly to look for it.

Basically the guy that did my road worthy is a tosser and wrote down the wrong number on my roadworthy. Instead of simply fixing his mistake he now says he needs to sight it on the car. But he doesn't seem to know where it is.

Does anyone know definitely where to get this number from
Any help is appreciated.

Have a look and you'll be able to confirm yourself.

The number on the fire wall will be the chassis number; is that what your after? or the engine number?

I'm after the engine number.

So the one on the firewall is not the number that I need. Does anyone which side of the engine the number is on? So if I'm facing the engine which side should I be looking at.
