SEAT Ibiza 1.4SE - woodside
Car is 3.5 year old and done 58000 and has dropped a valve. Dealers say never heard of this happening before. Options are new engine ( £3500 ) or re-build.
Am considering re-manufactured engine but replacement heads are apparently in short supply. Any suggestions / recommendations

Find out the engine code and contact VW / seat breakers for a similar replacement with a 3 month warranty ;-)

got to agree with dox a good breaker will sell you a good low mileage engine for this for £500 just make sure the belt is changed before you have the engine fitted

Put your details into this site and the breakers will phone you from all over the country with different prices including delivery to your door ,do it when you can answer the phone for the next 2 hours uninterupted mind because your phone will either explode or nobody will have one.

Good luck
