The model number will tell you.


The model numbers look like ANH10, or similar.

Your auction sheet should have it listed on there.

If your model has a 15 in it, it is 4WD, eg. ANH15.

First, try your auction sheet.

Second, try your door frames; A post, but probably B post.

Or engine bay somewhere !


The 'plate' should give you the model number, and lots of other stuff.

Do you know your trim level ? It was a MZG wasn't it.

Models numbers change with engine size and drive system.

Is yours Gen 1 or 2. I think it was 1 from memory.

If it has the 3 litre it is Gen 1.

easiest and quickest would be to lay under the vehicle at the rear, if you have 4wheel drive it should have a diff and propshaft, the front wheel drive version just have a normal solid axle, if you had the 2,4 it would be easier to see by looking at the gearbox from under the bonnet, there you can easily see a propshaft or not depending on which one you have, hope that helps
