There should be a square aluminium "Build Plate" (size of cigarette packet?) mounted somewhere on the firewall - this plate will have build information such as Chassis Number, Engine Number, Transmission Number etc, etc.
If you cannot locate this plate, then check the 'cc rating' of your engine listed on your registration/MOT papers, or compare to these two engine types (your vehicle will have one or the other):
BJ 14 - 1,290 cc
B3 14 - 1,324 cc
Your 'full' engine number will be stamped on the engine block (or may also be recorded on your registration or Warrant/MOT papers).
Hope this helps,

You can find a service manual on ebay for a few bucks. Wiper motors can be had at parts stores way cheaper than dealers. However the new parts availability on that old car is nil. I would take a look over on ebay and see if anyone has any new old stock Festiva parts for sale.

Go to the Ford dealership, 9 times out of 10 they wont even charge you, they can enter your VIN number into thier database and get the code. If you have the owners manual, it should've been in there somewhere.
Hi there. First make sure that your engine is idling fast enough. If the idle is too low (below 750rpm), it is likely to stall on idle. You should also check for vacuum leaks around the intake manifold and associated black rubber hoses. Some people use carb cleaner spray to spray around the hoses and seal areas to check for leaks, because the engine will speed up if a leak is found. I rough idle can also be caused by a bad spark plug wire or fouled spark plug or even a overly rich or lean idle fuel mixture. So remove the plugs and check that the plugs are burning clean (no black soot or glazing). The plugs should be near white clean. If you find a bad plug, then follow the wire back to the coil. Verify wire is good such as testing with an ohm meter and comparing the reading to the others. A big difference would indicate a problem.
