Hi All.
I have a 2016 tekna 1.2 petrol which has just had a brand new engine fitted as the other one imploded on the M1 ten weeks back. Luckily all covered by nissan extended warranty.
Having collected my car I lifted the bonnet at home to inspect the works, and something didn't quite look right.
It was missing an engine cover which I could swear was on the previous.
I emailed the dealer and they said 1.2 petrols don't have a cover , is this right ? Was I imagining my previous engine had one ? Or do the newer engines, assuming mine was recently off production line not come with a cover ??
Any advice ? Thanks

1.3 j12 engine doesn't have a cover and it makes the bay look messy something I notice from my Karoq.
Before Skoda Karoq SEL, virtual dash, heated screen.

Weingels, we had a 2014 QQ J11A for 5 years without an Engine Cover, Yes it would have looked much better !. Also our newer QQ J11B does not have one and ..... - Dave 😉

QQ J11A 1,2L :

1.2 and 1.3 engines don't have engine covers only 1.5 diesel k9k and some of the end R9Ms have engine covers

Thanks .....the dealer said the 1.2 never had an engine cover .....but I could have put money on it that my old one did.....must be going mad.
Why would these specific engines not have a cover , apart from looking neater do they serve another purpose ?

Waingels, who needs Engine Covers when you could have an Engine like these - Dave 😁 👍

A cover can help with acoustics but it takes up room and costs money.


You could always have tried Google:

Thanks all. Confident now that I must have been imagining a cover previously.
