Trouble is there are 2 different diameters (and therefore flange sizes) .. you won't know if it's right till you offer it up. Then it's a hassle if you've bought it online.

It's not for you to say that part is the right one for the OP just 'cos it was right for you. As I pointed out earlier there are TWO different sizes (bore and flange) stocked by ECP, who are also NCP (which are ECP's online only version) and it was only by trial and error did they supply the correct one eventually. In this case the OP has been made aware of this fact, and it's upto them to decide or take another course of action. It's buyer beware not do it 'cos I say so. Not dissing your opinion, you understand, just saying....🤔

I mustve just got lucky then, I bought one for my 2.0 tdci ghia, and 2 weeks ago bought one for the 2.2 tdci st, both times it was bang on. Ive worked on a few Mondeos now and never seen a diffrent bore or flange on any of them. You learn something new everyday though :)

I'll dig thro' my receipts and see if I've still got the part number. I know that the gasket from ECP was also too small and I had to get the right one from Ford by giving the vin. Hopefully the OP will update this thread and let us know how they got on.

I think I'm just gonna go with the Ford part. Even searching with the VIN gives a lot of "equivalent to" or "substitute for" results so I'm not really any further forward.

The last thing I want is to be p*ssing about returning parts with it up on the ramps

Don't blame you. Don't forget the gasket ring too!
