1. Not necessary but the washer is.
2. I am not sure.
3. Mine is the later type. The plug head is approximately 15mm.

Changing the sump plug washer is a good idea. The early 300 tdi is the same as the 200 tdi and is 27 mm across. The later 300 tdi is smaller and is. The washers come in packs of ten and are very cheap.I am sorry that is the best I can do but someone else should have more specific knowledge. If in doubt buy both as they are very cheap!

Q2 - Any idea why the fuel filter was moved from the engine bay area in the 300tdi, to the off-side rear wheel area in the Puma?

That move was actually made with the TD5 and just continued with the Puma. It's probably just for packaging reasons. Darren

Once again, many thanks for your comments

I finally got a chance to look underneath.

1) The head plug looks to be around 20mm (pic 1). I assume this is the smaller of the two (27mm vs 15mm)?
2) Please share sump plug washer Part# if readily available
3) I am seeing an opening in what looks like the gearbox (red circle in pic 2), but on the diagram the drain plug is located elsewhere (pic 3) and this area should not have an opening.

May I know what this is and is it meant to be open? Shocked

Thank you!

The circle red is a drain hole for the bell housing. Leave it as it is. You usually get a screw in bung called a wading plug with the Land Rover to screw in when deep wading.

This looks to be the sump plug you need
