Mini One D - engine out, how difficult?

Just registered, this looks like a very useful and helpful forum

Thinking about looking at a 2003 One D with a seized engine (rad failed). Never been near a new shape Mini, so just wondering how difficult it is to remove the engine? Any special tools required?

I have the garage, tools and experience, just not sure whether I have the enthusiasm/time if it's a pig of a job.

Don't know yet how much damage the engine might have, I see it's a Toyota engine, if it's worth rebuilding, are parts readily available? Any good Mini spares suppliers anyone can suggest?

Thanks for any replies.

Good source of used parts from these Mini Breakers:
Mintech Spares UK- mini breakers uk - Mintech Spares UK BMW Mini Parts

MiniMatt|BMW|MINI|Modifications|Parts|Spares|Servi ce|Tuning|Repairs|Racing

The Mini One Diesel engine was also used in the Toyota Yaris so many parts are common to both. If you have the garage, tools and experience I don't think you will find anything daunting about removing the engine & gearbox, if anything it looks like the Mini petrol engine is a tighter fit.
