I'm changing the engine on my 2008 Fiat Grande Punto 1.3 multijet. What parts will I have to take off the old engine to put on the replacement so that I don't need to mess about with the electronics.

I'm guessing you are replacing like with like.

The easy way is to follow all the wires going to the engine, and pull all the electronic components, which are generally sensors and fit these on the new block.

If you are swapping to a larger engine or another type of engine it's not always this easy as there are some differences in mounting points and the way these work.
