Hi juleeeh, Three options you could try
1) If you do online banking you could try getting any information this way (previous statements etc)
2) SAR them, they would have 40 days to supply you with all they hold on record for you, you have to pay a one off fee of 10 and because of this they have to look maybe a bit harder than they did by just asking first time around. This is not guaranteed to shed any light on the loan in question, but might. If it does it may still be difficult to say for certain that you were paying PPI as it could have been an upfront payment (added on at the beginning) but you might be able to tell by the total amount payable for the loan taking into account the APR rate at the time and the loan term
3) If you have the loan account number, just send in a questionnaire and see what response you get
