  1. from the top - maybe easier without airbox. 30 min job.
  2. lupo poarts

    Near Wigan.
  3. lupo poarts

    if you weren't so far I'd have the wings and bumper & the front lights.
  4. Me too. But judging by the sudden influx of responses in the last day or so, we're all still keen to help him out
  5. It's a brake pipe. As above, I'd just go to your motor factors and get one made. But from your original post: Problem solved really. The "correct" one isn't any more or any less functional really.
  6. Engines that'll go in the 1.0 Lupo

    Engine mounts would probably be your biggest issue there, not going to be a simple swap. Anything from the 6N / 6N2 / 6X era should just be a simple change. Yes the wiring is a bit of a pain maybe, but the rest is easy!
  7. Engines that'll go in the 1.0 Lupo

    lupo sport engine - 100hp standard, few mods will see your 120 target.
  8. FFR Gearbox

    No worries. Let us all know how you get on!

    Sure. Replace it with any 085 box. http://workshop-manuals.com/volkswagen/polo-mk3/power_transmission/5-speed_manual_gearbox_085/technical_data/gearbox_identification/code_letters_gearbox_allocation_ratios_capacities/ http://workshop-manuals.com/volkswagen/polo-mk3/power_transmission/5-speed_manual_gearbox_085/technical_data/gearbox_identification/code_letters_gearbox_allocation_ratios_capacities_2/ Find one you like the look of!

    Wouldn't say it's common; but it can happen when you change the box. If the RPM stays the exact same it certainly indicates the selector. How's your reverse?

  13. Competition suspension - Lupo Cup set up?

    Where did you get them?
  14. Engine help needed

    If you're changing the bottom end then you may as well just do change the rings. Easy enough to do, can leave the block in the car as well too. Just remove head and sump
  15. Alarm help please people

    I think you've done a decent job of identifying the problem yourself to be honest.
  16. lupo gti head wanted

    Sounds a little pricey but not too far off. Yeah have a look, if the damage is minimal you may as well repair it. It's just time consuming!
  17. Sump!

    Are they the same part number? You've only included one.
  18. lupo gti head wanted

    How bad is the damage to the valve seats? Can you not just replace the valves?
  19. Heater temp

    Interesting. Mine failed and stayed closed.
  20. Heater temp

    If the thermostat was faulty it wouldn't open, not be permanently open?
  21. non starter, Arosa TDI

    Certainly seems like the battery! Put it on charge for a bit?
  22. Lupo interior door Handles?

    Yeah I can sell the whole door cards. Drop me a message.
  23. Lupo gti doors on lupo

    Bonnet is around 5kg saving. Doors around 10kg each. The above mentions some of this but i have weighed them for myself. The difference between normal and GTI really has to be experienced to appreciate it. Even the windows (Which i have a spare drivers one if anyone is after one) have a noticeable difference.
  24. Certainly would. What if the car is just on igniton on? Does the stereo work then?
  25. Lupo gti doors on lupo

    Ah fair enough then. Usually it's for the reduced weight!
