    Heavy clutch when hot

    Hi, hoping one of you experts can help me. I have had the 1.0 loop for a few months now and done 5K miles ( now 97K), Soon after getting it I noticed it was hard to get in reverse and the pedal had dropped so read up on here it was probably the pedal box. Checked it and yes it was. So I had that replaced and all was good. I had noticed the clutch seemed to be heaviver when crawling in traffic on my way home but didn't really pay attention. Now a week ago I felt somthing give and started to get a click when I pressed the clutch, this dosen't happen cold only once warm, Yesterday the clutch cable went, I fitted a new one this morning and I thought great that was the problem, but this evening on the way home it's clicking and heavy again. The click seems to be around the bite point. So I have come to the conclusion it must be a clutch problem that has caused the broken pedal box and now snapped cable. read this post and stealthie is saying the clutch gets stiff when it gets old http://forums.clublu...ch read this post and lewrssll is saying fork selector sleeve thing... http://forums.clublu...=+stiff +clutch any body got any sugestions many thanks in advance.

    Hi Bought a Lupo a couple of months ago Have been fixing it up, brakes were shot as it's been standing for a while. Also had problems with getting gears and thanks to posts on this forum I found it was the pedal box that was cracked so had to replace that also. Sneaked a quick pic this afternoon in the New forest. Not new to VW's but am new to Lupo's so this looks like a great place to learn. cheers Paul

    Bonnet Insulation

    Hi Had my 1.0MPI 2001 lupo for a month or so now and just getting on top of the important things first including changing the pedal box , new brakes , cam belt etc, I have noticed there is no sound insualtion on the bonnet, is this normal or has it been removed? Anybody got any ideas where I can get it from, I can buy the material but would be easier to get a proper one. Will get some pics up soon. thanks Paul
