  1. non starter, Arosa TDI

    Battery is the only thing that makes sense to me too
  2. non starter, Arosa TDI

    battery fully charged in less than 2 hours and is holding its charge, so not the battery...any ideas, anyone
  3. Make sure your battery is good as you'll be using your lights, heater fan and HRW a lot
  4. non starter, Arosa TDI

    battery is 2 and a half years old and has a 3 year warranty...so pleased I kept the receipt
  5. non starter, Arosa TDI

    Battery is a only a couple of years old and hasn't seemed at fault glow plug lights go out but flash when I'm cranking the engine but car won't start. Attached jump leads from another car and it started immediately, ran car for 20 minutes, parked it, tried starting it 4 hours later, no joy, assume battery is at fault?
  6. Scots much better at keeping roads open in bad weather than the rest of Britain, keep tuned to local radio as you head into the Highlands or if you chose the East Coast route. Preparation is key though, flask for hot drinks, sleeping bag and blankets just in case, [fail to prepare, prepare to fail]
  7. Lupo 1.8T Weight

    lift off oversteer?
  8. T Charge

    My request to VW was what was the difference between a tdi from say 03 to that of one from 07, and could the latter changes for Euro4 be retro fitted, I didn't get an answer to either question That's not quite true, I did get several replies but they all said the same thing ...that they did not know
  9. Lupo Open Air

    I think there's still a tdi in the classifieds, that has air con as well as being open air, if you use that as a guide the 1 litre should be considerably less money as the tdi is a more desirable model but it'll give you an idea
  10. TDi - what to look for

    Again gearbox synchros can fail especially around 3rd gear in both directions, manageable indefinitely, but not as nice as a properly functioning box, more likely to happen if the engine has been tweaked as 3rd gear is the cars overtaking gear. Arosa TDI interiors can be crap so look for one from a Sport model
  11. Noisy power steering

    are the pumps the same for every Lupo model
  12. Noisy power steering

    I'll try and spray some white grease in there but its tight and I don't want it on the belt
  13. Noisy power steering

    All I've done is check the fluid level, fine, spayed a lot of wd40 onto the wheel and it has quietened down somewhat but at 167k on the clock I don't expect it to last much longer so I'll seek out a replacement, thanks everyone
  14. VW Lupo 1.4 TDI Sport *****sold*****

    very nice
  15. Noisy power steering

    Noisy power steering, fluid level fine, no leaks and I can't see any old threads on these failing, some WD40 to sort it?
