    Lupo 1 litre

    The cat cleaner did the trick, CO and hydrocarbons back to normal, leaks in the pipework bodged for now, 12 month ticket issued. Anyone want it?

    HELP! SDI power steering pipes burst.

    I tried this on my Lupo TDI, whether it will work depends on where the replacement section is inserted, mine had split nearer to the connection and kept blowing off. I was lucky to get an as new replacement from a breakers yard as they aren't in stock anymore

    Lupo 1 litre

    I've done the air filters [2] the ones coming off were clean, I like the idea of an Italian tune up too, its worked before with 1.4's that have failed on emissions, thanks guys

    Lupo 1 litre

    My daughters 1 litre has just failed its MOT on emissions, she's had it a year but its only ever been used for short journeys, to and from work, 5 miles morning and evening, the testers said the readings were erratic, nearly there but then wandering off. I plan an engine service, air filters, oil change and that old standby a large dose of cat cleaner. The car is too good to be written off interior and body [black] are both very good, mileage is quite high for a 2002 car at 129k but it has been looked after, is anything else I should be looking at? As the value of the car is low I don't want to spend much on getting it fixed.

    Lupo Drivers Window Motor

    If you can locate one, I'd chose a wind up window regulator over the electric version, these are a problem on both Lupo's and Arosa's. I know it won't fit in with the style of a GTI but if you want an easy life...keep it simple

    Front springs from 1.0

    correct, the 1 litre is an all alloy unit and much lighter than say the TDi

    Aftermarket Steering Wheel HELP

    You need a boss kit to fit it to, [plenty on ebay] then you can bolt it in place of the existing wheel, there are YouTube vids of how to take the old one off, bear in mind you lose your airbag
