  1. nearside rear light cluster

    I need a nsr light cluster like this one https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/MAGNETI-MARELLI-Combination-Rearlight-Seat-Arosa-6H-1997-2004-Hatchback/132464566071?_trkparms=aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20160727114228%26meid%3D8c17effcc63445748e0200336c807c69%26pid%3D100290%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D4%26sd%3D132464566071%26itm%3D132464566071&_trksid=p2060778.c100290.m3507 but I don't want to pay the price being asked, which I think is ridiculous
  2. nearside rear light cluster

    I've bid on a pair with black surrounds as opposed to red, if I get those for circa £30 I'll be happy, so that's what I'd like to pay
  3. lupo editions: SDI automatic? 4WD?

    you want one of those Golf Mk 2 Country models, lhd, stilts, very odd and when you open the bonnet the engine is a long way down
  4. For sale or possibly breaking 02 Seat Arosa 1.4 TDI

    both rear light clusters if you have them, thanks
  5. Black Lupo GTI “the black bag”

    the seats are very nice
  6. Hello :)

    Opel and Vx had German designs but now French PSA
  7. Lupo GTI for sale

    Very nice, only reservation I'd add is that you can buy a salt free Japanese car for similar money
  8. Beautiful VW Lupo Leather Interior

    Very nice, probably cost a lot more to have this type of quality done were you to start from scratch. Are you open to offers?
  9. Arosa boot spoiler

    a couple of picks of the boot spoiler on one our Arosa TDi's, these are very rare and quite different to the ones for the Lupo so worth a look
  10. non starter, Arosa TDI

    faulty relay at fault, with 109 code on the top
  11. 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?
  12. non starter, Arosa TDI

    no faults showing and whilst it will run its only briefly, cuts out after a few seconds, next step is to check the in tank fuel pump
  13. what would you replace? (lupo GTi)

    For the last week or so I've been driving around my Lupo TDI with no power steering, its not especially heavy even for parking maneuvers, as the GTI is lighter and has the battery in the boot anyway, a small gain in vehicle weight balance between the axles?
  14. what would you replace? (lupo GTi)

    if you had the choice would you delete power steering, it would save the weight of the power steering pump that hangs out front of the axle
  15. Lupo TDI Sport

    Main dealer says no, stopped making them in 2016 no stock listed either
  16. Lupo TDI Sport

    Happy new year everyone, not so happy for me though as my little cars have given me nowt but grief over the last few weeks, Arosa tdi won't start, and power steering failure on my Lupo tdi. With the latter it's not the rack which is good because I have a spare front pipe from a petrol Lupo but not so good is that its different in detail. Anyone got a spare or in the process of breaking, Or is it a main dealer only option or should I take it off and ask Pirtek to knock up a repair. The leak is where the metal pipe first bends at the nearside front of the car, I suppose its the bit most exposed to salt corrosion
  17. Declaring coilovers

    Hi Dan, can you confirm that in many instances Insurance companies try it on with these blanket disclaimers and whats needed is persistence and the help of a good broker
  18. Declaring coilovers

    I think that would fall foul of the unfair contract terms legislation, as CAT C and D cars have been repaired and tested, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unfair_Contract_Terms_Act_1977
  19. Declaring coilovers

    when making statements to Insurance always say to the best of my knowledge, just in case a previous owner did something they didn't tell you about
  20. non starter, Arosa TDI

    I've got a lead but my laptop is us so can't do it myself at the moment
  21. non starter, Arosa TDI

    My auto electrician is on holiday so I can't get the magic link till he gets back but I know its not battery or glow plugs as I've changed the latter to no effect. What's worse it wont go on the jump leads either whereas it did last Thursday, pi55ed off as I'll have to use my 4x4 and it drinks petrol
  22. Got to agree, I've spent days/weeks travelling from South Wales to Newcastle and the M6 would be my choice every time unless you want to try the splendid A68 and travel through the Borders, depart the A1 just after Darlington, its a great road but best driven in the summer
  23. non starter, Arosa TDI

    It's not the battery, which is disappointing, swapped over the battery from my Lupo TDI and it still won't start whereas the replaced battery started the Lupo immediately, as the glow plugs light is flashing I'll look at them next I think
  24. non starter, Arosa TDI

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

    battery fully charged in less than 2 hours and is holding its charge, so not the battery...any ideas, anyone
