    Wheel arch trims

    Thinking about it they would trap water. I will just remove the rust followed re-paint and leave it at that. Thanks.

    Wheel arch trims

    Ebay is selling Wheel arch trims for all Lupos. Complete set of four for about £60-00. They simply clip onto existing arch trim, no drilling. Has anyone fitted them? My rear arch trims are begging to rust. I shall remove the rust and paint over but was wondering was it worth fitting these trims. They are matt black which happens to be similar to my Lupo colour.
  5. My 2004 Lupo TDi 1.4, Anthracite Grey with 81, 000 miles. Price: £2800 ono. It has a small dent and paint marks, else I would ask £3000. See pictures for dent on the front wing and scuff/paint marks/scratches. Location Shropshire. I have had this great little car from new. It has extras: Sunroof, AirCon, Towbar (fitted by VW), only used occasionally to tow a small trailer for camping. It has a service history, Mot until November this year. Engine: Never had a problem. New cambelt (precaution) fitted last year. It has always been garaged, reversed into - that accounts for the scrapes you see on both wing mirrors.

    Lupo 1.4 TDi anthracite

    The wife is adamant the car has to stay but I'm over 65, tall with back problems and the fiat Qubo is back friendly especially on long journeys even though the Lupo seat is more comfortable. I am surprised to hear it may fetch as much as £3k. Ha - no need to regret not having air con - the wife has never switched hers on

    Lupo 1.4 TDi anthracite

    Hello, My wife has a 2004 anthracite grey 1.4 TDi lupo. She has had it from new. I also have my own car but will have to sell one of our cars. Not being a Lupo expert I was wondering if anyone can tell me roughly what price we may get for her car. It has done about 70,000 miles, fsh, new cambelt fitted, air con and sunroof. Any ideas?
  9. My local garage quoted £100 labour only to replace both front bearings, 2 hours work. If I had the right tools it would have been no way Hosay but as it is and as I don't even have a torque wrench, axle stand, vice or press, socket set...
  10. Without the kit how would you pull the hub and bearing, in one piece, from the housing?
  11. I'm thinking of buying the VidaXl bearing puller kit https://www.vidaxl.co.uk/p/210186/front-wheel-bearing-tool-audi-a1-a2-seat-ibiza-skoda-fabia-vw-fox-polo?gclid=CJKI8OX59cMCFQTJtAodb2sA8g cost £50 to remove the hub and bearing. The Audi a2 front bearing is the same one in my Lupo 1.4 Tdi.
  12. I was also pondering buying a Front wheel hub with bearing already in and doing the job myself but got put off with all the talk suggesting it was not a diy job. Does anyone know if any of the Toll Hire shops rent hub removal tools?. Also any suggestions on what else would be worth renewing when changing the hub? By the way VMS (Bristol) sell Hub and Bearing set for about £80 - manufactured by FAG (Original).
