    HELP! SDI power steering pipes burst.

    I'll swap the pipe off the red tdi for now and then see about repairing the leaky one. petrol ones are different?

    Reverse gear earth issue?

    You need a multimeter to test continuity and volts. I'd start at the reversing switch and wiring on the gearbox and check if your reversing lights work. If that is all good then take gearstick surround / ash tray out and make sure nothing shorting out in there when in / out reverse gear.

    Wide body?

    I think the square type at the swage line would be the way to go.

    HELP! SDI power steering pipes burst.

    Bottoms, mine is leaking on the TDI and they's very very rusty on the 1.4S as well. Pirtek in Swansea, but contacting someone else who seems to do very cheap hydraulic stuff. Will update when i hear back from them.
  5. Break it mate you will make more than you are asking by a long shot, cage and wheels are worth more than £800.

    New member after some help!

    Check clutch cable adjustment (needs some free play) and also try starting it in gear with clutch pedal down and with nothing in the way in case it moves when started. Does the pedal feel normal or stiff or slack?

    Hi, this is New noob from S.Korea

    White GTI, me wants.....👍 Try some of the online parts catalogues for part numbers: https://nemigaparts.com/cat_spares/etka/volkswagen/lu/231/ https://volkswagen.7zap.com/en/rdw/lupo++lupo+3l+tdi/lu/

    very true, life gets in the way. I can see now why people buy an immaculate low mileage car and then mod / convert that it ends up saving massive amounts of time and money.

    Not many cheap ones here.... Looks like the chap has reneged on verbal agreement and sold it elsewhere, not surprising as it was such a bargain, so i am back to square one. No rush, I'll give the lupo a proper look over and if it is up to it MOT it and drive it for a bit and get on with the TDIs. Decisions can be made then but one of them has to go, the sensible choice would be to break my black one as it is tatty but i bought it with the intention of keeping it very long term, so common sense may have to win out there. I really need to shift some tat before buying more in as well....

    Thanks rich but i shall pass. After some gti, tdi, sport hubs and brakes etc though for it. What reads the marelli ecu in these? MPPS v13 clone i have knows what it is via ecu info but doesnt list the right model and i dont want to just try and dump it on something that look close and lock the ecu up if it goes wrong. So i abandoned that for now. Are there any other hub, upright combos that can be used to get bigger brakes beyond 280mm?

    Oil light question

    Pretty sure that's normal on these, it will be flashing if there's an oil problem while running, might even be a buzzer warning as well.
  15. Auction? If you arent in a rush to move it and can deliver it to south wales I'd be interested.
