    JoeyEunos's SDI Beater.

    Yes, the Lupo looks properly tiny parked on the drive next to it

    The little Lupo is running well after her service. Meanwhile I have become bored again/developed an itchy trigger finger... Today I bought her a new stable mate in the form of a cheap/big/old and incredibly retro Volvo 940 turbo estate. SAM_6328 by SAM_6339 (2) by

    Seat Arosa Sport pedal box

    Weird, I've found them a fair bit cheaper... 5l of Quantum Platinum is circa £12 at TPS but close to £30 at the dealer, '5+ range' battery for the Golf was £55 at TPS but £70ish at VW Also the red Quantum coolant they sell meets G12 and is cheap, unlike the extortionate purple G13 stuff at the stealer Maybe there are regional differences? Either way (And back on topic) I'm pretty sure @Rich offers a drive in-drive out pedal box welding service, depending on where you are it might be worth giving him a nudge

    1.7 SDI gearbox needed

    Yes, G50 seems to be working perfectly well for me too, like you I've replaced the selector seal and keep the box topped up. Do you mean the selector shaft, or the linkage mechanisms?

    More fool you for not making it clear that beer/ weird imported sausage are crucial for a smooth job. Only got yourself to blame.

    Right, no updates here for some time eh? A fortnight ago I gave the Lupo a dose of injector cleaner and an Italian tune up after some rough running. Much better This weekend I rewarded the old girl by providing a full service... Air filter looked pretty grubby after covering 16000 miles over the last 2 years... Gearbox oil top ups... Turns out this step was actually unnecessary, having replaced the selector seal last year the level had stayed toppy tops and also looked bone dry underneath, I've looked at loads of Lupos and they all all seem to glisten with oil on the underside of the box, not mine though How long with the seal hold out? Who knows but it's up to about 5k now without even the smallest of weeps That's it, job jobbed. To celebrate I quaffed a selection of fine ales, ate an imported German sausage thing and a selection of soft cheeses
  7. EGR blanking is a possibility but not at present as all is running well again. @Lupo 1.7 sdi, have you deleted/blanked yours?

    1.7 SDI gearbox needed

    RE gearbox oil, proper VW G50 works quite well too. It's a 75W90 Gl4 synthetic, but actually much thicker than most other oils of the same grade. Bit tricky to get but it is still available.
  9. Thought so... They were described as 'Sports Seats' in the original brochures IIRC, they look like Recaros but aren't I bought a set of these for £30 too, then found a better set (3X3 rear belts) for £20, so I've actually got two sets, one set lives in the loft. Mk4 parts = pretty much rock bottom price at present.
  10. Nothing brightens up my day like some high Res images of a well used bush. Is it bad that I've spotted the background in your candid bush shots is a MK4 Golf 'sport' (Recaro lookalike) seat? *Must try to get out more*
  11. Please report back once testing phase is complete.
  12. ^The magic words that the female contingent of CL have all been secretly waiting to hear you utter... Don't keep us all in suspense...Did it put an end to the knocking? Mine's had a hideous clunk ever since I bought it a few years back (I actually came and spoke to you in person about it when it was in the first week of it's tenure at cassa Eunos IIRC) I've done drop links, rear shocks/boots/bump stops, but in the end learned to live with it given driving an SDI is pure misery irrespective of much clunkorz. Perhaps ARB bushes are to blame for mine, if not maybe rear beam bushes

    SDI power steering pressure pipe

    No need to remove the bumper to change the aux belt, but to change the PAS or the hardlines it's a necessary evil IME. Removing the bumper is pretty much the same sequence as MK4 golf, I'm sure there's a YouTube video of the process, just have at it 😉 It'snot complicated, but it is deffo time consuming compared to other VAG stuff.

    Bumper off I'm afraid, or at least it was when I had to get the PAS pump off.

    Odd Temp Sensor Fault

    The thermostat has failed in the 'open' position (They're designed to fail this way), seen this on a few of mine. Change the thermostat and I'll bet you the problem stops and the car will sit and stay at a steady 90 once up to running temperature
