  1. So geeky but I went through this process myself a while ago. Standard seats weighed about 25 kgs each give or take. Do not know if GTI seats weigh a little less. Sparco seats weigh about 8 kgs. All my seats have now gone! 😁

    Crankposition sensor!?!?!

    Polo AUB from a ebay wreckers. Only issue I am having is getting a receipt from the breakers to match up the engine code to so the DVLA will update the V5. No receipt no update. So fingers crossed Mr breakers issues me a receipt with the engine number on it.

    The mystery of the missing gear

    Ok, guys so I got it sorted and I thought I would share my findings with you. It would appear that all the 3 bolts/adjustments needed a slight tickling until it finally found reverse gear. It is worth noting that bolt 3 needed the most adjustment as this appear to control the lateral throw of the gearstick movement and had the most effect on the reverse gear seating when it was engaged. Thanks, everyone for all your help. Mk2 your diagram was a life saver. More importantly, you all helped me solve the mystery of the missing gear. P.S. All along it was the old grumpy school caretaker in the monster suit! (if you can remember that reference you must be as old as me... 😂 )

    The mystery of the missing gear

    Yes, my gearbox does not look like that. Different linkages completely. I have this one (not my actual one but the same model).

    The mystery of the missing gear

    I think I get what you mean, in terms of the cable carrier and the linkages. If you could explain further that would be great.
  7. After refitting a perfectly working gearbox, i have 5 forward gears but no reverse!?! I looked behind the seat and in my toolbox but still i cant find it! Can anyone think of how reconnecting the linkages would cause me to lose the reverse gear function. P.s If you do find my reverse gear hanging out on a street corner turning tricks for clutch money, please send it home 😂

    Bike carbs and coil packs.

    After replacing the coil pack for a ford ka (circa 1999) and some fiddling it is all working. This is because the bosch VW coil pack needs the voltage to be a stable 12v at startup. This is not achievable since the voltage drops at crank and without the ECU (which takes care of this for you) your pretty much screwed. The Ford coil pack only needs 5-12v to ignite and so was the logical choice. I have drawn up the wiring diagram should this be of help to anyone in the future (see attached). I will update this when i have accessories wired in, but for now, this is all you need to get the car up and running. Nodiz VW Lupo Basic Wiring Diagram v1.0.pdf

    Vw Lupo 1.4 16v 75bhp performance gains

    Haa Haa. Wouldnt be me would it 😂. But seriously, it has been a money pit and more than likely a complete waste of money. I just keep repeating my mantra "This is worth it, This is worth it", but even if it is a complete load of **** i have to live with the desisions i have made a few years ago. In hinesight i would have never started it, instead putting the money into a moneybox and then buying a skyline R32......and then spent money ****ing that up too! 😂 To anyone thinking of entering down the rabbithole, enter with caution and with a very full wallet. If not you will have spent the kids inheritance and be left with a car that doesnt move. Your only option then it to sell it as a unfinished project to a chav with a sideways baseball cap for a complete loss. It is a lose-lose situation. Know that you want to achieve, research, plan, research some more!. Set a budget and stick to it and you wont end up like me.
