    Gearbox removal

    Noticed that my gearbox has been slowly dripping since I bought my lupo. As I’m wanting it to be as flawless as possible for when I start to drive I want to replace whatever seal it is that’s causing the leak so looks like I have to pull the box. Wondered if anyone had any tips as I’ve never done anything as involved before. Car is a 1.0 AUC if that helps. Cheers

    Gearbox removal

    Turns out that nearly two years ago when I bought the car the little round black thing in the ash tray was a replacement genuine Vag selector shaft seal, could be a free repair👍🏻

    Gearbox removal

    Ahh cheers pal that saves me a lot of headache, it looks like it is coming from there so will probably just keep topping it up👍🏻

    Subframe bolts

    Doing a complete subframe overhaul which includes replacing all the bolts, only part number I can't find is for the 2 front main subframe bolts. Anyone happen to know the part number for them? Cheers

    Can anyone tell me if I need to drop the subframe to remove the steering rack? Cheers

    Steering rack

    Yeah the first bolts I tried to loosen we’re the 4 subframe ones and thankfully they all loosened instead of just spinning

    Steering rack

    Was thinking of jet washing it then wire brushing any surface rust then stone chipping it, waxoyl the inside of it and maybe the outside. Also thinking of putting a kind of skid plate or undertray on it too

    Steering rack

    Yeah it’s on he drivers side unfortunately, to be fair mate I wanted to refurb my sundframe anyway so might as well do it now or i’ll never get round to it

    Steering rack

    I spontaneously decided that maybe restoring my subframe would be a good idea so started off by seeing if all the bolts would loosen, turns out that one wouldn’t

    Steering rack

    Nah mate unfortunately a bolt that holds the rack to the subframe has snapped so I need to get access to the top of the rack to weld a bolt to what’s left of the old one to stand a chance of getting it out. Thanks anyway

    HELP! Tracking is screwed

    Hi all. After removing my front struts to inspect the condition of the top hats and such like, i refitted them and to save time aligning I put them in at the maximum amount of camber. Only problem is the passenger side has a tonne of toe in after doing this. Can anyone help and tell me what I need to do to get it back to how it was? Cheers

    HELP! Tracking is screwed

    I know mate, mine never seems to be that accurate though. Had a few cases where something’s clearly on the piss but my phone says it’s level.

    HELP! Tracking is screwed

    So basically try and remove all the camber and see what’s its like at that point?

    HELP! Tracking is screwed

    Cheers for the help mate. Only problem I have is that I don’t really see why I have to mess with the ball joints when all I’ve done in the first place is taken the strut out and not touched anything else? Cheers

    Bluetooth adaptors

    After having no luck with an auxilary adaptor i bought off amazon for my beta head unit, ive been on the lookout for other solutions, and if they work properly i think a bluetooth adaptor would suit my needs. Has anyone had any experience with these? Do they work? Is the audio quality good? Thanks in advance for your replies
