    1.4 Lupo SE
  1. Could this also be why the indicator stork doesn't always return when turning right?
  2. Might sound like a right idiot but what's the clock spring? How difficult is it to rectify?
  3. May have lied abit........ I have a leather dimpled steering wheel.... which i believe is a standard wheel for a Sport not an SE. I've read the fault and it says something about variable resistance?
  4. Right..... those wires are dead.... I chased them back and they've been chopped at the other end too and a new throttle body connection wired in. I'm not sure I have the correct throttle body on my car someone please correct me of my thought process is wrong. In the included picture the bits I've coloured in blue are the mounts for the unit..... the bits in red I assume are locating holes for the locating pins that the gaskets & throttle body sit on? Mine don't line up? At all? Would a 1.6 throttle body fit? Would this have any benefit? Or a sport one rather than an SE? Or am I way off? Thanks in advance
  5. Don't suppose you have a wiring diagram?
  6. So I'm out on the drive way looking to clean the throttle body..... which doesn't look to bad tbh and I notice this.......... Is it supposed to look like that? It's the electrical connection for the throttle body if the picture is bad?
  7. Sweet thanks again..... gonna be my job for weekend.... I'll keep you updated.
  8. Cool cheers Rich..... I've just remembered ive got the old one the lad took off.... are they serviceable? I could clean the spare up n service then swap units if poss? Is there anyway of doing the basics settings without vcds/ vagcom?
  9. So it's looking like I need a new throttle assembly? How likely is it that taking it off and cleaning it is gonna make much difference? Would this throw up the manifold pressure too or should I look at replacing that sensor too? Massive thanks for your help up to now. This is my 1st VW.... Vauxhall, Ford or Scooby I pretty much now what causes what.
  10. Thanks I'll pick up a new one and try that. Not sure if this will help but just been out and got these codes
  11. 1.4 SE 16v. Doesn't do it all the time, when it's running good it pulls really well. On inspection all ignition components look well... no damage to leads etc. It's had the throttle body changed by previous owner and had the pedal box done too apparently.
  12. Does anyone know why my car won't rev? Seems worse now we have warm weather? Keeps throwing up throttle actuator fault with ecu reader..... seems to pop up when I let off to coast to a junction? Could this be an idle air control Valve issue? I'm new to VW ant help advice would be much appreciated.
  13. Hoping someone can help me, my front grill rattles as the clips are missing, passenger side underneath the headlamp where it meets the wing, anyone know where I can get some new ones as it's driving me mental....... 1.4 Lupo SE if that helps.
  14. Yes standard wheel
  15. Hi Guy's, Just bought my 1st Lupo, and 1st VW, my car is a 52plate, black 1.4 SE. It's been lowered on coilovers, and can honestly say it's jumped straight into the top 3 of fun cars to drive. Problem is have is the airbag light is on constantly, is there anywhere I should be checking 1st before taking it for diagnostics to find the problem. I'm a fairly confident diy mechanic and don't mind getting my hands dirty, any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
