  2. Two types of B12 ProKit sold by Bilstein for Lupo GTI?

    They should put that on the labels of cable ties... "There's nothing a cable tie can't solve".
  3. Bilstein Lowering Suspension Lupo GTi

    Put any word you like in front of "off"!
  4. Bilstein Lowering Suspension Lupo GTi

    Hmmmmm... Will pass it on to Mrs Waddle and see what she thinks (as it's her Lupo).
  5. Rear beam replacement

    Good point, well made, ours is drum rears. Being a Victorian design, it's very simple...
  6. Bilstein Lowering Suspension Lupo GTi

    Doesn't everyone find the most inappropriate back issue of Razzle, shred it, and use that as protection for packing? No? Just me? Anyhow. Dumb question of the year, will this fit a 1.0? I've just got the back end stripped and ready for new bits I'm yet to buy...
  7. Rear beam replacement

    I'm slowly getting this done on ours - if you have the facility to make brake pipes (or indeed, have a good local motor factors that will do them for you), it's easy to just let the brake pipes snap, then get a six sided socket on the remains of the fitting to remove it from the flexi. Then knock up a couple of new pipes and Bob's your mum's brother.
  8. Indicator stalk question

    Getting the airbag unit free is much easier once you've actually seen how the clips work. Unfortunately you can't see it until you've got it off...
  9. Finally some pics of our Lulu...

    Took her out one Sunday morning for some photos (and breakfast, naturlich!) lulu1-2 by Pe Te, on Flickr lulu2-2 by Pe Te, on Flickr lulu3-2 by Pe Te, on Flickr And on holiday for Halloween... lulu4 by Pe Te, on Flickr ...now off the road for some pretty serious rebuilding work. Every house should have an axle in the dining room...
  10. Gearbox bolt patterns

    Are gearbox bolt patterns the same across the board? Specifically, will a 1.0 box fit on a 1.4 engine? I have some silly cheap ideas for ours and this would be helpful...
  11. Lupo Gti 6 speed offside drive shaft

    Any man's shed should be twice the floorplan of his house.
  12. Gearbox bolt patterns

    Appearing on a WRC stage near you, a soft blue Lupo... (In my mind...)
  13. Gearbox bolt patterns

    Just what I wanted to hear - ta muchly!
  14. Black - VW Lupo S - For Sale or Breaking

    Possibly of interest, but wont be for a couple of weeks.
  15. Lupo GTI Instrument sounder

    Check the door switch first - marginally easier to change if faulty...
  16. Lupo GTI Boot Tools

    Hammer is all you need, shirley?
  17. Cherry’s Ratty Lupo

    I'd say Lupos aren't old enough to rat... Then I realise how long it is since they were launched. As you were.
  18. Good Evening

    Welcome! I too am intending on writing a couple of useful bits for here, especially with PBs demise - sort of oays back for the guides I've used already!
  19. Nearside indicator's not working ?

    Possibly a faulty flasher relay (built into the hazard switch IIRC), possibly a connection breaking up in the column stalk (which is a minor pain in the backside to change), but first check is the fuses. Can't remember off the top of my head which one does NS indicators, but the diagram inside the cabin fusebox will show it. Even if it looks OK, swap it for a new one, we had one that hadnt fully blown and had similar symptoms.
  20. Evening all

    New joinee from the NE England... probably going to be shouting up for parts, advice, and contributions to my swear jar in the near future when the Lupo we have in the household starts getting a full rebuild over winter...
  21. Gearbox oil change.

    Another bloody stupid piece of design, ready to be rounded off... Whats wrong with a big allen head like our Lupo has?
  22. Evening all

    Send the kids to work for you. Duh. (I'm assuming you work as a chimney sweep...) No worries - I'm sure a NE mini meet can happen at some point, we have a kettle and know how to use it!
  23. This is the sort of thing I would consider for our road rally car... Then I realise that any weight savings are pretty much made redundant by the fact MrsHW has to carry 17 stone of me as a navigator... Good luck with the sale!
  24. Evening all

    Our meeting point is about half a mile from a Subway... Are you chaps coming down?
  25. Vw Lupo Press Cars

    Love this thread, huge amount of effort going in!
