  1. Both are identical to look at so either should work really
  2. Doesn't list as LHD or RHD, can't see there being any difference to be honest!
  3. Brake light switch is still part number 7L6 945 511
  4. Stef's laser blue GTI

    Lovely Lupo! Only thing that bugs me is those number plate caps! White caps on the front in the black letters and yellow in the middle of the rear letters! And I like the red trim on the grille too, have that on mine, just hoping it doesn't fade like the first one I fitted.....
  5. Ha, the place or the phone kit?
  6. Its similar to a Parrot phone kit.... Hopefully this pdf will have loaded up! BURY9068.pdf
  7. LupoGTi Buying Guide on EVO

    The magazine was published last November if I remember correctly, I had a bit of input to it and the section 'I bought one' are what I said! Was also happy to be labelled as a 'Lupo Guru' in the mag too! Oh and guess where all the parts prices came from as well?
  8. Bought a New Lupo

    Very nice! They were 5 speed til around 2001, I've checked and its definitely a 6 speed
  9. Odd Temp Sensor Fault

    Thinking about it, that makes sense, though I'm glad its stuck open rather than closed as my 6N polo did!
  10. Odd Temp Sensor Fault

    I'll give that a try, thanks!
  11. Odd Temp Sensor Fault

    No faults with the sensor. I used the Offboard diagnostics stuff we have here at work (main VW dealership) and didn't have any faults with the sensor. I asked the techs here what their thoughts were, and they suggested the sensor, which is what I thought too. Tested it Saturday up to temperature, both pipes got hot so thermostat is opening, and the fan came on, sensor showed 90 degrees without driving it. Soon as I drove it home, temp gauge dropped to between 70 & 90. Like I said, the car runs fine, so I must have a massively efficient radiator!
  12. Lupo need help please.

    Have you had a fault code scan, see what comes up? Know anyone with VCDS? Check for codes first as could be something trivial, and go from there.
  13. 03 GTI, temp sensor has no faults stored, but the gauge on the dash shows the temperature in between 70 and 90, its always sat on 90 or just a smidge below. I changed the temp sensor at the weekend, still does the same. Car runs fine, heater gets hot, thermostat opens as both pipes get hot, fan cuts in when its supposed to, coolant all fine too and up to VW spec. Any ideas? TIA
  14. Lupo 1.0 unknown engine bracket?

    Does the bracket have any part numbers on it?
  15. Have you tried double-pressing the unlock button on the fob? Mine is set so that it only opens the drivers door on one press, but another press within 3 seconds unlocks the rest of the car.
