  1. Having an issue with the stereo not powering on at all. Tried 2 different stereos, neither work in the GTI but both do in the polo 6n2. Safe to say the stereos are good. Here is a pic of the stereo wires. (unsure what the purple and black wires are, but have no voltage at any stage) I have recorded the voltage of the black plug as I think the brown plug is just for the speakers? I have checked fuses 20 and 46 and and seem good. These voltages are as if you are looking at the black plug straight on. Any thoughts?
  2. Thinking about breaking my 1.0 VW Lupo as it hasn't been driven in over a year now as i have a new car and a van. The body is work is really rough and i should of used a different shell to modify as it has dents all over and was my 1st car but if someone is interested in the Suspension which is Air Lift Performance digital V2 Setup with 5gallon tank, Viair compressor, Digital controller and 4 Air Complete Air Bags. I'd be willing to sell the kit for £1000 its still on the car currently only used for a year of driving (9000 miles) so can send videos of it all working serious buyers only before i remove it deposit to be paid. if someone would like to purchase the car as a whole id sell it for £1750 has Sparco R100 bucket seats and rails, Pressed plates and 7x13 bullet steels on the front and 8x13 on the rear (Need Refurb) Fronts need 2 new tyres can give set of original steelies with good as new tyres too.

  4. Hello everybody! I've been posting my updates in the 'New Members' section but as I've done a little bit to her now, thought I'd put it up here. Nothing major will happen with the car (I don't think), but I'd like to slowly improve her and show others what can be done on a fairly tight/resonable budget. Anyway here's the story so far..... After driving my mums car for 10 months and saving up, I've finally been able to afford my own car! Being a long time lurker within this forum looking at various topics and advice from other users, I decided to buy a Lupo! I bought it in May with 62,000 miles on the clock with service history to back it up and it's only done 10,000 miles in the last 10 years! To date, I've covered about 1,500 miles including a trip to Goodwood for Players! It has great character and I love the quirky features such as the dials and pop up front seats! Mods wise I plan on lowering it at some stage and probably change the wheels for something nice and subtle with a bit of dish! So here she is when I got her...... 1st thing I was to change the cambelt just in case and also put a new seal around the gearbox as it was leaking oil A couple of months after, I let my mum drive the car for the 1st time, which resulted in a small fire and new clutch Safe to say she won't be driving it for a while! After that I saved up for some G60 steels which had come off a MK2 Golf which just needed a little cleaning. It's clear on this pic that she needs to be a bit lower! I also made some Lego dustcaps which I'm quite proud of! Then the exhaust middle box completly corroded so it sounded like a complete aninmal (until you saw it)! That dented the savings for the coilies, so I had to wait a bit more! Finally got the suspension bought a couple of weeks ago courtesy of Richard at Venom Motorsport. I read the pros and cons on here for the arguements between lowering springs/coilovers and also budget coilies/mid-range coilies, and in the end decided for a set of FK AK Street coilovers. Got booked in at a local garage for the use of the ramp and help me out a bit, until.... my alternator broke So the booking that was for the suspension was instead used for fixing the car, again. Here's the new one in.. However yesterday I finally got round to fitting the coilies (at last) and thanks to a fantasic guide on here how to fit them, it was fairly straight forward! Fronts are straight forward - take the old off and put the new ones back in the same order, but the rears were a little tricky to get to! This is the hard-to-get-to bit! It's just getting the tracking done and I'll get to see her after work today! Safe to say I can't wait and I'll put the pics up here! Future plans? I'm thinking about an iduction kit (just for the noise) and possibly a rain catcher exhaust I hope you like my thread

    1.4 Sport exhaust options?

    I've just purchased a Lupo Sport 1.4 and I'm looking to do a back box delete, and hopefully add a race tube in the near future. Ideally, a sportex system is in my price range and I like the sound of those, however I don't know which ones will fit my SPORT model? Also if anyone has any links to a race tube or mid pipe for it please link! Cheers

    VW CD player

    Bit of a daft question here, but the VW CD player that' in my car has a single CD slot on the face, but also has CD Changer option on it and for the life of my I can' work the changer. The manual doesn't help, so can anybody help me on how the CD Changer works.
  9. So some time I start my car and its perfectly fine, idols fine and revs fine, does have any rev hang at all then sometimes I start it and the revs just keep climbing till near 2k rpm and take ages to come back down to earth. Also sometimes it only starts happening after long drives then other days after doing the same drive it dosent happen. Would this be down to vaccum lines? I'm pretty certain I've no vaccum leaks but I'm looking for some answers or suggestions ?

    Owners manual needed

    Hi people, I'm very new here so please let me know if I'm posting in the wrong place! I am wondering if anyone has a pdf of the lupo's owners manual, the one you'd find in the glovebox (or glove slot in the lupo's case!) I will be getting a lupo soon (2000 1.4 16V S) but I'm the kinda guy that wants to know everything possible and how everything works on a car before he owns it ?. If anyone has anything they might think is useful please let me know. Thank you very much in advance
  12. Driving home from work last night through countryside, and would occasionally hear a kinda "whoo" sound. Thought it was an owl in the countryside, but it happened today on the way there. Anyone have any idea what this could be? It also sounds sorta electronic, especially as it fades out.

    HELP DOOR STUCK

    Last night I went to close my driver side door and it wouldn’t budge at all, the door has always been heavy but recently there has been a crunching noise when it closes (I just assumed because the car is old and the doors are heavy) then when I went to close it last night there was no movement all and I’ve head to leave the die wide open
  17. 54 plate Lupo 1.4 When I slow down and press the clutch in, the engine does the slowing down sound and then does these little brr brr sounds, which sounds like it is revving up, but when I look at the rev counter it dips when it brrs. Is this normal or what could be causing this?

    Hello!

    I just picked up my first VW Lupo. I'm going to use it as a bit of a project, as it needs some love and attention thanks to the previous owner treating it like a bin!!! Anyway, it seems to drive fine but bodywork has some touches rust and chopped paint. Biggest pain is the roof gutter metal trim has popped up at the front of the car and I can't seem to push it back in! I've stuck it down with gaffa tape for now!!!! Can I slide it out and refit. There is some of the dreaded rust but it looks like it had work done previous (watchdog!!!) and I wanted to take them out and clean up and grease. Any advice would be welcome!! I'm a newbie at this, so sorry if I'm sounding clueless!!!
  19. So in the tradition of a newbie, I'm here for help please! This is my 2nd Lupo SDi, the first had done over 250k so I know they should go on forever, which is making this problem even more frustrating! So 1.7 SDi went to start one morning a few weeks ago and it turned over but immediately cut out with a whiny/grindy noise. And has done the same thing every time I've tried to start it since. There is plenty of diesel in it so it isn't fuel starvation. Battery is turning it over. I'm all out of ideas, any suggestions? Could pop it in the garage as a last resort, but I wanted to pick your brains first...any ideas?
  20. Anyone got any ideas why my Lupo GTi doesn't always start when the engine is warm? I've taken this to a couple of garages now, but non of them have even been able to replicate the fault, let alone fix it! An example I give them is I leave my house, and go to the petrol station (10 minute drive) ignition off, key out, leave it a couple of minutes while I fill up, go to start it again then it wont start (see attached video and try to ignore the beeping). After leaving the ignition off for 5-10 minutes then try and start the car, it'll work. The check engine light is on, the fault is apparently the engine temp sensor. However this has been replaced with an OEM part and all wiring has been check with nothing unusual to show. Any suggestions would be appreciated! 20180206_171553.mp4

Lupo 1.4S, A/C, '55 plate.......16,900mls, yes 16,900mls....Dealer serviced all it's life, 2 owners father and son, one 25mm x 4mm scuff on a bumber corner and a 20mm craze in paint of rear bumper top, other than that, unmarked inside and out.

  24. Hi guys, I just turned 17 and got myself a Lupo 1.4 16V, have been driving it on a provisional until I pass my test, already done some work to it since it had been left for a couple of years in a garage. However I've noticed that my gas pedal sits at about half the height of my brake/clutch pedals, if I put my foot under it and lift the pedal it will freely lift to the same height as the others, but as soon as I let go it drops back down to halfway. I was thinking it is the throttle cable? Been told that the throttle is electric though so I'm not too sure how to go about it, any suggestions? Cheers, Chris

    Hello, Looking for a lupo 1.4tdi as a commuter. Only seen 1 on auto trader but it's in Scotland, so a little too far; (393 miles), to not know if it's any good. Live near Banbury but happy to travel 100+ miles for the right car. If the car has been maintained with FSH, i would be happy to buy one with around 150k miles on. Preferably no rust but I know these cars are getting on a bit. Thanks for looking.
