  1. Gearbox oil change.

    Good Morning all. Just a quick one. Where is the gearbox drain plug and filler plug located on a 2006 1.2l fox Cheers Kie
  2. hey guys, I need some help regarding my VW Lupo 3L from 2004. Car's got around 380k km, 1 owner before but didn't care of it properly. Since I have it it drove nice but lately it started messing up on me really bad. I've done some extensive reading on this forum regarding some of the problems and fixes common to the 3L. Briefly, my problem is - if I drive for more than 10-15 minutes in the upper gears (normal drive on highway, 5th gear) when I stop the car fails to change to lower gears. Sometime it gets stuck in 5th or 4th. I stop the car everything goes back to normal. But it does this almost every time. Tried driving on automatic but does the same. To note - hydraulic pump runs almost all the time. Ordered an accumulator will change this Thursday. Under the pump there is some sludge, but quite old looking. So I'm assuming that once either overvflowed or leaked. I wanted to check the oil level but the green cap from the accumulator has written on it 'do not open'. so.. ok how do I check it then? But could my problem be because of the pressure accumulator or more than that? Since pump is running all the time I assume that at some point it can't keep up with the pressure loss from the accumulator so it just can't change gears anymore? Could there be a pump problem, or leak somewhere? No lights showing up in the dashboard. Previous problems fixed - hose from intercool to turbocharger changed (common Lupo problem), alternator with pulley and belt. My other question is - the MPG is quite poor, I get 6.4 l/100 in the dash, which is approx 45 mpg. That is quite poor I would assume from such a car. It drives well really, I can go 170 km/h no problem (although I normally don't). Any ideas to this poor fuel economy? My last question to Lupo owners - is it normal for a Lupo to not have assisted steering and central locking? mine does not have neither.. and it's a 2004 lupo what?! I had older Puntos which had both thanks for the help guys. Cheers Andrei
  3. WANTED - SDi gearbox

    My SDi's gearbox has let go in the usual fashion and so I'm searching for a replacement. Does anyone have one for sale? Thank-you.
  4. Hi guys. I have had an 2001 Arosa 1.4 16V sport since 2011 and the speedo has died, it was erratic for a time and then completely died. I have checked the speedo drive gear which goes inside the gearbox and the spindle is rotating in an erratic fashion, it turns and stops for a second etc, if I put my finger on the exposed top I can stop it from rotating completely with a tiny bit of pressure, you can feel it bite sligtly and then slip. This was a recon gearbox back in early 2013. I have removed the drive gear, see attached for what it looks like (no damage that I can see) although there is very slight scoring on the end as you can see. I'm guessing the nylon gear on the final drive ring gear has worn away? How much of a ball ache is it to split the box on these and is it worth it? Thanks for any help.

  6. Vw Lupo 1.4 TDI Gearbox

    Hi guys, I'm new here. Wanted to ask if I can do a bolt on gearbox change from any 1.9TDI (doesn't matter if it's 5 or 6-speed)? Also, I had a remap and it's running about 96bhp and 280Nm. Are a bigger turbo, injectors and another remap going to get me to about 150? Thank you

  8. 5th gear failure

    I have a 1.0 02 lupo. gear 1 to 4 are fine. If I go into 5th gear under load there is no drive connection and it makes a sound like a tin can full of gravel. Any idea would be appreciated.
  9. 1.0 lupo gear linkage issues

    Hi I've recently bought a 1 litre 02 plate lupo and it had a bust gearbox , I've replaced the clutch and fitted a recon box it's all hooked up but I can't select any gears the gear stick doesn't feel connected, anybody have any ideas as how to fix it?
  10. So I've had my Lupo 1.0 for a while now but it suddenly would not engage in reverse, the linkage is sitting in the reverse position but when I take my foot off the clutch the car does not move at all. The gearbox doesn't even crunch if I try to put it into reverse without the clutch. Could someone help as I need the car sorted!!!
  11. Which Lupo or...??

    Hi All, I've been looking for another smaller VW and came across the Lupo! There are two for sale in my area, a 2000 1.4 16v S that has 89k miles with this done on the car: VW Lupo 3 doors, 4 seats in good bodywork and interior Model 75 HP (55Kw) 5 fiscal CV (very good engine 4 cylinders and 16 valves).. Technical control OK 4 new tires bills in 2015: Kit distribution and pump water complete clutch Thermostat 2016: complete exhaust system revision (oil and filters) made in all € 2,600 maintenance bills; for sale need bigger. or a 2001 TDI with 80k miles with this done: Sells Volkswagen Lupo TDI 75 hp. Car in good condition. Options: - Power steering - Air conditioning - Power windows . Revision made . CT ok . Price negotiable Please feel free to contact me for more information. My concern is the gearbox/pedalbox failures that I've been reading about! Are all Lupo's susceptible to potential gearbox/pedalbox failure? Both are around the same price = 2,200 euros....the 1.4 is more appalling in that a lot of work has been done on the car and both cars look great...in the pic's. I have yet to see them in person... Any suggestions or help especially with the gearbox/pedalbox issues??? Thanks Cya
  12. Gearbox Ratios - Worksheet

    Right guys. I've made up a spreadsheet within Excel that'll allow you to see the speed output in MPH at a given rev amount in any gear. I'd upload it to this but I honestly haven't a clue how! All I need is the ratios for the GTi 5 speed Box then it'll have both of the GTi boxes on it. I'm also inputting the lower down gear boxes in, so the 1.0,1.4, 1.4Sport, 1.4 tdi, 1.7SDi. If anyone has a copy of the gear and final drive ratios then that would be super if you could send them over! Many thanks! Matt
  13. hi guys, currently my box is DXQ. can i fit one of the other boxes to my lupo SDI such as the DED, ETF or FFV? thank you!

  15. Broken Gearbox?

    Hey, I've got a 1.7 sdi Diesel lupo 2000 plate. Recently the reverse gear just refuses to work, all the other gears are perfectly fine, I can pop the reverse into gear and it'll shift back a few inches then either jump out or make a horrible crunching noise, I've taken it to a mechanic and by force he can reverse it back normally but the car sounds terrible because you can hear it wanting to push the reverse gear out. My mechanic as quoted me £1500 for a new gearbox! Or I have to find a second hand one, all in all inc labour I'm looking at around £800 and there's no guarantee the gearbox will work as its second hand... i went to a local mechanic and told them my problem and they said it sounds like a broken reverse linkage? Never heard of something like that but inc labour it's £150..if that's the case. I'm going to book my car in but I'm worried they'll cause more issues then I have, love my lupo but it's a 2000 plate and I don't really want to spend almost 2k on a gearbox. does it sound broken? Or a link breakage? Am I being ripped off? Sorry for such the long post but it's becoming impossible to drive the car without reversing, I have to roll out of my drive -__-. Any advice would be great! thanks!

  19. Hi there, There is a VW Lupo with an automatic (electronic) transmission (like this on the site 22). The transmission was repaired, & there are 6 pieces of wires & there are 6 connectors on the gearbox. Here i uploaded a picture about this. The wires are: the nr. 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 & 9. My question is, how can i identify, what wire belongs to what connector on the gearbox? I find this info nowhere in the service manuals. The wire nr. 4 & 5 are blue & red. What colour is the upper & what is the lower? & how can i identify the wires nr. 6,7,8,9 & for what connector belongs these on the gearbox? Thanks for the help, best regards!
  20. Arosa Gearstick stiff

    My gear stick is stiff but still goes into gears ok. Tried to lube the joints and the cable but still no better. Clutch feels fine and it drives well. Are all Arosa's like this? are they all stiff as maybe it's because its a shorty shifter, I dunno.
  21. 2 Lupo Gti Gearboxes

    Hello I have 2 lupo Gti gearboxes for sale: 5 Speed (mileage unknown), was sold to me working but I never fitted it so I can’t guarantee this. £70 6 speed (2002 – 99800 miles), gear change was smooth but it did start to make a noise when in 2nd/3rd gear. The garage believed it might be a differential issue, so would need reconditioning. £100 The collection is in Banbury Oxfordshire, if you would like to arrange a courier that’s up to you but I imagine that it will be very expensive due to weight. If you would like both I will do them for £150
  22. Looking for a Lupo GTI gearbox. Preferably 6speed, but would consider a 5 Wanting one ready to fit with not too high mileage and smooth changes. Cheers
  23. Hi all, Just bought a project lupo. Needs a new gearbox as this ones only got 3rd gear😞. Wondering if there's any recommended alternative boxes to use before I start looking about. Mike
  24. Hi everyone, i have been offered a 5 speed lupo GTI for a good price and the only problem is the 5 speed gearbox has a whine in 3rd. i have been looking at reconditioned gearboxes and was wondering if it is possible to put the 6 speed gearbox on? And if so what else would have to be changed such as gear linkages? and will it work with the current ecu? i have searched on the forum for this question and haven't been able to find a definitive answer. i know the 6 speed lupo box will not fit to a 5 speed polo gti but what about the 5 speed lupo gti? thanks in advance matt
  25. Can anyone help? I am trying to remove the gearbox from Lupo SDI 1.7. It was going ok, until I got to the top rear engine brace, Doh! There doesn't appear to be enough 'flex' in the rubber mounts at each end to move the brace off the end of the engine bolt, to allow access to the bolt to remove it. This bolt has two threads, one 18mm A/F and the other 13mm A/F. I have tried to undo the bolt using an open ended spanner (a few degrees at a time using both sides of the open end), but I have realised that because there is not enough room to 'flex' the brace off I may not be able to get the bolt out far enoungh without someone taking the weight of the gearbox, moving it away from the engine as the bolt unscrews face by face. Is this the only way? I have considered removing the rear end of the 'top rear brace' (closest to the gearstick), there is one bolit visible, but is very tricky to get to and if I managed to get the bolt out it looks like the gearchange linkages go through the alloy brace casting. Everything else is ready to go, this is not going well! Has anyone done this before, and can offer any guidance? Gary
