  1. 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!!!

  3. Hi there! Just got my first Lupo (1.4, 16v, black, open air) a couple of months back, and I love it to pieces. Aside from wanting to find other lupo owners that love their cars as much as I do, I'm also looking for some advice. The open air roof leaks something chronic, and even though I've pulled the whole thing out and stuck sealant under the roof panel, it's still letting water in Can anybody either - 1.) Give me advice on how you've DIY fixed this yourself? 2.) Direct me to someone currently breaking an open air/selling a secondhand roof OR 3.) have an idea of any businesses that might be able to redo the roof? Preferably at a non extortionate price, being a student doesn't allow much in terms of funds Hope this is all allowed! Thanks in advance for any help <3

  6. LUPO Error

  7. Lupo 4x100 to 5x108 adapters?

    New member here, hiiiiii. Basically, I've been doing huge amounts of research and found the perfect set of wheels in terms of offset, look, width, etc., but they're Volvo, 5x108 jobbies. I've been told that it'd be impossible to get adaptors to make it happen from a 4x100. 1 ) is that right? Should I let the dream die? 2 ) could I not get the adapters made? Willing to pay a fair amount but obviously nothing ludicrous. Open to suggestions. 3 ) is there any other way I can make them fit? Please help! Thanks

  11. Sunroof problems!!

    Hi I have just bought a Lupo E 2002 with the sunroof that rolls all the way back. I discovered the other day I have water seeping through soaking the whole of the back of the top of the roof! Can anyone suggest ways of fixing it or what the course of this could be. Is it just the drainage pipes need cleaning out or do I need a whole new seal? If so can anyone recommend me any brands or places to buy? many thanks

  18. Hello, I have a 2003 VW LUPO and just fitted a subwoofer to it. Fitted the sub perfectly without a problem, went to turn the ignition and there is no electrical power to the car whatsoever. I have measured the Voltage on the battery and it is 12.5v which is almost perfect. Also checked the earth point which the sub was wired to. Completely disconnected all power to the sub and still have nothing. Gone through and checked all fuses (ones on top of the battery and below steering wheel). And yes I have connected everything to the battery. Feel completely lost with this. Might anybody has any ideas at all please don't hesitate to contact me. Feel free to text as well 07713119095

  22. First of all hello to everyone, I am new to this and will probably annoy most of you as I am sure this has been covered before. I I am in the middle of an engine swap, I have a 1.4s (75hp) and am looking to swap for what I believe to be a (100hp) 1.4 sport engine, this is out of my friends car and was a second engine to him so don't know much about it... Went to fit it yesterday to get it all hooked up (on my origional ecu) didn't fire no spark, then went to switch his ecu to find out it is totally different, so would I be able to just switch out the engine loom of his car (100hp engine) if so how do I go about doing this? Where does the loom go to? Thanks in advance Kyle

  25. Hi, The battery light keeps flashing on the dashboard of my 1.0l SEAT Arosa and then the battery runs dead after a few days, sometimes less than a few days if driving just in the day with no lights on. I am unsure on why it is doing it, as I have changed the alternator and bought a new battery. I have had a mechanic and an auto electrician look at it and they are clueless. Any ideas? Thank you!
