Lupo 3L TDI

Recommended Posts

Hi boys and girls.

New here 😬

I have a lupo tdi 1.2L 3Lwith a bad gearbox i got in for free. 

Im thinking of changing gearbox but to a ”fully automatic” gearbox. Anyone here knows if there is some gearbox that is bolt on to this one?

Thx for all answers 😬😁

Thank you!

5 th gear dosent work.

but i want it to be fully automatic couse here in sweden they count it as Manuel shift and this car is perfect for my mother and i love lupo but she can only drive automatic cars couse she only has it on her drivings license.

Why would they consider it a manual when it has no clutch pedal? It is fully automatic or semi-automatic, depending on the position of the gear stick. A manual it is NOT!

The 1.2 TDi can be coded in VCDS to take a manual gearbox?

I've only ever seen 3L's converted to manual, never full-automatic...

All 3L's are fully automatic, or semi-automatic!

Exactly.

That's why I said the only conversions I've seen are from an automatic gearbox (standard) to a manual one.

All are originally automated manual, but the conversion to fully manual are relatively straightforward mechanically, as the 3L uses a manual clutch and gearbox.

I'm going to guess that a automatic conversion could be tricky. Finding a torque converter and automatic gearbox bell housing to bolt up to the 3 cylinder TDI engine block are the key. The rest should be relatively easy.

The 1.2 and 1.4 TDI in many ways is a chopped down 1.9TDI. I would start looking there for possible donors for automatic parts.
