  2. Ah well ill take them back and have to see what the local car parts place has got in style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" /> Why so bloody many different variants?! sure vauxhall never did have so many as volkswagen! style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":D" border="0" alt="biggrin.gif" /> EDIT Just been on NGK`s website and I cant find the NGK2397 although the parts finder says I need part number PZFR5D-11 (stock code 7968) for the AUC and ALD engines

  6. Just came back from halfords and bought these said on the sheet its for ALL engine codes are these the right ones? my engine code is AUC and it wasnt listed border="0" class="linked-image" /> border="0" class="linked-image" /> Had a look for NGK2397`s and couldnt see them style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":(" border="0" alt="sad.gif" />
  7. style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":D" border="0" alt="biggrin.gif" /> well if your in huddersfield and you see someone putting spark plugs in with a hammer you know somethings gone wrong style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":D" border="0" alt="biggrin.gif" /> Thanks style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" />
  8. Thanks for the advice everyone style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" /> dont think ill bother oiling the threads, Going to go down halfords to see if they have any in stock style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" />
  9. Guess they should be designed for the size of the engine style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" /> Just out of curiousity should there be a couple of washers at the top of the spark plug to stop it screwing in further?
  10. Oiling the threads sounds like a good idea why ignore? style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" /> Thanks for the advice ill get the NGK plugs do halfords stock them? style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" /> *bangs head on desk I paid a fortune 6 months ago to get the leads and plugs done! ..Knew bloody sparkplugs didnt cost £15 each!*
  11. Ouch had a bash earlier and removed and checked them all they look rather white and the electrode on some looks smaller than the others They are bosch plugs only replaced 6 months ago! Guess the risk to the threads isnt that great as long as you start them off by hand and taking it easy style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" /> Probs can do it with without taking the engine cover off lucky i did as VW forgot to connect the breather hoses back to the air filter ..sigh!. So what plugs are recommended for the 1 pint engine? guessing bosch plugs arent the greatest style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" />
  12. Hiya all the lupo the other day had a check warning light come on so it went off to the dealers to figure out what was wrong was told leads and plugs although they were replaced 6 months ago! So going to do it myself this time i have checked the leads no splits ..actually look brand new still the connecting ends are still clean!. Bought myself a halfords spark plug service kit is there anything special i need to know? or is it a simple remove HT lead unscrew spark plug check and screw back in thing? Cheers Mike ...
  13. Or if your lazy like me National are doing oil changes for £25 inc oil filter sump plug style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":D" border="0" alt="biggrin.gif" />
  14. Hiya all the lupos wipers arent held to the windscreen very well seems like the springs have lost a lot of "spring" to them can you buy replacement springs or do you have to order new arms? Cheers Mike (1l lupo with standard old fasioned wipers)
