  1. Yeah I love it to bits. Hasn’t moved in a week and that’s a long time for me and my cars. I have no urge to go to pubs,restaurants etc we have three cars between me and the wife so could manage on 1 tbh. we’ll see how the rest of the year plays out. I have an urge for an mx5 😉
  2. UPDATE: Another 4 weeks has passed. Nothing new to report. Need to find time to fit the rear brakes still... With myself still working at home, and the wife now at home, the little lupo isnt get as much use as it once was Not sure whether its time to sell..
  3. Nothing an engine rebuild can’t sort out.
  4. i would hope after 8 years he has passed uni and got a new car haha
  5. I’d say all of it. that oil pan is a 6L and it’s quiet full. If the factory comes with 4.7L as advised I’d say I haven’t missed any. Also the drain plug is at the back of it so at this angle it falls towards the drain which is perfect.
  6. Why thank you! I have the necessary tools I feel. Never enough tho is it haha
  7. UPDATE: Got a lot sorted today! So managed to change the front Arb Links. Nice new rubber! Oil and filter change too! Old stuff smelt of burgers haha! I’m convinced the previous owner ran this on veg. Not a problem just it’s smells like an old BBQ ha! also took it to the local alignment place I got new tyres fitted couple of months back as documented on here, and since then the car has chewed the outside edges of the tyres to nearly bald! So new front tyres needed again! Ffs. oh well let’s hope the alignment has now fixed this issue. Anyway.
  8. Thanks! I did check before and the coolant was the correct temp for the engine. But the dial on the dash is wrong/faulty. It’s also using a little coolant every week so I’m hoping they are linked. there are no leaks that I can see
  9. not sure yet. i have some already. but if they dont fit.. ill come back here
  10. Have done a search but cant get the answer i need. I want to replace the coolant Temperature Sensor. i need to know where it is... and what is the correct one. A picture would be ideal! like i said i have tried searching but getting nowhere. 2004 1.7 SDI reg: OE04 LLN
  11. these still available? im going to replace mine tomorrow as i have already got some im hoping i also have the correct size
  12. as a comparison my local VW specialist was charging me £200 to replace the pedal box. good price
  13. Just like to keep this updated: Car hasnt changed just wonderfully reliable! Gonna do an oil change, filter, and replace the arb links tomorrow! Should make it sound a little less DERV! engine cover needs to go back on too just cant fathem how to do it .. i think some of the rubber bits are missing to locate it.. anyway i hope everyone else is doing fine
  14. Ha ha. sorry the car has been amazing. still need to fit the bloody rear brakes.
  15. so been 10 days and havent had any issues so far! Maybe the battery was on its way out! Not much else to report. still using the car - still have a full rear brake kit to go on.. just need some nice weather
