Newbie (1/14)



  1. MK3 Polo - My location is in Cannock, Staffs Treblet - yup- a bargain but need it out of the way as need garage space for new project
  2. Complete lupo dash, clocks, black under-dash plastics, centre console, heater control unit, light switch, coin tray etc. out of a 2001 1.0 Everything works. Does not include airbag. £50 the lot Located in Cannock, Staffs Pick up only I reckon, as postage on this lot would be about £30 I reckon - the dash is really heavy I'll even throw in a spare coin tray! Rich
  3. No turbo... they didn't do a 1.7 turbo. Car drives bang on, no pulling or tramlining. I only noticed it had knocked the corners off the tyres when i looked round it before doing the advert. Just needs the tracking setting. I replaced a lower balljoint in february so its probably due to that. I'll put some more photos on tomorrow.
  4. Make:SEAT Model:AROSA MOT:Feb 2012 TAX:COtober 2011 Engine size:1.7 Fuel type:Diesel 1998 R plate 108k, no history but I've had the cambelt, new clutch, glow plugs and a new calcium battery in the last 6k miles or so. Comes with central locking and a £350 (in 2003!) pioneer MP3 stereo that controls and ipod - still quite a sort after model though DEH P77-MP which still fetch about £80 on ebay. Good little runabout. Tatty, with a quite a few small scrapes, dents and scratches and the interior isn't mint - although not bad really. I've used it as a cheap car for getting to work as I do a lot of site visits. Need to carry ladders now so just bought a cheap skoda fab estate. Does loads to the gallon (55ish) Only faults I know of are weeping gearbox (top it up every now and again - I'll throw in some oil) and the tracking could do with setting up as its starting to knock the inner corners of the fronts (conti eco-contacts about 5k old). Runs really well - always starts on the button. Also has a stainless steel exhaust (on it when I got it - at 40 I'm a bit old to be a boy racer!). Large ish chip in fromt windscreen (passed MOT with it though) - rear bumper cracked and scracthed when someone reversed into it on a car park. Location: Cannock, Junction 11 M6 Price: £550
  5. Cheers for the reply, I actually got through to them today - apparently they had 3 members of staff off last week - although they are in kent... Rich
  6. Hi all, Just wondering if anyone has heard if Volksapart - part of Volkswagenspares.com has gone under?? I've been trying to get in touch with them all week as they were going to recon my gearbox for me. Spoke to a guy there last week and he was very helpful, but then have tried to contact them this week to arrange collection of my box and....nothing. Phoned them 5 or 6 times a day on 3 different numbers I've got - left answer phone messages and tried to contact them via the web... Anybody heard anything? - and can anybody recomend an alternative gearbox specialist?? Cheers Rich
  7. Cheers mate, just ordered a pair for the princely sum of £4.45 - bargain! Rich
  8. Oooh, which mk golf were they from Rattic?
  9. Okie doke, looks like a trip to the dealer then, Cheers Rich
  10. Hi guys, Does anyone know if the window winder handles on a Lupo are the same as on any other Vdub? Lupo's are quite rare in scrapyards, but golfs / Polos are all over the place. Cheers Rich

    Dash Swap

    Hi, I was wondering if a Lupo dash will go into a Mk1 Arosa? I've pulled a complete dash out of a lupo and have hooked the clocks up for a test and they work... I was wondering about the heater box and fan and if that all lines up with the heater vents on the lupo dash etc. Also, I undid all of th 8 bolts in the scuttle behind the wiper motor to remove the dash, but I can;t for the life of me find anything on the Lupo dash that they bolted to - have I left a frame or something back at the scrap yard?? Cheers for looking Rich
  12. Hi mate, I'm interested in the whole interior, with the carpets if in good nick - how much? Cheers Rich
