    Clayton's Tornado Red GTI..

    Ahh okay I didn’t know that! Seems like good settings. Is the subframe out of line though to give the odd caster readings?

    Clayton's Tornado Red GTI..

    Nice. What GoPro mount are you using too that allows it to move slightly? And what geometry have you gone for?
  3. As per title, I have two very good condition suspension arms fitted with Powerflex black series bushes front & rear. Asking for £90, can throw in delivery if needed. Location wigan.

    3rd Brake light

    Could you really be bothered though? Doubt you'd get charged more than £10-20 for one of a breaker. 12 minutes as opposed to 12 hours of a job.
  5. Hey up - anyone aware of somewhere that does adjustable top mounts for the Lupo? (Or what else uses the same - 6N/6N2 are the same too I think). See @Kam Racing have some listed on their site but says "No options available" so I'm assuming they're no longer available. Cheers
  6. Thanks for that - looks just the job and a reasonable price! Looking specifically for adjustable, want to adjust camber without having to move top of wheel closer to strut/spring. But the info re fixed upgrade will be useful for when I do the suspension on the TDI! Thanks

    Tacho problems...

    I wouldn't trust that guy.

    Lupo GTi in U-Pull-It in York

    I see the doors are still there. Me thinks a trip to York is in order.

    Soft Blue 1.7 SDI

    All parts available. Comment for prices. Can post items (Not the larger ones), or collection from near Wigan.
  11. The breather pipe you refer to being aimed down at the road is in fact the air intake, which is fine to be as it is. The one Mk2 is referring to lives underneath the plastic airbox, roughly where the dipstick is. It's a push fitting and is easy enough to simply remove from the airbox.

    Project Rally lupo!

    Hi all, been a while since I've been on this forum! Used to drive a fantasia green lupo E for my first car! Been itching for a while to start a project off and get into rallying. Happened to get my hands on another lupo E for a reasonable price, and decided instead of selling it on/using it as a daily I'd use it as a base for a project! The car was a lupo 1.0 E. Standard car. The plan is to do the minimum to meet regulations to begin with, and then progress from there. Going to be leaving the 1.0 engine in initially and then as time/money allows upgrade to either 1.4/1.6 class. Over the weekend I've began stripping out the interior. Car mainly stripped out: Didn't realise there was this much in it! Removed radio and speakers today. Began wrapping the colour coded bits of the dash in Matt black to reduce glare on the window. The plan is to fabricate a panel to cover the double din hole where the radio is usually located, and house all the switches in here. Next up is to remove all the bits of bitumen from the chassis and roof. Then next on the list will be to install a roll cage, to see what mods need to be done (if any) to the dash for it to fit. Ordered a battery master switch with 6ft pull cord today as well. There's going to be a lot of work involved but it will be worth it when I get there! If anyone's after any interior bits, please let me know! Watch this space!

    Hounslow on A4. Black Lupo.

    If you squint, you can just about make out the Lupo!

    Compomotive mos swap and cash

    Meh. It's personal taste I guess. I don't like them but if OP does then fair enough. It's nice to see someone doing something different at least.. The rear bumper is growing on me though!

    No Compression 1 & 4

    If it helps you, I'm only down the road from you really near Wigan. I have a Polo 6N2 sat outside with a 1.0 AUC engine in it which at the moment is doing nothing. If you need a new head, complete engine or any bits just drop me a message. I do not however have a compression tester.

    What have you tried thus far in diagnosing the problem? Essentially whether the car starts doesn't particularly matter at this point. The gear selector doesn't know if the car is running or not.

    Arosa Engine light on ?

    If it is the above, I have a 1.0 AUC Polo at home and would have one available. (All engine parts for that matter)

    Ball joint?

    Ok, changed top mount bearing and also discovered the front bolt of the suspension arm was slightly loose contributing to the banging. Still getting an odd noise on lots of turning to the right, suspect maybe tyre is catching on the spring as I noticed some rubber shavings on the strut and spring. The noise has only been present since I got the camber set to -1.5 deg, so ordered some 3mm spacers to move the wheels outwards slightly.
  21. Clunking randomly over bumps etc and then noticed this when I stopped. And a weird whirrring sound when turning heavily to the right. At first I put the clunking down to the diff that’s in the car but seemingly not! Not had time to properly inspect, but sounds like a ball joint, right? A2FA1568-5F4C-483B-A84E-C2A9FA4EFF25.MOV

    Ball joint?

    Changed ball joint for good measure but didn’t really do anything. Ah well, one less out of the collection! Top mount & bearing will be here tomorrow. I am hopeful that you’re going to be the winner of this one @mk2. FE264B37-0313-44BF-8380-D86E3A7BE611.MOV

    Ball joint?

    I would have been inclined to think that also but I’m not too sure. It seems to clunk in a straight line too with no steering input.
