  1. for £20 if it fails I'll get another one. If the performance is poor I'll be able to tell and order a better one.
  2. Good thinking I'll get some leads too. This set has been on the car at least since I've had it so they're 10 years old+ Interesting. I've already ordered the coilpack for £20 so not a massive outlay.
  3. Have you seen my post today about my leads and coil pack? Could well be something similar.
  4. I was going to post about this earlier asking what it could be. Hesitation/misfire/3 cylinders firing from around 1500-2000 rpm but fine above that. I took the leads off and looked. This looks pretty conclusive: 1 corroded, 3 fine. I blasted the coil pack and lead with carb cleaner which cleaned it right up. It drives so much better now. Even gear changes and pulling away are smoother. I've ordered a new coilpack too.
  5. I took the nut off and reseated the top bush and the plate with some grease on both sides. That stopped it. Blissful silence now.
  6. I've had a bit of squeaking for a while and it seems that the latest increase seems to have coincided with me changing the suspension in the summer. I put it down to it being bumpier now but with how much noise it's now making I'm wondering if I've done something wrong. The top mounts of the rear shocks are supposed to look like this aren't they? Is there anything I could have put back together wrong? It's all tight but I've retightened in case.
  7. Absolutely fine. I can't see how the GTI ones would be different. Perhaps just the motor is different?
  8. Can you PM me with a price? Cheers
  9. Around the rear seats does seem to be the general area. I'll check the clips thanks. I've replaced the shocks when I fitted the coilovers a few months back. That said, I think I reused the top mount bushes. I can't even remember what they looked like. What I mean though is that this (particular) noise has been there for 10 years. Here's a video. Listen carefully at 10 seconds when reversing off my drive and the rear of the car changes angle. Old subframe bushes maybe? Just cold and sticky? https://photos.app.goo.gl/JUNwBJMy21UuMJJm6
  10. Has anyone with a Lupo GTI ever had creaking or rattles or any noise coming from the rear that they've managed to source? Ever since I've had the car I haven't been able to deduce where the noises are coming from. It's probably a bit pointless describing them but one's like a dull rattle which I thought I'd sorted by securing the number plate lights better but it's still there. Then there's a creak which maybe comes from the back of the rear seat. The exhaust is free and never knocks. I can't see anything loose near the battery or tyre inflator etc.
  11. Yeah still need some. I'd like a spare set to refurb. Have you still got some?
  12. I fitted the £22 eBay one (https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/NEW-VW-LUPO-SEAT-AROSA-PASSENGER-LEFT-ELECTRIC-WINDOW-REGULATOR-REG-98-05/193484677001?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m2749.l2649) yesterday and it's actually really good. I took my time aligning it all and it's perfect again.
  13. Does anyone know the right ones to get from eBay or anywhere else for the top and bottom door cards? I think they're slightly different between the 2. A few of mine have broken over the years and after the recent regular replacement so I'd like to renew them. These look about right? https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/10x-VW-Plastic-Interior-Trim-Clips-for-Door-Card-Mouldings-Panels-Boot-Linings/370854522503?_trkparms=aid%3D1110012%26algo%3DSPLICE.SOIPOST%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D228096%26meid%3Db32255b61a6543a086844f46529c0203%26pid%3D100008%26rk%3D2%26rkt%3D12%26mehot%3Dpp%26sd%3D371212021093%26itm%3D37

  15. I keep wondering this but this driveway is slightly sloped so when the handbrake is on the rear lifts slightly and when on level ground the rear arches still look higher than the front but the sills look parallel. One thing I don't want is any reverse rake and at the moment the handling feels absolutely perfect so even if it is slightly raked I'm happier that way. I dunno, I might take 10mm off the back and see what happens.
