    Lupo 3L anti roll bar drop links -help!

    Rich, do you reckon the ball with thread may have pulled out of the link then? I will give it a brushing this evening.
  3. Hello all, I have been running a 2001 imported 3L since 2013 and have been told by the MOT centre that the front drop links have too much play and require replacing. These are plastic and different to the standard lupo version. My issue is that my ones push directly onto the ends of the anti roll bar ends but all diagrams I can find show a bolt that screws directly into the end of the anti roll bar. I can only find a threaded version of the drop link online. Do any 3L owners out there know if there was a version of anti roll bar that just plugs into the drop link?

    Lupo 3L timing belt

    That is very helpful indeed. Thank you. The VW price for the items is a lot more than the eBay kit but I guess that buys peace of mind. My engine is an ANY. Do you know if the service interval is 40k miles for this task? I have added some pics!

    Lupo 3L timing belt

    Hello all, I am new to posting on the forum so thought I would introduce myself. I have been driving a UK registered Lupo 3L for the last 3 years, covering about 36k miles. The car is a year 2000 model and has covered about 160k miles. It gets an average of 81 mpg. The timing belt is overdue for a change but I have not been able to find vw part numbers for a kit that includes the water pump parts. There are kits on eBay but I do not know if they would meet the same VAG standards. Any assistance with part numbers appreciated.

    Lupo 3L part numbers

    Hello all, I am new to posting on the forum but have found it a very useful resource over the past few months. I have owned a 3L in the UK for about 3 years and had very few issues with it. It gives an average 80.2 mpg but has gone as high as 96 mpg. I suspect the timing belt change is well over due and have found kits including the water pump on eBay. I would prefer to order direct from VW but do not have part numbers. Can anyone assist with the Vw numbers for a cam belt change kit including the water pump belt? Are the kits on eBay any good? any info much appreciated.
