  1. Thanks for the replies. I would rather replace the ends so that next time it is easier. Can I not make the fuel lines from rubber hose? The quick release connectors are also available online.
  2. Was going to replace fuel filter but noticed both connectors are broken. The connectors need replacing but would it be easier to replace the line? Ive already tried putting a new connector on some spare Lupo line I had but was unsuccessful due to how tight the fitting is. It would be even harder underneath the car. So my thoughts are a new line or second hand. Would second hand ones be any good still or be brittle? Does anyone know the diameter of fuel lines?
  3. Hmm I'm sure I've got an old one kicking about somewhere. Might have to rip it apart to figure out how it works. I had thought it would be a pin but applying some force doesn't budge it.
  4. Does anyone know how to further disassamble the fuel cap? I need to spray it so would ideally like to remove the flap to avoid overspray etc.
  5. Yes there has been a few! Will be keeping hold of the blue GTI for a while. Do have some amount of spares knocking about. Will keep an eye out for you 👍
  6. One of the first alterations was to swap out the OEM steering wheel. I decide to go for the OMP Trecento 300mm. I think it's much better for the size of the car. Also noticed the indicator stalk has been swapped out for an aftermarket one. Will be on the look out for an OEM one. Next up is a service, android head unit and a good clean.
  7. Might be a possibility, I'll inbox you.
  8. Still in the Lupo game 😁 (although have been driving round in a polo 6n2 TDI) Although I now own another Lupo GTI in a colour I've always wanted! 150k miles but still drives great. Plan on keeping this for a while and doing it properly. Still have the moon silver GTI which now has MOT. Still unsure what to do with it? Do feel like the price will rocket in a few years so might keep hold?
  9. Has anybody installed an android double din headunit? What's the quality like? Do they fit well? What's the startup times? Been looking at something like this: https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F113715283582 Lots of features and cheaper than branded versions. Any reviews?
  10. Thanks for your help. Discovered to be GVX.
  11. I have checked the top and I have: WWO O2T301103T GD-TL 023 I was worried the WWO was the gearbox code but I have cross referenced with another GTI 6 speed that also has the same numbers. I will check that spot and see if I can spot it!
  12. Where is the gearbox code located on a GTi 6 speed gearbox?
  13. Need to replace / upgrade the front speakers on the GTI. Yes the originals are good but they are non existent. I think I am best getting component speakers? Now how does the wiring work for this? Does the existing wiring from the headunit split so the signal is sent both to the tweeter (in the dash) and to the door speaker? Can I use the existing wiring to the door? So what am thinking... Existing wiring into door then into a crossover. Crossover to the speaker. Then a new wire from door up into tweeter? Is there a better way to do this? What are your thoughts?
  14. Apparently an Alfa Romeo 166 ballast is the same.
  15. Got hold of some 16" 4x100 I believe I need spigot rings 73.1 - 57.1? And the wheel bolts which will fit are M12 X 1.5 X 27mm - 60 degree taper? Does that sound correct? Anybody got these to fit as well?
