  1. Cancel that it’s a rust bucket.
  2. https://www.gumtree.com/p/cars-vans-motorbikes/vw-lupo-17-sdi-30-a-year-road-tax/1324798229?utm_campaign=socialbuttons&utm_content=app_ios&utm_medium=social&utm_source=whatsapp Might have jusy found myself a new one.
  3. So after a fail on the MOT and deciding to sell the car for parts I have done some serious soul searching and have decided to keep the Lupo and put it back on the road. The list of jobs seems endless but this is it: Brake peddle not retuning to the up position. Have to lift with foot for the last 1cm to turn off the brake lights No reception on the radio this is a aftermarket head-unit (Do i need a signal booster?) New suspension and bushes all round (What is the cheapest way to do this?) Blown exhaust in various locations (What parts do i need for a full system) Cam Belt and Water pump (Total confused, What kit do i need and where is the best/ cheapest place for this?) Brake disks pads and hoses More to follow. Tighten up the gear linkage. (At some point) Gear box flush and oil change (Is there a liquid for this like engine flush? and best fluid to replace it with) Where to start and get this done? I am sure there is a list of parts as long as my arm. I will update this as it goes along. All feel free to chip in with any advice and help.
  4. Make that number 4. I must have a S model. Still sat in my car port with a list of jobs to do to get it past a MOT. Skezza, mk2 I think I am going to have to put it back on the road. Found a garage that I can do the work in. New year jobs for me.
  5. It’s not true Salisbury is safe! And we get free parking on a Sunday tyvm. If it helps I am in Amesbury just off the A303.
  6. Andrew I am truly grateful for the last 5 year of fairly trouble free and certainly very cheap motoring. Might have to keep it at this rate. Still no offers.
  7. Feel free to bring your respirators. 🤢 I would love to fix it up and keep it on the road but the wife is a little less willing than me.
  8. Make: VW Model: Lupo SDI MOT: 28/11/18 (Fail) TAX: £30 p.y Milage: 105,000 I am sad to have to do this but I am going to have to let my Lupo go as it has failed its MOT today I have attached the list of faults. Other than what is listed the car is in not to bad condition. It is clean and drives well. I am not in the position to break it for parts. If I had the time and space I would fix it myself but this is not an option for me. Location: Salisbury Wiltshire Price: £650
  9. Refurbished powesteering line. £60 from pirtek. Cracking job. Even put a joint in for me after the flexi hose part to make to easy to fit back in with no problems. Gave it a quick service at the same time new oil and filters. 35% off at Euro car parts helped out.
  10. Thanks, have you both used pirtek before? Would they make a set of hoses for it? Is this the only option? Anyone in the Salisbury area that could help me out?
  11. VW LUPO 1.7 SDI 2001 I am looking for some help getting my trusty steed back on the road. Monday my power steering pipe split spraying fluid all over my drive. If Mondays are not bad enough already. I am struggling to find the part online or with a breakers. Dose anyone have any? Or knowlage on how to get it back on the road? Or is willing to help me? (Wiltshire area) I don’t really want to give up on it just yet.
  12. Thanks Skezza, You seem to be the go to guy for SDI's. I will try and take a look. Will I need a ramp or are they easily accessible under the car? What do i need to check for?
  13. Good evening all, Pretty new to the whole forum thing but have been amazed by all the knowledge on Club Lupo. Now I need some help. I have a 2001 SDI with about 80,000 on the clock. Problems 1. Power steering only works going right. I have topped up the fluid and tried to bleed the system but still no luck. Going left is much harder working against the pump. Turing right is not smooth it feels like it jolts and the power steering kicks in. I would love to tell you how it started but i lent my car to a friend as his car was in the garage being fixed and got it back like this. If there is anyone local to me (Salisbury Wiltshire) that has good knowledge of this to help. I have a few more smaller issues to fix along the way so this list may be added to. Hope someone can help.
  14. I am also interested in doing a EGR removal on a SDI has anyone got a step-by-step for this? Also what was the quality of the ebay part?
