  1. I love this car! Not discovered this thread. Happy it's been revived...

    Pedal box on an 03 plate

    Depends if your mechanic chap considers his time more valuable... he could save money by welding it, but it would take much more time than just buying the bits. £150 is about the going rate for a pedal box swap. But I've heard that Vdub occasionally do it for a lot less as they do know about the pedal box "issue"...

    The cable holder bends which is why the pedal drops. You need to pull it back into shape before welding it. Which is much easier with it removed...

    You could pester your local vdub dealer, as they are aware that there was a recall on the Polo- which has the exact same design. There was no recall on the lupo (there should have been). They may do it for you at a low cost with a good will gesture...

    Yeah. If that's the bit that's broken. You can buy just that piece on ebay for about £4 delivered.

    Should cost about £150 to swap for a new one. (Parts and labour). Once done, flush the gearbox with some cheap oil and refill with some good stuff.

    Welcome to club lupo to be sure if it has gone or if it's on its way out, the clutch pedal should be level with the brake pedal... if the clutch is lower, then you're right, the pedal box assembly will need replacing. If level, then it "may" just have a crack in, which buys you a bit of time. The creaking is often caused by the edges of the metal crack sliding against each other. pics of your car?

    Being 75, i don't need to enjoy life anymore. Can't walk. Can't see. Can't hear. Even stairs are difficult now. I wish my SDI were an automatic.

    From memory, the back bit is the same as a mk4. It's the little plastic pin bit that usually snaps. Then you can use the adjustable cable clamp, lever and clip from a lupo. I need to do this on one of mine too... I should post a how-to. This is so so common.
