    Cherry’s Fresco

    I wish I were... don't get me and my dad confused. He'll have a go at me otherwise.

    You should be able to get that as you have everything else (incl birthday)...

    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.

    Bonnet release

    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.

    Hi 👋👋

    The MIB don't have a sense of humour. Oh, and it's "you're".

    Rear windscreen seal

    Once you've cleaned the rubber seal and allowed it to dry, wipe it with a layer if silicone oil. Helps stay watertight.

    Hi 👋👋

    Sadly this is why Ray has to do his job. Complete strangers like me have no idea what is going on up north in the Durham area where you all live... Normal people are of course welcoming to all in the love of our Lupos (and Arosas). We never jest as we have no sense of humour.

    Rear windscreen seal

    Nope. R U 100% sure? Most probably the hatchback seal. They can leak if there's some gunge in there.

    The bigger question is why is the entire front end stripped? Was there a mishap? Or is it turning into a GTi?

    Yeah long extension, but what's up with the Arosa tailgate?

    Gearbox FFV

    Just ask about in your area. Best people with knowledge are the little workshops. They usually know someone...

    Gearbox FFV

    There's a guy in Reading I I know. Look around for little one man gearbox garages. They are generally better than the big chain companies.

    Gearbox refurb

    Stationary for a couple of mins, with the front wheels off the ground in gear to clean the diff too. Then dump the contents while still spinning, keeping all the bits in suspension (in oil). Gets all the metal bits out. See definitive gearbox thread...

    Flush first with some cheapo stuff...

    lupo not holding revs and cutting out!!!

    Was thinking that too, but there's something else going on to give those codes. Especially with the MAP and throttle motor.

    lupo not holding revs and cutting out!!!

    No idea right now. Might be a loom fault, or the main feed supplying all the sensors is down. Could be a fuse. Manifold air leak?

    lupo not holding revs and cutting out!!!

    Welcome to club lupo! could be a lot of things. Good start would be to get a cheap diagnostics thing (ebay?). might be TPS? TEmp sensor. Air filter. You need a working O2 sesnsor. But diagnostics will confirm everything. pic?

    Greetings from the Canada!

    Wow! I mean seriously, who drives a beach buggy in the snow....?! How do you keep an air cooled engine warm?The snow drifts look just like sand dunes in the desert. But my guess is that you can't really walk on the stuff. Train stuck in the snow? How? Just push it out of the way.... Shows that I have no experience at all of this type of weather.

    Rear Wiper Motor

    Yeah, just about every vdub of that era has the exact same problem. Water gets between the inner brass pipe and outer steel shaft then freezes. Activate wiper while frozen. Snap. Water pours inside.

    Greetings from the Canada!

    You have white stuff everywhere. Looks cold. Even the wellies you guys wear look like they have an extra layer of insulation!
  24. Just tried the wiki tab at the top, which now dumps out. Start at cl main landing page then select it... dunno what happened to it? Anyone?

    Greetings from the Canada!

    I cannot imagine -40. That is seriously cold. It must affect things like synthetic rubbers (seals, belts o rings). Even plastic wire insulation will crack if it flexes when that cold. What about things like wiper motors and other stuff that has grease as a lube? Doesn't it set hard like concrete?
