  1. Hi, Having spent about 30 mins trying to take one bolt out of my lupo's front wheel, looks like the threads on it are completely mangled as well as on the hub itself... Seems to me the goons at the tyre place must have rammed the bolts in after the last tyre change... 1) Do I need to replace the whole hub, or just a part of it 2) How difficult a job is it to do? Cheers much
  2. @bossjohnc - where did you get the info on the Sale of Goods act? I need some evidence for my argument for when I call VW up tomorrow.
  3. Apparantley there is a lot of difference in two months - The woman's words "VW has a policy that under no circumstances will VW offer any Goodwill for vehicle over 5 years old" Oh well. :cry: I take it the rear 1/4 panel needs to be cut out, not unbolted??
  4. Phoned Customer care who said take it to dealer. Dealer took a couple of pics and said they couldn't do anything as car was out of warranty (fair enough). Suggested that I give CC a call again. Was told that given the age of the car, VW could not help at all. The car is 5years and 2months old. VW will only give goodwill to cars less than 5 years. I asked what they would do if this happened 2 months earlier - "Chances are we would have helped!" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":evil:" border="0" alt="evil.gif" /> Bloody crap customer service - even the dealer was surprised. Moral of this story: Test your jack thoroughly on something other than your lupo first and NEVER ask VW for anything. They are SH*T! style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":evil:" border="0" alt="evil.gif" /> style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":evil:" border="0" alt="evil.gif" />

  6. Thought y'all might be interested in this as I didn't think that there were many GTI specific grilles on the market: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vie...7906189057&rd=1 style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":D" border="0" alt="biggrin.gif" />
  7. Heard that Redex is quite good. Just pour it into the petrol tank, and it'll do its job while the engine runs. style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" />
  8. I unhooked the vinyl gearstick surround from the bottom and lifted it above the gearknob to expose the base of it. On my one, the base was blue with a metal collar holding it place. Use a screwdriver or pliers to expand the collar, and the old gearknob should just come straight off, but will be attached to the vinyl surround thing. I replaced the gearknob with a Momo one, which was not at all specific to VW. All I had to do was put the correct size rubber cap (supplied) onto the gear stick and then tighten the new Momo knob accordingly. I would post some pictures, but not sure how to do it. :? Hope this helps anywho. style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" />
  9. I have Weeman. What seems to be the problem?

    They are legal, but only after you have stuck the reflectors onto the rear bumper. I've got these - Love 'em! style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":D" border="0" alt="biggrin.gif" />
