  1. Have a look at the gearbox speed sensor. It could be that the stationary resistance value is out of spec but the pulse when you're moving is detectable by the speedo. Might be a dirty connector.
  2. The inner wings on the golf are highly flexible. The braces make a huge difference but I imagine the Arosa / lupo chassis is much stiffer.

    Arosa tdi

    On mine, the nut on the quadrant had come loose. Horrible job to fix.
  4. Got a TT wheel in mine. Some info in this thread.
  5. The 6N Polo GTi has the same front arb, but it's the lack of rear bar that's the problem. You don't need to source a GTi rear beam. You could weld a 25mm tube into your beam or find a whitelines. I have Bilstein B6's all round and Fabia VRS lowered rear springs. The back end sits at the standard height. Haven't found suitable uprated front springs yet. There's loads of clearance to the sump. I grew up road rallying so like my cars to tolerant of crap roads.
  6. I imagine it's a 085 so there'll be loads of choices available from many VAG cars. If you look around the spare wheel well you should find the build sticker which has the current gearbox code on it. The sticker is also in the service book. This helps find what the ratios are. Then you can choose to keep the same or try something different.
  7. I went for a set of Thule aerobars. Cost under £100 by figuring out which parts were needed and buying them off ebay and gumtree at the right price. Then got some Thule 591 bike carriers.

    Road trips

    I think the biggest comfort challenge is that I'm 6'5". My legs might not be happy. Looking on Google maps, it's only 2.5k miles and should take 45hrs (!!). Mine is a TDi with a longer box so it cruises all day at 70-80.

    Road trips

    Due to lockdown frustrations, midlife crisis, bucket list ticking and the reality that my Arosa won't last forever, I've decided that it's going to Nordcapp in the middle of 2022. Over the channel at Dover and up through Norway returning via Sweden. I was wondering if anyone has had a go at similar long distance travel in a small car. I was thinking that the back seats will be coming out and a roof box may be required. I also have a LWB T5 but the Arosa can do 60+ mpg so it's a no-brainer for the distance.
  10. I'm after a drivers side mirror cover and door lock cover for a white arosa.
  11. That's what the parts catalogue suggests.
  12. The 1997 part no. is the same as the 2003. The only beam that's different is the one with the anti-roll bar.
  13. The rear mounting holes on the subframe are also the alignment holes. They are slack on the bolts but there is a recess on the shell that is the same diameter. I've a vague memory that it's a 16mm bore and the bolts are 12mm. You mount the subframe with the front bolts loose and align at the rear, then tighten everything. Here's the relevant pages from Elsawin. subframe_refitting.pdf subframe_removal.pdf subframe_torque.pdf
  14. What are people using? I have the 3 bulb interior light from a Passat. Getting a decent white festoon isn't too hard but a matching 501 for the map reading light is a pain. I need to buy in quantity as I have 7 cars to sort.
  15. Yes. They're in the garage somewhere.
