  1. Update: Thanks to this great forum I've got a lupo that steers in a straight line and does not follow bumps potholes and road camber. Wheel alignment was off after all, sorted now and she drives like a new car. Just out of curiosity though, what pressures are people running in their banded steels? (If anyone's running them?) Standard pressure or higher? Tyres aren't stretched
  2. I've swapped them back to a more standard side alloy. Didn't change anything. Rich, would say mine feels loose. Halfway through a corner the steering wheel needs to be adjusted to actually go round a left hand bend and not into the middle of the road.
  3. Doing top mounts next. Springs are good and shocks aren't leaking. It is lowered and does have banded steels on but this is only very recently this problem has started to show. What exactly do you mean by feel it throught the wheel?
  4. Matching new tyres. The knock sounds like it's coming from the front
  5. Strut top bearings was next on the list to replace. A bit more info though, there does not seem to be play in any component. Steering wheel is secure as I've recently replaced the ignition barrel due to a snapped key
  6. Hi all. Tried a forum Search, but nothing with symptoms that sound like mine The lupo has suddenly developed some strange steering issues. It has a mind of its own when going round corners a bit faster than usual and wanders on surfaces that aren't the best. I do have a knock over severe road surfaces. Parts that I have replaced trying to solve this issue: Both bottom arms, both track rod ends, both drop links, both anti roll bar bushes. Now when I say the steering has a mind of its own, it's very vague in corners to the point where I have to steer more to corre
  7. Hopefully I'll be running mine for years. I love it to bits. Still don't know what I have that would be any use. Can't do that lol. Going to try that bearing fix with how rare these are.
  8. I'm not going to bin the old box. It was hard enough sourcing that one. Probably is the ffv one, just the breakers don't know what's going on. Interestingly, rang veedubs up in Gateshead and they had never heard of a 1.7. Something interesting?
  9. I'll definitely have a look into that as a bit extra power going up hills wouldn't go a miss. Gearbox is in and doing 80 @ 3000rpm! 😀 Glad it was the right box. Possibly like. How much? I like the rat/patina look. Apologies for ruining the colour.
  10. Ok magic, I'll look into that MK2. I'm not looking to sell it on, I love it to bits. I just want to concentrate on getting it sorted, then when I get bored of the SDI speed I might go down the conversion route when funds allow... But that's a ways away. Thanks for the reference on the RPM. I'll see what it sits at tomorrow once it's fitted
