    Arosa 1.0
  1. UPDATE: After many weeks of waking up neighbours with trying to start my car I think I've finally found the issue, ordered a new fuel filter from Eurocarparts (Big up the 50% off) and fitted it. Not a problem this morning with the starting. I also noticed the old filter on the car was backwards (arrows pointing towards end of the car) and doubt it was changed recently as the screw holding it in was basically welded in, managed to rip it open to see the damage too. Bit of WD40 and a bit of petrol down my sleeve later and the car is running way better. Thanks for all your input!

    Top mounts..

    Yes it's the ones in the engine bay, I'm going to return some SKF bearings I ordered as these were clearly wrong. I've found someone who is breaking an arosa so may have to ask very nicely if he will sell them to me

    Top mounts..

    I've greased it but it seems the creaks are more structural than it being the strut, gonna have to disassemble the struts and maybe add new top mount bearings

    Top mounts..

    So I've been running JOM bluelines for a few months now, I didn't expect them to be so...creaky... What top mounts and bearings should I be using? I'm having a lot of trouble finding the original ones to buy (silver disk with the black rubber ring around the outside) but if anyone has a link to them it would be greatly appreciated. I've read with the JOM coilovers there may need to be some modding of the mount, can anyone confirm this? Thanks!
  5. So the ignition is all fine, spark plugs are good and emitting sparks like you said. I found a 'knack' which seems to be working, I just have to turn the key as slow as I can and the first instance it turns the engine over let go of the key and it starts. I got a new battery last week as the old one used to die if it was turned over too much, I don't think it's made much of a difference but needed a new one anyway Definitely feeling like it's a fuel issue still, just because sometimes when I'm driving it will shudder slightly if driving at low speeds, gonna have to check out the fuel pump at some point
  6. Yeah I've taken tomorrow off work to look at it properly because it's doing my head in! My friend did mention about the relay which I just haven't got around to checking. Would it just be the case of cleaning and re-wiring or would it be essential to get new parts?
  7. Hi I've been having this issue for a while and after a long train of trial and error I've resorted to asking on here.. The car is an 8v 1.0 petrol - AUC engine. Essentially the car won't start in the morning or after the engine has been off for more than 6/7 hours. Can't be the plugs as I've replaced the coil pack, leads and plugs - cleaned and gapped them too. I've patched up all the air leaks I could hear/find and replaced a lot of the hoses. Something I have noticed is that on the first turn of the key, you can't hear the fuel pump regulating after 2 times it's done it. Is this normal or should it be doing this every time? I've Blanked the egr (drilled a 4mm hole in the plate though to see if that would stop the light coming on) - not an issue as I can blank off with Bluetooth OBD reader. I've narrowed it down to fuel, I've been reading online about the temp sensor and coolant sensor can be the cause of this but I'm not sure it is linked. I'm guessing it'll be the fuel pump which I'm yet to check - tomorrows job. So I guess what I'm asking is if this sounds similar to anything you've experienced? and if so, how was it resolved? Thanks!
  8. I'll deffo be interested in one

    Just posting some pics because I got new wheels, pads and disks over the weekend. Amazing how a set of wheels can transform a car... Was looking for something retro so when these popped up I couldn't resist! https://m.imgur.com/gallery/yuIEgxa
