    Lupo 1.4 16v standard.
  1. This might be the totally wrong forum for the question but will ask anyway just incase someone does know, my Mrs has a 2003 polo and my daughter wants to buy her a double din stereo for xmas, any idea what would fit or any links to what would fit with the aid of a new fitting kit and wiring harness, its to replace the standard double stacked radio and cd player Thanks folks
  2. Turns out it was me looking at the wrong one, there is a version for a 1.4 at 60 quid more
  3. It failed on "exhaust lambda reading after 2nd fast idle" Garage advice was probably because the exhaust is blowing in a couple of places(flexi is very bad), the whole exhaust isn't the best anyway, but found a complete system from manifold back (with centre cat) for 150, didn't think that was tooooooooooooooooooo bad, the biggest issue is they have listed it as a 1ltr fitment only
  4. Ok peeps here goes......... My 02 1.4 16v petrol has just failed its mot on the emissions, think its due to the front flexi and other bits blowing, the exhaust isn't the best so I'm going to replace all from cast manifold to tail pipe, now looking at mine it has 2 cats in the system, 1 on the end of the cast manifold and one after the flexi pipe both with sensors that are connected, now looking online I see that this particular system is supposed to be for a 1ltr wicked and no mention of the 1.4cc, as both sensors are connected I'm guessing it's correct for the car because of the 2
  5. Yes that's what I thought initially because of the part that's missing (had a look for one but can't seem to find one anywhere), but saying that after taking off the EGR valve (think it was stuck closed) giving it a good clean and scraping out and getting the valve to open again, then doing a re-set on the fault light, touch wood the engine light has stayed off for the past 5 days, so fingers crossed its sorted, cheers for your help folks LL 🙏
  6. One more question, the egr valve has a small metal tube coming out of it which I think is something to do with the vacuum, the 1.4 polo we have has the same egr valve on it as my lupo, on the tube is like some kind of small breather or plug, mine is missing of the lupo does it matter its not there?
  7. As haynes don't do a lupo manual I've just ordered a polo one as the mrs has the polo, should come in handy for mine too hopefully.
  8. Thanks for the picture Sausage, will take a look over the weekend and give it a good clean 😉
  9. Dumb question I know Sausage but where would I find the EGR valve?
  10. OMG I had to ask didn't so many options too, with the links below I notice the exhaust my be the cause too, the exhaust is a bit shagged, can't here it blowing but is suffering from the old tin worm so I need to replace that at some stage, so might be one option to test out, but can't hear any whistling that would lead to an air leak. As above the exhaust needs doing, from fanimold to the back of the car, so may do that sooner rather than later and see if that helps
  11. Hiya folks Shortly after I bought (private) my 02 plated 1.4 Lupo the engine check light came on, I planned on doing a service anyway, plugs, oil, filter and air filter which was carried out, I also purchased a fault code reader to obviously read and clear fault codes. I read the codes before I cleared them but now the lights back on, the codes are as follows........... P1151 long term fuel trim additive air bank 1:range 1: system to lean P0402 EGR system:excessive flow I have now idea where to start looking or changing (I'm used to carbs, points and r
  12. Definitely needed doing sooner rather than later, the sleeve wasn't to bad, a little warn but perfectly serviceable, TBH the clutch kit from euro car parts was only £75 quid which I didn't think was to bad, had a release bearing, pressure plate and friction plate in the kit 😎
  13. Here's what I found.....................
  14. Ok think I found the issue looking through the forum, turns out it sealed with sealant and not a gasket and its a pig to do as the cams are in the casing so the cam belt has to come off, cam belt could do with changing anyway so there's the next wee jobbie 🙄
