  1. I took brake vacuum pipe off, I'm not the best mechanic but it shouldn't let me blow air through both ways easily right?
  2. Sorry for the delayed reply, had other things to worry about during this lockdown. I am going to have another crack at the Arosa. The car is drive by wire. Using VCDS, how do you read the lambda sensor? I'm quite new to the software.
  3. I have a 54 plate 1.0MPI Seat Arosa and it has a very low idle setting of around 600 ish which is causing a random cylinder misfire (according to VCDS LITE). It is quite lumpy because of this which I'm guessing is the misfire. When I hold the revs at around 900-950 it really smooths out and the error code does not appear again until i let it idle again. I have changed coil pack, leads, spark plugs and also cleaned throttle body with carb cleaner and made sure all pipes are securely attached. I have looked everywhere but can't find a suitable fix. This is my first car and, to be honest, I
  4. Some good news: I have bought that complete engine w/gearbox which also came with a spare mirror (mines broke), headlights and a brand new alternator all for just £130! Someone was breaking an 1.0 Arosa close to me so I thought I'd get the bits now and save money later. On this new engine was a gear linkage which was in a hell of a lot better condition than mine was being smoother movement and a newer plastic thing. I have just installed this new linkage and adjusted it so it looked right and checked the gearstick. The gearstick is now almost buttery smooth to put into 1st all the wa
  5. Sorry for the delayed reply, I have been focusing on my motorbike to get it ready for MOT. In terms of the Arosa, I had an engine code come up that's P0303 which i looked up and came out to be cylinder 3 misfiring. Tomorrow I plan on checking spark plugs first as its the best thing to do first due to a tighter budget (Currently in Sixth Form and not working). I had a bit of a random thought on testing the spark plug by first checking the spark and if the spark is good, I shall swap plugs 2 & 3 and see if the engine code proceeds. If so i shall have a look at the coil pack and work on
  6. I have somehow managed to put the gearbox into neutral by releasing the clutch slowing and trying to pull off and then putting the gear stick in the neutral position. It went with a bit of a bang and shot forward. I did not expect such a jump forward as the gear stick was supposed to be in reverse but it went forward. However the car can now sit in neutral with no clutch but tends to have a funny noise i can only describe as a chugging friction noise when the clutch is not applied in neutral. I cannot find 4th gear and reverse seams to be 1st gear. I have rejacked up the car and noticed the li
  7. The gears don't seem to shift at all if that makes any sense? Its like it is constantly stuck in second/third gear regardless of what position the gear stick is in. Tomorrow I am planning on trying to put the gearbox into neutral by rocking the car and fiddling with the gear stick and hopefully try to set the adjusters to be in the right position knowing its neutral. I will have a look into the online diagrams and other manuals and I might try to put together a PDF of all useful information which I could share with others if they're interested as i like to have all the necessary informati
  8. As its late I shall try tomorrow morning as I don't want to annoy the neighbours. I shall report back when done so, thanks.
  9. I have problem with my 54 plate Seat Arosa 1.0L where it seems to be stuck in gear. The car itself has been standing for just under two years and had regular services from the previous owner. (I have just bought the car yesterday). The problem it seems to have is that it appears to be stuck in one of the gears regardless of what position the gear stick is in. I have taken the gear linkage off and found one pivot arm to be seized which i cleaned up, greased and reinstalled. The clutch appears to be fully functional with no problem and no slipping. One idea I do have is about the adjusters for t
  10. Just thought it would be best to add that this car has been standing on a drive for more or less 2 years.
  11. Hello everyone, my names Joe and I would like to write a little paragraph or two to say who I am. I am 17 and I am currently learning to drive. I bought my first car early knowing I will have to do a couple bits to get it ready. The car I bought was a '54' plate Seat Arosa 1.0. Its a lovely little car and I currently am doing it up a little bit. Slight problem with gear selection it seams. If anyone knows anything about gear selection problems il describe the problem i have further. I may be inexperienced with cars both driving and mechanically speaking but I have 2 motorbikes curr
