  1. All the information you need is to be found by just entering your car details onto the below excellent website. Good luck https://www.wheel-size.com/ Kev
  2. I like those pictures of the duo together. They look great.
  3. I had a similar problem with my 2000 Lupo. This thread may assist you.
  4. It’s “beloved”, but clearly not that beloved!
  5. My 1.0 E cost £215 for cam belt and water pump at my excellent local VW independent. My old Fabia VRS came up at about £280, two years ago.
  6. Will Polo window winders do the job, or are they a different fixing?
  7. Year 2000 Lupo 1.0 with 36.5k miles
  8. Nice one Mickster. Probably the best colour too. Hope it serves your sister well.
  9. Gearbox oil change resulted in significant improvement. All sorted thanks.
  10. Skezza. Thanks for that. I will get it sorted.
  11. My 2000 Lupo 1.0 has 37k on the clock. There is no service history. I did the cambelt and engine oil a few months back. I keep thinking I ought to change the gearbox oil. The box seems fine albeit occasionally slightly notch. Should I make this oil change a priority? Thanks.
  12. Result then and a good pointer for the rest of us. Glad it was a simple “fix”.
  13. Mick, See below for a reply I made to another query on the Fox. It may assist: There are two basic Fox variants. The 1.2 three cylinder and the 1.4 model. The 1.2 is the much more economical car. i have owned three of the 1.2 model, covering about 80k miles. They have proven to be more or less trouble free. It’s a good, practical workhorse, but built to a budget. There is plenty of front tyre noise in the cabin and performance is adequate. The gearing means that the car will go most places in 4th and 5th gear. Motorways are no problem but petrol consumption dips if you get too enthusiastic. The only problems I had were as follows: 1. Speedo display packed up, but this was replaced under warranty. 2. Blown fuses from trying to use rear wiper in freezing weather. 3. Front washer hose leak where it meets the bonnet...design issue 4. Electronic boot catch fail 5. Electric window motor fail. Servicing of the 1.2 is simple and dirt cheap. There is a Base and an Urban model. The latter has a few extras such as split and sliding rear seat, opening rear windows, central locking and electric windows. As a workhorse, I personally think it takes some beating. I taught my son to drive in the Fox too. The clutch is light and the gearbox is smooth. Good basic car, with a high driving position that gives good visibility. Good luck. Kev
