  1. It’s “beloved”, but clearly not that beloved!
  2. 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.
  3. Will Polo window winders do the job, or are they a different fixing?
  4. Year 2000 Lupo 1.0 with 36.5k miles
  5. Nice one Mickster. Probably the best colour too. Hope it serves your sister well.
  6. Gearbox oil change resulted in significant improvement. All sorted thanks.
  7. Skezza. Thanks for that. I will get it sorted.
  8. 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.
  9. Result then and a good pointer for the rest of us. Glad it was a simple “fix”.
  10. 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 e

Speedo display packed
  12. Sony CDX GT57OUI Face off radio cassette with cabling, removal keys, mounting cage and front trim. I removed this from my Lupo to install the original equipment Blaupunkt radio cassette. Radio works fine. I never used the CD player.
  13. Walser, an Austrian company, make particularly good seat covers. https://www.walser-shop.com/en Maybe worth a look.
  14. Thanks. I appreciate your thoughts on price. I just want someone to make use of them rather than sit around at my place.
  15. Four VW Softline Lupo Alloys with Tyres from my 2000 Lupo. Two tyres with 6mm tread. Two tyres with 5mm tread. The alloys are cosmetically marked as is shown in the pictures but very serviceable. Locking wheel bolts included. 4 x 100 ET 38 175/65/13 Wheels located on the North Worcestershire/South Shropshire border. For collection only. £95. They are surplus to requirements and I don’t want to store them.
  16. 55mm x 48mm so measure the base It is flexible and you may warm it in hot water to stretch it
  17. Yes
  18. It just stretches under the base and tucks in underneath
  19. Just stretch it over the base. No need to remove headliner or the base screw. No connections needed
  20. The link I sent you will sort it. That is what happened to my rubber gasket
  21. Thanks for that. I don’t know this stuff
  22. Not necessary for the gasket. It stretches over the base
  23. It’s easy. Just place over the base and stretch it into place. No silicone is necessary.
