  1. Hey people, I'm having issues with my Arosa not heating up when I drive. I had an issue last summer where it was overheating, and the easy fix at the time was to remove the thermostat. Now in winter, having a cold car is not so comfortable, so I got a new thermostat put in. Then it started overheating again, so we did some research and found all the culprits for overheating in Lupos/Arosas. This list included: faulty thermostat, faulty water pump, airlock, and faulty radiator. We tried to bleed out any air using methods found online, some posted by supposed VW specialists, wi
  2. Ah! Thank you for the info! I'll see if I can find one from VW supply, as the ones sold by CWS are not what I'm looking for.
  3. Ah yeah, I've seen that style, but I'm not too keen on the gap, I prefer the duck tail / lip look.
  4. The GTI spoiler is different to both I mentioned here, isn't it? GTI one has the brake light ontop rather than underneath (preferable), would it fit an Arosa? Thanks
  5. Hello, I'm looking for either a Genuine VW spoiler or one of the old MS Design spoilers that are now discontinued. Wanted for my Mk1 Arosa. I found this post where rapidebrothers showed a Genuine VW Accessory spoiler they had just fitted - does anyone know the part number for it so I can try and track one down? https://forums.clublupo.co.uk/index.php?/topic/91313-non-gti-spoiler-for-lupo-14s/ I also found this image of the specific MS Design spoiler. Are they the same spoiler? If anyone knows of one going / where to find one, please lmk! Thanks, Sam
  6. Hello, it's me again I've got quite the conundrum going on here with the doors on my Mk1 Arosa. It started when I was installing some new original mirrors to my passenger door (old ones were not correct at all) and I noticed that the interior panel was different to my drivers side one. From what I've gathered recently, my drivers side is a correct panel with the domed hole and the lower two clips being 'slide on', just like all the Lupos, Mk1 Arosas, and Mk2 Arosas I've seen. My passenger side panel, however does not have the dome at the hole and the lower two clips are push in alik
  7. Best bet as always is to find a car going for parts with the sticker still intact and hope it comes off without tearing. I did manage to find one although it did tear when removing, ruining the' SEAT F2' portion. I'm using the oter half on its own though and unless you know otherwise, it looks correct.
  8. Hey again, I'm wondering what the chances are of sourcing one of those apparent 'dealer' stickers found on the rear windscreen of Mk1 Arosas and Mk2 Ibizas? Maybe someone here has some knowledge behind them. Thanks, Sam
  9. Hey, thanks for the reply! We managed to install them successfully yesterday and it was a lot easier than I thought it would be. When we opened up the tweeter grills and had a look at the speaker mounts, it turned out that the previous owner had left some old Pioneer tweeters in there. All be it one was mildly attached with a couple cable ties, and the other had fallen into the void below, both with dried hot glue all over them - bit of a botch job. Luckily, however, they had done a really good job of soldering the exact inline crossover wires that came with my new speakers onto the mount
  10. Hey people, How do I install my new speakers? I've grabbed myself a pair of Pioneer TS-A1600C component speakers to replace the original speakers in my MK1 Arosa. The previous owner had upgraded them and then put the originals back in when selling it so there are plastic adapters already installed allowing enough depth for my Pioneers. I'd assume the tweeters are also back to original (not sure if previous owner ever changed them) as I haven't checked yet but if they were upgraded, they probably weren't a component set. I also upgraded the reciever to an Alpine UTE-200BT
  11. Ah okay, new Arosa seats or should I get something else? I'll have to look up if they ever made an Arosa with plain seats, and then if I could find them... The first thing I did when I got the car was thouroughly wash it inside and those stains, let alone the patterns, aren't budging.
  12. First of all, I've found that searching for anything seat related for my SEAT give Google a hard time. Fun. Both the front and rear seats in my Arosa are stained all over from previous owners and I'm really not a fan of their pattern - I'd prefer plain black or black & dark grey. The previous owner had gotten some really cheap Lupo covers expecting them to fit and kinda roushed them on so I re-fit them, swapping the driver's and passenger's around as the release lever is lower on Arosa seats, cutting my own slits in the correct place. Thing is, they're falling apart and will not stay
  13. Aye yeah haha no worries, you think that's alright to buy though?
  14. I wanted to grab a grille for my arosa and was wondering where I would find one? I see its quite common that people have replaced their arosa grille but the best I can find online is a few ebay listings with no reviews. Reckon this would be fine to buy? Or am I missing something here... https://www.ebay.co.uk/p/Seat-Arosa-6h-97-00-Black-BADGELESS-Front-Grill-Grille-Debadged-Gitter-No-Logo/2263628880?iid=173398708501&chn=ps&norover=1&mkevt=1&mkrid=710-134428-41853-0&mkcid=2&itemid=173398708501&targetid=594043210550&device=c&mktype=pla&googleloc=90456
