  1. Thanks @mk2 and @Rich. @mk2 - You dont seem far away - do you by any chance have any spare clips?
  2. Another update - we are on a roll. The indicator panel was damaged on the passenger side. You can see the damage in this photo: We removed the panel and pulled the front bumper away slightly to help. We are missing one of the locating pins that connect the panel to the wing. Any idea where i can get one of these? I also was gutted to see that the tabs on the bottom of the new panel we have sprayed to match the car are broken, so it sits all wrong. Any help much appreciated.
  3. I forgot to ask a question - when the blower is on speed 2,3 and 4 there is a rattling of debris, leaves etc coming from the screen vents and the interior centre vent. What is the best way to clear this out?
  4. A MASSIVE thanks to @Rich for sending through the housing for the cabin pollen filter. My daughter was very excited to fit this to her base spec 1.4 16v SE. "Thank you sir". We got this done in 30 mins (we prefer slow and steady) in between torrential rain showers, high gusts of wind etc. Some pictures for you.... The nasty area a pollen filter should be. I cant believe that a pollen filter was an option? Almost like saying a windscreen is an option...... 17 year old daughter learning her way around the car. The horrible old unit out and the base of the new part going in. The new unit it and ready for action. The cabin will now be allergy free bliss!! @Rich - I have Pm'd you. Please let me know and I can get over some ££ or beer money.
  5. That looks really nice. Ours must be the basic of basic SE spec cars as it has manual windows, no a/c and no pollen filter.....
  6. Thanks @Rich - i need the plastics that go around the pollen filter. Do you have these? Thanks @SimonJ65 - looks just like my duaghters car, minus the fog lights. I took the car to the local garage -they laughed and laughed and then laughed some more. On investigation, i had not centered the hub before tightening the two bolts. A quick wiggle and all done. We are very pleased with the result. I bought some pop out windows and rubbers and am going to install these as soon as i feel brave enough. A further question please - the heater/fan - seems to rattle at any speed over 1. Sounds like leaves or other debris stuck behind the centre vents. Any easy way to clear this area?
  7. Thanks @Mk2 - i have booked it into my local garage for later today.
  8. Update on my foolishness - I have been told that as the suspension work has been carried out the car requires full tracking or alignment. I will get this done tomorrow.
  9. Another update. Heko Wind Deflectors fitted! Front Calipers painted. I bought a set of Apex 40mm lowering springs from Ebay and yesterday i spent 6 hours fitting these after a day of Zoom meetings. They were a little challenging, but we got them done. I need your help though please. The front passenger side wheel is now sitting at an odd angle. It looks like it has far too much toe in, the top of the wheel is further under the arch than the bottom of the wheel. It wasn't like this before the swap. What have i done wrong? I will try and upload pictures of the offending article.
  10. I managed to change the whole thing and its working now. This site was a great help: https://www.t4-wiki.de/wiki/Tankdeckel Be careful. its quite a delicate set of parts.
  11. Ive got the same issue and was excited to find this thread - the pictures will not work - any ideas please?
  12. An update. My daughter and I have serviced the car on our driveway. It was interesting to see that they was no pollen filter, I understand that there is a mod to get one fitted? We also replaced the back box on the car whilst on axle stands on the drive. We have cleaned it and re-sprayed the rear bumper in original Fresco Green. You might note that the original pictures i posted show some signs of damage. I bought a set of pop out rear windows and am scared to fit these! Any advice here please? I have also bought a set of 40mm lowering springs. My daughter is 17 and the insurance goes mad if the car is on coil overs. We have also purchased a set of Arco(?) wind deflectors to be collected after the social distancing. Lastly - We would like a set of 15" 4x100 wheels, ideally VW. Does anyone have anything spare? Thanks
  13. Thanks C3peteo - We have this type of seat..... At 2m18s you see the head rests. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=egFl2nlpgCc
  14. @C3peteo - Will these fit in my daughters 52 plate 1.4 16v? If so, very keen!! I have noticed that my daughter has the head rests with the hole in them? Are these grey? Happy to collect once this C-19 stuff has cleared.
  15. That will be fine - thanks for checking.
  16. Thanks @SausageAny pictures? The Lupo must look so cute with trailer😘
  17. Fresco green for my daughter please! I will paypal you now!
  18. The spend has already started. I've just ordered a cam belt kit and water pump, Service kit, oil, heater resistor, exhaust back box, fitting kit and a new aerial. Total £250. Will fit tonight and take lots of pictures. I might even have time to replace the bulb behind the heater fan speed switch!! Insurance for my 17 year old next....
  19. Thanks @Blue Loop - Appreciate it.
  20. Thanks for the warm welcome. I have a few technical questions, so will ask in the appropriate forum sub thread. C3peto - Thank you for the offer. I will keep these for now. But you are first in line if i decide to sell up. LR5V - I will check this today, but cant think of anything funnier than a little Lupo pulling a caravan! I need a new exhaust. The fan will only work on postions 3 and 4 and the lighting behind that panel worked for 10 mins then went off. I also need a window winder handle for the 'Keep fit' windows. Indicator panel. Has anyone got pop out windows? They are very cool.
  21. Hello All. I have just bought a Fresco Green Lupo 1.4 16v today from a nice chap in Bristol. The car is for my daughter who is learning to drive. We spent the afternoon cleaning the exterior and will clean the inside tomorrow, weather pending. We have already noticed that the car needs a new exhaust. Does anyone here have a spare? I cant find evidence of cam belt change, so will do this too. The lights on the heater control panel were working this evening, but then stopped - any ideas please? A picture - from the advert..... The car appears to have cambridge rear lights. Were these original? There is also a square hole in the black part of the rear bumper, what might this have been for? Many thanks R
  22. Greetings Lupo Club. I am joining the club as my daughter is currently learning to drive. She needs a small car to practise in and also to use once she passes to build her no claims bonus. I saw a 1.0 petrol 53 plate car for sale as spares/repairs in Cheltenham and went to see this. I did some reseach and the mis fire could have been spark plugs, HT leads, Coil packs or worst case burnt valves. On seeing the car, i noted that the car ran fine, but if left to idle for a few minutes, would then start to mis fire and run very badly. If the car was switched off and on, it would clear the fault. I noted the strong smell of fuel and lots of water exiting the exhaust. I didnt feel confident and walked away. My daughter loves the shape of the Lupo and I would love her to have one. I would love her to have a GTI - but insurance might limit that! If anyone has a good car for sale, please let me know. We would even consider a project GTI (i will stomach the insurance).
