  1. new bolts aquired, center caps ordered, sorting out the tyres for the weekend if all goes well work wise, then their on and the cars off to uni with the daughter she's well chuffed with them
  2. their gone presently sitting in my front room till i can get the tyres fitted
  3. common vw issue! micro switch in the lock fails/corrodes, it tells the ecu that the lock is open or closed, not sure on the lupo? not pulled the locking motor yet to see if its replacable like on my t5, on that the switch was a green blob of snot! it was cheaper to replace the switch than too buy a new lock! plus the cheap locks out there operate differently in some cases, they dont dead lock or the double click locking via the remotes unlocks the door again!
  4. majority of places seem to sell the mech without the motor at around the same price as the mister auto one! £155 from euro's with the discount code! if your motor is ok just by the mech and swap it over

    My daughter has just bought a 1.4 16v lupo, just spent the day getting the manual mirror adjusters working, they now move freely in all directions via the knob and fitting a remote locking kit, thanks to Skezza who's how to made it a much easier job, only made harder by me who decided to fit the control box in the center console behind the heated rear screen switch, all soldered, taped joints and cloth taped wrapped cabling, well I had the cloth tape left over from another job so it seemed rude not to use it think there are few other mods/fixes that I'm going to be doing before she goes bac
