  1. Not enough current, faulty ignition should not affect other electric systems in your car.
  2. The OEM part number is 1J3837069B and it is the same as Lupo. Again, thank You for great pictures! I like how truck bed in second picture is the same size as whole Lupo. Is your Lupo pre-heatable with electricity?
  3. Looks great! R14 ATS cup rims? Is the black part of rear bumper painted?
  4. You can get the code from any VW dealer by providing VIN number and the radio unit serial number.
  5. I think I found the answer why there are no replacement crankshaft bearings. https://www.clubpolo.co.uk/topic/302520-14-aud-engine/
  6. Is it really possible to not hit at least 1/4 valves during timing belt failure for inline 4 interference engine?
  7. 1.2 no way, but all 1.0 and 1.4 engines, with big MPI letters on air filter box, are similar. I don't know what are the differences, but these parts, except cylinder head, has different OEM numbers on ETKA catalogue.
  8. I guess thats voltage regulator fault, don’t your headlights change brightness from very dark to very bright when rpm changes?
  9. I would love to daily drive 1Z or AAZ in Lupo, but for Lupo it is not as easy conversion as for MK1 Golf, however it is much easier than 1.8T conversion.
  10. I like the fact, and this is really the easiest way. I think passat b5, skoda and audi speakers will fit as well. I also agree the ebay set is not a great deal, but i think oem speakers are not fine with aftermarket radio units, because 50x4 heads are too powerfull for them. EDIT: with not a great deal, I meant don't buy cheap replacement speakers, take some fine quality aftermarket, or don't try to upgrade at all.
  11. You will need some tools and skills anyway. You can take any 6,5 inch speakers, cut some risers (or buy them) and connect the two wires.
  12. Is your crankshaft breather clean and without vacuum leaks?
  13. Thank you! Now I understand the idea of no adjustment needed.
  14. Yes, the fully seated is the adjustment whats needs to be done, workshop manual also uses the word "adjustment" and after rebuild should be done for input shaft, output shaft and differential. https://workshop-manuals.com/volkswagen/polo-mk3/power_transmission/5-speed_manual_gearbox_085/gearboxmechanicsgearsshaftsinternal_operation/adjusting_input_shaft/ https://workshop-manuals.com/volkswagen/polo-mk3/power_transmission/5-speed_manual_gearbox_085/gearboxmechanicsgearsshaftsinternal_operation/adjusting_output_shaft/ https://workshop-manuals.com/volkswagen/polo-mk3/power_transmission/5-speed_manual_gearbox_085/final_drive_differential_differential_lock/adjusting_differential/
  15. I found a mechanic who can repair my gearbox for proper price, but the price only includes single adjustment of conical roller bearings to “regular width”. Adjusting of conical bearings is the expensive and time consuming stuff which can not be done in 2h rebuild. Anyway, I will take a shot and try this method of repair.
  16. This manual specifically mentions they are Lupo compatible.
  17. ObjectiveAway


    you cant polish two layers of paint, it must be blended (imho blending is not easy at all for beginners). I also advice to putt the moulding back. More over I dont have any mouldings on my Lupo and my doors has a lot of dents from suv owners i guess.
  18. If sound comes from diff bearings, then breaking with gears should make a feeling that something is grinding. I actually hear it for 20 000km that my diff bearings must have to be replaced, first i heard them while releasing throtthle on high speed, now i hear them while driving even on slow speeds.
  19. the one milage you can see is stored in speedo circuit board. And if the LCD looks faded, then swapping circuit board is not an opton to solve it.
  20. OBD can show O2 sensor heater live data as well, @Shane56 check that too.
  21. Wow, You already removed anything needed for replacement. Saldly I can not see it from this angle. Its under the part that holds the beige plastic center part. Everything looks fresh, is there a lot freeplay?
  22. I agree adjusting can help, but No11 is made from some kind of a soft plastic, therefore usually rips apart and fells off, without buahing No 11 there is a lot of freeplay when you move shifter sideways. I recommend to pull up shifter boot and take a look if there is or is no freeplay.
  23. Your shifter bushings are worn out, especially Number 11, but if you already disassemble the shifter, replace at least 9,14,29 as well.
  24. Might be therefore some make manual 3l’s after automatic gearbox failure. I have seen kits available.
