  3. Don't bother with the rebuild kits. Just buy a complete lock and key. £7 ea. Or you can get two locks with one key for about £20. I bought two of these: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/VW-PASSAT-LUPO-SEAT-AROSA-COMPLETE-DOOR-LOCK-SET-with-2-KEYS-FRONT-LEFT-NSF/222048496944?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649
  4. I got mine (2 short ones and the long one that comes round to the front to the pump) from: Mobile Fluid Ltd trading as Power Steering Store <sales@powersteeringstore.co.uk> http://www.powersteeringstore.co.uk/
  5. I just used Bay of E ones. Too early to say if it was wise, but for £12, it was worth a try. If she is 13 years older, then she may be getting nearer my age so I won't be seen as an old perv. Just a perv!
  6. Just did the door straps on our Lupo 1.4S. Not as bad as I thought it was going to be. 10 mins each side after watching a rather nice young lady on Youtube showing me how to do it. Fortunately, my nails are not quite so long or painted... Screwdriver, 10mm long socket, Coppaslip, and we were done.
  7. Sorry, no. The guy who looked at it certainly seems to know his stuff. It was an "EGR flow low" error according to the scanner.
  8. Had a cheap EGR valve fitted for MOT on a 1.0 2002 Lupo and not long after the light came back on. Managed to find a VW trained mechanic to do some work on it as we are selling it. Just had the EGR system checked out and confirmed all pipes clear. Valve even operates when commanded but he thinks is is just not letting enough flow through as there is not the movement he was expecting. Can anyone recommend an EGR valve that works for a reasonable sum? Plenty on Bay of E for about £20 but I don't want a repeat of it failing so soon. Ta. Scotty2
  9. Very Nice! That's two saved between us!
  10. It started off as a cheap car for my son to get him more interested in driving. His friend had a Lupo Sport that failed it's MOT on emissions despite having a new cat fitted. We offered what the scrap man had and I told my son I'd get it sorted for him... Turns out the engine was burning oil and clapped out. Suspect previous owner had let it run very low on oil. Not going to be a quick fix and I don't have much spare time. Anyhoo, I bought a second hand engine and lined someone up to carry out the exchange. In the meantime a local girl was selling her Lupo 1.0E with a bit of test on it fo
  11. Just finished bringing this back to life. Booked in for respray on roof, door and wings.
  12. Fully adjustable whole car set. Quite firm but good handling: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Coilover-for-VW-Lupo-6X1-6E1-1998-2005-Spring-Coil-Strut-Shock-Absorber/373239432527?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2648
