    Engine switch light lupo 3L

    Nothing to do with the accumulator. The green light goes out when the foot brake is pressed. Or in his case, should. RAB

    Engine switch light lupo 3L

    When you start the car with the lever in S, you need your foot on the brake as this opens the clutch. If putting your foot on the brake doesn't change the status of the green light, you have a faulty brake switch. This will be confirmed by being able to start the car in N. RAB
  3. They are not a press fit. They are part of the arm. RAB

    Lupo 3L fuel issue

    Again, can you manually move the turbo VNT mechanism? Wheel bearings OK? RAB

    Lupo 3L fuel issue

    Have you scanned it with VCDS? Can you manually move the turbo VNT mechanism? Wheel bearings OK? Coolant temperature sensor OK? RAB

    Lupo 3L 1.2 TDI problems

    When was the air filter last changed? Can you manually move the VNT mechanism? RAB

    Lupo 3L 1.2 TDI problems

    Get it scanned with VCDS. When was the fuel filter last changed? If you don't know, change it. A problem with the accumulator would disable the accelerator. RAB

    Lupo 1.2 TDI annoying driving Noise

    I presume that he is trying to press out the drive shaft against the bearing assembly. It will be impossible to remove the bearing assembly with the puller because there will be nothing to use the lead screw of the puller once the drive shaft is removed. You can only do this with the right tools. RAB

    No, as usual the 3L is different. Smaller OD bearing than any other Lupo. Otherwise no difference, just smaller to save weight. Unless installed correctly, the ABS won't function. With the correct tools, this job can be easily done without removing the hub. A gear puller will never work because you are just pushing against the drive shaft; either the shaft or the bearing (probably the former) will eventually move, leaving the second still in place! RAB

    With right tool (above), the drive shaft will be removed easily. To change the bearing, you need a special puller kit which is for use with the 3L and Audi A2 1.2Tdi only. Any other method, including a press, will damage the new bearing.

    Are you using the appropriate tool? There's a tool that bolts to the wheel flange: https://www.machinemart.co.uk/p/cht240-universal-hub-puller/ You are using something that may not exert the full force in the right direction. Don't use a sledge hammer! RAB

    Adjust the tracking. Too much toe out! RAB

    All 3L's are fully automatic, or semi-automatic! RAB

    Lupo 3L rear springs

    3L springs are not the same as stock Lupos. RAB

    Lupo 3L TDI

    Why would they consider it a manual when it has no clutch pedal? It is fully automatic or semi-automatic, depending on the position of the gear stick. A manual it is NOT! RAB
