    2010 VW Fox 1.4
  1. You can check the pipe from the windscreen water bottle going to the wipers. There is a joint connecting this pipe to the two wiper washer jets, the garage found the joint was disconnected when I had the same problem. As for the rear wiper jet, if you check the gourmet at the top of the tailgate where the washer pipe and wires go into the car you may find the hard plastic pipe is broken due to being frozen up in the winter. The best way to deal with it is to join the broken hard plastic pipe ends with a connection of the same size, then wrapped them up tightly with SOS tape (the one that
  2. Can anyone let me know how to adjust the headlight please? I noticed the offside dip light is quite a bit lower than the nearside but I just cannot find where the adjuster is!
  3. Could anyone please let me know how to remove the door card? I have a basic Fox with window winding handles and not electric like the urban models. Many Thanks
  4. I want to replace the fuel filter but the garage told me there are different types with different pressures and I need to get the correct one. I am a bit confused because as far as I can see the filter only has two pipes - inlet and outlet, similar to my old Lupo 1.4S. Checking with various manufacturers catalogue the part number is exactly the same as the Lupo 1.4 AHW engine and as far as I can see it is the same filter as the Fox with has a BKR engine. Searching google some Polo engines do have regulators built into the filters and they are either 3 or 4 bar. Any advice will be muc
  5. I have a basic VW Fox with rear bench seat and have acquired a split seat from an Urban model. As both of the seats are really heavy I just wonder if it is impossible to separate the seat into two for easy of installation. If I can separate the seat instead of trying to take it as a whole unit it would be a lot easier and I can do it myself instead of getting the garage to swap the seats. Any advise would be very much appreciated.
  6. I am thinking of swapping the rear seat from the bench seat to the Urban Split Seat. Do I need any extra fittings in order to fit? The garage said it is possible to swap but I yet to find an Urban Fox in order to check. The Urban split seat is suppose to be able to slide forward. I just wonder how much forward I can slide the seat. I am thinking of occasions when we have to go out with our little granddaughter with the dogs so it would be good if the seat can slide forward a bit to give the dogs a bit more room. Any advice would be much appreciated.
  7. Have you changed any of the lights to led bulbs? I replaced the tail/stop light bulbs with Philips led bulbs and the emission light came on. Everything back to normal once I changed them back to stock bulbs!
  8. It's a bit expensive to change. I just want to replace the bulb with a led bulb to see if it will be brighter than the stock bulb.
  9. Many Thanks for the tip Rich. Easy when you know how!
  10. I want to change the bulb but do not have a clue how to get the old bulb out. Do I need to take the whole unit off including the switch? What type of bulb is it? Any advice would be much appreciated.
  11. 14 mm is for the long pipe, the one that goes from the pump to the rack, the long pipe to the pump has 16mm. The 16mm banjo is for the short return pipe from the fluid reservoir to the rack. Hope this helps!
  12. I am trying to find out the location of the air conditioning pressure switch on my Lupo 1.4S. Could anyone help please?
  13. This is the door check strap filled with Hard As Nails and painted. You can get a tube of hard as nails from Poundland for £1, also the gun for £1. I injected loads of the stuff inside and filled the welding gaps with it. It is for fixing brackets etc therefore using this stuff takes ages to dry and hardened but it will help strengthen the bracket. It is quite easy to get a smooth finish before the stuff dries. I do not have a video but there is not much point because both doors are now completely silent when I open or shut the doors! Before it was welded, the bracket moved in and out but now
  14. Had the same problem as described. It was the pipe connection in the panel by the passenger rear seat. If you take the cloth panel (or card ) just above the storage box you will see the pipe coming from the washer bottle has a connector that connects to the pipe to the rear wiper motor. If you check you should notice one of the pipes was not connected (or looses) to the connector hence a wet floor and no water coming out from the rear wiper! I connected pipe and used emergency tape to wrap round the connector and had no wee since! Hope this helps.
  15. Hi guys Here are the photos As I mentioned before, it is not pretty but did the trick. I have since use Hard As Nails paste to fill all the gaps and covered all the welds to make it smooth. Will spray it over once the paste is dried (Hard As Nails set really hard but takes 2 or 3 days to dry with the amount I used!). With the support of hard as nails the bracket should be fine. I am not sure how much the welding cost. I got charged 3 hours labour but that included fitting a new cat, replaced both front wheel bearings and replaced rear brake spring sets and the welding! I have finally found a
