  1. Thanks for the replies. Switch 'looks' ok as working fine on setting 1. Recirc is auto disengaged when demister is on as expected. Fans all ok when A/C switched off. Just tried again and A/C still only working on fan position 1. So pulled back the cover to the heater resistor (under passenger side shelf) checked connection to block, waggled wires and sure enough A/C started working again on settings 2-4. I doubt this is a long term fix - suspect that the next pothole I hit on the glorious roads in Cambridge will cause it to fail again. May change resistor anyway as not expensive and 'appears' an easy replacement.
  2. On my GTI, A/C is only working on first fan setting, (light goes out on button on remaining settings, 2-4) Fans all ok on all positions. Is this likely to be the blower resistor in passenger footwell? Only reason doubting is that if resistor, thought A/C would just be working on highest setting (4) not low (1) Thanks
  3. I agree with Rich that 2nd hand from scrappy is the best approach... but was unable to source locally and needed to fix quickly. These are the best ones from eBay, matches OEM quality https://m.ebay.co.uk/itm/VW-LUPO-WINDOW-REGULATOR-REPAIR-KIT-FRONT-RIGHT-DRIVER-SIDE-/122538438364?txnId=1983023125002 Quite an easy fix in the end. Just make sure you clip the square metal blob on the regulator wire into the recepticle in the clip first (flathead screwdriver helps), then attach the clip to the black rail after. Bit of grease/silicon spray on the rail. Job done.
  4. The inevitable just happened and both window regulator clips broke as I pulled into my street tonight, causing an instant window drop. Quick call to the local VW Dealer, Vindis (spit) tells me they're discontinued. Really? Have now sourced off ebay, which is no doubt cheaper and about as quick. Guessing an easy fit?
  5. Belated pictures, best I could do in the gloomy conditions. MOT passed, so happy with that. Some mods since the pictures on Parkers, when on L6UPO plate. Previous owner lowered on KW. I replaced the original head unit with a Sony XAV-602BT a few years ago. Works well, clear BT call quality and music streaming. Built in SatNav is pretty good too.
  6. OX04AKJ. I can post some pics next weekend... It’s MOT week coming up, so it’ll be sparkling,
  7. The pictures of L6UPO, must be of my silver GTI, which was previously registered with this plate prior to my ownership. Now on an Oxford OX reg, I bought it from an independent dealer in Surrey in December 2008. Still only 55K on the clock.
  8. It's 6E0915430B. Should be 20 odd quid new. If buying a used one, make sure clips aren't broken.
  9. If you're quick ,there's someone selling 2 sets of VW cargo straps for 99p per pair on ebay, item no. 250455018884 (or 250457670080). I got a couple from the same seller for that price and they were a bargain.
  10. Yep. Part#= 6E0863466N. Listed as insert for luggage comp. floor, GTI on vagcat. Took about two weeks to arrive as was on backorder. From memory, cost was between 20-25 quid, so an expensive bit of foam really. I sourced all tools, compressor, gel,retaining band etc from ebay quite easily and obviously a LOT cheaper than the dealer.
  11. Just receieved part no. 6X0860252 from VW...however, turned out to be a plastic bag, so not quite what I'm looking for! Am actually just looking for the foam insert that holds the tools. Anyone know which part no. this is, hoping it's stamped on the insert itself? Thanks (99hjhm: Clip fits in the 9 shaped slot below the screwdriver, costs about 40p from VW)
  12. That's great. Thanks for the speedy reply.
  13. Does anyone have the part number for a Lupo GTI foam tool kit holder that sits by the battery in the boot? My local VW dealer hadn't a clue when I tried to order one recently. I've searched on here to find out what it contains. Is it just the compressor, tyre gel, brace, centre cap removal tool, spanner and screwdriver? Cheers
