  1. Hello! I am a new but old member, I just got myself a little run about lupo! I haven't been on this forum since 2008 when I bought my first one! Im going to start this off and keep it updated for the cars journey through my ownership. It's a 2004 1.7SDI. Perfect for daily workhorse life. I got it of a great family who had lost time and money trying to diagnose the faults. To kick things off, I wil upload a picture of the faults. Apparently it could need a new ECU but could be the relay 109 that I have been researching. The faults were cleared and came back each time. Any help appreciated!
  2. Can anybody on here point me in the direction of anyone who can deal with gearboxes for a 1.7sdi, either to rebuild the one I have or source a replacement? Driving to a race track yesterday the box became particularly unhappy sounding when coating without the clutch in, happens in 1st and 2nd and the same noise has now spread to 3rd gear. Clutch in, out of gear and 4th and reverse seem to produce no whining, so I fear I've lost main bearings or something along that route in the gearbox. It still selects just fine, but driving it is likely to end in the inevitable loss of probably everything. I've been quoted around £1000 to have the box out, another box thats on ebay for £350 put in, along with a clutch and the labour, which I honestly can't really justify at this time. I've just put it through an MOT and at 183,000 miles its seen quite the life as my first and only car for the last 6 years. As some may understand, I'd be quite devastated to have to let it go Can anybody point me in any less wallet crippling directions?

  5. Hello my name is Eugene. My car is VW Lupo 1.7 sdi 2000 y. Klimatization I want to change the engine 1.9 TDI or VR5. Are there people here who practiced such a project? My car is a VW Lupo 1.7 sdi in it very little power
  6. Hi guys, I'm new here just bought a green 2000 1.7 S Sdi loop. its completely standard with 111k on the clock. Going to get saving for the real mods now needs to be low obviously. But i live in north yorkshire and they seem to like speedbumps and potholes up this way. I want it to handle well but i'll be doing 400 miles a week on the motorway so i'd prefer my spine to be intact afterwards. Can anyone recommend a good set of coilovers? The brakes too i've noticed are, for lack of a better word, s**te. so would you guys go for the full overhaul and replacement calipers bigger discs etc. or would a nice set of standard sized discs and pads do? I've heard something about g60s but i'm not entirely sure whats involved with those, any links or info would be appreciated. Now for the big question.... the engine.Have any of you guys heard of someone tuning the nonturbo diesel? should i start with the obvious air filter? and can you get a new ECU chip for performance? i heard that standard engines in most cars are pretty de-tuned to improve lifespan so i'm hoping i can get some more Ooompf from this little beating heart. As for external mods... i'm not sure yeat i like the way green looks with a good pure white so thinking of getting some white alloys. some moderate tints all round i think would contrast well with the green. I'm tring to avoid the green and black combo, not that i dont like it so much as i dont want to drive something that looks like a gillette razor (http://www.expressch...ower-razor.html) i'm a fan of all your loops on here havent found one i dont like yet so any input will be well recieved. Cheers, Bri
