  1. 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?

  3. See post below for pictures: Make: Volkswagen Model: Lupo MOT: 13/03/20 TAX: 01/03/20 (but cannot transfer this anymore), Tax is £30 Annually) Colour: Dark Grey Engine size: 1.7 Fuel type: Diesel Mileage 150,000 (currently still in use, so increases) Description including modifications: I'm the third owner from 16/03/13 on wards. Its my daily driver, but its starting to have a few mechanical issues, which I don't have the time to sort myself, so I'm hoping to sell it on as a light project for someone. Gutted as I really wanted to keep this car until the engine goes, and then maybe do a V5 swap, but having a baby and another project, means I don't have time to be working on the daily drive anymore. - Two keys included, the torch on the main key does not work, light bulb is missing. The car runs and drives, and starts every time and has MOT Mechanic problems that need attention: - The Gearbox has started to 'wine' in the lower gears. This is due to the selector seal needing replacing and hasn't been sorted. I was quoted 1200 to source and fix the gearbox. It would benefit from an oil change. I will include the selector seal part with the sale. The noise isn't very loud (doesn't sound like a super charger, but is noticeable. Its been like this for about a year now. - I've seen on this forum the repair kit for the internal gearboxes is around 120 quid? Hopefully this can be sorted by someone who has the time. I don't, unfortunately. - The bodywork is scuffed, there is also some surface rust on the rear wheel arches. I treated this with some wire wool and hammerite, but has come back. This hasn't rotted through the panel yet. - One of the door strips has fallen off and left the rubber residue on the door. - There is a dent in the rear quarter panel (probably from a bollard, was like that when I bought it) - The car has been used all year round. The interior is in need of a good deep clean. There are some stains on the front seats and has a cigarette burn on the rear seat. This is from a previous owner, and the car does not smell of cigarettes (perhaps a careless passenger) - The Aux belt has started to get noisy at idle (will include a new Aux belt) - The wheel arch covers are missing. - The engine under covers are not fitted, but included in sale. - Rear suspension bump stops are torn and would benefit from replacing. I assume the rear suspension is original, as I've never touched it. Rear tyres are old and have been on the car from before I owned it, they are starting to get some hair line cracks, however it passed MOT without advisories - Steel wheels have surface rust - Original VW Wheel trims present, but scuffed Service history. Part service history. Full folder of receipts during my ownership. I have serviced the vehicle myself for most of its ownership doing oil and filter. Very little history prior to my ownership. During my ownership I have had following done, or changed the following: - Cam belt done twice, last done 17/09/18 142646 miles (done by a local garage) - Front suspension fully replaced with genuine VW parts 28/02/17 - Power steering hose replaced 14/03/17 mileage, 139727 - Front Tyres replaced 2014, Kumo's - Alternator, Aux belt, Tension er, 23/11/15 mileage 135638 - NS front ball joint replaced 23/11/15, mileage 135638 - Rear brake wheel cylinder, Shoes, shoe fitting kit and Fuel filter changed 01/03/19, Mileage 142646 - Front exhaust pipe with CAT, gaskets renewed 17/10/14, Miliege 129887 - Front discs and pads changed - Handbrake cable replaced 10/03/14, mileage 118930 Location: West Bromwich, West Midlands, B71 area Spare parts included - Aux belt - Gearbox selector seal - First line break lines - Gearbox selector part (can't remember name) Images will be added later today, struggling to get my phone images to file size needed. Price: £200 ono
  4. Make: VW Model: Lupo Sport Tdi MOT: Ran out Nov 2018 Engine size: 1.4 Fuel type: Diesel Description including modifications: So this car is a do up project, currently SORNed and out of MOT. Exhaust needs sorting, currently has no back box on it due to it falling off. Age related rust issues. Electric windows are temperamental but I've been told it's an easy sort for someone who knows what they are doing. They work when you long press the key but not using the button inside the car. The bonnet catch has been taken off but bonnet still accessible just need to pull the wire. Battery is flat as it hasn't been used since November but had a friend hook up a battery to check the engine 2 days ago and it runs fine still Full service history included.This car will be a great project for someone or a cheap runner for someone starting out. Inbox me any questions. I only got rid of it because I have no idea how to make a car work again and couldn't afford the time or the money. I want it to go to someone who will do it up and give it a new life! Location: Keadby, just outside of Scunthorpe. Images: Price: £450
  5. VW Lupo 1.7 SDI Yellow Clean 9 Months MOT no advisories 1.7 Diesel 100,000 Miles Good runner. New brakes all round New clutch put in 2000 miles ago. Rough paintwork as bump strips were previously removed and not very well.. Was my wives car, used for popping into town and no longer need it. SOLD ONO
  6. Afternoon All New to the site and not actually a Lupo nor Arosa owner yet but am currently looking, aiming to pick one up before the end of May, hazar! So yes hello, I'm South Wales based although I travel for work so may some of y'all on the road. If any of y'all have a yearly running cost of the 1.4 TDI Sports trim (Lupo) or the standard Arosa diesel that would be great, just going of guesstimates right now but want something more concrete before I purchase
  7. 2002 VW Lupo 1.7 SDI black for sale with 147k miles good runner with 5 months MOT left also taxed so ready to drive away. Had a second hand gearbox along with a new clutch on Feb 2016 that had done 71k miles. Cambelt and timing belt changed on Dec 2015 last serviced sept 2015. Fuel filter and air filter changed in summer bought oil filter but haven't had time to change the oil. 4 alloy R15 wheels came with car not to everyone's taste. Good tread on all tires except right front passenger which was a remould (see pic) runs well and is a reliable workhorse. Fixed heater which didn't work when I got the car (only worked on no4 but now all works) passenger window doesn't work possibly dodgy motor or window runners haven't had time to sort it out. Central locking works 90% of the time. Also had some respraying to cover up car park scrapes on passenger wings it's not pretty but covers it up. Open to offers looking for £900.
  8. Hey, I've got a 1.7 sdi Diesel lupo 2000 plate. Recently the reverse gear just refuses to work, all the other gears are perfectly fine, I can pop the reverse into gear and it'll shift back a few inches then either jump out or make a horrible crunching noise, I've taken it to a mechanic and by force he can reverse it back normally but the car sounds terrible because you can hear it wanting to push the reverse gear out. My mechanic as quoted me £1500 for a new gearbox! Or I have to find a second hand one, all in all inc labour I'm looking at around £800 and there's no guarantee the gearbox will work as its second hand... i went to a local mechanic and told them my problem and they said it sounds like a broken reverse linkage? Never heard of something like that but inc labour it's £150..if that's the case. I'm going to book my car in but I'm worried they'll cause more issues then I have, love my lupo but it's a 2000 plate and I don't really want to spend almost 2k on a gearbox. does it sound broken? Or a link breakage? Am I being ripped off? Sorry for such the long post but it's becoming impossible to drive the car without reversing, I have to roll out of my drive -__-. Any advice would be great! thanks!
  9. Make:VW Model: Polo (9n3) MOT: Aug 2016 TAX: £30 per year Engine size: 1.4 Fuel type: Diesel Description including modifications: Very cheap reliable car, done over 11K miles to and from work Alloy wheels with good tyres - one is brand new Air conditioning is ice cold Electric windows and electric heated mirrors Driver, Passenger and Seat Air bags The interior is in great condition, the exterior has the usual wear with a couple of normal car park dents (one on each side) VW service history until 2011 then independent afterwards. Last service at 88,650 miles which included new pads/shoes and discs, as well as wheel cylinders. The brakes have had a total over hall. Drives very well, had the wheel alignment and tracking done when I got it - need to for the miles I do. Comes with 2 keys, both central locking fobs for the alarm system. The car is a cat d, it had a cracked front bumper (paint was intact) and a broken tab on a headlight from the bumper moving when I got it, I was surprised that it hadn't been fixed as it looked like a parking mishap. I had the bumper, bumper bar and front panel replaced to make sure it was totally fixed and reliable as I can't afford to not have a car for work. Rather than replace like for like I requested the updated GTI front end and lights which I think makes the car look newer and more appealing. The only other thing to mention is that the clutch release bearing sometimes chirps in 1st gear, its always done it and never got worse. I've asked 2 different garages to check it wasn't the clutch and both said the clutch was good, it never slips and it drives perfectly. Location: Ashford, Kent Images: Price: £2595
  10. Arosa Write Up Seat Arosa 1.4 TDI S 2001 I have for sale my beloved mk2 1.4 Tdi, I used this car to commute to work but have changed jobs and can walk to work. It will easily return 60mpg+. As a car enthusiast I love to enhance cars and have spent a lot of time and money to make this car fast, economical and yet look as standard as possible. All parts have been replaced with either original or OEM and I have all the documentation. Mature driver and always driven with mechanical sympathy. Dblock is my brother so you know the car has been treated well. It has all the usual mods. 100bhp remap which makes it faster and more economical. The 0.622 5th gear mod which does 70mph at 2krpm. This means super quiet and efficient cruising. The mod cost £300. All the normal wear and tear items have been done like the stat, temp sensor and suspension work and a clutch. So the car is good to go. Engine is sweet and is serviced every 6000 miles (half the interval) using the proper PD 505.01 spec oil. Gear box oil is also proper VAG stuff. Coolant is G12++. The car has been treated very very well. I bet you can’t find a car on sale that has been treated as well as this one. We have 2 Arosa Tdi’s in the house so we know these cars well.

    Can someone please tell me what this pipe is called it's cracked. Seat arosa diesel
  14. Well... I'm back. Since my Arosa sport I've had an Octavia mk1 1.9tdi 108ps, a Seat Ibiza FR mk3 pd130. Now I've decided to come back to the Arosa/Lupo Club but with the 1.4 tdi. Couldn't pass up the chance of £30 a year road tax, great fuel economy and cheap insurance, especially being self employed. Bought it last Thursday (02/01/2014), already changed the rear lights for standard Lupo's and wired the rear fogs and reverse lights. I'll be looking to purchase a full interior if anyone is selling, as the one fitted is gray and stained. And bumpers, maybe sport ones but I'm not too fussed, I do miss having front fogs already though . Problems I've found so far:Driver door dropped (replace hinges?)Illumination on the heater controls not workingFloppy accelerator (I fixed this before, loose bolt on the acc pot)Electric window switches totally knackered (fixed this before too, rebuild the switches)Windows roll up and down incredibly slowMid speakers do not work at allTweeters crackle and cut outRear bumper cracked (probably replace)Body damage on most panels (probably live with it)Few rust patches (Sand back and spray)Dirty stained grey interior (needs replacing)Curbed alloys (may be changing wheels anyway)Starter motor runs on after startingBrakes feel odd, spongy and wheel wobbles when braking hard. (warped discs? air in system?)Tracking looks outRear offside spring has shattered (want to lower anyway)Key gets stuck in lock when locking the doorRemote fob doesn't work, red LED never illuminates (I'll have to buy a couple more from ebay)Mats need replacingAlterations done so far: Rear lights replaced for Red Lupo onesLED map lightSprayed a bunch of Oust inside it
  15. I changed my heater plugs as the car was sluggish on first start,but even after changing them its still sluggish,what to try next?fuel filter,oil filter,or air filter or all .
  16. finally got my Lupo Tdi, its my second car, the first was a 1.0 red seat arosa travelled 14 hours from Leeds to Cardiff and back to get her home He's a black tdi with full colour coded interior, which means blue/black leather seats and headrests, leather gaiter and handbrake cover, leather upper door cards, leather stitched steering wheel, cup holders, heated seats, sport alloys etc etc after a four hour clean: my old car: still lots to do so i'll keep you posted: - bee sting ariel - colour code badge Carbon fibre wrapped, ready to be fitted - paint callipers Red - sort out paintwork - fix gearbox (if i can?) - clean interior (boot full of dog hairs) All interior stripped and cleaned - Fix speakers (cracked) - paint door handles (scratched) Wrapped in blue carbon fibre - New alloys Tsw venoms painted and fitted, only temporary until Bathurst are refurbed - Lowering - new Grill FK grill honeycomb with GTI badge, ready to be fitted - rear spoiler bought, need to be painted and fitted - re-map? thanks for taking the time to look, any comments would be appreciated
  17. I recently brought a lupo 1.4 03 and there's a strange tapping noise coming from the top end? The noise seems to disappear after 2000 rpm, I done a oil change and filter and it sounded slightly better its not a very high mileage either 72000. The noise is really starting to irritate me any suggestions? Cheers
  18. we have owned it a bit over 3 years great little car very reliable and economical,, cambelt and water pump at 138258, last service 150806 , new brake pads at 150000, hpi clear, rear exhaust in 2009, new track rod ends in march, synthetic gearbox oil, vw cd and tape players . anything else you would like to know or more photos please ask Located in Luton £1150 ono
  19. Hello all, just regsistered here, seems to be a small, tight knit community :-) I've currently got a 2009 Honda Civic Type R GT, I do roughly 350 miles a week in it and it avergaes 38-40mpg (Motorway driving exclusively). Me and my missus are planning on moving out and as such I have to save money where I can, which means getting rid of the Civic. Been looking and bang for buck the Lupo and Arosa TDi's seem to be brilliant value for money whilst still having some character However, I'm not sure which one to go for - the Arosa's seem to be about £1,000 cheaper than the Lupo equivalent - i'm assuming the extra is for the VW badge? Can anyone tell me what is different about these two models? Or are they exactly them same and the only difference being the outward appearance? Just wanting to know which one everyone prefers and if there's anything different about them? IE Apprently the Arosa comes with more spec except fogs? Thanks for all the help, posted this on the Arosa bit as well to hopefully get some balanced reviews
