  1. The passengers side door handle has broken at the top lug which fits in a hole in the door panel. It IS an MOT fail, and you have to replace the entire door panel (because the handle is not available separately from VW ) at a cost of £73.00!!!!! Does anyone have a clever fix for this?
  2. Hello just wondered if anyone could point me in a direction to get window winders for a lupo 1.0 sorry if this topic has already been covered thanks in advance for any help danny
  3. Hello all Second post of the day, but i felt this one was necessary. i feel as though a "how to" is pretty useless for those who find things easier with pictures. This post is for those who find their bonnet release levers to loose. it seems to be a common problem on lupos and there isn't really a detailed "how to" so here it is. 1. first what you wanna do is push the mysterious "square button" at the back of the lever in or you can lever it out with a flat head screw driver. this button is actually a retainer clip as you can see in the pics. 2. once you have pushed or removed see button/clip, the handle should come straight off. 3. remove the panel screw 4. the whole panel should slide back and away. 5. once the panel is removed you will be able to see the bonnet release mechanism. remove this will the two screws you can see all of what i am describing in the attached pictures. 6. once you have remove the two strew and have the mechanism just attached to only the bonnet release cable you can flip it around and see a screw coming out the other side (it holds the pivot point on). tighten see screw i have shown the screw driver bit size in a pictures as well. 7. once its as tight as you like put it back in place and put the two screws back in. on the far screw the loom may get in the way just push it towards the firewall gently until the screw is replaced and tightened. (I'm saying gently because plugs can get brittle over time and its not worth even the slight risk of damaging one) 8. put the panel on in the opposite direction you took it off being sure to make the two alignment clips go where they supposed to. 9. tighten the cross head panel screw 10. put the retaining clip into the grooves of the handle (see pics for more details) 11. replace handle in the downward position ( how the handle sits when not being used. If you have done this right then there shouldn't be any more rattling and the whole thing should feel less like its about to snap when used. i hope this has helped at least someone out there. http://www.flickr.com/photos/106892742@N02/sets/72157637048562104/ if an administrator could pin this in the "how to" section that would be awesome. caio.
