Currently Driving

  1. I have a 1.7 SDI (2000). It's my first car, I absolutely love it, but ...I've suddenly started to get a knocking sound, (this is even in neutral just idling) along with a slight chirping sound, it sounds like a belt slipping perhaps? I've booked him to go into the garage on Wednesday, but I'm nervous we are talking a HUGE job here or the death of my lovely car. He's done 116,000 miles, so he's getting on a bit. I'm a new driver (less than 6 months) so I do occasionally make mistakes and miss a gear or stall. But I'm really hoping it isn't anything final, or anythin
  2. I'm having a problem with my indictors, they won't work! my hazards work fine. i have searched the forum but no answer as to why. a new hazard switch/relay and a new stalk came this morning, changed them both and still no such luck! anyone have a solution?
  3. Hi all, I recently passed my driving test and my first car is a 2001 1L Lupo E, I've had it a little while and it was a bit of a banger when I bought it but I've had a lot of work done to it. So far I've had front wheel bearings replaced, all new tyres, new track rods (think that's what they're called), all wheels have been balanced, tracking has been done and I've had a new timing belt fitted. Anyway in a few weeks I'm planning a road trip with my girlfriend that's about a 3hr drive and its all on the motorway 😐 . I've noticed at about 55mph my car starts to shake pretty bad but it also gets
  4. I’ve had the common clutch pedal box issue with my car and have repaired it myself. However after replacing the steering column the steering wheel can now move about an inch upwards with relatively low force. Also while turning the wheel it becomes loose and then harder to turn at certain places. Would this be due to some bolt I have missed out or something? If anyone could help me sort this issue I’d be very grateful! Thanks

  6. Hiya, I’m trying to sell my lupo... I love her but she’s poorly and due to personal reasons... I can’t afford to fix her and thanks to an ex, I don’t feel safe in her anymore.... she failed the mot as she has engine faults but I really just need some help... she has sentimental value to me so the fact I’m having to do this is heartbreaking but I’ve got no other option... these photos are of when I first got her, she’s been cleaned and had stuff done to her since including a new gearbox plus other things... help...

    Hello!

    I just picked up my first VW Lupo. I'm going to use it as a bit of a project, as it needs some love and attention thanks to the previous owner treating it like a bin!!! Anyway, it seems to drive fine but bodywork has some touches rust and chopped paint. Biggest pain is the roof gutter metal trim has popped up at the front of the car and I can't seem to push it back in! I've stuck it down with gaffa tape for now!!!! Can I slide it out and refit. There is some of the dreaded rust but it looks like it had work done previous (watchdog!!!) and I wanted to take them out and clean up and grease. Any

  10. Hi there! Just got my first Lupo (1.4, 16v, black, open air) a couple of months back, and I love it to pieces. Aside from wanting to find other lupo owners that love their cars as much as I do, I'm also looking for some advice. The open air roof leaks something chronic, and even though I've pulled the whole thing out and stuck sealant under the roof panel, it's still letting water in Can anybody either - 1.) Give me advice on how you've DIY fixed this yourself? 2.) Direct me to someone currently breaking an open air/selling a secondhand roof OR 3.) have an idea of any businesses that
  11. Good Morning all. Just a quick one. Where is the gearbox drain plug and filler plug located on a 2006 1.2l fox Cheers Kie
  12. Hi all, the ignition switch has gone on me Lupo. Just a few questions I need answered: Is it a hard job? Do I need to remove the steering wheel? And finally if I do need to remove the steering wheel, do I need a puller to remove steering wheel spline? Cheers all
  13. I ran a scan on my Lupo because there was an engine light on, here are the results. Can someone explaint what is wrong? Thank you. Chassis Type: 6X (6X - VW Lupo (1999 > 2006)) 1 Fault Found: 16785 - EGR System P0401 - 35-00 - Insufficient Flow Readiness: 0000 0000
  14. New member here, hiiiiii. Basically, I've been doing huge amounts of research and found the perfect set of wheels in terms of offset, look, width, etc., but they're Volvo, 5x108 jobbies. I've been told that it'd be impossible to get adaptors to make it happen from a 4x100. 1 ) is that right? Should I let the dream die? 2 ) could I not get the adapters made? Willing to pay a fair amount but obviously nothing ludicrous. Open to suggestions. 3 ) is there any other way I can make them fit? Please help! Thanks

  16. Hey there, i just bought a 1.4 Lupo with a folding roof. Does anyone know how i can convert it to a normal hardtop roof? Many Thanks
  17. So basically was trying to take my exhaust off and 'just backbox really' failed doing so and gave up, went to leave for work and car when into limp mode and epc light came on, I'm hoping it's due to me pissing around with the exhaust and there's a leak but that's me questing as I have no idea! Anybody shed some light please?
  18. Hi I have just bought a Lupo E 2002 with the sunroof that rolls all the way back. I discovered the other day I have water seeping through soaking the whole of the back of the top of the roof! Can anyone suggest ways of fixing it or what the course of this could be. Is it just the drainage pipes need cleaning out or do I need a whole new seal? If so can anyone recommend me any brands or places to buy? many thanks
  19. Does anyone know where i can find these clips from? Not sure of their name either so cant find any anywhere! I could do with about 10 Thanks in advance
  20. I noticed all 3 of my brake lights have gone on my 2003 1.0 VW Lupo. So instantly thinking it's the switch. Have replaced the switch and they still don't work. Checked the fuse and they're fine. Just for good measure I replaced the bulbs and still don't work. What else could it be??? Can anyone help?
  21. Anybody have any experience with tentioners and belts? When the cars ticking over there's a whining noise coming from somewhere in the engine bay and gets worse when you add revs! I thought it could be belt tensioner? Like **** bearings or something but wanted to be sure before ordering the part! If anyone has had any experience with something for like this and can help I'll be very grateful! Cheers ??
  22. Hi guys, Right so after looking at eBay parts I can't afford I was looking for some aftermarket headlights or angel eyes but can't find anything of the sort!? Anyone know any links to some aftermarket or got pics of your Diy homemade lights
