  1. Hi guys, I recently brought a little Lupo S 1.4, I really need help looking for the name or where to find and buy a missing part, it’s a small thing but it makes the car look miles better. It’s the metal cover that goes onto the lock barrel, where you insert your key. I have attached a photo highlighting the part. Any help would be massively appreciated! :)
  2. Hi all, I've just ordered some proper funky dice door lock pull pins, I was just wondering are the original ones on by thread or glue? Cheers, Luke
  3. I'm after a complete lock/key and mechanism assembly for a lupo tailgate 51plate in red. Although colour not important. Cheers in advance
  4. I've just bought a complete Mk2 bootlid and i intend to fit it to my Mk1. This is a non central locking bootlid so wiring will have to be transferred and a new lock and handle will need to be purchased. However to be able to use my existing key, regardless of which handle is fitted, the lock and barrel will have to be switched OR modified. I have done the latter and modified the lock to be fully functional with my existing key. This is how it was done: I removed the handle from the boot to do this but it can be done with it still fitted. 6 Nuts is all that is holding it in so its not too hard to remove and makes life a lot easier later on. First things first, you will need to remove the e clip and lock arm There will be a C shaped clip retaining the next part, i have already removed it in the above picture. This clip is the difficult one to re-install as it is retaining a spring plate. Be careful when removing this as the springs are under pressure and WILL want to fly everywhere. Once that clip is removed all of the other parts should just slip out. When i extracted these i made sure to keep them lined up but they should all slip together one way so it really doesn't matter, i was just being extra cautious. The business end is pictured on the left of the above, this is a 2 piece assembly, once the sheath is removed all the teeth should pop out. This is the bit you will need to swap with your existing part so that your original key will work correctly in your new lock. If however you are attempting to modify it, there are a few things to note, the modified lock will NOT be as secure as the original as it will now fit YOUR key as well as the donor cars key and any other key in between. The less modification needed to make YOUR key work, the more secure the lock will be. I was lucky as very little modification was required. When the key is inserted, all of the teeth should be flush with the body. As you can see in the picture above there is about 3 teeth that are not flush when MY key is inserted. All that is needed is for the teeth to be ground down flush, i did this with my dremel but it could also be done with a file. Test that it slides in the barrel when the key is inserted before you refit it and assemble in reverse order.
  5. Hi. I can't get the boot of my 2001 Arosa S open. The central locking won't unlock it it although it does make straining motor noises for a second or two when the car is locked or unlocked. Similarly, I can't get the key to rotate properly in the lock, and any rotation that does happen doesn't seen to do anything. I've not been able to use the key in the boot since I've owned the car though, so that's not new. The actual boot handle it self doesn't have much resistance to movement, it moves smoothly and springs closed when I let go, but it doesn't actually feel as though it's connected to anything mechanically. I can't remember what it felt like before, it might have always been like that. I've read that some of the VAG boot locking mechanisms are prone to jamming and need cleaning and lubricating periodically, but to do this I presumably need to get the bugger open. Anyone got any ideas? Would it be worthwhile to pull the interior plastic panel off of the boot from the inside of the car? Ta EDIT: got the interior trim off and had a poke about, the problem did indeed seem to be that parts of the mechanism were sticking enough to prevent them from springing back to where they should be. Also the white electronic actuator seems to be completely dead now, so until I manage to track down a replacement I've unhooked it from the manual locking mechanism.
  6. Put up a post a little while ago and mentioned that my car had been broken into but i havent had the time to replace the passenger side lock which has been smashed to bits by what i would assume was a screwdriver or something. What would i need to do to get a lock that matches my current key? Would i just need a lock with a different key just for that door? Cheers
  7. First forum, so be nice Basically I have 2 keys for my Lupo. The first key (main key) opens the passenger door, the boot and starts the ignition. The second key only unlocks the driver door and nothing else. This is a real pain swapping from one key to another, so I was wondering if there is a way to swap the barrels from the passenger door into the driver door?? I never use my passenger lock and it seems the best solution, unless anyone has any other ideas?? Thanks guys
  8. I have for a lupo/polo/3 door golf a lock set. Includes 1 key and the 2 door locks and the boot. Wanting £60
  9. Hi Guys! I'm a newbie to this site and wondered if you could help me with a serious issue i have with my lupo! The boot lock seems to be stuck open, either through a faulty barrel or corrosion! Any ideas how to get rid of the corrosion?? to save me having to get a new barrel or if worst comes to worst a new handle and lock. I couldn't get the key into the lock before but with a lot of WD40 i have got the key in, now it just won't turn!
