  1. Rear wiper motor stopped spaying and started leaking into the tailgate, new motor £120 + ouch, Ebay £35 much better, arrived wel boxed didn't work GRRRRR. so simple rebuild instructions for the rear wiper motor. Remove the wiper arm, carefully pull off the plastic washer jet while it's still on the car as it's much easier. remove the trim panel, remove the hose and the connector. undo the 3 nuts drop off the motor. Remove the back panel use TORX bit. if like me your spay tube is broken in half you will need to drill out the tube which is brass at 3.2mm. ( It fails because the steel rusts expands grips the tube and snaps it when it wipes then it starts leaking) I used the new motor as a donor to replace the tube, drill out the steel at 3.5mm or 3.75 if you have it. I didn't so I used wet and dry wrapped around a 1mm drill to smooth out the bore to get a good sliding fit. Plenty of grease on tube and re-assemble and re-fit.

  4. Hi Everyone My driver's window regulator broke about a year ago, but due to work commitments and not having the time to, I have only recently replaced it, once it was replaced I discovered that the motor was very weak, I put this down to it not being used of a year and it had began to seize, so I have also replaced that. With these both changed, I'm still experiencing problems where the window won't go back up and on the rare occasion I get it to, it doesn't have the strength to get to the top and just either stops or goes back down. To be clear the window opens like normal but won't close as it should. I'm not sure what could be causing the problem, I removed the window seals and checked their condition, they do seem to be aged, but when I operated the window with them removed that problem was still there. I also checked the motor and it was getting very hot from the load. I'm concerned it could be a wiring issue? or maybe I've been an idiot and fitted the components wrong? Any help would be greatly appreciated Andy
  5. Hi, We're currently competing in the BTRDA Forest Rally Championship in a 1.4l Lupo and thought we'd share some pictures of the car in action. Social Media links: http://www.facebook.com/carrsturdyrally http://www.twitter.com/carrsturdyrally Nick Carr & Joe Sturdy
  6. Ok, i've had this issue for a while, right window stopped working and I only hear the switches clicking - both mine and the other one - what i don't know is what should i change, regulator only or the motor as well? What sign is the clicking noise, means that the motor is working? Need help, please.
  7. Hi all, Can anyone give any advise as to why the switch on the driver's side for the passenger window allows me to move the window up but not down. Also, the driver side window sometimes sticks/goes back down instead of up. Is it just a case of needing a replacement motor for both? Thanks in advance.
  8. I have a 1.4i sport lupo 16v, currently both my windows arn't working. I've tried changing the fuses so I know it's not that. Whenever I try put them down or up they make a small single click noise as if there trying to move but they can't! Is there an easy way to fix this or will I need new window motors?
  9. I am having problems with my starter not turning the engine properly, the symptoms are strange: It grinds but the flywheel if not damaged The power drops to 8v, sometimes cutting the power to the stereo loosing presets etc... After about 2 to 3 seconds of grinding noise the car turns and starts straight away. It is a re-manufactured bosch starter The battery is brand new and capable of 670amps After the car is started I can stop it and it starts fine every time after, then if I let it sit for an hour the same thing happens! I thought it would be the solenoid getting a little stuck but I don't think that the motor would spin then! Please help I am very confused
  10. Hi This is my first post so sorry if i seem at all noobish, ive had my little lupo sport for just over a year and so far shes been a dream, however in the last week its all gone wrong, my drivers side window is stuck down! the switch wont do anything on the drivers side but will do UP the passenger side, it wont do it down!, i have even tried buying a replacement switch and still its the same problem. also, the central locking for the drivers door has gone, and my left window wiper has gone, this all happened simultaniously, was just wondering if anyone knows if these are common faults, or how much they are to get repaired, or even the best place to take it to thanks so mch
  11. I have one big problem with my electric window on the driver side. Yes, i know that there is alot of threads out there with the same problem but i've tryed almost everything .. The window on the driverside had no problem going down, but never up. Not a singel itch of working when i pressed the button. Everytime i had to go over on the passagerside, put the key and turn and hold .. and whips the window went up. Almost 2 years had passed and i told my self, now i need to get this thing fixed. Ended up with the motor gave up and went to heaven .. Well well, a new electric motor and 275£ less money on the account i finally would get this thing working .. But with my luck, of course i would have the same problem! What now? Drove to VW dealer and orderd a new button .. 2 days later the time was in .. i replace the old button with a new one and pressed the button .. the windows went down, no problem. Pressed so it would go up, nothing. The window went down again .. tested the new button for the passager side, no problem. Up and down .. perfect. But the driverside only goes down .. dosent matter if i press up or down .. I haven't checked the electric yet .. Anyone who has a clue whats the problem?
