  1. Hi All, just picked up my first Arosa and I love it! It came with a driver side window that wouldn't move at all, having previously been sticking halfway. My father and I tried a bunch of things I've seen suggested on various forums, including here, greased the runners, oiled the cables, greased the worm gear, etc, nothing presented a permanent solution, the window would work ok, but once it met any resistance it would just refuse to go any further. Switchgear was ok. After a while we had it so that it would move, but only up or down one step at a time, and you had to taker your finger off the button and press it again to get it to move another half an inch. Then it just stopped again and the relay would just click, as before, no movement. Having fished the glass out of the door and taken the mechanism back off, we tried something new. Turns out the problem was in the motor. The contacts were A-OK but there was a bunch of carbon dust in and around there and, importantly, the plastic/brass ring that the motor speed sensors pick up on. Pulled the shaft including the windings out of the gearbox and pulley housing, removed the motor casing, and blasted everything out with an air line. Greased the shaft ends up, put it back together and it works perfectly! I guess the dust was causing shorts or making the electronics think the window had jammed or something, thus preventing movement for safety. Anyway, just thought I'd share in case anyone has had a similar problem but not been able to fix theirs, I don't think I've seen this solution posted anywhere. Apologies if it was common knowledge. Love my new '01 Arosa S 1.0, love the forums! Thanks, Tango
  2. HI All Best you sick of this same old problem regarding the window regulator and motor on a lupo as this seems to be a standard problem with the lupos. I have got a new regulator and motor from CT parts for the drivers side window. My problem is this is not a OE part from VW and it only has two wires from the motor. The oe plug has 8 wires in that there is a black and brown one live. Have any of you rewired this and if so do you remember what wires are joined together to make it all work off the switch? I am at the point of getting a new 4way switch and rewiring the whole lot as I can only get it to go up and not down. Change the wires a round in every combernation I can think of and now Im stumped???? NEED HELP PLEASE PLEASE any sparkys????
  3. I'm wondering if someone can help me, i have a 1999 1.4s lupo and the driver's side window reg has gone kaput. It's been knackered since i've pretty well owned the car so i have taken it out and had ordered another not realising there are 2 types. The one i had ordered was a 2pin type, whereas my original was a plug with multiple pins inside. I think i may have finally found the one i need but i just want to make sure as it says " one touch" and i have no idea if mine was! this is the reg i think i need : http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/350558509053?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649#ht_2254wt_1270 If someone could help me i would really appreciate it as i currently dont have a window lol. Cheers
