I'm interested in doing the mk5 ect. Boot badge retrofit. does anyone know what sizeD diameter badges are available? What options of fitment is there? I know you can cut and shut a mk5 badge with a square extra surround from the mk5 boot. I'm interested into how casperGTi did his as it looks like he made the hole to fit but I'm interested how people have kept them water tight and muting on the inside. Also how many people have wired the central locking in and is it controlled on a separate button? Any help is welcome. Pictures appreciated too. Thanks Keelan
Ok so the gearbox is pretty much finished after 122k miles, pretty sure it's the pinion bearing. Standard symptoms such as incredible whining noise in 3rd 4th and 5th. Need my car as quickly as possible so will replace first with cheap 1.4s box if I can't find a sport one quick enough. Then I will attempt to rebuild my sport box over the next few months then swap them out again. I won't swap the clutch because it was only changed about 20k miles ago but the release bearing is a little noisy so I wanted to swap that. Also the last time I had my gearbox out there is a metal sleeve that sits over the input shaft of the gearbox which if I remember correctly the release bearing fits over. This had worn so badly last time it was rubbing on the input shaft of the box. So my question is, will this sleeve be the same for the sport and non sport box? And are the release bearings the same? I just want to make sure I order the right parts so i don't run in to any problems when taking changing everything over. Also just in general, will there be any compatibility issues with using a non sport box? I assumed that all the 085 boxes would be interchangeable. P.S. If you have a box in decent condition for sale sport or non sport please pm me.
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.
