  1. Hello! I am new but old, just got myself a little run about lupo! I haven't been on this forum since 2008 when I bought my first one! Like many I am here to seek advice on some faults first before I can make it my own. It's a 2004 1.7SDI. Perfect for daily workhorse life. I got it of a great family who had lost time and money trying to diagnose the faults. I wil upload a picture. Apparently it could need a new ECU but could be the relay 109 that I have been researching. The faults were cleared and came back each time. Any help appreciated!
  2. Anyone know the recommended battery specification for my lupo SDI? Seen threads on GTI and other petrol models, but I know diesel usually need different spec batteries. My battery is totally dead now, to the point where I can jump it to start but car just turns off after about 10 seconds. Thanks
  3. Lupo SDi 1.7 AKN engine code. Can You Help? My Lupo suffers from excessive vibration, its not the normal vibration, but more, hopefully someone has had a similar experience and solved it? This is the second SDI Lupo I have owned, in comparison, the previous one ran like a 'Swiss watch' until the engine management gave up. The L & R engine mount appear fine, I recently changed the rear gearbox mount (dogbone) while underneath replacing the center & rear silencers. The front small 'knuckle joint was completely shot, but the larger rear rubber mounting was ok, I hope this would solve the problem, not such luck, it is now much worse! At tick over (950rpm) is unbearable, 20mph plus better, but the mind-numbimng vibration comes back around 60-65mph, over 73mph its fine. Tricky to drive anywhere like this! I initially beleived the problem may be clutch related, as the previous owner made a number of 'schoolboy' reassembly errors, not doing mount bolts up properly etc, however there are no other clutch related symptoms whatsoever. Please share any ideas you may have about the cause would be fantastic. Gary7
  4. Proper struggling to find a new one of these. Part Num is 6N0199851AH which is for the SDI I don't mind it being aftermarket brand like Moog or Febi etc Am I gonna end up at TPS..? Thanks
  5. Anyone ever straight piped an SDI? I've heard the backbox can be restrictive on it, would removing it free up some more mpg? My main concern is noise, my downpipe has rusted away and separated, its extremely loud. If I put a straight through from manifold all the way to the rear would it still be extremely loud because it's NA? My 1.9tdi isn't that loud straight piped, but that's probably because it's turbo'd. i know someone will have done it.. cheers
  6. Hi all, So I've been reading things (yeh I know), I'm just in the process of renewing all my brakes and lowering the sdi on coilovers. I've read some things (on here) that if you lower then the rears could lock on braking due to them overcompensating for increased load on the rear..? I've never heard this before but my car doesn't have ABS. Has anyone had to adjust their brake bias to counteract this? If so how? Or is this all a load of BS? I wouldn't normally be bothered but I don't play with brakes! Cheers
  7. VW Lupo 1.7 SDI For Sale It’s with a heavy heart that I’ve decided to get rid of my lupo 1.7 sdi with it having failed it’s mot recently. i’ve been quoted £400 to get it repaired to pass (problems being shock absorbers, and suspension dust covers needing replacing, high labour cost jobs apparently). I just don’t use the car enough to warrant spending the money, and have neither the time or the skills to sort it out, and would rather it went to a good home and someone else got some use out of it. Year: 2002 mileage: 112k miles colour: light blue location: Didcot MOT: recently failed, but old one still valid for a few days (till end of jan 2019). the good: in good condition, zero rust anywhere, starts instantly every time. I’ve had this car for 12 years and have not mistreated it in the slightest. the bad: needs a damn good clean. Paint peeling off rear bumper. shallow dent in passenger door, windscreen wash system has slow leak, electric windows work but are sometimes temperamental. Price £400, but am open to offers
  8. So after a fail on the MOT and deciding to sell the car for parts I have done some serious soul searching and have decided to keep the Lupo and put it back on the road. The list of jobs seems endless but this is it: Brake peddle not retuning to the up position. Have to lift with foot for the last 1cm to turn off the brake lights No reception on the radio this is a aftermarket head-unit (Do i need a signal booster?) New suspension and bushes all round (What is the cheapest way to do this?) Blown exhaust in various locations (What parts do i need for a full system) Cam Belt and Water pump (Total confused, What kit do i need and where is the best/ cheapest place for this?) Brake disks pads and hoses More to follow. Tighten up the gear linkage. (At some point) Gear box flush and oil change (Is there a liquid for this like engine flush? and best fluid to replace it with) Where to start and get this done? I am sure there is a list of parts as long as my arm. I will update this as it goes along. All feel free to chip in with any advice and help.
  9. Hi all, lurked for ages but finally pulled the trigger! Been wanting an SDI for quite a while and the right one popped up less than 3 miles from home last week! Went to view in the dark after work and decided it was good enough for what I needed. Red 04 plate SDI S with around 170k on the clock, full service history with many stamps and cambelt/water pump done last year. Drives really well and is totally standard, couple of issues such as creaking clutch pedal.. I'm assuming pedal box, do VW still cover (or partially cover) this job under warranty? Will probably change all the braking components and fit some coilovers and perhaps change wheels (wouldn't mind some banded steels). Other then that it's going to remain pretty standard as it's the daily mile muncher whilst my S3 sits on the driveway. Couple questions, how can I tell if it has ABS? And does anyone know of any insurance companies that will mirror my no claims discount onto the lupo? I seem to be getting quotes for more than the S3! And that's stage 2+ declared! Will try to get some photos up soon. Thanks
  10. Make: VW Model: Lupo SDI MOT: 28/11/18 (Fail) TAX: £30 p.y Milage: 105,000 I am sad to have to do this but I am going to have to let my Lupo go as it has failed its MOT today I have attached the list of faults. Other than what is listed the car is in not to bad condition. It is clean and drives well. I am not in the position to break it for parts. If I had the time and space I would fix it myself but this is not an option for me. Location: Salisbury Wiltshire Price: £650
  11. Does anyone know the correct Bosch number for an SDi coolant fan? The V Dub no. is 6N0 959 455E a 200/60w 2-speed as far as I can tell. The only Bosch one I've found is 0 130 107 291 which has two pins on the connector making it a single speed motor. My current fan as fitted (a Temic) has 3 pins as has the thermostatic switch on the radiator. Whilst asking, can anyone advise on the easiest way to get the fan out as it appears blocked by the top hose on the SDi?
  12. Selling as a whole for spares/repair - not breaking as not possible. Sad to be parting with this Lupo. Front sub frame has damage to it (palm sized hole and rust) advised too expensive to repair. Make: VW Model: Lupo SDI MOT: December 2018 Engine size: 1.7 Fuel type: Diesel Drives well. One lady owner since 2006. Serviced and looked after. Reliable, it has never failed to start. Yellow, 224,000 miles. Recent clutch and tyres. Cam belt 170,000. Rear axle replaced April 2014. Both door locks have failed. Damage to frame is the reason for sale. Location: Cornwall Price: £300 ono.
  13. VW Lupo 1.7 SDI Yellow Clean 9 Months MOT no advisories 1.7 Diesel 100,000 Miles Good runner. New brakes all round New clutch put in 2000 miles ago.

  14. Hi there, I need help with a very loud and distressing wheel speed noise. It's there wether in gear or not, only with the wheels turning. Clutching has no effect on it. It sounds, as far as I can tell (and a couple of different passengers) to be coming from the front passenger side wheel, with some vibration noticeable through the foot well. I've had the front up and listened with a Dowell while the wheels are driving, and the gearbox and drivers side knuckle make a kind of sshsshssh noise which I would associate with dry or very slightly worn bearings. While the passenger side knuckle makes a crunchy clunkey noise. Thing is that I've now changed the p side bearing twice, and the knuckle (I scragged the original) and drive shaft with no definite change. having done the bearing both times found the hub nut not tightened all the way after a few miles, despite Having wound the Bearing in with a puller and torqued up the nut. Car is 2001, 115k and the noise was audible but mild 10k ago and now is incredibly insistent. I need Help as I'm about to drive from Somerset to Wales, towing 700k, and don't want a failure on route. Or a catastrophic gearbox failure. And would love to take it to 200+k I guess I'm asking what it might be, or what I did wrong fitting the bearings to cause them to fail prematurely (10's or hundreds of miles) fag bearings All help greatly appreciated, any questions just ask. I could make a recording but when I have the exhaust shielding rattle and console squeak largely drowns it out. Thanking you kindly, Joshhert
  15. So in the tradition of a newbie, I'm here for help please! This is my 2nd Lupo SDi, the first had done over 250k so I know they should go on forever, which is making this problem even more frustrating! So 1.7 SDi went to start one morning a few weeks ago and it turned over but immediately cut out with a whiny/grindy noise. And has done the same thing every time I've tried to start it since. There is plenty of diesel in it so it isn't fuel starvation. Battery is turning it over. I'm all out of ideas, any suggestions? Could pop it in the garage as a last resort, but I wanted to pick your brains first...any ideas?

    WANTED - SDi gearbox

    My SDi's gearbox has let go in the usual fashion and so I'm searching for a replacement. Does anyone have one for sale? Thank-you.
  17. Hi guys, II require my cambelt changing on my Sdi 1.7 lupo. Is anyone around the Derby area, or I can travel who can change it for me please? The garage wanted £400 and I'm not prepared to pay that price. Thanks
  18. Self explanatory really, does anyone know if an sdi slam panel would fit straight in into a 1L E lupo? Thanks
  19. WANTED TDI OR SDI WITH THE £30 ROAD TAX VERSION AS CLOSE TO YORKSHIRE AS POSSIBLE THANK YOU
  20. 2002 VW Lupo 1.7 SDI black for sale with 147k miles good runner with 5 months MOT left also taxed so ready to drive away. Had a second hand gearbox along with a new clutch on Feb 2016 that had done 71k miles. Cambelt and timing belt changed on Dec 2015 last serviced sept 2015. Fuel filter and air filter changed in summer bought oil filter but haven't had time to change the oil. 4 alloy R15 wheels came with car not to everyone's taste. Good tread on all tires except right front passenger which was a remould (see pic) runs well and is a reliable workhorse. Fixed heater which didn't work when I got the car (only worked on no4 but now all works) passenger window doesn't work possibly dodgy motor or window runners haven't had time to sort it out. Central locking works 90% of the time. Also had some respraying to cover up car park scrapes on passenger wings it's not pretty but covers it up. Open to offers looking for £900.
  21. hi guys, currently my box is DXQ. can i fit one of the other boxes to my lupo SDI such as the DED, ETF or FFV? thank you!

Any one got Experiance of this problem it's causing the acceleration to be slow and have hardly any power.
  23. Sunroof hasn't worked since I've had the car. I switched the 25a fuse with another, and it wasn't that. So I pulled down the sunroof trim in the roof and after removing the sunroof control, it seems that the two wiring looms are different shapes/sizes. Does anybody have any idea whats gone on here, because I'm stumped?! The wiring block in the headlining: The connection on the back of the sunroof dial:
  24. Morning all, bought myself a little yellow Lupo 1.7SDI a couple of weeks ago and so far I'm really liking it! I've always had a big thirsty car and a little fun car for a few hundred quid to use as a daily and I'm loving the current combination and find myself always driving the Lupo now. So easy to park, drive and dead cheap to run (£25 to fill up). It has a couple of little niggles which I'm trying to sort - a strange problem with the sunroof plus the fact I can't open the boot with the key or handle -__- ,so will post about these in the near future. I've had a skim through the forum and everything looks very helpful so thought I'd join and post. Anyway, I don't want to get a "this thread is useless without pics" reply so here we are...
  25. Hi guys im new to the "club" and i was just wondering if anyone would know any simple modifications for a Vw Lupo SDI, im 16 and have been in the motor vehicle industry for some time now so just looking for some easy and simple mods that make the car look alot better thanks
