Any VW OEM parts distributor, for example your nearest VW dealer should be able to order it (actually Audi, ҆koda and any other VAG dealer might be able as well), delivery¬†might take some time, because they don't storage all oem parts¬†available in shop.¬†

Pretty much what they told me. But what I got out of them is apparently mechanical  parts are available but everything else is not so much. It might be worth trying the link I provided  earlier.

Call few more VAG dealers, they should gladly order OEM items for you, might like advance payment offer, however the parts can not be returned, thats might cause unwillingness to order them for consumers.

With or without electric motor, both versions are available more than 1000 OEM units, but You have plenty of aftermarket parts available, check part codes on https://7zap.com/en/part/VAG/6X0837461A/ , some of these should be available else where.

These brands appears available: VAN WEZEL; ESEN SKV; BLIC; TOPRAN; MIRAGLIO; MAGNETI MARELLI; VALEO.

Are you sure the code you provided is correct. The only i reason i say this is Gti ones are apperently specific. Same as 3L

 

@lupogtiboy should be able to confirm that

I think these are for regular lupo, 6E0 837 461 B is windows regulator with electric motor, coasts around 100£, 6X0 837 461 C is windows regulator without motor, coasts around 25£.

6X0 947 569 is obsolete and VW UK aren't showing any in stock, however it is showing as a Heritage part, so you can get one via VW Heritage based in Shoreham

https://classic.heritagepartscentre.com/

Type the part number into the search section and they are able to order one. They can do this for any part that is showing as being a VW Classic part, signified with the letter 'c' next to the part on ETKA. I managed to get a genuine GTI radiator grille from there last year, took around a month to arrive, but was cheaper than the original VW price!

@lupogtiboy should be able to confirm that

O/S window motor is 6X0 959 801 B

N/S window motor is 6X0 959 802 B

The motors fit all Lupo's, it's the regulators that are GTI/3L specific

GTI N/S/F regulator - 6E0 837 461 B, obsolete from VW, not showing as a classic part either

GTI O/S/F regulator - 6E0 837 462 B, showing as available in Germany to order

Neither come with motors

That is brilliant. Thank you. After going to the garage this morning it is working now but the motor maybe tempermental. Not the Mech.

 

GTI N/S/F regulator was the one i was having issues getting anywhere.

Ok. this is getting interesting. So i have inputted the numbers i think i need for the grill parts

6E0 854 955 (i believe is the support)

3B0 853 601 B (the emblem i require)

6E0 853 679 C (Gti with silver i badge)

 

Whats strange is i can order the grill. But yet the badge parts that go with it i cannot.

 

Also tried some other obslote parts (known)

Aluminum bonnet - nope

Lupo inscription badge - also nope

 

Odd you think?

Heritage can only get parts that have the letter 'c' next to them on ETKA, this signifies they are a 'classic' part. Not all obsolete parts are made 'classic' parts by VW, is all a supply and demand thing.
