Thread: Lupo 3l -need help

  1. #91
    Well thanks Rab for definite clarification. I kind of thought the A2 1.2tdi and Lupo 3L front shocks could be the same... But, if i took Bilstein shocks, i would need the new springs as well. So I thought, Ok, provided that I got the new springs as well, it would still be a lot cheaper... But what about the height of the car after the fronts are fitted? The car could sit higher than normal due to its lighter engine and front end, and look and handle like crap possibly? I wasnt willing to risk that.. So i ordered the original ones, as expensive as they are.... They should arrive by the end of next week...

    Why would you need new springs, if the originals are OK? The shocks should be a straight replacement.

    The guy who did the replacement on Audi A2 1.2Tdi had to change the springs as well, i think..... not sure...

    But I ordered originals, so I wouldn't need new springs for sure. Interesting, rear original shocks are in perfect condition, after 225k km and 16 years...

    New shocks installed, and the difference is night and day. Awesome! Now, if you could help me with one more problem, which has been there on and off for a while, and is very annoying. It has to do with rear brake drums. When I apply the brakes, i hear the clicking as well as some rubbing. If i apply only the handbrake lightly, there is no clicking. BUT this doesnt happen all the time. It starts after say 20 minutes of driving, so i guess it has to do something with the increase in temperature.. I have had several mechanics take a look at the drums and they found everything Ok inside. I thought maybe the drums are warped, but if they were, wouldnt the clicking noise be there all the time? What I found strange is that my wheels do not spin freely when rotated by hand, which leads me to believe that maybe this has to do something with a bad wheel hub assembly. Then again, if the bearing was bad, wouldnt I hear humming and bad bearing noise all the time. My ride is very quiet.... Any ideas?

    You can easily test the hub by removing the drum. Are the six nylon pads between the shoes and the backplate all present? Because the brake drum material is a composite, there is not much shoe movement, so everything has to be precisely set up.

    We may have found the problem. There are two coils springs inside, and the left one was making contact with the drum, there are signs of scraping, so we replaced it.... Hope it is solved. I have problem with the rear shock absorbers. I am trying to find replacement, I know there is, but I have failed with Bilstein BNE 6780. They would fit, but the shock when extended is approximately 1.5cm lower than the OEM shock! Any ideas about the replacement. I am confused. The OEM part number is 6E0513025B.... According to this, Bilstein should fit because 6E is discontinued and replaced by 6X, and the shorter Bilstein ahocks sypport 6X0513025B.... wtf?!

    Also, some more problems. I hear a hissing kind of ssssss sound at idle emenating from the back of the engine bay, most likely turbo area, maybe the hydraylic components area. It sounds almost like a worn out belt or alternator pulley, but the cambelt service was done a month ago, and the noise is clearly not in the alternator area. I thought it was some tensioner or pulley but the problem remained after the service. It is not a rattle more like sssss broken by a notmal tdi rattle. Any ideas?

    And one more thing, while trying to locate the above noise i saw that VNT actuator is pretty hard to move by hand. I hooked up vag com and it showed some boost error that is not intermittent?! But there are no limp modes and the car is very nippy to drive... No hissing under acceleration...
    There is one intermittent error related to gearbox. Code is 00511. No issues with the gearbox. Lots of questions sorry
