Hello all, it’s been many a year since I’ve posted a project thread but might as well start one to look back and see how much money I throw away lol. Not to long ago I got rid of my 6n2, bought a 9N that lasted a day then got this Arosa. I got the car for a mere £220 with only 59k! Granted the interior is awful and the body work albeit the most solid shell I’ve probably ever owned just in need of some polish and TLC. In fairness to this car it has one of the cleanest MOT histories I’ve ever seen and it was first registered 01/01/01 so I had to take it. Up to now this is what I’ve done: Stainless steel manifold 9n 1.2 downpipe slightly modded into a decat 9n 1.2 throttle body because it has no charcoal canister pipe intake Removed charcoal canister Bosch Super 4s (for Corsa C but exactly the same length etc) Clear side indicators from 9n De badged boot De wipered Black pit bike foam air filter 14” 6J TSW Evo’s ET20 Blue D shape steering wheel Removed front ARB I recently bought a 6n flocked dash in the hope of turning my hideous grey interior into a black one but found out after chopping up the Arosa dash, it sits higher than standard and is to short on the back. But sh*t happens right? Also got a lower strut brace to be fitted later on. As I lost a few 100 on the 9N it was only right to use some of its parts, was surprised the TB was bang on same fitment and plug. The clear indicators just looked better imo, I ended up cutting my original downpipe just where it joins the flexi and cut the 9N downpipe at the flexi and welded it together, still need to cut and extend it a few inches before it bends up as it’s too close to the subframe but will sort that later on. Couldn’t believe I got £90 for the cat so car only stands me at 130! The alloys are from my 6n2, got them at a steal price too, the first time I let my so called friend drive he scuffed them! Lasted nearly 30 years without a mark until then but they would benefit from a refurb. Been offered a Sparco FIA cage for cheap too but can’t warrant it with such little power aha. The same guy selling that has a ABF engine polished and ported, with coil packs from I believe the TT? (Also the same guy whom I got dash from and lower brace) With modded subframe and drive shafts but would need some loom etc. Just not sure as I want to keep this as light as possible and always wanted to turbo the little 1l for a laugh. Plans: Fix broken gear selector!! Vented discs Better seats/ full strip out Coilovers Nicer/smaller steering wheel Replace O/S indicator (lens fell off) T15 turbo?? On 5-6psi il have to set up a new photobucket account and get some more pics up soon! Feel free to tell me I’m mad, my estate already has 😂
Hi all, in need of some urgent help as I’m currently stuck. The selector that moves about and is attached to the gearbox with 2 bolts and connects to the mechanism coming off the gear shifter snapped tonight whilst in second. I can’t locate the part anywhere for the life of me apart from attached to gearboxes for sale. The car in question is a mk1 X reg Arosa with the ALD engine. I’ve been reading all night on different gearboxes but there’s seems to be a multitude of answers. So basically my questions are what is the part called? How much are they? and what gearboxes are a direct fit to the ALD? My release bearing doesn’t sound to great so I don’t mind replacing the gearbox and clutch at the same time as motorway cruising is a fuel killer as I’m sure you all know. I’ve been reading the 1.4 8v box fits? As I’ve seen people say they have the 1.0 box on the 1.4? I’ve found a 1.4 8v 6n box relatively close and what I’m assuming would be cheaper than a new part.
