  1. Past hour

    That guide sleeve should be parallel, if there is a 'step' in the length of it, then it needs to be replaced. You are sure that you have put the driven plate in the correct way round - aren't you? Back to your original problem (the noise) - Always a difficult thing to diagnose without actually hearing it. Did it come on gradually, or suddenly? Could it simply be that you are being over cautious - maybe you could listen to a similar vehicle and compare the sound. It would seem that you may have found an honest gearbox specialist - many would have sold you some expensive and perhaps, unnecessary work. Regards
  3. I am struggling a bit to follow what you say, and judging by the lack of replies, so are other people. Do you know if the fuel RETURN pipe is clear of obstruction? - If you are not sure, I would suggest that you (1) disconnect the return pipe (2) remove the fuel tank cap (3) use a tyre pump (cycle tyre pump will do) to blow through the pipe back to the tank. If that pipe is clear, I would then (1) depressurise the system (2) remove the fuel pressure regulator (3) clean it and put it back. If you have had the injector out, did you check/replace the two 'O' rings (Large one at the top, small one at the bottom.- There should also be a gasket under the injector 'cover'. If the points that I have outlined do not make much sense, maybe you could send us a picture of your SPI unit, we may be able to spot if there is a problem with its assembly. Regards

  5. Low Oil Pressure 1996 6n AEX

    The valve inside the filter is only intended to open if the filter itself becomes blocked (through not being changed often enough) All that it does is bypass the filter, so the engine still gets oil, albeit unfiltered oil (which is marginally better than no oil at all.) Sorry about not replying earlier. Regards
  6. Combustion chamber in head is liked by ze Germans. If you use standard sized 122mm rods you need pistons with same compression height as HZ? Motorbike pistons (cbr1000rr 2007- is 76mm bore I think) and custom rods?
  7. Yes I have - but it’s a completely different tone to the normal parking sensor sound. Also, it makes it when radio is off
  8. Thanks for that, I’m gonna use the head with the combustion chamber in the head so that means I’m looking for flat top pistons! I’m after some that are 77mm, forged and also slipper pistons ( short skirt)! Then use these Conrods out of the g40 as they should be the same? which are steel an give me the ability to rev higher: https://www.maxrpm.de/Forging-conrod-H-shaft-for-Polo-G40-high-strength-to-9000-RPM-4-pieces?gclid=Cj0KCQjw1q3VBRCFARIsAPHJXrG1Saj6-EwjW66NQScN4Ntk5ZBnmpC7-UY8L9APx522ISaeg9E9XO8aAqJvEALw_wcB

  11. US Spec Polo 6n


    I'm back!!!!
  13. Have you got rear parking sensors ?
  14. Those wiseco forged oversize pistons are very expensive. Worrabout Mazda 323 E3 series (1980-87) pistons 77mm as std? https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/PISTON-FOR-MAZDA-323-FAMILIA-E3-ENG-1-3-1980-1987/162070378273
  15. Okay, haven't posted in ages but have the strangest of problems and need the worlds polo brain power - 64 plate polo 6R - 18k miles. When cycling the key ( it also does it when you reconnect the battery ) the strings 4 "chirps" come from the passenger side of the dash. Always normally 4 chirps, normally the same length but sometimes vary. Sounds like a muted buzzer. No faults in VAGcom. Car starts, drives and appears to work perfectly. Whether its related or not but the interior lights have packed up. No power at the connector in the light unit. Now the manual seems to suggest the interior light fuses are shared with the left and right hand car exterior lights. All other lights on the car work fine, and it appears all the fuses are intact. Ive attached a video of the noise whilst cycling the key - FIRST TO GUESS THE NOISE CORRECTLY WINS A VIRTUAL CERTIFICATE " Best strange polo noise detective in UK" Thanks
  16. Are you sure it is the cat causing the emissions to be high. What Polo is it year wise.
  17. MK2 polo engine

    I would love to see a turbocharged ABD, I have always imagined them as bad on fuel, lazy, and unreliable in every possible way. I don't know why VW made it SPI when they were clearly able to use MPI (which they did literarily a year later). I can't wait to see what comes of this! :)

On a free day it took no time to call these guys. Spoke to some friendly member of staff who gave me a quote beating everyone else with my mods after a few mins. Was a great service so definite thumbs up." domhart10, Volvo OC "I have been with Chris Knott for several years (had 1 year elsewhere for all my sins) and I have never had 1 issue with them. I would highly recommend giving them a call and they will do all they can to get you the best deal possible."

  22. need advice on how to remove the heat shield around the top of the cat. car failed MOT on emmissions and a new cat has been ordered. to get the old one off the lambda sensor seems to be in the way and because of the shield you cannot get a spanner on it, any ideas? think this may be the same for polos but no answers online form what i can find thanks

  24. Anybody out there? TDI people?? Car has now decided to move when the clutch is down in gear. Bite point on floor, so not fully disengaging.. Feel like driving into a wall Slave cylinder, bearing, adjustment,
  25. Mk2 polo breadvan, full space frame, 1043cc modified engine!

    Yeah all the blocks are the same. The G40 block has some extra webbing for added strength, but I'm not sure it would be needed on your build. As for boring it out, I believe you can go as big as a 77mm piston.
  26. MK2f White Breadvan 1.3SPI Breaking Somerset
