  5. Hi, thanks for responding. I have already taken the car back to quickfit who have told me there is nothing wrong with the alternator or the battery. I know the alternator is producing a voltage but i think it can still produce a voltage while draining the batter and charging it at the same time. I will still try this with my grandparents voltmeter though, thanks!

    Vacuum hose from carb to dizzy

    Found this in my Haynes. Looks to me like the carb goes underneath the dizzy and the top of the dizzy is connected to the side of the 3 way junction next to vacuum reservoir.
  7. First Welcome to the forum. Here's a guide on how to test you're alternator for various problems https://www.clubpolo.co.uk/topic/335902-testing-your-alternator/
  8. Hello all, hope everyone is staying safe and well while we wait out this virus. A few months ago I bought a used polo as specified above (59 bhp model) when initially buying the car it was in good working order and showed no signs of any issues/ fault codes. I won't go over all the problems I have had with the car as it has been a pain in the rear with lots of small issues here and there. The initial issue I had was the car feeling very sluggish. Poor acceleration and a very rough idle (not just your standard 3 cylinder idle) I felt like the power was being poorly transferred to the wheels, like I was driving an old diesel engine. So about 2 weeks ago I took the car to a local mechanic who I know personally, who told me that all the codes his diagnostics tool read point towards the battery (which I had had replacdd with a new one only a week before) the main fault code being P209700 - POST CATALYST FUEL TRIM SYSTEM BANK 1 TOO RICH. so I took the car back to quickfit to get the battery checked and it came back fully charged and healtyh, along with the alternator. After hearing this I decided to take it direct to VW for a £120 inspection to which they told me the car is absolutely fine. So I drive the car to work and back for two days and then the lockdown hits and she is parked on the driveway. 1 week later I try to start the car and get no crank whatsoever, no noise or movement from the car, no lights or electronics work at all. So I charge the battery to full drive it and the power delivery issue is gone completely. 2 days later I check the car again... This time the car barely starts and after about 15 seconds of intermittent stuttering from the engine it dies. I try it again the next day and it starts reluctantly but does not sputter, also drives well with little loss in power. My suspicion is that there is a parasitic drain from the alternator but at this point I'm not sure (especially seeing as VW gave it the all clear) I will email them to get it in for another inspection which I shan't be paying for... But in the meantime I'd really appreciate any help and advice. I have spend countless hours on Google and have found nothing of use. Sorry for turning this into a short story! Just very frustrated! P.S I have cleaned both the intake manifold and MAP sensor with the suitable chemicals. Reply Quote 1 - 1 of 1 Posts Write your reply...

    Nige, thanks so much for your help. The explanation is - I'm an idiot! A while ago I found some info on someone doing the seal replacement on a Golf with an 020 gearbox, and bookmarked it thinking it would be useful as a guide when we came to do the Polo. That was a while ago. I guess in the intervening time, I forgot that it wasn't a Polo (how did I do that!?) Our box is an AKY (we are lucky enough to have the original service schedule) So obviously we don't need those parts, so we are all set now. (Well except that the place I ordered the actual flange seals from is out of stock so we need to re-order those 😄) Thanks again for your help
  10. Hi all. Had to take off my carb, (weber 32 ibf,) 4and inlet manifold for another job. Found the refitting instructions for my carb and it says to connect the vacuum hose on the side of the carb to the vacuum unit on the dizzy, (83 breadvan,) but i'm not sure whether i need to connect it to the top of the vacuum unit or bottom. Can anyone shed any light on this please? Thank you for stopping by and helping if you can.

    And also started the mirror polishing off on the intake side of the carb’s, and now they’re ready to be rebuilt and have the final polish polish on them, and my next venture is figuring out how to sort out the vac advance dizzy, being at the moment it takeS it vacuum from one carb all intake ports at the same time, now they all have separate throttle so the pulse will be off with out connecting them all together, I got a idea in mind as to how I’m going to get round it problem, I’m thinking something to connect them all together in a mini vacuum plenum thing sitting above the manifolds😆.

    Start making the manifold up for carbs I’m happy with it so far, once I’m back at the W/shop after all this corona blows over, I’ll make them all in aluminium but for now I got make them in mild steel cause that all I can do from home😉.

    They are listed on an 89 Golf driveflanges http://www.oemepc.com/vw/part_single/catalog/vw/markt/RDW/modell/GOSY/year/1990/drive_standart/67/hg_ug/409/subcategory/99000/part_id/3691624/lang/e#sec_15 #15

    Well as you can see there's nothing like that shown in the parts listing, so might be something a gearbox rebuilder has fitted ??

    Cool, yeah match and couple other models were colour coded, wheeltrims too! Looks better black imho but hard to know whether keep original. Pierburgs are great when running right (have heard them referred to as poohburg). It's a great solid starting point, keep the pics coming.

    Does anyone know of a source for those little cap seals? I can't find the pesky things anywhere...... Please let me know if I should be posting that request in another section of the forum.

    Its got about 70,000 miles on it. Even had the original jack etc, looks like it's never been used. Sorry, the photos are not in order. We've actually painted the bumpers black, they were red when we bought the car, but were quite faded. It's a Polo 'Match' - does that explain why the bumpers were red? Wheels & mods - my son will have final say on that, it's his car 😀 We're torn between keeping it original or going for a few mods. We need to get a few little problems sorted before any mods. Forgot to say, we already did front discs and pads - safety first! Priority 1 is sorting out the gearbox oil leak. And then of course there's the Pieburg carb - she's running a bit rich.

    You planning wheels or any mods? I see black bumper in first pics then back to red 🙂🙂 Looks like a cracking wee car, many miles on it?
