    • FOR SALE
    • USED

    Multi coloured Polo 6N1 1.6 GL (AEE) automatic 40000 miles, Alloy wheels, electric front windows, sunroof, power steering, MOT October, just had new spark plugs, HT leads, Bosch rotor arm, Bosch distributor cap, air and cabin filters plus 2 new tyres on the front, new headlight bulbs, replaced the central locking pump for a working one. Sadly it's not a real Harlequin, the paint job looks ok from about 10 ft, but up close there are some blemishes, but mechanically it's fine. Automatic gearbox so is easy to drive, and being the 1.6 is still nippy in modern traffic. I have a couple of boxes of different spare parts that can go with the car or not , lights, switches air box, few other odds and sods, you don't have to take them though. I fitted a Kenwood stereo with usb, aux and also Bluetooth so I can listen to spotify etc. Any questions please ask, any low ball offers will be ignored. Sold as seen V5 present, only 1 set of keys

    Mk2 Heater Blower not working

    You want the 3-pronged oblong wire wound on ceramic resistor for Mk2. I think you could wire in a modern flat 4 pin green one not using one of the tap points. Full speed is straight 12volts. The other connections are taps for lower speed with simple potential divider circuit, as far as I can tell. So long as the low speed is not too little voltage to set motor moving it should be possible. If you do, make sure it is firmly mounted so it can't come loose and short circuit. I've got a PulseWidth controller stashed in a box somewhere that I've been intending to fit to allow any speed and off with the right kind of on/off volume control switch.

    i also wasted money on an expensive electric bike carb pump. ive also done rear brake conversion with the 6n2 gear. rears run hot though. ive got the brake disc dust shields on them so there is no air flow to them

    Hi im a new driver with a 1.0 6n2 im currently paying £1700 with a blackbox ,, do you do new drivers insurance??
  8. I've bought some after market plastic arch trim as on these polo's theres a lot of rust on the rear arch. If I remove the rust and get it to steel from the outside, do I have to remove the rust from the inside? Would this mean there is no option but to cut out the rust and re-weld another arch in? Where would I get these arches from, although i'd rather find a easier option. Thanks

    What are the fault codes currently? Could be worth your while finding and putting a finger over the PCV pressure equalising port (while engine is idling, fully warmed up), as a way of detecting leakage there. If it is leaking, blocking that with a finger will have dramatic results, if not it won't. Careful of aux belt. Should be something like this, where the arrow points, I think:

    AAU to NZ engine replacement

    Thanks very much dvderlm for all the information, much appreciated. A good suggestion about dropping the sump off and cleaning the pick up etc. I’ll remove the friction plate and inspect for wear being that it’s all accessible. I’m also hoping that the wiring will not have to be modified in any way? I’ll go with the inlet and SPI unit from the AAU for the time being and hope for the best, any ideas on a 4 into 1 exhaust manifold? I’m guessing I’ll have to keep the cat as it’ll fail it’s MOT without it. Thanks again, Rich.

    This has also been done and no real differnce in redings. It has just had redex in the tank and a good hard run up to temp for 20 mins as it was thought it may have carbon deposite under a valve but again still has uneven tickover and epc/emlo returns but go out when ignition is turned onand off.

    I would suggest the next step as a compression test, quick and cheap. If cylinder 3 shows a marked difference in compression, then might be the time to think about head removal.

    AAU to NZ engine replacement

    Engine mount rubbers? Gearbox selector shaft seal and accompanying oil change is a bit easier off the car, drain as much as you can, then refill with box tilted using jug for the specced volume less 1/4 litre. Bring back to level and top up gently until reaches the fill hole. Makes the box a bit heavier to lift, but far nicer than being underneath it or running a tube whose end you can't see while filling. If genuine 45,000 not driven like an idiot or pulling a trailer should have clutch friction disk in good state for another 50,000 or even more miles and there's no point to split block and box to investigate. Starter motor bush. Take it out of the gearbox housing while off the car and fit a new one when fit starter motor in the bay. sump clean out, oil strainer pickup clean and new sump seal? I found 2 quite annoyingly hard to access sump bolts at flywheel end that VW changed to Allen key on later cars than my 1984. o-ring on the dipstick tube? sorry can't advise on AAU inlet manifold suitability. Pretty sure same bolt pattern, though new gasket needed. I assume SPI unit so somewhat limiting but should work. Small bore exhaust and manifold likewise will reduce top end but should improve economy. I'd upgrade the main power lead alternator to starter to battery and earth straps. Not necessary, but simpler if reconnecting them anyway.

    Red pinstripe grill, coupe S badge and blacked out indicator lenses fitted to the front. Also managed to knock up a full stainless exhaust made from scraps around the workshop from other cars. Mgb back box and an eBay resonator, sounds amazing and isn’t obnoxiously loud.

    Ended up removing the rubbish bike carb pump and replacing it for a facet pump and malpassi regulator.

    Full service doesn't necessarily involve looking at spark plugs (bizarrely), unless it happens to coincide with some long interval like 4 years. Do you have any evidence that they were removed/checked/changed or is that an assumption? As far as I know there isn't a 1.4 3-cylinder petrol in VAG's range of engines.

    MISFIRE ON 59 PLATE 1.4 DSG

    Hi Pete Thanks for your reply. Yes i wish it was that simple. I should have said that as soon as we got it i took it straight in for a cambelt and full service and it was at this point it was found to have a misfire and was traced to cylinder three. It is also worth saying it is a four cylinder not a three pot as this is a very common fault on that engine. THANKS

    • FOR SALE
    • USED

    For sale, a full set of rare Starlite 14x7J 4x100 VW OEM alloys. One is in great condition, three have some curbing and marks, one of which has a small dent to the inner rim, but not enough to effect it's proformance. They all have good tyres but rears are a slightly lower profile, I planned to replace them but they still have plenty of grip, fronts are 6months old. I have only seen 3 sets of these wheels for sale in the past 5 years and never seen another set in person. I'm selling my polo so they are surplus to requirement as the steelies are going back on. If you have any questions or offers feel free to ask. £250 ono. Collection is preferable but delivery can be arranged at your cost. These wheels are listed elsewhere so I reserve the right to remove the advert or refuse a sale.

    Breadvan fuel leak

    Well i cheated a little bit. Had a bbq the other night, invited a couple mates, (in my social bubble,) when they rocked up, the car was already jacked up, rear wheel off. They asked what was going on, told them, an hour later, we had dropped the tank, (again!) Replaced the breather hose and put it all back together. They got food and beer so they didn't mind. There was a really small nick, probly around 1cm, maybe a little less in the hose where it goes into the wheel arch/body at the filler neck end. I think it's the hose it had from the factory so not a bad run. All connected up correctly, nice and snug, double checked, running great, no fuel smell any more. Even taken for a run to confirm. Thanks for your help and patience dudes. Very much appteciated. Keep safe.

    Has the spark plug for cylinder 3 been eyeballed at any point in this; I don't see any mention?
