  2. I know the guys at the Milton keynes TPS are a hell of lot easier to deal with than the main stealership parts departments
  3. Hi Nige, many thanks for your help 🙂
  4. Unfortunately the online parts site doesn't go past 2016 models at the moment https://volkswagen.7zap.com/en/rdw/polo+derby+vento-ind/po/2016-773/ so it might pay to see if there is a branch of TPS near to you, they might be able to help you out ?
  5. Ladies & Gents Within a few weeks of collecting my Polo SEL in May of this year I managed to scratch the centre vent console whilst taking out the USB cable used to power my mobile. Rather than simply leaving it I couldn't resist trying to get the scratch out and, yes you've guessed it, I've made a right mess of it and really can't live with it for the next five years or so. My less than helpful dealer eventually gave me what they said was the part number - V2G2858415ACRGK - and quoted £270 which appears excessive for what appears to be a relatively small pop in/pop out console? I've searched the net under the part number but have had no hits. I would appreciate any help please. Regards Sheps

    Timing issues mk2f coupe

    Very good pictures, taken with a very nice camera, but every picture tells a story, as they say. What I notice from your pictures is: (1) There is some 'spanner rash' on the camshaft bolt, also there are two white marks on the bolt and sprocket, presumably placed there to enable the bolt to be tightened to its correct torque without using a torque wrench. If this IS the case, why do the marks not line up? If you wish to tighten it correctly, I would suggest that you slacken off the bolt and re-tighten it to the correct torque with a torque wrench (the correct setting will be in your manual.) (2) There appears to be some rust on the camshaft sprocket teeth (no doubt due to the car standing for some time) - I would suggest that you examine the belt before putting it back (I can see what look like fabric threads near the bottom of the picture) - run the engine for a few days and check the condition of the belt again before your big day. - this is to make sure that the (rusted?) sprocket hasn't damaged the belt. (3) Slightly out of focus, is the correct timing mark, thankfully aligned with the static mark (180° opposite the the 'home-made' marks at the top.) I recommend that you use these marks for checking the timing. If you intend to fully remove the belt, (and put the same belt back on) mark its direction of rotation on it with a felt tipped pen before removal. As Kiran says, the crankshaft timing mark takes the form of a notch on the pulley, but there is also a tooth on the crankshaft sprocket that has a chamfered corner - this chamfer is the timing mark.

    Master cylinder brake hoses

    As you say, the pipe end of the hoses needs to be fixed, so that end of the hoses needs to have a nut on it to retain the bracket(s) that you will need to make up. Regards

  16. I'll be honest I've never liked the idea of cutting. I'll just leave it alone for now I guess. Concentrate on my engine project.

    gt /3f runs rich- wont run lean

    yeah so no use ,,unless newman or such would regrind it shame as its unmarked still need to play with the vac gauge on timing
  20. Hi Heartagram, Yes i saw that you used to own it. To be honest i think UKD thought it was worth a lot more than actually anyone would give for it so i paid a lot less than when i saw it originally on FB but they had rented it to i believe channel 4 or 5 for a film they were making but i never saw the film or been able to find out anything more about it. Like you say its a time warp and i have spent a bit to get it restored and repainted, Serviced, lots of perished bits replaced and the like but i love it and hopefully next year will enjoy getting it out on the road and too a few shows
  21. OK, thanks. That's a bit of a shame, I literally only wanted to go fractionally lower at the front end. This seemed like it would be a sensibly priced way of doing it, since the minimum adjustment from lowering springs/kit seems to be 40mm and 8 to 10 times the cost.
