    VW polo breadvan 1994

    Thanks zob. You've been really helpful. I'll follow your advice. Everything is working perfect onnn the car and it's running fine too. The only exception is the fuel gauge, temp gauge and the little row of led bulbs at the bottom of the dials. I'm hoping a replacement instrument cluster might solve this but I'm going to check the wires too like you've suggested. Thanks again.

    I'd say start with taking off the steering column surround (three screws on the bottom of it I think) and the fascia underneath the glovebox on the other side - you can get up behind the dash with the torch then and have a good look. It'll be obvious if the high current got to any of those thin gauge wires. If all of the lights and the engine are working though I'd cautiously say you got off ok!

    Will do. Is there any particular area I need to inspect or is just behind the instrument cluster the best choice?

    First pics back from metalwork worse than I thought, it's way beyond economic sense, but had it since 1993. Have to see how the sums add up!
  7. Hi everyone I have a 2015 Polo 6C 1.0 with the composition media (CD drive and SD card reader in glove box) I did want to fit retrofit a stereo with carplay/Carlink but after speaking to a VW Coder not sure if I'm going to retrofit a composition unit that supports car play. As he told me because my polo is a 2015 and they only introduced car play in 2016 I would need to remove the component protection from a newer unitn(easy enough) but then would have to patch the system and get a licence for it which would be around the £500 mark . Plus second hand units are selling for around £60. For this sort of money I was thinking there must be a stereo that looks and performs similar to factory ones with less headache. Unless anyone else knows a VW Coder that can do it cheaper? Is there any decent aftermarket units that look stabdard and work with the steering wheel? Thanks in advance Ant

    Make sure to have a dig around the wiring underneath the dash fascia though - although the clock's voltage regulator may well be shot you could have some melted wires that will cause headaches unless they're sorted. Worth checking thoroughly.

    Gearbox Codes

    Will this actually fit my Mk2f AAV engine or require some modification? The current box is an 8P. The casing looks pretty much identical

    Gearbox Codes

    CWN is a 5 speed from a 6N1
  11. Last week
  12. Hi folks Recently picked up this 5 speed box for my Polo as a spare part. I've cleaned it up a bit to try and see the code but the numbers/letters I can make out don't seem to tally to any of the codes I've seen that were used in the Mk2/3 Polo's. Does any have an idea what it might be? To me it looks like 8CWN??075 TIA

    The worst of the muck is now off. Just need to convince a neighbour to let me have a go of his steam cleaning rig to finish fhe job off! This thread may go a bit quiet for a while now, as my freshly painted scooter bodywork will be arriving soon. (Been waiting for it since February) 🙂
  14. Hi all. I am looking for someone to rebuild my gearbox. It whines in every gear and is gradually getting louder. Sync is fine, changes heat smooth so I am guessing it’s bearings? I also have a B&B clutch that can go on at the same time. I live in Devizes Wilts, so I’m hoping for a Polo specialist within 50ish miles? Any recommendations? cheers Darren.

    Replacement carb for '83 MK2

    "not just the lever" that diagnosis does not fill me with confidence on their competence with carbs. There is so little to go wrong on a Weber, and what might block can be fixed with compressed air and carb cleaner like engine breather oil in idle jet. Even medium to big faults are not ruinous for a Weber. Worn needle valve, vac leaks at hoses or base, crud got past ancient fuel filter or torn/missing air filter, split o-ring on mixture screw, fuel pressure too low (or too high), throttle shaft air leak can be fixed with bigger shaft but that's mega miles. Water in fuel well ethanol crust could be scraped away, maybe ultrasonic clean. Make sure you or the garage get a new rubber base mount for the Pierburg.
  17. Had a proper look and probe of that loom and it made sense - both relay coils were wired parallel, honestly nothing wrong with the thing. So i shortened the wires i'd made and ran it straight off the alternator (closer to the lights at least, right?). Disconnected the dimming resistor too (found the plug, aye) It works as it should. Honestly I think this idle weirdness is just a red herring mixed with my over-sensitivity for running issues at the moment. I measured the voltage drop over the old wiring at 1.85v and over the new loom at 0.97v. Did it in the day so can't tell the difference in terms of light but that should be a fair bit brighter eh. Got 13.6-odd volts at the bulbs now, same as at the battery when the alternator is running.

    Replacement carb for '83 MK2

    don't see why not. dellorto.co.uk sell a Pierburg repair kit for 2e. So long as pulldown unit, 2nd stage vac unit and autochoke working and heating tubes still in place for the autochoke... part channel heater heating, idle cut-off solenoid works.. Flipping complex the Pierburg. But nice when it works right.

    My job has been using up all the time this week, but stuff has still happened in dribs and drabs. The front end got another coat of epoxy mastic early in the week, then work took over. Today I made a start on cleaning the worst of the crud off the gearbox. It was pretty well caked. Half an hour or so of scraper and wire brush action saw it looking a little better. I'll hopefully finish removing the heavy deposits tomorrow before giving it a good steamy pressure wash at some point. Another rusty patch got the Deox treatment this week - this one is above the offside tail light aperture. Hopefully more to come tomorrow! 🙂

    Replacement carb for '83 MK2

    ok, so spoke to the garage and they said that it's not just the lever - best bet would be to get a new carb. found this one online.....https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/VW-1-3-MH-ENGINE-PIERBURG-2E-CARBURETTOR-030-129-016-E-SPARES-OR-REPAIRS/323782227386?hash=item4b62ecb5ba:g:wEkAAOSwmU1ckNli think it could be a reasonable goer?

    I suspect you are right. I'd connected the leads and then turned the key to try start it twice before I realised I'd done something wrong. You are correct, I was incredibly stupid. I'm very embarrassed about it. I've jumped started lots of cars over the years without issue. I still cannot really comprehend I actually did it. I'm watching an instrument cluster right now. I really think it could be that at fault.

    VW polo breadvan 1994

    There's a voltage regulator on the back of the clocks. That brings 14v down 5v I think. Doubt it can cope with reverse polarity, was ignition on when you were stupid with jump leads? um, 1994 breadvan... mk2f not 6n.

    Hi all, Thanks for the help. You've suggested some fantastic ideas and I've got an update! The lights and hazards and indicators are working! There is just no lights on dash showing that. It now surely must point to my instrument cluster being fried!

    no hidden fuses im affraid does the hazzard lights work? i would pull the lower dash trays both sides and look for melted wires

    VW polo breadvan 1994

    Hi Zob, Can I start by thanking you to take the time to reply and offer advice. It's very much appreciated as I'm a novice with cars. To answer your questions, yes the car seemed to behave fine when driving and will still start after a short run to charge the battery. It's just the gauges and indicators that don't work. I was hoping there might be a hidden fuse somewhere! Is it possible it will have blown multiple things? The dash dials and relays? When I put the indicators on i can hear a single click rather than the double click you hear as the indicator flashes on and off.
