Booking Problems
When booking to camp, you will probably be told you can't book Shelduck 2, (the field we are having the show in) this is due to the computer system at Billing has booked the whole field as the show field, this stops any random campers from booking into the field, you will be told you have to book for Shelduck 1 or 3 Do not worry, just accept shelduck 1 and when you arrive just camp in shelduck 2

L468 SYJ 1993 Polo
I was wondering if anyone knew the whereabouts of this dark blue Polo, my boyfriend sold it in August 2016 and regrets it - hoping to know the whereabouts or potential of buying it back. It had a 1.3 engine in it when sold but originally had a 1 litre which I believe was sold with it. 
Its MOT ran out last summer and it's currently SORNed. 
Hoping somebody might be able to help!

Distributor oil leak
Just a quick question. I have oil gathering in the distributor cap and have bought the two seals to replace. Haynes says to set the engine to TDC before withdrawing the distributor body. However, when I had an issue with another distributor the RAC man just pulled it out on the roadside. If I make sure the locator doesn’t move when it comes off the engine is it fine to go ahead without the engine on TDC?

Polo 1.1 & 1.4 abd
So I’ve finally realised that I’m never going to have the time to do “project polo” she was bought with a full mot (expired now) with the intention of doing the easy engine swap to the 1.4 abd, was going to put some cams and bike carb with the aim of a 100bhp fun rat look sleeper.. but like many projects I never got to the hard part.. so for £500 you get a polo 1.1 and the 1.4 engine.. and I get to crack on with my beetle that is also waiting on me.. any questions please ask loads of information on here about the engin swap.. comes with the golf 5 speed box and gearlinkage too

Help with my coilovers over Christmas
Hello Club Poloers,
 
Long shot because I don't use CP too much anymore and I'm not sure how active people are on here, but I need some help over the Christmas period.
 
My Polo is on coilovers but I raised it ages ago, but would like to lower it back down. I don't really have any tools and I think it might be tricky as they're probably seized up. I was wondering if anyone in the Huddersfield area would be up for helping me lower it back down over Christmas? I'll be in Huddersfield from 22nd December to 1st January. Crate of beer in it for whoever can help me. Preferably someone with a decent garage space/ramp to do it in.
 
Cheers!
Patrick

the One and only 6N open air 1.9 tdi 154 hp
Guys, here some pics of the only Polo 6N 1.9 diesel been delivered to The Netherlands and nowadays the only 6N1 open air with an 1.9 tdi  actual setup 154 hp ... to be changed to 200 hp. 
This was the first car of my wife (bought new) and after 190.000 km we thought it should changed to a red dragon with a little bit more power.
So based on the original car with the 1.9 AEX SD we built in the AFN 1.9 tdi engine - Polo Gti interieur - front brakes from the Gti and also the original BBS from the Gti. Our car had 13" and now we are driving 15". 
The film: 205 on the GPS .... the rpm - yeah sorry for that made a failure in the electric .. took signal from the ecu instead of the generator (still need to change)
 
Still to do: Original coilers from ralley Sport to be installed/ axle back from the GTI to be installed/ seat heating to be installed / an original radio (searching)/ the right airbag to be exchanged .... or eliminated (original was only one).
G60 brakes and probably OZ wheels 16" ....

Polo Green smurf
Greetings to all, my name is Oleg, I am from Russia.
 In our country, second-generation polos are not very popular due to the small number of such cars, and so I decided to look for communities outside my own country.

Dora v2
Dora v2 - I figured the bodywork was in reasonable enough condition that I could throw it in for an MoT, but it wouldn't start. Drained the fuel tank and tried some fuel cleaner, changed the rotor arm, dizzy cap, ignition coil, spark plugs, but it still wouldn't spark. So I handed it over to the garage who ended up replacing the whole distributor, and did a little bit of welding on the offside sill - which is the bulk of the remaining rust taken care of. Then they put it in for MoT, and it passed with no advisories. Nice!

      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!

      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.

      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/ 
    • Whippy097
      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...
