This year we are accepting bookings from the Thursday night till Sunday night, but on those days there will be nothing planned in the way of entertainment and anyone staying on those nights might be asked to assist in the putting up/dismantling of the club marquee.

As from today 1st Jan 2018 we will be updating the membership packs, unfortunately this means there will be a delay in the posting out of the new packs until all the new items have been received, hopefully all the new items should be with me by the middle of this month and I will then work as quick as possible to catch up and resume the normal weekly postings.

Here we have a fix for our threads here at ClubPolo. If you've used photobucket over the years you would be aware of their T&C's have changed, this has caused an abundant of issues for us, especially on our older topics.

It's time to see if all your engine mods have worked, see how much BHP/Torque you've gained or lost !!
If you've not been before? It's a great way to catch-up with members new & old. Aim to get there by 08:30 onwards with the runs starting around 10:00

Please if anyone has any info or seen my car since it got stolen last Friday 29/09/17 from Bromyard HR7, can you contact me or police? It was last seen dragged away by a white van 
For anyone on Facebook,  please share
Many thanks for any help, I'm a single mum of two, trying to make ends meet and this car would have helped a long way to fix my other Polo, which now needs her gearbox fixed

Got quite a few plans for this coming up, starting with tinting rear window later this week, custom / development exhaust at the end of the month, and maybe a bit of red vinyl to add some colour 😀

What Car? Magazine are planning to do a video celebrating 40 years of the What Car? Car of the Year award - and we hope to include every previous winner.

In 1995 they named the Volkswagen Polo as our Car of the Year, so they're trying to find a model from that year to use in their video that they'll be shooting on 1st September in Alconbury.

I spontaneously bought another Polo this week... I recently had a mk2 that I sold in June due to buying  our first house (once it's built later this year!) and needing space, funds etc 

I came across this lovely little Breadvan GT advertised on the forum and got in touch a few times with the owner, Ben. I finally caved in and made an offer and the rest is history!

Everyone loves a trackday! Last year saw a lot of first timers on the track and it was a fantastic day. 

For those that don't know Blyton Park is a fantastic little course that is perfectly suited to a small car like the Polo.
This year is a little later than usual, Saturday 14th October, but hopefully the weather will keep dry for us.

      That guide sleeve should be parallel, if there is a 'step' in the length of it, then it needs to be replaced. You are sure that you have put the driven plate in the correct way round - aren't you? Back to your original problem (the noise) - Always a difficult thing to diagnose without actually hearing it. Did it come on gradually, or suddenly? Could it simply be that you are being over cautious - maybe you could listen to a similar vehicle and compare the sound.   It would seem that you may have found an honest gearbox specialist - many would have sold you some expensive and perhaps, unnecessary work.   Regards

      I am struggling a bit to follow what you say, and judging by the lack of replies, so are other people. Do you know if the fuel RETURN pipe is clear of obstruction? - If you are not sure, I would suggest that you (1) disconnect the return pipe (2) remove the fuel tank cap (3) use a tyre pump (cycle tyre pump will do) to blow through the pipe back to the tank. If that pipe is clear, I would then (1) depressurise the system (2) remove the fuel pressure regulator (3) clean it and put it back. If you have had the injector out, did you check/replace the two 'O' rings (Large one at the top, small one at the bottom.- There should also be a gasket under the injector 'cover'. If the points that I have outlined do not make much sense, maybe you could send us a picture of your SPI unit, we may be able to spot if there is a problem with its assembly.   Regards

      The valve inside the filter is only intended to open if the filter itself becomes blocked (through not being changed often enough) All that it does is bypass the filter, so the engine still gets oil, albeit unfiltered oil (which is marginally better than no oil at all.)   Sorry about not replying earlier. Regards

      Combustion chamber in head is liked by ze Germans.  If you use standard sized 122mm rods you need pistons with same compression height as HZ?   Motorbike pistons (cbr1000rr 2007- is 76mm bore I think) and custom rods?

      Yes I have - but it’s a completely different tone to the normal parking sensor sound. Also, it makes it when radio is off
