Hey guys just wanted to post a testimony here regarding Pete1's work.
 
So i used his repair service after spending a lot of time on this common electric window issue. Long story short i refused to pay £200 for a brand new module (because if you look into this problem, it can be the wiring loom, fuses, fuse unit, CCm blah blah). Anyway, after trying everything including buying used modules and having the same issue (and so believing the problem to be NOT the module) I came across Pete's input on this post (which i have visited several times in the past and was interested to see this post revived). I felt that after i had tried lots to fix this (including board level capacitor/relay replacement) it was worth trying Pete's service so I contacted him and we got things organised. Super quick repair and i got communications throughout the process which was interesting and a super quick return to me. 
The module has been in the car now a little over 2 weeks and the windows are perfect again. Before, i could get the windows to work for days on end, sometimes weeks, but they would ALWAYS fail during that period before failing again completely for no apparent reason. This time, i have had consistent working windows despite the rain and cold and I honestly feel Pete is on to something and has indeed found the fix, which if you search around the internet is a real achievement, because lots have tried and failed. Pete is providing a lot of detail regarding what he is doing to fix these, which should provide a lot of confidence to anyone thinking about their none working electric windows. You can save a lot of money when compared to buying a new module and the removal and fitting is really easy to do yourself - you dont need a garage or a dealer to do it just so long as you have a little space to open your car door safely 🙂
 
Big thanks to Pete, im really chuffed my little Polo is all fixed now and ive really enjoyed driving it again.
cheers
Clive

Hello Polo People,
 
I would like to offer a repair service for some types of electric window motor module as fitted to 9N3 Polo, a few Transporters and some mk1/2 Skoda Fabia.
At this stage it applies only to two specific, exact part numbers fitted to the driver's side front door, as follows:
 
6Y1959801  Fitted to RHD 9N3 Polo, a few Transporters, and very early mk2 Skoda Fabias.
 
6Y2959802  Fitted to later RHD Mk1 Fabia, from around October 2004.
 
Left Hand Drive cars will use the other part number in each case.
 
Note that both of these are driver's side units, the difference in part numbering is due to the orientation/positioning of the motor module on the panels they mount to in each model. 
 
These parts suffer a type of intermittent, progressive failure where they 'sometimes work fine, sometimes don't work at all'.  This is what I can fix for you.
 
I will test your faulty unit, confirm the problem, repair it to full working order and post it back to you for £50, total. (Non-UK residents please understand that return postage will add a little as necessary).
 
You'd post it to me (less than 1Kg so can be sent as a first class small parcel for just £3.68 within UK at present).  I would aim to turn it round within 2 days of receipt, and send it back first class.
 
This is the what the part looks like (mirror image of this and PN 6Y1959801 on RHD Polo):

 
Central locking via remote will still work in the absence of the window module, so you will be able to secure the car as normal while it is away. 
Obviously you'll want to ensure that both front windows are fully shut, as in the absence of the driver's side module the passenger side one will not operate.
 
New units are nearly £200 from VW, and ebay 2nd hand ones with these part numbers tend to go for nearly £100.
I will charge you just £50 including return postage.
 
Cheers,
Pete

The Polo Social - Your first time? What is it? What to Expect? How to Book!
The Polo Social, what is it?

The Polo Social is a social event held on 28 June ~ 01 July 2019 that is put on by Club Polo which is open to all VW Polo owners from any Club.
So, if you are part of a local club bring everyone down and grab a spot in the field.

What to Expect?
A relaxed event where you can catch up with other members, see their cars and meet new people from the club. Expect a big club meet which lasts the weekend with some beers and BBQs!
What’s going on?
Details are yet to be finalised but plans are for the club BBQ to return on the Saturday night, Show and Shine on the Sunday. We are looking to have some things going Saturday daytime. 
Where is it?
The event is held at Billing Aquadrome, Northampton Billing, NN3 9DA. http://www.billingaquadrome.com/ Tel: 01524 781 453 We have held the event here for a number of years before our recent departure to Kelham Hall, and it’s an excellent venue which really suits the club’s event. There is food available on site and there are also a couple of pubs and a Fish & Chips shop in walking distance. There is also the Mini-Golf, Karting and a leisure centre with a pool.
What do you need?
If you are camping then you need the general camping gear of tent, sleeping bag, etc. If you want to clean your car up for the show and shine on the Sunday there is a cold-water supply so, bring your bucket and cleaning gear. Also bring some money but there is a cash machine by the entrance to the site.
How much does it cost and how to book?
If you are camping the rate is £21/night. A pitch is for a tent for up to 4 people, if you have extra cars they may charge you extra. If you are a paid up member there is a discounted rate see this https://www.clubpolo.co.uk/topic/357805-polo-social-2019/ To book head to http://www.billingaquadrome.com/ and click book now. Then please select Shelduck 2 as this is our field. If you are camping for just the Saturday night then its £21 per pitch. You can book this online as per above but you might not be able to select Shelduck 2. Please select another field but just pitch up in the Shelduck 2 field with the rest of us when you arrive as there will be loads of room. The day rate is £10 per car.

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?

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" ....

      Nice! Any chance you will be selling those wheels? Mine is a Fox and I'm after a set with those black trims and any other standard bits your getting rid of I might be interested. In any case good luck with this project!

      A little mudflap fettling was akso done this afternoon.  Emblems and metal bits were removed first. The rubbery bits were then relieved of many years worth of muck (and bodge overspray!) These will be receiving a bit of treatment from the paint bloke to restore the shine lost by the deep clean. The metal bits then got straightened and cleaned back to the point where Hydrate 80 can be applied prior to black paint. Still looking for the missing emblem.

      Drivers' seat went back in first this afternoon. Obviously the passenger side was next! I got them reasonably clean using bathroom wipes (to avoid getting them too wet), but when the ambient temperature is considerably higher I'll be wet vacuuming the seats and door cards to finish the cleaning off. The worst of the muck has gone though.

      id take a guess theyre nearer 25mm /3mm wall

      Hi,   I was looking to buy a ged bar from PPP, but they have sadly stopped trading, and nowhere else seems to sell anything similar.  Therefore I am considering fabricating one myself, but am unsure on dimensions.  Obviously it has to be the correct length to fit between the chassis leg holes, but I'm unsure on the diameter and I don't want the thing too weak (it's a chassis brace lol).   My best guess from pictures of one fitted are that its about twice the ARB thickness.  Therefore my current idea is 30mm dia steel tubing, 3mm wall thickness and make suitable tabs for the ends and bolt hole flanges from some angle iron.  I have access to a welder from a friend but I think 3mm thick is about it's max capability.   I have posted a wanted advert in the relevant forum in case someone has a spare they wish to sell.
