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" ....

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!

      Good morning to you all and as well as you can be in these times I hope. My '97 Polo has sprung a leak on the power steering hose in the area that runs under the radiator. Ironically this pipe was replaced a year ago with one off my scrapped polo - 3 months older and a very long story. The pipe had previously burst where it passes the suspension strut. I know it's a bu****er to get off and the chap at the garage did the replacement and it took him over 2 hours.   So, hoping not to take the pipe off if it can be avoided. Access to the are of the leak looks to be good, but I cannot tell if the leak is the metal pipe, the join to the rubber pipe or the rubber pipe itself as there is protective foil etc over everything there. Will investigate further of course.   Can removing the pipe be avoided and what suggestions do you have please?   Many thanks Phil

      You can test it. Try the cig lighter with the ignition off. My USB port also lights up, but only with the ignition on. If it has a seperate positive connector for the lighting you should connect it to the same circuit. I actually connected my positive to the positive wire of my rear defroster, so I can flick the defroster switch and be 100% sure it doesn't dain the battery. My defroster doesn't do anything though 🙂 , might get too hot when you run it for too long

      Hey. I want to convert my cig lighter to a USB port. Curious whether the power to it is allways on or only when the ignition is on. I’m not sure whether to get ones with lights or a voltmeter on as I don’t want to drain battery when not in use. thanks!

      I've just cured another leak.  My tailgate seal had gone, meaning water was sat on the metal lip underneath.  The lip then rusted and water seeped into the boot through the seam of this lip.   https://photos.app.goo.gl/khaT3JRoYuq6WjU97   I sanded the lip back, treated the rust, new seam sealer (that's what is being applied in the picture), paint and replacement seal and she's dry in there.   It took me ages to find the source of the leak, but I'm glad I did.  It's something else to check when looking at a wet boot anyway.

      What is the float height? 7mm from float to gasket just pushing on needle valve I think. (for about 18mm droop)   You have 75---[185/F30/120]---[155/F22/100]---50 (and the bridge to venturi in barrel with choke flap heads to the side with 50 idle). You intend to try 75---[185/F30/120]---[155/F22/105]---50. Okay.   If that improves down low enough then try bigger secondary main like 125 or 127 or 130. 75---[185/F30/125]---[155/F22/105]---50   If 105 doesn't help enough  try 110 primary main.   if still poor transition check the diaphragm and spring of the pump. If diaphragm has split it won't pump sufficient volume. If spring is broken it won't refill enough after each squirt.   To test pump you can place carb over a container with fuel in the well and operate throttle lever 10 times, weigh or measure the fuel and see if it matches the spec. (a Pierburg 2e3 delivers 10 to 11 ml in 10 strokes through a 0.3mm jet so each squirt is quite long duration to overcome weakness as secondary opens.   DMTL usually have 40 or 45 pump jet so squirt duration is shorter than Pierburg, but it should be much the same volume of fuel. On racing Webers you can adjust how much is returned rather than squirted with a bleed and pick different rod/spring strengths for greater volumes. It has to last to cover the drop in vacuum as secondary opens.   Make sure to measure the rod length of pump diaphragm if you do need a replacement. Too long and it won't fit.   There's also a ball bearing in the pump jet as a simple valve. If it does not rattle when removed and gently shaken you need a new pump jet.     I ended up using F33 emulsions in both stages as I went to ever larger venturis . These are thin walled so have more reserve.
