OK guys and girls, we have ten spaces again for all types at bodelwyddan castle.

The meeting point for myself heading down from the north is lymm services as it's a nice central location. if you're interested in joining us then pop your name down. the show date is the 20th of may.

Thank you  Polo owners
Hi Everyone
I'd like to say a massive thank you for all the help and advice you have given me since I got my Aunts 1989 Polo Mk 2, what a brilliant group you all are.
Just to say that she has now been sold and is off to Dorset next Wednesday. Quite an epic trip, I presume by a transporter, or it will take forever. I wanted to keep her but hubby didn't like driving her at all, can't see why!
Thanks again, these forums are invaluable.
Cheers Jakki   ???? x

Post in The Polo Social - Your first time? What is it? What to Expect? How to Book!
We have confirmed the prices with Kelham Hall and you can now book your stay via our shop!
https://www.clubpolo.co.uk/store/category/8-the-polo-social-2018/ the standard rate is £21/night, this is for 2.adults & 4 children 1 car, 1 tent/caravan/motorhome, the current rate @Kelham is £25/night so you are already getting a discount and fully paid members will receive a further discount on booking up to 10 days before the event, after this the same £21/night will apply, there are some extras that will be collected at the gate £5/night for additional adults, £5/night for additional cars & £2/night for dogs
Please do not try and book direct with Kelham as you will be charged the full £25/night and due to our PLI insurance will not be permitted to camp with the main show area, you will be in the general camping site..
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.
This year due to so many people "forgetting their passes" we will not be posting the passes out, they will be on the gate collection

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

      I have to head to Plymouth next week so thought as I had time tonight I would fill up with fuel.  Two garages had no petrol (but they did have diesel).  This story about BP closing some forecourts has sent people into a panic.  Have my Polo brethren got full tanks?  If not .... PANIC!!!

      I believe the link that you show there, is the one that connects to the bell-crank lever at the top, and at the lower end to the selector finger. At the point where it connects to the selector finger, there is a degree of adjustment via an elongated slot.   This adjustment may have become 'lost' if the retaining nut was lose, so it might be a good to visually inspect that slot, in order to see the marking where the link has been originally fitted, then refit it in exactly the same position. There are two alternative gear linkages (1) a system of rods (2) a cable linkage. It looks as if you have the cable model. Unfortunately, the cable system is more difficult to adjust, than is the rod system, therefore it might be better to ask a VW dealership (or, if you have them in Israel, a VW specialist, who probably wouldn't charge as much as a dealership) to adjust it for you. It is possible to make this adjustment without the special equipment, BUT there would likely be a lot of 'trial and error' - and you may still not achieve the optimum setting.   Regards

      Hi all.  Just wanted to say a public and huge thanks to Nige8021.  He is really knowledgeable and super keen to help.  In PMs he's provided me with loads of detail and some helpful suggestions which I will use.  My girlfriend should be mobile again quite soon.  Engine code AUD confirmed and plan in place!     Thanks Nige.
