  1. driving the other day and suddenly I lossed all power, 'EPC' light lit up on the dashboard and exhaust was smoking (White) pretty badly. Turned the car off, 30 seconds later turned the car on and it was running fine? No light on the dash, no smoke, no power loss, so just continued on. Wasn't hammering it or anything, was just normal driving when this was happening. Car is stage 2 so has a lot of different mods. any ideas what it could be?
  2. I'm starting to notice my 2009 9N3 sometimes has trouble starting. It did sit for a while and is now only starting to get used but sometimes I'm turning the key and it just turns but doesn't fire but always starts on the second attempt. I've rear horror stories online from 2007/2008 and on about the 1.2 12v having timing chain slip issues and a revised kit being available however my car is a late (09 Plate) model that was clearly manufactured after this issue being known. Could it still be the case? I hear that the timing can be checked with VCDS which my mate has, should I explore that? I did also have this issue with the idle yesterday - revs were dropping very low when stopped at lights but that seems to have stopped for now. Not sure if it's related. Car only has 52K on the clock.
  3. Hello, I was wondering if anyone had any feedback on cold air induction kits for 9n3s and which ones would be good to go for? Cheers. AJ
  4. The sensor plug on my 9n3 is completely smashed. Not the wire from the pad, but the receiving plug. Can I simply splice another in? Guessing it will be tricky keeping it dry... (The loom has a split cable - one going to the ABS sensor and the other for the brake pad wear sensor). Any pointers would be great.
  5. Hi guys just a quick one has anyone ever replaced the top engine mount before if so how much of a pig are they?
  6. Hey Guys Hope you can help me with this one, as its starting to really do my head in. Last Saturday my car died after pulling out from a junction, got it to the side of the road and tried starting it again. It was cranking over but not starting and the locks started locking and unlocking.. Thinking it was something serious I rang the RAC. RAC man came out and scanned the car, fault was to do with the engine control relay, cleared the code and then the car started fine, so drove it home. Few days later the car died again, scanned it myself and got P0688, car wouldn't start but still cranked so bought a new relay fitted it under the steering column. Car then worked fine for a few days, until yesterday when i started her up, picked the girlfriend up from work, and then parked outside our house. Ten minutes later I go out to the car to go out and the car wont even crank, absolutely nothing when i try to start the car. Like before the locks pop up and down on the turn of the key but no cranking this time. To get the car started I had to get a jump start, which allowed the car to start up fine. Scanned the car again and this time got P0685 which is a different code. Put the car on charge over night and seems to be okay for the time being, but can only be a matter of time before it lets go again. Some Google searching has suggested the J271 Relay under the bonnet. Could this be the cause? Any idea what this could be guys? Car is a Polo 9n3 Gti. Cheers in advance RamJam

    Penny the low spec 9n3

    Late march I found a bargain of a polo, £990 for a 2006 with 12k on the clock just sadly classed as a d cat for driver side fender and door damage, for £75 I got replacements and painted by my dad as he owns a spray booth. After a minor issue matching the colour to the car, the car was looking good other than minor bits of lacquer peeling on the front bumper. My next thing to do was colour code the panels and change the wheels to alloys over the plastic crap. I really wanted my own colour on the wheel so once again with my dad, I mixed some blacks and gun metals for something and turned out with this, and yes I just got the alloys of the plastic ones as they were cheap and good condition. I later got badges to replace the corroded ones so the cap is over the building again. another simple thing aesthetically was the debadging on the rear which just looks cleaner. My upcoming mods are adding fog lights and the hexed grills on the front of the car with official parts as well as some heko wind deflectors.
  8. Afternoon all I have just recently purchased a 2007 9n3 GTI after owning a 6n2, the previous owner told me that he had the car remapped but cant remember the name of the garage or what map was put on it, all he said was the only option he had at the time was optimise it for standard fuel or high octane and he choose high octane, the guy suggested that it would bump up the circa to 200bhp after the remap. The issue I am currently having is the vehicle is currently fully standard apart from the remap that I am aware of, however when i drop the car into 4th gear and accelerate it feels as if it also takes a minute to realise i have put the foot down and seem likes it misfires before picking up speed, I have felt it once or twice in 3rd but it is almost everytime in 4th I feel it. Could this be related to the car being remapped or could it be something as simple as plugs? Also wondering what mods most people start off with, I have been told to do miltek exhuast, SFS oversize turbo intake pipe, forge throttle body hose, airtec fmic, forge 007 diverter valve, secondary air intake delete and to delete N valves. Is this the usual mods and if so what order do most people do them in and what are the benefits of these mods? Also any links to buy these mods + guides on doing them? Thanks

    Mk 7 Polo required for Volkswagen event

    Hi all I've been asked to find a Mk 6/7 Polo (2002-2009) for a Volkswagen UK event next January – also see my post in the Mk 6 page. The car required has to be a mainstream model (ie E, S, SE, Sport, 16V possibly) and has to be unmodified if at all possible. It also has to be available for three days at the start of January. If you've got such a car, post a photo or email me at rich@polodriver.com and I'll take a look and get in touch if I think the car is suitable. Cheers! Rich PoloDriver.com
  10. Sorry if I missed similar topic among FAQs, but I truly couldn't find anything like it... So, I was wondering which intercooler could be easily fitted on 9N3 GTI (not Forge or similar but OEM like Merc Sprinter ones, etc.)?
  11. Hi, I have a 2006 9N3 gti and was wondering if anyone knows the diameter of the small breather that goes on with an aftermarket air intake as mine came with a rubbish generic cone filter and badly damaged small breather, this needs replacing asap so if anyone knows the sizes or could even link me to a good air filter setup that would be mint! Thanks
  12. Hi, im new on the forum after recently picking up a 2008 1.9tdi polo sport pd100. im very happy with my car, it was a private sale and when I test drove it the abs light came on. The owner was shocked and I managed to talk him into writing me a warranty on abs just incase it wasn't the sensor. ive had the sensor replaced as the scan came up showing front passenger side fault code. The wheel bearing was also replaced at the time. The light went off for all of 6 hours. Usually the light comes on right away upon starting the car. However, if it comes on while I'm driving the speedo will dance around, then the abs will kick in, followed by the light coming on and then all returns to normal driving just with the abs fault line on. my mechanic isn't sure but he's leaning towards abs pump, even though it's warranted I don't want to replace it for no reason I'd rather get to the root of the problem. Has anyone had any experience like this? I was thinking maybe it's whatever method the sensor is using to read the speed is danges somehow although it's a new sensor? Thanks for your help.
  13. Hi all! First time poster here, I've recently picked up a 57 plate Polo and decided I wanted to change the head unit to a Pioneer DA-120. I bought the lead from Halfords to fit but the unit doesn't switch off, after a bit of research I believe it's due to can bus. I then ordered the CTSVW002.2 which is supposed to be plug and play but now the head unit doesn't power at all? Anyone had similar experience? Thanks!

    RCD200 Stereo

    Just a quick question, can the RCD200 stereo play MP3 discs, or just audio cds? Have googled but found hardly anything about this model of stereo.
  15. I'm about to lower my 9n for the first time, I think i'm going to go with fk's because i've heard they're probably the best ones, what would be a sensible attractive height that wont completely break my back? They go up to 100mm on the front and 75mm on the back and i'm wondering if anyone out there can give me a good preference height that looks good and doesn't mess your ride up too bad. Thanks.

    9n3 gti clutch

    Yoooo, So im changing over the gearbox soon and now looking for a new clutch, can anyone recommend good brands or companies to go to? cheers Matt
  17. Hi if anyone could help me would be appreciated im looking to do a stud conversion on my polo 9n3 gti would any one know the size of the stud i would need would it be either m12 or m14 by 1.5 or another size thanks
  18. Hi folks! Quite new here, and recently picked up quite a tidy GTI. She's going in for a stage remap on Thursday to push up the torque to something useful and the BHP up around 200. The thing is (and I had this with previous Polos) the brake pedal is quite soft compared to modern, more urgent servos. Has anyone done any minor brake enhancements that have given more of a response? It's ok to drive when you know the car but I'd still prefer a bit more of a bite than the VW gradual brakes I've experienced on all cars of this age and older.

    Montreal's on 9n3 GTI

    Hi all I've got some Golf Montreal 1 alloys on my GTI, long story short I've lost a center cap and have decided to replace the large cap with a smaller one so I have exposed wheel nuts with separate covers. Im trying to find caps to go in the center of the wheel and can't find any in the right size (I believe around 67mm) Any ideas or help would be appreciated.

    My 9n3 build thread

    Purchased my first car in September 2016. It's a 1.2 polo 9n3 in a very basic spec. I was in two minds whether to make some changes but gave in finally. I I did some basic stuff such as LED number plate light upgrade, fitted an aux cable. I then purchased some very bad condition TT comps Theh were then refurbed an anthracite grey colour i then fitted a gti grill and removed the gti badge and plasti dipped the red stripe and front badge for the time being (will probably spray properly when I get time) also fitted some heko wind deflectors too plans for the future are Back window tints Lowering gti style rear exhaust So yeah here's my polo so far. Would welcome any suggestions and advice.
  21. Can somebody help me please! I am trying to find the 9n3 Gti cup side skirt part numbers, but I'm not having no joy! If someone know's the part numbers please let me know :) Thanks, Chaz

    Polo 9n3

    Hi their guys I'm new to this just signed up just wanted to know if 18 inch alloys will fit my polo 9n3 2008 also will I be able to drop it after
  23. hi this is my first post on the forum so forgive me for any mistakes, I got my 9n3 1.2 in September and have had a problem where occasionally the engine cranks but does not start. RAC suggested it was a fuel pump relay problem (number 404) so I got this changed. Since then the problem has continued to happen every so often. The usual humming sound when opening the door and turning the ignition does not happen when it doesn't start. a second RAC visit told me that there is also a fuel pump primer relay (number 167) and this may be the problem. I cannot find where this is located does anyone know where it is? its starting to annoy me now as having a car that decides not to start sometimes is a pain. I know where 404 is located (below the steering wheel on the right) but there is no 167 there.
