  1. I had a bit of a problem I wanted to fit Vauxhall Brakes got the carrier and calliper and had new brake hoses made. Problem is they don't fit under the wheel by a nats nuts. I think I need different carrier has anyone else done the Vauxhall set? Or I go back to the 1H0615123C standard callipers until I get bigger wheels or be brave enough to shave the carriers

New Shell no engine no suspension just a bare shell What is used to look like The engine bay has been stripped of all the smoothing as it was all flaking off. under the smoothing and a ton of filler there were a few bad bits which have now been sorted I will upload more pictures once I find a better photobucket

    EPC light

    Hi guys, I currently have a problem with my car and just wondering if anyone can help me out at all. The EPC signal is coming up on my car and I'm not really sure what it is. My car is currently not in use as I'm no longer learning in it and waiting for my test to come up, this has caused a flat battery. The battery went flat the other month and I jump started it using a friends car and on that day the car worked and drove perfectly fine and no signals came up, however it's not been used since, hence the flat battery again, but a few days after this I checked the car again and the EPC light came on. Does anyone know what the problem may be when this signal appears and if it's easily fixable? Thanks :)

    Polo 6n2 Automatic

    Looking for help, my mums got a 6n2 auto, it's cutting out on short drives like as you come to stop it's cutting the engine out. Rather annoying when you're driving slow and it cuts out all of a sudden. Does it on roundabouts and when slowing down for corners. Any help much appreciated.

    Polo Blue GT

    Looking at getting my Blue GT remapped, does anyone have their Blue GT remapped and can provide figures such as 0-60 times etc. Has fuel improved? Keen to see whether this car remapped is similar spec to a gti or faster? Cheers in advance :)
  14. 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 (but any Mk3 would do) to use in their video that they'll be shooting on 1st September in Alconbury. Can you help or do you happen to know anyone that could help? Any help would be hugely appreciated! There isn't much time left to get this sorted so if you could give DOUG a call or send him an email asap that would be great.

    Lots of fault codes.

    I've just bought a Polo for my girlfriend after having a 6n. The engine even management light came on, on the way home from the garage. We took the car back and of course the light never came back. I borrowed a scanner from a friend and it came up with the following codes. Help with how to fix these would be much appreciated! Engine control module - 01314 : Check DTC Memory. Engine speed sensor (g28) - 16706 : No signal : P0322. Airbag deactivation warning lamp - passenger side : 01578. High pressure sensor (g65) - 00819 static signal too low. The not so bad sounding ones.. Loudspeaker (s) front - 00852 sporadic open circuit. Heated outside mirrors - 00920 : drivers side (z4) passenger side (z5) Supply voltage B+ - 00532 : signal too low Radio - 01304 : 004 no signal/communication Supply voltage - terminal 30 - 00668 : signal too low. Power train data bus: missing message from a/c controller - p1635 : 18043 Heated rear window (z1) short circuit to positive : 00975 Drive battery voltage - 01598 There's also a section for a 'readiness test' it failed on the following.. -Catalyst -o2 sensor -heated o2 -EGR system Obviously the top ones are the worst but would like to get rid of all/most of them. I just scanned my mk5 gti and no faults were found. ?
  20. I recently bought a 9n 54 plate Polo. We haven't refuelled it yet and the fuel flap doesn't open automatically. Should it open when the car is unlocked? I read that I can manually over ride it from inside the boot by pushing the actuator up with a screw driver but obviously this isn't ideal. Is this common and what's the fix? Not sure if it's related but the passenger door doesn't lock as it should when you lock the drivers side.

    New Black GTI on the road

  22. Hi all, Long time member, minimal poster, unless it's when there's an emergency! I've had a stock 2001 6N2 GTI 5dr in Silver since 2008 and is rapidly approaching 160K on the clock and was looking for some insight into what to do next in terms of keeping this car on the road and in it's best condition and wanted to learn from anyone elses experiences. Some basic facts: Purchased 2008 - 35K on the clock approx. Has been regularly serviced every year or 10,000 miles Recent Cambelt and Waterpump change at 158K having perhaps missed one or two since 90K Recent Alternator swapout after the original finally gave up Running Eagle F1's all round on original 15" BBS split rims Was part of the Pedal Box recall or missed the boat on the issues, not sure but remember not being a cause for concern when I looked into it -Gearbox still sounds quiet and shifts ok with some stickyness, expected from an old car, none of the usual bearing issues that were known of. -Aircon doesn't work anymore - compressor clutch activates, gas in the system but does not activate when switched on, signal not reaching solenoid so I'm guessing bad wiring somewhere. -Intermittent ABS light - suspected from faulty NSR wheel sensor -Temperature gauge fails to work, every 3rd-4th start? Again, probably some wiring. -Headlamps doing their usual deterioration, need a restoration -Wheels in desperate need of a refurb So this may seem like a pretty arbitrary run down of all my cars faults and niggles, but having owned this car for almost ten years and genuinely being in love with it from styling to handling, I want to give it the best attention possible whilst remaining stock. Are there any suggestions for either stock or slightly uprated parts I can look into, or what the next steps would be to maintaing it's life expectancy or things I should prepare myself for down the line? Any info, much appreciated, Tom

    My Red 6n2 Build Thread?

    Hi everyone! My name is Alex and im new to club polo, i drive a flash red 5 door 6n2 polo and i love it! ive had the car for a while now and have started to do some modifications to get it how i want it to look, i am on a student budget so coilovers will have to wait until i can save up - anyway, here is my build thread so far! So the little polo had been sat for years in a bush with a broken gearbox and plants growing all over it, until i came along and with help from friends and family we got her a new box and got her on the road. This is her stock on standard steelies - such a pretty little machine! First thing i new i wanted was wheels, so my dad got in touch with a mate and managed to get me some BBS RAs - from a mk2 golf gti! Then i decided to paint a few things. First i did my front grill black to make it stand out a bit more - i also painted my front splitter red to make the bumper look a bit smoother, what a difference that made! i got a hold of some new door speakers for free so i installed those with new grates - they sound way better than my standard ones i thought my front end could do with an added touch so i took the 16v badge from my engine cover and glued it to my grill - looking good! also got a guy on facebook to photoshop my car slammed! Its gonna look so good! hopefully i will remember to upload some more photos as the build progresses! Or simply follow me on instagram @alex.6n2 ??
