  1. Where to start??? (i'll make it as short as possible) Noise when idling which goes away once clutch is depressed.. After much research possibly two culprits; 1. release bearing. 2. input shaft bearing. Took gearbox out to GEARBOX SPECIALIST who gave it a external examine (spinning & listening to the moving parts) Advised by said specialist to change clutch as it could be just that and it may be more cost effective as, if he opens it up and finds nothing it'll cost, popped new clutch it, got gearbox on (replaced gear oil) started car, noise still there but a little quieter (a little). So new clutch, pressure plate, release bearing, release fork, gear oil. ***Not fixed** input shaft bearing guys? I don't wanna take the gearbox off again if it isn't that So noise at idle, clutch down = no noise Has anyone had a similar issue? p.s I have a spare clutch now
  2. Okay, haven't posted in ages but have the strangest of problems and need the worlds polo brain power - 64 plate polo 6R - 18k miles. When cycling the key ( it also does it when you reconnect the battery ) the strings 4 "chirps" come from the passenger side of the dash. Always normally 4 chirps, normally the same length but sometimes vary. Sounds like a muted buzzer. No faults in VAGcom. Car starts, drives and appears to work perfectly. Whether its related or not but the interior lights have packed up. No power at the connector in the light unit. Now the manual seems to suggest the interior light fuses are shared with the left and right hand car exterior lights. All other lights on the car work fine, and it appears all the fuses are intact. Ive attached a video of the noise whilst cycling the key - FIRST TO GUESS THE NOISE CORRECTLY WINS A VIRTUAL CERTIFICATE " Best strange polo noise detective in UK" Thanks
  3. Hi I own a 1995 6n polo and was looking for good sounding exhausts that fit my car if anyone has any recommendations It would be much appreciated, it doesn't matter how much it costs
  4. Hi everyone, if anyone could help me diagnose my problem that would be amazing! I'm sure its down to something electrical? I have recently got back hold of the car (off road since'15) I had her firing a few times but running naff (always near enough flooding) so since these things I have changed; spark plugs, battery, replaced 1 HT lead (misfire), dizzy cap, oil sensor, blue and black coolant temp sensors, full service (oil, air & fuel) and also added and exhaust system. I have also added a gasket to the throttle body which was missing and fixed the one which sits between this and the carb (thick black one). Only after getting this far with the car today I've managed to see how bad the carbs flooding, if anyone has any ideas what it could be please let me know OR if you get the nail on the head I will PP you a beer token! :) Many thanks video here -

    MK2 polo engine

    Hi all names kalvin im new to the club polo / vw scene .... before you all have a moan yes i have googled it and fried my brain yes i have looked through all these threads.... but im still finding it hard to get a clear answer.... Which is the best engine to put into my polo that i can turbo.... Please be nice When replying :) haha pics of my car attached
  6. Hello all, I have a polo 1.4 diesel 6n2 (not GTi) originally comes with drums on the rear, what rear axle fits so I can have disc brakes.? Cheers Sophie
  7. Hi guys any information on this would be much appreciated, my 1l polo has been having intermittent problems for a while and now I'm not running it because it's just too annoying having to wait 10-20 minutes to let's it cool off before it runs.... It has been serviced and has had lots of parts put on it such as new leads, a complete new distributor including rotary arm and cap, new coil pack I've drained the cooling system completely and refilled, it's had new temp sensors put on it and I've tested the fan works with a hair grip across the terminals and it runs, have swap out the sensor in the radiator with another one I have which hasn't helped, there are no fuses blown so I am a bit lost with it now. Before I changed the distributor it wouldn't restart straight away but now it fires after cutting out and runs until it cuts out with no warning, my temperature gauge stopped working after swapping out the temp sensors I don't think this is related in any way, the car used to bunny hop a little bit now and again ages ago, it also had a loss of power while driving in gear and cutting out... That's all I can think of currently if I think of anything else I will add it in later! Thanks in advance for any advice, Billy.
  8. Hi everyone Was hoping that I could get some advice on where I could locate an official spare front grille for my Polo gt? official parts are prohibitively expensive, eBay doesn’t have the right part thanks
  9. Hello, I am currently replacing the door cards in my 2001 Polo 6n2 5dr. I have successfully removed the old door card but I can't seem to figure out how the replacement one attaches (with the inner door handle being just below where the lock operating knob is). If anyone can help me out it will be much appreciated as I need them back on ASAP. Thank you Matthew

    Mind the GAP

    I just wanted to highlight a product in the Chris Knott range that will benefit some members when buying a new or nearly new car. Chris Knott GAP Cover is important if you'd like to replace your car with another one at the original value following a total loss claim. Highly competitive, this protection is likely to be vastly cheaper than your car dealer's equivalent offering. What is Chris Knott GAP cover? You may have heard of Finance GAP or Return To Invoice (RTI) GAP but Chris Knott's GAP is a combination of the best of both those worlds... In the event of a total loss, your motor insurer will only pay you the market value of your vehicle at the time of the loss. However, you may have outstanding finance owing on the vehicle which is greater than that market value. In any case you'll get back less than you paid for, or owe, on the vehicle. This insurance covers you for 3 years and pays you the difference between your motor insurer's payout and the outstanding finance amount OR the net purchase invoice price (WHICHEVER IS GREATER) so you can buy another car for the original value. Low cost, high value Cover starts at just £117.85 for 3 year's cover - that's about £39 per year for great peace of mind. Even a £50,000 vehicle only costs £216.22! Get a quote See how affordable Chris Knott GAP Cover could be for you at https://www.chrisknott.co.uk/GAP/?ref=clubs or call us on 0800 917 2274. best, Nick PS. Cover must be arranged within the first 90 days of ownership but is available for all vehicles less than 8 years old with less than 80,000 miles on the clock at the start of the policy. *** GAP Testimonials "I've been with Chris Knott for quite a few years including both the XE and the previous XF, plus my other runabouts. Also insured modified cars with them in the past with no hassle. Got my GAP insurance through CKI as it was a lot cheaper than Jaguar's own quote and others, too. They've always been the best for service, speed and price..." Pete McK, JagInfo "Just a quick one, covered my ST earlier with Chris Knott's GAP Insurance...it took me 5 minutes for a quote online and about 10 minutes on the phone to finalise. The lady I spoke to was great and managed to answer everything I asked..." titchytom86, FiestaST OC

    Newbie, or am I?

    Hi All, Newbie here, picking up a second car soon and looking to learn more about it ('09 MK7 Polo Match) and how it differs from the S and SE models. Seems this is the right place? Tell me, is this the old Porka site that was run by Robin and Cam many years ago? I'm 33 now and used the Porka site a lot when I first started driving, my first car was a MK3. Not a clue what my username would have been some 15 years ago. Thanks, Brydo.

    Hello from Norfolk!

    Hello everyone I'm new to the forum, and I've recently bought my first VW (finally!) It's a 1997 Polo Saloon 1.6 L, which I believe to be a 6nk2? An old lady in my area traded it in for a newer model, so I snapped it up as it's been looked after well for the past 20 years! I've never modified my previous cars due to them being a Yaris and a Micra but I've got plans for it already! I'll post progress pictures? See you around!
  18. Hi lads, ive just fitted Gti Xenons to my 6n2 Polo. I need to aim them a little higher but the electric motor doesnt lift them high enough. The manual adjustment cog/gears are shredded, do i just need to replace those and turn clockwise a bit or could i damage something else by doing this? Thanks guys Paul
  19. Hi, just wondering if there is an ecu on this as I’m looking at buying a 1989 mk2 polo s. Been quoted insurance for a black box but I don’t understand how they would fit it if there is no ecu? Thanks for any help.
  20. Been having trouble with my 40 for a few months now which all started with the distributor filling with oil.since then it’s developed an annoying misfire which I have now worked out is happening in cylinder number 2.im just unsure as to what my next move is if I’m honest I’ve done a compression test it’s not great but not bad either.Any advice would be greatly appreciated
  21. hi guys, new here, bought my other half a rather loverly 2006 VW polo 1.2, loverly car, and a dam decent first car if you ask me! bought it from a mechanic friend who had recently rebuild the head with the polo GTI valves as it had suffered from the dreaded valve cracking symptom, all valves were replaced with the much better ones, he also replaced the timing chain, all gaskets and seals and all the oils and lubricants you can imagine, proper decent bloke, I bought it for what it cost him to rebuild the thing! only has 68k on the clock! anyway! drove it 270 miles home completely fault free and only used half a tank (result!) handed it over to my other half which you can expect she was bouncing off the walls (passed her test last week) and she clocked up another 300 miles in 3 days! unfortunatly it then developed a intermittent fault, the fault only occurs when the car is fully at temperature, and won't always happen, but when it does it's only at idle and it has to have been idling for at least 30 seconds to a min, it will then bring the engine warning light up and have a rough idle, cars shaking around, and goes into "get me home mode" the fault can be rectified by turning the car off and back on again, no issues restarting it ever, the engine warning code is only ever missfire on cylinder 3, as this is her first car I'm not messing around with parts, I have ordered 3 new coil packs (went with the upgraded ones from ebay, the blue ones?) took the spark plugs out and all 3 have a thin layer of white power on them (believe this indicates the combustion cycle is to hot) any pointers or things you guys know could cause this? car drives loverly with no hesitations even after you turn it off and on again after the fault

  23. Hi, The two Polos in question are: 1. 6N2 2000 1.4 75hp AHW engine, cable throttle - okay working, probably a bit under-powered, will check cylinder compression - normal AC - 2 doors 2. 6N2 2000 1.4 75hp AUA engine, wired throttle - engine is bust - overheated because of oil pump failure. - climatronic - 4 doors I'm still considering other options, but the best at the moment seems to be to combine the two into 1 fully working Polo, with the 4 doors Polo as the base. The main question is: "Is the engine swap plug and play?" - this concerns only the engine unit, with everything immediately attached - water pump, pulleys, alternator. This is to put the AHW engine instead of the AUA. Should I swap it with the gearbox or there is no need?

    1990 Polo Saloon

    Hi All, First post in here, but frequent a few other forums (mainly Jap Car Forums.....). Just been and purchased my 1990 1.0 5 spd Saloon yesterday, bought it on a whim as my 'slammed' Mk5 Golf TDi daily decided to break and I really can't be bothered to fix it yet in this cold Its a very tidy looking car, the bodywork is pristine except and I haven't noticed any rust yet (Fingers crossed!). Has a few niggly little problems, the handbrake cable has snapped, the exhaust sits very low and rattles like a bugger, plus it cuts out when stopping for red lights etc (presumably due to the idle mixture?). It's also in need of some engine mounts, presumably the rear as the engine rocks when on/off throttle... Wheres the best place to find one?! Alex

    1.8T in 9N or 9N3

    Did anyone ever put a 1.8T engine in a 9N3 or 9N? Also, did anyone ever put a 9N/9N3 on air ride suspension?
