  1. Hey all... been a while since i've been on here! Have picked up a mk2 caddy (that's a Polo, right?) and there are a few niggles to sort. Most irritating issue (especially given the time of year) is that the heater is stuck on hot. Temperature control in cab does nothing. I've had a look under the bonnet and can't see a valve there, just two hoses passing into the cab. Where to look next? Hoping this isn't going to be a dash out job...
  2. I have undone the small bolt that goes through the shaft. (oil on end of bolt on the pic) I have tried to pull the silver casing back but it keeps hold of the shaft. I don't want to hold the shaft with grips to avoid scratching shaft. It's as if the casing is only going back as far as it can. Am I supposed to also undo the nut and bolt to the left of the shaft bolt. Thanks lads.
  3. After years of wanting one and a year of looking for one I've finally got one!! It's got high mileage, 165,000, but the engine runs nice and smooth. It's a bit tatty around the edges but it's probably the best condition polo I've bought yet - saying that's probably going to come back and bite me. Well we did a 2 hour drive to go and pick it up and me and my dad couldn't smile wide enough! There's a bit of rust on the arches, very minor, and minor rust on a few panels. When we got it home I went to open the door and the door handle came off - was no screw holding it in. The speakers don't work, simple wiring job. But the wheels are feking amazing condition! Don't even look like they've been refurbed just really clean! The plans for this year: *Fix door handle - probably do that tomorrow weather permitting *Fix speakers - tomorrow *Cambelt, oil change - general stuff when you buy a car. *Gradually get each panel sorted, can do panel by panel as colour match isn't vital as long as it's near enough. *But some 16v seats to steal the foam out of as the foam in the current seats has long gone - no tears though, well a tiny one. *Machine polish it. Only got one photo at the moment was to excited to take photos! Polished the wing and bumper and they came up nicely. The colours are really vibrant in person! Should be going to ultimate dubs next sunday in it.
  4. Hi, I woud like to change entire trottle body on my AUB with one from AFH. AUB has electric gas pedal, AHF has a wire and the connector for TPS in different. Has any of you did this? Thanks
  5. I've just fitted a GT Camshaft into my 6n engine, 1.4 8v (APQ) Ive set engine to tdc, removed old cam, placed the GT cam in same position with lobes in same direction. Put on the old 6n pulley and it's 4.5 teeth out with the crank pulley still set to tdc. I've read on old posts this is how it should be when it's placed in, but then it times to half a tooth when turned? A bit confused as what that means.. Do I keep it at 4.5 teeth out? Or turn the cam to half a tooth out of the cam timing mark. Thanks.

    Pog the polo

    Hi there this is my polo I bought for £200 it has been sat in a barn for roughly 8 years originally a 1 litre but had a 1.4 16v swap on bike carbs I eventually got it running (running rough which I expected) but still very surprised I am now in the process of tearing it all down and going to rebuild it cheers carl
  8. I've been having trouble with the heater blower so I attemped to replace the resistor today and discovered the issue. The connections to the 4-pin terminal were completely rusted and the single pin terminal had burned through. The latter obviously causing my some worry. In order to remove both I needed to pry them out with a screwdriver so now need to replace them. Re the 4-pin connector (191972754): As you can see in the pic it's horrendous. The plan is to buy another part however the only ones I can find have the wires still attached. I couldn't bring myself to splice this into the existing loom so ideally I'd like to disconnect the wires, clean them up and plug them into the new (second-hand) connector. The other pic (attached) looks as though a little lid flips up allowing this. Please confirm. Re the single pin connector: I cannot see a single reference to this anywhere (even on my new favourite site https://7zap.com/en/). This is the one that melted so also needs replacing if I can locate the part number. 4-pin connector Single pin connector New 4 pin connector with access panel to connections? Which plug into this. 4-pin up the top, single pin on bottom.
  9. Over the weekend I removed the windscreen cowl to get to the cabin filter ( Polo 6N) and broke most of the little square tabs/clips in the process. I’ve been scouring the net trying to find the part but can only find round ones or 16mm ones, not the ~10mm that I require. Does anybody know the part number of these little buggers? There are 4 or 5 and they secure the plastic cowl to the body, over which the rubber seal folds.

    H22 6n swap ?

    Hi guys, new to the fourm. I was talking to a friend over the weekend and he let me know that there was a thread on a h22 swap in a 6n, I've had a search about but can't seem to find anything. Was wondering if anyone remembers it or knows of the owner ? Thanks in advance.
  11. I’m trying to remove the carpet on my 6N and have one final struggle. Below the radio and heater, right at the very bottom there is a box attached to the floor by a little bracket. What is this box? Once I know what I’m looking at I can google to find out how to remove it. TIA

    VW Polo 6N 1.4 8v Open Air

    Hey guys, So here is my VW Polo 6N 1.4 8v Open Air with 60 hp from November 1996. The car recently have been painted and the engine all rebuilt, the car is pretty much brand new ! Now I'm focusing in the interior, specially the roof. I have leak on the sunroof that is driving me mad ! I've been trying to fix it for the last 4 years... I hope you guys appreciate the car as much as I do ! Cheers !
  13. Hi. I’m building a mk2 polo and I’m thinking of putting a 6n engine in using standard injection. What are my options when it comes to the immobiliser? Will I need to get the standard ecu reprogrammed? I know there is a good thread on engine swaps but can’t seem to find any info on using injection opposed to using bike carbs. any information will be appreciated or links to threads thanks liam
  14. Hi there, I'm trying to re-fit my front door handles after a bit of painting. Rears went on fine but cannot for the life of me see how the fronts are supposed to go on. I need to line the paddle thing from the lock up with the slot for the central locking AND get the handle pull to clip into place. Seems impossible from the outside. Anyone have any tips, experience or guides? Cheers
  15. My 6N suffers from a wet boot in the wetter times of the year. As we've just started to get into the wetter part of the year, it has just started to get wet again, so I've been keeping an eye on it to see if I can see where it's coming from. It seems to be somewhere on the left hand side of the boot and mainly what would be the top side of the chassis rail, where the wheel tub meets the floor. It doesnt appear to be the light seal leaking and I dont use the rear washer as it's never worked. I cant tell if it's coming from the front or rear of the boot ? What other possible points of water ingress should I check ? Any help- gratefully received.
  16. I have a 6N that is blowing a dark grey/black foam through the air vents, often into my eyes. Grrrrr! I assume this is a filter between outside the cabin and the air vents so it is quite important. My questions therefore: - is this indeed what it is? - a part number would be amazing. - is it easy to replace? I hope the entire dash doesn't need to come out. - do I need it? Thanks.
  17. Hello all, this is my first time posting to this forum. I currently drive a 1998 golf MK3 1.6 cl which has the AEE lump. Recently it has started burning oil and producing blue smoke. I have managed to buy a replacement 1.6 AEE engine from a 1999 S reg polo 6n1 automatic. looking at the engines I can see that the blocks have slightly different mounting holes for the gearbox bell housing bolts. I know that the polo uses the 085 box and the MK3 uses an 02K DGH box. Is there a possibility that the polo engine could work with the 02K gearbox with a few missing bolts? Or do I now have a rather large AEE paper weight 😂😂😫 Thank you!

    Roof felt fix

    I have a 6n as a restoration car and part of my roof felting is slack and appears to be coming down. Does anyone know any way to fix it back up. Thanks
  21. Can I get some help guys ? At times when driving my 99 6n will cut the engine and throw on the battery light ? Starts fine with a flick of the key ???? I’m thinking a bad earth but I’ve no idea lol any help ??
  22. Afternoon, So my drivers side lock isn't working. Key will turn but wont lock or unlock the door. I've looked into taking the handle off to get a batter look but as is a 99 6n, it requires a special tool. Has anyone on here got one or know of where to get one? or if you have any other idea about how to fix, I'm all ears. I've added a few photos of the bolt that needs removing. Thanks in advance
  23. just done the rear brake disc conversion to the 6N1 and using my light weight 14inch alloys. paint calipers job lot and realised balance weights hit caliper when doubled up. the single ones go past just but the ones that are doubled up hit. 1 inch from the balance weights the alloy dips in shape. can the balance weighs be put there or re-done where they are by just using single weights? dont fancy changing alloys. wouldn't have done the conversion if alloys had to be changed. i did semi check all of this before painting calipers but obviously didn't spin the wheel fully around to where the weights were.

    Dashboard

    Hello all, I wonder if someone here can help me please? I have a 1.0 1999 polo, 6N?? My instrument panel intermittently stops working, turn ignition on but no ignition lights. It starts no problem and everything else is ok, then the next time you go to start it everything is back to normal which is very strange and very annoying. Any ideas please or do I scrap it. Pete
  25. Need to know are they the same ? I badly need a hub for my polo for MOT ASAP
