    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 !
  2. Hello all, My 6n2 w reg 1.4mpi 8v will misfire and the dash warning lights will all flicker when driving in heavy rain, I don't get this issue any other time, just in heavy rain. I've replaced the HT leads, just wondering if anyone had any other ideas or experienced the same problem?
  3. Hello everyone! I noticed that my steering column moces in and out about an inch, or maybe two. What could be the problem? Thank you in advance!

    • WANTED
    • USED

    6N1 1.4 Front End parts wanted, including headlights and indicators, although lenses can be damaged as I have good ones. I have sourced some parts separately but would rather source from one place if someone is breaking. May consider other parts around car depending on condition too. Kent area or close.

    2.0 polo 6n build

    Hi, first of all I'm new here. I drive a 99 polo 6n. I have been doing bits to it but I'm researching on doing an engine conversion. I have picked up a vw beetle 2.0 engine and running gear, ecu and loom ect for next to nothing with low milage has anyone ever done this swap or above to point me in the right direction with some tips on how to fir ect with regards to mountil the engine? Pic of my car
  7. Guys, here some pics of the only Polo 6N 1.9 diesel been delivered to The Netherlands and nowadays the only 6N1 open air with an 1.9 tdi actual setup 154 hp ... to be changed to 200 hp. This was the first car of my wife (bought new) and after 190.000 km we thought it should changed to a red dragon with a little bit more power. So based on the original car with the 1.9 AEX SD we built in the AFN 1.9 tdi engine - Polo Gti interieur - front brakes from the Gti and also the original BBS from the Gti. Our car had 13" and now we are driving 15". The film: 205 on the GPS .... the rpm - yeah sorry for that made a failure in the electric .. took signal from the ecu instead of the generator (still need to change) Still to do: Original coilers from ralley Sport to be installed/ axle back from the GTI to be installed/ seat heating to be installed / an original radio (searching)/ the right airbag to be exchanged .... or eliminated (original was only one). G60 brakes and probably OZ wheels 16" .... IMG_7546.MP4
  8. I have a polo mk4 1997, need to remove steering wheel, no airbag, can you tell me how please. Thanks
  9. Firs post, so hello everyone. I'm one of this freaks who owns '96 6n1 aev and doesn't want to scrap it. So there is a crack on the servo vacuum pipe and I'm trying to find a replacement somewhere. Any idea what would be the part number or if its interchangeable with other models? Can't find it anywhere, here in Ireland this particular model is gone even from the scrap yards...
  10. The rear brakes on my V reg Polo recieved an advisory "would benefit from a service"). Made a start on them today, but found that they are different to the ones in the Haynes manual, in that having removed the drum, the flange on the hub is preventing removal of the brake shoes. Does the hub have to be removed to change the shoes? What size socket do I need? - nut is marked 22H Should I replace the hub nuts? What is the hub nut torque? Many thanks.
  11. Hi Everyone, First time on a forum…. Be kind! Sorry for asking a question, which has most likely been asked before! BUT…. Currently stripping and rebuilding a polo estate 6kv5, I am going to replace everything including the engine! Its currently the reliable 1.9sdi model on a 1998 (S Reg). So, the stupid question I have been looking for the answer and simply confused myself! Is the polo estate 6KV5 the same the SEAT 6KC? The reason for asking is that I will be lowering the estate but, prefer springs and shocks (old school) compared to coilovers. I’ve found loads of Coilovers on EBAY for around £220-£230 which is cheap enough, however, spring and shocks seem to be more difficult to source at competitive price. If the SEAT CORDOBA 6K suspension kits fit the VW POLO ESTATE 6KV5 then there is a kit I am considering. eBay item number: 360591582588 Seat Ibiza 6K Cordoba 6KC 1993-1999 (without Facelift 6K2 + 6KC2 99-02) -2x front shock absorber -2x rear shock absorber -2x front bearings Can someone please confirm if I am either correct or incorrect….
  12. Sooo..I've got a strange knocking noise coming from, I believe it's the gear box. It's a very quiet knock and it isn't a constant knock either. The knocking occurs mostly in the lower gears upon acceleration and also when I hit bumps in the road. I can also feel the knocks with my hand on the shift knob and I might add the shifting doesn't feel as knochy anymore it feels sort of loose and inaccurate. Does anyone have any idea what the problem may be? It's very strange one too me, I've looked it up and found nothing that really explains the issue. And also, it may or may not have anything too do with the issue but I have a hole or crack or maybe a broken bolt on the exhaust right around the same area of the car, which I will be taking too a garage to get fixed/replaced as I can't get under the car myself. I'd rather not have a garage look into to the knocking problem as they could just rip me off and make up problems that don't exist. Aside from these issues the car does seem too run fine as far as I can tell, it doesn't seem low on power or anything like that. So any help/ pointers would be much appreciated. Thanks. Polo 6n1 1.4 8v

    Auto G/Box

    My '98 1.4 Auto has only done 72k. But the gearbox has started messing around. On first drive from cold in mornings, it take a while to change up (have to lift off throttle to get it to change). And sometimes on slow speeds it seems to go into neutral, and suddenly jumps into gear. I've heard the gearbox fluid can be changed, but how? Are the electronic solenoids changeable? Is the anything that can be checked firstly? Cheers.
  14. Hi I'm new to the site and currently in middle of putting 6n2 front end on my 6n got everything needed just can't get slam panel to fit up its like there is something in the way but can't seem to work it out this is how she sits ATM looking sorry for herself Also I have the plates from the chassis rails but not sure how to weld them do I have to remove old ones and do I have to shorten chassis rails at all ???
  15. My 1996 1.4CL 6N1 Polo has developed a strange fault. The other day the central locking stopped working completely. I could only open the front doors and the boot with the key. I extracted (with difficulty) the polystyrene foam moulding that is the pump holder/first aid kit holder from the boot after first removing the central locking pump from the moulding, I then manually opened the petrol flap by pulling on the actuator rod and filled up with fuel at home. I removed the electrical connector to the pump to check for corrosion on it and the pump conector pins (none found) and put the pump back in place wrapped only in bubblewrap (without putting the foam moulding back in) so the car could be used temporarily. Now the weird thing. For no apparent reason the central locking started working OK. Great I thought - problem solved - must have been a slightly dirty connection on the multiblock that I hadn't noticed. However, the following day my wife was outside and heard the central locking operate on its own. We then both witnessed the car randomly locking and unlocking itself repeatedly with a gap of varying length between each action. I've temporarily removed the pump to stop it cycling and flattening the battery plus, if we go out in the car we don't want it randomly unlocking itself whilst it's parked up and we are away from it. So, anybody come across this random locking and unlocking behaviour before and knows what the culprit might be?
  16. Afternoon guys and girls, The 98/R Polo has been bought a new front badge. In black, and I want to fit it tomorrow. I've had a very quick look, and I don't think the badge will just pop out without snapping bits. I assume the whole grille needs to come out, and then as I can see the whole back of the grille, I can unclip the badge? How does the grille come out? Is that plastic clips too? Cheers
  17. I have a 6n and i'm trying to fit Lexus lights at the back but my bulb holder at the back won't fit them. It's just the default one at the moment but wondering if anyone knows what type or even a link to the bulb holder i'd need is? Thank in advance.
  18. Hello my name is David I'm new to this website. I have a problem with my polo 6n1 my interior roof light wont go on I have replaced a new bulb. Can someone help me? Also the rear boot light is doing the same thing, I have also bought a new bulb for it and whenever i open the boot the light still doesn't light.
  19. Hey all, My little old R-reg is up for MOT in a month, and after overlooking it myself the only problem I've found is the exhaust. I can't tell if this is the original clamp between the two exhaust sections or if someone has fixed it - shoddily if so. The attached images show where the split is, it's at the SYA8 clamp. Clearly, this is gonna be an MOT fail, you can really hear it as soon as you start the engine, and there's quite a lot of fumes coming through the gap. The car is only worth a few hundred quid, and replacing the whole exhaust section probably isn't worth it. So my question is whether it's feasible to fix this myself - for cheap - and if so, how? Cheers guys.
  20. Hi there everyone I'm trying to figure out which bolts will fit the spacers I've ordered since the do not come with them now I have to buy the bolts separately, the spacers I've ordered are 20mm so what sized bolts do i need to fit them properly on my car and how can i be sure by measuring the bolts a certain way. thanks
  21. Hey there I'm currently installing new component speakers in my mk3 polo. I've done the passenger side with some fiddling(Pulling out glovebox etc) I did that side perfectly and all is working but drivers side seems a hell of a lot trickier with less room. I'm wondering if anyone knows where the group of wires going into the door is clipped in the dash underneath the steering wheel. I can't feel anything and I need to try and get some slack in the wires to work with. Hopefully someone else has already done this and can explain what they did that would be helpful, thank you. Also how to get to the top tweeter from underneath would be handy, can't see how you get to it lol.

    Polo 6n1 Pick-Up

    Hey, so this is my first post - so the this is a project that me and my dad did a few years back, sadly we never got to finish this dew to not having a garage but i have not seen no one trying this so please enjoy.
  23. Hi all, Here in Australia we only got 1 model of 6n1 polo (AEE 1.6 75hp) there the only options that we could choose were pretty much the colour. From what I can tell they got the 180mm drums but at some stage they released a 'trek' model which came with a mountain bike and roof racks, but it would also seem that it came with the 200mm drums and the roller wheel bearings as opposed to the tapered or conical (whatever you call it) ones that normal 6n1's got. One of the cars that I am wrecking at the moment has these larger 200mm drums on it and I was wondering... Is it worth changing my daily driver which has 180mm's over to these 200mm's (assuming they are in good condition etc etc)? Do/Did they make any real difference to the braking as we all know the 6n1 oem braking performance is not brilliant. TIA
  24. Hi all, I'm having trouble getting my 6N1 1.0L Polo through ithe MOT test! It has done about 125k miles. It has failed on me twice now, both times on emissions. First time round my catalityc converter seemed to be broken down, it was an old one it had on it when I bought it a year ago. The readings that time round were as follows: Engine oil temperature: 83 Deg C Fast Idle Test: FAILED Engine Speed: 2450-2850 rpm MANUAL CHECK Pass CO: 0.614% % Fail HC: 459 ppm Fail lambda: 1.112 Fail Second Fast Idle Test: FAILED Engine Speed: 2450-2850 rpm MANUAL CHECK Pass CO: 0.687% Fail HC: 565 ppm Fail lambda: 1.113 Fail Natural Idle Test: Engine Speed: 550-850 Pass CO: 0.496% Pass When I took it for the retest after fitting a new catalytic converter on the readings were actually worse! Engine oil temperature: 62 Deg C Fast Idle Test: FAILED Engine Speed: 2450-2850 rpm MANUAL CHECK Pass CO: 0.800% Fail HC: 823 ppm Fail lambda: 1.213 Fail Second Fast Idle Test: FAILED Engine Speed: 2450-2850 rpm MANUAL CHECK Pass CO: 0.869% Fail HC: 477 ppm Fail lambda: 1.106 Fail Natural Idle Test: Engine Speed: 550-850 Pass CO: 0.489% Pass The guy at the MOT Centre said it seemed to have a slight misfire and that it was burning some oil. About a month ago, before both tests, my Polo had a serious misfire. I found one of the spark leads had gone so I replaced the spark plugs and leads with new ones, this seemed to solve the problem. At the time, I noticed the crankcase breather was full of oily sludge and it had made its way into the air box. I cleaned the box replaced the air filter. Over the weekend I got under the car and check for any exhaust leaks, made sure the new cat was attached correctly to the rest of the exhaust system, I reinspected the airbox and found no sludge in the crankcase breather. I also gave the car a good old italian tune up as well, just in case. I find the trouble with the emissions failure is that solving it seems to involve a lot of fault hunting! My next course of action is a change of oil to a slightly thicker gradient and new oil and fuel filters as it could be the case that the oil is making its way past the piston rings... What are your thoughts on this? Really hope I get to the bottom of this one! Cheers guys! Melo
  25. I posted a topic a while ago about my car not starting. It's a temperamental little thing and I've still not figured out what the issue is. For ages I thought it was a sensor issue (it still could be) because it won't start when the engine is cold, that is once it has been left off for 12 hours+. However this could always be down to the fuel having evaporated, thus being a fuel issue. I have however made progress towards a workaround. For a while, if it wouldn't start, I'd lift the bonnet and remove then reattach and the distributor leads, and make sure the lead from the amplifier wasn't touching any other leads. I was told sometimes the spark is lost when leads are touching due to dampness. This would 90% of the time start the car, but on the times it wouldn't it led me to believe that this wasn't actually the issue. So here I am now, with my car sometimes starting right away like a trouper. Other days though I will have to repeatedly turn it over, each time I do it sounds more and more like starting, till boom, it fires. Sometimes it fires after a few, sometimes after a dozen. But one thing is for sure, turning it over for a long period of time doesn't work, it has to be repeatedly turned over. What on Earth could be causing this? I can only forsee this getting worse throughout winter, so I'd love to diagnose it soon myself and then get it fixed. I'm relatively handy with cars so I may be able to fix it, but I can't diagnose, and I rue taking it into a garage for them to just tell me the lambda needs changing or something... Thanks in advance!
