  1. I have a metallic blue 6n2 2000 W reg Polo 1.4 16v SE with a blue/black Recaro colour concept set of seats from a MK3 golf fitted. The car recently died from a long running noisy gearbox that imploded. Car recently passed MOT in Aug 19 with an advisory that the rear suspension is knackered and a oil leak. Car is pretty much standard with the addition of MK3 golf blue leather Recaros, GTI grille and front splitter and a modified twin cup holder. If you are interested in any parts/seats or you want the whole car let me know and make an offer, I just want it gone so open to any offer above the scrapmans. I will update this thread later with pics. Thanks,
  2. Hello all i'm hoping someone can offer me some guidance. The release bearing / guide sleeve went on my polo 1.4 16v 75hp aua engine . Had the garage repair it with my parts which was a borg and beck 3pc clutch and generic guide sleeve. After 60 miles it failed again. Seeing how it could have been my cheap arse i got a genuine vag guide sleeve and an luk bearing which is what the garage said all i needed and recommended a cable as it was ropey (which to be fair i knew it was) now. After 500 miles its failed AGAIN. I also had AA confirm the release bearing had gone before getting shamefully towed home a 3rd time. Also just a bit more detail in those 500 miles the clutch was juddery as hell when engaging, but this is the first time ive had a new clutch so wasnt sure if this was bedding in or something not right. My question is, is there something else thst is causing the guide/bearing to fail or am i able to point fingers at the garage for mucking it up. Thanks all

    6N2 Sills

    Hi, So it seems 6N2 sills are discontinued (2016), and after market sills are only made for the 6N, which are the wrong shape....unless you know different? Anyone have any suggestions?
  5. Hi all, I have a 1.9tdi estate 2001 that was purchased as a temporary car but four years later and I realize I cant let it go! Unfortunately it has a significant ticking from the top of the engine it is worse when the engine is cold but still present when up to temperature, I am guessing this due to a sticking cam follower, I have tried a couple of cans of "snake oil" and wasted my money, should have known better but I guess it was wishful thinking So my question is - do I change just the followers or would it be wise to change the camshaft at the same time, is there any other works that should be carried out at the time? There are many suppliers for parts and I would be grateful of for recommendations of suppliers or parts and makers With many thanks in anticipation.
  6. As it states, I am thinking about sticking Rota Grids on my 6n2, and I want this same wheel fitment/ placement or at least similar. im currently on 15x7s (I think, possible that rear are wider, not 100% sure) however I am not sure about the ET. so what I want to know is if anyone has put rota grids 7js on a 6n2, how different they will line up compared to my current rims. or is it worth looking into doing 7s on front and 8s on rear? I Looked into 8js, they sit nice but apparently effects the ride, I currently enjoy the ride on 7js despite the height and would like to continue to as this is my daily. Any input or suggestion appreciated. Cheers.

    2001 Polo 6N2 1.9 SDI I've had this car since 2011 have serviced it myself every year and fixed any bits that have needed doing along the way I've got load of receipts and paperwork, It's had a new clutch and bearing in July 2017 also had the clutch peddle reinforced welded as that broke a quite few years ago and has been spot on ever since. It needs a bit of love and care and I dont have the time for it anymore due to a new baby it would be a shame to see it go to waste as it a really reliable and cheap to insure. It's got the dreaded tin worm on the rear wheel arch which needs some attention before the MOT and has had some welding not to the best cosmetic standard on the passenger side sill but that's solid just looks ugly (painted over with stone chip). If you're after a cheap, reliable car and you have a bit of time available to spend fixing it up this would make a good investment as these engines are bulletproof as we all know. I am open to offers as I would hate to see this go to waste as it's got a good few years left in it yet and I just dont have the time. List of known faults: -Gearbox seal is leaking I keep it toped up but only have to put about 0.5 liter in it every six months so only a sight leak. -Rust on passenger side rear wheel arch. -Car vibrates alot when stationary, think it needs a new rear gearbox mount/brush fitting. - A few scrape here and there. Any questions just PM me.

  10. Hi, I'm looking to convert my manual window 6n2 to electric windows. I have the switches, motors/regulators and door looms from both sides of another vehicle. As my car did not come with central locking, I have fitted electric central locking actuators instead. I'm looking to figure out what wires i need to run to make the electric windows work on both sides as they should, and hopefully to remove some wires related to the vacuum operated central locking and replace them with my own 2 wires for the electric central locking. If someone has a diagram of some sort I would appreciate it massively. I've looked in the haynes manual and it while it shows whats connected to what, it doesn't detail what wire does what. If the workshop manual detail it any better then that would be ideal. I'm hoping its a question of connect some wires up to each interior door loom plug and give it some power etc and away we go. If only... I have tried looking it up from other posts on the forum but all of the posts related had images that were no longer available 😥. Cheers
  11. Hi I have a 2001 6n2 GTI polo and was told that the cup holders from a mk4 golf fit with some modification and was wondering if anyone knows what I need to do as my cup holders in my car currently are broken and I prefer mk4 golf ones tbh thanks in advance

  13. I want to raise the suspension on my 2000 1.0 Polo five door. It's got the wee little ally engine so the whole car doesn't weigh much. Probably the easiest car to push I've ever had. I don't really need "performance" suspension, I just need more ground clearance and stiffer rear springs because I sometimes use the poor bugger more as a van but it seems to cope well enough. I'm actually quite surprised how well the little engine goes. I've had bigger engines with less poke. At the moment it's got the standard old suspension, could even be the originals by the looks of them. But before I start looking into adjustable sports suspension or something which would be overkill on this car I was just wondering if there were some kind of easy swap like for instance would the Caddy suspension fit or something.
  14. So I've got a 1.4 tdi 2001 polo, and there seems to be allot if slack in my accelorator pedal, it's sat way to low but it's got a short cable that isn't adjustable that runs to an electric box, which is the electric throttle, had it all off but no idea how to adjust it to make the pedal sit in the right place, any ideas?
  15. Hi guys, i have a polo 6n what I’m looking at updating the front end. I have a Full 6n2 front end ready to go on! Just seeing if there is much too it I know the wings are shorter but the bumper comes around more on the 6n2 just seeing if anyone has done it and if you have to move or mess around with the rads or the front smash bar! Cheers

    Horn issues

    Hello all. My lemon has thrown up over me again with lovely horn crap. Ive tested the horn and it works. All fuses (and i mean ALL) are fine and not blown. Which l3aves me with the only bit left...horn switch? Can anybody give me some sound advice as id rather run a switch to dash than start pullingwires out the steering column. Or is there something else that couldve blown? Oh and thecar had a slightly higher ampage horn than stock which is made me worry. Ive got a backup horn that is less amps but o ly 1 terminal insteead of 2 Any help would be awesome Thanks all
  17. Drivers side window has decided to stop short of the bottom by about 4-5 inches, goes up and down smooth enough just seems to think its fully open before it is. Any ideas what I need to be looking at or replacing please.
  18. Hello guys! I have a 1998 6N, with a 1.6 16v engine swap, and I swapped the springs from a 6n2 last year, but the 6N2 GTI spring sat on the 6n mount, so it sits higher on the front, than it should. Can I use 6N2 top mounts without a problem on my 6N? Is it the same size, or will it cause problems in a 6N chassis? What's the difference between the top mounts? I know the top of the 6N spring is wider than the 6N2, that's why it's not a perfect fit...
  19. So over been fighting a battle with my central locking for a few weeks, it doesn’t work off the drivers door at all, it will lock and unlock the drivers door but not the rest of the car, (the pump doesn’t activate) but it does all work off the passenger door, (but doesn’t lock the drivers door) I’ve taken the loom out the drivers door and repaired the brakes in the wires, I’ve fitted a new central’s locking mechanism to the drivers door and still not having it, I have now noticed when I lock it from the passenger door the pump in the boot makes the wuring noise for around 30seconds to a minute. I’ve taken apart the unit in the boot and it has no corrosion, no water it looks fine! I’m really struggling now so any help is appreciated!

    Wanted Polo 6N2 1.4 8V AUD Loom

    Time Left: 7 days and 17 hours

    • WANTED
    • USED

    As title suggests i'm after a polo 6n2 engine and interior loom for a 1.4 8v AUD. Has to be a pre canbus model so 2000 and before. I dont want any cut looms as it's for an engine swap on my lupo. Also might be in need of an immobiliser, key chip, and engine ECU from the same car if a deal can be made. Thanks X



  22. What’s the best suspension for a 6N2 GTi? Currently it is sat on some coil overs (not sure who’s poss FK as yellow springs..) however the ride is crap. Hard and just crashes and bangs everywhere... whats the best fast road set up? Doesn’t have to be stupidly low but must ride well over country roads at 40-60mph, this is a proper car that’s used not a town crawling show queen... I have seen a set of Spax ones on eBay etc but would like a few views on different options before spending £400+ on all new stuff. ta

    Volkswagen Polo GTI - Unmodified 2000 Plate 77,417 Miles Full Service History MOT - 04.07.2018 Climatronic climate control Factory HID Headlights Remote Central Locking Electric Windows Full Documents with 2X Keys 1X Emergency Key New genuine alternator and aux belt New battery Last oil and filter change with genuine parts - 11.11.2017 The car has a couple of small scuffs but overall in very good condition for its year, it has become a very rare and sought after model. Very good on fuel and easy to insure. The car is listed on the logbook as "Damaged, Uneconomical to Repair", this was due to an incompetent van driver who reversed into the door causing very minor but noticeable dents. The door and wing have since been replaced; I can provide photographic proof of this. The only known fault on this car is the air re-circulation flap on the heater box clicks sometimes, i have been assured this is the motor that needs replacing which i will provide with the car,this does not affect the functionality whatsoever. £1800 ONO

    Do I have a rare car.... ?

    Hi there, I'm new to the owners club. I've had my Polo for just over a year - the lady I bought it from told me it was a rare car (only 6 versions made), I wondered if anyone could tell me if this was correct - I thought it may have been a sales technique, but I've never seen another one like it ! It's a 2001 Black Colour Concept Open Air - I was told they only did one Open Air Colour Concept in each colour ? It has a nice spec, red leather (heated) Recaro seats, BBS Alloys and the full retracting roof. Can't find anything on-line, anyone have any ideas ? Many thanks, Mollie :)

    Par's Polo

    Hi, I'm new to the site but not that new to Polos. My first car was an S reg Polo 6n, but in 2005 I bought a 6n2 - 2001 VW Polo 1.4 16v 100bhp edition. I've had it for 14 years now and loved it every time I've driven or looked at it. I've recently decided to fix it up a bit cosmetically and mechanically, if need be, so I joined this site for some inspiration and assistance. And to see if there's still love out there for this now 18 year-old car! It has already been a lot of help reading what people have done (and how they've done it) - cheers guys! There's not that many posts recently so I'd thought I'd contribute with my little motor and what I've been doing. It's not very far from stock, but even stock is a great looking car! Comments and suggestions welcomed! 🙂 About 9 months ago I finally got tired of my lack of 21st Century music and the fact that the V had fallen off the front of my Polo 😞 Aim of the game: • Small (low cost) cosmetic changes or fixes - to make my car feel new again or just for the sake of a visual change after having it for 14 years. • Mechanical upgrades/refresh - to keep my car running well for as long as possible Upgraded head unit to Atoto A6. Android head unit for some compatibility with how I actually listen to music these days! Can also use Plex for movies/TV for passengers on long journeys. Plus all the other usual phone>car navigation and stuff 🙂 More recently decided to fix my V at the front, by de-badging the back and super glue the V from the back to the front. Treated interior to a new gear stick gaiter and new mats Indicator needed replacing so I replaced the headlights too. Made a massive difference! Bought myself some Plasti-dip for the rear badge, and then decided to spray my front grilles too Changed the side repeaters to LEDs, black with a chrome bezel but tbh I'm still not sure about them - might go back to stock Lastly, and kind of least favourite so far, I fitted new seat covers with a bit of colour just for a change. I wasn't expecting to be wowed, and I wasn't. The fit isn't bad but it's not perfect, and I shouldn't have got the airbag compatible version because there's just a big hole in the side for no reason . At least it might protect my real interior for a while as that's starting to get a little worn. Only a few other things on my to do list: • Paint my callipers red • Pair of rear mud flaps • Fit remote locking kit • Fix rust on rear NS wheel arch • Few minor scratches to touch up • Possibly refurb wheels as mine have corroded causing slow flats • Or maybe just buy new alloys 🙂 • Possibly front splitter from a GTI (but they're hard to find!) I've always loved the look of the 6n2 so I'm not looking to do anything too drastic (bodykits etc), but I'd be happy to hear suggestions, or any other general comments. I'll put up some glam shots when I've given it a good wash
