  1. Hi I've got an avy and an afh engine. I'm doing a bit of a hybrid. But looking today and the bolt on breather on the block is really unsightly. Is there a blank or an adapter to put a little filter instead. Any ideas

    THIS IS MY POLO, THERE ARE MANY LIKE IT BUT THIS ONE IS MINE. MY POLO IS MY BEST FRIEND. IT IS MY LIFE. I MUST MASTER IT AS I MASTER MY LIFE. WITHOUT ME IT IS USELESS, WITHOUT MY POLO I AM USELESS. But in all seriousness! It has a sticker for every check engine error. The boot lets in water. My front left tyre is jinxed and will forever have a slow puncture but. It has 4 working doors and a subwoofer that drains the battery if i leave it on overnight. My plan is to make it work........and preferably tint or block the rear windows so i can hide my shame. Aswell as replace the...apparently empty shock absorbers... It spends most of its life doing 40mph down country lanes and im quite surprized how well its done offroad. My only quibble...is it only has 1...very shit cup holder. If anyone has a suggestion for modification...useful or just funny im all ears. Currently my parcel shelf is alpacino 🙂
  3. I'm planning to swap my 1.0l 8v AUC lupo engine out for a 1.4 8v AUD engine. My ecu and engine is an earlier model that only has one lambda. my question is which model ECU's use just the one lambda, guessing it's going to be an earlier one the same as I already have now for my 1l, but there seems to be quite a few variations. Thanks x
  4. Hello all, Main question: What type of grease for steering clock spring? Does it need to be conductive? Is there such a thing? Seem to remember the contact area is on the indicator stalk side somewhere? Had clock spring replaced many years back. Getting a slight squeak from somewhere on steering so want to catch it with some lubrication if that's all it needs. Rather than take the steering off unnecessarily I was gonna just put some grease in the gap with a toothpick and see if that does the trick. Many thanks in advance, Simon
  5. Hello everyone! I'm having some mysterious issues with my car after the swap. I swapped everything, it has the GTI fuel pump, but still has a rough idle when cold, and poor perfomance even when the engine is at it's operation temp, and it cranks for 3-4, even 5 secs before it starts the engine.It struggles at higher rpms, and has a top speed of 150 km/h instead of 200 km/h. I replaced almost every sensor I could, it's definitely not the lambda sensor, or the crankshadt pos. sensor. Even replaced the coolant temp sensor. I noticed that I have a grey 167 fuel pump relay with 4 legs instead of a black 410 with 8 legs. The guy who made the wiring, didn't notice the different relay. Can this be the cause of my problem? Or could the VVT actuator failure cause this? Thanks for the help!
  6. I’ve spent ages searching this forum and others but can’t seem to find much information on brake options for the 6n2. I’ve a 1.0mpi and want to upgrade the stopping power. Now I know I can convert the rear to discs from the GTi, but there seems to be very little info on what upgrades are available for the front. Will the GTi setup be an upgrade on the front? Should I look at the G60 setup? or are there other options? Only limitation will they will need to fit under 15” wheels. cheers, pie

  8. WRight, I’m in need of help. I have a 1.0 mpi, and I need help from knowledgeable people in where I can gain power - if any at all. Now, I’ll be using this for Club1000, so there are limits in what I can do to the car. The rules of Club1000 are; • Road-legal cars originally fitted with engines up to 1049cc • Cars must use the original chassis and original motors with original un-modified internals, only like-for-like replacements are allowed. No fitting Fiesta engines to Pumas, no de-stroking a 1.4 K-series to 1.0, or fitting Schrick cams to a Polo. • Standard cam-timing, standard pulleys.No bike engine kit-cars, no turbos/superchargers (original or aftermarket), no nitrous, no methanol.Intakes and exhausts are free. (Remember those cams and cranks are stock, so your £4k Jenvey throttle bodies aren’t going to have much of an effect) • Minimum safety requirements for participation on track will be half-cage, fixed-back bucket seat and road-legal 4-point harness, helmet and a hand-held fire extinguisher securely fastened. • A control tyre will be chosen that offers a good blend of performance and price and availability in the relevant sizes (13″, 14″ and 15″). Expect a maximum width of 165 to 175! • Suspension: Dampers, springs and anti-roll bars are free, BUT no coil-overs or height adjustable platforms. • Weight-saving is fine, but ultimately the car should be considered road-legal by the Germans when entering the Nürburgring. So don’t think you can cut the roof off, or replace the windscreen with a sheet of sticky-back plastic. Glass front windscreens and intact body panels are compulsory, as are mirrors and windscreen wipers! • Dashboards must be stock, door-cards must protect both driver and passenger from any sharp-edges. So first I’ll be ditching the interior and any other weight I can - suggestions welcome. Then I’ll replace the exhaust system with a custom one - i’m guessing the cat restricts the flow a fair amount. But then where next? ECU? Throttle body? Yes I know it’s a 1 litre mpi, but that’s what makes Club1000 fun. All the help and suggestions are welcomed. cheers, pie
  9. So, I’m looking at buying a 2000 6n2, 1.0 mpi. Apparently it “needs a new gearbox” but have also been told “it was stuck in gear, and could be a selector issue”. Now, this car will be a track car (keeping the 1.0 mpi) and potentially a daily (whilst my T4 gets some much needed loving). So what gearbox would be best? I am assuming the gear ratios are different from the 1.0 to the 1.4? Will a diesel gearbox fit - and are there any benefits, or boxes to avoid? Anywhere I can find the ratios of the 6n2 boxes? Many thanks in advance, pie
  10. So the other day after laughing at the lemon of a polo i own. The radio lost power. Totally at random. After checking radio fuses. And getting the multimeter out i noticed switched live was dead. I see alot of people with this problem. My problem was the 5a mini blade fuse. Location F16 ignition switch "s" contact. Just replaced and will update if it blows again. But i thought this might help someone. If anyone has the same/similer problem please comment. Theirs not enough info on 6n2 radio faults !!! Peace

    Here we have for sale my Polo that I have owned for over 6 years. It has 4 Months MOT ( April 19th 2019 ) In the time I have had her I have replaced the following Waterpump & Cambelt Front Suspension springs and top mounts Exhaust Back box Battery The millage is currently at 114,000 miles however may increase slightly as its still in use. The bodywork and interior are in great condition with no scratches, rust or tears. Unfortunately she does have 2 slight issues, the first is a intermittent issue with the airbag light, my mechanic says it may be the "squib" a part between the steering wheel and dashboard. The other is that the central locking fob was lost prior to my ownership, You still have central locking by putting the key in the door, however you must put the key in the ignition within 30 seconds of opening the door to prevent the alarm going off. She has been an excellent runner, but I have purchased an upgrade so it's time to let her go to a new home. Please feel free to contact me with any questions. Less


  12. Hello again. With clearly the most malody ridden polo! So few days ago it wouldnt start managed to coax it to life after a good 10sec of starter motor and full gas it started coughing....slowly. Then it has been fine since. Then yesterdsy did it again but started alot easier. Then today. Tosay it needed a push start and took us a good 45min to get it going. Now i notice the thermostat seems to not be working on dash. And before all of this my 02 sensor is still needing replacement. Is any of this related or is my car just a lemon. Thank you again!!!!!
  13. Hey guys and girls! First post here but I’ve been looking through these forums for a couple months now and they’ve been so useful! Absolutely love my Polo 6N2, my first car and I couldn’t be happier! But I do have one reoccurring problem which is really starting to annoy me. I keep getting a check engine light come on, and after scanning the ECU I get the following code: P0134 - O2 Sensor Circuit No Activity Detected (Bank 1 Sensor 1) Got my local mechanic to replace the lambda sensor. Car worked perfect for a couple weeks until I got another P0134. He said that the part was faulty (its a genuine Bosch part cost me £130) and he replaced it. Now a couple months later I’m getting the P0134 error again and the lambda sensor is not working (poor economy, poor performance). I thought originally it could be wiring related but since the new sensor worked for a couple months I thought it must be the sensor. I don’t know what to do and I doubt my mechanic is going to replace the part again (he always wants the car in for ‘diagnostics’ and basically hates my pride and joy). Side note: recently under hard acceleration every now and again cylinder 3 will misfire (assume I need to fit new spark plugs in). Could this in anyway cause the lambda to fail? Really annoying that the car is currently slower than usual and burning a lot more fuel (passengers always complain of fuel smell) Thank you so much for reading!

    6n2 engine swap

    hi guys just wondering if anyone knows how easy it is to swap from a 1litre to a 1.4 8v thanks
  15. Hello all, Questions about power steering pump. Car: Without AirCon, 6n2, petrol, 8 valve. AKK engine. 150,000 miles. Not 100% sure but think power steering pump is failing. Engine noisey and a lot quieter with auxiliary belt off. Alternator new around 40,000 miles ago and belt tensioner seems relatively quiet by hand. Questions: How much fluid required? Part number for pump? so I don't have to strip it down first. How many miles do these last? If I let it fail on road will I get home or does the pump lock up? Will try and post video of slack in the rotation of the pulley. There is a lot but think it's been like that for many miles. Many thanks in advance. Simon

  19. Hi Folks I am looking for a replacement AHW engine for the better half's 6N2. I know that this unit was used in Golfs and others, but have seen suggestions that the golf unit is not suitable for a Polo because the starter is at the front. I would have thought that this related to the gearbox not the block. Anyone know for sure? Anybody got one to sell? Stue

    For sale I have a set of front girling 60 callipers from a Audi s2 which seem to be rather hard to get hold of. ideal upgrade for a polo allowing you to run 280mm. The callipers will need a refurb bought with the intention to do so but going a different route. Rebuild kits can be bought cheap enough on eBay. No carriers included.

    Hello all - 6n2 GTi 2001

    Hi everyone, I'm Billy. Just bought this GTi 1.6 16v off a local girl near me in Preston. Collecting it Saturday so more pics to follow. Ive had a few breadys, a Mk3, a Coupe S, a bug and a T2 over the last 10 years or so but not owned a VW for the last 18 months. Its nice to be back in the right circles again. The car is well looked after, factory leather and Sat Nav, original wheels and original paint. A few stone chips on the body need sorting and no doubt a cam belt, service, and fluids change later this month. Im not sure what route to go down with it this winter, OEM or Mods. I'll probably keep it as stock as poss with a few discreet improvements for now, but that might change in time. It's good to be back with a VW
