  1. According to my mechanic my Polo 86C won't start because it need a new ignition coil. The replacement Bosh coil is £500 however I found an aftermarket coil for £60 but once received it turned out to be very different from the original. See photos. My mechanic says it is not compatible. Do you agree? Has anyone been able to source aftermarket replacement coils? I also read there a repair kits one can buy. Does anyone have any experience using them? THank you in advance.

  3. Hi Everyone I've had my fair share of Polo's over the years, starting with a MK2 breadvan when I passed my test back in 2002. After scrapping my 6n2 in 2016, I had been itching to get another classic. Whilst visiting the Isle of Skye for a week back in July 2016, I spotted this late model MK2 Polo Country lying at the end of someones driveway. I had a snoop around, and despite looking a tad unloved, it was clean and only had 39k miles showing. I put a note through the door asking if it was for sale, and heard nothing for the remainder of my time there. I went h

    Mk2f Polo CL 'The Breadbin'

    Bought this as our runaround but also as a bit of a project, or at least it turned into one the more I found wrong with it! Was 143k when I got it, numerous previous owners and full of bodges. My partner (who is a kiwi) called it the 'Breadbin' instead of breadvan and it kind of stuck! Here it was when I picked it up - had no idea what I was getting myself into... The first drive was interesting getting used to such a spartan car (last car was a Volvo 240, although I had a Trabant 601 before that so don't know what I was complaining about!) Huge list of un-photographed f

    MK2 breadvan Formel E with SSA

    Hello everyone, my name is Brett and I live near Southend in Essex. I have recently purchased my first Polo, a MK2 Breadvan Formel E. It is the second VW I have owned after having a MK1 golf about 10 years ago. I was looking for something retro that I could use as an almost daily alongside my family car that wasn't as big of a project as my classic mini. Here are some details on the car Model: MK2 breadvan Trim: Polo C Formel E with SSA Colour: silver Year: 1985 Registration: B832MSF Mileage: 93,000 Modifications: Weber carb and some w
  8. Hi, I am buying a be polo mk2 coupe s 86c 1.3 and the speedo doesn’t work and I was wandering where I should start to look, any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks.
  9. So my car is burning some oil notice it when the car is warmed up get blueish smoke when at a stop idling then pulls away i.e. Traffic lights seems to be ok on the move but then noticeable on the overrun Did a compression test with engine hot Cy1 180psi Cyl 2 180.5 psi Cyl 3 165 psi Cyl 4 180 psi Cyl 3 is a little low but would think is still above spec? Then got a camera down bores to see pistons in order cyl 1 first pic etc Cyl 3 looks the cleanest Also do these look like standard G40 pistons cant really tell?
  10. I'm running stock springs (1 coil cut out all round 15-20m low) and stock shocks at the moment on my 84 bready. I like having the travel on the stock springs because my local routes have shite bumps. I just want better damping performance and more progressive shocks for the roll. Has anyone tried these shocks? I would consider getting sportier springs too but its my daily so not that fussed, its already fun right now while feeling chilled to drive, crashy thumps wise. Also just to mention i have a pair of powerflex ARB polly bushings if anyone wants them off me. Cheers
  11. I have a 1977 Derby 1.3 that drives just fine but needs some rust and technical repair. Body parts seem to be very rare if not impossible to find. Have most of it sorted out, but more parts and more power would be nice. Having owned a G40 before, I miss that engine... Now... I have been offered a cirka 1993 Polo G40 with a turbo, aftermarket subframe, coilovers +++ for a sensible amount of money. How much of the 86c parts will fit my MK1 Derby? Will the subframe + motor, suspension and brakes be bolt on? How about the doors..? Is there a cross reference list available s
  12. Any ideas of the strongest box for an 86c 1.3. Or where I can get uprated gear set.
  13. I've been given a MK3 golf with a 1.4 abd that I plan on putting into my mk2f that's currently got a 4 speed box so will need a 5 speed. Whats the best box too run?

    86C Panel Van

    Hi Guys, Just signed up to club polo, about to pick up a legit 86c panel van this weekend!! so thought I’d better join!
  15. hello, I need to change all rubber fuel hoses by removing the badly rusted compression fitting that connects the plastic (nylon) lines to the rubber hoses and using an oetiker-type clamp to connect the fuel line to the rubber hose (see red circle in photo as example of compression fitting used to connect plastic line to fuel hose), however i wonder how to avoid kinking or crushing the plastic line when fitting the clamp: does someone know if there is a brass insert INSIDE the plastic line like the one in the second photo that I can reuse? does anyone have suggestio
  16. AndysBluePolo

    My first Polo.

    Hello everyone. After 10 years of owning aircooled VWs I decided to try the water pumpers and bought a Polo. I've always like Polos so it was an easy decision. I have had this Polo for 2 and a half years and it's the best car I've owned! My money stays in the bank unlike with my Beetles and T3! It was registered in the Netherlands in 1991, but built 1990. It's a 1.3i. This is how it looked when I bought it. DSC_0667 by Andy, on Flickr DSC_0666 by Andy, on Flickr DSC_0668 by Andy, on Flickr Since then I have fitted a tow hook and passenger sid

    What does this do?

    A few months ago my MK2 Polo, 1.3i, came to a stuttering halt. I was on the motorway and started to lose power, when I pulled off the motorway it gave up and stopped. My first thoughts were fuel problems, I had a quarter of a tank, so running out of fuel wasn't the problem. Maybe dirt in the tank or blocked fuel lines. Anyway, I called the breakdown service and the guy had a look around the engine and pushed a part back into place, something to do with a vacuum. Am shit with engines! The engine started first time after he did that. Last weekend I did a hours drive into Belgium and

    Polo mark 2 roof rack

    Where to source a roof rack for my polo 86c mk2?? New to this looking for a roof rack for the hatchback/not coupe slanted back polo. Thanks guys something like this photo
  20. Hi there, New to this forum, looking for a little help. I just got a 91' Polo GT and the seats are worse for wear, wanted to change them out maybe put some leathers. Ive read on loads of forums that corrado seats will fit in the front, easy swap. Ive also read that mk4 golf seats can swap into a corrado, easy swap. Does that mean I can slap mk4 golf leather seats in my 86 polo? (I understand that it will sit higher than normal) Please advise
  21. Hey guys so the engine swap to the 1.6 AEE engine has gone on hold as my girlfriend can't afford the insurance price with that engine swap done so we are looking to get a little more power out of the little 1.0 AAU now i have some parts kicking about from my old MK2F which was a 1.3 AAV but i changed engine for 3F. Parts i have laying arround are: 1.3 AAV ECU 1.3 AAV Wiring loom 1.3 AAV Air Doughnut 1.3 AAV 5spd Gearbox 1.4 ABD SPI Throttle body 1.4 ABD Induction elbow (maybe a little overkill) 1.8 ADZ SPI Throttle Body 1.8
  22. Hi people, I’m sure this question has been asked many times but I’m looking for the general idea. What is the best gearbox to fit to an afh in a 1990 mk2? Any help is appreciated

    polo mk2f common faults

    hello, the mk2f polo is getting old and I am wondering what are the most common mechanical / electrical issues in your experience. for example if lots of alternators windings fail at the 100k miles mark, I would consider servicing or buying a replacement before getting stranded due to a common fault (also considering most spare parts are only available as aftermarket and they are not so common anymore at scrapyards, at least in Italy) In particular I am interested in mileage or age-when-failed of components not normally considered wear items but replaced on a as-needed ba
  24. Hi guys i know iv been quiet on here for a very long time sins i sold my last polo which i dropped the GT engine in but now im back with a question for the guru's here as i have found a lot of conflicting information scattered about the internet regarding this. First of all let me start out by saying im looking at doing about 3 different engine conversions at the moment and dont want to waste my time / effort on the polo if its not going to work anyway as i have a e36 BMW to take a 318i 8v engine out of and put a 318is 16v stroked engine in for definite. Along with that
  25. 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 car
