  5. 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

  7. 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 home, slightly deflated and expecting never to see it again. In November 2016, I received a call from the owner asking if I was still interested. The owner told me it had been her mothers car, which she had bought brand new in 1990. When her mother gave up driving, it passed to her in 2006. It has a fully stamped service book, original keys, dealer plates, tax disc holder etc. Unfortunately I had just spent all my spare funds buying a MK1 Golf Cabriolet, so I very reluctantly had to pass up on it. In 2017 I found myself with some spare money, but I had lost the owners number. I made some attempts at reaching out to them via local Facebook groups, but this was unsuccessful. I even had a friend who was passing the area attempt to make contact, but the Polo was nowhere to be seen. Fast forward two years to November 2018, by which point the dream had long been buried. The owner contacted me again out the blue, asking if I would still be interested. Of course I jumped at the chance, and after several phone calls arranging the logistics, I collected it on the 8th of December 2018 on the back of my brother-in-law's pick up. After a 5 hour - 160 mile drive over some of Scotlands nicest roads, we arrived back in Ayrshire where the Polo was put into the garage for some light restoration work. Over December and January we got the car running. It didn't need much, a new battery, a light service (filters, plugs, belts etc), some fresh fuel and away it went. The exhaust was beyond repair though so a replacement was sourced and fitted. In early February we took it a drive around some farm roads to get it up to temperature. This gave us a chance to iron out a few idling issues caused by the automatic choke. With that sorted and it now running perfectly, we presented it for MOT on 16th February. It passed! In celebration, I obtained a replacement Country/Parade interior from a guy around 70 miles away. I had been on the lookout for one ever since I knew I was buying the car, so I think finding a decent original interior in less than 4 months is an achievement, considering there are less than 100 left of this model on the road (www.howmanyleft.co.uk). I gave the car a good wash, which I think was the first time it has seen a sponge in at least 5 years. The photos make it look a lot better than it actually is if I am honest. I plan on getting it resprayed soon, so I've put some MK2F trims on it just to tidy it up a little for now. I do have the original ones which I will fit later. In a few months time I am having it fully resprayed. This will give me some time to source some replacement trim parts that are a bit tired, as well as new "Country" decals. In the meantime, I plan on installing some new speakers (it still has the original Panasonic cassette deck) and really just enjoy it along with my MK1 Golf Cabby. I'll update this thread with any progress as I go. If anyone has instagram, I post on there regularly (@stevenvw.co.uk) or on my website at www.stevenvw.co.uk. Happy to hear any comments or suggestions 🙂 Steven

    '88 Breadvan

    This is my first car, a 1988 Polo breadvan. Currently completely stock and my first priority is to sort out the paintwork which has a lot of rusted stonechips and a large patch of rust wjere a previous fuel tank leaked. Bodywork is all solid however in person the laint lacks shine. Eventually i plan to lower the car on different wheels before chasing power however being 17 and having had my licence for less than a month the insurance is already ridiculous without any modifications.
  9. 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 somewhere? I have tried searching - a lot.... Excited that I found this forum. Thanks in advance!

    • FOR SALE
    • USED

    First up, here is a link to the build thread for far more pictures. For sale is a solid rolling shell with some parts still attached. These include: New brake lines and fuel lines. GT/G40 inline pump, Mk3/Mk2f fuel tank and lift pump. Mk2 Golf 16v Master Cylinder 256mm front disc conversion 219mm rear discs conversion New handbrake lines - No fitted. Later Polo handbrake tunnel section still to be welded in. Weitec 60/40 Springs with 10mm caps on the front on SPAX shocks GT/G40 rear axle with ARB and polybushed GT/G40 steering rack with new arms New TCA New wheel bearings 5 speed ARB and shifter New Genuine VW front panel Also seats, couple of sets of door cards, dash, carpet etc. Front lights, grill, bumpers are here. Only negative is the battery tray will need to be repaired. The car is perfect for any GT/G40, AFH/AVY conversion. I have a lot of pieces for the AFH/AVY conversions but that can be dealt with when viewing the shell but these parts are in another garage so you need to do a couple of trips. You would be best bringing your own 14" wheels are mine are in another garage. The main reason for selling this is I have run out of room so once the shell has gone I can start emptying another and selling my other Polo parts that have stacked up over the last 10+ years. If you spot parts in the thread like the PPS subframe that is not for sale right now so no PM's regarding that.

    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!
  14. 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 suggestions for the job? did not find anything using the search. The reason I cannot check is that cannot do the job at home and I plan to do this job at a friend's place on a weekend and i would like not to leave the car at my friend's place for a week... he probably wouldn't like it too, i imagine 🙂 the car is a 1993 mk2f 1.0L breadvan thanks in advance!

    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 side mirror. Mother nature decided it needed some body work modifications and threw hail stones the size of fists at it! I manage to pull the big dents out, but it now has lots of tiny dents all over it.

    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 then back home again later, the car didn't feel right, a slight bit of stuttering again, but I got home without breaking down. The next day I have a look and go straight to the part that was the problem before. The hose it is connected to had fallen apart. I went to the garage today and he fitted a new hose, but said the engine shouldn't stop working if that part was not connected. Here is the part am talking about. What is it and who is right? The garage or break down service (ANWB, Dutch AA). If that isn't what's causing the stuttering, then what is? Thanks, Andy

    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
  19. 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

    MK2F AAU Tuning

    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 ADZ Induction Elbow 1.8 ADZ Airbox & Filter (whole ADZ engine & wiring loom) Im thinking maybe: 1.3 AAV ECU 1.4 ABD / 1.8 ADZ SPI throttle body 1.8 ADZ Induction Elbow 1.8 ADZ Airbox & Filter Think that should give it a little more power under the pedal? got quite a bit like i said so if anyone else knows of a way to get a little more power out of the AAU with the parts i have listed above please let me know
  21. 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 basis such as: fuel pumps (lift and inline) throttle body assy (injector, potentiometer, step motor...) ECU spark plug HT cables wheel bearings gearbox bearings etc at what mileage are those usually replaced? do they give any sign before giving up? here is what I found in my experience: - alternator and starter motor brushes needed to be replaced at 60k miles - lambda probe gave up at 100k miles, catalyzer went before that - had to tighten all sump bolts at 100k miles because started leaking oil, the most inaccessible ones (need to remove exhaust) were just hand tight - plastic 'ball' under gearlever mechanism crushed (hard to shift gears) at 90k miles - gearbox shaft oil seal started leaking at 100k miles
  23. 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 i may be helping a mate of mine convert his k10 micra 1.2 to a 1.6 from a almera. Which leaves me with 2 possible engine swaps which only 1 of can be done. Iv got a 1.6 AEE MPI engine which has some kind of performance cam sat on my garage floor at the moment which came from a 1996 mk3 golf which i stripped kept the engine as i know the AEE is known as a fairly tune able engine with someone pushing one to 240BHP anyway once i had a better look at it i realized it looked a lot like the AAV / 3F engines i had pulled out / put in my old polo. Then as luck would have it again a MK2F came up for sale locally and i managed to swap a BMW e36 vader full interior for it which worked out in the sellers favor anyway as he wanted £450 for the mk2f and he sold the vader interior for £750 which in my opinion is cheap still as iv seen vader interior sell for £1500+ But anyway i then started searching to see if this AEE would fit the mk2f i just acquired turns i google can't seem to find me a definite answer the closest iv got to an answer is this thread on club polo: https://www.clubpolo.co.uk/topic/13935-converting-a-gt-to-a-14-and-16/?page=7&tab=comments#comment-1168668 Which works out well for me as i still have the mk3 golf this engine came from and i have a complete mk2f with a 1.0 AAU in which has just had a new clutch by my understanding if i fit the following parts to the AEE from the AAU it should fit: flywheel clutch starter (or possibly a slimline starter off a 1994) gearbox (wouldn't use the 4 speed off the 1.0 would use my old AAV 5spd box which only has 65k miles on it which would mean i need a 5spd gearbox mount for a mk2f) alternator pulley crank pulley bit of shaving of metal and plastic and jobs a gooden Obviously the rest of that guide i can disregard as im not converting it to a GT im just getting the AEE to fit and i have a complete engine not just a bare engine so i have the inlet manifold and everything with the engine. however im pretty sure there is going to wiring issues getting the AEE's loom to mate up with the mk2f loom and also the AAU is SPI so would need a better fuel pump for the AEE same as when i went from AAV to 3F on my old polo If for some reason someone knows why this won't work please let me know and i will just dump this AEE in another mk3 golf that has a 1.8 ADZ engine but its slow and sluggish compared to this AEE Also on another note the golf with the AEE in came with a clutch kit as the clutch had almost gone (bite right at the top of the pedal and a little slip) now luckily my mk2f had just had a new clutch before i got it but i have looked it up online and the AEE clutch is 24 tooth 200mm and the mk2f uses a 24 tooth 190mm clutch i know its a long shot but who reckons the AEE clutch disc 200mm will fit inside the mk2f 190mm pressure plate? and work as i read from somewhere the mk2f clutches don't handle the AEE power very well and burn out fast so kinda hoping if for some chance the AEE clutch disc fits the mk2f pressure plate that the extra 10mm diameter will help it cope with the power better. Thanks everyone
  24. 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 carb (thick black one). Only after getting this far with the car today I've managed to see how bad the carbs flooding, if anyone has any ideas what it could be please let me know OR if you get the nail on the head I will PP you a beer token! :) Many thanks video here -
