    What's the difference

    Hi people This has probably been covered on here before but what is the difference between a G40 polo and gt polo?
  3. Time Left: 1 day and 11 hours

    • FOR SALE
    • USED

    As the title says ran these in my car, these are made for Side Mounted bucket seats but could probably be used for base mounted ones too. Work exactly the same way as original seats mount and served me for long enough, Only reason I am selling as I have welded the mounts in.

    £40.00

  4. Hi all, Came out the other day to give the G a blast after a couple of days standing and it's completely dead. Dashboard lights/radio/headlights all come on but no turn over. Not even a solenoid click I can also hear an electrical motor sound toward the rear which i presume is the fuel pump. I don't think it's the battery as all the electrics work and i've tried jumping it with a battery pack. Anyone got a clue what might be up? My mechanic skills are a work in progress so it's all a learning curve!
  5. Hi all, I've just purchased myself a lovely little g40 and I'd like to colour code the lower parts of the black textured bumpers. I've history of spraying mk3 golf bumpers but this has been easier as the sprayed section of the bumper is not textured. Has anyone got any idea how I can create a smooth and durable finish on the textured polo bumper? Many thanks, Tim

    Mk3 Black G40 Coupe

    Think its about time I whacked up a thread for this as I've owned it over a month! Since I sold my old 6n2, kinda fancied getting back into a polo and successive other old dub projects had failed to scratch the itch (Purple VR6 Corrado that never worked and a Tornado Pink Mk2 Scirocco with a GTi Engineering RE2000 8V conversion) Also having done the VR6 thing, felt it was time to do the supercharged thing too All the way back in February I fuelled up the A5 and went for a trek up the M1 to see @grungeisdead about a dog/geniune G40 that he was selling that had a tasty specification After a long catch up and potter out in it, we came to a deal and I drove back a wrote up the advert for the RE2000 (which took a few months to sell!) Finally got sorted for the weekend before All Types (13th May) settled in for a long train ride up to Leeds So two trains and two and bit hours later, got to the car And a sort out of stuff and gave it a quick clean Quick run down of spec Stainless exhaust HnR Cup suspension with uprated ARB and rose jointed track arms (not sure on that, I've lost the advert and doing this by memory! Stage two charger (with a stage four to be rebuilt ) EBC discs and pads 65 mm pulley Boost gauge Rest is standard G/mk2f stuff So started off on my home, however car had other ideas, a gearbox issue that neither of us spotted or could've predicted reared its head, lost drive at 70mph on the M1 near Rotterham, managed to coast it off the carriageway at J33 and ended up having to be recovered home. Saf being the awesome mega sound dude that he is sorted me another gearbox out and I organised collection of my car by my mates VW garage to get it swapped over In meantime, the car sat on my drive looking sorry for itself so got new plates and holders on along with the obligatory WalshC pikeytech sticker in memory of our departed friend and legend Craig Walsh Also at the same time refurbished the snowflakes I had left over from the scirocco with a Volvo dark grey and slapped on some 195/45/14 Falkens as old 185/60/14 Conti's don't cut it on a G Whilst it was at the garage, it had some good company However we found the replacement box (CEG code) didn't like 5th and kept jumping out (also needed to replace the linkage as I'd broken the ball at the bottom of the stick in order to get it out of gear so could roll for recovery!) So trip to Shropshire for the linkage and a run up to Tibshelf to meet someone halfway for another box (8P this time) and we got it in and back up and running (With an appearance by my dad's new Ateca and my mum's Fabia ) So after lots of brapping about all weekend, set about sorting the matte bonnet that had green coming through And all was well....or so I thought Took it to work on Monday morning just gone, I work 26 miles from home and go M5/M42 and about 7 miles away it started doing odd things and having no power, up until it died on me in the rush hour traffic Queue calling the RAC who said its the alternator, charged me up and followed me to work, however a chat with a few people we agreed it wasn't and set about checking the charge circuit, then found this: ] Left in works secure carpark over night, got lift home and back the next morning but with new strap, tools and battery charger, borrowed electricity off work and got it back in and now seems to be sweet, just goes to show, never take what RAC/recovery say to you as rite! That was until I cut out again on me, this time thankfully just as I pulled onto my drive. After lots of conflab and head scratching and new plugs, couldn't figure out why it wouldn't start, I loaded up my daily A5 to get to Polo Social. Upon the arrival of the Scottish contingent, Steven said to me 'we're going back to yours tomorrow to get the G', never argue with a Scotsman! So we loaded up in two cars, me and @CHRIS2911 in the Audi and @kwijibo_coupe & @citrus in Steven's G-Turbo, we got 20 miles and Steven's clutch cable broke, queue all piling in a 2 door coupe to go to local garage to try a repair/order another. Ended up ordering another cable which would take 3 hours to arrive so we did the jag back to Brum from the other side of Nottingham. We set to work on the G, took the fuel pipe off the rail and cranked it to find not much coming through, so Steven had a look at the pump and we put another 5 litres in to give it the best chance, 3 cranks and 1 failed start it started, sender to gauge appears to be a bit off as it reads 1/4 when its nowhere near! (filled up with 40 litres, did 250 miles of driving and it still reads a 1/4, I think not!) Queue going four up in a G40 (with a video that Steven took ending up on the club's Instagram thanks to Dean!) with a diversion round traffic and stop to adjust the timing, then back to garage for clutch cable, return to fix Steven's car then return to Polo Social (left at 11am, back for 6pm) Saturday afternoon at Polo Social saw a few people descend on it to sort out a few niggles and to refit the front bumper (needs a pair of bumpers really) and codes read and removed by Gaz on Sunday After the show finished decided to give it its first proper clean in my ownership and it came out pretty well (still need to sort out the bonnet!) and lined up with Steven and Scott's cars for the A-polo-clypse photo below (courtesy of @Cymro) So that brings us up to date, still lots to do and maybe improve on (there's no stereo or speakers!) but all in good time, just going to enjoy it for now

    G40 genesis

    Has anyone ever seen a polo genesis g40 interior for sale in the UK before just generally wondering how hard they are to get hold of and how much they sell for.
  8. Fault code 07683 control limit surpassed has shown up on my vcds has anyone got any idea what this fault is please?
  9. I’ve had my g rebuilt and sadly it came back running like a sack of spuds.i recently discovered the car came back with the timing was a tooth and a half out.so I’ve had ago at putting it right myself as I’ve done it numerous times but as soon as I line my marks up and put the belt on and attempt to tighten the water pump the crank pulley mark moves.does anyone have an explanation as to what could be the problem and how I rectify it please.
  10. Hi all, my G40 has an increasingly difficult to engage 1st gear when hot. Been like it for several years. Garages have been unable to do anything, likewise gearbox specialists. I've noticed an oil leak from the front of the engine, if that's anything to do with it. Coming round to the idea of finding a substitute box. So, are there any gearboxes out there that can replace this original one ? (By engaging 2nd gear then 1st and doing this whilst rolling, usually works, but it's getting a right pain and embarrassment.)

    Help me find this car!

    I'm looking for a sorn, white polo G40 with reg J987 TPY. I want to find it for an inspirational teacher who owned this car for many years and then regrettably sold it and has regretted it ever since. Any help appreciated! Thank you.
  12. Fully rebuilt my engine and I’ve noticed I have a misfire on cylinder number 3.injector 3 is blocked so I’ve ordered a replacement and hoping that solves the problem.if it doesn’t what else could be an issue?
  13. Hey guys n gals. have a few things to ask about the engine bay of ny g40. Ive found several disconnected cables. And some pipes etc that dont go anywhere. Unfortunately im on my iphone and cant upload all the pics so ill put them in some replies. the first one is this. Four connections. Nothing doesnt work. So cant work out where it goes or used to. Its near the header tank.
  14. Hey guys n gals, had this shock absorber taken off of my g40. It has the same at all four corners. The reason it was removed is because the cap that holds it in was missing. The original cap (pictured) does not fit, this means i had to replace with a standard shock. Obviously this isnt ideal and i would like to put the large shock back in. I know it is blistein in make. And i think it is ‘b6’ variant. But i am unable to track down a cap for one. Blistein arnt returning my emails despite asking me for part numbers etc. Can anyone help?
  15. After some advice really the bottom end has gone on my g40 so I’m just curious of what options I have as to which replacements I can put on.i could quite easily Just replace the 2 knakard pistons but it’s going to be a major task to find them.so I’m looking at just putting a different bottom end on just instead.so if anyone can help please let me know thanks.
  16. Been having trouble with my 40 for a few months now which all started with the distributor filling with oil.since then it’s developed an annoying misfire which I have now worked out is happening in cylinder number 2.im just unsure as to what my next move is if I’m honest I’ve done a compression test it’s not great but not bad either.Any advice would be greatly appreciated
  17. Hi guys. Recently bought a g40. It came fitted with a performance subframe of unknown brand. Since then i have discovered that the wheels scrub on the arms that replace the antiroll bar. This has led to them undoing. This happened while driving at speed. The arm came away and has bent. while i could have new ones made (fairly sure i cant buy them) however i feel that the car could just be returned to standard as in the long run this would be safer. Meaning i need a g40 antiroll bar. my question, are they the same as a standard 2f bar? I intend to polybush the car etc with a standard anti roll bar as i see this will give me the safest handling. picutures are of the bent arm on and off the car.

    MOT Fail help needed - clocks n fuel holder

    See post I put on clubG40 https://www.polog40.co.uk/forum/index.php/topic,12935.0.html Any help much appreciated. Basically after G40 clocks - beam light n fuel guage & New/good condition Metal holder for rear fuel pump/filter Cheers Joe
  21. I'm having a major issue lately... i took the G in to have a shrink fast road cam, lightened followers and vernier pulley. also a new full stainless system and the psd manifold. before the work the boost was kicking out 0.8bar. they didn't remove the charger or the braided oil return pipe but took off the flume and silicone hose to the ic. since getting it back, worn it in for the agreed 30miles for the cam followed as the cam isn't brand new and done 500miles, I found under high revs oil has been spat out all over the bay and around the banjo area and I'm only getting 0.4bar of boost... im going to change the washers to the banjo to see if that stops the leak, but I'm clueless on why I've lost so much boost, can anyone help and whether the oil could be from elsewhere although I can't see that it is?? The timing has been set to zero as though it's a standard pulley... could it he that it needs properly tuning on the timing for the shrink cam and vernier pulley, which is why I'm getting lower pressure???
  22. Hello! Not been in here in years, I've recently acquired a polo GT again recently as a project so hopefully I'll be putting some pictures up soon. But had a question in the meantime. Is anyone able to tell me what colour this is, not seen many before in this colour but I seem to remember VW doing a few Mk2 golfs in this colour. Would like to find out as much info as possible. Thank you
  23. Hi all, I need to swap the seats in my G40 as the driver's left side bolster is down to the metal frame. I went through the seat topics and saw the possible solutions... and renewal is almost is out of reach. Shame. Fine Corrado and Mk2 Golf seats are impossible to get over here in Hungary, so decided to go the 6n2-way as there are a couple GTI of sets around the net. My only question is: Is it s direct and correct replacement? I'm 6'3 and in need to adjust a bit when I sit in to have a bit of head room even the seat is in the lowest position. Will the seating height remain the same? Will the seating position remain the same (I mean no offset to the steering wheel or something else that can be disturbing)? Would the rears also fit? Any help is welcome! Cheers!
  24. Anyone had this problem (Mk2/Mk2f owners)? My clutch pedal sticks to the floor when fully pressed, after a sec or so it starts to come up and bangs back if my foot is not on it. The clutch doesn't slip, but every red lamp start is pain and concentration. I seem to be a learner. It seems to be working when full cold, but will stick when the engine gets warmer. I will do a full clutch job in a week, but would I need to change something else also? Cheers!

    17 years ago...

    Sentimental moment coming, but it's an anniversary I've been wondering if I'd reach. On the 9th March 2000, I went to Bristol to pick up what was to become my first car. A Polo GT Coupe with 107,000 miles on the clock, full of dog hair and covered in tree sap. I still own it. Which means, for the first time, I've come around to two milestones. Firstly, babies born on that day can start driving today. And, secondly - I've not worked it out exactly - it means I've had this car half my life. Car ownership is becoming less common among teenagers these days. It's quite sad. Looking back, it's amazing what a lump of metal can do. It's been shown: Many times. This was the first - BVF back in 2001. I've made great friends, people who've helped me when I've needed it, sorted parts for me, given advice and even helped double the power under my right foot. Thanks Andy... It transported me and my friends all over the country. Brought us home from memorable nights out. Taken us to memorable weekends away. It kept me in touch in the days before WhatsApp or Facebook. When my girlfriend - now my wife - was up at Sheffield Uni, it did a weekly round trip from Cardiff without fault. It kept me mobile. Of course, it's not always been straightforward. It's broken down when I've neglected it or others have cut corners, it's aged and needed restoring. I've taken most of it apart at some point, finding squeaks and rattles, ironing them out, changing the way it drives. I've tracked it. Not a lot, but among those days it's done a few laps of the Nürburgring (and the return journey). It's also spun off the Nürburgring. Which was interesting. It's followed me through A-Levels, through Uni, through house moves, crap temp jobs and into my career as a journalist. It's shared a driveway with all sorts of press cars. It's been a project car in Max Power and Performance VW - the magazines which, once upon a time, inspired me to waste my money mucking about with silly old cars. It's done many airport runs for press launches. And, when it doesn't, other journalists often ask me: "How's the Polo?" I confess it doesn't do as many miles these days. No ISOFIX. But it's still part of the family. My eldest has his eyes on it already. But best of all, it's still here. Finished for about a year, no new parts to report, just something that puts a smile on my face every time it whines into life. Which it does first time, every time. For all the many new priorities I've picked up in the last 17 years, it's nice to have a constant in there somewhere!
