  1. Hi all, My G won't start at the moment. Any help would be amazing as it's due to go in for MOT in a couple of days! Here's what I do know: Battery is fully charged and seems fine. when I turn the key, the dashboard lights come on, as does the radio. I can also turn the headlights on etc. However, it won't start. I can't hear a solanoid click or starter motor etc. I HAVE been able to bump start it no probs. Could it be that a fuse or a relay has gone? (my amateur diagnosis) This is extra weird, as it's been running really
  2. Long time, no post. I’ve just seen a black G40 drive past whilst out walking in Woking, in fantastic condition. A rare but very welcome sight. Hopefully someone on here knows the owner, I’d like to see it properly 😍
  3. I am currently in the process of fitting my G40 engine into my Mk2 Coupe S. I have got to the stage where I am about to fit the wiring loom and want some clarification on a couple of things. I have seen that it is possible to splice the G40 engine loom into the original Coupe S loom (something I would like to do as the original loom is in better condition to the main G40 loom) I saw this and want to know whether it really is as simple as it sounds ------ https://www.tapatalk.com/groups/mk1poloclub/mk1-g40-wiring-t1485.html Would the loom then be powered by the original Coupe S
  4. Got a set of front 2f g40 front seats, rear bench, front foor cards and rears Amazingly good quality slight sun fade no rips or stains anywhere Not sure on a price but its too clean for me Someone who likes polo interiors should have it Interested leme know
  5. Hi everyone, I've got to travel over a to a mk2f (1992) fuel injected polo (G40 actually) and remove the fuel tank. Oviously requires more thought in advance on potential tools needed. Has anyone get any tips. I should be ok undoing the main strap. Its the fuel pipes and how to undo them nicely/cleanly so they can be refitted is what I was worried about So, yer, Any tips, or favourite tools to take would be much appreciated. I have read other threads on CP
  6. Hi guys. I'm reasonably new on here - been on club G40 for a good few years tho. Basically I've reshelled my G40 into a breadvan, engine has been fully rebuilt etc. My issue is no spark and the injectors aren't firing. I have fuel pressure at the rail, which as far as I can see means that both the ecu relay and the fuel pump relay are good. I've got 12v at the coil with the ignition on, and I've checked the resistances and theyre all good too (this was a brand new coil 6 years ago and has done ~200 miles). The distributer again was a brand new part just before my G40 died 6 years a
  7. i had my engine rebuilt last year and some goon made a right mess putting it back in.it will not run properly and runs like a turd. it will not time up and i’m trying to time it up with the blue temp sender unplugged but nothing happens like it’s supposed to.does anyone have any idea what the problem could be.ive spent well over 6 months on this spent lots of money replacing sensors rewiring things and still no difference if anyone can help i will be very greatful thank you as always matt
  8. i’m sure this has been discussed so many times but what war round do i go 1.3.4.2 if in standing wing side looking at dizzy and i going clockwise or anti-clockwise i keep reading different things so i want someone to advise the correct way round. many thanks as always matt
  9. Looking for Polo 86c parts I stumbled across a water-cooled intercooler that looks similar size to the G40 air-cooled - but larger 70mm pipes... https://www.stwtuning.de/tuning/performance/ladeluftkuehler/wassergekuehlter-ladeluftkuehler-universell-76mm-3-zoll-310x310x115mm/a-44389/ I don't have a G but thought someone might be interested. Water/coolant at 84c absorbs more heat than air at 20C and it might plumb in more easily and subtly than a FMIC?

    Stateside Polo

    Just picked up this 1992 Polo here in the US. As you can see it needs a thorough cleaning, the previous owner had it parked in his driveway for sometime before I acquired the car. In its lifetime it was sent to a shop to have an AEB 1.8t swapped into it. Im new to Polos but certainly not new to VW. 👍
  11. Hi all, I'm in a right pickle so any help would be much appreciated. I'm due to hillclimb my G in a couple of weeks but since I got it through MOT it's horrid. Bit of backstory: Bought the car a year ago. Ran rough on idle and had very little power so got the charger re-built at Jabba inc. full service. Performance was like night and day but was still lumpy on idle so unplugged the lambda. Ran better (still not great) until MOT time last month. It failed on a whole load of things, one being emissions which were unsurprisingly through the roof. To
  12. Hi all, trying to track down one of these but they seem to be like hens' teeth. All out of stock on various parts sites. Anyone got one lying around? VW 049 133 453 E Cheers, Tim
  13. 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?

    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?
  15. 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!
  16. 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 ha

    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.
  19. Fault code 07683 control limit surpassed has shown up on my vcds has anyone got any idea what this fault is please?
  20. 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.
  21. 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.
  23. 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?
  24. 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.
  25. 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?
