  1. Hi all, I'm currently driving a 06 plate Polo with the AWY engine (1.2, 6V), and as much as I love it (it's my first car and an absolute workhorse) I'm getting tired of it's atrocious lack of power, and as all my mates are getting more powerful cars as their insurance is cheaper it's getting even more irritating. Because of this, and the fact I don't want to sell it, I've been trying to look into doing an engine swap for it, found an AYP 1.8 20VT engine with all the ancilliaries reasonably cheaply, and an 02A gearbox at a decent price too. So would those parts be compatible as I build a sleeper? or are there better pairings I should consider? Also, how much would it cost me do you think? I can get the gearbox and engine for 800 odd quid, how easy would it be to do myself? I can probably do everything but the loom, or is it going to be harder that I anticipated? Basically at a loose end here and can find precisely nothing of use online and any advice or guidance would be extremely helpful. Cheers :) Alastair
  2. Here's my guide to retrofitting the official fog lights including the official wiring loom. The wiring loom can be purchased from Kufatec Polo 9N3 Loom Polo 9N Loom You will also need a new light switch with support for the front fog lights. Part number is 6Q0 941 531 C I purchased my lights of ebay. They included the fog lamps & also the new plastic covers. If you purchase 9N3 lamps you will require a HB4 bulb. If you purchase 9N lamps you will require a H3 bulb. I would assume you can install 9N lamps in a 9N3 and vice versa. but i haven't tried this! The 9n & 9n3 lamps have different connectors so if you are installing a different lamp you will require the same wiring harness as the lamp type. If there is anything you are unsure of the ask me and ill try to answer it. Unfortunately i had to remove the dashboard to install this, as there is a wire that comes from the bulkhead. For instruction on that look here: http://www.pimpowski.de/armaturenbrett_ausbauen_pimpowski.htm Once I had removed to dash you will require the grey loom. You need to take the long pin that is on its own and put that into plug G on the bulkhead. This should be a red one. To remove the connector slide the metal bar across and then unclip it. You should have to remove a bit of purple plastic from the plug to get the pin in. This pin should go into pin 6 on the connector. They are labelled on the plug but you can also use the image below for reference. Once the pin is in then replace the purple plastic, plug it back in and then slide the metal bar back across. MAKE SURE THE PIN IS IN THE SAME WAY AROUND AS THE OTHERS! Next there should be 2 big metal pins. These need to go to the fuse box. They need to go to fuse 44. Use your manual to find this fuse. You will need to remove a piece of plastic from the side of the fuse box, and then the big bit of purple plastic should slide across allowing you the enter the two pins. There is no set way round they should go in the two holes. Once they are fully inserted then push the plastic piece back and replace the piece you removed. Last job in the cabin is to take the last remaining pin and put it in pin 8 on the new light switch. Again they are numbered on the plug but use the below picture for reference. TOP TIP: I would leave the dashboard dismantled for now. Next job is to install the black loom in the engine bay. First you will need to remove the wiper arms & the black tray. You will now need to remove the bulkhead tray. This can be done by removing the silver metal circles to enable you to pull away the fabric. You will then need to remove the screws holding the tray to the car. This doesn't go all the way down to the bottom of the car.If only goes down to just behind the engine. Once that is remove you will need to remove the wiper motor. This is done by unplugging the cable coming out of the side and the just pulling out the unit. When that has been remove you should see this Pull off the black covers, then locate pin one. This should be the other side of the pin you inserted earlier. You will need to remove the green plug that is in the hole. When you have done that insert the pin on the black wiring loom fully in the hole until you are unable to pull it out. You may need to remove the plug from the other side to help you. MAKE SURE THE PIN IS PUT IN THE RIGHT WAY ROUND SO THAT WHEN YOU PLUG THE OTHER PLUG IN IT GOES INSIDE When you have done you need to route the cable down, and then use the metal ring to earth the loom at earth point 12 Once you have done that all that is left to do is trail the cable down to the fog lights, plug them in & test them. Remember the ignition needs to be switched on for them to work. When tested working, re-assemble the car. Remember i accept no responsibility for incompatibility of parts on your car & also any damage done!! Feel free to ask questions if you are stuck. Hope this helps Check out my other retrofit guide on Cruise Control Oliver

    Hey guys I am having some issue with rust on my arches of my 6n2. Could anybody supply me with a full list of supplies and a step by step method for sorting the rust using rattle cans if possible. If not what would I need for using correct spray equipment (I have nothing)
  5. Hi Guys, Going to be ordering coil overs for my polo this Friday! I'm quite new on this scene and I need a bit of help, Drop links, Do I need to order shorter or longer drop links? I've heard if I leave the standard ones in, The anti roll bar will rub and catch on the drive shaft? Is this true? Any advice welcome as I'm a rookie! Cheers!
