    Project Phoebe '82 saloon build

    Introducing my build thread! I bought Phoebe back in April 2020 without even viewing the car. A friend of mine has been ro view the car a few months earlier but the price was too high so he walked away. After some late night (potentially influenced by Carlsberg Export) Internet searching, I agreed on a price and got it trailered to me. Generally speaking it is in decent condition. Its currently sat at 69k and has a 1.0L engine and 4 speed box. I drove it for a few months and it was great to be back in an old vw again. So Phoebe is now off the road and the teardown begin
  2. Currently I have a foam filter over the carburettor so the breather pipe from the crank isn't connected to the airbox anymore. I notice there is oil coming out of the pipe. What could be the cause? A big problem?

    Willysmiles build thread

    Been staring at peoples build threads for months now, so I decided to give my own a go. bought a completely standard 1988 coupe s with only 60k miles on the clock! One old couple owner from new, it’s a true standard gem; however I’ve now got my hands on it... my plan is to keep it looking mostly original looking but underneath have some nice mods to bring it to fast road spec, well as fast as a 1.3 can be. More to follow over over the next few months!
  5. I noticed when removing the carpet that it was glued to the floor in some places. Should I use glue when refitting?
  6. 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

    A710VSU

    Looking for A710VSU - rescued her from a fate at Bournemouth breakers yard back in 2011ish, did some work and ran her for a couple of years, then sold her in 2014 to a guy who was going to do a restoration. Was a bit rough around the edges but a good clean car. Red with grey and black pinstripes and a factory sunroof! Have been keeping an eye on the DVLA website - she was SORNed for a couple of years then back on the road. But I note that the tax and MOT have now run out and it's not SORNed. Would be good to hear it's still around.

    83 black breadvan

    Just bought my second mk2 after about 4 years of wishing I never got rid of my first one. She is in a right state as fuel filler neck, wheel arch, fuel filler flap and battery tray is rotten. There’s general surface on near all panels where paint has been damaged. And one half of the car is rattle canned. As far as I can remember the polo was taken off the road in 1998 to be used as a donor car. So pretty happy to do the work to get her back on the road. If anyone else has a black mk2. I’d love to see it as I’m thinking of respraying it back to gloss black.
  9. Does anybody know the ins and outs of replacing the front discs and pads on a pre 85 Mk2? The system with square brake pads I'm talking about. my haynes manual is from 1990 or so
  10. Hi, I've been struggling with my Weber carb for a while now, and I'm getting a bit bored of it. I have a DMTL 32/34 on a Mk2 Polo 2G engine, which is stock. Jetted as (from left to right, as seen from the front of the car, looking towards the back, with the throttle cable on the left): 70 | 185 - F30 - 120 | 155 - F22 - 100 | 45 Problems: All of these are on a hot engine with no choke. At Idle: No idle unless the mixture screw is 2.5 turns out. It's a little unstable but it's not obviously hunting (could be normal?) Coming off idle: Poor throttle
  11. I got it in my head that I need to check the gearbox oil. I know that the box is getting tired, but I thought it might be a sensible thing to do. Looking at haynes, there is not a lot of information on how to do this. Is this even a sensible thing to do? I've noticed that there's a plastic plug that is very loosely covering a hole. It's on the top-front of the gearbox/clutch housing. What is this for? https://imgur.com/a/r8ExSnc
  12. Hi guys, I picked up a Mk2 breadvan the other day. From what i gather from the guy I bought it off it'd been off the road for a little bit. I looked underneath today and there was a little puddle and from what I can see and have researched it is the O-ring on the thermostat housing that is coming from the engine. I've found two different size O-rings on parts websites but neither say which size fits the one I want. One has an inner diameter of 43mm and a thickness of 3mm, the other is an inner diameter of 50mm and a thickness of 4mm. I'd rather not take her ap
  13. Hi guys Can anyone tell me where I'd find the plug connection for the inlet hedgehog? It's not plugged in the wire is just sat there. I'm trying to sort out my cold start issues and saw this, also need to check if the choke is working and find out how to adjust/fix it. Just replaced carb flange so hopefully no more vacuum leaks Thanks in advance
  14. I just started noticing on my '84 breadvan that it has some negative camber at the rears. It's more obvious now I have gone back to original width tyres. Was this factory standard? Wear? Anything else?

    First Project Car

    Consider this my build thread, as the title suggests this is my first project car! I never really intended to own a polo as I was initially planning to buy another golf, but I fell in love with this little coupe after a run around the block in it. Here are a few pics of what I am starting with!
  16. So I desperately need someone with knowledge on the pierburg choke set up to help me out. The choke isn't working at all, the valve stays fully open hot or cold. I've taken the housing off the sode and checked the bimetallic strip is connected etc. Twisting/adjusting the housing makes no difference. I think my fault is with the mechanism at the bottom of the levers for the choke flap. There's one pivot that controls the rod from the strip going to the flap then there's a second with notches - I don't think this is doing it's job because it won't move to let the choke be
  17. Hi guys, Tearing my hair out with my 1.0 1990 mk2 breadvan, HZ engine code When I first purchased it it needed some TLC and had new Filters, fuel tank, fuel pump, distributor rotor arm ht leads battery And brakes After almost a year it started cutting out when stopping at a junction or heavy braking. I got fed up with it and left it on the drive way and bought a new car. Fast forward a couple of years years and I want to restore it. Mostly to learn, possibly to sell after not quite sure yet.
  18. My '84 breadvan has a working speedo, but it is way too positive. I don't know whether these cars had a standard deviation like modern cars, but at 100 kp/h (GPS) the speedo is reading 115 kp/h. What could be the cause? just a worn cable?

    1983 coupe build thread.

    Hi guys New member here! Thought I'd start a build thread for my mk2 coupe. I originally bought this car when I was 16, i got it up to a driveable standard and used it for 6 months or so after I passed my test, I then sold it on and regretted it ever since! After many years (almost 11) I finally saw it up for sale so I bought it back and after a very eventful trip home (and a debut on traffic cops) I started stripping it down for rebuild. Firstly I started on the engine, I tried turning it over by hand and it was having none of it so I pulled th
  20. What I mean is: do original rims of a MK2f fit on a MK2? Are the mounting points the same?
  21. Does anyone know how this weber 32 TLM is supposed to be connected to the choke cable?

    mk2 breadvan Paula the Polo

    Last October I bought this red beauty for 750 euro. A pretty good value imo, there is no serious rust on any structural parts. The ususal rust at the edge of the front-window and some below the rear bumper are the most severe cases of rust. The garage I bought it from put new wider but smaller wheels on it, so the car is already faster on the speedo : ) My plan is to take "Paula" for a roadtrip from Holland through scandinavia this summer. Before that can happen it does need some work on the engine though, I already posted on this forum about throttle hesitation. The fuel filter seem
  23. Hi, I am after a back left wheel arch trim for a 1987 polo saloon. Let me know if you have one to sell. Thanks, C
  24. Hi club polo, Was looking forward to starting my polo build but I have found difficulty in finding repair panels online. I have a mk2 coupe s The only panel I can find is the sill. I need also the rear quarter around the filler cap, the right side wheel arch. Does anyone know where I can find these panels? If not are there any panels known from other cars that would be a good starting point to adapt and fit?
  25. Hi new here. Actually I used this forum to find my polo back in about 2009! I have a 1990 mk2 polo coupe s It's been great fun to own over the years😁 and on three occasions when I had no use or no money to run a car I lent it to mates to keep it and them on the road. It had damage when I bought it but it's gradually been getting worse over the years. Being t-boned and a couple of bonnet incidents etc. 🙄 I haven't paid much attention to the the bodywork and just enjoyed driving a ratty polo and the mechanics along the way. The biggest jobs so far being h
