Hi Are there 2 types of timing belt tensioner on 1.4 Tdi. I changed timing belt kit on one of the polo 1.4 AMF and it had to be tensioned manually until arrow / pointer was in the middle of the cut. However I have another polo 1.4 TDI Pd 75 sports and the tensioner looks different without the pin or arrow in it. My question is how is it tensioned ? or whats the procedure? Thanks
Where to start??? (i'll make it as short as possible) Noise when idling which goes away once clutch is depressed.. After much research possibly two culprits; 1. release bearing. 2. input shaft bearing. Took gearbox out to GEARBOX SPECIALIST who gave it a external examine (spinning & listening to the moving parts) Advised by said specialist to change clutch as it could be just that and it may be more cost effective as, if he opens it up and finds nothing it'll cost, popped new clutch it, got gearbox on (replaced gear oil) started car, noise still there but a little quieter (a little). So new clutch, pressure plate, release bearing, release fork, gear oil. ***Not fixed** input shaft bearing guys? I don't wanna take the gearbox off again if it isn't that So noise at idle, clutch down = no noise Has anyone had a similar issue? p.s I have a spare clutch now
So its about time I introduced myself I guess, I'm Daisy, 21, Photography Student from South Wales. Currently driving a 3 door, mk5/6n2 Anthracite Blue, 1.4 tdi ( AMF ). I always appreciated polos but never saw my self as a polo owner/driver untill last summer where I had to sell my beloved mk2 golf, due to the fact I was about to start uni which consisted of a 25 mile commute several days a week. I did a little bit of research into reliability and fuel economy (as the golf would of robbed my bank ballance within the first week of commuting ) and was left with two choices, 3L lupo, or 1.4 tdi lupo/polo. It came close to a 3l but struggled to find insurance, untill this little beauty popped up for sale at the right price & was ticking all the boxes, since then I have fallen in love with it!!! Dont think I have a Pic of the car as it came, Half wound down on TA-Technics, on some 9n steelies with wheel trims. This one is after a good clean [bellow] Initially I wanted to put the car on some Porsche 928 wheels, but after looking online decided they didnt quite look right and instead found myself a set of d90's. Took me a while to sort of tyres and adaptors but finally got them on the car and just right too The d90's are 6j's up front and 8j's on the rears running 165/40's and 195/40's. Also camber shims at the rears. I was looking for a set that were due atleast a paint refurb to put a purple colour but luckily came across a set that were pretty damn close! ( at least I can run them until I get the funds for the perfect colour ) When I fitted the d's I went quite alot lower, but still not all the way down still some travel left all round! As it stand atm [bellow] Other than giving it a complete overhall clean, ( interior + snow foam, clay, polish, soft&hard wax... you know the score!) the only other thing I can really think of is changed standard wheel to a 280mm Momo! Pretty smart! I also have a stubby drivers side wing mirror to go on after i finish painting it, hopefully be on by the end of the week! Been treating this thing as abit of a work horse, now term is nearly over I have quite a few plans, including: Desperatly need: - Sump [ cracked and bodged by previously before I owned ] - clutch, slipping in 2nd now - brake hose, recently found that its worn through :L - discs and pads all round ££££!! After all of the above, other materialist/visual stuff : - GTI/xenon headlights - Front Fogs & Grilles - passenger window switch - jap spec rear bumper - Remap - heard its well worth it with these engines, contemplating going straight to stage 2 ? ( obviously with the decat and air filter upgrade) - possible cruise control - double din head unit - new interior (somthing smart not sure of what yet ) - replace the bit of the dash that goes above clocks - rear spoiler/gti boot lid Sure theres may more things, but my minds gone blank! its a start any way, let me know what you think guys! and any 1.4 TDI owners, any head up's on any thing would be appreciated. Will try and add more pics soon! Find me on Facebook : https://www.facebook.com/daisy.m.harris.50?ref=tn_tnmn or follow me on Instagram : daisymharris Thanks for looking!! :D
