Hi all. I am looking for someone to rebuild my gearbox. It whines in every gear and is gradually getting louder. Sync is fine, changes heat smooth so I am guessing it’s bearings? I also have a B&B clutch that can go on at the same time. I live in Devizes Wilts, so I’m hoping for a Polo specialist within 50ish miles? Any recommendations? cheers Darren.
oldtech posted a topic in Engine, Transmission and ExhaustI've noticed in the past month or so what I thought was tappets squeaking. It's not really tappy; just a hint of 'tinkle'. It's loud enough to be obvious in the car. Then I found it would go away when the lights are turned off, and come back when switched on. It also seems more noticeable when first started cold, and can only be heard at idle or when throttle is blipped (hence me thinking it was the tappets) - cold alternator bearings? The alternator bearings do rumble. If the sound isn't the tappets, is it alternator loading down with the lights? Or can engine load down with lights causing sound in some way?
Hi, Im Martyn! :) I have a job to do on a 2005 Polo ( Mk4), I need some pointers for a wheel hub bearing replacement. I see many conflicting posts on various places of the tinterweb that confuse the bearings to be either race bearing/ pressed in type...or integral hub bearings. The one I am going to be doing according to the factors will be a hub bearing. I work in a garage and am confident with the spanners and most jobs.... however I dont have a press...I anticipate that I will be able to unbolt the bearing from the steering knuckle and knock it out...I also anticipate that the trackrod ends will likely become damaged on removal if not careful. Can I also expect the ABS sensor to be damaged?...I recall replacing one on the REAR of an older Polo and the whole assembly had to be removed from the stub axle and be put on a vice..nightmare... In short...are there any significant items for me to look outfor before I start or purchase parts...the job will be done when the motorfactors are closed so I wanna plan ahead! Many thanks in advance! Martyn
