  1. Hi all, New to this sort of thing. I need to replace my polos rear brake calipers, however with what's going on at the moment I'd rather not buy new ones, getting second hand ones are pretty hard to find. My question is , are the brake calipers on a 9N3 the same as other vw models, for example the mk4/mk5 golf or maybe even VAG sister cars ,skoda fabia/ seat Ibiza? I'm hoping they are, it will give me a wider search net for the calipers. Any advice or info would be greatly appreciated.
  2. Guys I am in serious trouble. Like seriously. I have a 1 liter 6N2 polo thats almost as old as me, and I wanted to change my brake fluid as it feels spongy, I've owned it for a year and there was no mention of a brake fluid change in its service history for many many years. Starting with the rear right side of the car, jacked and took off the wheels, drum looks very very rusty, Ive took off the black cap on the bleeder valve, popped in a tube connected to remove the brake fluid, opened and left the cap of the master brake cylinder barely on it, popped in my wrench to the bleeder valve (not them adjustable spanners), felt tight, pumped in more force, boom. The entire bleeder valve snapped off with the tube stuck on and the only bits of the valve are directly on the back side of the drum (not sticking out). Thankfully no brake fluid gushed out but I was soo confused I had to take off the rear left wheels off and loosened and tightened the bleeder valve. Turns out my worst fears were true. My rear right bleeder has literally snapped. I cant even pull out the remains of the rusted bleeder valve because its hiding. I did feel like my drum brakes needed changing but changing them wont fix the bleeder valve. So what are my options? The only option I can visualise is bringing a power drill designed to eat metal and to use it to eat the remains of the bleeder valve stuck in, while impossibly keeping everything else protected from it (the drum, brake shoes and springs especially) which means I have to go to a mechanic that will certainly charge me more than the value of my polo which I certainly am not willing to pay.
  3. I need a new pair of front calipers for the 6N 16V. I have done a rear brake conversion and the rears run so hot, have a feeling the front pair are either sieized or air trapped and the nipples have snapped off them. 6N0615125B 6N0615126A 6N0615124D 6N0615123D is for the AFH CLosest I can find on ebay is ; 6N0615124B 6N0615123B Is the AFH for 252mm discs and standard 6N has 234mm discs?
  4. Having done the 6n2 brake rear conversion i notice the rear brake discs are burning hot after a ten minute drive. The front are warm/cool enough to touch. Is this normal?
  5. i have read the sticky. i got all the 6N2 rear brake parts. bar the handbrake cable. what about ABS? does conversion get rid of ABS edit: also the 6n2 rear discs come in two sizes. 226mm and 232mm, would it be okay to use 226mmm to allow more space for 14" alloy
  6. I've just gone to change the brake fluid on my AEX 6n, did both rears fine but got to the front and it looks like someone has taken a hacksaw to the bleeder screw? Can't get a grip on it at all with moles, or by heating and bashing on a smaller socket. Its seized in pretty tight anyway. As it had got dark i tried continuing the change by taking the brake hoses off the calipers and just letting the fluid run clean, then tightening again. This was probably a stupid move as the brakes have basically lost all power, only biting the tiniest bit when the pedal's on the floor 😞 Is there any way to do this? Don't want to take the calipers off as the rubber boot on the bolts is also missing, ie a horrible, rusty, dirty job. Cheers
  7. I’ve spent ages searching this forum and others but can’t seem to find much information on brake options for the 6n2. I’ve a 1.0mpi and want to upgrade the stopping power. Now I know I can convert the rear to discs from the GTi, but there seems to be very little info on what upgrades are available for the front. Will the GTi setup be an upgrade on the front? Should I look at the G60 setup? or are there other options? Only limitation will they will need to fit under 15” wheels. cheers, pie
  8. Would a car fail a MOT if short lengths of brake hoses were used directly screwed in the master cylinder to allow it to be removed from the servo and moved out of the way temporarily so the engine can be removed without the need to connect the brake pipes and bleed the brake system again ?
  9. So I was looking at the FAQ into what calipers carriers and disks to buy and throw on my mk3 polo but all I could find was like 10 years out of date. So I will pose this question to you lot can anyone just give me a definite parts list for what to buy that will work?? Ideally id like to fit bigger disks in as I have 15" inch wheels so a little bit more room, but if not just improved width for a vented rotor. Thanks in advance thing
  10. The sensor plug on my 9n3 is completely smashed. Not the wire from the pad, but the receiving plug. Can I simply splice another in? Guessing it will be tricky keeping it dry... (The loom has a split cable - one going to the ABS sensor and the other for the brake pad wear sensor). Any pointers would be great.
  11. Hello, Bled the brakes on the polo on sat and all felt good, a little extra travel but firm braking. Using it to day and pedal travel has got longer Also noticed that at idle if i pump the brake the idle goes up by 500 All calipers were new last jan with pads and discs Seal between servo and master cylinder?

    EPC light

    Hi guys, I currently have a problem with my car and just wondering if anyone can help me out at all. The EPC signal is coming up on my car and I'm not really sure what it is. My car is currently not in use as I'm no longer learning in it and waiting for my test to come up, this has caused a flat battery. The battery went flat the other month and I jump started it using a friends car and on that day the car worked and drove perfectly fine and no signals came up, however it's not been used since, hence the flat battery again, but a few days after this I checked the car again and the EPC light came on. Does anyone know what the problem may be when this signal appears and if it's easily fixable? Thanks :)
  13. At the moment the master cylinder is out in the open, I was wondering could I use a wilwood master cylinder to tuck it inside the car so its hidden inside.
  14. Morning all, I have an ABS/ESP light on issue and whilst Googling for some pointers I found a whole host of threads from Club Polo, really really helpful people on those threads but couldn't quite find the answer to my problem. So the ABS/ESP light came on recently and after some reading up decided it was likely a faulty sensor. It was due into VW for a cambelt change only a day or so later so thought I would leave it and let them diagnose it. Anyway as part of their 'visual health check' they kindly advised the front right speed sensor was faulty. They quoted a vast sum to change it and I had already priced up a replacement through ECP, so kindly declined their offer. So I changed the front right sensor which was straight forward, old one was quite greasy/mucky but looked ok. Anyway new one fitted, popped to my local garage and had them plug in and rest the lights - they only came back on!!! Reader still indicating front right faulty speed sensor which is obviously brand new. So I am bamboozled, read a lot about fuses on/around the battery on older models which have proven faulty but not sure that applies to my 6R? Clearly want to get it sorted so any advice/pointers as what to check/eliminate next would be most welcome. Si
