  1. Hi I am fixing my project breadvan and on one of the calipers a spring broke and I dont know what they are called, and I cant find any. Is it necessary? Can i buy it somewhere?
  2. Hello, guys. I'm continuing the restoration of my breadvan and currently am at the gearbox stage. The issue is - the shifter itself has a lot of play when in gear. I don't know if that's normal or not since the car is older than I am and perhaps I'm asking too much of it. But still, it has a lot of play when in gear and the shifting accuracy is balls. By that I mean that you don't really ever know if you shifted into reverse or first, or first or third because of that play. (the reverse plastic "wall" on the shifting rod is broken this is why you can mistake it for the first) So if

    Rear arch/fuel cap panel.

    Does anybody know of any mk2 breadvans being scrapped in NI? Have some serious rust around the fuel filler and arch. Need to cut out and replace the section so need to find me a scrapper I can get said panel cut out from. Here's a rough idea of what I'm wanting to cut out.
  4. Hope I'm not repeating a question already asked, but is the intelt manifold supposed to be held onto the engine head with studs & nuts,, or with bolts? Mine has two studs with nuts and 3 bolts. I have tried looking online for photos/posts and had no luck. Thanks in advance
  5. Hi there. All being well I should be picking up a tidy MK2 Polo Breadvan I am buying in the next couple of weeks. I really like the look of these and that they are something a bit different you don't see very often. There's certainly some nice ones featured here on this forum. I'm pretty used to working on / owning older cars in general, but I was hoping to pick up any tips you might have for a VW and MK2 Polo virgin! So any info on the following would be helpful: - Recommendations for parts suppliers - Common problems - Club events / VW meetups - An

    Project Breadvan GT

    Alright guys, not sure how many people check the forums these days? As opposed to facebook etc. Anyway im gonna give this a go and do a build thread ... bare with me! So i picked up this GT swapped bready a couple weeks a go now, its a pretty basic/ standard set up at the mo, only running a non gt 5 speed box. The car was originally a 1l genesis (still registered as). Engine and box swapped in by the lad i got it from. Its far from perfect and needs a fair amount of work doing. I was wanting another weekend car for drives out after i sold my 1.3 genesis a few months a go, and i cou
  7. *(Sorry for the double post, didn't realise there was a specific forum for this!)* Hi all, so today out of sheer boredom, I decided to look up some old cars of mine on 'Check The Car' to see if they were still on the road! Much to my surprise, my old breadvan was showing as MOTed and Taxed! I haven't owned or seen the car for over 5 years but just wondered if anyone on here owns it or has any info about it! It was purchased from me in Surrey as a SORN project and ??went up north somewhere?? when I sold it before going off to uni, but that's about as much as I know! it was reg: G477
  8. I'm looking for a replacement gear stick gater as mine had total disintegrated. Had a look on the bay but can't find anything. Anyone help me fine one please ? Thanks.

    Sold my Genesis breadvan today.

    Had this Genesis for four years and sold it today. Funds will go towards my 91 gt breadvan project and a new bigger compressor. The gt breadvan im working on will be the fourth breadvan now.

    Kwijibo_coupe's Mk2 Polo C Breadvan

    Model: Polo 1.0C Breadvan Engine: 1043cc HZ with 3F (GT) multipoint injection, ported GT manifold, standard G40 exhaust with de-cat. Suspension: TA Technix 80/60 kit Brakes: Wheels and Tyres: Weller steel wheels Exterior Styling: Some stickers, otherwise standard Interior Styling: G40 front seats, gauges in radio slot, stripped out rear Comments: Will be getting a G40 transplant at some point when I have time. Well the story of this one starts with the missus on Facebook looking through local car ads. Even though when I do that I get a lecture about how I have too many cars, spend all
  12. hi All have recently brought a bread van for my son it is very noisy and looks like previous owner has welded in a section deleting the rear silencr. looking on line no one seems to sell the rear silencr is it no longer available? or does anyone know where I might get one. Thanks Andrew
  13. 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

    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.
  15. When driving along I get a ticking noise which increases with speed and seems noticeable at about 25mph onwards. It is only audible out of the drivers side, I have checked both front and rear tyres on that side for nails/stones, things sticking out of the tyre and taken both wheels off to see if anything looks wrong but all seems ok. It seems to be coming from the drivers side as nothing can be heard out of the passenger side window. In an effort to find the issue, i jacked the front of the car up to support both front wheels and put the car in gear to see if I could get the noise to happ
  16. Can anyone tell me how to remove the rear washer jet from the top of the boot. I think there is a load of sludge in the tube behind it which has been sucked up from the tank as it is blocked and need to remove it to blow the tube through. I don’t want to break it as it looks as if it has never been taken out since it went in. I have cleaned out the tank and that is now clean but the hose is still blocked, if I can get the jet off the end I can hopefully blow it all the way through. It looks as if there is a black plastic bit which is mounted on top of a rubber backing but before it goes throu
  17. 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
  18. 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

    Hello all

    Hello all new to the polo scene, recently got myself a breadvan , 1991 mk2f 1.0l AAU engine Been lowered 40mm all round and ply lined the back and seat removal. Other than that standard. Any suggestion of where to take it next welcome off to have some body work done next week, both sills replacing (surface rust only for now but may as well get new on it)and a dent pulled on the rear arch James
  20. 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?
  21. 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
  22. 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.
  23. 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
