  1. So the polo failed it's MOT on a wobbly top mount. I ordered the bits and got hold of some spring compressors. I read in another thread that once the top nuts are off you can jack the car up and the bolt should fall, which it did. The problem now is how to remove the old top mount bushing, it looks like the spring is still pushing up against the bush despite the bolt falling by about 12 cm. The spring compressors I have are about 40cm long, threaded one end and have a socket hole on the other. They're the 2 claw clamps. The only way I can see it working is if the bit you turn, the socket end, is pointing up. Otherwise the threaded bit hits the roof of the wheel well without the jaws doing the compression. I would try to just take the whole strut off but I now cannot get the hub nut off as the car is in the air and I've got not impact wrench, I can't put it on the ground because I can't get the shock bolt back up into the right hole without the spring compressors which I cannot get to work. Am I missing something stupidly obvious with how to use these ruddy spring compressors? Do I just need to get shorter ones? Does anyone have advice for doing the top mounts without removing the struts, the Haynes isn't hugely helpful. I'll attach some pics Cheers in advance, J
  2. I got my GT beam out at the moment and would like info help on getting the old rubber bushes out and installing new ones. Many thanks.
  3. I’m going to be changing my inner tie rods and also my rear wishbone bushes on my 9n3 GTI i was just wondering if anyone has bought or knows of the correct tools for doing each, ive seen a few for sale on ebay but sellers can’t confirm if they will work on the 9n3 GTI. Thanks
  4. Hi, Trying to work around a sloppy selector that is making it a little slow to enguage reverse. Following the linkage through - the largest amount of play is where the shaft from the gearstick connects to the gear box. I can move the shaft forwards and backwards (~10mm each way) without it moving the gearboxs selector shaft. I can see a rubber 'bush'(?) moving and can see that there isn't much left of it. Looking on the parts catalog - no rubber peice is available alone. Can any one guide me on which part in the following image comes with the rubber that I need to replace?
