  1. Hi guys, I hope this is the right place I have a polo 6r 2010 and the bonnet cable has been stiff for a while now but recently the handle broke and the cable snapped at the end. I now cannot get the bonnet open in order to change the cable. I was quoted 220 for the garage to fix so I thought I'd rather do it myself as I've done most small jobs before and I can't afford that. Please can anyone help? The remnants of the car are in the pic.
  2. So I've got a 1.4 tdi 2001 polo, and there seems to be allot if slack in my accelorator pedal, it's sat way to low but it's got a short cable that isn't adjustable that runs to an electric box, which is the electric throttle, had it all off but no idea how to adjust it to make the pedal sit in the right place, any ideas?
  3. I am currently doing a carb conversion on my 1.3 polo switching from the pierburg to a weber dmtl, i was wondering what accelerator cable would fit
  4. Hi what will i need to change and do to change my existing rcd 200 to an aftermarket stereo, will this adapter just plug and play or is there any wiring to do http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/151018180106?_trksid=p2055119.m1438.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT thats the adapter
  5. Hello guys, just joined this site to see if i can get som help on a problem i just stumbled upon. I realised during my vacation that i only had one gear on my Polo whatever the position of my stick shift was in. I think it was fifth or third gear... however, when i got home I jacked the car up to see how well the linkage worked during gearchanges and it was a mess... there was some sort of plastic thing called Gaterod (Selector/Gear Lever, Partnumber 6N0 711 575A) which is just poped into place on 2 ballheads in the linkage, it had poped out from one connections and as you tried to pop it back on it felt kinda weak or like it didn't want to stay attached to the lower ball head, but the thing that was scaring me even more was that one of the selector cables were totally ruined, so it needs to be fixed in one way or another. some information about the car: Volkswagen Polo 6N -98 1,6 engine called "AEE" Gearbox 085 (DKE?) (dual-cable operated) so... to my question. As you can see the linkage cable connector to the gearbox mechanics is totaled (looks like it could have been some sort of bushing there a while ago) and I want to know if there's some sort or replacement bushing for these type of cables or if you really have to buy a brand new cable and replace it with the old. I've been searching the web without any success so i've been thinking a little bit and came up with an idea of creating something myself that would fit inside the cable connector, like a piece of aluminium or stainless steel to also make it more like a shortshift feeling. What do you think guys? I'm scepteical to just buy a new cable with rubber bushing, mostly because the cable is still intact and it's just this "bush" that is ruined.
  6. Jumped in my car this morning, pulled out the manual choke maybe a little too hard and it just kept coming. The cable was visibile coming out of the dash, i checked in the engine and couldnt see the cable going to the carb. I tried pushing the cable back through from the handle, but it hasnt appeared from out of the rubber tube. The question is, once i've got the cable back out how do i reattach it to the choke?. It looked like there was a hole for it to go in, but i dont know how i will get it to stay connected. I'm currently at work so cant go and check the car right now. Any help will be appreciated.
  7. Hi there, I was wondering if anyone would mind helping me out here.. I just put an 8P gearbox on my MK2 89. I was reconnecting the speedometer cable and fiddling with the plastic drive gear that sits in the top of the box. To my great surprise as I was fiddling the bloody thing disappeared into the gearbox . I never knew it could dissapear, I always assumed it must be supported by something. Anyhow this means I have a problem to solve. Are these things available? what are they called? Have I buggered my gearbox? and many other wonderful questions ha. any advice would be appreciated.
