  1. Hi, My sister has a 2010 Polo with the 1.6tdi 75ps CAYA engine. I need to remove the front section of the exhaust (from turbo outlet to mid section) because the flexi pipe just before the cat has a tear in it. We think this was the root cause of a bigger issue we have now with DPF light being on constantly and the glow plug light flashing (as well as car being in limp mode). I’ve managed to get the section of exhaust off that includes the cat up to the flexi ( it tore right off) but I can’t get the DPF section out. Everything is disconnected but there is no clearance to bring it up or drop it down due to its shape. Has anyone done this before? I know I’m going to have to remove more parts to gain clearance but I was look for advice on the most efficient approach before I work it out for myself. Cheers Joe
  2. can someone help, just had my bread van straight piped from the mid silencer back, I was assuming that the car had no cat, can someone confirm this for me, bit worried about when mot is due, if it does need a backbox, I will just buy a nice one cheers benji
  3. On my dads 6r the cat light has lit up. He's taken it to a garage, but they didn't think it was the cat (not sure why). Anything else it could be? EGV or DPF have been suggested but I thought the DPF at least has its own warning light. The fault was cleared but came back on on the drive home
  4. Hi, I own a 1.2 9n3 Polo (55 plate) I bought it in July 2015 and in October 2015, the check engine light came on. After taking it into a local garage and having it looked at by the mechanic, I was told I would need a new Catalytic Converter. I was also told that for the warranty, I would need both sensors replaced as well. So after nearly £400, it should now all be fixed. The invoice read that a new cat was supplied and an fitted as well as two o2 sensors and the p0420 code was read and cleared. Two days ago the check engine light has came on again. This time, I have an OBD-II reader and plugged that in. The reader showed one error code, p0420, the same as last time. So as it stands I am potentially looking at the replacement cat having failed only 13 months on from being fitted. I'm hoping that someone can help shed some more light on this situation for me so that I am not spending over the odds on repairs that are not needed. As far as I am aware, the cat is aftermarket. I was wondering if these come with a specific kind of warranty with them? (I asked a different local garage yesterday and was told that most exhaust parts should come with a two year warranty - is this true?). If it is covered under warranty, is it for the garage who carried out the repair to replace at no extra cost or would I have to pay the labour? Is there anything I can try out first before paying for another repair? Is it okay to drive still and is it worth taking it out on a drive to try and clear it if anything has built up? Are there any checks I can carry out to try and single out the problem? Thanks!
  5. Hi all - For the 3rd year in a row my polo has failed its MOT due to emissions, it's been the Cat each time, so basically I've gone through 3 Cats in 3 years (although the first one I broke on a speed hump) These is quickly turning into an expensive habit - I'm just wondering if anyone else has encountered similar problems? Does anyone have any solutions? I've been using non genuine cats in the £50-80 price range. I'm just wondering if there is a popular mod or an upgrade or brand of cat that people go for? Driving an R reg, 6n1 8v 1.0L with a 4-2-1 stainless steel exhaust thanks in advance.
