  1. Forgive my poor English. Clutch was always low on my 9N 2002, but now I'm having problems moving the gear shift into any gear in the first minutes of using the car. I started leaving it in first overnight so that I don't have to force it in the morning, but what happens is when I start the engine, with the clutch floored, the car starts moving. This and often I get to smell burned clutch plate, which leads me to believe it doesn't disengage completely. What can I do, any advice?
  2. The clutch has failed think its air in the system. Had fluid changed and system bleed. No loss of fluid but if not used for 4 or 5 days the peddle seems to go to the floor and the clutch won't allow you to select a gear. Not sure if its a slave or master cylinder problem. Any advice welcome.
  3. Please could someone offer some advice on the problem with my clutch. I have a HH in a mk1 Derby with an 085 gearbox. The engine and 'box were in a mk2 polo saloon I bought, I've now put these in my mk1, before doing so I fitted a new 180mm LUK clutch (I really should have left it alone!), the release bearing that came with the kit didn't connect to the release shaft so I reused the old one. I finally got the car running a few weeks ago and i moved it a few feet forward and reverse and it was ok. Then the next time I came to use it it wouldn't go into gear, the cable was correctly adjusted and I could select all 5 gears without the engine running. I've decided to remove the gearbox and investigate, but nothing stands out to me, so I don't know what the problem is. Could it be the release bearing? There was some play but it seemed to move ok so it should work. Could there be a problem with the new clutch? Someone mentioned i could have put it in the wrong way, is this possible? I don't understand why it worked a few times then didn't. Could it be the early 180mm clutch isn't compatible with a later release bearing? If so what do I need to do? Any help/advice would be great! Heres a few pics, the cleaner looking release bearing is the new one that wouldn't connect to the release shaft, and heres a pic of my engine bay because its pretty 🙂
  4. Hi, I have just been quoted 390 pounds for a clutch change on my 11 plate 1.2 tdi. Is this a good price? They told me its quite a difficult job on this polo so i just wanted to get your thoughts on it. Thanks Dean
  5. I'm going to need to replace my clutch and maybe my flywheel soon, I was wondering what performance clutches fit this car as all of the ones I've found so far are for the 1.9tdi, is this same size and will it fit?
  6. Hello all i'm hoping someone can offer me some guidance. The release bearing / guide sleeve went on my polo 1.4 16v 75hp aua engine . Had the garage repair it with my parts which was a borg and beck 3pc clutch and generic guide sleeve. After 60 miles it failed again. Seeing how it could have been my cheap arse i got a genuine vag guide sleeve and an luk bearing which is what the garage said all i needed and recommended a cable as it was ropey (which to be fair i knew it was) now. After 500 miles its failed AGAIN. I also had AA confirm the release bearing had gone before getting shamefully towed home a 3rd time. Also just a bit more detail in those 500 miles the clutch was juddery as hell when engaging, but this is the first time ive had a new clutch so wasnt sure if this was bedding in or something not right. My question is, is there something else thst is causing the guide/bearing to fail or am i able to point fingers at the garage for mucking it up. Thanks all
  7. Hi all, Can anyone give me instructions on how to change a clutch in a polo 1.2 54 plate 9n please, the clutch has been slipping slowly for few weeks now is slipping bad on heavy acceleration, also would I need to bleed the clutch after fitting? thanks all
  8. I've had a good look through previous posts and FAQs to see if anyone else described the same thing I've got but to no avail - apologies if this question is being re-asked! Since i've owned this Mk2f I've noticed a knocking / clunking / stall-like vibration when setting off from a standstill. This usually happened when the car was cold and running rich - just took some extra revs and a longer clutch release and it'd be fine. I just assumed it was a stalling noise as it would always go away once the engine was up to temp and got its oompf back. However today it manifest itself throughout a long drive and so I'm starting to wonder if it isn't something failing slowly. Any advice what to look for would be much appreciated! The noise almost sounds like its on the left hand side of the bay and judging by the conditions needed to make the noise I'm assuming its to do with the clutch. There isn't any noise when changing from 2nd to 3rd or when changing from 1st to second when in a slow roll (like in traffic) - I.e. the noise only happens when the engine speed is high and the drive speed is very low or zero (when the clutch is under the heaviest load?). Its a '93 Mk2f so has an un-adjustable clutch cable. Should I be looking through the inspection plate to check the friction surface thickness first? Has anyone else had this awful clonking before? Thanks for the help!
