    Hi everyone

    Hi Guys, I am new here. I have a Mk2F coupe genesis 1.3 that i bought of my younger brother as he had left it to rot on the driveway so jokingly offered him £500 and he accepted lol Decided to get it back up together and have a learn about cars, as i am was normally a bike racer not a car mechanic, but kind of enjoying this and can see why people love these cars! So i am in the middle of getting it roadworthy again and ticking off all the MOT failures it had several years ago. Done exhaust, brake lines, few joint covers etc and now it wont start. I am not sure whether to just get it roadworthy or to get it a little bit modded, like new wheel, shocks and springs and just make it look sweet again. Seem you guys know everything there is to know! see you round.

    loom swap

    I've found a "Mk2f polo fox coupe 1993 1.0 spi loom and ecu" advertised for ~£60. The loom on my Mk2f breadvan 1.0 has had someone go at it with all manner of scissors, tape and random bits and bobs. Obviously everything was done with good intentions though the back of the radio is a plate of spaghetti and there are a couple of loose ends hanging down in the drivers footwell. The radio has the reg from a 1980 escort so is obviously a replacement, 99% sure that the fitting is what caused the spaghettification of the wiring. I am very much a novice with car repairs and am by no means an electrician. A- would this even be compatible with my car, as it is a breadvan and not a coupe B- does the loom incorporate the radio, i.e would it be the solution to the dogs dinner hiding inside the dash. basically, the issue is that I have a radio that has been shoved in leaving the wiring a mess, will the loom from a coupe fit a breadvan?

    1983 coupe build thread.

    Hi guys New member here! Thought I'd start a build thread for my mk2 coupe. I originally bought this car when I was 16, i got it up to a driveable standard and used it for 6 months or so after I passed my test, I then sold it on and regretted it ever since! After many years (almost 11) I finally saw it up for sale so I bought it back and after a very eventful trip home (and a debut on traffic cops) I started stripping it down for rebuild. Firstly I started on the engine, I tried turning it over by hand and it was having none of it so I pulled the head and was greeted by this very unfortunate sight So I cleaned it all out and started honing the cylinders only to find this
  4. Hi club polo, Was looking forward to starting my polo build but I have found difficulty in finding repair panels online. I have a mk2 coupe s The only panel I can find is the sill. I need also the rear quarter around the filler cap, the right side wheel arch. Does anyone know where I can find these panels? If not are there any panels known from other cars that would be a good starting point to adapt and fit?
  5. On my 2f coupe, one of the rubber parcel shelf straps has snapped. It's probably died of old age. This part is now obselete (861863447A) so I can't get it anywhere. Golf MK2 ones are similar, but way too short - the polo one is about 35cm long. Does anyone know of a similar replacement part from another car? Cheers
  6. Hi guys, How do you remove what would be the rear door card on a mk2f coupe (apart from there is no rear doors). Not sure what its called Rear interior trim panel for passengers. https://volkswagen.7zap.com/en/rdw/polo+derby+vento-ind/po/1992-120/8/867-84000/#3 Can see on etka little screw at bottom - that's fine. But how do the clips at the top near the window work? Don't want to break anything. Do seats/rear bench need to come out? Any help much appreciated.
  7. Model: 1992 Polo CL Coupe Engine: 1390cc AFH on standard 6n injection Suspension: TBC Brakes: Standard Wheels and Tyres: BMW E30 Bottle Tops 14 x 6 ET35 Exterior Styling: Standard, rusty, bit of a state Interior Styling: Corrado seats, GT clocks To Do List: Too much to list... Better late than never for a build thread I suppose. I bought this Polo at the Polo Social 2017. Within 5 minutes of being on site at the Social it was affectionately nicknamed "The White Shed of Excellence" thanks to @jonPDpolo. The reasons for which I'll not go into, if you know...you know. The thing was a state, had been sitting for a while since the previous owner had moved abroad. However it had been converted a few years ago to an AFH and had been looked after at some point. So as a result it drove back to the camp site and then back home to Scotland the next day pretty much flawlessly. This is how I picked it up. Unfortunately lost the 'L' from this windscreen sticker Got it home and desperately had to do something to it right away. First thing I thought of was swapping the old clocks out for a set with a rev counter. A few days later it went up to visit the 'Death Van' which was sitting up at my mates house. We agreed on a deal for him to buy the van off me so long as I could take "a few" parts off the car... I may have taken a little bit more than I made out... Anyway the front end of the car went from this. To this. Much better I thought. Over the next few weeks when time allowed it was just a case of cleaning things up when I could. Starting with the state of the engine bay. I do love the look of an AFH in these. Also sorted something that had been annoying me from a safety point of view. The Corrado seats have a really tall seatbelt clip. Me being a skinny chap meant the lap belt didn't actually contact me at all. Just went over the seat and flopped about. So to try and avoid submarining in the event of an accident I swapped the Corrado seatbelt clip for one off a G40 seat. Success, the lap belt now contacts me as it should with a bit of room in the belt to spare before the stopping pin thing. Onto a cosmetic annoyance was the colour coded bumpers. As I'd changed the front for a none colour coded item I set about changing the rear. The best one I had in my collection was a 'race spec' one that had been drilled a bit Looks better than the colour coded one anyway. A few more bits and pieces were sorted then it was time to put it on a complete set of wheels. Went for a set of 14" BBS RAs at first which I think looked alright. I then got my hands on a set of BMW E30 bottle tops. I think they looked a little better. That was pretty much that for a while.
  8. Hi all My gas struts on the tailgate are giving up the ghost. Whats the best replacement part? Is it an easy job to do? The ones at the top look a bit fiddly! Any advice on removing the top section? thanks
  9. Hi I've got a 93 polo mk2f and the battery keeps draining. I had the alternator replaced recently and have been assured that's not the problem. Guy from the garage seems to think its mechanically sound and there's an electrical fault somewhere. Had my battery tested and was told it's 96% capacity so think I can rule that out. I'm thinking its a electrical fault somewhere but don't know where to start. When I got the car the car I noticed a few electrical issues: CD player not working - Initially worked but stopped connecting to speakers out of the blue, the player itself was working. Have disconnected since Dash lights don't work (driving at night is fun), but can control brightness of heater switches with the adjuster for the dash lights. Petrol gauge isn't working Wondering if anyone knows if these could be the issue or something else? And if any of them could just be down to fuses. Not sure where to find fuses for this! Appreciate any help. Cheers

Car Throttle: Saving Poly - A Rusty Project Car From The Scrap Yard - Volkswagen Polo Coupe S MK2 This week, we’ve teamed up with Shell V-Power to save an owner’s classic Polo from the scrap yard! The Volkswagen Polo Mk2 is the second generation of the Volkswagen Polo supermini. It was produced from late 1981 until 1994.
  11. Hi there, new to the forum. I own a 1987 mk2 polo fox coupe. The car has been restored inside and out but i am now looking for more power. The car currently runs the 1.0L 4 speed engine. I am wondering what swaps have people carried out and how easy it is. Looking into a vr6 swap at the moment. Any suggestions or can anyone point me in the right direction. Cheers

    Another one bites the dust

    You'd be forgiven for thinking this pic was taken in the early 90s...………..it was yesterday! Mate had spied a mk2 coupe lying at a house and was trying to find out what the deal was with it. This pair then appeared nearby. Total waste!!!!!

    1984 Mk2 Coupe (Zender Kit)

    Hi All, I posted this on here many, many years ago but now it's finally time to get it sorted! It was sat in the garden for years but when I moved and had a secure (& dry!) parking, I decided to get it road worthy! Already had some work done, but plenty to do. Next big project is getting the various bits of rust sorted and maybe try to sort a lowering kit. What would you do with it? Cheers, Ross

    Mk3 Black G40 Coupe

    Think its about time I whacked up a thread for this as I've owned it over a month! Since I sold my old 6n2, kinda fancied getting back into a polo and successive other old dub projects had failed to scratch the itch (Purple VR6 Corrado that never worked and a Tornado Pink Mk2 Scirocco with a GTi Engineering RE2000 8V conversion) Also having done the VR6 thing, felt it was time to do the supercharged thing too All the way back in February I fuelled up the A5 and went for a trek up the M1 to see @grungeisdead about a dog/geniune G40 that he was selling that had a tasty specification After a long catch up and potter out in it, we came to a deal and I drove back a wrote up the advert for the RE2000 (which took a few months to sell!) Finally got sorted for the weekend before All Types (13th May) settled in for a long train ride up to Leeds So two trains and two and bit hours later, got to the car And a sort out of stuff and gave it a quick clean Quick run down of spec Stainless exhaust HnR Cup suspension with uprated ARB and rose jointed track arms (not sure on that, I've lost the advert and doing this by memory! Stage two charger (with a stage four to be rebuilt ) EBC discs and pads 65 mm pulley Boost gauge Rest is standard G/mk2f stuff So started off on my home, however car had other ideas, a gearbox issue that neither of us spotted or could've predicted reared its head, lost drive at 70mph on the M1 near Rotterham, managed to coast it off the carriageway at J33 and ended up having to be recovered home. Saf being the awesome mega sound dude that he is sorted me another gearbox out and I organised collection of my car by my mates VW garage to get it swapped over In meantime, the car sat on my drive looking sorry for itself so got new plates and holders on along with the obligatory WalshC pikeytech sticker in memory of our departed friend and legend Craig Walsh Also at the same time refurbished the snowflakes I had left over from the scirocco with a Volvo dark grey and slapped on some 195/45/14 Falkens as old 185/60/14 Conti's don't cut it on a G Whilst it was at the garage, it had some good company However we found the replacement box (CEG code) didn't like 5th and kept jumping out (also needed to replace the linkage as I'd broken the ball at the bottom of the stick in order to get it out of gear so could roll for recovery!) So trip to Shropshire for the linkage and a run up to Tibshelf to meet someone halfway for another box (8P this time) and we got it in and back up and running (With an appearance by my dad's new Ateca and my mum's Fabia ) So after lots of brapping about all weekend, set about sorting the matte bonnet that had green coming through And all was well....or so I thought Took it to work on Monday morning just gone, I work 26 miles from home and go M5/M42 and about 7 miles away it started doing odd things and having no power, up until it died on me in the rush hour traffic Queue calling the RAC who said its the alternator, charged me up and followed me to work, however a chat with a few people we agreed it wasn't and set about checking the charge circuit, then found this: ] Left in works secure carpark over night, got lift home and back the next morning but with new strap, tools and battery charger, borrowed electricity off work and got it back in and now seems to be sweet, just goes to show, never take what RAC/recovery say to you as rite! That was until I cut out again on me, this time thankfully just as I pulled onto my drive. After lots of conflab and head scratching and new plugs, couldn't figure out why it wouldn't start, I loaded up my daily A5 to get to Polo Social. Upon the arrival of the Scottish contingent, Steven said to me 'we're going back to yours tomorrow to get the G', never argue with a Scotsman! So we loaded up in two cars, me and @CHRIS2911 in the Audi and @kwijibo_coupe & @citrus in Steven's G-Turbo, we got 20 miles and Steven's clutch cable broke, queue all piling in a 2 door coupe to go to local garage to try a repair/order another. Ended up ordering another cable which would take 3 hours to arrive so we did the jag back to Brum from the other side of Nottingham. We set to work on the G, took the fuel pipe off the rail and cranked it to find not much coming through, so Steven had a look at the pump and we put another 5 litres in to give it the best chance, 3 cranks and 1 failed start it started, sender to gauge appears to be a bit off as it reads 1/4 when its nowhere near! (filled up with 40 litres, did 250 miles of driving and it still reads a 1/4, I think not!) Queue going four up in a G40 (with a video that Steven took ending up on the club's Instagram thanks to Dean!) with a diversion round traffic and stop to adjust the timing, then back to garage for clutch cable, return to fix Steven's car then return to Polo Social (left at 11am, back for 6pm) Saturday afternoon at Polo Social saw a few people descend on it to sort out a few niggles and to refit the front bumper (needs a pair of bumpers really) and codes read and removed by Gaz on Sunday After the show finished decided to give it its first proper clean in my ownership and it came out pretty well (still need to sort out the bonnet!) and lined up with Steven and Scott's cars for the A-polo-clypse photo below (courtesy of @Cymro) So that brings us up to date, still lots to do and maybe improve on (there's no stereo or speakers!) but all in good time, just going to enjoy it for now

    Mk2f coupe charged or turbo'd

    I have a 1.0 mk2f coupe and im looking to do bit of researchin into supercharing it or jammin a turbo on id go for a 1.3 engine first but i cant source one in northern ireland. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks
  19. So today my car decided to die on my way to work. Basically when you try to start it, it turns over but won't fire and doesn't even try to. The AA said it was my ignition coil; we have since replaced this but it still has the same fault. However it will now start sometimes but then cut out again after a minute or so and then won't restart. Leave it for a few hours and it will start, but again cuts out. Any ideas what this could be? Thanks in advance!

    Mk2/2f Parts Clearout

    My last lot of Mk2/2f bits are listed below. Postage for most things should be around the £5 mark. I would prefer the larger parts be collected from me in Southampton, but if this isn't practical, I can obtain a quote for shipping (although it might be fair bit more). I've posted pictues of some of the parts below, but can get pictures of any other parts on request. Interior TIM Boost guage £5 Mk2 headlight switch £1 Mk2 hazard light switch £1 Mk2 fog light switch £1 Mk2 heated rear window switch Mk2 full seatbelt set £5 Mk2 indicator stalk £3 5 speed gearknob £2 Mk2 Coupe home made parcel shelf with Pioneer TS-A1703i speakers; made from 18mm MDF and braced to prevent warping; may split speakers £20 Mk2 glovebox; interior lining has fallen away slightly (see picture) £5 Mk2 back carpet; rear section only* £5 Exterior Mk2 Headlights (pair) £10 Mk2 Coupe rear lights (pair) £10 Mk2 Orange side indicators (pair) Mk2 Orange front bumper indicators (pair) £2 Mk2 front wiper arms (pair) £5 Front wipers (pair); unused and boxed £3 Mk2 Coupe S sideskirts £10* Mk2 Coupe gutter trims (pair); slight buckling in both where they've been removed and re-fitted and one has minor cracking £5 Mk2 Coupe rear bumper; reasonable condition with slight scrape on one side (see picture) £5* Mk2 Coupe rear bumper; boxed and in perfect condition £20* Mk2 Coupe S badge; reasonable condition, some colour has rubbed away £5 Mk2 rear "VW" badge; reasonable condition, some colour has been rubbed off £3 Mk2 rear "Volkswagen" badge; in packet and in perfect condition £10 Mk2 Coupe "GT" rear badge; not to be confused with the Mk2F one. These are extremely hard to get hold of, but I have two. One is pretty much perfect. With the exception of a little bit of the sticky backing left on it, you'd be hard pushed to see it had been used before. The other is in good condition, but the colour has faded slightly, there are two tiny paler dots in the colour and it looks like something has rubbed it ever so slighltly. However, you've got to look very closely to see these imperfections. I'm not sure what they're worth, but will start at asking for £75 for the former and £60 for the later. Feel free to make an offer though. I'll probably hang on for a few weeks to see what I can get for them though. I'd rather not use eBay due to problems with timewasters.

    New car, mk2 coupe s

    Hi guys. Been on the forum before but not since my breadvan went to the big scrappy in the sky. Ive been wanting back into the polos for a while and I've just picked up a little coupe s that's been off the road for about 4 years. 80k on the clock and a stack of history with it. Anyone know the car? Bought it off a guy in Dundee and I think it was in Edinburgh before that. Needs a bit of tlc but feels solid. ?
