  1. Hi there, I'm trying to re-fit my front door handles after a bit of painting. Rears went on fine but cannot for the life of me see how the fronts are supposed to go on. I need to line the paddle thing from the lock up with the slot for the central locking AND get the handle pull to clip into place. Seems impossible from the outside. Anyone have any tips, experience or guides? Cheers

    6N1 1.4 Front End parts wanted

    Time Left: 4 days and 3 hours

    • WANTED
    • USED

    6N1 1.4 Front End parts wanted, including headlights and indicators, although lenses can be damaged as I have good ones. I have sourced some parts separately but would rather source from one place if someone is breaking. May consider other parts around car depending on condition too. Kent area or close.

  3. I bought a cheap wheel bearing from a seller on EBay, for £13.95 . I fitted it into the hub this afternoon and it is nearly as noisy and has nearly as much play as the old, very knackered and very noisy one that I was replacing. Please could I have some advice on the best quality bearings to get for my 6N. I seem to get a noisy front bearing, usually once every year or so, so I'd like to get the absolute best quality possible, without paying through the nose. Suggestions gratefully received.
  4. Hi everyone, I've come up against a bit of a problem and maybe i'm just being a bit dumb but i need your help. I was experiencing a whiny squeaky type noise coming from the front nearside and upon inspection i found out that the noise was coming from the front nearside wheel bearing ,anyhow seeing as today was bright and dry i gave it a go. Acquired the correct wheel bearing from motor factors and took the hub of no problem ,and an engineer bloke i know pressed me the old bearing out and pressed the new one back in so all well up to now . Anyway i can't seem to get the damn thing fitting back in correctly,so i have posted some pics in the hope someone can guide me who has done it before,it shouldn't be that harder job really should it maybe it's just me and cars. Right looking at the picks can you confirm that this sleeve on the hub is in the right place as the hub wont go back far enough on the splines to refit the nut up ,it's like it shouldn't be there,i was thinking that the bloke who pressed the bearing back has missed something off or something anyway he says he hasn't..So i'm open to suggestions please. Please see pictures.
  5. Hi, Im Martyn! :) I have a job to do on a 2005 Polo ( Mk4), I need some pointers for a wheel hub bearing replacement. I see many conflicting posts on various places of the tinterweb that confuse the bearings to be either race bearing/ pressed in type...or integral hub bearings. The one I am going to be doing according to the factors will be a hub bearing. I work in a garage and am confident with the spanners and most jobs.... however I dont have a press...I anticipate that I will be able to unbolt the bearing from the steering knuckle and knock it out...I also anticipate that the trackrod ends will likely become damaged on removal if not careful. Can I also expect the ABS sensor to be damaged?...I recall replacing one on the REAR of an older Polo and the whole assembly had to be removed from the stub axle and be put on a vice..nightmare... In short...are there any significant items for me to look outfor before I start or purchase parts...the job will be done when the motorfactors are closed so I wanna plan ahead! Many thanks in advance! Martyn
  6. Hi All I read somewhere a while ago about fitting Alfa 156 seats into a Mk2 Polo Has anyone done this or know how it could be done Thanks
  7. Hi everyone, Hoping to get your advice: Basically I am trying to modify my 1988 mk2 polo to take me and a mate to Mongolia and back. I have been advised to fit a limited slip diff to help with rough terrain/ sand/whatever the hell happens and just wanted to know if anyone has made this modification before? what are the dimensions of the standard diff? Are there any specific size constraints due to the chassis etc? Which diff did you select? did you have any problems? could you recommend a certain diff? the difficulty of fitting it? Any advice of turning our car into a rally machine would be appreciated. We have been told using Caddy suspension is a good idea, any one else want to comment? Finally does any one have a spare one lying around? or know any one who does? Just want to point out I am a car novice really, so sorry for all of the basic questions. Cheers!
