  1. On @steveo3002's recommendation I had a go at fitting a relay loom to my headlights just now but the idle became funny with the relays wired in so I promptly ripped the lot out. I assume either A) There's something duff about my Chinese ebay loom or B) I wired it in wrong. No instructions so I went with: 3-pin male plug to one of the existing headlight sockets Both 3-pin female sockets to the lamps Red wire with the 40A fuse direct to the +ve battery terminal Both blue wires with the rings on them to the nearest earth points I could find either side. Not a big deal, just a nice-to-have if I can get it right eh.
  2. Hi will be installing front headlights soon after engine bay respray ( build thread soon ) what do you recommend for a better headlight bulb please ? Advice and help welcome . Regards.
  3. Hello, I was wondering if its possible to fit jetta headlights on a mk2f coupe, or if possible anywhere to find flatter headlights for the mk2f? Thanks
  4. Whats the best way to make head lights brighter on my mk2f, Iv heard of a loom upgrade and some better bulbs and someone said just a HID kit will do, so what do people recommend.
  5. Hi, I have a 2015 BlueMotion GT and I’m after some LED daytime raining headlights. At the moment it has daytime running lights on but these are on the bumper (I would have thought they would be for the fog lights) and wondered what I can do to change the configuration. If I can’t have my main headlights on then can I have some LEDs in the bumper lights? Thanks
  6. Hi everyone, I wonder if you can help. I've read a couple of other threads with a similar described problem but not much in the way of a resolution so here goes! Both headlights have simultaneously stopped coming on when the switch is turned on. The sides and full beam still work fine though. For a short while, the headlights would come on if I repeatedly turned the switch on and off. The bulbs are both intact, as are the fuses and the connectors on the bulbs do not appear to be corroded. From my research, it sounds like the problem could be due to faulty ballast? Could this be the case given that both headlights packed up at the same time? If this is the case, is the only place to get a functional part from other Polo 6N2's? I am very much an amateur mechanic (this is still my first car!) but I am always willing to learn and have a go. Cheers, Andrew
  7. Hello, One of my 501 sidelights packed up the other day. I have been meaning to get them upgraded for a while now as the 5W are quite dim, Ive tried those LED ones but I am not a huge fan and apprantley they're illegal. I am looking around for fillment bulbs that are greater than 5W but the hole is so small those LED's were a struggle to get in, I wanted to buy 582 21w bulbs however they are just too big (20mm). Anyone tried fitting brighter sidelights to thier 9n3? Le me know if you have any suggestions. Cheers.
  8. In this video I show how to remove and and replace Headlight Bulbs on a Volkswagen Polo, this is the same procedure on all Mk3 6N Polos, the only thing that might differ is the headlight fitting depending on age of your Polo.

    Hi, I'm new to this site and was looking for some advice. I'm wanting to change the headlights on my Polo 6C Match to LED ones. My Dad, who's a car enthusiast and owns a modified Mark 6 Golf R, thinks I would only be able to replace the bulbs and not the full headlights themselves due to the wiring. Has anyone changed the headlights on their Polo before? Got any advice? Thanks
  10. Hi everyone, this is my first post in a looooooong time, as I've just rejoined the world of Polo ownership yesterday with this little beauty: Absolutely delighted with it, 86k on the clock, remarkable body and paint and very strong motor. A real throw back to my first car, a mk2 breadvan almost 10 years ago! However somewhere in the electrics there's a bit of a gremlin lurking. Here's the issue: With the ignition turned on, turning on the headlights causes most of the guages to work incorrectly, the dash lights to go out and the clock to stop ticking. Turn them off again and everything returns to normal. Without the ignition on, but the headlights left on, this doesn't occur, although as I'm sure most of you know, in this instance only the sidelights are on drawing significantly less power. I am guessing that there is some kind of faulty earth in the headlight circuit or a dodgy relay or something, but before I went taking everything apart (not difficult on these I know), I wondered if anybody else had experienced a similar issue and could point directly to a common cause of this fault and save me a bit of rooting around! Thanks in advance, I look forward to getting back into the Vee Dub Club
