  1. Hi all, I want to remove the oil dipstick tube on 1.3 55hp engine (carb). It seems quite tight but I don't know if I should just pull it or turn it anti-clockwise before pulling or else. I don't want to break the tube since it's not easy to find.
  2. Hey guys. The rear wipers, the rear glass heater and the small front light on my 1987 mk2 polo are not working. The fuses are looking good. Is it a relay or what? Where do i find them? Does any one have a fuse digramm for the car? Thanks a lot:)

    Hello! Been a while since I bothered to post on any car forum's or blog anything or really interact with the world online but thats another story , figured I'd stick a post on here and see what I get back. Bought this little mk2 Saloon about 2 year ago and drove it 400 odd mile in the middle of the night with out really looking at it or knowing much about the car - was told some stuff about it which I allways take with a pinch of salt but this time turned out to be true - which is/was nice! First photo is what It looked like when I got it home. Was told, and now can confir
  4. Hi all, I'm looking for an equivalent to part VW 861 412 319 for my polo mk2 (1991 not a mk2F). The part is called front suspension top stop or something which sound like that. The part is quite rare and a bit expensive. I've found some on commercial sites and often they're out of stock. What I'm looking for is if I can use similar part from other polo generation or other vw models which fits with the polo mk2. I've seen pictures of the ones installed on polo 6N and golf mk2. It seems they look quite different and since I don't have one I can't confirm if their dimen
  5. Hi All. I am looking for driver and passenger door cards.They look like gloss vinyl. Please see photo attached. Any help would be appreciated. Phil.
  6. Hope I'm not repeating a question already asked, but is the intelt manifold supposed to be held onto the engine head with studs & nuts,, or with bolts? Mine has two studs with nuts and 3 bolts. I have tried looking online for photos/posts and had no luck. Thanks in advance

    Willysmiles build thread

    Been staring at peoples build threads for months now, so I decided to give my own a go. bought a completely standard 1988 coupe s with only 60k miles on the clock! One old couple owner from new, it’s a true standard gem; however I’ve now got my hands on it... my plan is to keep it looking mostly original looking but underneath have some nice mods to bring it to fast road spec, well as fast as a 1.3 can be. More to follow over over the next few months!
  8. When I turn on the blower inside my mk2 breadvan it works fine for some time. But after a while it will start to make an irritating screeching noise that gets worse when under braking. At first it stops making noise when you put the switch on position 1, but after a while this position will also result in the noise. Annyone any ideas what could be the problem?

    Wanted Part

    Hey all, I'm searching to buy the glove box lid for my Volkswagen Polo MK2 Coupe 86c 1989.
  10. There's a mk2 Polo that I randomly spotted local to me gave the guy my number and asked him to ring me if he ever considered selling. A week later (today) he got intouch. He wants £900 for it but its been sat for years. It has holes and rust in both sills, the drums are heavy with rust, both front foot wells are soaked and growing moss, but it seems structurally sound and he claims it starts, not bought a classic before.
  11. Hi folks, recently bought a 1986 polo and when cleaning the interior, I found a damp patch in the passenger footwell, it's definitely not coming from the doors/sunroof but other than that I can't figure it out Thanks in advance
  12. Hi all, First off, if anybody knows how I can create a 'my car only' thread to dump the many questions I come up with in so i'm not pestering everyone then I'd appreciate that! I'm having a real problem removing the spotlights on my MK2 Polo. The mounting screws have seized solid and will likely need cutting off. This means im gunna need new ones but I can't for the life in me find any anywhere on the internet! I've also discovered (during the course of pulling the grille to get to the spotlights) that a previous owner has broken some clips on the actual grille, there are some
  13. I was changing spark plugs and dropped the one from the no. 2 cylinder past the inlet manifold. There it landed somewhere and I saw a spark....😳 Appears there are damaged electrical wires wrapped around a pipe from the cooling system. Does anybody know what these wires are?
  14. *(Sorry for the double post, didn't realise there was a specific forum for this!)* Hi all, so today out of sheer boredom, I decided to look up some old cars of mine on 'Check The Car' to see if they were still on the road! Much to my surprise, my old breadvan was showing as MOTed and Taxed! I haven't owned or seen the car for over 5 years but just wondered if anyone on here owns it or has any info about it! It was purchased from me in Surrey as a SORN project and ??went up north somewhere?? when I sold it before going off to uni, but that's about as much as I know! it was reg: G477

    Hi guys I’ve done a compression test on my polo. 1.3 gk engine 1984 gl. it’s got a gk cam in it and gn inlet, exhaust and I ported/polished it on a rebuild a while back. It’s been running strong and fairly reliable since rebuild but I never did the bottom end. Cyl1 - 80psi cyl2 - 90 cyl3 - 90 cyl4 - 87 it’s pretty lumpy on idle but revs well otherwise. what’re your thoughts? I think the compression is too low. I could do a bottom end rebuild but I don’t think I can take anything off the gasket etc because it’s already only just cl
  16. My MOT is up in the next few days and thought I should finally get this fixed, washers don't work I pull back on the stock or forward for back ones and nothing I have checked fuses there fine a few weeks ago I played around with washer pump and got it working but only briefly and stopped working the next day. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated thanks.

    hello all, new to the VW world as i was once a ford boy. looking to buy a mk2 breadvan (not facelift). more of a project car but doesnt need the major work done like welding etc. does not have to be pristine as i would like to tastefully mod it with wheels etc. hope this ends up in the right place! Cheers Mitch

    87 Breadvan Edna!

    Starting a build thread for my mk2 breadvan! Picked Edna up last year and done a few bits but nothing with regards to the engine yet...! It’s been lowered just with springs on standard shocks and trying to keep it simple with the look, tidied up the interior with some scirocco seats. There’s still plenty to do! Looking forward to starting on the 1.3 engine and looking for any advice ☺️
  19. Hi Last week you guys helped me get the old control arm connected to the suspension hub again after replacing the cv joint. I planned on replacing the control arm today. Getting the bolts off was easy. But the control arm won't come off the anti roll bar bolt. All I can move is the old bushings. Any tips? cheers, bastibum
  20. I have a mk2 coupe S with twin headlamps. I am wanting to change to single headlamps. Can I use the same outer lamps and remove the inners or do I need to swap them all out? Would I be best to upgrade the loom while I'm at it? The originals are not great. Cheers Boab
  21. Hi everyone, about to change the base insulator block for the carb on my Polo Mk2 as the factory one has perished and doesn't seal properly. Any other parts you recommend I should change since i'm going to have the carb off? Do I change any other gaskets or hoses? I'm not going as far as rebuilding the carb as it works just fine - why fix what aint broken! Also the vapour eliminator seems to have a crack so I will be changing that as well. Thanks for the input!
  22. The red paint on my mk2 is pretty faded. I might start compounding. However I see spots on the bonnet where a white colour is coming trough (base coat?). Does this mean I have too little of red paint left on my car to start compounding? Or can I just compound around these spots?
  23. Hi! I'm going to be replacing my fuel tank soon on my 1988 mk2 breadvan as it's got the typical leak around the filler neck. Is there any other parts I should be replacing at the same time as the fuel tank? Any help would be appreciated, thank you

  25. Help, I am in the process of replacing the cv joint on my '84 breadvan. Getting the ball joint loose was already a pain in the ####. But getting the control arm back on the hub again is even harder. It does not seem to align, when I try to push up the hub with a jack it also pushes outward. What should I do?
