  1. I have just noticed a fuel leak from my 86 saloon and fuel appears to be leaking from the fixed metal pipe from the filler cap to the tank. Is this a very common issue and where is the best place to buy a new fuel tank.
  2. Hi Everyone I've had my fair share of Polo's over the years, starting with a MK2 breadvan when I passed my test back in 2002. After scrapping my 6n2 in 2016, I had been itching to get another classic. Whilst visiting the Isle of Skye for a week back in July 2016, I spotted this late model MK2 Polo Country lying at the end of someones driveway. I had a snoop around, and despite looking a tad unloved, it was clean and only had 39k miles showing. I put a note through the door asking if it was for sale, and heard nothing for the remainder of my time there. I went home, slightly deflated and expecting never to see it again. In November 2016, I received a call from the owner asking if I was still interested. The owner told me it had been her mothers car, which she had bought brand new in 1990. When her mother gave up driving, it passed to her in 2006. It has a fully stamped service book, original keys, dealer plates, tax disc holder etc. Unfortunately I had just spent all my spare funds buying a MK1 Golf Cabriolet, so I very reluctantly had to pass up on it. In 2017 I found myself with some spare money, but I had lost the owners number. I made some attempts at reaching out to them via local Facebook groups, but this was unsuccessful. I even had a friend who was passing the area attempt to make contact, but the Polo was nowhere to be seen. Fast forward two years to November 2018, by which point the dream had long been buried. The owner contacted me again out the blue, asking if I would still be interested. Of course I jumped at the chance, and after several phone calls arranging the logistics, I collected it on the 8th of December 2018 on the back of my brother-in-law's pick up. After a 5 hour - 160 mile drive over some of Scotlands nicest roads, we arrived back in Ayrshire where the Polo was put into the garage for some light restoration work. Over December and January we got the car running. It didn't need much, a new battery, a light service (filters, plugs, belts etc), some fresh fuel and away it went. The exhaust was beyond repair though so a replacement was sourced and fitted. In early February we took it a drive around some farm roads to get it up to temperature. This gave us a chance to iron out a few idling issues caused by the automatic choke. With that sorted and it now running perfectly, we presented it for MOT on 16th February. It passed! In celebration, I obtained a replacement Country/Parade interior from a guy around 70 miles away. I had been on the lookout for one ever since I knew I was buying the car, so I think finding a decent original interior in less than 4 months is an achievement, considering there are less than 100 left of this model on the road (www.howmanyleft.co.uk). I gave the car a good wash, which I think was the first time it has seen a sponge in at least 5 years. The photos make it look a lot better than it actually is if I am honest. I plan on getting it resprayed soon, so I've put some MK2F trims on it just to tidy it up a little for now. I do have the original ones which I will fit later. In a few months time I am having it fully resprayed. This will give me some time to source some replacement trim parts that are a bit tired, as well as new "Country" decals. In the meantime, I plan on installing some new speakers (it still has the original Panasonic cassette deck) and really just enjoy it along with my MK1 Golf Cabby. I'll update this thread with any progress as I go. If anyone has instagram, I post on there regularly (@stevenvw.co.uk) or on my website at www.stevenvw.co.uk. Happy to hear any comments or suggestions 🙂 Steven
  3. Hi, In the process of rebuilding my mk2 after a few years but have come to connecting all the wiring harness back up and am having some issues as I cannot remember where a lot of it connects to. I've tried reading the Haynes but to be honest I really struggle to make sense of the wiring diagram. Is there anyone with a good knowledge of the mk2 harness that would be able to help me out? I can describe wire colour and origin etc and maybe someone could tell me where it connects to? Thanks, Aaron

    '88 Breadvan

    This is my first car, a 1988 Polo breadvan. Currently completely stock and my first priority is to sort out the paintwork which has a lot of rusted stonechips and a large patch of rust wjere a previous fuel tank leaked. Bodywork is all solid however in person the laint lacks shine. Eventually i plan to lower the car on different wheels before chasing power however being 17 and having had my licence for less than a month the insurance is already ridiculous without any modifications.
  6. Seen this video of a mk2 with modded levers, anyone know whats going on here? Id love to change since the mk2 ones are so flimsy
  7. am i right the selector shaft seal can be done in situ ? does all the oil dump out when the seal comes out? what about the bush /housing ...do that too?? need any special tools??

  9. Im loving my 84 1.3 polo, its great on the narrow backroads near me.. but I don't feel like I've got the best out of it handling wise. I've got some 14/6j wheels on which started with 195/45 toyo proxies, and now some other 185/55s which ride much better. Also full poly bushings. Sofar i've tried 60/40 H&R cup suspension all round, i found it too harsh and basically track oriented which wasnt working. Next up new stock shocks with kilen 40mm springs, not much better... it wasn't so low and softer but the dampening and lack of travel just didn't feel great. I'm now back to completely stock with a coil cut out the fronts. I've played with the tire pressures loads, currently at around 28. As it is now feels the closest in terms of 'actually go around a countryside corner spiritedly' simply because this soft suspension absorbs some bumps, but not well enough! When going round a corner the current problem is the front wheels really lean over and start to skip and chatter sideways. Theres obviously loads of body roll, and also it just handles the very very small bumps like crap, the things that make your boot thump... that kind of bump. Large bumps are great, its a very comfortable car but it rumbles along the road. I know its a light car but there must be some modern tricks to really help this things ride? The goal being a smooth ride with reduced body roll and better front end grip. I'm trying to think of the best option for it... PPP Stage 2 subframe with the arb blocks does sound like a good idea, definitley on the list to help the front end. I can see H&R 35mm springs and a few other brands for sale too but all similar, a different pair of lowering springs again on stock shocks, is that the answer? Air ride??? Better shocks? like what? Can you guys give me your best advice on what road setups you've had and the best things to go for. Air ride with the subframe does sound like it could be dreamy but its a pricey decision. Cheers!

    Wanted Mk2 Breadvan Drivers Wing

    Time Left: 1 month and 20 hours

    • WANTED
    • USED

    In need of a Mk2 Polo breadvan drivers side wing with indicator hole. Colour does not matter as long as the wing is straight. Obviously would be a bonus if the wing was already tornado red but I can paint it if not. Depending on condition of the wing it may only be temporary so the car can still be used whilst my wing is painted so all conditions of wings considered. Looking for one close to Sp11 Andover but don’t mind travelling a little bit.

  11. The cambelt on my 1.0l mk2 saloon has just recently snapped and the mechanic wanted to know if the engine was an interference engine or a non interference engine, so it'd be much appreciated if anyone could let me know. Cheers Chris
  12. I am in the process of rebuilding a 1.3 engine for my mk2 polo, and am about to fit the camshaft and time it up. However I am unsure which of the two key ways on the cam the pulley is supposed to lock into to allow the timing marks to be correct. Can anyone shed some light on this for me? Thanks, Jordan

    Genuine VW caddy pickup 1.9D Manual gearbox MOT until January 2020 Mileage is 105,575 miles but will rise slightly as I'm using this as a daily driver. V5 with a few MOT's present. All history available online. 2 x Keys. This is a very reliable truck (bought from Essex and did not skip a beat down the motorway or back road) The only thing that didn't survive was the after market cassette player so currently has no ICE. Handles like a little go cart!! it is great fun to drive. Doesn't smoke, starts first time every time (once the coil has warmed up) New Tonneau cover fitted. Truck is lowered on springs (great for fast cornering) 15" alloys fitted (not very DUB) I did put my Polo GTI alloys on (BBS) but they will be going back onto the polo. The Caddy is 20 years old, and is showing its age in the usual places. Slight surface rust on the arches and above the windscreen. Also a couple of random patches around the body work and doors. This is all superficial. Nice straight bed, but again has superficial rust in places that do not affect the car, but look tatty and could do with a tidy. My plan was to remove the load liner and repair/ repaint the truck. The truck has recently had the rear top mounts fully welded and plastidipped for a good seal. Looks scruffy! but could easily be sorted. Track rod end (Wishbones) replaced on the 15th April (This cost me £260) Tow bar removed with professionally blanked electronics (Cost me £60). The tow bar is included in the sale however. Only selling as I bought this on a whim while my wife was at work as a run about/show car for me and a second car for her. However she really doesn't like it. So its got to go unfortunately. I have wanted one since I was about 15, so I am glad I can say I owned one. This will make a great running project for someone. But unfortunately it wont be me. Ready to drive away with that long MOT. Any questions please ask. Genuine interest only, I will get back to you asap. I am a working dad to 2 (almost 3!!) kids so time is precious. SWAPS SERIOUSLY CONSIDERED Thanks G 07557 509 785

  15. I have a 1977 Derby 1.3 that drives just fine but needs some rust and technical repair. Body parts seem to be very rare if not impossible to find. Have most of it sorted out, but more parts and more power would be nice. Having owned a G40 before, I miss that engine... Now... I have been offered a cirka 1993 Polo G40 with a turbo, aftermarket subframe, coilovers +++ for a sensible amount of money. How much of the 86c parts will fit my MK1 Derby? Will the subframe + motor, suspension and brakes be bolt on? How about the doors..? Is there a cross reference list available somewhere? I have tried searching - a lot.... Excited that I found this forum. Thanks in advance!
  16. Morning guys, I know the obvious causes of wheel wobble but I cannot seem to cure it on my 84 bready. I have 14x6 alloys on with brand new tyres. They have all been balanced, tracking is correct, and all have spigots. I originally thought i cured the problem by changing the front discs which had an obvious sticking spot, but it returned again shortly. I have now changed the pads AND discs a second time for better quality ones and nothings changed. It has full poly bushings all round, the track rods seem fine. I did find that the single small disc bolt did come loose but i have thread locked that in, and doesnt it get held tight by the wheel bolts anyway?? The only thing i havn't changed is front wheel bearings but i can't notice any play in there. The wobble is between 55-65, felt through the steering wheel. It comes on noticeably when letting off the throttle too, but not when braking. The only thing I know of that it could still be is the bearings, or a wheel is buckled? However i thought they would pick that up when balancing, and im pretty sure i have tried swapping the front wheels to back but cant remember. Any ideas would be much appreciated. Cheers!
  17. I've fitted a 32tlm Weber carb from a 957cc Ford fiesta to my 1043cc early mech head polo and it seems to be running lean no matter how much I adjust the mixture screw so was wondering if anyone has any advice or could reccomend a rolling road that stocks jets ect to suit Weber 32tlm in the north east preferably Tyne and wear aera as I dont really want to make any long journeys while the mixture isn't right although the car does seem to be starting and driving fine, or as good as the old solex on perished rubber flange did if not slightly better Thanks Dan.
  18. Okay so my car cut out again this morning, started fine, idled fine half choke and drove off fine, wouldn't rev high whilst on choke, wouldn't idle whilst off choke, then 100 yards down the road cut out and wouldn't start, just kept turning over and turning over for about 5 minutes then eventually started to pick up and started again. I must be getting air in from somewhere on the carb as I've tried richening up the mixture to no avail, gunsons colourtune shows no change in colour no matter hkdow far you adjust the mixture screw and gas tester shows .6-1.1 co on idle, plugs are white This makes me think that its carburettor issue causing the cutting out and not starting unfortunately I didn't have a spark plug with me to check if I had spark when it cut out So I've been considering changing the solex out for a Weber but I'm not sure which is suitable I've seen people mention 32tla but is a 32tlm for a 950cc fiesta the equivalent?

    • FOR SALE
    • USED

    First up, here is a link to the build thread for far more pictures. For sale is a solid rolling shell with some parts still attached. These include: New brake lines and fuel lines. GT/G40 inline pump, Mk3/Mk2f fuel tank and lift pump. Mk2 Golf 16v Master Cylinder 256mm front disc conversion 219mm rear discs conversion New handbrake lines - No fitted. Later Polo handbrake tunnel section still to be welded in. Weitec 60/40 Springs with 10mm caps on the front on SPAX shocks GT/G40 rear axle with ARB and polybushed GT/G40 steering rack with new arms New TCA New wheel bearings 5 speed ARB and shifter New Genuine VW front panel Also seats, couple of sets of door cards, dash, carpet etc. Front lights, grill, bumpers are here. Only negative is the battery tray will need to be repaired. The car is perfect for any GT/G40, AFH/AVY conversion. I have a lot of pieces for the AFH/AVY conversions but that can be dealt with when viewing the shell but these parts are in another garage so you need to do a couple of trips. You would be best bringing your own 14" wheels are mine are in another garage. The main reason for selling this is I have run out of room so once the shell has gone I can start emptying another and selling my other Polo parts that have stacked up over the last 10+ years. If you spot parts in the thread like the PPS subframe that is not for sale right now so no PM's regarding that.

    Jordan's MK2F breadvan

    Hi all been wanting to do one of these for a while but only just got the chance i bought my mk2f breadvan from stockport around september 2017 & it's been an on going daily project ever since. i painted it blue with graffiti paint lowered it on an ebay lowering kit & started doing shows in 2018. after blowing the first 1l engine up i did a quick engine change to another 1l for under £100 just to keep the car on the road. comes to november 2018 time & i wanted to start a winter build. started with painting the car, the car is now melon yellow - done with montana graffiti cans. yes i painted over the windows because i liked the look of a panel van & couldn't be bothered trying to track down some actual panels. bought a GT conversion with the 5 speed short ratio box, stainless manifold and a few extra bits. i liked the idea of having brand new parts even if the old ones were fine.. driveshafts, front coilovers, top mounts, bottom arms, track rod arms/ends, ARB Blocks etc. this build isn't the best thing ever but certainly is a eye catcher & i love the thing aha. this car is built to what i like... not what other people think. if i listened to everyone else it'd be sat here with a 40/60 lowering kit on bbs hahaa STRIP - DROP - RATTLE - ROLL (a motto i like to use from a club called DUBRATZ) if anyone has any questions feel free to ask. photos may not be in order the car currently isnt finished & i'm waiting for a few parts to arrive, i've just bought a new bonnet & wings as ones on the car had dents. follow me on insta: _jordoan_
  21. Just a quick question.. about to buy an exhaust that's come off a MK2 breadvan, would it fit on my 2f coupe? Or would I have to make adjustments?
  22. So far I've not had my oil light working, doesn't illuminate when ignition is on and doesn't illuminate when wire is earthed. Initially I thought it must be a break on the pcb on the clocks but I've had them apart tonight to fix a sticky speedo and it looks like I'm missing something? I've attached pictures showing where there appears to be a missing connector on the back of the speedo or are they not supposed to be plugged into anything?
  23. Hi guys. Hope you're all well. I have a full bike carb conversion kit that i had fitted to an early 80's breadvan. Will it fit on a later model? Specifically a 94? Facelift model? There is an outlet on the manifold inlet for brake servo but i filled that in as mine didn't use that. Asking as i have no use for the kit and someone wants to buy it if it will fit. Thanks for stopping by and any guidance you can leave.

    Polo breadvan build thread

    Hi there thought I start a build thread from a year ago from when I bought the car. I was 16 what I bought it as a car to learn how to do things on as I had use of a ramp at a local garage as I was a Saturday boy there. I bought it for 200£ with a months on it! I then got a mate at work to list everything that would need doing and there was a fair bit but I took it on. I needed to do starter motor as it was broken and wired up dodgy and a track rod end and new suspension all round which I went for a 60/40 ta technix lowering kit after that a mate done welding to inner and outer both sills which a wasn’t too expensive and was much appreciated as then after a few bulbs and a couple of tyres it passed the mot This picture was taken a few weeks after it passed at dubs at the park and I found pictures of some of the rust and me spraying it after my mate had done the welding
  25. I've recently bought a 1982 polo breadvan with 1043cc engine and manual choke carb and it idles fine, starts fine and runs okay apart from sputtering every now and then. It appears that it's fine when throttle is wide open but when pulling away or changing down gears and pulling away it struggles causing the car to kangaroo before picking up again. I'm having to compensate with high revs when pulling away to avoid it stalling and those skinny little tyres struggle enough for traction and wheelspinning away from every junction isn't as fun as it sounds. Just wondering if anyone has had similar issues or any idea what to look for? I'm assuming its carb related so I'm assuming that will need to come off and have a good clean. Any help or advice will be much appreciated Thanks Dan.
