  1. Hey everyone, this is my first post so if its in the wrong place I do apologise. I’ve converted my 1992 Polo Mk2F to an AFH running the standard injection and ECU. The way I did this was buying a donor car which was already converted. This car is a 1989 Mk2 Polo. The car runs and behaves normal on idle. However when I try to drive it, it bogs down at around 2500rpm in 1st and 2nd at partial throttle, if I floor it, it doesn’t happen. In every other gear it drives fine regardless of throttle position. I swapped everything over from the older Polo to try and rule
  2. The shifting on my mk2f has always been a bit rubbish - my first drive home in it I was pulling out of junctions in 3rd like a lunatic thinking I was in 1st and something was terribly wrong - turned out I needed to 'twist' the sifter counter-clockwise to get it to plonk into 1st. 1st to 2nd requires a lot more force than between other gears which is a bit of a pain jumping out on junctions and roundabouts. Got used to it and didn't think much of it but recently re-reading some other shifting queries I started to wonder if it doesn't need some new bushings etc. I guess the question

    MK2F custom exhaust manifold

    Hi, this is my first post on the forum and thought I’d share some pictures of the 4-1 manifold Ive built for my 2F breadvan 38mm primary’s into a 4-1 merge collector with a 2” exit it’s all made of 304 stainless steel and back purged TIG welded.
  4. Hey, after not owning a polo for 13 years I’ve decided to buy a project in the form of a mk2f coupe, i previously owned a black mk2f GT. So I’m looking forward to restoring this beauty! Few wiring issues to sort and to get rid of the rollered on paint Job!

    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 w
  6. I need a bit of help ever since i bought by 2f gt late last year the oil light has been on and the buzzer has come on while driving. Ive checked the oil pressure and done an oil change everything seemed fine, but the buzzer kept going i was told if i disconnected both oil pressure senders on the engine it would stop but hasn't can anyone give some advice.

    My “Jazzy”s build diary mk2f

    This is the start of my build diary, I recently bought my first car, a beautiful polo mk2f 1.3 “jazz”, 114k on clock, I believe it’s a NZ engine due to the flying saucer on my dizzy cap. ive already had to fit a new fuel tank to her took me a while, as getting the old neck past some one else’s shoddy attempt at weld the arches up got in the way so just snapped the neck off in the end. Here the new tank fitted👍.

    MK2F

    I’ve just bought a 1994 MK2F, and wanted to put some new wheels on it. It’s currently got the stock alloys on it. I wanted to get the teardrop wheels from the Mk2 golf GTI, but wondered if they would actually fit? Can anyone help?
  9. What I mean is: do original rims of a MK2f fit on a MK2? Are the mounting points the same?

    Mk3 van

    Not sure if this is the correct place to post, but spied this on another forum and thought it might have been of interest It's not mine so didn't want to post an ad in classifieds Looks tidy. https://www.volkszone.com/VZi/showthread.php?t=1589347
  11. Breaking a mk2f 1.3 genesis, it has a gt engine on bike carbs, with the gt gearbox.
  12. A couple of years ago I bought a project. Its a mk1f with a Mk2f GT engine conversion. I say conversion, but barely anything was installed (in the engine bay and to the inside of the car lol), just boxes of engine and interior parts, and a hacked loom. Anyway, I’ve mechanically completed the engine install, with cam and crank timing aligned with markers, and the rotor arm pointing at the cylinder 1 marker on the dizzy. Next thing was the wiring. It has numerous cuts and joins. I’ve used the mk2f Haynes manual and made all the connections. I can get the car to turn over but not start. I ge
  13. 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.
  14. Hi all hope you all getting ok in current conditions. On mk2f GT😁 I noticed the the rear back box rubber hangers have almost perished. Only been on a year . Quality wise is there anything better on the market? Many thanks. 😁
  15. Hey guys long time without a polo or a visit to this forum. I've just bought a scruffy little 2f coupe. One of the immediate issues is a whole heep of slack in the steering rack. I'm looking for a second hand one to tide me over and I'm wandering if there are any other cars that are cross compatible.
  16. Hello thanks for reading, so I have recently bought two GT camshafts to go in my coupe s. I thought I was better off buying the two from different people so I could choose the best to use. Camshaft one, Lobes look in great condition with minimal wear or marks. I can’t feel any surface marks, however the bearing faces have vertical scoring the worst of which is pictured. I can only just feel the worst one with my nail. camshaft two, err well the opposite 😖 smooth bearing surfaces no problems but the lobes have these dark patches on them. I can’t feel a

    Mk2f for a good cause

    Not an add as the vehicle isn't mine. Just wanted to make you aware that a mk2f is going up for sale in the upcoming bonhams auction. The money raised from the sale will be going to the charity starter motor who provide the vehicles for the heritage skills academy, of which I am a student. It will come with standard suspension and a full engine service. Here is the link if you want to check it out https://www.bonhams.com/auctions/26109/lot/54/?category=list&length=12&page=5

    MK2f Saloon Project

    Hello all, this is my first post. I bought a mk2f saloon last september, previously modified by the person i bought it from in the style of the US ski team (i dont know why... but it was fun) Anyway since buying it i have done a number of things, namely taking the skis off of the roof and replacing the ski pole gear stick (hahaha) for a normal one. Things i've also done: Changed petrol tank, fixed gear linkage, filled rust hole underneath battery (my foot got wet while driving in the rain), service (new plugs and filters all round), fitted rally fog lights My c
  19. Hi, I’ve just bought a polo mk2f 1.3 NZ and the engine seems to idle quite fast. I haven’t got a tach but I’m guessing it’s just over 1000rpm, i’d expect it to run fast when cold, but it never dies down, even when warm. Anyone know what this could be? Haynes is very vague on nz’s

    Mk2 boot/tailgate

    Hi In need of a boot red ideally
  21. Hi All I have a 1994 VW Polo Mk2 Facelift Genesis with 45400 miles on the clock available. The car has 2 owners from new and was last owned by my next-door neighbour’s dad who passed away a couple of years ago. The intention was to give the car a quick go over and back on the road, but I started doing this, and then that, then circumstances changed and now the car is up for breaking or someone who wants a job lot. I need the space back and willing to give it a couple of months but then Mr scrap man will have a treat. I will get some pictures up over the next week.

    085 OR 02T?

    well its been a while since i was last on here!! originally joined in 2009 with a coupe, now a mk1 astra, 3 coupes, a nova and an e30 later i'm back in a breadvan! surprise surprise the box is bust..... if anyone knows the type that would be lovely as im ordering 5th gear repair kit, would it be 085 or 02T for mine? its a 92, 1.3 86cf box.
  23. My 2f Polo has failed it's MOT as the main beam tell tale bulb has blown. Unlike the rest of the warning lights, which are LEDs, it's a tungsten bulb with a blue cap over it. Can anyone help me source a replacement bulb? Or give me directions on fitting an LED in it's place?
  24. Does anyone know where I can get an exhaust for my mk2f saloon? Theres seems to be plenty of mk2 coupe and breadvan exhausts around, but i cant seem to find any for a saloon. I am planning on putting a new stainless manifold on and would like the pipe to be 2" all the way, but i don't know if this would be really hard to find? Would it be something i would have to custom-fabricate? (and buy a welder)? Thanks
