  1. So I'm (thankfully) down to just the selector shaft seal leak on my '93 Polo now and want to have a crack at replacing it next week. I've got an OEM seal and 3l of oil - do i need a replacement bush as well? One of these guys? https://www.vwheritage.com/001301209-guide-bush-for-gearbox-selector-rod-vw-spare

    AFH mk2f injection

    Im wondering if anyone can give me some pointers on wiring up a AFH to run injection, I'll be removing the Immobiliser from the ECU and all the wiring, my questions are can I get the mk2f rev counter to work with it? Because I know it runs of the coil, how do I go about wiring in the fuel pumps, how do people get the oil pressure switch to work and what do you use iv been told to use both the AFH and the mk2f and get an adaptor, do I need to use the AFH fuse box aswel as the 2f one? Anyone can answer one of these questions would be great.

    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_

    Mk2f gt judder

    Got a judder coming from the front/ nearside front when pulling away. It feels like an engine mount but I've replaced the lower one with a golf rallye unit a while ago. Tia , Michael.
  5. Planning to change my wheels on my mk2f coupe, car is too low to get under the sill jacking points, are there any alternative points on the car I can safely jack from?

    Had a dream last night

    Had a dream that we moved into a new house and previous owner had left a mk2f saloon in the garage. No rust, big spec - headlight washers, front fogs, sunroof - the lot. Went to give it a service. Popped off the oil cap. Blown head gasket.
  7. 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?
  8. Hey all, After replacing the fuel filter on my '93 MK2f I noticed a fuelly smell stopping at lights recently. When I got back home i saw it was dripping petrol pretty heavily from the outlet end of the fuel filter. I popped a new, wider clamp on the junction but it looks like the old hose is splitting so there is now a delicate balance between enough clamping pressure to seal the leak without crushing the hose too much and propagating the crack further. I've got it to drip only occasionally but obviously this needs sorting asap. Looking at the parts list: https://volkswagen.7zap.com/en/rdw/polo+derby+vento-ind/po/1993-120/2/201-22001/#20A The hose in question is 20A - apparently a reducer pipe going from 8mm to 6mm. I can't for the life of me find one anywhere (admittedly haven't tried a dealership or TPS - both are kind of a pain to get to for me, the only TPS nearby is 'Trade Only'). However from the pictures of the part it looks a lot shorter than the pipe that is on my car at present - I suspect someone may have bodged their own thing in the past. So my question is - is there going to be any adverse difference to fuel flow if I make up my own reducer using a section of 6mm hose and 8mm hose joined by a 6-8mm hose joiner insert and some clamps? The pressure increase will be identical at the 6mm end but I guess flow could technically be worsened with the sudden change in diameter? The hose itself is quite hard to come by too it seems - however it looks identical to injector hosing (cotton reinforcement between a sandwich of rubber) rather than braided fuel hose. Will injector hosing do the job? Thanks for the help!

    Mk2f Breadvan project

    Hi guys, recently bought a mk2f breadvan and need some inspiration for wheels, suspension etc. I'll upload photos when I can.
  10. Hi all, Came out the other day to give the G a blast after a couple of days standing and it's completely dead. Dashboard lights/radio/headlights all come on but no turn over. Not even a solenoid click I can also hear an electrical motor sound toward the rear which i presume is the fuel pump. I don't think it's the battery as all the electrics work and i've tried jumping it with a battery pack. Anyone got a clue what might be up? My mechanic skills are a work in progress so it's all a learning curve!
  11. I've been given a MK3 golf with a 1.4 abd that I plan on putting into my mk2f that's currently got a 4 speed box so will need a 5 speed. Whats the best box too run?
  12. Which factory VW steering wheels fit a 93 MK2F (26mm spline)?
  13. I've acquired a rear tailgate spoiler for my MK2F, looking for any guidance on fitting. It has tapered nylon fittings which presumably requires associated female clips that are fixed to the bodywork? Any advice gratefully received.

    Polo Green smurf

    Greetings to all, my name is Oleg, I am from Russia. In our country, second-generation polos are not very popular due to the small number of such cars, and so I decided to look for communities outside my own country. And so about my baby: 1992 release, engine AAV, coupe, well, or a hatchback, 4-speed gearbox. I bought it in 2013, it has a lot that worked badly, there was a lot of putty on the body, but I was happy to move from car with carburetor on car with injector, I was most attracted by the work of the engine, it worked like a clock even at an air temperature of -30°C, and I was not scared by the puffed putty on the body. First of all, the technical part was brought to an acceptable condition and it became my daily car. Here is a photo of how it looked after the purchase: It looks pretty good on the back, but the front look was not as whole as I thought... As it turned out - this body was in an accident, there was a head-on collision, and the left spar was curved, and the hood with front fenders needed to be replaced. Some time later, I managed to find the front fenders and hood in excellent condition. I don’t have a photo with an old hood, but there is a photo with old fenders and a new hood: Then I replaced the front fenders, and also installed the missing part of the front panel: The grille was also replaced: For comparison, posted a photo as it was and as it became: At that time I was very pleased with my work, however - it was 2013. He lived with me in this config until 2015, then I had an accident, because of the lack of a bumper amplifier, all my work was destroyed. After that, I ordered new body parts: bumper, bumper amplifier, front panel and grille with headlights. I decided to complete the work before the new year (it was in December) Here I got to the front panel: Instead of a normal amp bumper was bolted unknown origin design. All of this has naturally been removed from the body: All new parts were installed in place without difficulty. I don't know how you call the front panel, but we call it TV: And everything is in order... I will continue the next days, see you soon!
  15. Hey there I’m looking to remove my mk2f rear view mirror but I can’t seem to get it of any help on how ?

    Mk2f AVY 1.6 16v

    Hello Polo people, Im looking at putting a 1.6 AVY (GTi) engine into my mk2f coupe running standard injection/management and have it looking OEM so alot of wiring to sort out but the main problem that iv got is getting around the fly-by wire, I know you can fit a AFH throttle body but that's not really away around it because the ECU will still think it's fly-by?? Any information would be great.

    1993 1.3 Genesis

    Hello Club Polo! This is my Mk2f 1.3 Genesis when I first bought her in September. "Geny" is my first car and is in a very clean state for 107k! Underside is clean, rear arches are good however she has had a new fuel tank (Presumed filler neck rot). Since owning her I have only made some slight changes. Clear indicators and repeaters, Klaxon horn hehe Sony head unit 6x9 shelf speakers (holes where already there) sub and amp, carpeted boot with floor removable to access spare wheel. I have purchased a set of 14x6 snowflakes which are being 'refurbished' by myself currently. New driveshafts, radiator, wheel bearings all corners, water pump and timing belt, clutch and auxiliary belt are due to be fitted. (Have parts-being fitted gradually) Will post updates with more recent images if anyone is interested! Lyle
  18. A couple of MOT's back I got a corrosion advisory for O/S beam mount near the fuel filler area. I Aquasteeled it up and it wasn't detected at the last MOT at a different garage (good sign, right?). The whole arch is rotten now; the skins are separating and the GT arch trim fell off somewhere never to be seen again. How bad does the beam mount have to get to fail an MOT and is it an expensive welding repair?
  19. Hi CP, Have just done a test fit with the above wheels and the fronts appear to be too wide, atleast in legal terms. The edge of the rim protudes about 3/4 inch out and I don’t want to chance bring pulled over, etc. Would fitting a tire tire and covering the tread be deemed ok? Was looking at 185/60 however I feel this will offer too much of a square shoulder and result in obvious poke. Are 175/50’s too narrow for modern tire regs?

    MK2F ABU swap

    Hello, So I'm swapping an ABU engine (1.6 from mk3 golf) in my polo and I came to the point where my starter from a 1.05 doesn't fit as the back of the block is flat on it, compared to the 1.6 which has rib-like bumps, for the crank I assume. I'm using the stock 1.05 clutch and gearbox for the time being and I need some certain points to which starter I should look for? Also any point outs for the throttle cable? As it seems to supposed to be swinging around from the front, instead from the back (the solid brackets are in different places) This might've been covered, but I'm in a bigtime rush, so as far as I've looked, cannot seem to find any CERTAIN info on it.
  21. I had a rattle when driving at speed in my MK2F Bready that I traced to behind the diver-side passanger trim card. Took it off and found a right mess! The pipe that I presume the fuel line runs through (whatever it is its a thick rubber pipe) has totally rotted away with the flange that i presume used to be attached to the rear wheel arch section now rattling around (thus the noise!). The line rus through the arch so it seems water had been entering it's steel pipe surround and eaten through iut with time, then started on the pipe flange and eventually made a nice hole directly from the wheel arch into the car interior. I had been wondering why that rear window was misting more than the others - there must have been water pissing in through that hole whenever I drove in the wet... Here's a video First things first - why aren't there plastic arch liners on both of my rear arches?! The front arches have them - should the MK2F have them on the rear? If not it seems insane - I have a bunch of hoses in that arch coming from the fuel pump that are in direct line of fire from the wheel. Not to mention a whole load of angles, knooks and crannies where water can spray into. I can't see how I can get to the area to do a proper repair job - especially as this line (which I presume is fuel but who knows) is running through the hole. Is it worth just cleaning it, treating it and then caking the whole lot in a mess of body filler and just hoping for the best?
  22. hello, I think the Haynes wiring diagram for a mk2f polo (1990-1994) has an error on the single point fuel injection schematic: the petrol pump relay (NUMBER 23, low on the left) is wired in a very awkward way: it appears that the fuel injector (NUMBER 28) is wired in series with the relay coil (relay pins 85 and 86) and the fuel pumps (NUMBER 30 and 31) via fuse F1 which is nonsense. also the +12V arriving at the relay contact 30 (battery positive) is switched to contact 87 which then goes to battery positive via the key switch??? i had a friend search in ElsaWin but apparently there is a wiring diagram only for polos from 1995+ (mk3), and I cannot find anything on the web either... do any of you have an alternative wiring diagram to show, please?
  23. Hi has anyone got a link for correct front wheel bearing on mk2f gt breadvan? Only asking as I have noticed different makes do vary in size. Many thanks . Have a Merry Christmas.

    Mk3 Polo from the Emerald Isle

    Hi Folks 🙋‍♂️ A few months ago with the encouragement from a few close friends of mine I took the leap and decided to buy a project car. After looking around for a while, nothing seemed to catch my eye. So the search continued, and one day I stumbled across a little MK3 polo for sale. The car was advertised as needing painted .... LOL So I went to view the car and this was the shape it was currently and actually the way I bought it the car surprisingly needs little welding but has had the interior ripped out as previous owner had planned on turning into a van but hey ho I'm sure you guys on here will help guide me to completion of this project. Mk2f polo 1.0 4 speed 51,000 There has been a lot of changes and planning this last few months which I shall update you all with soon.
