  1. So I've had my mk2f (Dora) back on the road for about a week now. Passed her MoT last week, insured it (still £100 a month thanks to my 3 non-fault crashes, ok then), and got my job back delivering pizzas. Coming back to the store after a delivery last night, and I notice a police van behind me. No blues on so I don't think much of it, but then he follows me into the store car park. He asks about the car (if it's mine etc.), and then says it's not taxed. Ah bugger. I forgot to take the SORN off. So then my manager pops out and starts having a go at the coppers, who say it's not insured for business use either - but Dominos provides business cover for drivers, so they ask for proof of that. Manager goes to get it while I'm trying to figure out how to tax a car on my phone. Worth noting that police round here are notorious for impounding untaxed cars (another Dominos driver just had his taken a couple weeks before I joined). Manager shows the coppers our insurance certificate, but then they just say "We'll follow up on the tax thing later", turn their blues on, and bolt it out of the car park. Turns out there's this lad who was driving a definitely not-road-legal bike around town. Some people say he was already being chased by police, but all we know for sure is that he rode straight through a red light at one of the busiest junctions and hit another car - and he died at the scene. This happened at the exact same time, and the police left to deal with dead guy - giving me ample time to tax my car and get back on the road with no more problems. So last night some random idiot on a bike literally died to save my Polo, and I appreciate it 👍

    Dora v2

    Dora is back, and Vio's styling choices have not improved. Quick summary of the past couple years: - My purple and gold Nissan was hit while parked up overnight, the damage was similar to Dora's but I'd had enough fun with that one and decided to scrap it and upgrade. - Bought a Mercedes c200, learned it had a blown head gasket, spent £1k fixing it, lasted a year or so but then the engine died again (no compression in 3rd cylinder) so I sold that on as spares. - Bought a mk4 Golf with a blown head gasket (what is it with me and buying cars with blown head gaskets), engine seized up after like a month and sold it for £50. - Figured it was about time I get that old Polo of mine back on the road. I figured the bodywork was in reasonable enough condition that I could throw it in for an MoT, but it wouldn't start. Drained the fuel tank and tried some fuel cleaner, changed the rotor arm, dizzy cap, ignition coil, spark plugs, but it still wouldn't spark. So I handed it over to the garage who ended up replacing the whole distributor, and did a little bit of welding on the offside sill - which is the bulk of the remaining rust taken care of. Then they put it in for MoT, and it passed with no advisories. Nice! First thing to do (after hitting up maccies) was a little tidying - I got rid of the old seat covers and tacky ebay floor lights+gear knob, and tried scrubbing out all the dirt and dust from the seats with a vaccuum which partially worked, and I'll think about steam cleaning them another day. Also reinstalled my old head unit, but rather than hook back up my 6x9s I decided to treat myself and finally make use of those door pockets with speaker holes I bought 3 years ago but never got speakers for, for whatever reason. They do have blue lights, but I haven't wired those in as yet, as I'll run a new loom around the car to replace all of the old lights I had with some new stuff, and I'll connect them up to that in the near future. They do sound good, though I was planning to use my 1050w sub with them... but I can't find the damn thing. I assume I forgot to take it out of one of the various cars I've had before getting rid of it. Ah well, at least I know where my next paycheck is going. Ice Blue is Dora's new colour. So I bought some LEDs - interior light Clocks And I wired up a t10 to replace that crappy little yellow bulb for the heater controls (as well as replacing the cigarette lighter with a blue one). I'll probably add a second one later as well, but it looks pretty good as it is. Finally the last thing to do was try and clean off 3 years of crap from the outside. Gave her a fairly unceremonial wash, and tried to polish some of the obvious stuff out. I got as far as the bonnet and front quarter panel before running out of elbow grease. The crap on the back end doesn't seem to want to polish anyway, probably due to my previous rattle canning efforts, and some of the paint is peeling off anyway - so one of two things is on my to-do list: a respray (which I can't afford for sure)... or a wrap. This is quite fun 😊

    For sale is my Stainless steel exhaust that was custom made for my mk2 breadvan. Cat back system which consists of flexi pipe, centre silencer, and back box. Also 3 poly exhaust mounts and one rubber are included. The system was made by a company called custom chrome in Nuneaton and was designed to sit as high up as possible due to it being on a lowered car. The system is relatively quite (a bit louder than the standard system) during everyday driving but does give a sense of drama when you put your foot down. A really nice sound. Flexi pipe connection size: Internal 45mm external 49mm There is damage to the flexi pipe from scraping on speed humps and a small hole has developed as seen in the pics. The centre box also has some scrapes and dents. Also one of the clamps needs replacing.

    For sale are my recovered door cards in a fabric called black premium wool serge. They have homemade speaker holes that angle up and in towards the passenger and driver greatly improving sound quality. Fitted with Infinity Reference 6500cs speakers in full working order. I do have one grill, but unfortunately lost the other. To fit the front door cards they do require some fettling as they are too wide to fit into the plastic clips on the bottom of the door. I personally just put 2 screw through and into the metal of the door. Any questions please ask. Thanks Andy

    Hi, for sale is my 1994 VW Polo Mk2f. It has done 65k genuine miles (have some old Mot's and service receipts that can help verify this). I have 2 keys, one genuine, and the original VW handbook with the booklets inside. The car has been well maintained and is in extremely good condition for a 24 year old car! It has genuine BBS RA's off of a G40 that were professionally acid dipped and refurbished. This has been such a fun car to own ane drive. As my first car I couldn't have wished for anything more fun, reliable and unique to drive. I constantly got remarks about how nice the car was and how unique also. These are getting rare now and finding one with low mileage and clean bodywork is almost impossible! The car has already had the dreaded fuel tank recently so should be fine for at least a few years to come. The car had a full service including water pump and head gasket, coolant, brake fluid, cambelt, filters and oil in April 2017 along with brakes and suspension and the engine work. It also had a new clutch and clutch cable. It's had replacement wheel bearings, track rod ends and CV joints also. The car has had the following modifications: Full engine conversion from a standard 45hp 1.0l engine to a 1.3l MPI engine out of a Polo Mk2f GT. Standard these engines push out 75hp. I believe the engine is on sub 100k but I have no proof. I then bought a ported and polished cylinder head, believed to be on 60k miles (again no proof). I had the ported head sent off and had the head skimmed, pressure tested, valve guides ground down and valves reseated at Modus engineering in Tunbridge Wells. I then built up the engine with a fast road camshaft from Newman cams. The engine now has uprated Magnecor red HT leads, a Powerflow performance panel filter and a PoloPerformanceParts stage 2 ECU chip (7200rpm limiter increase). The car is believed to be pushing out at least 100hp which in a sub 800kg car is enough to have some fun! I do still have the standard ECU chip if you wish to go back to standard. Since the engine work the car has covered around 10k miles. To support the engine enhancements, I bought all new OE equivalent shock absorbers and coil springs all round. I also polybushed the front suspension components, and replaced the rubber anti-roll bar bushes with nylon blocks. This makes the car feel firm to drive and handles amazingly. The car has also had decent brakes all round. In the interior I have changed the door cards to incredibly rare ones with speaker pods built in. I have then fitted JBL 6.5" speakers with tweeters higher up the door card. This has been wired in properly with all the wires behind the dash and only a small piece is visible between the door and the dash. The seats are the dark grey ones with the rainbow coloured Volkswagen writing on them which I massively prefer to the Fox seats. I have changed the stereo to a Sony bluetooth music and possibly phone also. I have ran subwoofer wires to the back of the car which work fine, however the sub and amp are not included in the sale. The boot has a carpeted wooden false floor for supporting the subwoofer as the standard boot floor is very weak and couldn't really support anything. There is still the spare wheel underneath this. I have changed the clocks in the dash to the better GT clocks so a rev counter is there. I have also fitted a Momo leather gear stick and matching steering wheel with a genuine Momo boss. I also bought carpet floor mats as it didn't have any and I prefer them to the genuine rubber ones. I have also wired in a cigarette lighter so I could charge my phone or use a satnav while driving. On the exterior I have made a few subtle changes. I sprayed the VW grill badge and boot badges black, replaced the orange rear lights for genuine factory smoked lights, clear front and side indicators with chrome bulbs and now have body coloured door handle inserts. I have spent a lot of time, effort and money on this car and will be sad to see it go. Would make a perfect first car as it did for me, with cheap insurance even with no black box. The engine modification is not declared with the DVLA, however I do have the engine number saved so if you wish to officially register the change in engine capacity, you are able to. Sadly, there are a few minor issues and I will try to be as honest as possible (I am quite particular so some of these might not even affect you at all): - There is a small oil leak from the head. I believe it's where I put the head gasket on, some dirt might have got trapped and allows small amounts of oil to sweat out the engine. I have been topping the oil up every now and then. - There are some scrapes down the passenger side. I have tried to picture the damage to the passenger side as it's the worst area. Some small scrapes mainly on the door and rear arch. Also the drivers door has has a dent pulled out at some point. - There is some sort of sticker residue on the b pillers that I can't get off easily. (not put that much effort in. Just used autoglym tar and glue, not much happened so I left it alone.) - Where I fitted the clocks, the wiring loom on the back of them is wrong, so occasionally the coolant light flashes, when the coolant level and temperature are perfectly normal. Usually turning the car off and on again fixes this. - The sunroof leaked water and had been sealed up when I bought the car. I changed the seal and it still leaked water so I put enough sealant to stop water dripping on me while driving. If this bothers you, a new sunroof or new sealant applied neatly would work. If someone takes as good care as I and the previous owners have, it will have many years of life left and is starting to become an appreciating retro cool car. Currently it is running a PPP stainless 4 branch manifold and full PPP stainless decat exhaust system. If this is going with the car, an additional cost of £250 will need to be added on the the asking price of £1250. To arrange a viewing/test drive please TEXT 07383417526 (will NOT answer calls as I work unsociable hours and may be asleep or working when you call). Car will be available to drive away from the 10th August.

    Rather than attempt to rattle can my new bootlid, I wanted to check and see if anyone has one first. For a mk2f coupe, needs to be Alpine White, and preferrably within 50 miles of WN7. Also if you've got a back bumper, the plastic cover(s) for the inside of the boot, and a good condition parcel shelf I'd be interested in them as well. Anyone?


  12. VW 1994 Polo MK2F AAU For the first time, I attempted to change the oil. Everything was going so well, but now the sump plug won't grip the pan! Backstory: A month ago, I wanted to do an oil change however the sump plug wouldn't budge, probably because I couldn't get enough space under the car. I decided to ask the garage to loosen it when I got the MOT done. They loosened it for me and it was great - driven it a few times nothing leaked everything was fine, oil level still the same. TODAY: All prepped up I finally drained the oil. However, when it came to fitting the new sump plug, it wouldn't grip. At first, I thought I must have bought the a size too small. I tried putting the old one back in, and it wouldn't grip either! It's like its too small, rattling side-to-side in the hole. I'm pretty annoyed to the say the least, as I've only renewed the tax/mot/insurance last week The sump plug threads looks in good condition. Is it possible I could have stripped the thread in the sump pan? Surely this wouldn't leave a gap big enough to rattle the plug inside the hole? Maybe I'm not doing something properly? (This is my first oil change) Is there a fix I can apply without replacing the sump pan? If I have to replace the sump pan, is it a massive job? Some of the screws securing the pan look pretty rusted. Any help would be gratefully appreciated! Thanks

    Head unit install

    Has anyone got a good thread for installing a head unit on a mk2f as I can't seem to get my pioneer one to get any power iv bridged a wire from the ignition live (black and yellow wire) to the unit power and nothing happened.
  14. Hello, For starters - it's a LHD 1.05 mk2f with 5 speed gearbox and 18mm arb. So yesterday I fitted poly bushings on my MK2F anti rollbar (was a major pita, as I was doing it on a solid gravel surface and in a hurry) and noticed that the roll bar is rubbing all the way up against the gearbox's end pan and the downpipe. The oem bushings were really worn, as the washers would be constantly clunking against the tracking arm. The car is lowered (which is supposed to be) 80mm at the front, but there's still long ways till my arches and has never rubbed even going over a speed bump at a decent speed, so not really sure about the exact lowered value. I have been waiting on the better time for the arb blocks, but it is yet to come. Can you install the roll bar the 'wrong way' as it didnt come to mind to check and as I didnt have the problem before? I also had removed the roll bar before and installing it was not anywhere near as big of a problem the other time. Cheers on the first post!

    Hello again.

    It took me 3 years, but I did it. Hello again 😊
  18. Just replaced the cambelt - first thing I noticed was maybe 1cm of belt flapping at idle along the long length between cam & crank - is this a problem? Car runs fine, belt isn't whirring. Tightened to 90 degree twist on short length, just over 90 flapping length. I used the same brand of belt last change and found any tighter would cause belt to whirr loudly.

    Hi all from Cornwall

    Hello all just joined a few days ago really looking for a roof rack for my 1992 polo mk2f, something like the photo if any has any ideas that would be great:) just advice on where to go etc. Sorry if this is posted in the wrong place aha
  20. So i have just swapped over the servo on my 91 GT, the servo was being dodgy and removing the old one revealed some major rust had taken hold on it. Anyway i've fitted a replacement servo, taken off a 2f, i haven't adjusted anything on this new servo. My car is running a rear disc setup, with VW2 fronts and a 22mm master cylinder, this has all been fitted for a couple of years and been working perfectly. With the new servo fitted, the brake pedal sits lower than the clutch pedal (they used to sit level), and the point at which the pedal goes solid is also lower. These i can live with, but the pedals new position is too low to switch off the brake lights, so they stay permanently on. I have taken apart the old servo, and the only adjustment i can see is on the master cylinder side, which would change the bite point, but not where the pedal sits at rest. Being honest i'm stumped, its like its not seated correctly on the bulkhead, but the three mounting bolts are tight, look even and none of it looks crooked. I have released the master from the servo to check its not that, and the pedal indeed is still incorrect with no master. I can only think i'll have to strip it off again and compare with the old servo/check its seating. But before i do, anyone have any bright ideas? Thanks guys
  21. Hello polo people, I recently rebuilt the head on my mk2f and replaced alot of parts but ever since iv owned the car it would rev up and then down and return to normal but after all the work it seems to be getting worse and now it does it more often, some times almost stalls and the oil light flashes then returns to normal. Only seems to do it when it starts to get hot. The only things I haven't replaced are the lamba sensor, coil pack, HT leads and the gaskets on SPI unit. Any help with this would be great, I want it running spot on for the Polo social.

    AFH loom

    So hopefully in the near-ish future I want to convert my coupe 1.3 to afh 1.4 16v and i just want to fuel it with injection but I'm not sure about the wiring iv heard of a complicated way of splicing the looms with both the fuse boxs or something along those lines and iv also heard that you can make a loom using both engine looms with minimal wires just wondering if anyone can shed some light on which is the best way to do it and I really don't want to run it on bike carbs.
