  1. 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?

  3. 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?

    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

    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.

    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!
  7. 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?
  8. 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?
  9. 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.

    • FOR SALE
    • USED

    For sale is my 1993 mk2f, the interior is completely genuine apart from an mp3 head unit, it is in great condition. It has 13 inch starmag alloys, they are not perfect but they are not in need of a refurb. The engine is a 1.3GT on twin gsx600 bike carbs, the gearbox is from the GT as well. The body work is in fair condition, no major rust and I've recently welded the inner and outer sills and the rear wheel arch. I've got a few spares to go with it. Just been through an MOT with no advisories, fully polybushed front end with powerflex bushes. Any questions feel free to ask. Open to offers.

    My mk2f polo conversion

    So, recently purchased a 1991 mk2f polo with a 6n2 engine and gearbox conversion. Stripped the whole shell out today, no seats inside but a lot of wiring hanging around. Looking for ideas to use for the rear as I’m leaving the back seats out so wanting to board it and carpet the rear but need some great ideas to go with! Thanks guys

    *My mk2f/mk3 work in progress* 😀

    So just a bit of a progress report on my Grandads old Polo (which he had from new but I tracked down after it was sold 8 years ago) As you can see she is looking a bit like her old self now, so far I have repaired the battery tray, replaced battery, brake pads, wipers, passenger wing, steering column/ignition,, aerial, lock set, fit a period Sony face off radio and thoroughly cleaned the interior too. Next on the to do list is to sort out the bits of scabby bodywork and replace the fuel tank and tyres 👍🏻 As she has been off the road a few years I’m hoping that I can’t get her MOTd early next year and hopefully take her to a Polo meet or two 🤗 I intend to keep her standard as the day my grandad bought her back in 1994 👍🏻 Welcome me any thoughts/comments/advice Cheers 👌🏻
  20. hello, I need to change all rubber fuel hoses by removing the badly rusted compression fitting that connects the plastic (nylon) lines to the rubber hoses and using an oetiker-type clamp to connect the fuel line to the rubber hose (see red circle in photo as example of compression fitting used to connect plastic line to fuel hose), however i wonder how to avoid kinking or crushing the plastic line when fitting the clamp: does someone know if there is a brass insert INSIDE the plastic line like the one in the second photo that I can reuse? does anyone have suggestions for the job? did not find anything using the search. The reason I cannot check is that cannot do the job at home and I plan to do this job at a friend's place on a weekend and i would like not to leave the car at my friend's place for a week... he probably wouldn't like it too, i imagine 🙂 the car is a 1993 mk2f 1.0L breadvan thanks in advance!

    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 😊

    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?
