  1. So i've been losing coolant for the past couple of weeks - have to refill every week or so. Two years ago I've replaced the entire thermostat housing which was rotten and the plastic was breaking off at the ports. However I can't find a leak now, and also can't correlate the leak with heater usage. So naturally I'm fearing an internal leak. I've taken the plugs our (unrelated) and wandered if the No. 2 plug (second from the right) is any indication of antifreeze in the engine block. What do you think?
  2. Hello all! I am trying to think what my options are regarding the above issue. I have started to take out the instrument cluster just to see if I can revive the (long black right) odometer button so I can reset the inspection message on the right LCD (my model is the post-1997 design). I managed to take out all the steering wheel trim but it seems that I would have to take out the airbag and steering wheel. My question is if it's even worth it? what happens when I disassemble the cluster itself? Do I need to take out anything else other than the steering wheel t
  3. 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.

    Polos in scrapyard

    Was sent this pic not sure when taken, 6N or 6N2 in there so not all that long ago, anyone know the story behind it? Scrappage?
  5. Just wondering if anyone would know what size of tyres these had? A mate bought a set for an Ibiza sport but they'd no tyres on them.

    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

    I need roofbars

    Hello all, I’ve been struggling to find some roofbars for my 2000 mk3 polo estate... I see numerous people have them fitted and am looking for some assistance
  8. Hello and thanks to anyone who reads this and replies! OK so I have a mk3 polo saloon 6kv2, lowered on JOM coilovers. Currently got the car in the garage for a few things, one being the front top mounts and bearings. The mechanic is telling me he's tried to fit stock size top mounts but they would be dangerous in combination with the lowered springs so I need to find the top mounts that go with the coilovers or that are suited for a lowered car. I hope this is making sense to someone because I'm still learning! So I've found some JOM (JOM 740503) top mounts to fit my car and they do say that t

    Hello, my name is Salvador, I'm from Spain, Barcelona. and this is my vw polo coupe model CL from 1993, it has a 1.05L AAU engine, and right now it has 88k in the odometer. The truth is that I am very happy. I have a question if someone can answer me, my car is carburetion or fuel injection.

    Bootlid needed!

    Hi guys, Friend of mine has been reversed into and smashed the bootlid of her mk4 polo, (glass smashed also) Just wondering what you guys can offer in the way of advice? Looking ideally for a bootlid to replace the dented one, or someone who has 6n parts and is willing to courier. There is a replacement in Wigan, however they are reluctant to courier. Any advice would be greatly appreciated :) Cheers Lyle

    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.
  12. 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.

    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

    MK3-C Pillar leak

    Hi all, I am stumped regarding a leak in my mk3 bready, am getting puddles in the boot, but only on the drivers side near the rear light cluster. I have put silicone in every seal i can see in the area fucked about in the boot whilst someone poors water on the boot however the problem still persist. It only seems to happen when i am parked uphill water seems to come out of the area circle in the photos. I am thinking it is the rear sun roof drain, but not 100, any suggests what else it could be and any solutions if it is the drain that doesnt involved removing head liner. any helped

    *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
  16. Hi to all fellow VW enthusiasts! So I just recently purchased my 2F “Match” edition which was the last of the run out models so came with the sport radar alloys and Sony flip stereo as standard (so a slightly special model 🤣) What IS so special about this particular car though is that it used to belong to my grandad from brand new and I remember the day that he got it back in 94. Growing up I spent many an hour in the back of his Polo on trips out with my brother. Long story short but the car was sold 8 years ago (my grandad sadly passed away) and that was that...... Fast forwar
  17. Hi Got a bit of a problem with the car. While driving at 100kph and coming to slow down and down shifting to 4th gear and trying to rev match, when pressing the accerlator slightly, the car would not rev up at all unless you press harder which case over revs. Also when accelerating from stand still, the car hesitates very badly and feels like it doesnt want to rev. Once you get past 2000 rpm it goes ok but below that it just feels like it doesnt want to rev at all. I've only noticed this today when i drove it. Weather was very bad, rain and hailing like crazy . not sure if maybe go
  18. Hi guys i know iv been quiet on here for a very long time sins i sold my last polo which i dropped the GT engine in but now im back with a question for the guru's here as i have found a lot of conflicting information scattered about the internet regarding this. First of all let me start out by saying im looking at doing about 3 different engine conversions at the moment and dont want to waste my time / effort on the polo if its not going to work anyway as i have a e36 BMW to take a 318i 8v engine out of and put a 318is 16v stroked engine in for definite. Along with that
  19. Where to start??? (i'll make it as short as possible) Noise when idling which goes away once clutch is depressed.. After much research possibly two culprits; 1. release bearing. 2. input shaft bearing. Took gearbox out to GEARBOX SPECIALIST who gave it a external examine (spinning & listening to the moving parts) Advised by said specialist to change clutch as it could be just that and it may be more cost effective as, if he opens it up and finds nothing it'll cost, popped new clutch it, got gearbox on (replaced gear oil) started car, noise still there but a
  20. Hi all I have a question i would like to ask. My polo is a 94 1.6L I4 and i'm having an issue where sometimes when i start the car up it would start up fine but cut out after about 1 second as if it stalls. Sometimes it would take several attempts before it would start fine again. It hasn't happened in 2 months prior to this week. Last time it happened was after a night of heavy rain. I'm not sure if that has something to do with it? I'm starting to think it could be the immobilizer? If that was the case, would buying a second hand one and putting it in fix the problem? or what els
  21. So I was looking at the FAQ into what calipers carriers and disks to buy and throw on my mk3 polo but all I could find was like 10 years out of date. So I will pose this question to you lot can anyone just give me a definite parts list for what to buy that will work?? Ideally id like to fit bigger disks in as I have 15" inch wheels so a little bit more room, but if not just improved width for a vented rotor. Thanks in advance thing
  22. Hi there I've just bought a 2000 Mk3 Polo with a 1.4 16v engine and an auto box. I got it cheap as there was a shifting problem with the gearbox. It was low on atf, took the oil pan off, cleaned, new strainer and correct oil sorted that problem out. While I was under the car I noticed a drain plug at the bottom of the diff housing. Does the diff share the atf with the auto box or does it have its separate gear oil?
