    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
  2. 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 they are suited for lowered cars, is this definitely what I need? Also are the powerflex -10mm the same kind of deal? I'm hoping somone can tell me exactly what I need so I can buy the right set first time round! The mechanic basically said I can't use standard top mounts and need ones to suit coilovers??? I really appreciate any replies as the car is sat in the garage until I turn up with the right parts! Thankyou fellow Polo owners.

    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.
  6. 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 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

    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 would be greatly appreciated ta

    Mk3 Polo from the Emerald Isle

    Hi Folks πŸ™‹β€β™‚οΈ 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.
  10. 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 πŸ‘πŸ» 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 πŸ€— I intend to keep her standard as the day my grandad bought her back in 1994 πŸ‘πŸ» Welcome me any thoughts/comments/advice Cheers πŸ‘ŒπŸ»
  11. Hi to all fellow VW enthusiasts! So I just recently purchased my 2F β€œMatch” 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 forward to the present day and after attending a few car shows I have been wanting an old VW in my life to play with (it was an itch I had to scratch) I never thought though that I would actually track down my grandads old Polo!! Even though it had been off the road a few years, a deal was struck (she had changed hands 3 more times and was just festering on a driveway) some fettling and a new battery got the old girl going and I have started to bring her back to her former self (so far, new steering column with ignition, new front wing, tyres, brakes and a service) and I intend to keep her standard as the day my grandad bought her πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ» Thanks for reading my story, welcome any thoughts/ideas/suggestions! πŸ‘ŒπŸ»
  12. 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 got in anywhere?? also noticed that the temperature gauge didnt really move at all from the cold position. The weather was very cold outside however. Related? any ideas
  13. 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 i may be helping a mate of mine convert his k10 micra 1.2 to a 1.6 from a almera. Which leaves me with 2 possible engine swaps which only 1 of can be done. Iv got a 1.6 AEE MPI engine which has some kind of performance cam sat on my garage floor at the moment which came from a 1996 mk3 golf which i stripped kept the engine as i know the AEE is known as a fairly tune able engine with someone pushing one to 240BHP anyway once i had a better look at it i realized it looked a lot like the AAV / 3F engines i had pulled out / put in my old polo. Then as luck would have it again a MK2F came up for sale locally and i managed to swap a BMW e36 vader full interior for it which worked out in the sellers favor anyway as he wanted Β£450 for the mk2f and he sold the vader interior for Β£750 which in my opinion is cheap still as iv seen vader interior sell for Β£1500+ But anyway i then started searching to see if this AEE would fit the mk2f i just acquired turns i google can't seem to find me a definite answer the closest iv got to an answer is this thread on club polo: https://www.clubpolo.co.uk/topic/13935-converting-a-gt-to-a-14-and-16/?page=7&tab=comments#comment-1168668 Which works out well for me as i still have the mk3 golf this engine came from and i have a complete mk2f with a 1.0 AAU in which has just had a new clutch by my understanding if i fit the following parts to the AEE from the AAU it should fit: flywheel clutch starter (or possibly a slimline starter off a 1994) gearbox (wouldn't use the 4 speed off the 1.0 would use my old AAV 5spd box which only has 65k miles on it which would mean i need a 5spd gearbox mount for a mk2f) alternator pulley crank pulley bit of shaving of metal and plastic and jobs a gooden Obviously the rest of that guide i can disregard as im not converting it to a GT im just getting the AEE to fit and i have a complete engine not just a bare engine so i have the inlet manifold and everything with the engine. however im pretty sure there is going to wiring issues getting the AEE's loom to mate up with the mk2f loom and also the AAU is SPI so would need a better fuel pump for the AEE same as when i went from AAV to 3F on my old polo If for some reason someone knows why this won't work please let me know and i will just dump this AEE in another mk3 golf that has a 1.8 ADZ engine but its slow and sluggish compared to this AEE Also on another note the golf with the AEE in came with a clutch kit as the clutch had almost gone (bite right at the top of the pedal and a little slip) now luckily my mk2f had just had a new clutch before i got it but i have looked it up online and the AEE clutch is 24 tooth 200mm and the mk2f uses a 24 tooth 190mm clutch i know its a long shot but who reckons the AEE clutch disc 200mm will fit inside the mk2f 190mm pressure plate? and work as i read from somewhere the mk2f clutches don't handle the AEE power very well and burn out fast so kinda hoping if for some chance the AEE clutch disc fits the mk2f pressure plate that the extra 10mm diameter will help it cope with the power better. Thanks everyone
  14. 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 little quieter (a little). So new clutch, pressure plate, release bearing, release fork, gear oil. ***Not fixed** input shaft bearing guys? I don't wanna take the gearbox off again if it isn't that So noise at idle, clutch down = no noise Has anyone had a similar issue? p.s I have a spare clutch now
  15. 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 else can i check? Thanks
  16. 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
  17. 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?
  18. Hi I would like to ask if anyone could shed any light on the following problem which has been getting worse during the last 6 months. When cold (damp weather too) the car will cold idle badly. Driving like this will make it jump/hesitate around 1200-2000rpm any gear. It does not like the accelerator pressed too quickly. If I drive 2 miles then switch off, it will NOT start again - only turn over. Leaving it for 10-15mins it will start ok again and then idle & run smoothly. Again, once the initial problem has gone, the car runs nicely for the rest of the day. The car has new fuel filter (correct one) and new oil separator. I have tested the imp values of the HT leads and coil pack and all values seem as per std. Every year I normally remove and clean out the throttle body too with TB cleaner and toothbrush. Spark plugs seem ok (3 pin Bosch as per Haynes Manual I have bought) Air filter is new Sometimes I add injector cleaner to petrol whilst filling up. I can think of the following possibilities but would like to hear from someone with more experience, ....rather than just replacing the list of items below (expensive) 1) injectors ? 2) coolant temp sensor ? 3) clean TB again ? (last time 1yr ago) 4) coil pack micro crack in plastic case + damp weather ? (although the car is fine for the rest of the day) 5) new plugs ? 6) MAF or air related problem / TB dirty / TB idle control ? 7) anything else ? I greatly appreciate any constructive tips to resolve this relatively new problem which for the last 8 years had never occurred. Thanks Phil
  19. What Car? Magazine are planning to do a video celebrating 40 years of the What Car? Car of the Year award - and we hope to include every previous winner. In 1995 they named the Volkswagen Polo as our Car of the Year, so they're trying to find a model from that year (but any Mk3 would do) to use in their video that they'll be shooting on 1st September in Alconbury. Can you help or do you happen to know anyone that could help? Any help would be hugely appreciated! There isn't much time left to get this sorted so if you could give DOUG a call or send him an email asap that would be great.

  20. Has anyone got any polo 6n2 or golf mk3 seats for sale please if anyone has the mk3 golf seats in the lighter colour instead of black ??? Sorry if it's in wrong one wouldn't let me post in different forum for some reason
  21. I have always wanted a harlequin as they are so different and rare! How much are they actually worth in good or poor condition? I have seen a couple for sale the last year and the prices vary greatly and they always seem to stay on ebay for quite away as if people aren't paying the money that is asked..? Thanks in advance -Shane

    Sounds of the Polo 16v

  23. I have a 1997 MK3 GTI. Initially no gear trouble but over the course of a few weeks, selecting reverse became increasingly difficult until now I can no longer select reverse and first gear is now where reverse used to be (press down and to the left and up) I am thinking it is the gear selector and not the actual gearbox? but not sure. I know this is vague but let me know if anyone else has had similar issues or knows anything at all about this problem -Liam Ps (The car was sitting for about 2 years before I got it running and the problem arose. Car is not currently being driven on the road)
