Morning all, I was wondering if any of you have experience with the newer 2015 polo 6C 1.2 tsi bluemotion. My wife is considering buying one as her next car, I was just wondering if anyone could advise me on any common faults or issues I should look out for. Am I right in thinking that it's pretty much the same chassis, and mechanically as the 2009 seat ibiza which is what she had before? I've looked at Wikipedia but can't find any mention of the one she's looking at which is a 2015 1.2 TSI blue motion SE. Cheers
My son has mk5 (I think) year 2000 1.4L Polo. The speedometer started to work intermittently and now the needle simply sits at about the 140mph mark. After disconnecting and removing it for inspection (which told me very little) it reset itself and worked OK for a couple of days but the fault returned. I'm assuming it reset because it was effectively disconnected from the battery but I have not had the chance to repeat it yet. There are second hand instrument clusters on ebay for £20.00 but one of the adverts had this message "It will need to be coded to your vehicle using diagnostic equipment when fitting" is this true? The air bag light is also on permanently, could this be part of the same fault? I was hoping I could simply swap the cluster for another. My alternative solution is to give the cluster to Cartronix in Waterlooville for a £99.00 repair.
Hi there, we have a mk5 2015 Polo SE design. My son was swiped by a transit van who didn't bother stopping so we've opted to try fitting a new one instead of claiming on our insurance. Does anybody have access to a decent workshop manual procedure on how to do this. I found one online but it incomplete or doesn't work properly. Better still a video demo, but not holding my breath. Any help would be brilliant. Cheers
Hi all I've been asked to find a Mk 4/5 Polo (1994-2002) for a Volkswagen UK event next January – also see my post in the Mk 4 page. The car required has to be a mainstream model (ie E, S, SE, 16V possibly) and has to be unmodified if at all possible. It also has to be available for three days at the start of January. If you've got such a car, post a photo or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll take a look and get in touch if I think the car is suitable. Cheers! Rich PoloDriver.com
Hello I just bought a 6n2 tdi! However it doesn't have fog lights. I have just bought some for the car. Reading online I see some people mention the wiring should already be in place? I have pulled the front grills off and can't find any pre existing wiring for fog lights? Has anyone else done this before here who could offer some guidance? Kind Regards -Shane
