Hi, I have a VW polo gti 16v 6n2 and went to use the wipers last night and the back one wouldn't switch off just kept going. the water jet doesn't seem to be working on the back as there was no water coming out, then the front wipers started going and wouldn't stop had to pull the fuse on both front and back. Also when i pressed the back wiper button the headlight washer activated and sprayed. Sounds like a short somewhere. Any ideas what is causing this issue? the stalk is okay, when i move it to the fast potion it speeds up and slows down when moved back but doesn't switch off in the off position. Update: When the boot is open the front wipers and back wiper stops so tried testing the lock with with boot lid open and it went off so looks like its coming from the locking mechanism on the boot lid
Hi guys, my wiper motor has packed up on my 76 polo. I've stripped cleaned and reassembled it which got it going very slowly but it has stopped again. Does anyone know where I could pick up a motor that would work on my car? I can't find one listed anywhere. Failing that can anyone recommend a good repair place that can salvage this one? The mechanism is well lubed and moving freely. Thanks!
Hi there, after spending numerous hours in the freezing cold with a multimeter I can say that there isn't a wiring issues on the drivers door of my 2005 VW polo, this part (see image) is attached to the window motor on the drivers side door. Im assuming it's responsible for the 'one touch' feature with the windows as they are able to open and close without you having to hold the switch. However through some testing I have figured that this might be why both windows are working intermittently. I came to this conclusion when I turned the ignition switch on and pressed the window switch down on both sides of the car and got nothing. I then proceeded to remove the larger plug from the top of this part and place it back in and then to my surprise the windows worked, and then they stopped, the issue I'm having is that the windows didn't stop working after I turned the ignition off and then back on again, it was almost as if it were timed. There is no corrosion on any of the contacts and non of the pins/clamps are bent out of place. is it worth spending £35 to replace this part in hopes it fixes the issue or have I wondered from the beaten track. please advise thanks very much.
Hi! So I installed a new gearbox and now the car is not starting. Starter is just turning the motor over but it is not igniting I guess? After I try to start the car oil level light comes on in the dashboard although I checked and oil level is normal. Any ideas why it is not starting? OP has now Fixed the problem
