  1. Hi Are there 2 types of timing belt tensioner on 1.4 Tdi. I changed timing belt kit on one of the polo 1.4 AMF and it had to be tensioned manually until arrow / pointer was in the middle of the cut. However I have another polo 1.4 TDI Pd 75 sports and the tensioner looks different without the pin or arrow in it. My question is how is it tensioned ? or whats the procedure? Thanks

    Genuine VW caddy pickup 1.9D Manual gearbox MOT until January 2020 Mileage is 105,575 miles but will rise slightly as I'm using this as a daily driver. V5 with a few MOT's present. All history available online. 2 x Keys. This is a very reliable truck (bought from Essex and did not skip a beat down the motorway or back road) The only thing that didn't survive was the after market cassette player so currently has no ICE. Handles like a little go cart!! it is great fun to drive. Doesn't smoke, starts first time every time (once the coil has warmed up) New Tonneau cover fitted. Truck is lowered on springs (great for fast cornering) 15" alloys fitted (not very DUB) I did put my Polo GTI alloys on (BBS) but they will be going back onto the polo. The Caddy is 20 years old, and is showing its age in the usual places. Slight surface rust on the arches and above the windscreen. Also a couple of random patches around the body work and doors. This is all superficial. Nice straight bed, but again has superficial rust in places that do not affect the car, but look tatty and could do with a tidy. My plan was to remove the load liner and repair/ repaint the truck. The truck has recently had the rear top mounts fully welded and plastidipped for a good seal. Looks scruffy! but could easily be sorted. Track rod end (Wishbones) replaced on the 15th April (This cost me £260) Tow bar removed with professionally blanked electronics (Cost me £60). The tow bar is included in the sale however. Only selling as I bought this on a whim while my wife was at work as a run about/show car for me and a second car for her. However she really doesn't like it. So its got to go unfortunately. I have wanted one since I was about 15, so I am glad I can say I owned one. This will make a great running project for someone. But unfortunately it wont be me. Ready to drive away with that long MOT. Any questions please ask. Genuine interest only, I will get back to you asap. I am a working dad to 2 (almost 3!!) kids so time is precious. SWAPS SERIOUSLY CONSIDERED Thanks G 07557 509 785

  3. hello i have a question about gearbox oil leak on a 1.4 tdi polo 9n. Oil is not leaking massively but i can see small drop of oil sitting on bolt where VW logo is. Picture attached. This VW plate is held by 2 bolts. I think it is leaking from the plate and siting on the bolt as thats where gearbox is wet. Is it possible to remove this vw plate, resealing it without moving any internal parts or is this plate holding something internally? Thank you.

    Should I scrap it? (2001 1.4 TDI)

    Hi all, I have an old VW Polo 1.4 TDI (2001) that's been sitting unused for over 3 years now (I know.. life just got a bit crazy). The reason I didn't sell it the moment I got a new car is : - There was an intermittent starting issue which I spent a fair bit of money getting looked at but it never got fixed. Eventually the MOT guy said it's probably the fuel pump relay as he's seen it before with these cars. There was an intermittent indicator stalk issue where smoke would come out of it! Again, it was looked at but never fixed.. I couldn't sell it in good conscience like that. What if it caught on fire and someone got hurt! I'd still feel guilty even if I explained the problem on sale. Annoyingly I did prep it for sale just before I left it to rot: I put on a new tyre, and a new exhaust, and cleaned it up. Now it has the usual problems associated with being left.. It's gone a little bit mouldy here and there inside, moss on the windows, and the brakes look a bit rusty. I have a few choices from what I can tell : - 1) There's a guy that keeps knocking at my door from "MC Motors", who has offered me £100 for it. He just wants to cut it up and scrap it. 2) Replace the battery, get the engine going and advertise it for sale with the problems listed. 3) Replace the battery, get the engine going, pump the tyres up and try and get the 2 issues fixed, then put it up for sale. 4) Just try and sell as it, either on eBay or the classifieds here. I really am not sure what to do. A part of me wants to just take the £100 and be done with it, but I know the engine works and it might make a nice little run about for someone, and I could perhaps earn a bit more from it... Though I might be deluded The frustrating thing is I know with a bit of TLC it could be a nice car - the body work is fine, and it never really had any other problems while it was in regular use. I did try and jump start it recently off of my car, but it wouldn't turn over! I was told it is probably because the VW's battery is knackered and sapping the power, also my new car is petrol and I think the battery doesn't have as much kick as a battery for a diesel..? Any help would be much appreciated. I'm in Leicester if anyone wants to take a look.
  7. 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
  8. I have had a front drivers side spring snap on my 2006 tdi polo. I have replaced the spring but now can not get the shock back into to the hub. It will not go low enough to insert the shock. I have removed the trackrod end but the drivesshaft is still connected. I have previously replaced the passengers side with no issues, just needed to put slight pressure on the hub to allow it to slip in. Please can anyone help?
  9. So my polo won't start, it was intermittent now nothing, I've seen a thread about it being a dodgy ignition switch, that been ruled out today as i tried a new one on it and no joy, just trying to find out if anyone knows of any other route to go, battery is good, starter and all the is good, got ignition just no crank
  10. Looking for an induction kit and find out what other people have used, I know it doesn't make much of a difference, but my airbox has been mauled so just going to get rid an replace, any suggestions?
  11. Got this car for a few parts, now selling the rest. The car is black, not sure the paint code. All parts are located outside Kirriemuir, Scotland.

Cheers.
  12. 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

    6n2 1.4 TDI

    Well after owning my mk2 polo for 3 years I've decided to move on and bought myself a 6n2 1.4 tdi SE and it's green, any advise and common issues with these cars?,m
  14. Hi I recently brought a 6n2 1.4 tdi polo, had massive problems with starting the car, turns out it was the battery as it was only 40ah battery! So I got that replaced and everything was fine, but recently it's doing the same, it just cranks over fast but doesn't fire, sometimes it does it, sometimes it doesn't or it starts then dies about 2 seconds later and flashes up a battery light icon, I changed the fuel filter when I done the battery, any ideas what could be causing this? Thank you

    Pollyanna (Polly) Polo 1.4 TDI

    Hi, After being a member for nearly a year, I thought I better post my build.. I used to own a Mazda MX-5 which was appropriately nicknamed "Deathtrap". Anyway.. after spending many monies/days on the MX-5 I decided enough was enough, this enlightenment happened when I could literally put my fist through the rust. So I bought my 2008 1.4 TDI Match Polo with 32,000 miles on the clock. Here's a picture of the day I got her; My original plan wasn't to mod her at all, as I just wanted something reliable with a bit of power. But that all changed.. This was her a week ago; Up until this point I have done the following: Debadged the rear, Sprayed some interior components and added some vinyl stripes on the front. However today I've bought some new wheels! I've also been playing around with the TDI badge for a while, not sure about this so I welcome criticism/opinions; List of mods to come; Straight pipe exhaust, Lower it!, and a remap. Thanks for taking the time to look at my build, any comments are welcome. Hope to see some of you at Tatton Park on the 7th!

    ECU remap problem

    Remap vw polo 6n2 tdi
  22. Hey guys Hopefully this is the right area to ask the question, I'll just get straight to the point. Basically my car (details at end) for the last 3000 miles has been making a whining noise. Its always been fairly noisy inside due to road noise but this is different. At first I thought it was just tyre noise but it isn't, it also doesn't seem to be wheel bearing (doesn't get louder or dissapear when turning) The noise is a humming/wuring sound, noticeable starting around 25-30mph (quite faintly) but then gets louder and increases pitch the faster I go. At around 60 its fairly loud, sometimes I have to turn my radio up to here it clearly. The only way I can really explain the sound is like tyre noise, increasing pitch and noise with speed. The sound doesn't go away with either clutch in or out. Noise seems to be coming from behind dash (hard to tell exactly where about) Sometimes in the morning 3rd gear crunches a little bit, seems to also drop into 3rd gear occasionally too. No problem ever with other gears So the question is, has anyone had this problem before, or had any experience with this and know the problem? My concern was whether its something to do with driveshaft. Car: Vw Polo 6n2 1.4 TDI SE Mileage: 158,000ish Thanks in advance
  23. Hi there, I have a problem with my car and was hoping someone could tell me what the problem could be. Sorry for long post, I'm just trying to be as informative as possible. If you don't want to read, skip to "symptoms" [back story] It started loosing coolant every 1200 miles, so I (stupidly) poured a little Radweld into it. And that's when problems arose. It all foamed out the expansion tank, car heater fluctuated from mega hot to freezing cold and all sorts of stuff. Also the car got to temperature VERY quickly. I took it to the garage and they flushed out the system, said there was no blockages and they thought it could be the head gasket Took it to another garage and they changed thermostat and said everything working fine, there's no holes or leaks or blockages (they also flushed they system). They said they couldn't duplicate the problems I was having. They also suspected the head, they said it will get worse if not fixed (they think the coolant was escaping through combustion chamber) ANYWAY, I decided to just run the car as normal, carry 2x 2litres bottle of water in the boot and top up as required and stop if car temp is about to rise. This is where the problems changed My car suddenly stopped firing out coolant, heaters suddenly started working as they should, great my car fixed itself...or so I thought. It still got to temperature a lot quicker than normal, but I didn't see that as a problem, more as a bonus really, especially with it being a diesel and normally taking for ever to warm up. Everything was normal apart from when I came to junctions and traffic lights, 10 seconds later my heaters would go cold, I mean freezing cold! As soon as I applied to revs around 1300rpm, it came through hot again. From 900rpm (tick over) to 1200 ish, thats where it would stay cold, any higher, then my heaters would start blowing out heat again. I drove it like this for around 1000 miles and then symptoms changed again!! All of a sudden, heat came out the heaters at traffic lights and junctions and behaving normally. The car went back to taking a while to warm up (bloody diesels). Occasionally having to still top up coolant every 1500miles (the light comes on dash) all seemed great. But this is how it is now and these are the symptoms that I have: Symptom 1 Right, my cars fine apart from going up hills, a normal step hill. There's one hill I go up and the heaters turn cold around halfway up, 5 seconds later my car temp starts shooting up, I've never let it reach max, its only just touched around 110 then goes straight back down. If i'm in top gear and go up the hill, the temperature shoots up a lot quicker than it would if I dropped down to 4th. Symptom 2 If i'm on the motorway and start doing 80mph, then after a minute or so, the heaters turn cold, then as expected the temperature starts to rise. I slow down, the heaters start blowing warm air and the temperature goes down. Now you could say "well don't do 80mph, that's speeding" but my car still shouldn't do that and if I need to get past someone quickly I need to know my car is going to hold up. I try to drive around it by making sure my car stays bang on 70mph or slightly under and not really overtaking anyone, but after half an hour I get the same symptoms as I do at 80mph. I have noticed if I put my foot flat to the floor the heaters turn cold for a few seconds. I try to go back roads a lot of the time as my car is completely fine at 60 and I get no issues, but I cant go back roads and avoid hills forever So yea these are the problems i'm having and would really appreciate if someone could help point me in the right direction as to what it could be as its really annoying me. Cheers
  24. Hi, Could someone please tell how I would go about removing the EGR valve on my 6N2? Thanks

    Olly's 9N3 TDI

    Hi everyone! Upgraded my car on Saturday from a Corsa 1.0 (work of the devil!) to a 1.4TDI for my daily commute from Hull to York! Planning on some quick progress with this so watch this space! Going for purple on black, just waiting for some matt purple plasti dip to arrive to do various parts of the car with! The day I got her: Needed a good clean inside and out so I did that and the fitted a GTi grill Took her for a quick spin! Don't worry, yesterday I took the GTi off and replaced it with something a bit more suiting! GTi lowers are in the post too! Also debadged the rear and dewipered too! I can confirm that you do not need to disconnect the washer jet in the engine bay, no water comes out at all with what I did, 3 zip tyres a bit of tape! The rear looks a ton better now! That's about it for now! Stuff on their way/will soon be ordered are: FK Highsport Coilovers - 2 weeks delivery time Team Heko wind deflectors New n/s fog light New map reading light Few purple goodies Plasti Dip Pressed plates Not sure what wheels to go for though! Any help would be appreciated! Quite like porsche twists but I'd prefer something with the 5x100 PCD so I don't need adapters. Will update when there's something worth updating about!
