  1. Hi all! First post and I need a little help. I discovered my headlight had water pooling at the bottom and there was condensation. I have removed the headlight and the rubber seals that cover where the bulbs sit. I was able to pour out most the water from what looked like a drainage hole. I’m wondering if there was a plug that has fallen out which is causing the water ingress. Theres no cracks or stone chips, I’ve had the car from pretty much brand new and the only thing I can think of is that it happened when it went in for an mot and they replaced a bulb to do me a favour but one of the seals wasn’t put back on properly as it happened shortly after this. The headlamp is currently in my airing cupboard drying out. Should I be safe and put some silicone around it or could it be getting in through the drainage hole, if that is what it is? This is on a 64 plate facelift polo. I realise now would have been good to include a photo but I can’t get one right now so I’ll post one ASAP! Thank you in advance. 🙂
  2. Hi There, and first I'd like to thank your forum (and others) for helping myself and my dad fit both parking sensors and cruise control to my polo and diagnose all manner of faults/tweaks on it. The fault on my polo is intermittent, and almost always follows a day of heavy rain, basically the steering light illuminates (wile driving or manuvering) and the power steering becomes heavy. Once this is triggered the next time the car starts the power steering may not start at all, and by switching it on and off a few times it'll eventually engage (with or without light and heavy steering). Our local VW garage identified it (with my persistence it was water ingress) that the connections of the pump and loom have water ingress and have had corrosion. Price to replace both the pump and the loom at about £1140 fitted! £1140 is a fair bit more than I'd like to spend, and I believe between my dad and I we have the skills to fix this ourselves, or at the least buy the parts for a local garage to fit for a lot less! The technical bits: I have a VCDS system and the fault is diagnosed (and agreed by the VW garage) as a short to ground, although currently its reset I believe it was on the reference voltage, when it reappears I'll post the exact fault. The controller is identified as: 6R0423156A Questions: 1.If I was to buy a replacement, can it be of a slightly different part number ie.6Q0423156? If so is this a direct drop in replacement or does it need some complex calibration? Suggested replacement parts: New: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/TRW-POWER-STEERING-PUMP-6R0423156-6Q0423156-VW-POLO-LUPO-IBIZA-SKODA-FABIA-NEW-/200973776369?pt=UK_CarsParts_Vehicles_CarParts_SM&hash=item2ecaf875f1 Different Part no:http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/VW-POLO-1-2-ELECTRIC-POWER-STEERING-PUMP-6Q0423156M-6Q1423051AD-6Q2423051R-/251360198249?pt=UK_CarsParts_Vehicles_CarParts_SM&hash=item3a863c3e69 2. The garage was adamant that both the loom and the pump needed replacing, I can't personally see why the loom should fail (its just wires isnt it?) and might just need some tape to check its all sealed against water, to be honest the pump itself might still be ok and just need better water protection, what do you think? 3. Are there any service manuals/forum guides on the best way to access and replace the pump? Sorry for the long post and I hope its all in the right place, thanks in advance for the help.
