Surface rust and plastic trim

Recommended Posts


My car has some rust under the black plastic that is glued to the car, does anyone know how to get the plastic bits off and back on so I can remove and fix the rust? Any tips on getting rid of the rust would be great too - it's only surface rust :smile: thank you.

The arch ones are not normally glued, there are 2 lumps on the back that go into holes in the body


If someone broke it in the past it may have been glued


Get a small flat head screw driver and tape the tip and use that to tease the edges up and see if itll pop off


The long ones on the door have a foam adhesive on the back which can be bought

      apologies if this is the wrong section of the forum (im new to posting here, long time lurker)
      i have a polo 9n 1.2 3 cylinder, i have heard that it is possible to swap the throttle bodies from that of a mk4 golf, is there a specific engine size from the golf that i need to get it from or will they all fit, i dont know if the golfs use a universal size or they change with engine size which i assume, any help will be appreciated.
      also i have had trouble of finding exhaust systems that will fit the car, i have a quote of 150 to get a custom backbox made by hand, however is there any full catback systems that you guys use on your polo's
      many thanks,

      Hello polo people I post on here way to often at the moment but I'm having a slight issue with my cam belt it seems to be tracking to one side that much that the lip of the belt is just off the cam sprocket, now iv changed the water pump and belt plus the aux belt, my thinking is that the water pump is slightly off centre or iv tightened the aux belt to much. But just incase is there anything I can do to troubleshoot this? Cheers

      Hey guys so the engine swap to the 1.6 AEE engine has gone on hold as my girlfriend can't afford the insurance price with that engine swap done so we are looking to get a little more power out of the little 1.0 AAU now i have some parts kicking about from my old MK2F which was a 1.3 AAV but i changed engine for 3F.
      Parts i have laying arround are:
      1.3 AAV ECU
      1.3 AAV Wiring loom
      1.3 AAV Air Doughnut
      1.3 AAV 5spd Gearbox
      1.4 ABD SPI Throttle body
      1.4 ABD Induction elbow
      (maybe a little overkill)
      1.8 ADZ SPI Throttle Body
      1.8 ADZ Induction Elbow
      1.8 ADZ Airbox & Filter
      (whole ADZ engine & wiring loom)
      Im thinking maybe:
      1.3 AAV ECU
      1.4 ABD / 1.8 ADZ SPI throttle body
      1.8 ADZ Induction Elbow
      1.8 ADZ Airbox & Filter
      Think that should give it a little more power under the pedal? got quite a bit like i said so if anyone else knows of a way to get a little more power out of the AAU with the parts i have listed above please let me know
