VW Polo 6N2 Door Locks

Recommended Posts

mckln335

Hello everyone,

 

I bought a 2000 VW Polo 6N2 last October as a car to use during the winter so I didn't have to use the motorbike. When I bought it there was no lock cylinder in the driver's side door, so I've never been able to lock it. Now i'm thinking about selling it and would like to sort the locks out. This is where it gets confusing. I bought a pair of cylinders c/w keys, paddles and springs thinking that would sort it (1st image). I also bought a lock repair kit just in case any bits were missing (2nd image). I then took the passenger's side door handle off to check whether the lock cylinder was the same as the one I had bought. It turns out they are different (3rd image). Were there 2 types of locks fitted to these cars or am I missing something here? I can find loads of repair kits on eBay etc. to repair the type of lock that I have but I can't find the lock cylinder itself anywhere. I don't think the hook type shown in the 1st image will fit as there are lugs missing and the part where the key goes in appears to be smaller in diameter. I don't want to spend a fortune as the car isn't worth a huge amount but I'd like to get it sorted for the next owner if possible.

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

 

Cheers,

 

Mark

Hi Nige,

 

Thanks, good to be here. 

 

Thanks for your reply, that's what I thought. What would you say my options are then? Either try and source a couple of handles with keys from the scrappy or speak to a VW Dealer? If I got a pair of the early type second hand handle assemblies from a scrappy, would the paddles fit in the same way as my existing ones would?

 

Cheers,

I would try and source some "new" style locks there must be plenty being broken on eBay or try StevensVW dismantles in Essex they normally have plenty of 6N2's in stock

Hi Nige, 

 

Just wanted to say thanks for your help. I sourced some 2nd hand locks from Stevens VW and fitted them yesterday morning, even the central locking still worked! Thanks again! 

 

Cheers,

      Why is nothing on these vw cars straight forward? Everything has to be overly designed. Of coarse except for the rubbish lock designs -_- i just guess vw dont want enthusiastics to work on their own cars and take it into vw... 
       
      I've  read guides on how to remove the handle. Undo the torx screw and then apparently they magically come out. 
       
      Well this car has central locking and theres a gold plate going between a slot at the back of the lock mechanism. Its connected to what looks like a central locking pump... I cant figure out how to make the little gold plate piss out out the way so i can remove the handle. Looking at it it has to go down somehow.. Ive stripped the interior door off to try prod around and had no joy. Please someone help. HELP.
