Help with my coilovers over Christmas

Recommended Posts


Hello Club Poloers,


Long shot because I don't use CP too much anymore and I'm not sure how active people are on here, but I need some help over the Christmas period.


My Polo is on coilovers but I raised it ages ago, but would like to lower it back down. I don't really have any tools and I think it might be tricky as they're probably seized up. I was wondering if anyone in the Huddersfield area would be up for helping me lower it back down over Christmas? I'll be in Huddersfield from 22nd December to 1st January. Crate of beer in it for whoever can help me. Preferably someone with a decent garage space/ramp to do it in.

Good place to start is spraying them with wd40 every few days to start lossening them up a shade.

      Im fitting some coilovers to my mk2f and they came with pretty much brand new top mount bearings on the front but nothing on the rear, I'm wondering if something like mk2 golf rear top mounts will fit? They are alot cheaper and easier to find then polo ones.

      Had my new AP coilovers fitted last night, so naturally I went to take it for a cheeky drive straight away, I put the car into gear, and went to find the biting point and there was a massive (and very loud) grinding/painful noise coming from the front of the car, the noise is happening as I approach biting point, in every gear including reverse, but it screeches for 5th + 6th.  The car starts, idles, and revs normally, the clutch appears to be working as it should, and the gears go in perfectly every time. But when I go to move something is preventing the car from sending any power to the wheels. I can't see anything visable that would cause this. 
      The car was perfectly fine to drive home last night from work - not a single issue, and after coilovers were fitted this problem arose, is it just a coincidence that something else went wrong at the same time? 
      Video of the screeching noise: https://youtu.be/XPhBMG-R6e4
      I can't seem to find anything online that explains what is going on, so any help would be appreciated.
      The car does look better lowered though, just a subtle change to start with:
