Re: MOT fail (position/fog lamp, brakes, emissions)

A frustrating day. Could not find any issues with the hoses (not to say there aren't any) and so I've ordered a new front O2 sensor to aid diagnostics.

Re: Trying to source a heating control flap mechanism?

If you are going to replace it you might as well remove the old one to be sure of getting the correct part. Mine (2002) was an oval plug connector but not sure about yours. I managed to find a Hella part that was cheaper than VW and it seems to have done the job.

Re: MOT fail (position/fog lamp, brakes, emissions)

Thanks. Will check hoses, etc. Just surprised if it's the sensor because a new one was fitted this time last year (NGK).

Re: MOT fail (position/fog lamp, brakes, emissions)

At idle (engine 70C) 1.000, 0.992, 0.996, etc.

At fast idle (2000rpm) 0.952, 0.988, 0.996, 0.976 (all over the place)

Lambda self adaption is at 5%

Re: MOT fail (position/fog lamp, brakes, emissions)

I was reviewing the MOT emissions test document and noticed one thing. The vehicle is incorrectly listed as a 1.2l. Not sure how this could happen if the vehicle registration data is used. Could the specification of a 1.2l engined Polo vs the 1.4l have any impact at all on the emissions test? Edit....

Re: Oil pressure issues

You really need a scan tool/cable that works, otherwise it's guesswork and swapping parts. It could be the oil pressure switch but I've had a fair share of issues with my Polo and never had one fail. There is also an oil level switch but IIRC that just illuminates a warning lamp.

Re: Trying to source a heating control flap mechanism?

Year and model of the vehicle.

Is it square plug or oval plug?

Are you able to scan for any codes?

Re: Engine swap ideas?

What is the current odometer reading? That will help determine potential failure points and/or work required. A good independent VW specialist will offer better value than VW. Not sure where you are located but someone might be able to recommend. I tend to do most work myself now but have have good ...

Re: Automatic fluid change

Thanks again. I'll get 3l in case needed. Thinking to add approx 2l then do same again next year (assuming there are no contraindications like wear/debris).

Re: Automatic fluid change

That's a relief. Sometimes those online parts catalogues don't give complete information.

What quantity of ATF should I have at hand for the drain and refill? I guess its going to be the sump only, so 2l?
