Re: FUEL FILTER 2003 9N 75HP 1.4 (BBY)

I have the same model, 2002. I changed the fuel filter last summer and as I recall it is 3bar for the BBY engine. You also need to check that the filter has the correct pipe fittings for return etc. Best thing is to look under the rear of the vehicle just in front the rear offside wheel and confirm....

Re: 2002 POLO 1.2 Rear Wiper on all the time

I remember rooting around by the pedal box trying to locate a relay or something in connection with my rear wiper which has a mind of its own. Hadn't realised it was a control module. Will have another look while the weather is fine.

Re: 2002 POLO 1.2 Rear Wiper on all the time

Then where is the smart control module you speak of? Somewhere internal to the ECU?

Re: Oil Change is it needed

Just out of interest have you ever weighed old oil vs new oil by volume to measure the contaminant load?

Re: 2002 POLO 1.2 Rear Wiper on all the time

These wipers will be getting controlled by a smart control module which will have a relay built into it, so you still need to work out if it is the wiper stalk or that controller unfortunately, the easy first stab at this could be to buy a used stalk - though some of them will also be suspect, but ...

Re: Oil Change is it needed

Agree that regular changes - according to operating conditions - are a good way to reduce risk of expensive engine failure. You can buy an oil change suction pump to change the oil yourself from above. If you do regular changes (i.e. not much debris in the oil) you'd probably be OK using it. They us...

Re: Polo heater problem

I had this problem earlier. I put up with it for over a year though it drove me to distraction (hot when I needed cold and vice-versa). Finally I found the time (and weather) to do the job and wish I'd done it earlier. As RUM4MO says you can play around tweaking the controls but it's time consuming ...

Re: 2005 VW Polo 1.416v Sport (9N)

Cannot recall if the EML came on when I had a problem with the coil packs. I think it was flashing though. If the packs were just starting to go the effects might not be enough to trigger the EML. For key components I'd go with original equipment unless there is a good reason to fit something else.

Re: Power Problems

You need to check for any codes.

Not much to disturb if you've carefully removed and replaced only the front bumper and headlights.

Re: 2005 VW Polo 1.416v Sport (9N)

It might be worthwhile to swap the coil packs on the affected cylinders with those on the good cylinders and check if the fault moves with them.

Re: Drone like noise, possible wheel bearing

Preparing to replace the front n/s hub. I got the tool to do it off eBay.

A YouTube video about hub replacement mentioned the following lubricants:

Molykote high pressure grease (Hub assy into carrier)

Polycarbamide (driveshaft spline)

Practically speaking, what brands/products can I use?

Re: VW Polo 9N 2003 boot tonneau cover

Had this problem earlier. As mentioned above, I used a couple of self tapping screws and a bit of Araldite adhesive.
