Re: cooling issue

If 1-2 doesn't put the fan on low speed the resistor has corroded and broken, you need a new fan

Re: Amber indicator tint

I was going to suggest 6N ones, but they don't fit

Re: Unable to open drivers door from inside or outside

Icy morning again The door did not unlock by remote again this morning. The key did not initially turn the lock, but a couple of seconds rubbing a warm finger on the metal part and the door unlocked with the key. When above freezing the door unlocks with the remote. It seems as though there is not q...

Re: Unable to open drivers door from inside or outside

I'm in :)

It looks like the ice was the problem. The key would not turn in the lock, but as the button was popping up I thought it was unlocked. It wasn't. Warmer air and it opened with the key. Now where is that silicone lubrcant

Re: Brake Light Fuse 2001 Polo Y Reg

You really need a multimeter to test, you'll get a basic one for a tenner or so.

The current flow is Fuse 13 > brake light switch (terminals 1 & 4) > 10 pin connector > brake lights.

Are you sure the earth from the light cluster is good ?

Re: Starter clicks twice then nothing after coil pack failure

Glad you got it sorted out. Burnt out earth strap makes sense, but I thought you had mentioned changing that in the first post.

.... and now you have a spare starter

A good clean up will do no harm at all

Re: Starter clicks twice then nothing after coil pack failure

What's the alternator error code. It sounds like there is still some fried wiring that needs replacement, but in the meantime eliminate what you can: Battery - what voltage is it Engine- plugs out, does it turn over by hand OK Test the old starter out of the car Test the new starter in the car by ru...

Re: Polo estate

Welcome. I'm not too sure about this, and some photos should help, but I believe the Polo estate is based on the 6N, and therefore the front wings from that model will fit and the 6N2 as well, though there is a difference between the standard vs GTi/Tdi models. The door switches on the 6N2 fail and ...

Re: Head gasket failure ?

Time for a bit of an update (I have has the car 6 years / 32,000 miles): The car is running again.I spoke to a garage I use and they had more faith in my abilities than I did. Convinced I had fitted the replacement head correctly they told me to give her a run. Everything seems OK, temperatures are ...

Re: Definitive Answer ?

Thanks for posting back with the solution, it's always good to get the end of the tale, especially when it's a happy ending on both the Polo and the T3 :lol:
