Re: Rocker gasket

It's not like the early golf engines, they did have a rocker cover. The GTi has a cam cover, the camshaft "bearings" are part of the cover itself.

I used a different anaerobic sealant that I had on the shelf, used on a different car where 518 is recommended. You don't need much.

Re: Rocker gasket

You can remove the rocker cam cover without touching the cam belt. There is no gasket. Don't be tempted to use RTV, if it is clean and dry an anaerobic sealant like Loctite 518 will be perfect Release the bolts gradually, the springs will be putting pressure on the cam / cam cover. Trickiest is the ...

Welcome,

Seems nothing more complex that the wires to the back of the clocks have not been pushed back correctly ???

Welcome ! The remote locking is pneumatic and there's a design issue with the pump, read this https://uk-polos.net/viewtopic.php?t=61853 I have a similar problem with the drivers door on mine sometimes. You "unlock" it but it remains locked, but trying again does open it. In winter frost makes the p...

Re: Rear Shock Absorbers

You might find this site useful to get part numbers https://volkswagen.7zap.com/en/rdw/polo+derby+vento-ind/po/1999-158/5/511-511010/ and then a quick google for the part number should get some useful sources :wink: At the moment online is probably going to be easier than local motor factors or deal...

Re: Ignition change

Welcome !

The key has a chip in the head part of it which is read by the coil reader, linked to the immobiliser.

Just swap the head of the key over - take a look here, long story for simple problem viewtopic.php?f=7&t=71988

Re: Parasitic Drain - Windows

Just wondering how you got on with the second window regulator. Have you fixed it, or decided there is nothing to fix ?

Re: Window regulator

Welcome !

They are different part numbers - the letter at the end is different.

Find someone who is breaking a car, note the 2 door and 4 door parts are different

Re: Parasitic Drain - Windows

Well, it's a lot colder this evening than it was this morning, down to 6 degrees C. Came home and just done the test. After an initial peak up to over 1 amp, it then settled down to about 0.28 amps and after another minute dropped down again to a steady 35ma. This was done with the car unlocked, oth...

So you're wanting me to go outside and start the diagnostics on my own car, something I haven't got round to for at least 6 months already :lol: Obviously I haven't, but I would have done so right now if any of my 4 meters were with me at the moment. I'll try and remember to bring them home with me ...

Re: Parasitic Drain - Windows

Pulling together / translating that post I observe the following The J393 module is best thought of as the remote unlocking receiver. I did look for its location, but didn't find it either so said nothing. The motor moves up / down either in the normal way through the operation of the switch, or by ...
