Engine noise out of interest

I know when you remove an oil filler cap the engine will become unhappy and I thought I would do this on my daughters 1.2 9N and wondering what this noise is. Its only there with cap off but sometimes I can hear this noise when pulling away. It idles and revs so smoothly and quietly, its just under ...

Bottoming out?

On a 1.2 9n can the top engine mount near the suspension mount bottom out and cause a knock? I ask as I am trying to fine a knock that is there and the mount when I lift the engine slightly all comes up as if its not attached and now wondering if the centre bolt has sunk enough to bottom out against...

Re: Engine sound when pulling away 9N

Thanks, that is a good suggestion about removing the belt as the engine will still run, will do.

I did fit a new exhaust last year all bar the flexi pipe, will look into it

Engine sound when pulling away 9N

Thanks for quick response Presume the belt can either be stretched as its very very shiny or the tensioner has weakened. There again, I'm not convinced a tensioner with that sized spring can weaken. That only leaves a soft or stretched belt, can't be anything else surely. Although then engine mount ...

Engine sound when pulling away 1.2 9N

Hi All Been having a look at noises from the engine offside area This is done with ease using a bar, but should the mount be this soft and low down? https://youtu.be/hDv2Hg-Mhhs https://youtu.be/x5dNmevJUh0 Also, when i look a the belt, it has or is touching now and then as can be seen by the shiny ...

Re: Engine sound when pulling away 9N

I need to look at this again as its a pain. I have replaced the lower rear engine mount and all seems to look OK but to be honest, not being too familiar with the car, I could do with some suggestions When you pull away, especially from cold, it feels like the there is either loose trim or engine tr...

Re: Battery charging with external charger

Thanks for the responses.

The charger is older but works well on my 5 series BM and my other car. I'll check it for damage and maybe check it on the daily car to see if its faulty and if so, will treat myself to a new one

Cheers

Battery charging with external charger

Last weekend I tried to charge my daughters 2004 1.2 Polo but when I put the clips from the external charger onto the battery, it didn't like it. I put the red clip off the charger + onto the battery terminal with the thick red wire and then black clip off charger to the black wire on the battery. I...

Re: Gentle knocking noise from front offside

Hi All

Managed to find time to track the noise and it turned out to be a bad drop link which fortunately was a cheap and quick fix

Thanks for everyone's advice and help

Much appreciated

Re: Lower engine mount bolt

Thanks, this what I have done now :) I just didn’t know if it pivoted on the bolt or bush and how tight I should do the bolt as it arrived all floppy for assembly. I was hoping it was going to get rid of what feels like something touching when you pull away or get biting point on the clutch asi can ...
