Re: Polo 9n 2004 Bonnet micro switch

Have taken bonnet catch off and removed micro switch. Hoping I managed to get enough electrical cleaner inside switch and given it quite a pressings hoping it’s lodged any dirt.
Refitted and light hasn’t come on yet on dash :0
Thanks for the advice :)
Cheers

Re: Polo 9n 2004 Bonnet micro switch

You can buy new bonnet catches with switches for the Golf models and they look the same as the Polo catches etc. This is an example ebay advert https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/363781876295?_trkparms=amclksrc%3DITM%26aid%3D1110006%26algo%3DHOMESPLICE.SIM%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D238213%26meid%3Da42abfc8d00b47f1b8...

Re: Polo 9n 2004 Bonnet micro switch

If the car wasn’t used as much, I would also take it apart to have a look but knowing my luck I would run out of time and it would end in a divorce LOL
Thanks for sharing the findings

5th gear able adjustment Polo 9n 2004

Hi All A while ago I adjusted the cables as 1st gear was difficult to engage. All gears now 1 to 4 are so easy to get. 5th however can be hit and miss. I have been so reluctant to adjust all again and undo the adjustment I have already made to improve. There are 2 cables, is there a chance that one ...

Re: Passenger front door lock 9N

The passenger door lock is intermittent.
The only clue I have is that when I look the car from the drivers side I can hear the drivers motor whirring sound.
I am presuming the drivers door lock governs the passenger door side? If so, where do I need to look?
Thanks for any advice
Cheers

Oil leak

I am losing oil and looking under the car I see oil has been running down the radiator hose from above. Any ideas where it’s coming from? What are the typical leaks in this area, rocker gasket?
It’s a 1.2 petrol 2004
Any help appreciated
Cheers
