High tick over issue.

Hey guys, my 2012 1.2tdi has developed a little problem. When stopping at lights or a junction the revs pick up slightly after a second. If I blip the throttle it drops back but then after another second picks back up again, any ideas??
Thanks in advance for any help,

Mark.

Re: Aircon weird noise

Mine made a similar noise for a few days then stopped working completely, it's going back to the dealer to be repaired under warranty in the morning.

I'll post the details of work done once I've picked the car up, hopefully it will be of help to you.

Re: Common faults

Just the usual - service history, accidents, hpi, etc. I have a 2015 BlueGT and have had no problems apart from squeaking brakes (but the dealer seems to be deaf, so keeps telling me there's no issue!) ahh the old "squeaking brake" issue, mine is ridiculously bad but it doesn't effect brake perform...

Re: have you modified your polo??

Those wheels make a massive difference, they look amazing, how long have the springs been fitted?

Polo 6r lowering question

I was wondering if it's possible to lower just the rear of my polo 6r around 25/30mm? The reason I ask is, due to the steepness of my drive if I lower the front, the bumper will catch upon entry. I know I'll need to have a 4 wheel alignment done but was wondering if it's been done/could be done. Tha...

Re: New Front Wipers

I can agree with the effectiveness of GTech G1. My Polo glass is also coated with it. Not cheap, but it is long lasting. I've heard dodojuice supernatural glass sealant is better, also with Gtechniq I always buy the bigger set at £40 I've coated about 8 cars now with it with a little bit left, main...

Re: Audi TT ronal alloys

Are the Ronal wheels the six spoke design that was fitted to the mk1 Audi TT? If so, then the bolt pattern for the mk1 Audi TT is 5x100, so should have the same bolt pattern as the 6r/6c Polo. Mk2 and 3 TT''s had a 5x112 bolt pattern. I think Ronals are 17" diameter and the other specs for this whe...

Hope this helps
thanks, I was led to believe they were 5x100 by the seller but I'll do a bit more searching for info.
