Re: ABS light on: fault 01276 ABS Hydraulic Pump

I know it's a long shot, but I got the same fault after changing the clutch. The problem was really simple: A fuse in the little box on the + side of the battery was missing. My mechanic had to remove the battery, and somehow managed to loose one of the two fuses to the ABS pump..

Re: 1.4 8v gearbox on 1.6 8v?

Wow.. That was a suprise. I've read up on the VW Polo 6n1 and from what I've found ut, they should be the same (085 gearbox) with different ratios. Are we talking totally different or just minor things?

Re: 1.4 8v gearbox on 1.6 8v?

I have the same question, but the other way around.. :) Got an 1,4 8V with a dodgy gearbox, and I've have my hands on a gearbox from a 1997 1,6 8V.

I would guess there are some differences with the gearing, but I would mind getting a little bit lower revs in 5th gear / 110 kph.

Retrofit central locks on my 1998 Polo

Hi! First time here! Just bought a 1998 VW Polo 6N to be used as a daily driver. Rustfree with only 73.000km on the odometer, owned by a eldery woman since new. The problem is, she ordered without any options as far as I can see.. So it lacks central locking. Do anyone here know of a cheap central l...
