Instead I simply cut the wire and insulated both ends using heatshrink. :cry: (excuses, excuses... I didn...

Re: Polo 6R Boot 'false' Floor Panel

No longer required, as I managed to locate all that I needed from a very helpful online breakers. For those in a similar position, having the base S model with no 'false floor' it might be worth noting that (at least on my 2011 example) there were threads present in the existing metalwork to accept ...

Retrofitting a coolant temperature gauge: 6R 1.2 12v CGP

Has anyone yet retrofitted a simple coolant temperature gauge to their 1.2 Polo?? I'm in the enviable :roll: position of using a base '60 S' 6R running the 1.2 12v (CGP) engine.
