Re: Aftermarket Stereo

I think it would be beneficial to pop a photo up - also showing what wire on the quadlock the blue wire goes through too aswell and ill check what it does :)

Re: Aftermarket Stereo

Presume this is a blue wire on the car side of the loom rather than the radio?

Re: Fault codes (P118D) - possible o2 sensor

I would agree with RUM. You need to scan that with either VCDS or a VW specific scanner

Sounds like a coilpack failure

Re: Aftermarket Stereo

Which blue wire have you used? Normally, you have to tag the ignition live onto the back of the cigarette lighter or something else fed from the ignition.

Re: Exhaust layout

The GTI doesn’t have that. Some of the 6N2s do (the 100bhp does) but not the GTI model

Re: Drivers Window dropping overnight

Sounds like the door lock is faulty. There’s a microswitch inside that triggers the windows open and close on holding the key open or closed

Re: Polo 2000 1.0 replacing the starter motor

I’ve normally done it from the bottom to avoid removing the inlet manifold but whatever you find easier

The hardest part is undoing the terminals

Re: Front Bumper repair help

Looks like it’s all out of alignment

Depending on how you want to fix it really it’s a new headlight and a new bumper

Re: 9N TDI box into a 6N2

What gearbox code is the 9N3? Pretty sure they have some internal differences

Re: There's probably ?

I’m not sure what you are asking here?

Have you got the handle off the car and you are trying to remove the barrel from it?

Re: Idle revs question

Oh yes, of course it has BMT.

Maybe someone else with a 1.2 TSI can confirm the rev behaviour

Re: Idle revs question

600 is quite a low idle. If it’s under warranty I’d take it in to get it checked over

Re: Interior Lights Not Working

Is yours a 9N or a 6N2 - theres a cross over on the 2002 model and it could be either (round headlights or rectangular)

Re: Idle revs question

Does also depend how warm the engine is

Have you tried it when it’s at full temp?
