Re: Polo trendline 1.4 Auto leak

No offence intended to others reading this, but typically this forum is quite "light" on this sort of issue, just the way it is. So, from looking at your pictures, it looks like there is some sort of aperture round about where the fluid is leaking out of, so that might just mean that if and when flu...

Re: Air Con Issues

If you have done your homework, ie checked if there is any other reports of this sort of thing, you would normally find that fan speed switch positions 1 maybe and 2 and maybe and 3 tend to stop working as the resistor sections burn out, and you are left at the end with only speed 4, ie full speed w...

Re: Driver's side rear drum binding only

That is a nuisance as the lip, well at least the outer lip is normally 80% build up of corrosion that can be chipped off, wire brushed off, or if you want taken off using an angle grinder - I'd always start with chipping or powered wire brush, and that lip usually only causes issues when taking the ...

Re: LONG SHOT!!

OP, if you end up having trouble using the "ifinterface ---" parts site, as I now do when using MS devices, then try using IOS devices as it works okay on them.

Re: Front o/s brake binding not excessive

I'd hope that if you still find the need to get other pads, after trying to sort out the ones currently fitted, that getting a set of Pagid ones from even ECP would be a lot cheaper than VW's ones, and still work okay in these callipers. These originally Lucas branded callipers from the Girling Luca...

Re: Driver's side rear drum binding only

Yes when the equaliser yoke ends up like that things are not right!

Did you remove the entire brake shoe assemblies and clean them up checking for seizure at the levers etc, or just fit new drums?

Why did you need to replace the drums in the first place?

Re: Airbox rubber grommets

Thanks RUM4MO that's the ones. Wow, £5.14 each, £7.95 if ordered from an unscrupulous seller on EBay including postage. I'll pick up a couple from the dealer (no doubt they will have order) as I still need to get my spare key programmed to the car while still under warranty Veteran, a little red gr...

Re: Airbox rubber grommets

Maybe there has been a move away from these "top side" mounted oil filters that used a simple element and needed a few O-rings to get changed at the same time. They were convenient and seemed a bit better in terms of reducing waste materials, but too often it seems people ignored or forgot or could ...

Re: Help! Rear wheel humming noise. Polo GTi

The use of copper grease used to be considered okay, but now it has been displaced by, or replaced by ceramic compounds for a few reasons. Most brake pads, if they confirm completely with the original VW Group, come with anti squeal coating/padding fitted to them, so no separate shims/tapered shims,...

Re: Airbox rubber grommets

I'd think that the easiest and cheapest place will be a VW dealership's parts department, from looking on line it seems that the mainland Europe price is roughly 1.68Euro so I'd guess about £2 each.

Re: Thinking of buying winter tyres?

Ha! Now to find a way to keep/get them cleaned - I prefer fewer wheel spokes for winter wheels, but I seemed to have failed when I bought winter wheels for my wife's 2015 6C Polo! So it is now, clean as much as I can reach, then move the car forward half a wheel rotation and clean the areas previous...

Grommet 07C 133 588 P - 4off. Aye, some sort of funny ideas must have been going around when someone came up with that design, though to be fair, the 2002>2006 Polos ect did have the screws on the underside, changing to the less complicated rectangular air box with exposed fixing screws did not last...

Re: Front o/s brake binding not excessive

I'd think that if indeed the backing metalwork of the new pads was slightly over sized for these refurbished or aftermarket callipers - or more likely over sized for the built in calliper carrier which might have reduced to size due to corrosion build up, then even after some time they will still be...
