Re: Jeremy Clarkson and Binky Felstead plus GTI.

What - you'll get reported for writing things like that!
They did seem to be able to resist rusting better than their peers though - why not get an estate instead - oh no, see what you made me write, I'll get reported as well!

Re: Oil Leaks from Oil Separator

Bother Bother Bother!!! Seeing that picture still does not bring back any memories of how I removed that pipe - but it should show you how to remove it, so why not remove it, fit it to your car and use a short length of plastic or copper or steel or aluminium alloy pipe to hold the 2 parts of the pi...

Re: Dry Dipstick - How much Oil do you get through?

Willni, I'd keep an eye on that Yuasa battery - I'm sure that I've read on another motoring forum that they are prone to early failure - which is not what I would have expected from a hopefully quality battery supplier. I agree about VW Group car batteries fitted to cars at factory, I replaced my 20...

Re: Main beam headlight issue

If it counts, I completely agree with Alex here, with my wife's old 2002 9N Polo typically when driving locally in the dark and on still driving slowly enough to be using dipped beam, when approaching a bend, I used to pull up that stalk to bring on the main beam using the flasher function instead o...

Re: Oil Leaks from Oil Separator

Sorry but I don't remember exactly how I removed that pipe, the cut out at the side must be there for some reason though - I did not buy any new seals etc for that pipe, it was just removed, oil separator replaced, and that pipe refitted. The part that looks like a hockey puck, I did remove that cov...

Re: Power steering problems

That is the power steering fluid reservoir cap, it is green in colour. The level should never ever change unless there is a system leak, hopefully via a rusted steel pipe section. There is a dipstick built into the cap, the level should be high enough to wet the bottom of the button end of the dipst...

Re: Power steering problems

Okay, your 6R Polo will have electro hydraulic power steering system, that system makes big demands of the battery, so if you start demanding a lot of effort from it just after a cold engine start, especially in winter time, when a cold and old battery has just taken some punishment from starting a ...

Re: Does the data plug (connect) come as standard on SE?

My wife's August 2015 6C Polo survived for almost 3 years before being returned from its year 3 service complete with a box placed on the passenger's seat - should really ebay it, people will buy anything from ebay?

Re: Polo GTI security systems (THUMPS UP)

I had a completely normal city driving distance to him. He smashed he brakes in order to do the left turn as if he forgot that he had to turn. I couldn't possibly react in time at 50 km/h. Calling me a bad driver without being a part of the situation is tasteless. I don't know about Denmark, but in...

Hi Marko

Did you have any issues with the 288mm front brake discs fitting? I’ve ordered myself some and the garage I took it to fit them said they were too small?

Thanks in advance
Did you get anywhere with this job? Where did you buy the 288mm diameter vented discs from?

Re: Oil Leaks from Oil Separator

Sorry for missing your previous posting. Anyway, Febi seems to be an acceptable brand for parts, so you have found that the electrical connector is only for a heater - which is used to prevent freezing I think. That is almost a nuisance as I had considered that there was a flap motor in there to con...

Re: Polo brakes

I seem to remember thinking that the front brakes on my wife’s 2002 9N Polo, when it was new, were vicious when compared with her previous cars, but I soon got used to them and remembered to stamp on the brakes on my car, while being light footed with her Polo, that car did have”enhanced braking dis...

Re: Highline badge

The way that VW Group normally works for is, anything that is available or fitted to any car worldwide, will be available for you to order through your local VW Group dealer's parts department - this is certainly the way it works in UK when parts are requested from VW Germany. It would help you if y...

Re: Dry Dipstick - How much Oil do you get through?

Excellent, I’m glad a very small attempt at humour does not cause offence! Edit:- I am still struggling to understand why that battery got upset/finished off by that possibly first long run. Nine years old yes, but I would have thought that it’s previous use would have reduced its effective capacity...
