Re: Bought a Polo 04 1.4 fsi, DIY fixer upper or not?

The 1.4FSI will have rear discs, which are easier to work on, though still cause issues, maybe add external return springs to keep things working. The engine has a belt driven camshaft so needs a new belt ideally every 4th year due to possible/probably idler/tensioner/roller failure - wrong it has a...

Re: Dim Airbag Light

Most if not all problems like this being blamed on the instrument cluster/pod will be poor/bad connections caused by either corroded or loose plug-socket pins, or more likely by "dry joints" due to the solder cracking. If you are happy enough to work on a removed instrument cluster/pod, then I'd thi...

Time to get creative and work out what the problem is before fitting these lights to your car!

Re: I have GTI without air conditioner so i will retrofit one

Hello and welcome to this forum!

A very big project, but if you have another car to use while you are doing this, why not - good luck!

Re: What does this pipe do on my air filter box

I'm not trying to knock/shame you, but what do you expect to be the overall outcome of dumping the original air filter box other than increased induction noise and maybe less power due to the change or due to the air intake now gulping in warm/hot air. A killer posting maybe, but if you don't make t...

Re: Anyone had forced GPF regens yet?

I'd ignore the thoughts about external extra air borne particles from more wood burning fires being used right now. - that would just be "fuel" for your incompetent VW garage workshop!

Re: Rear window wash

If possible it would be good to be able to run a full "all modules" scan on that car using either the proper VW scan kit or VCDS. So, the rear wiper works as normal, ie you press down the stalk and the rear wiper gives a single wipe every few minutes, but when you press the talk further down and hol...

Re: General wash and wipe issues

First, I'm sure that there is a washer repair kit that covers that elbow etc, a bit annoying that it was not the pump/tank seal though! The original factory fit wipers on these 9N Polo were actually Bosch and while not perfect, I always either found NOS genuine VW ones online at a good price or just...

Re: Rear washer hath died. RIP. Need help again.

Some of the known leak/pipe off sites are, at the joint round about the ABS valve block under the bonnet, and possibly over the LHS rear wheel arch, then obviously in the rubber protector at the hinge area, after that where the fluid feeds into the base of the wiper motor base where it uses an inner...

Re: Polo GTI no boost @ from 1.5k - 4k rpm

Sounds like a 1.4 Twincharger, maybe try another forum, like www.seatcupra.net or www.briskoda.net as both these forums have people in them that know about these engines. The section that you need to look in on seatcupra.net is Ibiza (2009 - 2017) and in briskoda.net Fabia of the same age = https://...

Re: Polo trendline 1.4 Auto leak

So, does that mean the high pressure system inside the mechatronics unit is leaking out or gearbox fluid leaking out of the box of cogs? Edit:- I think, but I could be wrong, lifting off the mechatronics unit needs some guide tools in first to avoid total destruction, as well as getting things into ...

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...
