The body shop suggested that the bonnet might have bended slightly due to the use of the gas strut.
I was somewhat lucky to have it replaced after the accident, it was indeed damaged by the front collision.
So have a look at whether this also the case for your polo. And if so, try to correct the issue before the damage gets any worse.
I enjoyed mine a lot, but perhaps it's better not to have it... I'm a bit in doubt whether I'll place it back.
Hi Michel,

I had installed a 350N gas strut for lifting the bonnet of my Polo. It would make a fairly loud creaking sound from near the hinge when I pulled the bonnet down. Also, it stopped "popping up" when I would pull the release lever. The VW technicians suggested that I put in another one on the other side to balance the load. So I bought another 350N strut and installed it on the other side. Needless to say, 700N is too much for a poor Polo, and it became pretty difficult to close the bonnet. And just like your car, the bonnet on mine started bending too. I ended up removing both, and going back to the stock setup.

But I really wanted that mod, so I then went ahead and purchased 2 struts of 150N each. I will install them shortly. I hope that I will not face any of the previous problems with 300N of balanced force. I think the two main problems are these:
  1. The angle of the strut is too low (it is horizontal in the closed position), and the strut is too long. If you look at OEM setups (e.g. Jetta), they have a short strut mounted almost vertically.
  2. The engine bay of the Polo doesn't have proper mounts for the struts, because of which the load gets transmitted to the bonnet and fender, leading to their deformation.

A question to whom it could concern. I'm playing around a bit with the GRA_High emulator. I bought one from RoFireman from the Drive2.ru forum.
The software was pre-loaded and worked well in Russia. It doesn't work on my car though, I guess since I got a diesel. Most of the Russian Polo 6Rs are a 1.4 MPI or 1.6MPI (petrol) engine.

Now it's connected to the instrument CAN network and a +15 power supply.

Does anyone maybe know the correct can message for GRA_High on a TDI engine? Thanks 8)

I have gathered this info about GRA HIGH, I would not have expected there would be any difference between diesel or petrol.
Most likely not properly implemented by your Russian friends.

288 [8] 8F 6F 20 04 00 53 FE 00 //still
288 [8] 8F 8D 30 04 00 5A 68 00 //driving

288 Len:8 Data: 8F 9D 70 00 1E 5F 94 00

70 = 0111 0000 = CruiseControl ON ;

00 = GRA HIGH does not used by Engine ,

1E = 30dec - speed set in CC


Have you ever logged the output of your engine ecu?

New mod!

867 853 687 VW Polo type 86c logo from a 1989 VW Polo, my birth year :)
Not sure yet where to put it though... left middle or right side of the bootlid.

Yes, sounds logical.
Original place for the 6R is on the left. It has the engine type on the right.
Original place for the 86c is on the right. It has Volkswagen written on the left.
VW Käfer (New Beetle) sometimes has Käfer written in the middle with no further mentioning of engine type.

I'm not planning on writing the engine type (humble 1.2 TDI) on the rear. Perhaps 1200 written in 1950-1970 beetle font would be nice :mrgreen:

Hi, Iichel, these 6C buttons will work for 6R? Or need any modification?
