1.4 AFH engine - conrod bolts?

Post by calvinw1 » Thu Jul 07, 2016 8:58 am

Hello, having a bit of a nightmare trying to find replacement conrod bolts for the 14 16v AFH engine. Does anyone know if there are any ARP ones available / suitable, or if any other VAG engines use the same?

Strangely they're not available direct from VW. Any help appreciated.

Thanks

Presumably its number 15?

Need to know what con rod you use though, or measure the existing bolts as there are three different sizes

And when/where did VW tell you they arent available!?

Thanks a lot! Yes it is number 15 that I'm after.... How strange. I rang my local parts yesterday who was unable to see them... I will forward this topic over. :D

They were looking at a '98 Polo which is why they weren't showing - but did on a '95.... Odd, as the car this engine came out of was a 1998 model.

Anyway, £9 odd each! Going to try TPS.

I looked at a 98 polo lol. I think they need to update their software!
