Re: Dashboard swap

I've done a full 6n2 swap to my 6n, check out my topic. The dash and AC components are a straight fit. If you transplant the 6n2 AC module and heatercore you can use the oem 6n2 controls as well I guess. The only (minor) problem I encountered was the screws on the side of the dash do not match the 6...

Re: water pump!!!

Do a youtube search. I suppose somebody has posted a vid for this particular car. Visual reference can be the key element in this. I must say, if you understand how an engine works it should be pretty much the same as any other car. A 16v is a bit more work than a 8v tho. To get to the bolts, you ne...

Re: Central locking problem!

Do you hear the pump working when opening/closing the car? Difference between remote and key?

Re: Bought yesterday, it´s leeking..

My guess for the dark oil leak in the middle is crankcase breather valve. The other two I'm guessing something related to coolant? It's difficult to diagnose from a distance with the amount of information you have given. Clean the engine well and follow from bottom up where the leak is coming from, ...

Re: 1988 1.4cl auto keeps cutting out while driving

Temperature = faulty thermostat.
Power loss = EGR (lines or valve) and crankcase breather (lines or valve) can be clogged. Did you clean these out as well? These are the first issues I can think of because they are very common. It can also be due to a dirty fuel filter or coil/sparkplugs for example.

Re: Central locking not working, windows go down when i try to lock it.

The central locking system is pneumatic. If there's a leak in one of the lines or connectors, this might be the reason it's not working properly. A few questions... - Do you hear the sound of air escaping when the central locking motor is running? Around the locks, down the A-pillars (and B-pillars ...

Re: air bag light on

If there has been an interruption in the airbag system, even for one millisecond, it will always throw a fault code. The only way to get rid of the airbag light is to clear the airbag fault from the ecu. You can only do this with an obd scantool, but only if the 'clear fault' option is available on ...

Re: 6N2 1.8 16valve PL engine swap?

That's right Alex. The mounts are all different, so you would need the MK2 subframe as well. I found this on the internet, might be interesting to read :mrgreen:

Re: Cold starting problem

the faulty PCV valve idea is interesting - Im going to look into that - and will report back. I don't think its the valves as it runs really sweetly when its up to speed..? Is it easy to diagnose / test the PCV valve? Jonathan This may help. Search in file for Crankcase Breather or Diaphragm valve....

Re: Oil leak - HELP

It's difficult to see from the pictures, but my first guess would be the valve cover gasket. Have you removed the black plastic engine cover and inspected the engine further? You could clean the engine up and after a few kilometers check if you can find the source by following the leak's path upwards.

You didn't mention which type of engine you've got. Mostly on the left side of the engine on the intake manifold. Google it and you'll see where :mrgreen:

Re: Having trouble.

Try plugging an obd reader onto the car. There may be some fault codes stored in the ECU which might point you in the right direction.

Re: Rough idle on Polo 1.4 Match 6N2 2001

Most common rough idle problem for these vehicles is a clogged crankcase breather hose, PCV valve and/or EGR. The breather hose is on the left side of the air filter and goes down to the PCV (positive crankcase ventilation) valve on the back of the engine. The EGR is located on the right front side ...
