  1. Seeking 1.4 16v petrol engine

    oil pump failure?
  2. New to the family

    I'm not 100% on that one to be honest. All the guides I'd found did say to run it, so I did and didn't have any problems. Only speaking from my own experience really. As for removing it, remember it being as simple as removing the airbox and then maybe 3 or 4 torx bolts on the EGR. Took around 30 mins in total I think!
  3. Good point. They're coming off anyway to remove the box!
  4. New to the family

    Are you handy with some tools? It's quite a simple job to do yourself really. Isn't that involved. Only downside is you need to run adaptation using vcds afterwards, but still cheaper by a considerable amount...
  5. AFH Engine Mounts

    Yep, I'm not even bothering!
  6. New to the family

    I think I paid £20 for one when I had my 1.0, 30 minutes or so to change. They're having your pants down tbh. Even a new one from Euro is £120. Where abouts in the country are you?
  7. AFH Engine Mounts

    Maybe best placed on the polo forum but in all honesty when I've used either of the two main ones the responses were less than helpful. Is anyone aware of a company making uprated engine mounts?
  8. Soft Blue 1.7 SDI

    I'll post some pictures later. But so far gone is: Front Bumper Wings ECU / Loom / Key Headlights Wing mirrors Everything else is currently still available. This needs to be gone by midnight Wednesday at the latest. Happy to take bits off and keep them for a short amount of time. And also happy to post a lot of bits.
  9. Soft Blue 1.7 SDI

    Yes gearbox all good. I have no idea how much those bits would be worth to be honest, drop me a PM
  10. Soft Blue 1.7 SDI

    Yes. To be honest it's a shame but the state of some of the bits just meant it was truly an uneconomical repair. So you want: ECU Loom ECU Transponder box 1x Key? As for the springs, they're not great to be honest. Plus it makes my life easier if it remains a rolling shell. The bit on the caliper is there I think.
  11. Help arosa sdi (wheel bearing) noise

    If you want a box then drop me a message before the end of Tuesday or its potentially gone.
  12. Lupo 20v Mid Engined RWD Build

    If only a none GTI could have been used. I really don't understand how people are so happy just wasting perfectly good cars.
  13. Yeah I'd probably be hesitant if it was in regular use, but the car rarely covers more than 500 miles in a year!
  14. Tensioner was £30 inc. from ECP, for that much it made sense to just change the whole thing.
  15. I have a CWX. Last known condition was working fine. £50 collected from Wigan.
