Hi, does it only pressurise when its hot? have you tried running it with the cap off from cold, if there are bubbles coming out constantly this would suggest a headgasket issue.

Does the temperature gauge show it over heating?

Does the fan come on?

Im no fox expert but would just be a few things to check

Same 1.4 engine as a polo 9n.

Not the head gasket.

That's my opinion.
