  2. I am trying to find a good free VIN Decoder without much success. One of them even told me the car was a Golf. Is there someone out there who knows of a good one and maybe even run my vin number, WVWZZZAWZLU050278, through it. 🙂 Thanks
  3. The wireless carplay in our Polo is very convenient, except that when my wife and I both get in the car, we don’t seem to be able to control which phone connects to CarPlay. How do we control who connects, or swap from one to the other? Currently we are switching off Bluetooth on one phone before starting the engine
  4. Last week
  5. The other thing you you must bear in mind is that with the bigger wheel you may be increasing the outside diameter of the Tyre/Wheel and that will distort your speedo reading 🙂
  6. My 2020 GTi came with wind deflectors around the side windows front and rear. I don't like them and I have tried to get the off but they don't seem to come off easily. How on earth do they come off, I don't want to damage anything.
  7. Hi the name is Andy and I am new to this forum. Not new to VW however, I have had Golfs and an Eos before having a string of four Mercedes. I have just swapped my 2017 C Class for a 2020 Polo GTi Plus. Why ? I have had enough of Mercedes size bills. My last service on the MB was over £1,000. The latest issue was a Nox sensor, also around the £1,000, it also needed a new set of tyres all round so good bye another £800 or so 😒 The Polo is a very different car but after a couple of weeks with it I am loving it. 🙂
  8. M600 GTD private plate for sale. £300 Message for details. Thanks
  9. Hi Recently my average mpg readout on the digital dash has been fluctuating a lot. It's the average one with a crossed out circle symbol, not the instantaneous one. It used to take a very long time to change as it was averaged over a 600 mike trip, might go up 2mpg on a long trip for example. But recently it jumped up from 46 to 50 on a 5 mike trip, then down to 24. Now it reads about 21 but it seems to change randomly, and far faster than it should. No warning lights, 2011 model...any ideas?
  10. Hi guys. As i do not know much about turbo diesels i thought id ask. I had my 2008 1.9tdi stage one tuned. Since the tune i notice a whistling sound when i accelerate through the gears. I read online this could be the turbo spooling up more pressure due to the tune. Or could it be the accuator itself. Is this whistling normal after a stage 1 tune? Its running 160bhp and 325lb of torque off this tune. I could not hear this prior to the tune 3mths ago but have since. It could be a biproduct of the tune but thought id ask as know very little about turbo cars in general. Thanks. Chris.

  12. I have a 2016 VOLKSWAGEN SHARAN MK2 (7N) SE TDI BLUEMOTION TECHNOLOGY DSG It seem to be stuck in less than 2000rpm. On the motor way it doesn't go beyond 30miles even with more stepping on the gas pedal. Revs are high at but speed stays the same or slower on a hill. What could be the problem? No engine lights no codes showing yet
  13. Hi all, can anyone tell me the size of the torx for the front strut pinch bolt please, mine are rounded off from previous owner. Thankyou.
  14. I’ve recently bought this polo after 4 Honda jazz’s the issue I’ve got is at a junction there is a lag then a judder before the car moves off and then it’s no problem it behaves until the next junction it has DSG gearbox any advice??
  15. Hello all, just changed the anti roll bar bushes, swapped to poly, I was led to believe only 1 nut was flanged on each bracket, turns out both nuts on each bracket are flanged, bit of a pig of a job room wise.
  16. Changed abs sensors and cleaned codes. Drive and hit breaks and lights up on dash flashing and abs. Put back on diagnostic machine still saying left rear abs. Plus breaks at front sound like they scraping. Can anybody assist. Me please
  17. Hi all new here, just seeing how many passats came with optional built in child seats in base of rear seats
  18. Wipers have lost conecection apprantly the master wiper motor can't talk to the other. Wipers work don't work on there own from intermittent to fast slow etc. Had it plugged in hope a second hand set of motors fix the issue only fitted on mine a 2004 sport blinking marvless.
  19. Hi I have recently bought a 2017 touran 1.5 petrol dsg. It came from a VW dealer and is under extended warranty. It has recently come up with the service required light on the dash. VW UK say it should have been serviced but dealer are saying its on a 24 month interval. Last time it was serviced it wasn't serviced by vw and when I rang the garage who serviced it they said its due now. Dealer are adamant that its 24 months and refusing to service it, instead they are saying they will turn off the service light... Can they just say its on a 24 month plan even though it hasn't had the necessary service previously. When I had a passat you had to pay forca major service to qualify for the 24 month interval. I personally think it's the dealer talking nonsense to avoid servicing the car, or am I missing something? Thanks in advance James
  20. My first thought was not reindexing the handbrake motors with the correct scantool application. However, when you said you replaced the battery then that made more sense as to why the system was playing up
  21. Sounds like one of the vent flaps is stuck, may have to look under the dash to see if a linkage has dropped off or is seized
  22. Hi Rob.....welcome to the Club Good luck with the Polo I think you should have fun repairing it, nothing too complex on the older ones luckily. Feel free to dive into helping out with any posts that you feel comfortable answering Good to have you onboard!
  23. Hi All, Looking for a set of 4 or 5 wheel centres for a 2004 1.4 Tdi 9n on Melbourne alloys. I've added a picture off a well know selling site as an example. Used is fine as long as they're in fair condition, not badly scratched or overly faded. Thanks for looking. Regards Rob
  24. Hi all, Rob here, new member. I've just bought my son a nice little Polo to learn to drive in and as you'd expect with a 2004 car, it needs a bit of 'TLC'. One of the jobs I want to do is refurb the wheels as the previous owners have neglected the old girl a bit. Finding new sticky backed VW logos to replace the very tatty, faded ones is proving next to impossible. The 90mm ones I bought off fleabay are just a couple of mil too small and not quite convex enough. So, If any one has a set in fair condition, I be happy to buy them if available. I've added a picture of one off fleabay for info, mine are much, much worse! Hoping some one on this excellent site can help, Regards Rob
  25. A short term fix would be to solder some wires from the good contact areas to bypass the corrosion, a bit of a bodge but if it works for the short term until you can find some replacements
  26. A few on here for sale https://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=p2334524.m570.l1313&_nkw=vw+sharan+owners+handbook&_sacat=131090&LH_TitleDesc=0&_odkw=vw+sharan+workshop+manual&_osacat=131090
