Hi....welcome to the Forum

Servicing a 1.2 Polo should be easy enough if you follow some guidance (YouTube is a semi-reliable source of information) and some tasks are very simple.

Basic hand tools (spanners, sockets, etc) and some garage equipment (trolley jack, axle stands, oil drain tray) are always handy to have around and invaluable in working on cars.
Other tools such as oil filter wrench, torque wrench, hydrometer to check coolant strength, etc are also handy to have in your toolbox.

Most items are available in Halfords at reasonable cost and quite good quality as well.

Let us know how you get on with it all
