My A/C pump doesn't want to engage, if you switch on you can hear a kick but it does not come on. If you put power direct from the battery it kicks in and blows cold air. Can I drive with direct connection?

HI I have a Polo 1.4 PD TDI, the car has a leaky rear caliper passenger side. Seems to be where the handbrake cable goes in the back of the caliper. I had a look and couldn't see any brake fluid on disc, just on back of caliper. Will I need to change the complete unit or is there a seal somewhere that can be replaced? Your help and advice would be most welcome.

Hi, my 2004 VW Polo drives a distance and then suddenly loses power and cuts out. I have changed the coil and plug cables and the fuel pump and serviced the car yet it`s doing the same thing. No problem is picked up on the diagnostics and no one seems to know what the problem is. I don`t know what else to do?

How to remove the drive of the lock of the hatch of a gasoline tank of a polo heth 2005-2009 it is established in a niche on the right in a luggage carrier, and it is attached by which screw of a head it isn't visible. I removed plastic slips on a back right rack, but it didn't help. :( If to disassemble the hatch of a gasoline tank having taken out from it a plastic slip that can, and I will see something, but really it is a task for the gynecologist? And I am simply Russian engineer. Thanks to all who responded.

Another problem I have is my car started pulling to the left when I was driving. So got the tracking done and they said there was nothing wrong with the tracking. So we swapped the front wheels with the back. So it no longer pulled to the left when driving only when reversing. So we swapped the right and left back wheels around but it seems to still pull to the left when reversing. Do you recogn I need to change my wheel as it might not be alighed with the bent properly or could it be another problem?

Hi everyone. I have a polo Twist 1.2 and it has been a nightmare since day one. My current problems are my alarm systemsome times dont work. At first I started using the button on my keys to lock and unlock my car but it didnt always work so I started to use my keys. Whilst using my keys I unlock my car go for a drive and as soon as I park up and try to lock my car the alarm system doesn't come on. This has happen about 2-3 with the automatic button my keys and twice with manually opening with the keys. The next day it seems to come back on and I am not sure how or why. I have used my spare keys as well as reopened the car, reclosed all the door, started the engine and yet nothing. any ideas?

My VW Polo 6 sedan doesn't want to idle. I stopped at the traffic lights and when I wanted to drive off I realised the car is not idling. I then tried to turn the ignition on and it just cranks but it doesn't want to idle. I suspect the fuse and I opened the fuse box only to realise that there are no markings or layout info. I would appreciate if someone can tell me what seems to be the problem here?

Hi. I`ve got a VW Polo 1.6 classic 2002 model. The engine has been completely overhauled, block is done, new pistons, rings, oil pump, water pump etc put in. When driving, after 10-15 km, the oil light comes on. Switch the car off while driving and back on after 2 min and the light is gone/ After 10-15 km again the same story. Any idea where to check? I changed my oil filter, new oil etc but nothing helps. Any help will do and accepted, thanks.
