    How to deal with pirates via PM

    Polo 6R 1.6 TDI - crank but no fire - P006C

    So there is my distaster-Polo. It had a fuel leak at one of the injectors, the return line was damaged. Poor idle, but no MIL. Repaired the return line with new O-ring and clip. Now the engine will not start. Starter goes round, engine goes round but will not jump to life. New battery was...

    I bought a new car!

    And what a disappointment it's been so far... I was a bit tired of having a 3-cylinder diesel with MT. I love the car to death but it's growing on me. So, step up. Polo 6R 1.2 TDI to Polo 6R 1.6 TDI DSG7. Transfer all the mods and profit. Things were looking good! Low mileage (170.000km /...

    Why do people do this?

    Let's imagine a bloke. This bloke is from the UK and let's call him a typical British name, for the sake of his privacy. Since Will is his actual name, we'll use that. Will owns a VW Polo and is familiar with VCDS. So far I like Will a lot, but things will take a drastic turn for the worse...

    Retrofitted direct TPMS to Polo 6R

    Just a retrofit update: TPMS direct (HEX 65) fitted on a Polo 6R. Needed is quite a recent PQ25 BCM (7E0 937 090B or higher) due to address 65 in the gateway. I'm not the first one to discover it, nor the first one to retrofit it, but I guess it wouldn't hurt to show it here, on the home of VAG...

    Polo 6R - power steering not working - training them arms
