VW service and maintenance manuals

DIY Volkswagen Polo repair and maintenance

Engine

  • AW saloons cooling system suffers from the radiator deformation. This happens due to rocks coming through large cells of a heat exchanger decorative grille. You can eliminate this problem in your garage installing a guard cover. We also recommend you washing the radiator every 60,000 kilometres. Do it yourself with the help of an illustrated PDF manual on VW Polo repair.
  • If the ambient temperature is low, the frozen fuel in the line makes it difficult to start the diesel engine. We advise to store a vehicle in the heated parking lot. If you can’t do that, you may install an engine preheater.

Electrics

  • The power windows failure is one of the most common problems. In this case, it won’t be difficult to do Volkswagen Polo repair and maintenance yourself – all you need is to replace some elements of the mechanism. However, if the boot lid, fuel tank door or car doors fail to open and close, you have to check whether the central locking system properly works.
  • Many electric power steering systems malfunction, thus decreasing vehicle stability. To remove the defect, try to update firmware. You can download firmware update for free; it should be installed at the authorized service stations.

Transmission

  • Knocking of a plastic manual transmission mount is typical of 6N saloons. You can eliminate this problem by installing a new component made of more durable plastic. Video tutorial on DIY Volkswagen Polo repair and maintenance will help you with that.

Body

  • Peeling paintwork definitely mars the vehicle’s exterior. The most vulnerable parts are the roof over the windscreen and the joints between the front fenders, sills and doors.
  • Windscreen wipers often fail due to the wiper linkage oxidation. Therefore, this unit requires regular maintenance. It is essential to check and regularly replace windscreen wiper blades. Detailed step-by-step guide on Volkswagen Polo repair and operation will significantly speed up this process.

Interior

  • Mid-quality sound insulation is determined by the affordability of this vehicle. Therefore, you may hear noise in the interior. Foreign sounds from under the bonnet can come of a loose engine plastic protection cover and improperly fixed fuel pipes. With our tips, you will be able to get rid of noise by replacing the fasteners and installing soundproofing material.
  • Door seals dry up fast and let the dirt get into the car interior. Their regular cleaning and treating with silicone grease is essential. Moreover, you can always replace these elements following a step-by-step video tutorial on Volkswagen Polo repair.
