1985 Volkswagen Quantum - Answered Questions & Fixed issues

I wouldn't replace this bushing unless it's obviously worn out. I know of this recommended method when a puller is not available, pack the bearing bore with grease and use a socket and extension or similar rod that fits snug as possible in the bearing bore and hit this tool with a hammer as to use a hydraulic effect. the pressure of the grease will push the bearing out. This method is used on, rear wheel driven, flywheel bushing removal. Good luck!

You have air in the clutch slave cylinder . As old as it is I suspect you now have a bad master cylinder.

Why? Because over-stroking the pedal when low on fluid tends to **** in all the dirt that accumulates in the bottom of the system and damages the hardened old seals.

The clutch slave cylinder is on top of the bell housing and it has a 7mm across it's flats, bleed nipple.

This is a two man job without a pressure bleeder. Have someone press clutch down and you open slave bleeder, close bleeder and lift up pedal slowly.

Repeat, topping of the fluid reservoir, until firm pedal.

The brake reservoir also supplies fluid to the clutch. If the fluid gets low or clutch leaks, the reservoir is so designed to still allow fluid for the brake system.

If your car will turn over but then cut off, it's probably a blown fuse to the fuel pump or a bad fuel pump, or more remotely a poor connection between the fuse and the fuse clips, or a leak in the fuel line.

I bought a 2000 polo 1.4 yesterday after having an MOT. The warning lamp came on today but the car is running fine. Whether its the Lambda sensor or just the light itself is a common fault, I think garages turn off the lights to get it through the MOT then they come on again in a day or two!

Check and see if there are different color wires going into the speakers.I notice the wires themselves are different colors. One of my wires is a copper color and the other one is a metal or grey color.I am talking the wire itself not the coating.

Something is very sticky. See if you can lubricate the lock mechanism with WD40 to free it up.

The O2 sensor heater is an integral part of the sensor - so you must have had the complete O2 sensor replaced. I am wondering if this was the result of a code read or a code read and some further investigation?

There is a variety of fault codes indicating a possible fault with the O2 heater circuit but such descriptions as heater circuit high, low, open or shorted can equally apply to the wiring, connections or even the computer.

I wonder have you erased the fault code and road tested?

Wiring diagrams are arranged by system, not location within the vehicle. See this post on how to get the diagram you need.
