I have not worked on a Polo before but almost all VW have a wedge that adjust the back brakes all you have to do is remove one of the lug nuts and place a flat screw drive in the hole a push the wedge up./ I believe to spring and wedge toward the front of the car, Put your lug hole at 3 o'clock and you sould feel the spring if not put it at 9 o'clock.
Hope it helps, remember do one side at a time, the other side is a good refirence.

My V.W Bora is making a grinding noise when i change gears or hit the excelerator, could it be the brake shoes as i was told that my back brake shoes need replacing


When brakes approach the point where they need quick replacement you will hear a high-pitched squealing noise whenever you apply the brakes. This is caused by "wear sensor" material in the pads/shoes that's designed to get your attention. Your problem is more likely either clutch or transmission related.

I need to replace the rear brake pads on my Polo 1.9 TDi


this is a turn in caliper, meaning that as you try to compress the piston, you also need to rotate it clockwise. you can buy tool for this at nearly any parts store, and is fairly inexpensive.

Put in new brake shoes on VW POLO


New shoes have more meat on them, thus will normally be too tight against drum. Did you back off the adjusters to compensate for that?
