VW Polo. 2013 . 1.6 petrol. I want to change the spark plugs. How do I go about removing the plastic carier with the coils that sits directly above the plugs ,

They are pressed in, so use something to pry them out slowly. I recommend you use a few drops of oil around the coils to make it easier to remove. Then make sure you wipe them prior to installation.

To install:

Fig. The removal and installation of the thermostat

  1. Install the thermostat.
  2. Install the thermostat housing and gasket.
    NOTE Use the correct fastener in the correct location. Replacement fasteners must be the correct part number for that application. Fasteners requiring replacement or fasteners requiring the use of thread locking compound or sealant are identified in the service procedure. Do not use paints, lubricants, or corrosion inhibitors on fasteners or fastener joint surfaces unless specified. These coatings affect fastener torque and joint clamping force and may damage the fastener. Use the correct tightening sequence and specifications when installing fasteners in order to avoid damage to parts and systems.
  3. Install the thermostat housing bolts and tighten them to 18 ft. lbs. (25 Nm).
  4. Install the radiator hose to the thermostat housing.
  5. Install the crossover exhaust pipe.
  6. Install the air cleaner and duct assembly.
  7. Fill the cooling system.

My ABS light showin my my dash board and it was scanned my mitsubishi. Presently the light is still showing and when I break, I hear some noise as if the break pad is pad. I currently have new beak pad...


New brake pads require 'wearing in' and may make a scraping sound for the first 50km or so.


First, I suggest you remove the PCM "Fuse" (in the main junction box, under bonnet) for 10secs, then re-insert. If you cannot find fuse, then disconnect NEG battery cable for 10secs. This will reset your PCM.

Start engine and allow to idle for 15mins (this allows the PCM to re-learn settings).

Drive car a short distance to determine if ABS light comes back on. If ABS light does come back on, then have the PCM scanned for fault codes. This will identify which ABS component is causing the (warning light) problem.

If light remains off (and the pads are worn in), but you still have scraping noise, then something else is causing this problem and will require further investigation.

How to replace thermostat on 200 kia sephia

So long as the meter does not go into the Red/Orange zone, then it is likely just getting hotter because of the hot weather.

You can help avoid any problems by not driving in stop and go traffic and trying to park the car in shady spots when you can. Not driving for more than an hour helps and driving with the Vent on will help too (but it will make it extra hot inside the car, lol).

If it reaches the red zone, then park it and get ready, cause it's time to replace the thermostat and do a general tune up.

I think i have located the thermostat but there is something mounted about it that would have to be unbolted in order to get to the thermostat, does anyone know what this is and if i can get to the...

You state that you think you have located the thermostat. The part that will need to be unbolted and removed is the thermostat housing. Simply remove the radiator hose and remove the bolts holding the housing in place. You may need to tap the housing gently to break it loose. The thermostat is located in the housing. Be sure to carefully scrap off any remaining gasket on the thermostat housing and the engine where the housing sits. Replace the thermostat and install a new gasket, replace housing, tighten bolts evenly and reattach radiator hose. Top off the radiator to replace any lost coolant.

Front right wheel bearing and break pads

Nope. 90% chance its your caliper pins. the caliper is required to float. When you remover the caliper by the two pins or whatever your application they require lube. if one is bent or seized the caliper wont float, the pads or pad will continue to wear because the caliper wont return to "neutral" location when the piston no longer has pressure on it. locate these pins and lubricate them with a graphite grease or something like lubriplate or similar. if the pins are bent remove them and replace. they're pretty cheap. good luck

Difficulty removing Thermostat

on the v6 engine the thermostat is a little tricky. if you remove the throttle body the thermostat is much easier. the lower bolt does't have to come all the way out, but almost. if you use a ratchet wrench that is about as easy as it gets. the exaust pipe cover can also be removed by taking out the 4 10mm bolts but they are usually rusted and break off. on the 4 cyl this is a major task it is located on the back side of the engine and is almost impossible to do at home without teaching you car several new words. i recomend taking the car to a shop in this case. hope i helped you, if not feel free to ask more questions... dustang
