  • 1997 -1999 models could experience cracking to the vacuum hose to the Brake servo, reducing servo effectiveness – care should be taken to check the hose before misdiagnosing an internal fault with the servo. (VOSA)
  • 1999 – 2001 Polo GTI models experienced a problem with the way the clutch pedal bracket was welded, resulting in the clutch not operating correctly. The condition of the clutch pedal mounting should be checked when diagnosing/replacing a clutch to identify a possible alternative reason for clutch failure. (VOSA)
  • Polo saloon, Estate and Caddy has experienced similar problems with the Vacuum hose to the servo as the other models, so care should be taken in this area when investigating lack of servo action. (No date ranges supplied by VOSA).
  • 2004 models built with 3 and 4 cylinder PD engines – the bolts to the tandem fuel pump cover may break due to a production fault leading to a diesel leak from the pump housing. (VOSA)
