Anyone know of a "how to" for fixing a heater fan on a mk4 polo? Is this a common problem?
Thanx

i have the same problem with the abs light. the little caution bulb goes out when i release the handbrake only to come on once i move away. is that down to the abs sensor (speed sensor) on the front wheels? i have sourced two new abs sensors for 12 each> will be fitting them along with new discs and pads. hope this cures it.
