VW Polo Haynes manual service

Haynes has published 13 videos of popular maintenance procedures, available at no extra cost for subscribers of the Volkswagen Polo (’09-’14) online Workshop Manual. The VW Polo manual covers the 1.2 litre (1198 cc) and 1.4 litre (1390 cc) petrol engines and the  1.2 litre (1199 cc) and 1.6 litre (1598 cc) diesel engines. 

The newly released videos cover jobs for your Mk5 Volkswagen Polo such as changing the air filter, renewing the front brake pads, replacing the rear shock absorbers and changing the auxiliary drive belt.

The Volkswagen Polo (’09-’14) Owner’s Workshop Manual is available in print and online manual formats. The online manual adds full colour images, the 13 how-to videos, and the ability to access the service and repair information on your PC, laptop, tablet or smartphone.

Haynes is the industry leader in automotive manuals, having sold over 200 million manuals worldwide, and Haynes has been helping everyday motorists to save money on costly garage bills for more than 60 years.

Every manual is written from hands-on experience gained from stripping down and rebuilding each vehicle in the Haynes Project Workshop.

The practical step-by-step instructions and clear photos are easy to follow and provide information on maintenance, servicing, fault finding, the MoT and Haynes tips to make many tasks easier.
