  1. Clearing out my garage and found some Corrado rear brake components that I never got around to using. All these items are brand new. Rear disks, these are made by Vetech and are 226mm in diameter. Rear pads x 4 with new caliper bolts made by Eicher Pair of rear wheel bearings to fit the disks, again made by Vetech Finally a pair of rear antiroll bar bushes. Can't remember what I paid for these now. Will sell everything for £40 plus postage. These will fit the 1.8, 1.8 G60 and 2.0 Thanks Nick [ATTACH=CONFIG]90230[/ATTACH] [ATTACH=CONFIG]90233[/ATTACH] [ATTACH=CONFIG]90236[/ATTACH]
  2. Here are the various head units that I have available if any of them are of any use to you? ( Actually had 3 in the end that may be of use? )
  3. I've got 2 in the garage. I'll upload some pics tomorrow. £24 delivered if you would like one. I think one is Sony and one is Kenwood?
  4. Just got one or two small parts that I don't need that may be of use to some people? I have a black front VW badge all tabs intact ( recently sprayed ) - £10 delivered A rear chrome VW badge ( Both tabs are broken on the back so would need sticking on? - £5 delivered Drivers side pre 92 speaker cover - £10 delivered Two switches - £8 each delivered. 16V front grill badge tabs intact - £8 delivered Not sure if these are ok prices?

  5. Thanks for getting back to me. I may buy one and see if I like it better than my early one.
  6. I have read that the late spec grill is different to the early grill due to the 3 location lugs on the later grill. But has anyone fitted one of these to their early cars and if so, do you have any pictures to show if it works ok? Just worried that the lights won't line up properly or it won't won't line up with the bonnet? Thinking of buying one from VW Heritage, but don't want to waste my money. Thanks
  7. Purchased this 16V badge for my front grill but have decided to not use it. It is in good condition with the lugs intact and the red in good condition. Does £10 delieverd sound fair? [ATTACH=CONFIG]83530[/ATTACH] [ATTACH=CONFIG]83531[/ATTACH]
  8. Would the front panel fit a prefacelift or am I right in thinking that the part under the headlights is bigger?
  9. Hi, Thanks for replying to me David. It does sound from you have said that it could be down to the WUR ( Warm up regulator) . I replaced the fuel filter today for a new one, just to eliminate it. However it is still doing the same thing. I will drop you a PM regarding the WUR.
  10. Hope someone can point me in the right direction with this. I am currently restoring an early Corrado ( 91 J PLate ) it is a 1.8 16v with the KR engine. It had been stood for about 4 years before I got my hands on it and it was dead as a dodo at the time. I have replaced both fuel pumps and some fuel lines on the car. I then managed to get it to start, but it ran aweful! I have since put a new distributer and rotor arm on, new spark plugs and new airfilter. The car now starts and sounds lovely. ( There was a blow from the exhaust, but replaced the damaged the mid section with a brand new part) It will start first time and sit at idle and sound perfect. But when I dip the accelerator pedal it is bogging down and lumpy. However once the engine is warm, it runs perfect as it should. My first though was avacuum leak, but all the hoses are fine. The ISV is sounding on start up and yet I removed it and cleaned it anyway and this is all free moving inside from what I can see. There are various vacuums around the airbox on the car, so was wondering if these had any relevance on the cold start issue. The only two things I havedone yet is to replace the injectors or the fuel filter, but these would surely cause a running issue all the time and not just when cold. Does anyone have ideas I could try please? Thanks.
  11. Thanks Ron, Gearknob is now sold.
  12. Just building my Corrado and have a few small parts that I don't need if they are of use to anybody. A pair of speakers by FLI that are 7"x5" - £12 delivered. A Fog light switch in working condition - £5 delivered A 16V Badge for a facelift grill with tabs intact - £7 delivered A Leatherette Gear knob in new condition - £8 delivered.

  13. Thanks for the offers guys, but I am going to buy a new one from Euro car Parts as they are only £10.50 anyway. Just wanted to make sure there was no difference in size.
  14. Thanks very much, I will order one and hopefully it will fit. Mine looks like it was cleaned with a scouring pad at some point in its life.
