  1. That seems feasible Fla - its been few years since I rebuilt mine and the mix & match approach between Corrado and Golf mk3 pieces allowed me to create one complete set ( iodide;t and don't have any 3D printing capability 🙂
  2. fly it looks like you have greased the sunroof guides; if so this will be part of your problem, you ned to use the special vw lube, expensive but well worth it. In my experience it is best to set the roof mechanism up off the car so that you can see what is or is not working correctly. Time consuming but very worth it. I suspect that something on the left hand side is broken/stretched. Much earlier in this thread you will see that is outlined the use of VW type 3 sunroof; what i did was common the various parts of my Corrado roof guides with parts from the Type 3 to create one working unit.
  3. Can someone confirm what amp cable I need to replace this section please?
  4. Perfect Sean, many thanks - pity the wiring can't be as simple as Beetle :-)
  5. Can anyone direct me to the pin designations for the fusebox please? regards Red
  6. In working to resolve a problem where our '92 V6 auto cuts out we have established the coil pack was faulty. Next with the fan blower and headlights on the battery terminal and one of the thick red wires heading to the teminal are heating up. The fault appears to e on the thick red wire that runs to the rear of the fuse box. There is no fuse on the wire near the battery - should there be? The wire seems to be corroded slightly but even when cleaned under load it becomes warm. Is this a known fault? any thoughts solutions appreciated. I plan to refit the headlight 'plug and play' upgrade to lighten the load but still prefer to resolve this issue. Regards Red
  7. Righto off to stt looking again - many thanks Geeba
  8. Hi Geeba, thank you for your suggestion but sadly that is not the part on my car (VW Part No 357 905 104)- I'm unsure if the part was specific to the automatic and that may explain the difference; tired a non OEM part but while externally it looked the same internally it was not - wierd, hence my search for an OEM VW/Bosch part Regards Red

    Coil Pack

    Looking for a coil pack for my VR6 automatic VW Part Number 357 904 104 / Bosch Number 0221601006 - hopefully someone on here can help regards Red
  10. I'll say Aye to the mats if they are still available
  11. I think the part number could be 191927149C I got mine from the USA last year but it was a struggle - this may also be of help http://forums.vwvortex.com/showthread.php?6881816-Gear-Indicator-light
  12. Great result - well done - need to tell VW Heritage thats the new price!

    Broken sunroof?

    I eventually managed to locate some of these from the US a couple of years ago, only to find it was a case of cause and effect with the wider mechanism broken. Type 3 Gold mechanism came to the rescue - hopefully some help to you
  14. The LHD drive bulb can be made to fit - I did just this earlier in the year, it was surprisingly straightforward. I think I had to get the bulb from the USA if I recall correctly.
  15. Pretty sure that they will not fit I'm afraid. If your sunroof is jammed up, the you should be able to lower it manually by removing he core around the switch mechanism and screwing the thread (clockwise I think) behind it while adjusting whatever is causing the jam manually. Its a fiddle but will keep you mobile until the parts are located
