  1. Welcome aboard mate. I'm in Davenport and work in Wythenshawe. I had loads of wter getting into the passenger footwell and it ended up being where an alarm fitter had drilled into the bulkhead. A bit of silicone later and it has been dry ever since.
  2. Is the sunroof the later model with the indentation for the motor to fit into, and do you have the motor? If so, how much posted to Manchester? Thanks
  3. Glad you got it sorted, and hope that was the cause of the trouble. Mine's had no trouble since reconnecting the plug. I think it was the alarm fitters who loosened the plug on mine, and eventually it just fell out. Mine was on the bottom row too, so it sounds like it was the same one. Good luck with it.
  4. I had that problem recently. Do all of the MFA functions work ok on your dashboard? Mine had all failed, including the temp gauge, and I later found that I'd dislodged a plug on the back of the fuse board while tracing an other fault. After I'd reconnected it and VAG-COMed it again, I had no MAF fault :D
  5. From what I've read, when you closed the sunshade, wind noise is reduced anyway. I ran mine briefly with a knackered headliner, and you got wind noise from the standard roof. It's suprising how much the liner mufles the sound. I think that the sliding mechanism is different in the passat, as it has no "arms" to lift the headliner. I was looking at a golf sunroof for parts, and they're different unfortunately. Out of interest, where did you get the sunroof, as I need on for mine, as it's knackered.
  6. If you do that you'll see the inside of the metal panel, as the passat roof doesn't have the sunroof headliner that the corrado does. Also the passat mechanism won't lift the sunroof headliner. As the passat sunroof has a sliding sunshade, I don't think there'd be room for your headliner to fit in as well, might be wrong there though...
  7. Sorry for the delay answering. Yes that's the price I paid for mine too :cuckoo: If your local branch is like mine, then the are running a promotion at the moment, where you can get a 10% off card, well worth getting if you own a corrado!
  8. The one I got from ECP recently was the wrong one, so I ended up getting one from GSF. After you've removed the 2 nuts, it should just come away from the bulkhead. Obviously you'll need to disconnect the brake lines to remove it completely :nuts: Might just need a bit of manoeuvring to get it out completely. Try tapping the bolts gently with a hammer from the inside of the car, just to get a bit of play in them, then the MC should come away from the bulkhead. Remember that it's probably been on for quite a while, so might have "seized" slightly, might just need a little persuasion to come off.
  9. Im in Swinton if that's any help mate
  10. Spotted a mystic blue storm on the M60 this morning, at about 11.00, reg E57 ORM (nice plate mate 8)) I was in the red VR the was having a bit of fun with you. Nice how the traffic moved from the outside lane for us :)
  11. I had similar trouble recently. Every time I tried to select reverse, I got 1st. Try giving the linkage (on the gearbox) a squirt or 2 of WD40, it worked for mine. You never know, it might be that easy for once.
  12. Spotted a dark coloured corrado 7.30 this evening going towards Worsley, on Worsley Rd from the East Lancs Rd. Didn't see year or flavour of it, was bit too dark.
