  1. Hi, The standard wires are described in this thread: Definitive Guide to Corrado Stereo Wiring. Mods pls sticky! - ICE 'n' Secure - The Corrado Forum (the-corrado.net) and on A2 Resource Radios (a2resource.com). You can buy Radio connectors from eBay (for example https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/363857704289) - if you want to build your own harness? As you know you only need a good earth, permanent fused 12v and switch 12v from the Ignition switch. But it also depends on what is left of your wiring harness - there could be live wires in there if the harness has been cut off. Or (hopefully) the radio connectors are still in there somewhere?! I'm sure the radio wiring is part of the dash wiring harness. I doubt they would have unpicked all the radio wires nicely...
  2. Just to report back... I bought a pair of replacement adjuster bits from the chap on Etsy. It wasn't too difficult to replace the adjuster base - just fiddly. I had to split the headlight to disconnect the adjuster from the reflector (I could not get enough purchase on the barb to disconnect the adjuster using a screwdriver from behind through the bulb opening). Then I used a drift to knock the adjuster shaft from/through the handle, so I could screw the shaft into the new part. Adjuster assembly shows the parts separately. The new part is the white bit in the middle (re-using the original gromet). Once fitted, it looks like this: I've not got the headlight back in the car yet, so not sure if the adjustment range is there, but it seems ok so far...
  3. Has anyone used their replacement adjusters? Are they any good? Someone else is doing them on Etsy now: VW Corrado Headlamp Adjusters 3D Printed Replacements in PETG - Etsy UK Just wondering if this is a viable fix in reality...
  4. Got mine through the door today, too! Many thanks.
  5. Above the airbox (internal fan body area) there will be two studs pointing down from the horizontal part of the car body (under the windscreen). Two nuts hold the mounting plate up - they may even be plastic nuts?
  6. Found the setup image on google ( from the thread: G60 ABS Issue - Not the Usual - Drivetrain - The Corrado Forum (the-corrado.net) ) and the relay image from ebay ( https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/334259369727 ). The relay socket has a T-piece type affair which slots between the "fingers" of the mounting plate. It could be these are cracked and don't hold it in place anymore?
  7. There is a silver metal mounting plate that is bolted to the top of the bulk head and the relay wiring harness clips into the slots on the mounting plate. I'll see if I have a pic'...
  8. Have a look at Fender's post on the 288 Calipers - pad slap/clonk thread: http://the-corrado.net/topic/87422-288-calipers-pad-slapclonk/?do=findComment&comment=1038657
  9. Adding to Shaun, use a heat gun to get a little warmth in the plastic and slide the outside triangle off (toward the front of the car from memory). There is a flat plastic hook affair which slides into the metal door frame. Take your time and do not break it!
  10. There are two coolant temperature sensors - one for the gauge in the dash and one for the ECU. If you have VCDS see if you can see what temperature is being reported to the ECU? if they are similar the temperature is probably correct.
  11. They should all be the same. Have a look at a2resource.com:Central Electric 2 (a2resource.com)
  12. No, there is no self test feature for the brake system (the ABS does a self test). The brake system lamp on the dash is probably illuminated because the handbrake is applied. With the handbrake off (and brake fluid in the reservoir), the brake warning lamp in the dash is 'off' as you turn the key. The water and oil temperature lamps flash and the alternator light is 'on' until the engine is started. You could also place a paper clip (or a bit of wire) across the pins of the reservoir connector and check the lamp illuminates. Same with the handbrake connector...
