  1. Thanks Hasan, I'll start searching through my spare relay collection for one with a click then!
  2. On the subject of indicators, do everyone else’s make noise? Mine are silent when flashing but I don’t remember if it was always that way, has my relay lost it’s click???
  3. When your car gets to come out, love it! The biggest problem I have with the a/c is that it’s a Frankenstein job, conversations seem to go this way: Tony: I’d like to get my a/c re-gassed please. Salesperson: No problem sir, could your confirm age and registration etc. Tony: Gives details but points out this won’t help them as the installed system came from a 96 Passat VR6 and also that the condenser and drier have been replaced with items from Mk4 Golf and the pipe work modified to suit. Salesperson (after consulting a wiser person): Sorry sir, we can’t help you as we wouldn’t know how much gas to put in, it has to be weighed you see. And so it continues. I even had one tell me recently they wouldn’t know which gas to use as there’s a new one on the market since around 2017, even though I’ve told them it’s a 95 car with a 96 system!!! At least Mick Farrar, whilst he’s booked up for the next few weeks, is prepared to suck it and see, to have an feel for the job and charge the system until the pressure is something like right.
  4. Too right it is! I then drove over to the guy not a million miles from you at Beighton to see about getting the a/c gassed but he can’t fit me in til 26th August 🙄
  5. Mine does exactly the same thing, strangely enough when turning around on my own drive, not really heard it anywhere else! Spec sounds similar, 288 brakes, R32 rear bushes, Powerflex front bushes. I can’t imagine where there’s play as nothing under there has more than maybe 5K miles on it. I convinced myself it was a wheel bearing, although they’re all new, but couldn’t find it when I tried them and tightened everything up. I was hoping you were going to solve it for me when you mentioned the same problem, at least I don’t have to buy drive shafts to try fix it! I’ll let you know if I find anything.
  6. Great news about the build starting, hope you manage to hurry the tiles along! We’re expecting to re-roof the house in a couple of months and hoping to stay lucky with materials. The world has gone mad with things right now, I’m trying to order 8 smoke detectors, admittedly fairly specific type, and I’ve been quoted May 23 delivery on them, how can that even be possible?
  7. I used glue and tar spot remover, still a gooey and horrible job. Left it off after I’d had the car painted though, didn’t want to ruin the shiny under bonnet!
  8. Well done, looks great in the photos 👍
  9. Think I’ve got my original callipers kicking around the garage still Chris if you’re looking for something in a hurry.
  10. It’s not a diff or driveshaft issue is it, I know you’ve done a lot to the car, have you mixed and matched parts and something’s getting loaded on lock? I’ve seen skippy diffs load up a lot on lock in the past too.
  11. Parked my car at the local farm shop earlier then stood drooling over a 997 GT3 a few spaces down before I nipped in the shop. When I come out there’s a guy stood looking at the Corrado, “Love the car” he says, goes on to tell me he wanted one in the day but never had one etc etc. I get in to leave and he gets in his GT3, wish I’d realised, he might have done a straight swap!!!
  12. ABS sensor ring slightly bent and catching a sensor, I had this.
  13. I just checked the date on the photo, it was six years ago when the centre brake light went in although I must have had the fitting sat around for five or more years before that waiting for the opportunity to use it.
  14. It's the original UK tailgate but we fitted a genuine US brake light assembly when I was having the car painted. Didn't use any template as I wanted it to finish flush with the tailgate rather than sitting proud as originally intended. There was a lot of discussion on here years ago about whether a third light should be mounted higher and a few fitted them in the top of the rear screen but I've always been of the opinion that it's a centre light that's the important addition, after all many OEM lights are fitted at almost the same level as the outer lights. I had the wiper hole welded up at the same time which freed up the spare wire I needed for the brake light, saved me threading another one through the tailgate!
