  1. Photos http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Corrado-Vr6-and-private-REG/232534503576 Its come time to sell my corrado. I parked the car up a few years ago. Last year i took the decision to stick it back on the road but i didnt use it much at all as it inst my daily driver. I think its time to pass it on to someone else to enjoy. I have cherished this car over the years I have had it and loved driving it. the previous owner was an old chap retiring who had it for around 12 years and garaged it every night. One of the reasons i bought it was his character and long ownership, as well his history file he kept. I have tried my best to always carry this on and put receipts in there to keep a good history. it was standard in his ownership and still remains that way. I have removed the side bump strips but they are included with the sale in good condition. they could be reattached very easily if you wish to do so. it has heated seats, electric windows and sunroof, power steering, a lot of history. the colour is Bordeaux pearl which is a really nice colour in my opinion one of the best. The work i have done whilst i have had includes, new radiator new crack pipe and thermostat housing replace oil cooler seals brakes have had a going over for mot including new pads and hand brake cables new tyres all round for last years mot, doubt they have covered more than a couple of hundred miles new under bonnet foam. OEM style stuff from the corrado forum in a group buy. not the thin reproduction. drivers window scraper wheels resprays rear beam bushes, brake lines replaced on beam at this point new cat and lambda a week ago wishbone bushes top mounts front and back plugs, ht leads and dizzy cap cv boot rear wheel bearings aux belt and new tensioner and im sure there's more i cant remember I have really tried to make sure the car doesn't have all the Corrado gremlins. Other things not covered in the list above are. centre console surround uncracked fog and indicator lenses not cracked spoiler works sunroof works heated seats work ht lead remover in boot first aid kit all there and original I have scanned the car and there are no faults presents 110k mileage good door handles cleaned out and sealed the foliage intake to ensure no water leaks don't start from leaves, common issue. 3 of the abs sensors have been done, i recently tested all 4 with a multi meter and all spot on readings. abs ecu is not water damaged Private Registration is included which links to the cars model 12 months mot There is some bolster wear on drivers side, which is normal for any car of this age. If you would like to rectify this i think a little dye rubbed in will work wonders and transform it. the trim on the door has bubbled. there is a metal strip inside the trim. It isnt the door that has rusted and could be replaced with a 2nd hand unit from a breaker. the odd tiny dent but only minor not really visible. head light has a chip in it but does not cause any issues with mot etc. The car is an honest example there are some minor things on the car but i think in leaving these and not trying to cover everything up it leaves the car alot more honest and desirable in my opinion. The car is a good example of a corrado with non of the usual issues. Some of the parts such as fog lights are now very rare and would cost you a fortune to buy.

  2. Well there fixed. I'm a shamed to say this but it seems the issue was two things. Broken connections in my drivers seat which I had fixed. And then the fact I had the plug in back to front on the dash dial. So I was sat in one seat and turning the other on haha. No idea why the plug isn't directional so it can be put in wrong. Cheers for your help. I guess I'll never know what the wire did
  3. Both seats now have continuity on the two pairs of pins. Still no luck though. I'm wondering if the relays are both buggered despite clicking. I'm at a loss about this wire and can only assume it's from something a previous owner has done.
  4. Much appreciated is your help so far. It appears my drivers seat must have a break in the backrest as I get no continuity. So I'll have to fix that. In the passenger side I get continuity on pairs 1-2. 3-4. And 2 volts on pins 5 and 6. I think my best bet is to strip the drivers and fix that break and then I know 100% this seat is ok. Your picture shows the earth to body reentering the wiring loom not going back to the relays. I have cut back the tape on my loom a good 6 inch and no signs of the other end of the wire. I'm absolutely baffled with this wire.
  5. I was searching all last night. My relay looks just like that. There doesn't appear to be anywhere a ring crimp can connect on your picture. I tried searching for a picture of relays on a car for reference but I luck. I found through search that 1 and 2, 3 and 4 should have continuity. Should I have a voltage between 5 and 6 then?
  6. is anyone able to tell me what each terminal is on the 6 pin plug on the base of the seats. basically my heated seats are not working i thought originally it was just the drivers and suspected the usual broken wire in the base. I checked this and repaired it. but still nothing and also nothing on my passenger seat. Both relays click on you can hear them and i've had the door card off to check. i remember seeing somewhere the pins that should have continuity and the pins that should be 12v. on top of this when i did take rear quarter door card off there is a black wire clamped between the relay bracket and body (obviously an earth) but it is cut off and no sign anywhere of a the other end. which is strange. 3 questions. What are the pins so i can test at the seat? and also anyone know if there should be an earth to boday at the relays? pins on the relay to check these also? thanks andrew
  7. Will these go in to the detail vagcom will and tell me what my abs fault is caused by and not just that I have an abs fault
  8. I need my vr6 scanning by vagcom, im in burnley. anyone local who can help me out please.
  9. I've got a vr6 cylinder head for sale. I bought it a while ago with the intentions of having a go at refurbishing it and porting and polishing it. I don't know anything about it's history other than it came off a working engine. The camshaft is still in it along with valves and rocket cover. £40 pick up Burnley
  10. Koni coilovers for vr6. some of the adjusters are seized but should come undone i think with some work as they have all been free at some point from memory. one of the shock adjusters has broken on the top also. Konis can be rebuilt I believe so this could be sorted. They have been sat around the garage for ages so about time they go. cant sell them as working due to the time they have been lieing around but they seem ok. £70 pick up burnley [ATTACH=CONFIG]85272[/ATTACH][ATTACH=CONFIG]85273[/ATTACH]
