    Sound about right, the 90 degree twist test was always my base setting when I did cam belt.

    I'd hazard a guess and say your sliders are seizing. Just need taking out, cleaning and greasing up. Either that or take caliper off and wind piston right in to make sure it's nice and free

    The problem you have with any seat you find is the height, there's plenty of seats around that would look good but none seem to sit as low as the corrado does. There's a recaro option for the mk3 you...

    Could have sworn my old 89 valver had a cable clutch but that was over 10 years ago and I've worked on tonnes of mk2's since so chances are my memory is playing tricks on me. If that's the case we...
