    I think if the obsolete side can be remanufactured to a good standard then it will sell like hot cakes.
    Yep. am sure we would have some too.

    If that doesn't work, I may be willing to lend you a passenger side scraper (535837473A) so long as it comes back to me in the same brand new condition.

    Before anyone asks, the scraper is not for sale... hen's teeth :-)


    Regards, James
    Thank you, I think I've sourced a new drivers side, when it arrives I'll send it off for a quote, if they can't flip then I'll message you about the other one. No idea how long the process will take.

    Here is an option but will have to ship over from the States , I asked Anna from VW Heritage to see if they can strike a relationship with them but heard nothing back.

    Cheers seen those on my search travels be too costly for me especially with shipping costs

    I did also find some people in the states use ford cougar ones with a bit of modification but not really any of them about over here anyone found any models over here we can use/mod to fit?

    I do have one drivers one left on a door off my old car that was new when that got painted but that was over ten year ago and it's been sat in a garden under a tarp so can't see it just sliding off!

    Also could do with both sides... Got a paint job planned but want to stock up on some seals first.. Spoke with VW Heritage who said demand for the Corrado doesn't justify trying to arrange or source another production run! I've read some chat on Classicparts.de arranging another production run in the next 2-3 months, although someone else says they've been saying that for the last year!

    Any further chat on an aftermarket option?

    I think whoever comes up with the passenger side one will make a mint. 200 will shift in a couple of weeks when word gets about. I have 2 drivers ones but no passenger ones, used my last one on my old blackberry cause the one I put on was a couple of mill out and annoyed me, not as annoying as not having one now for a door I want spraying on this.
    Got to put a photo in lol

    Hi, I would be very interested in these too. I have a new drivers side, but need a passenger side too, and would buy 2 of the left and one of the right, to ensure I have a spare.

    Someone did a run of 16" wheels for the Corrado a while back by getting pledges from those that wanted a set, and it was a massive success, so I'm sure it could work with the scraper seals too.

    Here's hoping.
