    Bonnet release cable trumpets

    Hi Guys,

    Are these trumpets that are rare and was only from Phoenix engineering?

    Are these them think they have been remade by classics for a fair price ?

    Looks like the trumpet with the screw is still not available though on the other side.

    Am I correct in saying that the only difference is on the other trumpet that is has a thread in it ? Is it worth not buying some and getting a thred put in the other one .

    Also guys think I have found a new source for the bonnet lock pin set. Part number 431898550 which are obsolete.
    They look correct anyway and have the part number listed, good price as well.

    Hello mate,

    not sure about Phoenix engineering there could be another thread on info regarding that, I can't remember.

    But the link you've attached is for the trumpet guide/s for the MK2 Scirocco both sides, they were used from 1982 to roughly 1989 and don't have the locking bolt attached, the Scirocco used a separate Locking nipple to go with above trumpet guide, this locking nipple was fitted at the end of the driver's side trumpet guide, and bolts down on bonnet cable keeping it tort/tight.

    Locking nipple Part number 815 827 525

    The later MK2 Sciroccos had the locking trumpet guide with bolt, similar to the Corrado up until 1992 again on the driver's side UK spec cars or passenger side Europe/USA spec car's.
    Think the bonnet pull handle was on the left side for RHD and LHD Sciroccos.


    Here are the part numbers below:

    O/S/F trumpet guide Corrado 1988 to 1995
    Part number 443 823 597A

    N/S/F trumpet guide with locking bolt
    Corrado 1991 to 1995
    Part number 535 823 555

    N/S/F trumpet guide with locking bolt
    Part number 811 823 555
    for early Corrado 1988 to 1990



    O/S/F trumpet guide with locking bolt
    Part number 811 823 555
    for later MK2 Scirocco 1989 to 1992

    **********
    O/S/F trumpet guide MK2 Scirocco 1982 to 1989
    Part number 443 823 597A

    Locking nipple to go with above trumpet guide
    Part number 815 827 525
    Link below
    ************

    N/S/F trumpet guide MK2 Scirocco 1982 to 1992
    Part number 443 823 597A


    Hope this helps
    Si
    Had MK2 1.8 Scirocco Scarla 1998 to 2002
    had it lowered on original wheels,
    K&N air fitler and Janspeed exhaust system.

    Now have 94 M reg Corrado 2.0 16v since 2002 still got it, been off the road now since early 2015
    hoping to get it finished this year.

    Also have a 2015 Seat Ibiza TSI i-tech as my daily driver. Plus I'm on The SEAT Forum.

    Yes that is correct or you could purchase the locking nipple as fitted separately on the Scirocco, and fit it the same to the Corrado but on the passenger side.

    That's a great find and is the correct part number, I've checked on Classic Parts and yes it's still obsolete, plus I checked on ETKA and it was listed as a repair kit, looks like you were able to buy the whole thing, just like in the link you attached.

    Locking pin repair kit
    Part number 431 898 550
    Corrado

    I think VW Heritage were or are doing the rubber/nylon bush for the locking pin, but that's all nothing else.

    This locking trumpet definitely works on a Rado Si as this is constructed in a different way then the OE Corrado trumpet with the screw ? The other side the guide trumpet is the same part number for the Scirocco and Rado Si so shared the same part and I believe they have been obsolete for some time so good to see they are available at an affordable cost.

    Oh ok that's good to know,
    keep us updated on your thoughts once they're delivered, as I might be interested in getting a set, or if there's more interest from others, might be worth doing a group buy, the guy might amend his price if we buy in bulk ??
