    The definitive 'Late Corrado Heater Controls' thread

    As this topic is being covered over various areas of the forum, I thought I'd start off a thread where all information can be collated in relation to the problems and solutions with regards to the heater controls on the late Corrado (rotary controls).

    So if anyone has any tips / tricks for repairing / replacing the troublesome unit, please add your comments!

    Here's a few threads i've collated together from recent conversation.

    Golf MkIII controls are fairly common at autojumbles (VW jumbles anyway!) and scrappies for around £5, and all of the parts are interchangeable with Corrado controls.

    anyone know which black cable goes where? took mine out and not sure if they were correctly fitted? And how do get the flap control lower lever up? It seems to be not moving while I rotate the knob .
    It's amazing how many problems look like a Nail , when the only tool you have is Hammer....

    Which parts of the Mk3 controls do you need? Just the control panel? Do the Bowden cables just match straight up?

    No, nothing to do with Tristan H.

    It was nrc's earlier post that Mk3 controls are interchangeable with Corrado ones. My control panel vent control has broken (I think) and I'm looking for a quick fix. Just wanted to know if the control panel from a Mk 3 is a straight swap, like the Passat one.

    Just repaired mine with a bit of ingenious plastic welding (direction dial) where the pivot housing for the "underneath" arm had broken, and the cam snail had broken on the underside of the gear. ...

    Anyway, I had some spares off a 6n polo ('94 - '99) which are tantalisingly close looking, but 1 of the cams is "backwards", so are NOT interchangeable!

    Just thought I'd flag this up, as scrapyards are full of them at the moment!

    So it's either a Passat heater control, or find a ton for a replacement Corrado panel then?

    eBay has a few 'Rado ones for strong money, don't see ANY Passat ones on there tho...sadly this is a job I'm going to have to tackle sooner or later...
