    Spoiler speed

    I have just got another Corrado and the spoiler seems to raise at 60mph. Is this normal? My last Corrado raised at about 40-50.

    I'd actually prefer it to raise at 40ish. I have a complete spoiler + tailgate left from my last one. Any chance the control box is located in the tailgate?

    No, It's under the dash by the button for the spoiler.

    Maybe your speedo is over-reading

    Just be aware that very early models have a different plug connection than later ones for the spoiler control module.

    As for raising and lowering speeds, the Corrado is designed for the spoiler to raise at 72mph IIRC. This obviously caused some issues for the UK model as the legal limit is a bit less than that! So early models came with a raised speed of 47mph instead. This speed was changed with the introduction of the VR to give a sportier feel to 58mph.

    Hi guys,
    Sorry for the thread resurrection. The spoiler on my corrado comes up at over 70 so guessing (given what I’ve read here) that the ecu has been replaced at some point for an eu one...?
    Anyway, plenty about on eBay etc. I’ve got the cover off from under the steering wheel, but I’m none the wiser as to where exactly the ecu is? I can just see all the fuses and relays? Anyone got a picture??

    Many thanks in advance
    Cluffy
