**SOLD** Blackberry VR6 For Sale
Purgatori posted a topic in Cars for Sale [Corrado]**UPDATED** Sadly, I am selling my metallic blackberry VR6. Life has changed a lot for me in the last couple of years and I have new priorities now which, unfortunately, mean it's no longer feasible for me to keep my Corrado. I've owned her since 2005. She was my daily runner until 2011 when 3 yrs of pay freezes etc. etc. forced me to SORN her. And there she sat until 2018 when I finally started working to get her back on the road. Cue a bit of a major hiccup in the form of an enforced relocation and Corona Virus, but now finally, as of Oct 2020, and roughly £2,200 later, she is running, driving, serviced and MOT'd again. I'll put as much detail as I can think of below, but please feel free to contact and ask questions, get more photos, whatever you like. 1994, M reg VR6 in Metallic Blackberry MOT until Oct 2022 New service, Oct 2021 Mileage: 111,200 £6,000 £5,700 ono Good Stuff: Starts first time, every time Runs lovely - brand new MAS and reconditioned ISV this October Koni coilover adjustable suspension Lupo windscreen wiper conversion Green air filter Spoiler works, goes up at 60mph Still has original speedlines Still has original first aid kit - unopened! Headliner not sagging It's the best colour Less-good stuff: Some rust coming on driver-side front wheel arch Paint showing it's age a bit Headliner is grey and could do with a shampoo Driver-side headlight cracked - I have bought a replacement unit, I just can't shift the screws to replace it (combination lack of decent tools and strength!) Passenger-side headlight has a stone chip Driver's seat bolster fabric is a bit worn - yes, this means she has a fabric interior Trip computer works when it wants to, not when you want it to Passenger electric window won't open. You can hear the relay ping, but it doesn't move. The Unknown Stuff: I have not tried the sunroof. Just in case. Overall she's showing some signs of her age and needs some more in-depth TLC, but she is a good, honest little motor. I think she runs better now than she did in 2011! I'm not a mechanic, but I think most of what needs doing now is more cosmetic. I still love driving her, she makes the best noise and still puts a massive smile on my face, but it's time she goes to an enthusiast who has the time and energy to put into her. She is a great start for someone looking for a Corrado to make their own and I would love to see her have a new lease of life with someone who will enjoy owning her as much as, or hopefully even more than, me. She's based near Cardiff. Thank you for looking. And if you have a Corrado already, please do feel free to tell any friends who are jealous of your Rado 😉
VR6 radiator fan won't stop
QuasiRob posted a topic in Engine BayThe radiator fans on my M reg VR6 won't stop. They start as soon as I start the engine and just keep going. I've changed the radiator thermo switch (see http://the-corrado.net/showthread.php?53962-Changing-the-radiator-thermo-switch-on-a-VR6 ) but it's made no difference. Anyone got any ideas? Cheers!
Changing the radiator thermo switch on a VR6
QuasiRob posted a topic in Engine BayHi, I have to fit a new radiator fan switch to my M reg VR6. I've got the new switch, I've found where it goes at the bottom of the radiator...how do I get the old one out?! I've taken the battery out but there isn't room to get an adjustable wrench around the switch. How did anyone else do it? The nut part of the switch would fit a 28mm spanner.
