    lol what's the trick then?
  6. Looks good. I have just taken a 1.8 8v mk2 gti engine out and messed about with all of its timing marks before dismantling to make sure it was correct. Yours will be fine
  7. Wish I bougbt koni T/As now and avoided this issue. But just been for a another spin and no noises and steering feels way way better too. The top plates above probably could have been drilled out wider to allow proper fitment. In 4 years this has never been right. Perhaps on first install the garage were able to use an impact gun to force it down. Sent from my SM-G960F using Tapatalk
  8. hello, CSV should work when temp. is below ca. 40 degrees with certain time according to the chart. Is that mean that voltage on CSV socket should appear only during this period ? I'm looking for solution to my problem with cold engine start and first what I checked was voltage on this socket - and I have continuolsy +12v when ingition is on and later when engine is idling [?].

    Not sure if the outer cover will come off without damage. Mine seem stuck fast and would cause damage if tried. Thanks again mate.

    No worries mate -I will probs open the original ones up one day and restore them .
  12. [email protected], @ger040 Yeah turns over by hand without any notable interference. Everything has been out and dismantled, head and block were removed/separated but not broken down as this had been done by the previous owner Sent using Tapatalk
  13. Yeah, I remember a long time ago that when fitting Bilsteins you need to change the spring plate depending on the year of the car - this may have been your issue.

    I was hoping that I might have found an odd one that would have filled the hole. Having to get 4 puts a new light on the situation. I've just looked at the condition of the other 3 and to be honest they are in bad shape, the front ones have actually warped a little with heat. With the cost and aesthetics considered, I figure I'd be better off to get 4 of the reps, at least then they will all match and would lay the road open for wheel refurbishment. This decision though makes me feel mean towards you, considering you took the time to help me Keyo! I'm sorry to mess you around buddy, but thank you for your help.
  15. OK I took the shocks off and rebuilt from scratch to torques. I noted the top spring plate was very difficult to remove from the threads the of the Bilstein shock - they are a wider thread than stock. This is probably why the assembly wasn't bolted in fully secure. I had some replacement caps from the mk3 that fitted over the threads nicely. I rolled the car back and forth before torquing the bolt for these. I put it back together with the shocks swapped over to opposite sides and set the camber to zero degrees (in the air with a jack under wishbone- quick and dirty). Went for a spin. It did clonk again once as I first reversed, but a lighter clonk like the spring reseating itself. It was then fine for thr rest of the test drive. I was pretty rough with it to test. Fingers crossed but have been here before... Sent from my SM-G960F using Tapatalk

    Or you have the option of buying some reps new. https://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/1131197423/bbs-badges-70mm-black-silver-centre-caps?gpla=1&gao=1&&utm_source=google&utm_medium=cpc&utm_campaign=shopping_uk_en_gb_a-electronics_and_accessories-car_parts_and_accessories-car_accessories&utm_custom1=_k_Cj0KCQjwgO2XBhCaARIsANrW2X1W8UpWO2VK_BKck50TfN7Ttb1FdTc0QdSUIzsBKI16p--oIuQwa4kaAoqeEALw_wcB_k_&utm_content=go_325945488_20231820168_88478017608_pla-106552232915_c__1131197423engb_102858184&utm_custom2=325945488&gclid=Cj0KCQjwgO2XBhCaARIsANrW2X1W8UpWO2VK_BKck50TfN7Ttb1FdTc0QdSUIzsBKI16p--oIuQwa4kaAoqeEALw_wcB

    G60 Timing Check

    It doesn't look too bad, the engine turns over OK with a spanner on the crank ie no interference between valves and pistons? Has it been a full strip with dizzy removed or just head off?

    Awesome Keyo I would much rather buy from you, Just the bog standard ones would be great. The fleabay ones are a little flawed it seems anyway. Would you mind posting up a photo or 2 just to show me the condition please mate. Thanks!
  20. its been a while from i done mine - i will have a look but it may be tomorrow at the earliest From what i remember at tdc the distributor arm should point at spark plug 1? At least your not feeling any resistance rotating by hand The engine has to be run up to temperature before any timing adjustments via the distributor
  21. They’re not handed, so you can swap struts side to side and see if the noise moves?
  22. My coilovers use the original top mount and plates. Camber as you say is with the bottom two bolts on the shocker
  23. Been to the local garage, great guys but they don't know older VWs inside out. They do take great care of the car though. Car went on shacker machine and no problems down below with bushes, arb, bearings but there is a problem with the top mount on the side the noise comes from. When they jacked the car up after the shacker machine the passenger side shock dropped a small amount and the noise was heard from the top of the shock. On testing there is lateral and vertical movement (about half a cm up and down but I think this is normal on VWs?). This is the 2nd new top mount (lemforder) installed this side. Either Stealth and myself have installed these incorrectly or there is something else amiss. A few questions if anyone can help. I may have to go back to Stealth (100mile trip) for diagnoises but am supposed to be showing the car at Silverstone and doubt I'll get it sorted intime if I go that route. - When installing the springs I ensured the ears on the spring plate and shock lined up with the ends of the spring. I also bought new springs plates from VW classic parts. - I didn't do anything special with lining up the top mount, just plonked it on and put a vw shock/topmount bush nut and then put the top plate and nut on when installed in the car. I used my impact gun as the allen head is rounded on the shock with the issue. I guess the shock could have spun and the garage today suggested I used mole grips with a rag on the shock body to make sure and torque up properly. - One remark - when I did the job to switch over to H&R springs, from eibach, altough the noise was still happening with eibach, i noticed a normal nut had been used on top of the bearing rather than the special VW bush nut. It would have been like this since the shocks were first installed a good 4 years ago and was the reason i changed the spring plates as they were misshapen. Could my shock be fecked? - Last Q - the garage said the camber is normally setup on the top mount placement hence my q above on not doing anything special when locating the topmount. I thought we did camber on the 2 bolts on the bottom of the shock on these cars? Do coilovers have the same setup as the spring plate used to convert later corrados to early spring design?
  24. Hi All, In the process of setting the timing on my G60 and wouldn't mind a 3rd (or more) pair of eyes to check my understanding of the sticky and Bentley. Unfortunately most of the image links in the sticky are broken so can't use those for reference Took a few goes but seems right from what I can tell, one thing I'm not sure on is the dizzy orientation? White mark on the flywheel is where the 'O' mark is for reference. Photos are after setting tension and 2/3 revolutions [emoji106] Sent using Tapatalk
  25. Anyone provide any input on this? Photo above shows the location and attached the 7zap extract Seems one of the bolts should have a stud on the head for attachment of this bracket - doesn't look like it on the catalog though? Sent using Tapatalk

    Its known as a 70 mm bbs centre cap - came on RZ Rm and a few others. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/155108480669?hash=item241d2f969d:g:lbQAAOSwAixi7tAw I have got an old set - happy to sell them for the same price with free postage Or I have an excellent new rep set with gold script £40.00 posted.
  27. Been away again so not had time to do much on the car but did buy an induction kit from an Audi from a local lad. Some small ammount of cutting and it was made to fit the Corrado so will have a lower intake temp now, not that the temp was that high before, about 5°C above outside temp so will be interesting to see any differences. Anyway, while I was away I was playing with this, which was nice
