  1. Got mine through the door today, too! Many thanks.
  2. Above the airbox (internal fan body area) there will be two studs pointing down from the horizontal part of the car body (under the windscreen). Two nuts hold the mounting plate up - they may even be plastic nuts?
  3. Found the setup image on google ( from the thread: G60 ABS Issue - Not the Usual - Drivetrain - The Corrado Forum (the-corrado.net) ) and the relay image from ebay ( https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/334259369727 ). The relay socket has a T-piece type affair which slots between the "fingers" of the mounting plate. It could be these are cracked and don't hold it in place anymore?
  4. There is a silver metal mounting plate that is bolted to the top of the bulk head and the relay wiring harness clips into the slots on the mounting plate. I'll see if I have a pic'...
  5. Have a look at Fender's post on the 288 Calipers - pad slap/clonk thread: http://the-corrado.net/topic/87422-288-calipers-pad-slapclonk/?do=findComment&comment=1038657
  6. Adding to Shaun, use a heat gun to get a little warmth in the plastic and slide the outside triangle off (toward the front of the car from memory). There is a flat plastic hook affair which slides into the metal door frame. Take your time and do not break it!
  7. There are two coolant temperature sensors - one for the gauge in the dash and one for the ECU. If you have VCDS see if you can see what temperature is being reported to the ECU? if they are similar the temperature is probably correct.
  8. They should all be the same. Have a look at a2resource.com:Central Electric 2 (a2resource.com)
  9. No, there is no self test feature for the brake system (the ABS does a self test). The brake system lamp on the dash is probably illuminated because the handbrake is applied. With the handbrake off (and brake fluid in the reservoir), the brake warning lamp in the dash is 'off' as you turn the key. The water and oil temperature lamps flash and the alternator light is 'on' until the engine is started. You could also place a paper clip (or a bit of wire) across the pins of the reservoir connector and check the lamp illuminates. Same with the handbrake connector...
  10. I'm not sure that disconnecting the connector from the brake fluid reservoir cap is the same test. With the float inside the reservoir pushing up against the cap, the "switch" in the cap is open circuit. Take the cap off completely and the float drops down the cap switch is closed. If you have a multi-meter, check the cap does switch. There is a button on the top of the cap to test it - but you need long arms or two people... On the base of the handbrake, there is a switch which has either fallen off (simply clips on) or broken. Again use a multi-meter to check the switch.
  11. Hmm interesting. What is the box under the seat? It looks aftermarket as it isn't part of the normal wiring looms...
  12. So you can visualise it, the parts page is: 1995 Volkswagen Corrado Europe market: Body Window glasses (oemepc.com) You can see the positioning wedges as item 16. The ebay item gets you items 11, 12, 13, and 14. I think the part number you supplied is item 14 here: 1995 Volkswagen Corrado Europe market: Body Radiator grille air guide grille (oemepc.com) I've only ever seen these broken, so don't really know how these fit to the three trim parts...
