  1. No, sorry - I'm after the full cassette

    Sunroof / moonroof

    After a sunroof in classic green or any dark colour or a moonroof many thanks
  3. Apologies for the delay in paying for this, you should have my money now though
  4. the only way i could get mine out was to use a long drill and some patience
  5. Another thing to remember is that it's a favourite trick of the corrado to self destruct a part of itself every time you buy it a present
  6. My advice before any sort of "tuning" is to get the car solid and reliable as minor problems very quickly turn into major ones on these cars. KR cams are known to be the best for a slight performance gain but it'll be worth doing the cam belt, tensioner cam cover gasket, etc. It's often best to go for genuine VW parts, if you can blag yourself a TPS account (VW suppliers), even better!
  7. i sandblasted mine, came up lovely
  8. Sorted! definately moves a lot better now
  9. Right, i've taken apart and lubed up the indicator switch but i'm having problems assembling the main beam switch. i didn't pay enough attention when taking it apart and i'm now unable to get the little white rocker doofer back into place... it looks like it should sit into the top of the black bit, but it wont (obviously i'd already put the black bit behind the slider)! any help would be much appreciated
  10. Yeah, the hazard switch mechanism is exposed on the back of the stalk ring so nice and easy to clean up
  11. Did my headlight switch the other day and i'm now doing the stalks... Do you know if there's any way of making the main beam switch less stiff and operate more smoothly?
  12. Current retail £93.37 +VAT!!

    ignition switch

    potentially - its worth changing anyway if it hasn't been done already, get a genuine one though It could also be something to do with the immobiliser as you say the car is starting and then failing... possibly a combination of the 2
  14. The price last June was £88.15 +VAT retail (£105.78 inc VAT @ 20%) Best trade price was £80.66 +VAT i'll have a look tomorrow when i get into work to see the current retail price
  15. (with discount and without VAT though)
  16. Right! Finally got somewhere after getting the statutory "The DVLA doesn't make mistakes, sir" email. The VIN is indeed incorrectly noted in the V5C. All I need to do is send them the corrected V5, photo evidence and a covering letter. Hopefully that'll put my car back up on other websites correctly!
  17. Yep, lights out - it'll be worth sorting it out in the long run
  18. So, would this mean contacting the DVLA?
  19. definitely possible but it's been the same for the last 2.5ish years at least
  20. Hi All, I bought a MkIV Golf last year. All car checks came back fine and the dvla website has it correctly listed but no other website (insurance, ecp, etc) can find any records of the car. My main concern is that if i sell the car that potential buyers are going to be put off. any ideas why the information doesn't appear? Thanks
  21. Irwin bolt grippers and a bit of patience http://www.amazon.co.uk/Irwin-Bolt-Grip-Remover-Expansion/dp/B000QW6K8I
  22. Yep, cut the existing one off the wire and crimp on a female spade.
