  1. I love a MK2 (can't afford one these days), but there's no comparison between the Corrado and a more door? My Corrado is sulking (6 years standing) and won't start ATM
  2. Have you tested yours? They give a small voltage dependant on oxygen level in the exhaust gasses. If it's 4 wire, one pair will be for a heater to help warm up and quicker function. Lambda and MAF / MAP are linked, codes for one often end up being the other as the "dumb" ECU uses best guesses, it's up to the tech to use his wily skills to determine which if any are faulty. Check wiring and plugs for security and cleanliness.
  3. Go to your nearest windscreen fitter and give him a drink in exchange for his glue?
  4. Set up a company to “export” (paperwork exercise only) such cars, when you’ve made your first million remember me please £££s
  5. Still here, check in every day
  6. I click "All Activity" (top left lower) for new posts and other happenings
  7. If you're going up sizes of fuses you need to carry a spanner to remove the battery negative terminal should smoke or fire appear (tape it to the battery for quick access). It could be the fans are consuming more power than intended? It could be high resistance wiring connections contributing to current draw? It could be that getting the fans moving its taking extra current draw to spin them up? You can buy mini MCBs to replace fuses - reset rather than replace. I'd measure current draw with the fans running, if it's less than the fuse rating, you may be getting a spike in current draw spinning the up from stall? A 10A draw would need a 20A fuse to be reliable and safe?
  8. Fpr is just a preset spring loaded ball valve, you would be better testing the pressure it’s currently working to rather than fitting a Chineseum replacement?
  9. Can you post a pic? Google any part numbers or brands on it?
  10. There's a screen on the bottom of the pump, so at worse the broken plastic will just reside in the tank. How many intact at installation have now cracked in service? It would bug me paying full price for "seconds" though, maybe ask for some discount?

    Horn not working

    You may well get 12v at the horn wiring disconnected, if there is a break or corrosion to prove it you need to load the circuit, a bulb is a good load as it will be dim if there’s an issue with switches, relays or wiring itself. you could open the relay and clean the contact on the heavy current side

    OEM Radio

    Be careful with the console, they break easily and cost lots if in A1 condition Maybe your has been repaired previously?

  16. If this was me I’d unplug the fans, replace the fuse and test drive. If the fuse remains intact it’s something to do with current draw of the fans themselves. if the fuse burns, you have a wiring issue (the power consumers were disconnected).
  17. You lift the tailgate, the struts only hold it in the up position

    Solid air inlet elbow

    You could dent the pipe to miss the tower? Masking tape the pipe mark the impact position Hold a piece of round bar against the spot and hit the bar with a hammer (you could fill the pipe with sand to prevent depressing the pipe too much - rinse out well afterwards). Re-polish Tip to cut the pipe squarely - wrap a piece of paper tightly around it. If the silicon fits well on the now shortened pipe you won't need a flare as it doesn't hold boost and therefore won't pop off.
  19. Just a warning re wanted ads and pms, be careful who you deal with, scammers are here now. Only trade with people in the open forum, use PayPal goods and services
  20. It’s one of the good things about this forum that conversation is allowed to meander off topic.
  21. He means the sort that you could use to track a stolen car. I use waze too, it’s great as you say
  22. It's better to seek forgiveness than ask permission - at one point I had 7 cars, when it got a little frosty I'd just go outside for a little warm.
