  1. Well it took a while to get top of my list again, broken solder joint where I'd slaved in the late interior switches... So I probably needlessly replaced the regulator mech, good job it was spare and not bought especially ... ALWAYS fault diagnose... don't assume 🙄🙄🙄
  2. Ahh those bits, got you 👍 Good here so far, it's rainy and I have tap issues here at the mo... Oh and I drive it for 40mins yesterday, stopped for fish n chips then had to get my partner to come out with a jump pack to start it..... Deffo some issue there, though no battery light 😒🙄🙄
  3. Yeah happy to mess about with multimeter and jump links, although I need the doorcard off anyhow cos it sounds like the yellow tip of the regulator frame is tapping on the door 🙄🙄 I thought there was some potentially tricky issue with the late switches 😉 Do the clips tend to break or what? Thanks for all the input peeps. I'll have a bash at shorting the plug and getting the motor moving. I still have the old motor so I could take that apart and try and revamp that if necessary. May well take Cressa up on the switch offer if that ends up being the only fix....I'd really like to mend what I have though!!!
  4. Cheers, I did this to my early switches but changed to a late interior some years ago. I'm having drivers window issues so looking at options. Was working after I changed the regulator, until I put the doorcards back on Not even getting a relay click now. The idea of buying a switch off ebay to fault find for £55-70 doesn't appeal!
  5. There definitely used to be a 'how too' on dismantling, cleaning & repair of early electric window and mirror switches many moons ago, I've looked but can't find anything for the later switches. Can anyone point me in the right direction please?
  6. I'm guessing it's not possible to delete the brown plastic fuel return line NRV on top of the swirl box and fit an online item because the box also utilises the return to the tank? I have a small cracking the rim where you can replace said NRV. Contemplating cleaning it all up and chemical metaling the bastard......
  7. All the headlining etc is out at the moment already - I was just wondering if I could source the problem in advance so I could drop it, fix it and refit in one go!! As I thought that's not an option! Buggerations I'm guessing a broken cable or such cos it won't manually shut either
  8. My Corrado has been sat for a long time with little intervals of use for various reasons and has had half the interior out for sometime because the sunroof broke just as it was closing from fully open, so it not only doesn't work, its bloody noisy too!! Now there are parts available (via K-rado) it might kick my arse into locating the issue. To that end if anyone can suggest how to remove the inner panel WITHOUT tilting it first I'd be very grateful, I'm not aware that it's possible... This would be at least give me a chance to try and reduce the wind noise and possibly confirm the issue without dropping it first. 😎😎

  10. Not to worry thanks Chris - Volksworld13 can make me one up. One less to worry about later 😉 cheers anyhow
  11. Hi I'm after the metal pipe from drivers front brake flexi hose to the caliper if you have one? £? posted to Kent please?
  12. Hi I'm rather urgently after the front right brake caliper metal pipe if you coud sort me out?? £? posted to Kent? Please!
  13. Well new lift pump fitted and all seems well, I tried con-checking the old pump but it seems pretty FUBAR-ed and open circuit. It was obviously on its way out big time when it was giving me gyp. As Toad said via FB the retaining ring was a big of a git, but loads of WD40 and a club hammer and screwdriver skilfully applied sorted it :bonk: I'd hoovered around the top of the tank and then again after applying the hammer! I had to cut off the hose clips on the two IN-OUT hoses and then another retaining the lift pump to some in-line valve/rubber device - I replaced all these with stainless steel jubilee clips. All in all a bit fiddly but no major dramas :)
  14. Cheers for that dannyboy I'm thinking new lift pump to be the way forward. Volvo MOT first thing (8am - what was I thinking!!) then Corrado time again!!
