It happens to us all, my headlights packed in in the week, so I’ll be spending the afternoon finding out why this is.

My drivers side headlight packed in the other week mate, I replaced the yellow fuse inline on the uprated loom and relay and all good now thankfully. Also gave the contacts on the battery from uprated loom a good electric clean.

I’m hoping mines the same or a plug come loose. I found this out when going for a test run after changing rear discs and bearings, while doing this I also noticed that on one side the handbrake isn’t working properly so ideally need new callipers as well now, but they are 28 years old. Sometimes though it gets on your nerves.

Yep all extra money will going on my Corrado this year grump grump ha. The inline fuse water can get into the casing it houses into - I shrink wrapped my new one with electric tape, the handmade battery bags off ebay, if you could ask the seller to make a pouch on the front of the battery bag with a flap you could put all the relays and fuse in there to protect it.

Oh man, I just read your last update. That kind of made me sad to see you were considering selling the car. Why?? You've done so much work and a huge investment to get it to this point. It's one of the nicest car out there and I though you were going to keep it forever! Anyways, good luck with your next steps. Cheers

Very helpful skilled member off here  made me this as I destroyed my old one glueing it back on to the gearknob. Nice little mod at the bottom to match my decals. Numbers are the same as OE pattern.  Word of advise if your OE pattern falls of the knob replace it back on with double sided tape as normal liquid glue bleeds through to the pattern decal and bubbles it up.

Nice touch! I did the same with mine when I replaced the leather. Luckily managed to get one from eBay and used contact adhesive to glue it down. 👍

I stuck it back on then a few seconds later I thought never seen that mark on the pattern before before, then it just bubbled right in front of me and I swore loudly ha !

I can imagine! Swearing always helps relieve the stress of owning a Corrado when things don't go to plan - which is pretty often! 😆
