I need a DIY on replacing my passenger side window regulator.
I am going to change for winter tyres in a week or so, and i am going to pull all 4 rotors and clean the sensors thoroughly.
But i have discovered a trick to get the ABS working: when i start the car i press the brake pedal slightly at the exact same time as the e-brake light go out, and then i have working ABS! If i dont press the brake pedal the ABS light stays on.
Maybe i have some air left in the system? My ezibleeder cant take over 20 PSI pressure so maybe i have to get a brake bleeder that use more pressure to get the last air bubbles out? Or maybe i have to replace or make some adjustments on the rear proportioning valve?
Btw i have a 1989 model, and i have read here somewhere that pre 1990 models dont have a connection for scanning the brake system...
I've always been a bit curious as to what some of the differences are between G60 and VR6 body parts..
like the fenders, bumper and headlights..
I have a 91 G60, I got a VR6 hood for pretty much free, I can tell the obvious difference with the hoods. The g60 hood has an indented center section and the VR one is a little raised, looks much nicer. Also I already know about the foglights and turn indicator differences.
but whats the diff between fenders?? are the VR6 ones a little wider or are the wheel arches bigger to accommodate bigger wheels??
I see people selling G60 and VR6 specific e-codes too, whats the diff??
any helpful answers would be super appreciated, I dont know **** about corrado's so much, Ive been a mkv guy for a few years now..
Most is different because vr6 has a wider suspension known as plus suspension, amd 5 lug vs 4lug brakes.
Check the faq and search for the details on the rest, but yes, everything listed is different between the 2 specs.
I've got everything in order, he will stop by my supplier tomorrow. I had him get 3, so if you know anyone else that needs one, lemme know. I believe they will be $5 shipped each, but the supplier said the price went up slightly, we shall see tomorrow.
And ya, PSL didn't work out for Alex so far, I think he still has some stuff in the worx

just got a big box of parts to start fixing the headache that is my corrado hahaha.. i need to replace the master cylinder and its the one of the few things i havent had to do on any of my cars ever.. currently have a 93 corrado vr6 was wondering if anyone had a good DIY or and tips to make the job go as easy as possible
Novice Tip: if you have a broken sunroof, you might not want to hit 95 plus. I just might want to fly away!! On a different note my B4 sunroof assembly will be coming in on Monday, thanks to the forums I feel confident that the install should go without a hitch. BTW anyone know if the standard sunroof seal works with the glass one?
What did I get myself into???

Im gonna have to wait on a donor cluster, sunroof and the window regs are a must 1st (im getting rained on) sunroof on the way and the reg come next. Scoped out the A1 gonna order the set and tackle both. The list goes on...... I think ill start a thread and call it ."Common Corrado" love it though.
Found it on a lot....guy wanted a grand. But it was running weak, had a crazy idle. Checked the forums, came back knew what it was, took it home bout 6 bucks later had it running. Short ECU vac tube That was just the start. My plan is to put function first and do it while keeping it one the road. Going to do most of the work myself.
What did I get myself into???
love this thread.I am thankful it exists.
I am a new rado owner and wanted to know about the ac compressors for a vr6 and what models share the same one. Never see corrados at the junkyards but always see mk3 2.0's and b3 passats.

I've seen this video that explains how to assemle 3pc wheels when the centers are sandwitch mounted...seems obvious
But what about when the centers are front mounted? What is the correct process on this case? Just want to make sure that I haven't f@cked up...
so i pulled the authority chip that was in my ECU this evening since i think it was the cause of all my problems and grief (idle going crazy, pinging/knocking, etc)
1992 VR6 eurotech 264 cams, MSD 6A Ignition control box (Capacitor Discharge Coil) amongst other modifications
I put the ecu back together, reconnected the battery, open the door and the electricity works since dome light came on - go to crank the engine and i hear a crazy clicking sound from the fuse box area and now she wont turn over. headlights will turn on, internal electric still works. but the engine wont turn over.
did i do something wrong/forget a step in this? any idea? should this be in its own thread?
of note - i pulled the battery out when i pulled the ecu to clean under it and check for anything weird/strange underneath.
I also disconnected the heated windshield washer nozzles as i think they were also the root of fuse 14 constnatly shorting out - when i disconnected the drivers side nozzle, a bunch of water pour out (so maybe that was the problem).
found this thread on another forum ; will fiddle around w/ the relays but sounds just like what im experiencing.
