  1. Vw corrado vr6 steering wheel

    So I'm missing the original steering wheel off my vw corrado vr6 Yr 1995 and have looked at purchasing one but I have found a couple of variations, which is the correct period steering wheel??
  2. Vw corrado vr6 steering wheel

    So after one hour three minutes on hold I finally got speaking to a real live person on PayPal and they agreed that my claim for the steering wheel was valid and I received the refund [emoji857]
  3. Starting issue

    So corrado vr6 was turning over but wouldn't start so I changed the fuel filter and then changed the crack shaft sensor still wouldn't start I was also having problems with the abs light staying on and brakes not pumping correctly So after more online searching I heard mention of the ignition switch and as it happens I had bought one ages before so decided to fit. It took me a good 2 hours as for most part I didn't realise you can actually see the screw holding switch in place if you look down the LHS of steering column when covers are removed, so fitted new switch and the dash lit up like a Christmas tree with lights I've never seen Before, and car started on first turn of the key. And the all important ABS light went out as it should even the brake pedal feels a lot firmer. HAPPY DAYS....
  4. Vw corrado vr6 Yr 1995 has suddenly got a starting problem so I've had to turn the key 8-10 times and the starter is turning over fine but won't start then boom she fires up and drives fine. Maybe a fuel issue but the pump must be working if car keeps going after start up, Any thoughts??
  5. Starting issue

    I've just ordered a tool for pulling the plug leads out as don't want to damage, she's had new plugs and leads about 2k ago The thing getting me is that once started spark and fuel are good. I'm limited to what I can do myself and 2 mechanics I've spoken to have gave me advice but didn't seem keen to look at it [emoji849]
  6. Starting issue

    So car was hard to start today again but did start and drove 100% however after parking and then trying to restart NOTHING just keeps turning over but won't fire up.
  7. Starting issue

    £13.13 for a new fuel filter and boom the vr6 is back to life and engine is running Tip-top, teasing the 25+ year old nuts that hold the filter housing in place was tight but I soaked well before attempting. Fuel filter on a vw corrado vr6 is underneath car at rear of drivers side and easy to access on basic car jacks, though I also put an axle stand in under car [emoji106]
  8. Starting issue

    So I've spoken to a mechanic who has said to get the fuel filter changed out so that will be my starting point [emoji618]

    Can't say atm as I will be contacting my bank next week, maybe the business is closed due to the health scare but they have still taken my money and the steering wheel is still up for sale [emoji34]

    Get the rado mot'd and taxed before show date and I'll drive, if not I'm thinking of going on train then I can sup on a few pints.
  21. fleetys rado vr6

    This is my latest classic vw which I bought roughly this time last year, since then I have installed new coil over suspension, side skirts, 90mm lip spoiler, set of pressed plates and rear bumper extension. Have an eyelid grill still to be painted and maybe fitted, not sure yet as i like original. As you reading can probably guess im new to this forum so here's hopefully a few pictures of my latest vw.
