  1. Rear brake options for Corrado VR6

    I've got a mk2 so same rear brake setup, I bought 2 new refurbed mk4 calipers, and some goodridge conversion hoses. You use you std carriers and to be honest they are great, do the job very well with good quality discs/pads. other option is to fit lupo/6n2 polo gti rear hubs, then you can use the bearings with integrated hubs (like what fitted to mk4s etc) and then you get rid of the older type tapered bearings.
  2. Audi rear lights

    As long as you use a red bulb like you said then it will be perfectly legal. Other way is to use a tint spray on the reverse light
  3. DPF Removal

    You would need to gut or remove it at same time as mapping it out otherwise it will clog up due to no regen taking place, then its loads of back pressure, high egts and big issues.
  4. VR6 Loom into Mk2 (CE2) Deleting Aircon loom...

    You can seperate the engine and engine bay looms quite easily with the mk3. It involves cutting and replacing the plastic sheafing that goes around them but you'll see quite easily when you lay it out. For the ac, there will be an extra coolant temp sensor in the thermostst housing, its brown. Either leave it or remove and get a blanking plug. The ac wiring also goes to the fan controller resistor, but on mine I just left the ac plug off, the relay portion still works as intended (the ac plug is the multi pin one with smaller pins, the fan controller is the plug with the fatter wires) you can just chase the wires back and unplug them, or if your not going for a shaved engine bay they can just be left plugged in to be honest, if there is no ac compressor fitted and no button to press it will just stay dormant
  5. Starting troubles

    Very possibly bad earth, take battery and tray out and look at earth points underneath, also check the big fuses on top of battery for hairline cracks. After that, check the wiring to starter/alternator and look for any damage
  6. Mk1 golf abf gear change

    With him having a cable change abf and a clutch cable, I reckon he's using an 02a with SEAT Toledo/Ibiza cable mech that bolts into same position clutch slave does, then has an extra bracket on gearbox mount to hold clutch cable that then goes to standard mk1 clutch pedal.
  7. You only have to loosen back bolts about half way if you do end up needing clearance, but on my mk2 vr there looks to be 'just' enough space to clear with subframe in place, so I'd give it a go
  8. It will be tight but there is no harm in trying, worst case scenario is having to lower it a bit anyway, usually only a bit rather than fully off. It will prob have to come out at drivers side, don't think steering knuckle will clear diff/downpipe going the other way. what engine have you got? Might have to whip back engine mount off at drivers side and jack engine a bit too
  9. As long as you take track rod end off the hub but leave it otherwise as is, it should be close, you'll need to do hat otherwise the track rod won't spin off the rack. That being said odds of getting rack exactly in same position to the mm is probably impossible so it will probably need tracking checking after anyway. depends how old/expensive your tyres are, you could do as you say and if it drives straight leave it as is and check tyre wear
  10. Mk1 golf abf gear change

    Which one did you go for? People used to use 1.3 carb ones back in the day?
  11. Mk1 golf abf gear change

    Cables tend to wear on these setups, might be worth a new one, also check the condition of the shift levers and cable ends on top of the box, although I'd say they are less likely.
  12. Using iPhone in a seat Ibiza

    You just need the mmi to iphone cable then a 30 pin to lightning adaptor https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/142206434118
  13. 6 Branch - Heat Wrap or Not?

    I just wrapped mine near the steering rack where the 6 branches meet the collector, just to keep heat away from pas pipes/uj boot etc, its been on the car 9 years.
  14. Clutch help on 1.8t

    Clutch fork hasn't become dislodged/damaged in bell housing has it? Fyi I run 240 bhp/280ft/lb torque through a 180k mile original dmf and a recentish sachs std 1.8t clutch and it has no issues
  15. Budget Tyres

    What about splitting the difference and going for some mid range like avon, uniroyal, falken etc?
