Well, I fixed it. Thanks for the encouragement guys. It was the passenger ABS sensor. Got a replacment from ebay for £15. I got the car up on blocks today (makeshift axle stands). The old sensor was a biatch to get out (see attached). 4 pieces eventually as the metal had rusted to the hub. Oh, and I did need a hammer Laughing.

The the new one was a bloody tight fit too. Has gone in though and seems to have cured the problem. Will check the fixing of it in a few days when everything has had chance to have a run in and make sure the bolt is still tight.

Ans if he hammer doesn't work, it's an electrical problem!

Just bought a set of Erwin Bolt-grips of eBay for £15 delivered, and finally bought a breaker bar! Smile

Time for a small update. Mic has just upgraded his Corrado 24v VR with some fancy new 17" Rotas and AP 4-pots, so his old wheels were going spare, and I thought it would be rude not to put them on the VR. Nice to finally get shot of the scabby standard BBS wheels and fit something a little bit bit different. Excuse the state of the car, she needs a bit of a wash.....

Not a lot at the moment. Still plan to do the chains/clutch in the near future. Got a dodgy A/C pump too!

I'd love to supercharge it, but that's pie in the sky at the mo...
