Hey guys, I am new here. I am Skip (not my real name) from the Netherlands, my big passion has always been motorcycles and have had a lot of them, but now I own my first fast car, and I love it. So I bought a Leon Cupra 4 with the well known 2.8L VR6, it's got 186K kilometers on the clock and is in a generally good condition. The previous owner was a chain smoker and messed up any electronics and or wiring he touched, nothing I can't fix. I'm an aircraft mechanic and have been working on airplanes for 10 years now, also I have a lot of experience working on motorbikes (old and new), some cars and a whole host of industrial machines. So I know my way around a spanner I just have very little real experience working on cars. My goal is to fix up this car, learn how it works, make it better, and within a year or two, have it make 400WHP by installing a turbo (thats the goal at least, a man can dream) The previous owner installed lambo doors, I would have bought the car if it hadn't had these doors. At first I thought I was going to replace this system for normal hinges, but I have received overwhelmingly positive reactions to it, and I got used to them, they will stay. When I bought it, it came with an K&N filter system, Lambo doors, nice new style Cupra wheels but no further mods. The seller did replace the coils, front grill, mirrors and battery, so that's nice So in the last 10 days I have cleaned the interior twice to get rid of the smoke smell, it's totally gone now. Underneath I will make a full list of what is wrong with this car, and in this thread I will keep track of my learning process and successes and failures. Defects when bought: (I paid a very low price for this car) - Rear RH suspension making loud noise when going over a bumb - Aircon not working - Climatronic only blowing air hotter than the core of the sun - Probably the motor fans not working properly (the well known resistor problem) - Cigarette lighter not working - LH rear door interior light missing - Roof trashed due to smoking, needs replacement - Armrest broken and squeaks like crazy - Rear windows not going down. - Rear window wiper washing fluid not working - Front interior light not working - Headlight adjuster mechanism missing. - Battery cover not attached to anything - Lambo doors need adjusting Yep...that's quite a list, but it has relatively low mileage, the engine and drive train all seem to be in excellent condition, and the price was fair, so I bought it anyway. During the last 10 days I fixed the following: - Cigarette light fixed; wiring was cut...why? - RH rear interior light fixed; I just hit it a couple of times with my fist, always works! - RH rear window goes down now, I heard the relay clicking. I loosened up the motor and it started working. - Climatronic hot air issue kind of resolved; I know what the problem is, explanation will follow. I took it to a garage to check the underside of the car, all was fine and the banging noise seems to be coming from worn rear track control arm bushings. I am ordering new bushings but it seems to be impossible to find the bushing on the outer (wheel) side. Anyway, thats it for now, updates will follow soon.
