Drove the Corrado around on the 4th, then dove into it on the 5th. It's getting:
  • complete engine rebuild - all parts are at the machine shop currently
  • converted from distributor vr6 to a coilpack vr6, including the engine harness - donor was a '95 Passat
  • LSD install in the original transmission
  • pads and rotors, and converting the rear calipers to mk4 rear calipers
  • axles
  • complete tie rods
  • ball joints
  • sway bar bushings/links
  • fix radio wiring since it was originally an Aktiv car and the wiring is a disaster. It's currently a 2 channel setup with everything on the front two channels. No rear channels at all.
  • another attempt at fixing the ABS by replacing the entire ABS harness. Only codes that it has come back as being a wiring issue.
  • Replacing the heater box since I broke the one in the car when I put a heater core in it 8 years ago :facepalm:

I need help, on my way home from work I had an axle bolt fall out and that meant the axle bolt plating bracket to swing down and hit things as the wheel turned. Now there is some dark grey grease around that bolt. What is that?? Can I simply get a new axle bolt and bracket or does the grease signify some more damaged?

If anybody is interested in a 2010 Jetta Wolfsburg, I posted it over in Southeast Cars and Golf V/Jetta V Classifieds. Let me know if I can't post this here.
