Review: SEAT Cordoba (2003 – 2006)


A cheaper Ibiza with a huge boot and plenty of kit. Drives just as well and is solidly screwed together.

Not as practical as an Ibiza. Timing belt tensioners can fail on 1.4 and 1.6 16v engines.

Seat Cordoba 1996 - Brake Lights problem

I have a 96 N Cordoba and the brake lights are not working. Have checked bulbs and fuses and have also replaced the brake light switch but they still do not work.
Possibly the earths to the bulb carriers or the brake light switch. Or a broken cable from the switch to the light clusters.
