Alfa Romeo 146ti Replace Rear Seats ? !!
Hey Peeps ;-)
I am putting my wonderful Alfa 146ti through a makeover ready for the endless sunny summer days we will have next year ;-) !!!! I am wondering if
1) Anyone has ever replaced the rear seats in an Alfa 146, and if so is it a fairly easy job? (I have a torn cartlidge in my right wrist which makes it kinda useless at moment)
2) Does anyone know of any 146's breaking with rear seats available ? I have had a look on the forums here and on ebay and got a few leads, but though I would throw it out see if anyone can help ?
The car has done around 84k now so looking to have Cambelt change (probably going to see if alfaworkshop can do it as they seem to have endless happy customers)
Just had 4 new tyres fitted and forgot how great it is to drive round the country lanes round Reigate. I have owned it for 2yrs now and tbh it has been pretty faultless (touch wood) apart from a locking problem. When the drivers door opened, the central locking would lock / un-lock about 10 times. Took it to the old Sidlow in Gatwick who said it would need new locking system and quoted me some silly price.... then during a golf game mentioned it to a guy and he said check to see if the door has dropped ?? !! Sure enough, un-beknown to me the drivers door hinge weld had cracked slightly so when I opened in the slight drop caused the central locking to operate. Into car bodyshop, quick weld and £50 later.. ALL FIXED ;-)
Any advice on the rear seats would be gratefully received ;-)
