145 cloverleaf

145 VIN No locations

I am picking up a 145 cloverleaf with 67K on a 2000 reg tomorrow. Its a private deal, supposed to to have full Alfa service history and recent Cam Belt change. Price looks OK at 3k to reflrct the mileage

Any hints on what to look for........Variator? suspension bushes? ???

Where are the VIN No plates?

Re: 145 VIN No locations

VIN no is on the top of the right hand suspension tower, i.e. just in front of you if you stand next to the rh front wheel with the bonnet open - at least it is on my 1999 146.
Hopefully the variator and tensioners (cambelt and balancer shaft belt) will have been done with the cambelt.
Also worth checking that all the warning lights on the dash come on and then go off when they should (especially for the airbag and the injector symbol).
Enjoy your new car

Re: 145 VIN No locations

there is also some number stamped on a piece of metal under the carpet in the boot - as you look at the back of the car it's to the right of the wheel well, not sure what it is never looked at it enough, but VIN plate is under the bonnet can't miss it
