Upper intercooler hose 1.9 8v jtd 156 2003
I'm struggling to source an intercooler pipe for my 156 1.9 8v jtd it's 2003 pre face lift model.
I noticed a sense of no particular urgency at low revs and light throttle yesterday when we were out for the day.
Before I made the journey home I discovered a 2" split in the hose close to inlet manifold, I cleaned it up and taped it with duck tape and drop e home.
I noticed a slight improvement but not sure just how much difference it's made as the car is always driven carefully and never revved hard.
Got in it this morning and noticed an improvement again in low speed/low revs driving.
So I'm happy I found this problem which leaves me to find a replacement hose and finding out how to fit it and what to look out for, and if to 're use the existing hose clips.
Alfa workshop were very kind they gave me the part number 60676178 unfortunately they don't supply it.
I've seen one or two on ebay with this part number approx £30 just no sure of quality and alfa ask about £90.
Any advice e would be megga, also looking for a workshop manual.
Cheers so much guys
