Sorry to hear you've suffered vandalism, I know how it feels, I've had my car keyed three times

I can't help you with the badge though.. Welcome to AO

Re: fitting a boot badge on a 156

If you have hands as small as Jeremy Beadle. Dead easy.

If, however, you have normal hands, VERY fiddly. You will also need help as it is next to impossible to hold everything in place while you fit the circlip on.

I did it in 40 mins with help. AFTER spending an hour cursing and losing the circlip twice inside the double bootlid skin.

Good luck.

I've got large hands but did it in about 15 mins - fiddly but not difficult - maybe just lucky

Re: fitting a boot badge on a 156

easy enough, really long pliers help, undo the 4 screw type plasic barbs that hole the boot liner to the part of the boot closest the lock, pull it back a bit and you can see the inside of the lock body, its the stalk at the bottom (with the boot open) getting the clip off is easy just dont let it escape inside the boot lid. at the same tiime as the clip tries to run a spring and little bowl washer will fly off, you normally find yourself pickng these out from under your eyelid! its getting the spring washer and clip back on, if you hold the washer and spring back with pliers, then get someone with small hands to put the clip on, its quite a quick job.

my alfas got an electrical niggle, con rods punched a hole in the cd player, can anyone help?

Try this link Alfaman. The first job I did was replace my boot badge. I drilled out the bolts and replaced the whole unit. Anyway I took some pictures and did a little how too and Bigfoot kindly posterd it for me as was having problems uploading the pics myself.

Hope it helps (How to: Rear boot badge replacement guide)

Only thing I would add is to stuff lots of rags into the double skinned boot areas because you will drop the circlip. I have a couple of those 'telescopic magnet' thingys too which are very useful for circlip recovery.
