147 bonnet catch
hi, when i first got my alfa 147, i contacted an official alfa garage for a quote on a cambelt change (which i pursued with an independent alfa specialist instead), and after taking my registration plate they notified me that there was a recall on my car due to the bonnet catch being faulty.
Basically, on a lot of the 147s there are faulty bonnet catches where there is the risk of the bonnet opening on its own, which im sure you'll agree does not sound safe. Hence alfa are doing a recall, where they will replace the catch for free. Just ring them up and see if that is the case with your 147.
i got mine replaced for free...Happy days!!!
