156 Workshop Manual

The Alfa is such a pleasure to drive when all is well, not fast but a tactile and visual delight so I want to sort out the reliability as well. I have bought a couple of CD manuals off ebay and they're cr*p. Can anyone recommend a really good workshop manual download with plenty of pictures/diagrams and full info re tightening torques ans stripdown sequences? This is the first car I've owned that Haynes don't do a manual for.

Re: 156 Workshop Manual

There's only two CD based programs: DTE and elearn. DTE was the original system and not really easy to install or use, then this became the elearn web version which is easier to install and use. Neither have everything and often have gaps, but then you have to remember that this is proprietary software and we shouldn't have it anyway! If when it installs it creates a C:\DTE folder, then this is DTE. elearn is a bi more flexible and also covers more models inc GTA.

You only other alternative is to look at the hardcopy manuals sold by EB Spares, but these are expensive and available in several volumes ...

Like you said, no Haynes for the 147 or 156. Apparently, Alfa didn't sell enough to make it worthwhile.

I've been bitten by manual on ebay too ... for my Pug 206. What I ended up with was a random array of screen shots, which didn't cover the complete car and we next to useless. That's one of the big problems with ebay ... you are never really sure what you get until it turns up and you have little come-back on the seller.

cheers, Gary
