While avoiding the floods in East Devon yesterday I managed to run over something that has cracked the sump. The car is dripping away its lifeblood, leaving a nasty stain wherever it sits.
I know that the 2.4 diesel does sit fairly low in a 156 Ti and that ground clearance is pretty pants, frankly. Monza sport are talking about being able to weld the sump rather than replacing it. Given the price of a new one, I'm all in favour. But I would ask the collective if there is anything that can be done to improve ground clearance? I have heard of people replacing the plastic sump guard with a metal one just to add a bit more protection. Is there such a thing available as a smaller sump?
