Having bought both from dealers, the abs sensor will cost about €50 and a coil pack is about €90. Havent fitted the abs sensor yet, the coil pack is a 2 min job.

Otherwise try Alfa Romeo Parts and Alfa Romeo Spares from EB Spares - Specialist Alfa Parts Dealers for parts, just have your chassis number ready to get the correct abs sensor

1. abs sensor is held in with a 10mm headed bolt.... be careful opening it as the bolts are often rusty & snap off so be prepared for that scenario

2. you could buy a used part from RWGM, send him a Private Message

the wipers have failed during this latest cold snap for a few of us on here.
you need to replace teh wiper motor which some say costs £50
or open the motor up and chech teh wires and connections inside. one guy fixed it this way.
