Re: 2.0 TS Oil Change
Ok, the 1.8's sump plug (which is smaller than the 2.0 sump plug - not sure if this is due to the engine size or year*) is an M9 ribe. The 2.0 takes a 12mm allan-key bit.
If you're considering doing any work on Alfas, invest in a set of ribe bits. It's essential. I got a 22-piece set (10 x short bits, 10 x long bits, 1/2" drive adapter and 1/4" drive adapter) online for about £18. Can't remember where from though...
You need extra-long ones if you ever want to take the sump off as well!
* 1.8 was a W/2000, 2.0 is a T-reg (97/98 afaik). Pretty sure my 1999 1.8 is a ribe as well.
