[QUOTE=alfadan123;2694816]Same thing I believe. Sorry for the news.
Alfa say every 36,000 miles/3 years when all belts should be changed.
Not sure if mine's been done - trying to get info from owner before my brother, so at 63k worrying (you understand, sleepless nights, dry mouth, jumping at any noises!) but don't really want to spend ££££ if not needed vs huge expensive if it goes as illustrated.
No reliable way of checking I'm afraid, my 156 is now due at both 3 years and 36,000 miles (so both recommended age and mileage) since the last belt change. I've stopped using it, and won't use it until it gets changed now, it's just not worth the destruction that goes on when they strip their teeth.
I had a TS GTV that stripped teeth off it belt and I have to say the belt looked perfect other than a few missing teeth. if it were mine at 63k, I'd get it changed or stop using it.
I prefer my cars to be Alfa's, and my computers to have no Windows.
