I got the front anti-roll bar off, but...
Was really dreading doing this job, but stage one is complete! I managed to remove the front anti-roll bar, but before I fit the new Eibach one that arrived today, I have a couple of questions that I hope someone may be able to help me with...
I did make quite a shocking discovery whilst removing the crossmember, and that was that one of the 15mm bolts that bolt through the crossmember (on the offside) to the floor was actually missing!
Secondly, the nearside handbrake/gear lever mounting nuts and bolts (I'm pretty sure that's what they are) were also missing!
I have included a photo illustrating what was actually missing and where. The red square shows where the 15mm bolt in the crossmember should have gone, the blue square shows where the nuts and bolts (and oval mounting plate???) should have gone.
I can get these parts from Alfa Romeo direct, the only downside being that I have to buy them in stupid quantities, like packs of 5 or whatever they were!
I didn't know if anyone was breaking a 156 and actually has these bits readily available, if anyone has, could they please get in touch as I really need to get the car back together asap!
