Re: GTA back in today
I spoke to an Alfa technician about this issue last year.
He acknowledged that it is a known issue with the GTAs, but that it has never happened with the 3L V6 GTV, which uses exactly the same discs & calipers (shared components).
However, looking through the parts CD I've noticed that the 147GTA, 156GTA & 3L V6 GTV all use different compound Brake Pads.
So the Brake Pads are the only difference between the three setups.
Those of you that have had replacement brake parts fitted, do you know the part numbers of the disc & pads that have been used?
(note these are from an Oct'2002 CD.)
p/n 9949533 156GTA @ £54.09
p/n 9949509 147GTA (replaced by 9949533 156GTA @ £54.09)
p/n 9950812 GTV V6 @ £93.75
So it looks like the GTV comes with higher quality pads as std...
