manual wanted for 156

Hi there, wondered if anyone knows where I could download a manual for my 156's. I have a 2003 156 twinspark and a 2001 sportwagon, any help would be great thanks.
Also I am just about to do the back pads on the sportwagon, any nasties I should know about!

hi vitesse (thats not a name i've heard for a while!)

a lot of folk, including myself, use a disc format manual called elearn.

theyre not bad, quite detailed pictures, just a ad fiddly to use and get used to the menus, but cheap and efffective for pretty much all jobs you'd dare to tackle yourself.

not sure about anything on paper, if haynes or clymer don't do it, i'd deffo look for the elearn disc.

as for the rear pads, i'm not 100%, but i think the rear calipers are wind in rather than push in, which complicates matters a tiny bit.

ive never used the right tool yet, i get by with a G clamp with a free knuckle end that allows it to spin and push at the same time.

if theyre not wind in i'm sure someone will correct me?

Thanks guys, would still like to get a hold of paper manual if poss. rear brakes were easy, no special tools needed. on my model it was 17 mm ring spanner, was pretty difficult to access bottom bolt but patience is a virtue! didn't need to renew pads, squeking was caused by pads been put in without ht grease. if someone is doing this job for you make sure they use ht grease. you haven't heard from me for a while cause alfas are so reliable!!!

No haynes book for the 156 sadly.

I guess there isn't enough paper left
