alfa 156 radiator
replaced my radiator on sunday after steam and water incident last week took all day to fit radiator,K+N air filter,egr blanking plates (1 of the bolts was a b*****d to remove) and anti freeze etc.
removed the fans and radiator with bumper in situ (would have had to remove intercooler and oilcooler before even getting to the bolts to remove the bumper.
as this is the giuguaro (proberbly spelt wrong) model the bumper fittings are different to the earlier models.
K+N makes a difference you can feel and the radiator works a treat (not a alfa genuine part)
the other radiator was knackered and most of the middle had blown out (see photos) and i am chuffed to bits to have done it a few bloody knucles but nothing to scary
cheers alfy and may.
