Alfa 156 sportwagon, help needed sorting little niggles
Hi there, I have been absent from this forum for quite some time, mainly as I sold my 156 2.0TS....Long story short, I brought a Rover 416SLI for peanuts, my intention being to hang on to it until I could afford a new car (Have a baby on the way and the rover cost alot less to run) however the Rover had someone smash into the back of it and it was written off.
I was looking for a car and had only 2 days to find one before the insurance company took the rental away (61 reg BMW 118d!) I was looking at lagunas/scenics/mondeos ect.
BUT, just as I was about to go and buy a laguna I saw a Alfa 156 Sportwagon, 1.6TS, had a look and brought it!
All great news, but, there are a couple of small, but annoying problems that need fixing.
Here's a list:
Thermostat- Getting done next weekend
The bulb for the LCD display has blown (Milage clock) I need a guide on how to replace this
A very irritating squeek coming from the back somewhere, possibly suspension releated, ideas?
The parcel shelf thing is broken, the mesh guard thing works, but the cover for the boot is broken, so I cant leave anything in the boot as everyone can see in
The lights are not very bright, would changing the bulbs help?
Thanks in advance for any help, It's great to be back in an Alfa!
