Daft question of the day thread - alfa 147
Doing the belts, etc in July as I'll be flush with money by then and I'm also doing the water pump and aux belt.
Now, from what I can remember when the belts, water pump, variator, etc were done in 2010 the engine I have in my 147 is from a 156 (apparently Alfa fitted 156 engines to some 147's). So I've got to order a water pump for a 156 engine. Now, as my car is registered as a 147 obviously using my reg to order the correct parts wouldn't work and I'd end up with a 147 water pump.
So, question is - do I use the VIN plate to order the part or something else? My mechanic done it last time but I'm ordering the parts myself (or the water pump & aux belt at least).
