Nearly sorted – what a long journey this has been!

Got to the bottom of why the newly fitted bush was rattling around the rear hub – they heated the bush to make it fit, and this damaged it as it is aluminium. They have now fitted a new bush and all seems well – the steering wheel is always at the same wrong angle, meaning the rear suspension should be now nice and solid.

As the last alignment was done with a hub at a jaunty angle, to the point the wheel bearing on the other side has been bashed around, the handling at present is very – er – unusual. Hopefully a good alignment will get everything as Alfa intended!

Ps – got the wheel bearing fitted for ฃ123 all in (including rectifying the dodgy bush which was, mercifully, gratis )

Glad to hear the car is (nearly) sorted Wlimslow

Hope it gets to "perfection" quickly and not too expensively.

Keep us posted!
