Also I forgot to mention that all bar one were replaced under warranty,some were just out of warranty but were covered under goodwill by Alfa.one was over 4 years old and had over 100000 miles up so the customer naturally had to put his hand in his pocket.
That's not a bad record,I have no doubt that there is or will be some supplier who will produce tie rods for sale individually making it a less expensive fix.

Firstline do tie rods for 156 and Fiat coupe racks. It is possible they do them for the 159 as well.

They would be a bugger to change though without removing the rack.

Will it happen again?

Many thanks for the feedback, what are the chances of this happening again with a new steering rack?
Have they modified the rack (my car is only a 2009 model)?

Would like to hear from others who had the same problem and how many miles they have done on the second steering rack. (just so i can feel confident it will last a reasonable length of time)

Car sat in our warehouse until Desira Alfa Norwich can look at it next Monday.

Looking forward to getting it back.
