Time for some maintenance.. Few Q's!
Well - the Alfas a little poorly, and needs some TLC. I am just looking at getting some advice from you guys. If you could provide experiences with products you've used, and where you have purchased them - that would be great! I usually use the Alfa workshop for parts.
1. Front break pads; would you stick with genuine Alfa or try something new? I'm not looking for anything special.
2. Variator - I have to admit, when I purchased - I was quick to change the cambelt, pump and the like - but didn't know much about the variator. As it now sounds like a diesel on start-up, it's defo in need of change. Can this be done without changing the cambelt; as the belt is only 6k miles old.
3. Creaking from passenger side. Upper wishbone was done last December, creaking like a chicken is back. It's worse when at slower speeds and locking the wheel over; any ideas?
I think that's all I can manage this month as she's just been serviced and thermostat replaced. 2014 has been an expensive year so far!
