147 Top Hose
So my partner's Twin Spark blew all its water on the motorway. Fortunately she was paying attention and got it shut down fairly quickly so no damage
She called the AA and the guy turned up, diagnosed the top hose and found the split about 15mm in, so he cut off the offending piece and pushed the hose back on.
It's fine and the car doesn't lose water but the hose is fairly tight (nothing to worry about but I would like to replace it sooner rather than later).
So I started down the road of calling all the UK Alfa dealers.. no joy, there is not a 2003 147 1.6 TS top hose in the UK within the official network so it's 5 days ex-Italy!
I also called The Alfashop in Norfolk, nope!
Anyone got any sources who 'might' have one on the shelf?
