I live in New Zealand I dont own an Alfa Romeo yet but am looking at the 147. Most seem to be selespeed and I am concerned out the problem they seem to have. After lots of reading on this sit and others the problems seem simple enough to repair but living at the top of the world in NZ we are a little further from the parts suppliers so was thinking of getting some spares just in case.
It looks like simple fluid levels and annoying electrical connections cause lots of problems but it the actuator/accumulator that will cost me lots of money to repair if taken to the local garage for repair when i get suck in traffic on the way home from work.
Am i correct in assuming most selespeed faults are due to the accumulator rather than the actuator, so 80 pounds I can have some selespeed insurance.
Do the pumps fail too and can the parts be refurbished with seal kits etc.
