I have had two 156`s in my time and love the car so much.
I have recently found a nice example of an 03 plate in very good condition (156 Veloce) and at a great price, however there are three issues i have and i hoped that some of you learned readers could help ?!
1, The car has done 117,000 miles and has a full service history in terms of stamps in the manual, however the dealer has no record of when the cambelt was last changed. Would the cambelt be changed at every service ? Hocw can i get an idea of when it was changed ?
2, The drivers side wing mirror is loose. It basically swivels on an 180 degree arc both towards the drivers window and away from it. Is this a big job, what typically would i have to do to fix this ?
3, The bottom skirting running below the drivers door and passengers door is coming away from the chassis. What is the best way to fix this ?
Ok, so i am new here and i apologise for the bombardment of information via my questions, but i really like this car and would like to get it, but i just want to get an idea of whether it is easy to fix and obviously having owned alfas before, i know the cambelt story is crucial here...
Thank you for you help in advance
