Re: please help !! does anyone have instructions
It was fitted by Alfa to protect the exhaust from being squashed when the car bottomed out. However it is the first bit to touch down and transfers the whole force straight into the sump and thats what cracks the sump. Alfa stopped fitting it on later models but it really is a choice of cracked sump or squished exhaust. Squished exhaust won't ruin the engine, cracked sump might, so get rid of it. price wise i don't think there's that much between a new front pipe and a new sump, but the new front pipe is a lot easier to fit.
