did an oil change last night ,
I managed to get the use of a friends pit . bloody good job !! the under tray on the 159 is a reet pig t get off ,
even tho I had previously loosened half the screws etc . the rear riv nuts need replacing as they are well seized .
changed the air filter while I was there , what a complete arse of a place to put it ( 2.4) , poxy 7 mm self tap type screws and the lid aint exactly easy to winkle out of the confined space .
oil filter location a bit odd and awkward to get at without making a reet old mess ,o things too .
I love my alfa but some of the fastners and location of key parts for maintenance are just crap .
my sons b$w 320 ci is an absolute breeze to work on compared , but then it hasn't got the latin good looks and every buggers got one .
its also going in to autolusso to be polybushed and EGR delete tomorrow .
