Alfa 159 JTD Clutch & DMF
Hi My 159 had done 104,000 before the Clutch had started slipping, As I'm in Cornwall I had limited garages to use. I shopped around, the Local Alfa Dealer in Truro were quoting about £1250 with a Recon DMF! I took my 159 to Powell's Garage Ltd at Barncoose Industrial Estate, Redruth, Cornwall TR15 3RQ, they did a fabulous job, it took them 1.5 days to do, I had a courtesy van. They replaced the Clutch, DMF with new LUK parts, i asked them to check the front sub frame - they found some corrosion so it was removed and rust proofed. one of my rear wheels was not going round smoothly, they stripped it down and found the rear brake pads were worn on the inner side and needed replacing, as the pads were not available they put it back together. I went to pick the 159 up, I was pleasently surprised as they had washed the 159 thoroughly - even the horseshoe alloys were mint.
They quoted me originally £1051.00 and thats what they charged me even after the extra work done. I highly recommend them as they did this at short notice. My local Alfa specialist in Long Rock was booked up for 2 weeks.
