So I'm finally getting around to replacing all the coil packs, having exhausted all other options trying to resolve this problem
. To get to them I'll need to remove the intake manifolds and therefore replace the gaskets.
The trouble is no one seems to have them.. Euro's have them on back-order, with no ETA. So I went to Alfa Romeo directly.. same story. No dealers in the UK have them, and their warehouses show no stock in the UK or Italy. No ETA. I then started hunting around the internet and found a couple of eBay shops (with 30,000+ and 60,000+ positive feedback) who claimed to have them in stock. One after the other they turned out to not actually have them, refunded me, but several weeks on I still have no gaskets.
I've since been in touch with various specialist parts dealers.. AlfaWorkshop.co.uk, Desira, Ricambio, etc.. the list goes on. None of them have any, or know anyone who does.
I can't believe this £15-£20 part is stopping me. I'm at a loss here. Any thoughts / secret parts stashes / expertise in making gaskets to order are all welcome!!
