Alfa Brera 2.2

2.2 JTS Spark Plugs - inlet manifold off?

Biongiorno! Come Vai Alfisiti?

Brera 2.2 JTS S with some 'jumpy' engine characteristics (lumpy jolts when lifting off). Timing chain replaced already. No warning lights or error codes anywhere...

I found that the bottom row of inlet manifold bolts had been left undone by whomever had done the last service/ replaced the timing chain. I torqued them back up but the engine is still lurching on lift off. Slipping the clutch seems to help a bit.

Just looking at 'whipping' the plugs out to inspect condition but ran into snag. Seems that the inlet manifold might have to come off to get proper access - am I right?

Has anyone done a 'how to' for the 2.2? Found a 3.2 V6 guide already.

No do not remove the inlet manifold.
The spark plugs are under red cover on the top of the engine.
Remove the red cover and then remove the coil pack bar and you will see the plugs,It is a easy job to remove and replace plugs on the 2.2 JTS.
