159 2.0 jtdm leaking EGR cover

Hi all,

I have a 159 2.0 jtdm with leaking EGR cover. Occured near Bologna but nursed it back to London with regular coolant checks.

I wish to change it myself but can find no guide on how to do this. There's this thread http://www.alfaowner.com/Forum/alfa-...ml#post6789562 (Can any one tell me what this is?)

but that appears to be for a Guiletta. is a 159 the same?

Is there a workshop manual for the 2.0 jtdm?

Just had mine replaced few days ago, but unlike other cases where egr coolant case has cracked, mine didn't, but still has managed to develop a leak somewhere

Garage says that casing has probably lost its shape due to high temperatures or the seals have gone bad.

You have these two threads as a guide, but I recommend finding a garage to do it, since its a pig of a job. Also, if you had your egr blanked, you could just take the cooler off, but that another story.
