Brera Jobs

Hi everyone,

I'm new here and liking the forum!

I just made an impulse buy on a 2007 Brera, 2.4 JTD. She has high mileage but runs and drives sweet. It came with service history like War and Peace so I know she's been looked after.

It had the cold start coughing and spluttering for 5-10 second problem, which it appears quite a few people with the diesel engine have. I took the EGR valve off and cleaned it, following a recommendation from someone on this site, with Wynn's EGR aerosol cleaner put some Wynn's injector cleaner in with 35l of diesel and it worked a treat. I'm well chuffed!

I have some bits that I want done and wondered if you guys would put some rough figures on them from experience?:
1. Cam belt and water pump change
2. Very squeaky front drivers side suspension. I had the same problem with my 147. Drove me crackers!
3. Thermostat replacement.

Thanks for any responses.

Any garages recommended in SE London might be handy too. I took the car to Gonella Brothers today in Catford who specialise in Alfas, Fiat and Lancia. Im waiting on their quote...

Check the condition of your front subframe. I wire brushed mine and then painted it today. A job well worth doing as they can rust bad enough to fail MOT's.
