Re: Spectacular MOT failure....

Take a look on alfisti.net, becuse to fix you steering rack there is only 43 or 86 if on both sides: italia Ricambi - Axialgelenk innen rechts & links Alfa 166 5031013

Hope you get her fixed soon and not so expensive.

Re: Spectacular MOT failure....

Good news!

Collected all the bits I needed, did the brakes, my garageman was a bit reluctant to drop the subframe for the ARB as the ali bolts looked a bit like they might strip. He thought the bush wear was minimal anyway so we chanced it - result - not even a advisory, seems like the first MOT people tried to mug me. Same for steering rack tie rod joint although got an advisory for that.

Just need a rear number plate now for retest tmrw, mines all gone black!

Total cost £300 - bit different from the £1400 I was quoted from the the first lot...
