Re: Alfa 166 3.0 Super clutch
Tom& Phil at BLS in Lincoln (30+years of Alfa experience) assure me they can do a 164 clutch by unbolting the gearbox and moving it into the wheelarch. I can't remember if the suspension strut had to come off or not but..they are ever so helpful (and terribly busy..Mrs A booked the SW in for a service yesterday) so why not ring them..or get your mechanic to ring them for the full method.
Defo no engine out. They charged me £360 labour to swap a tranny in my 164 V6 (I had a spare box) so it need not cost the earth just to do a clutch. BLS on 01522 531529
