ok so no play on front wheels, thinks knocking is further up near the bulkhead so ?? maybe steering column?? not had chance to check ticking/over run noise... but me thinks its not for this trip to the garage as the bill just got bigger..
3 months or so ago it was clutch and flywheel time this time it is new rad £170, new coolant bottle £30, now found out that fan switch may be faulty £36, and also both resisters and connections on the fans have melted and shorted
and the main fan is running hard/noisy. spoke to alfa and others for these omg
resistors £44 each, fan not sold sep so new cassette with both fans £290!!!!!!!!!
although just of the phone from alfacity
they advertise on ebay too, £85 delivered for a complete pack inc. resistors and fans and assembly
to alfacity, they've done me right a few times now.
