Re: GTV help!
tough one about the windscreen. cant decide for you without seeing the problem...BUT he was probably talking crap, and over exagerating the problem.
id suggest seeing if you have a local mobile paintman who operates from a van (chipsaway are nationwide). they will come and view the problem, and advise. even if they cant fix it, they will tell you its severity.
the fuseboard problem - Search the net for alfa breakers, there is one called 'just alfas' who is very helpful, and tends to have a good selection of parts. they also sell on ebay.
wheel bearing - are you CERTAIN its the front bearing? they fail rarely, and its much more common for the rear bearings to fail. Have it checked properly if you havent already. should be able to hear rumbling noises when turning the wheel by hand.
