147 sele

Help Alfa 147 2.0 sump replacement process

Due to a comedy of driving errors, my 147 2.0 sele needs a new sump and downpipe (incl cat).

I think I'll fit a sump from a breakers - but can anyone advise how complicated the fitting process it? Is this something I could do myself, or is it a big hassle. If the latter, any idea how many hours it should take a garage? Is it something that a general repair place could manage, or would it need to go to an Alfa guy?

Oh, it also needs new airbags as well, but that's a topic for another day...

Thanks in advance...

Re: Alfa 147 2.0 sump replacement process

Shouldn't be too big a job, remove the downpipe, support the engine, unbolt the mount and the bolts that go into it from the gearbox. Then just undo all the bolts holding it in place, put some gasket sealant on the new one and refit.

You will need a very long bit for the sump bolts though, they are very deep set, specialist tool afaik.
