Alfa 156

Thumbs Up Hello and help !!!!!

Hi everyone, i am new to 156 ownership and this forum so please cut me some slack.....Recently bought a 156 2.0 Veloce SP 3, after alot of soul searching over realiability issues...its a great car and im chuffed to bits with it,but its already had a new engine at 50k and is now touching 90k,so i am looking at doing belts and variator etc.
i have a friend who is a top Ford trained technician who is willing to carry out the work if i can provide a decent Haynes type manual to follow.!!! Can anyone help please with a detailed description of a full belt,tensioners,variator etc etc procedure.
Many thanks

Re: Hello and help !!!!!

welcome to AO dude....

use the search facility above which should be able to help you out...

very wise changing the belts etc...recommend every 36k or 3 years, which ever is sooner, you will need a cam locking tool as well

all the best

Welcome, unfortunately Haynes themselves don't do a manual for the 156

Best searching the net for instructions

Good luck

Here ya go....make sure he gets hold of camlocks and does all the tensionsers.

This shows how to change a variator but the job is basically the same as it involves taking the belts off anyway.
