156 2.4 JTD 20v m-jet driveshaft
Has anyone suffered a 3 or 4 week wait for new Alfa driveshaft unit from Italy. My local dealer ordered one for me but could not get an ETA date from Alfa for three weeks. ARuk said I was at the top of a list of 200 people waiting and supplies to Warrington (UK Central parts depot) had dried up. After £400 for 3 weeks car rental costs I asked them to send the old unit to be re-engineered (incl o/night courier for £156) and re-fit - good choice (Car parts direct in Mansfield - really helpful). Back on th road now, but still no sign of the new Alfa unit.
I thought people should know because this was the 2nd failed d'shaft on this car.
