Re: 156 Snapped Timing Belt

Hi Gaz

Sorry to hear that you have a little trouble. That will be a bit pricey.

Thing to do is find a local specialist and get a quote. Where in the world are you as with that info somone here may be able to help recommend one.

Also as this is the hello thread re-post your problem on the techie threads and you are more likely to get a result.

Also you will find out things; like AR have reduced the lifespan of the belts to 3 years, 36,000 miles!

For the cost of the repair you may be able to buy another Alfa, leaving you with a carful of spares!

Too late now but a pity you didn't find us earlier!

Hope you sort it.

Gaz, where do you live? Maybe someone will be able to suggest a good independent specialist garage in your area.
