Wave Alfa parts: 147 heat shield

After 115kkms the front exhaust heat shield seems to be completely broke up. I'm happy 'cause I knew some have follow off after 40kkms. and less. It's cracked all over the place and making a metallic sound (that for a moment I thought was from the 1st catalytic, uffff! ).

Any place, online, where I can find it? My mechanic can arrange it for me for about 45. For something that will be cracked in no time.

Thank guys.

Re: Alfa parts: 147 heat shield

Keep searching on ebay or at a car breakers, had to replace mine at 60000 miles, found one for £10/€14 second hand. Not the nicest of sounds when it goes.

Re: Alfa parts: 147 heat shield

Cheers Throttleman, just bought one, £13 with postage is fantastic, anyone else looking for one or just as a spare should get one whilst there still going.

Re: Alfa parts: 147 heat shield

I've had to report the seller to ebay for non delivery, I bought one on the 18th Jan, still hasn't arrived after a number of attempts at contacting them without response.

Re: Alfa parts: 147 heat shield

i really hate dealers but for the sake of paying £1 extra it would have been the better choice imo.

Re: Alfa parts: 147 heat shield

Tell me! Would rather have gone and put up with the dealership if I'd have known this would happen.

Re: Alfa parts: 147 heat shield

Alex and others, I'm sorry things have come to this. After all it was me who have found the seller. I still believe that somethings happened to the guy... have you call him?
Fortunately I haven't payed because I've requested the total (shipping to Portugal).

Re: Alfa parts: 147 heat shield

Wouldn't worry to much TM, I called the dealership on friday and I'm waiting for the parts manager to get in touch (if they ever decide its important enough to warrant disturbing there ever so busy life!).

Anyway, least it's been discovered the reason why they haven't sent anything out, lets hope others don't waste there money and they get the ebay shop closed.

Have you managed to get a heatshield from anyone else yet?

Re: Alfa parts: 147 heat shield

So you call them, Alex. And their answer was they were too buzy?

I haven't got another heatshield from anywhere else. But I'm thinking to start to search... it's making more and more noise! And people start to look at me...

Re: Alfa parts: 147 heat shield

Every time I tried to get put through to them they don't answer the phone, now I live to far away to be able to walk in there, I'll call them later today to see what they are playing at!

There's a few official alfa places about here, I'll get in touch with them to see what sort of price they will do.

Have you called EB Spares, they might ship to Portugal, worth a try.
