So I was busy last night...


Couldn't believe it when the inner spider bearing on the front left failed again 15k miles after it had been replaced. The first having survived circa 185k miles. Fail it did and the old one will be returned to Alfa for an explanation and hopefully a refund.

So anyway, as I'm becoming an expert at such things it was a quick and easy job taking about a hour last night. While I was at it I took Gerry in TI's advice and blocked off my ERG with an folded up code can and I have to say, she is running so smooth today, it's like having a new car again.

Reason for the post though is that I wanted to comment on BOD Vehicle Support Services in
Greenogue Business Park and in particular a guy called Kevin. Really top guy as he is friendly and even running up to Christmas, when I was under pressure for the parts he took the time to sort it and get them in (bearing had to come from Italy), and for a much better price than the stealers of both the republic and Stewards in the north where I usually source parts.

So if you're looking for genuine parts give them a buzz, well worth it.
