  1. 156 2.5 V6 Dipstick

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all, New here - just picked up a 1999 Alfa Romeo 156 2.5 V6 Sport Pack 3 (One of only 5 remaining in the UK!) yesterday, and there's a couple of little things (and one large thing - starts with c, ends with ambelt) that I need to sort. One of the small things is that the dipstick that has...

  3. Wiper motor - different plugs

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi guys, I recently started having problems with the wiper on my Alfa 156, 1.9jtd 2003 model (facelift interior). I purchased a 2nd hand one from the scrappers from a similar car and although the motors are identical physically, the plugs seem to be different. Mine is a squarish plug with 6...
  4. Some Aesthetic Details...

    Alfa GTA
    Evening Alfisti, I'm hoping that after Dan's treatment my GTA will be nearly finished, or at least the big work will be finished, key word being hope. My question is what does everyone do when it comes to cosmetics, specifically in a couple of areas. With regards to the fuel rails how do...

  6. 3.2 V6 Starter Motor

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Evening Alfisti :). Am I right in thinking that the 147/156/GT 3.2 V6 range all used the same starter motor? Part number 55193406 keeps coming up but when I search for that part it shows up in a couple of places but only for the GT 3.2. ePer then shows 55193410 for the 156 GTA starter, odd...
  7. Alfa 156 Lower Wishbone Alignment Help!

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hey Alfisti, Long time reader, first time poster here with what is probably a super simple issue to solve. I had a gear shifter cable end snap on me, so I had to drop the shifter/handbrake tunnel to get the new cables in. For whatever reason, a previous owner/mechanic had installed the front...
  8. 156 map sensor

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hello My car has recently been in the garage having gone into limp mode. It shows error PO235. The garage cleaned the map sensor and it didn't help. They then returned the car to me saying I should go to a specialist. Should I replace the map sensor? Could it be the MAF? Any input would be...
  9. 156 infocenter

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I have a low spec Alfa 156 2004 which didn't come with the info center (middle of dash with vents). Is it possible/easy to add this feature? Thanks in advance for any input!
  10. 156 GTA Steering Rack

    Alfa GTA
    If you had bought a used steering rack for a 156 GTA, are there any identifying features you could look for to confirm it was indeed a 156 GTA rack as opposed to a GT or 147 rack? I would have tried to measure the rack ends but they seem to have fused with the track rod end... I presume there is...
  11. Jetfin or Teledial

    Alfa GTA
    Afternoon Alfisti, How do we all feel about Jetfins on a 156 GTA? Would you always stay with the standard Teledials or if the opportunity came up would you consider Jetfins? For my own understanding: 1. I presume the ride is a little harsher as there is less tyre sidewall? 2. Would you have...
  12. 156 Airbag Sensor (1999 2.0TS)

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi, So my Airbag sensor died, probably due to a dying battery on startup. Lots of weird clicking noises and the light never went out after changing the battery. cant connect to it via diag software. Been trying the local scrapyards, but all the older 156s have long since been turned into metal...
  13. Wiring an ammeter - 156

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi - I have recently acquired a 156, 2.5 v6 Sportswagon to scratch my Alfa itch. I don't use it every day but keep it for weekend runs. I am busy fitting a set of Smith gauges in the dash. I am a bit stumped on the ammeter. I thought I could just run the 10 gauge wire coming off the battery...

  15. 215 (225)/45/17 vs 205/55/16 on 156- worth the upgrage?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi guys, I currently have 205/55/16 Bridgestone Potenza-s on my 156 2.4 SW. As they are pretty much done, I'll be replacing them for next season. I have been looking at 17" TI Wheels for some time, so I might be buying them trough the winter. So my 2 questions are: -How is handling on 215/225...
  16. 3.0 V6 Swap 156

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I had a plan to do a v6 swap on my 2.0TS Selespeed 156 for a while, I was mainly looking for a late 2.5 v6 manual donor car from Japan, but yesterday while talking with a local Alfa part importer he mentions that he has a 3.0 v6 24v from a phase 1 916 Spider for sale, so that got my attention...

  18. Spring rates for circuit Alfa Romeo 156 Twin Spark

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I know I'm opening a can of worms but I'm really trying to figure out what would spring rates would be the best for track dedicated Alfa Romeo 156 2.0 Twin Spark. So it's only about performance on a race track. I've checked Twin Spark cup (racing cup for TS alfas in Vic and NSW states in...
