    I've just replaced a damaged pin on one of the plastic rear door handles on my 156SW 20v and have seen posts here saying it's an easy job to fit these units. I have to say that's not been my experience at all, the (literal) sticking-point being that the unit sits under the big, thick rubber...

    Well, it's been fun. almost 6 years of ownership of my first Alfa Romeo. Some ups, some downs. I still remember driving home after I bought her and smiling all the way. Such a great car to drive. But, it is time to move on and time for someone to buy their Alfa Romeo Advert is here...

    I have a front and rear anti roll bar and links from my 156GTA. Front bar has new D bushes, but they aren't powerflex type. Also I have the original type GTA springs/dampers all in good working order. I think the rear springs/dampers may only be suitable to fit the Sportwagon, not sure. These...

    Does anyone know where I can get my car undersealed in the Mansfield/Worksop areas? The garage I use suggested a bodyshop but the two I've spoken to say try a car maintenance garage.

    Hi guys, I just picked up Alfa #14. A 156 SW V6 (pre facelift). It's an import from japan is is in amazing nick, soI'm super happy. One thing I did see when I was picking up was another car they had, a red 156 SW V6 Ti. Did that even exist in the UK?

    So it's been a long time since I've seriously graced these pages but I may be back a little more often now. I've had my GTA for years and it's been off the road while I've been doing some serious upgrades. that project has stalled for family reasons but finally life is starting to come good and...

    Cut and pasted from my "help" thread; My Dad also reset the cam timing, which was slightly out.
  8. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    So got my first V6 156SW last year by accident (didn't want to take a bus replacement service , bought an alfa instead, story for another thread!) and happily it sailed through its first MOT and has only needed a pair of front tyres since then. Next MOT is due in Easter and unfortunately I...

    Afternoon, Considering a 156 sport wagon (< £1k) as a second car. Currently driving a MY2002 325i which I can't fit the bike in and generally useless for transporting anything. I appreciate the 156sw isn't a very spacious estate but will be fine for my needs and I've wanted a 156 since 1998...

    A friend has just bought a 156 sw 2.4. The rear looks very low but was told the rear suspension had been recently fixed. I believe this is the self leveling set up. Is it possible to adjust the ride height? If not can the rear struts be changed for the normal ones from the booted car or do we...

    Anyone looking for a red leather interior for a 156SW there is one breaking at IBP Breakers in Carntynehall Street Glasgow(next to Westburn Bar). Looks in good order and in a pre facelift car that is getting broken. Also has 16" Teledials fitted and body panels look good too Just a heads up as...
  12. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Unfortunately time has come for me to part with my 156 as its not ecomical enough, but fear not as its likely to be replaced by a diesel GT / 147 This next part i write with a heavy heart, the car is best siuted to someone that can use it as a spares car or break it and sell it off in parts. I...
  13. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Made a vvery stupid mistake of forgetting to replace the oil filler cap when topping up with oil before a 220mile drive. Was in a rush and wasnt thinking right. After arriving at my destination i noticed thick smoke pouring out from the bonnet only to discover the engine was covered in oil...

    I've got a few bits for sale. 156 coolant bottle - fits every engine size except 2.5 V6. Includes cap. Fully functional, but grubby. 156 SW rear wiper arm including blade. I've replaced the rubber so it works well. Both items in fully functional condition. Postage at cost on top.

    I get the "bulb out" indicator light when I turn on my headlamps, but I walk around the car and can't find anything. I'm not running LED's or anything. Any ideas?
  16. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi guys, Brought an 156 2.4 JTD Sportwagon and it has a few things that need sorting so I was wondering if anyone could help me out? :) 1) Rear window on the left side doesn't work 2) Fuel light doesn't work ( will I have to take the centre column out ) ? 3) The brake light at the top of the...

    Ive been looking for a change for a while now but I do love the smiles I get from my alfa. I have been considering changing my 156sw for a 147 to play with but as you lot probably know more than me would you bother or are there bits I can do to my 156 to make it even more fun... its the...

    Okay, took a two week holiday in the UK and dropped my 12 year old SW off for a big birthday present after passing its 11K mark. New clutch, new timing belt and new engine mounts too. :thumbs: Got the car back and ran it around for a few days before I realized the over-pervading smell of...
  19. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    My Sportwagon had a fight with a fence and lost, the last time we had icy roads. Got it fixed by the insurance company - resprayed bumper at both ends, and most of the panels down the drivers side. Anyhow I got it back and immediately noticed that the rear wiper didn't work any more. This is...
