    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...

    Hello and sorry for my english but it's not my language. Try as I can. I noticed today that I don't have reverse lights. The bulbs are ok, today the lights jumped several times. I heard that there is a sensor or someone has a picture or diagram where to look? Is there a socket on the gear shift...

    Hi all, I've had my 156 V6 since 1999. Love it! I'm on the verge of scrapping it now as the head gasket's gone due to a leaky hose and overheating. Prob is I'm still attached to it! I still remember how excited I was when I got it. Get under your skin don't they :-) Cheers, Nick.

    My top engine bar mount is a bar with a rose joint....I was looking to try and improve the engine mounts and was expecting a rubber one from what I've seen elsewhere. Is the rose joint something someone has added? I have a small amount of drive train shunt....I am guessing worn mounts....is...

It's bloody brilliant. I have 2 quick questions though.... Should the windows drop when opening...

    I seem to have problem with the rear brakes. Parking brake is fine but Service brake does not meet MOT requirement. The calipers are free and bled with newish pads and handbrake cable. Tester suggested the compensation valve but these seem to be unavailable anymore. How to test the valve? Is...

    As thread tile says. After 12 years or so of Alfa ownership it is time to move on. The DMF is vibrating badly, and the paintwork (red) is flaky and horrible so it's beyond my remit to repair it. So I'm hoping to keep as many others on the road and strip bits off it before sending it to the...

    Good morning all. Currently trying to change the exhaust on my Spider, 2.0L Twin Spark. Does anyone know where I can get replacement studs for the manifold to downpipe joint ? I've tried EB Spares but they don't have them. The studs are very badly corroded and stuck fast, and I am fairly...

    MOT fail in November, has started to go where the inner wing meets the subframe both sides. Also had an "across the nose" prang in September which has misaligned the bonnet & shifted the bumper cross member to the point it needs cutting out & replacing. Sadly I've not got the resources to get...
