    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    My engine is in limp mode and would like to lock the swirl flaps. I have read about disconnecting the balljoint from the actuator arm. However it looks like that this is different for a 1.9 jtdm 16v. I cannot find this balljoint. All subjects are for the 2.4 engines. Is it possible to lock swirl...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    hi guys, nice easy one, do the lower wishbones creak loudly once they're done? I got in my Brera 2.4jtdm the other morning, and its developed a horrendous creaking (seemingly overnight?) when driving on bumpy roads, and when turning the wheels while stationary. I instantly thought wishbone...

  9. Removing clutch actuator arm. Help!

    I've a 147 Ducati and I'm trying to remove the clutch actuator arm so that I can try and lubricate the bushes on the shaft as my clutch feels awful after about 20/30 mins (but does this sporadically), but it's well seized on to the splines. This is the 2nd time I've tried and it's still...
  10. Drive shaft issue when changing lower suspension arm

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    This weekend I have had to replace the offside lower suspension arm due to the ball joint failing the MOT. I did the nearside one a couple of years ago without issue. I managed to do the nearside without removing the Disc and Calliper so I thought using the same method would work on the offside...

  12. 1.4tb offside control arm sensor

    Alfa MiTo
    I'm in the middle of changing my suspension, drop links and control arms. The offside/rh/uk drivers side control arm has a sensor bolted to it via a couple of arm joints. Typically the replacement swing arm doesn't have the bracket for this so back to parts shopping ? Does anyone know what that...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi all, I've had a look and can only find reference to the driver's side arm not clearing the screen so apologies if this is somewhere on site (I'm clearly not searching correctly!) This was self-inflicted... Having gotten used to clearing the screen with the 156 wipers once the heater has...
  14. Replacing front upper arm?

    Alfa 164 & 166
    I've got a front upper arm to replace - can anyone advise how far the front suspension needs to be dismantled to achieve this? I'm hoping it's only a question of splitting the upper ball joint and unbolting the upper arm - but is it also necessary to unbolt and drop the upper arm/strut top...

  18. upper arm mount stuck

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    To distract me from the post cam belt change noise problem (see other thread) i thought i'd sort out the upper wishbone on my 147 project. Thought i was doing well with all bolts out and upper ball joint separated but i just can't get the strut separated from the upper mount. I've left the...
  19. Lower track control arm (Wishbone)?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I’ll regret asking this but I do have my reasons....... I am due to have both lower control arms replaced, it has been mentioned that I wouldn’t need to have the car tracked after replacement? What is the general consensus, I think it will need a 4 wheel alignment but has anyone ever replaced...
