    Does anyone have details of a supplier who has Lead/Copper Indium bearings for 2.0 TS? Does anyone know the factory metal specification for the big end and main bearing for the 2.0 TS and are these still available? Has anyone tried the King option that uses Tin?

    I need to change my O/S rear wheel bearing which is getting a bit noisy. There seems to be a range of price options from £25 Alphatec parts up to £100 SKF parts. What do people tend to go for? Do you really get what you pay for?

    Does anyone know what diameter ball bearings are used in the seat runners?, most of mine have disappeared so seat adjustment is difficult, I've been told they might even be roller bearings but none of comprehensive manual break it down that far - thanks

    Can the sump come out with the engine in place? What is the chance of being able to do the bigend bearings in place. The crank might be ok as the car was on the lift at the workshop when the bigends went - Oil was just too old and too thick I guess, maybe the oil pump pickup was blocked. Would...

    There are four of these ball bearings, one at each end of each shaft. They have seals on one side only, the other side being open exposing the race. My question is, which way round do you think the ones at the drivebelt ends should face? Balls in or balls out? ... if you'll pardon the...

    Hi All Just replaced my front Bearings and purchased the Motaquip ones that came with a 5 year guarantee. £72 each delivered. Upon opening I found that inside the Motaquip boxes were SNR Bearings in their original packaging-these were the original bearings fitted by Alfa. Great Value incase...

    Morning! Time to replace front wheel bearings, noticed that there are options of cheaper ones and more expensive ones, what’s the difference?

    Hi I am rebuilding my GTV 2.0 gearbox at the moment and I have just received the intermediate flange bearings from EB spares UK. What I would like to know if changing these 2 bearings will affect the height between the pinion and intermediate flange needing to change the shim ? I didn't...

    Who can do wheel bearings on a 940 Giulietta apart from agents around JHB? They want to replace the whole hub at a premium.

    Hey. Has anyone ever tried to replace the pulley bearings on their air conditioning compressor? Mine is knackered, and new pumps aren't cheap, and second hand ones will be as knackered as mine presumably. Any one had a go?

    Hi everyone. It is my turn to solve the dreaded M32 problems this car has. The bright side is that I see that this gearbox has become well known and the fixes seem less scary than they there 5 years ago. Problem is, we don't have workshops who specialize in those gearboxes specifically since...

    Talking about poor build quality! Noise from rear wheels has gone from a little humming to thunder rumble, and the car has just rounded 230.000 km :-) So new SKF bearings ordered! This is a pretty straightforward job? - or? Do I need a torque wrench for the job? Thanks

    The manual gearbox in my 2010 is starting to feel a bit tired... It's quite difficult to get in to 1st, 2nd and 3rd when it's cold and the bearing in 1st gear whines a bit. I know that bearing and synchro problems aren't that uncommon with this gearbox, so I was wondering if anyone has tried to...

    Afternoon all, thought I'd just post up a warning regarding Shop4parts front wheel bearing kits. I purchased 2 from them in May 2017, and had both front bearings replaced on my 159 Ti. The car is standard with no wheel spacers etc. In February 2018, I had a loud droning coming from the front...

    Evening all, Decided to give changing the front wheel bearings a go myself, as looking on alfaworkshop it looks quite an easy job. Have got most of it stripped down but where mine car is different is the size of the driveshaft. The diameter of the driveshaft is quite a bit bigger than the...

    Need to replace both rear bearings on my Mito - and money is tight this time of year :rolleyes: what kind of labour charges/time am I looking at as don't have time to do them myself... Also any advantage to using aftermarket parts to OEM - saw the Febi Bilstein Wheel Bearing Kit - is it any...
