    Hello This weekend I'll be tackling changing out the oil cooler and pipes on my 24v. As the cooler is bottom feed and return, should I invert the cooler for the initial fill and turnover. Cheers Chris

  9. How to bleed Alfa 147 1.6 Lusso Clutch?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I assume its done on the slave cylinder? Where about is this on the car? Is it under the battery and batter holder like other Alfa's? I presume its a case of twisting the bleed nipple, pressing the peddle down until clear liquid comes out without bubbles, tightening the nipple back up...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    On my 156 2.0 TS Selespeed i changed the pads yesterday as they were very low and spongy feeling. The new pads have not stopped the spongy feeling, so next stop was to bleed the brakes. I checked out the old fluid and it looks very dark so i thought i would completely flush out the old stuff...

  16. 164 - how to bleed clutch?

    Alfa 164 & 166
    Hi guys, Well, my 164 QV is off the road at the moment due to a dodgy clutch. The pedal always needed pressing pretty far to change gear without crunching, and then one day it stopped letting me change at all. I found that the fluid reservoir was pretty much empty, so I topped it up, but the...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Jumped in the car this morning and noticed immediately that there was a lot of free-play in the clutch. Drove to work OK but obviously concerened, thoughts of 'how much is this going to cost' and 'would it be covered by warranty' Car is an 06 44K miles, just still in warranty, but my nearest...
