  1. 156 V6 - How do I bleed the clutch?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    As the title please guys, I have had my clutch bite point move south, right to the bottom of the pedal travel. I checked the fluid and it was low, non in the reservoir, so topped up, it is now at the correct level, however the clutch bite point has not moved back up. I guess this is because...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I have seen a fair amount of time devoted to thermostats recently, timer of the year I suppose and I appear to have a problem with the one on my 2.4JTD as the gauge never gets much above 50. I have ordered a new one from 24/7 spares but wondered if there is any particular process need to remove...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    All, my clutch is a bit heavy and I sometimes struggle to locate 1st gear on the first attempt. A previous thread suggested that bleeding the clutch may be worth trying. Anyone point me in the right direction please i.e where the master cylinder is, does it have a bleed nozzle etc etc

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Does anyone have any Idea how you're supposed to unclip the H7 bulb on a '01 156? It's seems to be impossible unless you're a small child with hands of leather.
  8. Fitted a new GTV clutch slave cylinder, now i need to bleed it, help please.

  9. Master Brake Cylinder bleed

    Alfa 164 & 166
    I need some help please to clear air from my TS master cylinder. Like a fool I let the brake fluid run out while installing new stainless steel brake lines (nice job, proper reusable fittings this time, and cheaper than goodridge pre-made lines). I bled all the brakes but of course the air in...
  10. Bleed the clutch .. how?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I changed the brake fluid this weekend and as the clutch is fed from the same reservoir, I thought I'd do that too. Particularly as all the intake pipes were off and the battery tray was out. Found the bleed nipple no problem ... but it's moulded plastic and part of the pipework .... So can...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Can anyone offer me some pointers on the best way to bleed the clutch? This is on a 3 litre 166. There is an air leak somewhere in the system, and every 500 miles or so, it needs bleeding. Last three times, the dealer has done this, but I would like to be able to do it myself. There is a 7mm...
