  4. Headlight bolts

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    It looks like somebody has removed the headlights from my 156 at some point by cutting or grinding off the top mounting bolts. Savages. The lights wobble a bit and the car has just failed its MOT on headlight aim, among a couple of other issues. Any ideas on how to fix this? The bolts are...

    This autumn, I'll be doing a suspension overhaul on my 156. I have more or less decided on the suspension setup I want, but what can I expect for stuck bolts? - Front pinch bolt, I know - Rear lower strut bolt? Last time I went to get my car aligned, the rear cam/toe bolts was more or less...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I've recently purchased a 08 159 2.4 JTDm and during the "new" car inspection and fixs I've been told that the rear alignment can't be done due to seized screws. Aparently I'll need the screws and the bush but i can't find any definite answer to which part numbers I'll need to do this repair...
  10. Front Brake Caliper Bolts Torque

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Just wondering if anyone can confirm the torque settings for the caliper carrier bolts (7mm hex) and caliper bolts (19mm socket) on the front calipers? This thread mentions the front caliper bolts are 22-32Nm. I assume this is the 7mm hex bolts as it sounds too low for the ones with the 19mm...

    Hey fellow 159 owners, just had her in for a wheel alignment and the bolts are all seized up (I ahve only had my alfa for just over a year now).

  16. Spider wheel bolts length issue

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi Folks, So my 1999 Phase 2 Spider is at the garage having a few bit done (exhaust, filters.. nothing major). The guys there have said that the bolts in the wheels are too short for the wheels to be safely attached to the hubs. Torquing them up to the recommended amount is pulling the threads...

    Just started on a refurb on the front suspension (new shocks, springs, wishbones and drop links) and so far I’ve only managed to get the two bolts off the bottom of on of the struts using an angle grinder. I’ve still got another 30 assorted nuts and bolts to undo including the drop links and...
