    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi everybody! New to the forum, glad to see there is such a community! I happily own a 2015 QV TCT that had no issues whatsoever.

    Alfa MiTo
    Hello everyone! I have problems with the rear right side caliper. It needs to be changed. Problem is, the original part cost a fortune here in Norway and is pretty damn expensive elsewhere too. So I thought I'll buy a "pirate" part. But which one? There seems to be 2 different types around: -...

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Gtv 3.2 I have upgraded fronts to 330s, are there any upgrades for the rears? And if so does it make a difference and how will it impact on the balance between front and rear eg will the rears lock up due to system unbalanced?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    So I'm refurbishing my brakes and I've noticed something with the rear brakes. I have a 2005 156 V6 Sportwagon with 276mm rear discs. However, the calipers only take brake pads which don't fit the entire width of the rear disc. When the rear discs were changed from 251mm to 276mm were the...

    Alfa 75, RZ, SZ
    I'm looking to replace the front discs on my t/s. When I've removed the hub & disc from the car, does the disc just need to be pressed out from the hub as it's a tight fit. The workshop manual isn't clear at all. Thanks.

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Regular readers may recall that I have had an ongoing issue with erratic excessive free travel at the brake pedal. And, that I've had some success in reducing this by increasing the friction in the rear caliper pins (to minimise the rear caliper body 'flopping' around on the pins). This was...
