New rear caliper on the vrs needed :( Initial stealer price was £195, a little phoning around by the garage and got it down to £128. If it didn't need to be painted red it would have cost £90. A little paint costs £38 it seems. :mad:
Looking into purchasing a 156 GTA. All looks good and everything checks out however one thing seems to be fishy and it looks like the Brake Callipers are not red.
Could someone please clarify Brake Calliper Colors?
The old girl just passed on the OS handbrake efficiency so thought I'd take a look.
Whipped the calliper off and removed the piston, it was a bit tarnished so gave it a good clean. Turning the armature the cable attaches to by hand seemed smooth enough and the coarse worm thread the...
Have removed the calliper, it's the ATE twin piston, but can't seem to get the pistons out. If I blast with compressed air I could get one out but just wondering how to get the other one out? They were seized good and proper. Any advice appreciated. Rich
If all else fails and I can't refurb it...
I'm just in the process of renewing all the brake lines and rear calipers on the rear, could anyone answer me a quick question about crushable washers on the braided hose Union ?
Basically I bought the rear HEL braided hoses last year and never really looked at the fittings, they are female to...
Front caliper needed for 2.4 Brera
My Brera has failed its MOT due to a caliper that has given up and ended up warping the disc. The problem is that other than from Alfa directly (~£450+vat!), no one else has one in stock. Does anyone know of a source/site/contact that could help me? If not...
I am sure this question has been asked before but I cannot find the thread. I have finally found a set of (330mm) GT callipers for my (305mm) GTA ones but they will need to be re-coated (heat and chemical resistant – much like the OE calliper coating).
Is there is a proprietary (off the shelf)...
I've finally traced the leak in my breaking system to the righthand rear calliper.
This has taken me ages because it's a tiny leak and only through leaving the car standing for 6 weeks did I at last find the evidence I was after: a couple of drips inside the rim of the wheel!
Does anyone know if it's possible to remove the rear brake callipers on an Alfa 75 TS without the need to remove all the driveshafts etc.
The reason being, we want to take off the callipers, clean, rebuild etc and free up the ramp in the workshop while this goes on (my father-in-law...
Hello 166 section.
I need to replace the slider pins on the set of callipers I use on my Spider (the callipers are from a 3.0 166, of this I am certain).
The replacement pins I ordered are, however, far too big.
Ive read fleeting mentions of this before, but no hard info.
A guest here from the GTV side of the site. Im about to fit some 166 Brembo callipers to my car.
Can someone please advise of the bolt size?
Ive read they are M14, but ive yet to find what pitch they are? Ive also seen someone mention they are tapered?
Hi, wonder if anyone can help with this one! I'l trying to source a pair of rear brake calliper carriers from any 164 for a friend who's not computer literate!
Anything you've got will do as he'll have them blasted and refurbished but it's the last part he needs to complete a project!
Hi all, I desperately need a NSF Brembo brake calliper for my 2007 159 3.2 Q4
If anyone has one I could purchase from them I would be most grateful.
Need to get my car back on the road for Tuesday evening so I'm in a bit of a panic.
Just picked her up from Andy and Rachel in North Devon and drove back to Cornwall without a hitch......well ok the near side front calliper is a bit sticky but it wouldn't be an Alfa if all was perfect eh?
I have forgotten the sheer joy of a GTV on Cornish back lanes although we now have a few...
MiTo is currently in (Croydon) for replacing rear brake pads and just been told that the piston on the calliper is seized and needs a new Brembo rear calliper and that this "often happens".
Brakes were fine before taking them in.
Anyone got experiences similar? Is this a common problem when...
Hi guy, I don't normally frequent this part of the forum but I'm in the middle of a 166 brembo upgrade on my alfa gt. The only thing holding me back is I can't get the correct calliper pins for the 166. My question is does anyone have a set that they are willing to sell?
OK, so about 6 months ago I spent an evening "quick fixing" my terrible looking callipers by simply cleaning and lacquering them again with high heat resistance paint.
All has been well for a while but its peeled off and so I am back to square 1 with some seriously shocking looking callipers :(...
