The best of all, I could do it in-place, without removing the brakes, leaving the dust shield intact!
After several months suffering a strange behaviour on the rear, thinking that the bushings were ok (replaced them 3 years ago, never buying Moog again, crap!!!), checked them and they were...
The Younger Mrs S. wants a bicycle, so we will need a carrier.
What's the best sort? I envisage one of those that hooks onto the back of the hatch and rests on top of the bumper (or however it works).
Do these scratch the hatch and bumper to buggeration?
Are they quick/easy to...
I have a 1.5l version of the above which has developed a leak from the seal. We are having difficulty in sourcing these:
Any one know where we can obtain these?
I am in Australia and while we have one of the 48x35x12 the other appears not available here. The person who...
Hi guys, just joined after owning my GT for 3+ years. My rear caliper pin is seized in the carrier and needs replacing. However I'm struggling to free the lower carrier bolt from the hub.
Due to the 'unique way' inwhich the suspension arm bolts to the hub I can only get an open ended spanner to...
Couple of bits needed.
1st is one of these battery compartment clips, the one behind the drivers seat (RHD)
2nd is a Bendix front brake calliper carrier, must have good threads and mounting bolts.

Just invested in a Saris bones bike carrier for our trip to France.
It's clear that I'm going to need a lighting board as the bikes obscure the brake lights/indicators.
The boards usually come with a seven pin plug but I haven't got a clue where to connect this too. Do I...
As the title says...should Alfa ever make a people carrier? I read somewhere ages ago they were thinking about it but have heard nothing since. As a family of 8 we'd love one BUT not sure an Alfa would ever look quite right that big. Would it just loose it's sexy lines?
Does anyone use a bike carrier for the back of their 159 SW?
I have just bought one and am worried that the attachment to the top of the boot is technically gripping the plastic rear spoiler.
Additionally, the side straps won't attached to the sides of the boot lid because of the design...
Sorry, this is not an exclusive, but don't you all think that Alfa are missing a trick here by not deisgning, building and selling to us the sexiest looking and nicest sounding V6 povered Chelsea taxi on the market. The gap in the range is possibly their biggest market opportunity left to them...
Does anyone know of a universal type bike carrier that'll comfortably fit the GTV? I know most are adjustable, but don't know if any adjust quite to the extent of the GTV boot! If anyone has one or knows of one I'd really appreciate knowing where I can get one.
Thanks a lot.
