  1. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Well it looks like i've lost my car for two weeks cause the gearbox first motion shafts oil seal have failed dumping oil all over the road lost over a litre of oil in a few minutes been quoted dead on £400 to replace and fix does this sound reasonable?
  2. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Howdy chaps, my drive belt is fooked on my 156 2.4 jtd 10v replacing the whole set up including crank shaft and aux tensioner, got my crank shaft wheel off with a bit of heavy persuasion (big hammer) but cant get the tensioner off, the three bolts came off no probs but i am having a problem with...

  4. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Been trying all day (& most of tonight) to get that circlip open wide enough so that I can get the outer CV joint off, so that I can replace my inner CV boot. Does anyone have any top tips, driveshaft is lying next to my 156 looking pathetic, attached only by the ABS wire, which I'm pretty sure...
  5. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Got a clonking sound when i go over bumps. Took it to the Alfa specialist who changed a suspension arm but no change. All of the suspension was checked and nothing was found, all as tight as a drum! Took the car to my old garage who looked at it and blamed the steering rack. Is this likely to...
  6. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi, my throttle has become very tight to the point where the car is not really drivable, ive tried spraying wd40 etc on parts of it which seemed to help a bit but it soon goes really tight again. Ive called all the motor factors in the area (Lincoln) and no one stocks them! We dont have an alfa...
  7. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Strange one on my 156 2.4 jtd, it drains the battery overnight. I have changed alternator and have tried 3 different rev counters, it must be something connected to the rev counter as if i remove it overnight it is no problem, if i leave it in, the battery is flat in the morning. what is powered...
  8. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Managed to put a new rim on the Brera 2.4, the Rimstock Pro-Lite 1.2 has an offset of ET37, and the clearance is non-existent, as I thought, so need to get some 3-5 mm spacers, the rest of the clearance looks fine. Was not sure about the gloss black, and diificult to view with no tyre, and not...
  9. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Why do we hear so many moans regarding GTV reliability?, mine is 1998,130k miles and making more power than ALFA quoted when new!, having owned it for 1 year the biggest expense has been a new rad, even that gave me plenty of warning (didn't suddenly let go), is it that a lot of owners...
  10. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi guys. I've got a 2001 156 2.0l Selespeed with 50,000 miles that's making a very stange noise at tick over. It's a kind of chirping noise that seems to b comming from the belt area. If you apply even the smallest amount of throttle to increase the revs the noise stops. With the aux belt...
  11. ICE & Blue&Me
    Going to a wedding tonight at a farm in the middle if nowhere and the destination doesn't seem to be available. Grrr.
  12. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi everyone. I've just refitted my beautifully repainted red Brembo calipers and thought I would just "slacken off" the bleed nipples ready to bleed them tomorrow. Only the damn bleed nipple sheared straight off! Does anyone know of any way of getting the remains out of the caliper or is it a...
  13. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Was away working from the end of november until the start of may but got a new battery before i left as the old one wouldnt hold a charge and was flat after a day of not driving the car but as a precaution i didnt put the new one back in the car whilst i was away. Since i got back i havent...
  14. South Africa
    Ok so I'm the latest victim of the pothole scourge we have over here. I have 1 damaged tyre and a damaged rim. I have already replaced the tyre (I put the new set of 4 tyres on 4 weeks ago). Now I need a reputable company to fix the rim, that will not charge me a leg & kidney. Any...
  15. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I was just saying to my friend today how my gtv of 5 months is testing me but I will repair anything it throws at me because I love it. Last week I got a clicking noise from the offside cv joint so I've ordered one of them , no problem I thought until I was filling her up with fuel this morning...
  16. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Typical! I always try to park at the far end of car parks where no one goes to avoid getting door dents off careless eurobox drivers and as you all know spider doors are quite big need plenty of room to fall out (quite funny watching people drive around for ages trying to get a space by the...
  17. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hello all, I seem to have acquired a rather large car park dink in the GTV over the rear wheel :mad: :mad: It seems a little worse than the average one and I'm wondering whether someone like Dentmaster/Dentwizard would be able to do anything with it do you think? Tempted to just leave it as it...
