    Hi, Rather than split this out I am hosting it on my own site. the link is I created a guide to cover this subject but it is too large for me to upload as a post (4.5MB PDF). I included several pics which will be the problem. Is there anywhere I can put this on the...
  4. 82 Alfetta GT rear brake disk bolt size

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Hello all. I need new rear disks. Mine are warped and will fail the MOT and are also preventing me from getting a good handbrake. I notice that "early" cars seem to have 10mm bolt holes and "late" cars have 8mm brake holes. When did Alfa change and what size hole disks do I need? My thoughts...

    Alfa MiTo
    Just changing the pads and discs on the missus Mito, pads down to rivets on one disk. Have all the bits and calipers off, then I discover that there is a wierd nut holding the disc carrier on. Tried shifting it with a 13mm socket, which fits over it, but it just started to round off. What...
  6. Brembo disk and pad replacement

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi Guys, I know this is a common issue but I need a rant. Yesterday I took into replacing the front and rear discs and pads on my 159 2.4. I was expecting sticky pins so geared up with a proper punch / drift and hammer before starting. The first pin I punched came out with little or no...
  7. Not the hard disk

    The Technology Section
    Not so much as a discussion topic but rather a heads-up which may help someone. My father-in-law connected his external desktop hard disk only to be greeted by "drive not recognised" He brought it over to me and I tried it on my surface - nothing. Tried it on the laptop - nothing. Ear to the...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I need some advice guys. I have a 2010 159 2.0 jtdm TI and I am starting to experience vibrations through the steering wheel when applying brakes - much more pronounced at higher speeds. No vibrations either through the steering wheel or through the seat at other times. The disks and pads...
  11. Disk or Bearing?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Last night around 100 miles into a 150 mile trip, I barrelled up to a roundabout as usual and all of a sudden suffered some brake fade for the last 20 feet or so. Highly unusual given my braking set-up. About 5 miles later I noticed a gentle rumble form the front drivers side wheel, that gentle...

  13. 2005 156 what rear disk and pads fit

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I am going round the bend here, all I want to do is replace the darn rear disk and pads on my 2005 156td but my local motor factors have both supplied the wrong parts. My pads on the rear do not have the wire spring parts on the side of them and also the disks they gave the recess on the rear...

    Hi everyone I have just got my 2001 spider back from having new front tyres and tracking aligned. The car now has a knocking noise coming from the drivers side front wheel. Took it back to the garage who took the wheel off and showed me the brake disk rocks about and only seems to be held in...
  15. broken disc locking nipple!

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I helped my mate to change discs and pads, and whilst one of the locking nipples came out with no pain, the other one was like welded in!! It took us an insane amount of efforts and strength to remove it, until eventually it snapped halfway, leaving us with a stub of it sticking out of the hub...
  16. Mini Disk

    The Technology Section
    So I found my mini disk player and loads of mini disks up the loft the other day. Should I keep this for nostalgia or get rid of this dated tech? I have an mp3 player so don't really have a use for it. :(

  20. how important is this nut on the brake disk ??

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    the nut in question is the on to the left i believe holding the disk to the hub, I put that one on today in the picture having felt the disk loose when the wheel was off, Now the one on the other side is "sheered" requiring a drill and tap, so i cant put another nut on to make it tight and yes...
