  1. Lower dog bone engine/gearbox mount.

    Alfa Giulietta
    For the 2nd time we are having issues with the dogbone/gearbox mount on our G. It is a rubbish design, the hole inside the large end which fits into the subframe is larger than the bolt which goes through it and the mount relies on the clamping force of that bolt to stop the mount moving...

    Hi All, Just done a suspension overhaul, noticed that there is a fair amount of play in my rear dog bone engine mount. I have a spare already, but I can't seem to get any purchase on the bolts. Has anyone got a guide that shows how to do it? or has anyone else done it before?

  8. Won't start after fitting 123, can I change the dog tooth drive?
