    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi! Recent owner of a 2007 Alfa GT 1.9 jdtm. Battery has been a pain and keeps draining - had a new one fitted and all is well.

    Alfa MiTo
    Hi guys, I'm trying to service my mito, I've found what I assume is the oil filter but can't find the drainage pin? The under carriage has a cover that I'm reluctant and pretty much unable to get off, is it under there or is there a easier access point? Cheers

    As previously posted my 159 Diesel Sportwagon battery dies after 6 or 7 days . I'm thinking of buying a solar panel charger for when I leave it , is there anywhere one could be plugged in like a cigarette lighter which will charge when the key is out ?

    Went to start the spider and the battery was flat, not used the car in 3 days and prior to that battery was full charged up and started on the button. I’m guessing I have an earth problem, if so where should I start in terms of fault finding? Thanks

  14. Gearbox drain plug sealant

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I'm about to change my gearbox oil on my Spider soon and I believe that the drain and filler plugs don't have washers as I'm used to but require thread sealant. The manual suggests Locitite 510 but it appears to be very expensive. On Loctite's website there is a 577 sealer which seems to be fit...

  18. Silly question: Drain and Fill plug for JTDM transmission

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi All, planning on doing a transmission oil change. Went under the car and was expecting a similar hex bolt for the fill and drain but it seems like one is a hex and the other one is a normal bolt. Is this the fill and drain plugs or am I missing something here? (see pic)
