  1. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I need to find some replacement dust shields for the other half's 147 - the current ones are incredibly rusted and falling to pieces when touched. They are currently scraping on the brake discs, and I've bent them out of the way enough to know they finally need replacing. I can't for the life...
  2. Alfa Giulia
    On my Facebook feed there was an ad for the n ring editions of the Giulia and stelvio QVs. I looked at the comments section to find this... (I've left the names on as it was from a public posting). Hope it was no one on heres car! Sent from my SM-G960F using Tapatalk

    The dust boots on my gear cables have perished and fallen apart. Otherwise the cables seem OK. I don't think it is possible to buy the complete cables anymore but is anyone aware if it is possible to buy the boots separately or if anything fits from another vehicle?
  4. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    I know a few of you (myself included) had an issue with newer style LED bulbs to replace HID or Halogen Driving Lights, essentially being too long for the headlight and not allowing the dust cover to go back on. Those of you that know me will know I knocked up a 3D printed replacement that was...

    Just had an email from Blackburn Motorpark they advise they are closing that site and transferring sales and service of Fiat Renault and Volvo to there other sites. It states the other sites do not support Alfa Romeo and customers should contact Preston Motorpark for service requirements only...
  6. Car Detailing
    Hi all, I currently use Mothers Carnuba Cleaner Wax which works well on the car. I've tried Autoglym Super Resin Polish but find it leaves streaks and temporary stains in the paint. Not ideal. Whilst the Mothers stuff works nicely, I want the ultimate shine, regularly. So I need something that...
  7. Alfa Giulietta
    As stated this is a suspension issue. I've got myself some new shocks, fronts and rears. Problem is I'd like to get some new bump stops and dust covers for them and I'm having difficulty finding them. Alfisti have requested them from the Italian manufacturer since Aug would you believe and...
  8. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    bit of a long shot guys but the dust guards on my GT are totally shot, i am trying to find them new and not having a lot of luck, i didnt try alfa yet as i am not feeling like i want to drop huge chunks of cash out of my bank account... anyone have a source for these?
  9. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Sadly, my gorgeous GTV, which took me all around Europe last summer, including a lap of the Nurburgring and a tour of the Alps, has died. Driving it home at the weekend, a pillock in an old V12 Jag tailgated me, so I gave Bella some beans, and it was too much for her. Sadly, her big end has...
  10. Alfa MiTo
    Yesterday I drove straight over an old fashioned plastic bin lid right in the middle of the lane. I though the car (Mito TwinAir) would go straight over it, but it didn’t. It got caught about mid line with the engine, once freed it seemed to drive OK but my wife is saying is makes a slight knock...
  11. The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Hi all, coming to the end of refurbishment of my front end running gear parts. I need to source new front disk dust shields/covers (not sure if that is the correct terminology). For a 72 2l Gtv In the UK (or anywhere) I can't find them for sale, not sure if I am looking in the wrong places...
  12. Alfa Giulietta
    My dust caps on passenger side both rear and front were stolen, they were nothing special but were metal. The car was parked in Tesco's i always park opposite click and collect always lots of bays and hardly ever get people parking next to me which means i do not have to worry about somebody...
  13. Alfa MiTo
    Hi,, has anyone else had problems with excessive brake dust on the rear wheels, have had rear brakes checked and new pads and discs fitted by local Garage but they reported nothing sticking or hanging on but still got excessive brake dust on wheels much more than on fronts, on long runs it even...
  14. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi, Has anyone got one of the round screw-on dust covers for the O/S front headlamp of a 156 (2003 but non-facelift headlight). I've noticed that the inner one (nearer to the central grille) is missing. Obviously a good idea to keep the innards of the light protected. If someone has one off a...
  15. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Anyone any idea what the last MOT tester wa talking about when he said they were missing off front suspension? And if so, any links to buying a pair? Also how hard to tighten handbrake cable on Alfa 916 1995 reg? Could my local garage man do it? TIA
  16. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Any advice would be appreciated here. The rubber bellows on the caliper ends of my Spider's handbrake cable have both disintegrated. The cables are fine but grit and muck are bound to get in eventually. Does anyone know if these bellows can be bought separately? If so is it easy to disconnect...

    Hello peeps, My first thread! First of all, allow me to say how ressourceful this forum can be! What a great community! Ok, back to my issue now :( I've just ordered the B12 Pro-Kit. It's on its way :) While browsing this forum, I stumbled on a post whereby the author had some issues...
  19. Alfa Giulietta
    I just had my MOT and it failed because of the following 001 Nearside front suspension arm ball joint dust cover excessively deteriorated so that it no longer prevents the ingress of dirt [2.4.G.2] The car has 75.000 miles and is a 2010 They quoted 189£ to replace the entire upper control...
  20. Alfa 164 & 166
    As these cars move into classic territory thought a thread pointing out where the Rust can be found would be helpful to existing, new and prospective owners. Couple of us seem to be pulling these cars apart at the moment, so a pic or two of the hidden rust posted up, may save others in the...
