Just been out to go for a quick spin in the Spider and the oil pressure warning light is staying lit. There is no flickering etc. I have checked the oil and the is plenty there although a change is due. There has been no warning of any impending doom but I have recently changed the thermostat...
Hey everyone :)
As we know, the hatchbacks' and saloons' dominance is pretty much over, with the public desiring high-riding SUVs and crossovers. But, as hatchback and saloon sales have shown us, what's popular today, may not be popular tomorrow, so the SUVs and crossovers' crown may slip one...
Need to change the track rod ends.
Any recommendations on aftermarket brands. What are your experiences? Any to avoid?
Will need to have tracking re-checked. Is it zero toe on the 159? Fairly sure it is but wanted to be sure.
I was made aware by a garage that I have some play in my inner tie rods on the steering.
What brands of tie rods and track rod ends should I go for? I have always heard that TRW and Delphi are the best brands to go for?
Is changing these parts a hard job or should it be an okay...
I've had the inner joints and track rod ends replaced on my GT Blackline, but now the locknut on the track rod end is touching the inner edge of the wheel on full lock - both sides.
After a bit of investigation, we found that the previous track rod ends were about 20mm longer than the...
Got a call from the garage today. My 2013 Sportiva is in for a new clutch and cam belt and they have said they need to disconnect the track rods to replace the cam belt, which i thought was unusual. Didn't know that they had to come off for a belt change.
They add that the rods are rusted solid...

There are two different sizes and I forgot to make a note of which goes where. Do the larger of the two pairs of washers go on the toe arm bolts or the other ones? Can anyone remember or does anyone have a pic handy? It's not clear on ePer or eLearn which is which.
I posted a thread recently about an alignment I had one, which wasn't done well even if the track rods were pretty badly seized. Since then I've cooled down a bit and as they're not expensive and they will only continue to be a problem, is it worth purchasing a new pair for them...
I've decided to replace a few parts on the old girl, but I'm in a bit of confusion by the track rod ends.
At Alfa workshop there are different TRW ones for the CF3 and CF4 engines, but the original ALFA part is the same?

Looked at braided brake hose for 156.
Then looked at custom-made braided brake hose and the options to specify all kinds of connectors. I have no idea which is the correct one. But that is not a big problem as kits should be available with the right connectors.
However, anyone looked at the...
changed the drop links, bit of a PITA of a job involving a blowtorch and lots of Anglo Saxon expletives!
Then drive the car and annoying knocking still there? Bugger!
Now ordered a pair of track rod ends, let's see if that works?
Just been through the mot and no movement in anything but noticed...
