  1. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Ph1 2.0. Failed the mot on emissions and all readings pointed to the cat, bought a new one. Removed the old one, gasket at either end, cleaned up the surfaces and popped down the motor factors and bought 2 new gaskets. Little smear of paste then bolted everything up, started the engine and it’s...
  2. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Morning all I have a 147 1.6 TS and for the last couple of months I've had "noise" that comes during initial acceleration (it doesn't continue as you accelerate away) it also comes as you slow and as you go over bumps. I can only describe it as a metallic rattle and whilst you can only really...
  3. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hi, I need to replace the front driver side brake flexi pipe on my '09 159 and it's proving to be an absolute PITA sourcing the pipe. I have tried my local car shops and breakers and none of them have the correct part. The pipe that has come off my car has female connectors on both ends and...

    Hep! I need to know the dimensions of the exhaust flexi pipes of the 1998 166 3.0? Can anyone please help?

  6. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    I want to get some braided flexis for my 2009 Brera but everyone I have contacted only lists the long front pipes that go to the caliper. My car has the shorter flexi which goes to a solid pipe from the caliper which I want to keep. Has anyone got the spec or know of a supplier of the short...
  7. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    156 TS 2.0 CF2 Flexi rubber section (20 cm approx) of the hydraulic line into clutch slave has been damaged by the mechanic who has just swapped my clutch. It's been botched with a jubilee clip for now - which works. Part OE 60654482 is unavailable... Does anyone have a breaker they could...
  8. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Anyone know what the dimensions are of the front flexi exhaust (pre cat) on the 2.2 159? Mines developed a split so will be an MOT fail, lots of different sizes listed online and even The Alfa Workshop couldn't tell me. Thanks.
  9. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I've had a few fairly subtle issues recently: - not sounding as peachy as usual - sometimes running well but sometimes lacking low down torque - wandering idle - randomly revving at up to 3000 rpm at idle This was all quite subtle over about a year or so. Last week the flexi exhaust pipes...
  10. Alfa GTA
    Hi all I have searched and searched and can't seem to find the answer, but does anyone know what size the exhaust flexi bit is on the v6 busso? In one post someone suggested 6x3" but it was never confirmed. How hard is it to replace the whole section of pipe with the flexi in? Or is it...

  12. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Formerly Knoppy1987 - but having troubles like a few others on passwords. As the thread suggests, I had both downpipes replaced recently on my GTV 3.0 V6 CF2 and the flexi section on the shorter pipe is buzzing initially before turning into a full on noisy and horrible blow. The originals did...
  13. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Anyone got the diameter and length of the front exhaust flexi for a 156 2.0 JTS (2004)? Want to get one of those weld in thingys but they don't have one listed for my model. Seller says if I give them pipe diameter and length they can find one for me. Not near the car now and need to order it...
  14. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Can anyone reccomend a very good place to get some stainless downpipes from? Mine seems to be on their way out and i have a leak on the front bank as it goes up to the manifold. What sort of price am i looking at?
  15. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hi, Recently had my Brera 3.2 Q4 in for a service at the local garage. Mechanic there tells me that the front flexible pipe (for the rearmost bank of cylinders) is leaking a bit at the flexi bit itself. I had the other flexi pipe replaced earlier in the year, which was apparently...
  16. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Recently got myself into another 156 2.4, after stupidly selling my 20v :( The 10v in question is in need of some TLC so I've chipping away at the niggles and its just had a service and come back to me with some flat spot in the RPM range, after checking the hoses the turbo inlet hose has a...
  17. The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Hopefully a quickie. The new hose keep slipping off the rigid plastic intake which goes on to the plenum. This is despite a new strap clamp. It seems the plastic is too smooth to grip on to. The car runs like a bucket then stalls when the pipe slips off. My thoughts are clean both surfaces...
  18. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi, I've been lurking on the board for a while now and found it a really good resource, top stuff. I've exercised the forum search but couldn't find an answer to my question, if I have missed a thread please point me in the right direction. I need to change the front flexi hoses on a GTV Cup...

    Spider 2.0 http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v70/alexisbad/alfa%20romeo/DSC_0003_3.jpg Ive removed the clip, I was under the impression the flexi line would simply pull away from the permanent line at the union... but its solid and not going anywhere. Solid through gunk/corrosion, or do I...
  20. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I've got a nearly-new flexi to get rid of from my 156 JTS, one of these: http://www.alfaworkshop.co.uk/images/55182480-2404-1-800.jpg (the whole thing was replaced with a stainless system) I see a few on eBay claiming they fit the JTS-engined GTs & GTV/Spiders as well, but I don't want to...
