    Hello Guys Here is a though one. Anyone knows how to replace the Selespeed clutch actuation hydraulic system fuid? (TUTELA TOP 4 x 0,038 litres) My Brera Selespeed owner´s manual indicates that it needs to be replaced every 2 years and transmission fluid checked every year (Selespeed...

    Hi there I was wondering if anyone can help me. My Missus has a 2006 Fiat panda dualogic with 92k miles. I have noticed that it is starting to hold the gears for much longer when accelerating (usually 4.5 - 5 thou RPM). I suspect that maybe the hydraulic fluid might need topping up. I have tried...

    Hi I have a 2008 2.2 ltd brera spider, the roof has an intimitent problem, I have read the threads and I am completely lost. I have looked at the pump which has fluid in, and all the cogs etc look like they have grease on, which FIAT put on a while ago. If I need to top up, what fluid do I...

    My Brera 2.2 is with a local specialist getting the gearbox bearings, DMF & clutch replaced. They've recommended using ATF fluid in the box as they say the standard oil is too heavy? I've never heard of this & can't find anything here on the forum, so has anyone else done this or have any...

    I noticed that the fluid was needing topped up a couple of weeks ago so I filled it just below the Max mark. Today while out driving I noticed the fluid light starting to flicker on the dash. Checked the level and fluid has dropped again. I pumped the brakes and checked underneath on all...

    So I've decided to replace standard 1.6 TS front brake disks with v6 ventilated ones. Fitted calipers and new pads and put everything together. Had the time to do the right side only, leaving the left side for tomorrow. In the process, hose was left aside and most of the fluid drained from the...

    Hi, I am new to the Alfa club, and have a new question, for some advice. I have had my 147 TS 2.0 2004, for around 4 months now. Lets say it has cost me a fair amount of money so far. I have had the rocker gasket replace to pass the recent MOT, as a fair amount of oil was dripping down below the...

    So from what I've read I need to change the power steering fluid from red to green. What's the best way to drain it? I'm getting an odd sound from under the bonnet when the car is stationary and I turn the steering wheel full lock left or right. Anyone know what this could be? Cheers in...

    So after washing the car its looking nice and shiny we set out to go to the local pub for my brothers birthday ,when I go to brake my foot goes right to floor with very little resistance and not really breaking that much at all. Luckily there was nothing in front of me and was not going...

    My powersteering started making strange whining noises recently, especially when turning while stationary. I popped the powersteering bottle cap to find the container completely dry...:cheese: I felt around the bottel, the breather pipe and all lines from it and could not feel any visble...

    Im sure there are load of threads on this topic but the search would only find threads about brakes or fluid, not brake fluid. The stuff in my car I recon is over 3 or 4 years old and needs replacing. What do people recommend? Any-brand DOT 5.1? Ross.

    Would anyone happen to know the capacity/amount of brake/clutch fluid in the 916 2.0 TS , it's a P1 if that makes any difference. Noticed when i began changing ball joint that the rear hose is beyond it's best so going to replace hose and bleed entire system and was wondering if a litre was...

    Afternoon all, I decided to take the GTA off the road today for a couple of weeks to get the wheels refurbed (doing them myself) and noticed a layer of ATF fluid underneath the ally tray. So at first I thought it was a issue with the steering, but turns out the retaining plate holding the...
  16. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Sorry for asking a simple question but I'm on my phone just now and searching is a real pita. So back too it, the fluid in the reservoir for the hood looks a little low and needs topping up. Is there specific fluid I need to use or will steering fluid from halfrauds do the job? Cheers in...

    Hey guys I just took my car to safety brake and clutch to have the brake fluid flushed and replaced with new fluid. Before the job was done, my brake pedal felt a tad bit soft, but braking was still quite snappy and still felt safe. After the flush the pedal had to be pressed all the way down...

    Hi guys, I know this topic has been done to the death. But if my reservoir is not frothing, can I get away with just a flush? It's hard for me to understand why a reservoir would need changing if the fluid is what causes the issues.. Shouldn't the reservoir not matter? It could be a coke...

    Hi, My Brake reservoir leaks on top and I can oly think it is the cap. I have been looking for one on ebay and came across this. Question is, will it fit my 2.0TS spider...
