  2. New Left front strut top mount on eBay

    I set up an alert ages ago and it has just thrown this up. Someone is making a good mark up though. About twice the main dealer price as I recall. It would apear to be located in France.
  3. Ball-joint collant - lower wishbone front

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Today, whilst it must be hottest day of the year, I took the challenge of replacing a front wheel bearing+hub at the front. Prepared as I was, a.o. the great guide made by Chris_155 for this, I wasn't expecting that much issue losening the ball-joints (track-rod, upper and lower wishbone). I...
  4. Front wheel arch liners

    Alfa GTA
    My O/S front liner has come loose and the bottom 6 inches has disappeared! I've done a search and found some threads from a couple of years back, which didn't sound promising in terms of replacement availability. Do we know if there are any available? Cheers, Muskie
  5. Front foglight replacement on 156 Facelift

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi , I have a Facelift 156 and I need to replace the driver's side front fog light. I have had a look in the manual and it says that you need to access the bulb cover from underneath the car. I suppose that means engine under tray out so I was wondering if there's another way to do it, ie: from...

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi, the front badge on my lovely Giulietta was badly faded so I bought a new one, unfortunately it doesn’t seem to fit. Is this the wrong badge?
  7. 159 front crash

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Bumped into a car... bonnet, bumper, radiator all caved in but car still drives and engine temp. is normal. Looks worse than it might be as front is crumpled. Insurance assumes financial write off... should I assume or could this be an easy fix?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I'll not be doing this any time soon but when I do come to replace them I'll do what I did with an Impreza I owned some years ago. After replacing the bushes I still had a 'knock', I then removed the new bushes, a 10 minute job on an Impreza, and replaced them with ones 1mm smaller, it's a...
  10. TS Front Shocks

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Is there much choice of front shocks for the 2.0 TS (phase 1) these days? I'm planning a suspension refresh but I've only come across TRW front shocks, or unbranded from shop4parts. Seems to be a few options for rear shocks but not for the fronts.

    Alfa Giulietta
    I know that the old grille car part numbers were 156090413 (right) and 156090415 (left). Unfortunately After spending few hours on the search, I wasn't able to find the part number for the new one (after the face-lift). After changing to the new grille (gqv 2010), the difference between the...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi, I’m almost due to have the front discs replaced on my 147 JTD 16v.. I’ve seen some MTECH drilled/slotted discs that do look damn good & not a lot different in price to std discs. Does anyone have any experience with these? How do they perform compared to std discs. Thanks for any info

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi - Can anyone with experience of removing the front bumper on a GT please tell me: 1. How easy is it to do with limited space/tools? Do front wheels need to come of? How long should the job take for someone without prior experience? 2. How long/how much for a garage (ie with ramps...
  17. Front suspension - splitting fork from damper?

    Alfa 164 & 166
    I'm attempting to replace the front dampers on my 166. The initial dis-assembly was straightforward enough, but I'm stuck on removing the bolt that clamps the damper into the bottom fork. The nut comes off fine, but the bolt itself won't even turn (step 4 in the image below). I've split the...

    I have the Bendix calipers on my phase 1 GTV (writing on the calipers says FN 54/22). I've seen some Bosch calipers with FN 54/22 on them - although the caliper design seems slightly different and the carriers look a little different too. Does anyone know if the Bosch caliper can be used as a...
  20. Front brake hose

    Alfa GTA
    I have my MOT coming up and upon checking the front brake hose on my 156 GTA, there are signs of the rubber cracking on the bends. Wasn’t flagged up as an advisory last year, so wanted to know if it’s an MOT failure with the new updated MOT regulations.🤔. I also noticed that the...
