  1. Halfords EGR cleaner no more.

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Apparently Halfords do no stock diesel EGR cleaner any more. Spoke to one of the staff and he confirmed that they only have the petrol version, no explanation as to why though. On a happier note, I bought the petrol version anyway and cleaned mine, took half an hour but goodness me it's messy...
  2. I Love Halfords!!

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    As some of you may be aware, I was unfortunate to have my steering rack fail a few weeks ago. The power steering fluid I purchased at the time (as I could not get hold of any GI-R quickly) was a recommendation from Halfurds. I mentioned at the time that their computer system was wrong and that...

    Alfa MiTo
    Has anyone had these lights fitted, my main lights not the day ones, one has gone and I spoke with Halfords and he suggested: Halfords own brand 477 - H7 says up to 120% brighter. There are other headlight threads, I know but they were very technical and looked like most could fit their own...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    So following the family two week hols this year, I continued in tradition and got the AA booked in to get me started.

  10. Halfords coolant

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hopefully this'll be a quick simple one. I need to change the thermostat on my 147 TS. I have a 2 litre bottle of premix Halfords coolant left over (still sealed) from when I did the heater matrix on my old Xsara Picasso. I believe it's the organic type. Question is, which of the two Halfords...
  11. Here are the clues, Halfords alarming service

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Halfords MOT dept passed my Alfa 156 this afternoon, with only a wiper blade and 'rewiring' of a non-functioning rear fog light (soldered for £15). :) Relieved to be legal for another year, I threw my bags in the boot and started her up. 'BOOT OPEN' said the display. Funny.:( I re-opened the...

  15. Halfords mispriced diesel fuel filters - a fiver

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Just got a new Fuel filter for the Grande Punto JTD Multijet from Halfords. Looks like they have mispriced as I only paid a fiver for it - £30 on Eurocarparts. The same as most alfa 1.9 multijets (159 and 156 checked, GT looks like it might be different). Grab a bargain before they realise...
