  1. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hi All, I was completing an oil change on my Alfa 159 3.2 and all was going well until I went to change the filter. When I tried to remove the cap, the nut at the bottom broke off which left a crack/hole on the cap. I ordered a replacement on ebay but it doesn't fit. Anyone have any ideas of...

    Hi folks, I noticed my TBi started marking its spot. It used to have a leak at the heat exchanger, but it was replaced fully and serviced at the same time somewhere last year. I took the sump "guard" off and it was a big mess. Seems the filter housing is leaking a little on the driveshaft...

    Need to replace the plastic key housing... I see plenty available, but don't see any quality reviews on Amazon etc. Can anyone recommend one that's hassle free?

    Hi all. Does anyone know what the yellow dot is on the black oil filter housing on a QV? I know it sounds trivial but Ive had my car in for its 1st service (at a dealership who will remain nameless!) and because I negotiated a 'free' first service when I purchased my ex demo QV, Ive had my...

    Fitted new thermostat housing yesterday and this happened while out in it. Temp didn't move above 90, will I have wrecked the engine and what would have caused this? Sent from my P8_Mini using Tapatalk

    Hi fellow enthusiasts, I live down under in Australia and need to replace my thermostat housing on my 1998 phase1 2.0L GTV TS, due to the T piece underneath breaking off. Everywhere Auto shop I’ve tried in Australia is quoting me on a thermostat housing that doesn’t have that T piece connection...

    I'm having a hard time finding the right part numbers for those seals. There are 3 pipes coming from the engine that connect to the thermostat housing unit. Each of them has a different diameter. Each pipe has 2 seals. For one of them, the pipe coming from the water pump it should be this one...

    My JTS has rather corroded screws for holding the top to the housing. Are these double helix screws available or has anyone come up with a better solution? I don't want the black generic screws BTW as they corrode faster than originals.

    Removed the air filter box yesterday to facilitate removal of the gearbox. Firstly the nuts and semi-circular bracket holding the MAF to the top of the air box lid are so corroded they won't release before turning the captive studs in the plastic. Is this going to necessitate a complete new...

    Hi Guys, Are there various air filter housings for 2.0 TS? One fo the threaded inserts on mine has broken; so opened this up when I had my rad replaced and the front of the car in pieces. Went to fit a new filter, BUT the housing doesn't seem to seal both ends. If you look at image 2042...

    Been thinking of designing and casting a new stat housing to take a standard insert instead of having to replace the whole assembly. If it works, does anyone want one? I'd be 3D printing the parts and using lost plastic casting to cast them in aluminium from old heads and random car parts that...

    So I bought some LED sidelight bulbs to match my 6000k HID headlights. However... they were slightly wider than normal halogen bulbs and turns out when I tried to pull them out they have fallen through into the headlight housing on both sides... quite simply, this annoys me!

    Looking to buy one that looks identical to my 3.0 version but vendor states it's suitable for 3.2 only?

    Dear all, Please help! I've just brought my first Alfa - a 2002 lusso spider and the ignition barrel has failed two days after purchase... ? I've looked everywhere but can't find a replacement part - the part no. Is TRW sipes 6013. Does anyone know where I can find one or one which will...
  17. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hi all, I'm looking to upgrade my dipped lights to HID bulbs and have done some trawling through previous posts, some of which indicate some ballasts fit inside the light housing but couldn't find any info on which exact models do. I would prefer this option so they aren't so noticeable when...

    Hi, my gt is poorly. Engine has no power and smokes a lot. Goes into limp mode at 3500 revs. I have removed egr because of misfiring at low revs - cured that - but not remapped yet. I noticed when the problems started and since then an air induction noise and turbo whistle. great but no power. I...

    *Solved* Remove oil filter from housing Hi Guys, I'm stuck while changing the oil filter. I don't seem to get the oil filter separate from the housing. I tried holding the housing and turning the little plastic thing on the bottom (all directions) including pushing and pulling while turning...
