  1. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all, On Friday I will be getting my new (well, not quite :) ) 156 1.9 JTD. The car was advertised as a Multijet 140 HP, which is in agreement with what the VIN check revealed. However when I entered the car's registration no. on an online insurance quotation form, it came back as an 8V 115...

    I need to send a V62 off to get my V5, as the dealer has "lost" the original, but I do have the v5c/2. So I'm filling the form out and not exactly sure what number to put. There are two plates on the front cross member under the bonnet. ZARxxx (I think this is the VIN without the *) but on...

    Hello everybody, I recently got airbag light. I definitely caused it by myself during all speakers replacement in my car. I know I didn't disconnect any airbag wiring, but I may have touched some wires... Here is the fault what I am getting now...

    Old chestnut - four wheel alignment required, but before I get that done, I need to replace both rear suspension arms and bushes (the rear rear arms rather than the front rear arms, if that makes sense). I checked shop4parts and found this - Fiat & Alfa Romeo Parts Specialist.Parts for Alfa...

    Hi all, I have a 55 plate 156 jtd sport and some clever a*** decided to hit my boot and do a runner. I'm fully comp insurance but have £600 excess (gotta get the cost down somehow) so a claim isn't an option. I've looked on ebay for a new boot but are there any differences between the models...

    Hi, I booked the car in with my local specialist in order to have "clicking" noise checked - I noticed it after switching to winter tires. It's only audible at low speeds and now it only happens when turning - a bit earlier it was clicking all the time. The guy advised me the following part...

    I have bought a replacement engine for my S4 Spider and could do with some help identifying what car the "new" engine came from and if there are any likely issues. The engine number of the original engine is ARO 1588*011243 The engine number of the replacement engine is ARO 1544*603248 I will...

    Hi guys, I was doing a quick wipe down of my rather dusty engine bay today when I noticed a loose piece of piping lodged in the side of my engine bay. It's a thin black pipe that's around 7 inches in length with the text "A831 >EPDM< 5 3L 14:08 T1 TRELLEBORG" inscribed on it. Was disconnected...

    I have been offered a set of 16" teledial wheels to run my GT on in the winter - with winter tyres. They have probably come off a 156 but the seller is not sure. Is the ET (offset) stamped anywhere on the wheel?

    Hi fellow S4 owners, does anyone know what this electrical connector is for, on a Spider S4? It looks rather important with BIG red wires coming and going from it! I can't locate it in my W/shop manual. It is located on the left hand side of engine compartment (on my lhd car). Thanx!
  16. Engines (TS, JTS, JTD & V6)
    Anyone who can tell me how to identify the V6-version from the stamped numbers on the engineblock? Especially I want to know the difference between a 2.5 V6 and a 1st. generation 3.0L from a 166 or GTV. A link maybe?
  17. Alfa 147, 156 & GT

    Been trying to find out if my 156 '03 2.5 SW has nivomat dampers in the rear... This far I have come to the conclusion that the following original Alfa part numbers are nivomat: 60665438 60668186 This is found out by looking at eper, which shows 2 sorts of dampers for the 156 SW in the image...

    I am struggling to establish the spec level of my 156 SW Sele…. It has Momo leather, carbon effect dash, fogs, roof bars, black dials with red figures I am under the impression this is a Lusso, but there is nothing that confirms this, someone has commented it could have the sport pack as SW’s...
