  1. CV joints - strip and rebuild

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    As these are (or should be!) packed with a good quantity of grey moly grease, it's difficult to find out what's where if you are doing this for the first time. I recently removed the driveshafts from the car, stripped and cleaned them, so I thought I would take some pics and compile a guide to...

    Hi y'all I've just replaced my front wheel bearings and broke some of the ball joint nuts while hammering those *******s apart. I bought some standard nuts in the hardwarestore (size m10(track rod) and m14(lower arm)) but they don't fit as the threads of these are to coarse. Does anyone know...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I've had the inner joints and track rod ends replaced on my GT Blackline, but now the locknut on the track rod end is touching the inner edge of the wheel on full lock - both sides. After a bit of investigation, we found that the previous track rod ends were about 20mm longer than the...
  6. A questions regarding CV joints - 147

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Soo, my car started shaking violently left-right and after a visit to the shop, I've had my two inner CV joints replaced. I find it odd that they both failed at the exact same time. I've been wondering, what could've ruined them, is there a component that ,if malfunctioning, can ruin the inner...

    Has anybody recently found a supplier of these items that knows the difference between a 147 GTA and all other forms of 147 and that a 156 GTA is also different? Has anybody also then bought and fitted the parts with no issues? Can anybody give me the definitive part number? A lot of...

  13. Front lower wishbone ball joints

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi guys, I had an advisory on the MOT for my front lower wishbone ball joints. My question is, can you press out the ball joints and replace them rather than changing the whole arm out? I'd rather do that and polybush the old arms whilst they're out and save some cash, especially as I need to...

  16. Are all CV joints the same.

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi, Just discovered this weekend that my Drivers outer CV joint is completely knackered. Are all 2.0ts CV joints the same? The only place that stocks it - Eurocarparts - list it as "Abs = 0"?? To my knowledge there was never a GTV without ABS. Thanks all.
  17. CV Joints

    South Africa
    Hi Guys It seems like the CV's are acting up and I was wondering how do you guys go about it, what has worked and is still working? I suppose Alfa can only sell the complete side shaft and I already used the bond on my house to pay for the MAF so other alternatives include: Having the CV...

    Can anyone help. Think my cv joints (though not sure which one) needs replacing. I've already changed the drivers side inner as the boot split but this didn't stop the knocking sound when turning at slow speed. But whilst I was there, the bolts were loose and after changing, could not torque...
