  1. kerb damage - negative camber

    Alfa Giulietta
    Wife hit o/s rear wheel on high kerb in a car park. The car now has pretty bad negative camber and has been adjusted as much as possible having taken for alignment so something is bent. According to garage it might be the circled part which mounts part 13 on diagram attached. Does anyone know...

    Hi, drive over either a stone or high kerb but anyway it damaged the front spoiler part of my car. Any ideas roughly how much it may be to repair it ?? Thanks,
  4. Altercation with kerb - new tyre/wheel needed

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Doh! Got a bit lost in Harrogate yesterday, and mounted the kerb whilst looking at the wrong sign posts. Result - badly scratched wheel (on the rim edge) and knackered the side wall of my front left tyre. Nursed it home, but now it is completely flat. Anyone know if you can still get the...
  5. Howling front wheel after kerb knock..

    Alfa Giulietta
    HI All Following an act of extreme stupidity I recently skidded into a high kerb in the snow - hard enough to take a 2 inch chunk out of the offside front rim. Luckiliy I had a spare rim and had the tyre, which looks fine (no bulges or scrapes) refitted/balanced to this one. Now though this...
  6. Rode a kerb

    Alfa MiTo
    Misjudged a u turn and mounted A kerb earlier today. There was a graunchy noise and the lining to the front offside wheelarch fell off. What damage do u think I might have done? Tracking?
  7. Car pulling to the right after hitting kerb

    Alfa MiTo
    Was driving in the dark on a wet road. Came to a sharp left turn but car started skidding. I realised what was happening and tried to correct the understeer by applying the brakes gently and giving it extra left steering, but the road was too narrow, so I ended up hitting the center strip (at...

    Alfa 164 & 166

  9. Stupidly high curved kerbs in car parks

    Rant Room
    This isn't a proper rant, or a funny rant, it's just me venting my spleen 12 hours after kerbing one of my hitherto prisitine Ti alloys.:cry: Specifically the long stay car park at Manchester Piccadilly. I'm not a frequent rail user - it's almost 10 years since I last used a train here - I fly...

  11. Drove over a Kerb and wheel detached!

    Alfa GTA
    Well...thought the car was in reverse...pressed the pedal and it goes forward...right wheel jumps the kerb, swipes a sign-post and breaks off :cry: The garage guys say it is about 6K AED (1K Pounds) worth of repairs. Can anyone estimate the damage? ImageShack® - Online Photo and Video Hosting...
  12. Rim kerb

    Alfa Giulietta
    Does Alfa has any codes for colour of Rims for Giulietta? I would need sth for repairing a little scratch. Otherwise I will buy a standard silver paint.
  13. Quickest time to damage the alloys on a kerb?

    Alfa Giulietta
    Ok. Got our nice shiny Giulietta on Saturday and my wife has already scrapped one of the alloys on a kerb.:mad: Apparently it is my fault as I asked her to make sure it was not parked sticking out into the road! No real harm done I suppose, anyone know where to get alloys repaired cheaply? I...

  15. Koni FSD / Eibach Pro kerb clearance?

    Tuning & Upgrades
    Hi, after reading the various threads on suspension upgrades, I am going (probably) for Koni FSD with Eibach pro springs on my GT 1.9. My only worry is the clearance under the front nose when parking over higher kerbs. There does not seem to be much space with the standard set up, so what...
  16. 147 axel noise after hitting kerb?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I wrote off one of my front near side alloys recently (hit curb at about 15-20mph, but didn't mount) replaced the alloy and I got a local garage to check I hadn't bent anything else wheel related, they couldn't see anything but I've noticed a bit of a grinding noise that may be coming from the...

    Alfa 155

  18. Nerfed a kerb - check the tracking?

    General Alfa Discussion
    Hi all, Just under-steered into a kerb on a snowy road here in Berkshire. Low speed, but effectively hit it parallel to the wheel which bothers me. Car felt fine the rest of the way home but would it be wise to get it checked when all this ****ing snow goes away? Jon
  19. Kerb Weights

    General Alfa Discussion
    Hello all, slightly nerdy question as the intermaweb has 2 different definitions of Kerb weight depending on whether you are in the UK or EU (which of course is a contradiction...) In addition of course, our cars are manufactured in Italy which would suggest EU... Is the quoted Kerb Weight of...
  20. Hidden kerb + sump = ££££ :-(

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Took my g/f's dog to the groomer's this lunchtime. It's on an old farmyard, and I pulled up in a disused loading bay. Dropped the dog off, and as I pulled away there was a big "CRUMP" ... :cry: pulled back and saw steam and a dark puddle near the front of the car :eek: Turned the engine off...
