  1. Braided brake lines for 2.4JTDm SW

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I’ve read all the relevant threads and even called Autolusso today (they don’t do them anymore). Still not sure how to go ahead with this. I’m having new discs and pads (among other things) next week and thought it would be a good idea to also upgrade to braided brake lines at the same time...
  2. Free Goodridge Brake Lines

    Alfa 145 & 146
    Would anyone like a set of Goodridge brakelines, brand new bought with intention of putting them on my track car many moons ago, never got around to it, they've sat in several garages ever since. Would just like the postage which I guess would be about a fiver.
  3. 156 rear brake lines

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Quick questions folks on my 156 sportwagon (2002). I have a pin hole in the copper brake pipe just before it joins onto the flexi (rear nearside). Do the copper pipe(s) run direct straight to the front or is there a join at the rear. Not looked yet (not with the car) and the only chance I'll...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT

I would rather replace the whole line right back to the abs pump. Just looking for advice on how difficult it is to remove. Do...
  5. V6 Brake Lines

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi guys - first post here! Looking for some recommendations.. I tried fitting some MTEC discs and pads to my V6 yesterday - Was all going smoothly until I couldn't get one of the pistons to go back in far enough to allow the new pads in. I think this is the reason this caliper is binding...
  6. Adjusting shut lines / door gap on GT

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hullo again! My GT has imperfect shut lines on the driver side door. The same door has a noisy check strap which I'm going to replace. While I'm inside there, are there any hints or guides on how to get the shut lines... just so?

Mainly talking about the front lines now. As we know the front line normally is a shorter piece, with female...

  19. Braided Brake Lines

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I'm just about to get some from Alfisti. I know I have 330mm brake setup but I'm not sure if I need Varient 2 (710mm length with the line screwed directly into the caliper) or Varient 3 (500mm length with the line connected to the caliper by a "short piece of solid metal". Is it as simple as...
