  1. Alfa 156 Lower Wishbone Alignment Help!

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hey Alfisti, Long time reader, first time poster here with what is probably a super simple issue to solve. I had a gear shifter cable end snap on me, so I had to drop the shifter/handbrake tunnel to get the new cables in. For whatever reason, a previous owner/mechanic had installed the front...
  2. Lower dog bone engine/gearbox mount.

    Alfa Giulietta
    For the 2nd time we are having issues with the dogbone/gearbox mount on our G. It is a rubbish design, the hole inside the large end which fits into the subframe is larger than the bolt which goes through it and the mount relies on the clamping force of that bolt to stop the mount moving...

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Since I have my car it never behaved right. Facts: - new Marelli AFM since yesterday - car became even worse ( I am not sure if it was necessary - the new unit reads very different values than MES gives as target, just like the original BOSCH unit did, it reads ca. the double amount of air . In...

  5. 156 2.5v6 lower control arms

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I am in the process of replacing my lower control arms and cannot get the mounting bolts to line up. It appears the bracket is half a hole too short. Trying to line it up with a screw driver does not work as it wont move far enough to line up. I did order 147 arms by mistake but i thought they...

  7. 156 TS O/S front lower engine mounting

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I have seen in the past a couple of posts where members have attached a wheel to the TS O/S front lower engine mounting for ease of use during removal and installation of the engine. I wanted to do the same with a spare mounting I have but I am unable to unscrew the bolt that is attached to...

  10. Lower wishbones - TRW or Delphi

    Alfa GTA
    Hi, I am not impressed :( I fitted brand new OEM lower arms 3 years ago and the drivers side balljoint has already failed at only 20'000 miles despite not hitting any potholes ever on that corner. I have read some conflicting advise on which arms to fit. Many seem to think TRW (I am happy...
  11. Ball-joint collant - lower wishbone front

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Today, whilst it must be hottest day of the year, I took the challenge of replacing a front wheel bearing+hub at the front. Prepared as I was, a.o. the great guide made by Chris_155 for this, I wasn't expecting that much issue losening the ball-joints (track-rod, upper and lower wishbone). I...
  12. Looking for front bumper lower grille (facelift) car part number

    Alfa Giulietta
    I know that the old grille car part numbers were 156090413 (right) and 156090415 (left). Unfortunately After spending few hours on the search, I wasn't able to find the part number for the new one (after the face-lift). After changing to the new grille (gqv 2010), the difference between the...

  15. Do lower wishbones creak when they're shot at?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    hi guys, nice easy one, do the lower wishbones creak loudly once they're done? I got in my Brera 2.4jtdm the other morning, and its developed a horrendous creaking (seemingly overnight?) when driving on bumpy roads, and when turning the wheels while stationary. I instantly thought wishbone...

    Hi wonder if you can help. I have noticed that the car seems to be lower on the drivers side compared to the other side. What do you think this could be. I did have a new strap fitted on this side. Regards vincenzo

  18. Drive shaft issue when changing lower suspension arm

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    This weekend I have had to replace the offside lower suspension arm due to the ball joint failing the MOT. I did the nearside one a couple of years ago without issue. I managed to do the nearside without removing the Disc and Calliper so I thought using the same method would work on the offside...

    Alfa GTA
    Hi, the 147 GTA I've just got developed a squeal which gets louder and higher pitched as the revs increase, the sound also changes as you move the steering wheel, I took it in to my local Alfa Romeo dealer who changed the alternator belt and pulley (£322) but it's still there, any suggestions...
