    Alfa MiTo
    I'm wondering if anyone knows if a 2009 155 TB MiTo would have brake pad sensors in the the front/back, as I stupidly forgot to check before I left it parked 50min away. I'm 99% sure that there are not sensors in the back, but seem to remember a cut wire in the front. It's just that I can't...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi, I am changing the front discs and pads on my 2.0 JTDm, although I am struggling to remove this rigid brake pipe clip on the strut (nervous about damaging the pipe!) which will allow me to move the caliper out of the way. I have cleaned around the area but still unsure. Hoping someone on the...
