  2. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi So I’ve removed a spring pan to de-rust and apply rust proofing and see that there are 2 holes in the underside with rust inside. Do you have any tips on removing rust from the inside cavities? Thanks Ian
  3. Alfa Giulietta
    Hi all, I recently discovered my '14 plate G (170 MultiAir TCT) was leaking small amounts of oil while on the driveway. Took it to my nearest mechanic and they recommended the sump be replaced. As I understand it, the sump is attached to the gearbox housing with some bolts and so the...
  4. Alfa 164 & 166
    I haven't found any real confirmation that the oil pan on 3.0 12V 164 would be removable while engine in place. I took a look under the car and it sure looks plausible, has somebody tried to remove it?

    Can anyone tell me the size of the bolts in the spring pans on a 98 V6 GTV? Many thanks.
  7. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I know there are countless threads about the old Poly vs OEM question and that this has been discussed to exhaustion but... Upon researching for my own car I have noticed that Superflex make a spring pan outer bush which looks quite different from all the other usual poly bush suppliers. This...
  8. Alfa Giulietta
    Hi all, I'm considering a 2014 1.4 Giulietta with a pan roof - can anyone tell me the advantages and disadvantages of the pan roof rather than the standard metal roof? I mean - can it get damaged or break easily? It looks nice but I don't want a liability. Thanks.
  9. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    So, GTV V6 in for an MOT, service and a SMF/GTA clutch fitting at AlfaWorkshop - 2 days was the plan. Two weeks later I have my car back, serviced and new clutch /SMF, and a major save completed on rust in both inner wheel arches and the floor pans. Pictures attached. Can't recommend...

  11. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I have a 3.2 GTV that has just had its 12th Birthday and has covered just under 50k miles. Last year I had it re-sprayed as the original red had gone the usual several shades of purple and in the course of that work the sill covers came off to reveal extensive corrosion to the inner sill on the...
  12. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I had noticed a bit of knocking from the rear and so booked the car in for a looksee a few weeks ago , when looking under the car when I was cleaning her the other weekend saw that something wasn't quite right- see picture . I took the car to a local garage as didn't fancy driving to...
  13. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    The ride in my T/S Spider is a bit harsh, I have been in a couple of others and mine jolts much more over the lovely pot holed and bumpy roads we have. So I though I would do a bit of preventative maintenance clean up the pans as they are in reasonable condition and replace with some softer...

    Anyone got a Offside (right) Spring Pan Arm they would like to sell? Don't care about bushes as long as the metal is OK, which mine isn't! Yes, I know about Spankdanny's on Fleabay. PM or reply Ta
  15. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Can anyone identify which car this V6 sump was fitted to? I don't think it's 164 as it fouled something when an engine builder attempted to fit it to a 12v Cloverleaf motor. Cheers Guy
  16. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hello all, the belly pan (or whatever they might be called on an Alfa) on my wife's 156 is in a bit of a state. A while back it lost two of its fixings and started sagging at the back. Losing its shape over time, it was only a couple of inches from the ground until I used some stiff wire to...
  17. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I've taken the carpet out of my 156, expecting to find some rust on the floor pan. What I have found is very worrying, especially given the spare wheel well is also suffering right up to the back edge of the boot. NSF: Completely rusted all the way along the join between the sill and the pan...
  18. The Classic Alfa Romeos
    It would appear the threads in the oil pan of my 83 Alfa Romeo Spider have been have somewhat over-tightened. It seeps oil from the plug. :irked: What is the best remedy for fixing this? New oil pan, re-tap existing pan and replace plug with a larger one? Any suggestions welcome. Thanks.
  19. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi, whilst having a new front wishbone fitted today I asked a very reputable alfa specialist to quote on a rear offside floor pan welding as it has corroded. I trust the garage but the quote was for (around) £800 this included undersealing. Does this seem very expensive? I intend to keep this...
  20. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    My car (156 SW) requires de-rusting of the rear floor pan. The drain homes are becoming hole holes. Now I've had a read, and have found a number of informative posts. However, if anyone could shed some light on a last few Qs I'd appreciate it. The rust start inside, so treatment should start...
