  1. Alfa Giulietta
    Hi all, Just got my first Alfa, a 2015 Giulietta QV! In my old car, because it wasn't anywhere near as special, I was happy to shove a tarpaulin down and put my muddy mountain bike in the back. This won't be happening with this car. Ideally, I'd want to fit a removable towbar and get a rack...

    Evening all, My steering has started to present an issue which I'm trying to identify which part is faulty or what the cause is. The symptoms are: As i am driving the car will steer perfectly normal for most of my journey, but every so often, particularly when driving straight for a period...
  3. Alfa GTA
    If you had bought a used steering rack for a 156 GTA, are there any identifying features you could look for to confirm it was indeed a 156 GTA rack as opposed to a GT or 147 rack? I would have tried to measure the rack ends but they seem to have fused with the track rod end... I presume there is...
  4. Alfa GTA
    I bought a pair of steering rack ends for my GTA a while back, from the looks of it they're around 235mm in length. Does anyone know if this is the correct part for a GTA? Thanks in advance. :thumbs:

    Hi, all I was just wondering does anyone have any guides as to how to replace the steering rack on an Alfa Romeo Brera? As I had an issue with a leaking high-pressure line on mine and I fixed that with compression fittings and a copper pipe. But now it has decided to start leaking from the...

    Hi all, I snapped the plastic ignition barrel assembly on my 1998 156 2.5V6 in half. The parts still fit together and the car runs, but if I forget to hold them together when removing the key, the barrel separates. I have found a workshop that does plastic welding, but they can't work with the...

    Hi guys, Any recommendations for my 159 saloon?
  16. Alfa Giulietta
    The access is difficult. It is above the exhaust pipe, so maybe pulling it to the side is an option. Has anyone here replaced the eps rack?
  17. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Anyone know where I can get a steering rack rebuilt properly? (I think I know the answer to this but thought I'd let you make the suggestion!) Many thanks in advance..... :tired:

    2003 Gtv JTS - Cardiff South Wales - Hi guys found a puddle of power steering fluid under the car, after jacking the car up found a pas pipe coming down from the back of the pump leaking from under thick rubber outer covering. As it was raining didn't get chance to look in depth at it plus...
  19. Alfa Giulietta
    So apart from taking me to work the Giulietta responsibilities has increased.. Now has to get the mountain bikes to the great outdoors. Had a Saris previously on my Gtv which held the bikes horizontally on her back but this model holds them vertically which is great for the narrow country...
  20. Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I am trying to source a replacement steering rack for a 2.4 Brera. Does any on know whether the rack for the 159 is the same part as the Brera. On Eper they have different part numbers - but are they in fact the same part? The reason I ask is the 159 item is available for about £200 cheaper for...
