    My MY18 Veloce has developed a knocking from the driverside rear suspension when going over bumps. Have had a look (as much as I can without being on a ramp) for a broken spring but can't see anything obvious. Need to get it into the garage for its 3rd year service anyway but anyone else had...

    I bought this Facelift 147 2006-2010 bumper pt.no 156051362 2 years ago from a German seller to replace the rather scuffed original on my car. It's brand new, factory sprayed in black, never been fitted to any car. There is no damage and not a mark on it aside from two tiny 3mm edge surface...

    Hello everyone! I have problems with the rear right side caliper. It needs to be changed. Problem is, the original part cost a fortune here in Norway and is pretty damn expensive elsewhere too. So I thought I'll buy a "pirate" part. But which one? There seems to be 2 different types around: -...

    OK, I know its marmite thing but I have a very unique (dare I say rare) original zender (alfa part number accessory) 2nd 'stradling' spoiler. It wraps around the rear window and fits to the c pillars. Also it has bit in the centre that rests on the window. When offered up it naturally falls...

    Gtv 3.2 I have upgraded fronts to 330s, are there any upgrades for the rears? And if so does it make a difference and how will it impact on the balance between front and rear eg will the rears lock up due to system unbalanced?

    So I'm refurbishing my brakes and I've noticed something with the rear brakes. I have a 2005 156 V6 Sportwagon with 276mm rear discs. However, the calipers only take brake pads which don't fit the entire width of the rear disc. When the rear discs were changed from 251mm to 276mm were the...

    Tried to remove it this weekend but it's stuck, violence isn't working so any pointers appreciated! The two locating loops are free of the plastic sockets but it's caught on something under the base, the squab is slightly forward and it won't drop back down into the (broken) plastic sockets...

    hey,guys, I have an issue with the switch for one of the rear windows (the one on the drivers side). when operated from the switch on its own door it works fine. But when operated from the drivers switch, it only goes down no matter if you pish or pull.Any advice?

    Hi, Does anybody know which colour the wire for the rear window wiper is or does anybody have a wire diagram? I think it is broken in the loom, but it's easier to fix, if I know what I am looking for... Thanks...

    My GTV and Spider have between them needed 3 rear wheel bearings replacing for their last MOTs. I paid to get the first one done and did the last couple myself after some really helpful advice on here. It is fairly straightforward so here’s how... First of all tools. You’ll need a Jack , axle...

    While driving last night I started to hear and feel a dull thud from the rear of the car, as I am still waiting to get the rear suspension work done I had some depressing thoughts before I had a chance to stop to check. Turns out the rubber mount on the right side of rear silencer had snapped...

    Hi guys, does anyone know the difference between the Lucas rear calipers for the standard 147 with 276mm discs and the ones fitted to a gta? they have different part numbers but they use the same pads and discs, I really need a caliper but I can't find the ones that are allegedly specifically...

    Trying to finish my suspension replacement and feel that I am falling at the final hurdle. Trying to put rear Koni yellow shocks in place. Can anyone help? First, I’m correct that the top is the larger chamber as shown the in the photo? If that is correct, does anyone know why it doesn’t fit...

    Anyone experiencing excessive rear tyre wear on their Alfa 159 saloon? Last 2 tyre replacements and they are going off really quick, tyre pressures correct, but firstly go off on the edge then the rest. Is the car heavy on the rear in bends? Both sets have been 2 types of Goodyears.

    Hello everyone. I was doing brake fluid change today and front brake hoses and came across deterioration of something with the rear shocks. Is it just the top of the dust boot cover finally giving up the ghost? If so, does it need replacement urgently or can it wait 6 or so months. How hard is...
