Here is a guide on how to remove the rear bumper on alfa 159 saloons.
Removing the bumper allows access to parking sensors/wiring and wiring for the plate lights.
Unless something is stuck, I estimate this to take around one hour.
I know Chris did a fantastic guide for the SW, so I'll link...
Hi all, someone is coming to buy the 147 on Saturday, so I thought it would be a good idea to give it a full service prior to sale, including replacing all 8 spark plugs.
Unfortunately it hasn't gone to plan, the small spark plug on cylinder 1 had rusted, and the coil pack was completely stuck...
I'm looking for the part no for the plastic tool that comes with the car to remove the cap of the front indicator bulb holder.

So I am planning on getting the engine pulled on my 159 Q4 Sportwagon (56 Plate). Plan is to do the timing chain and oil temperature gauge at the same time. Clutch was done less than 6k ago so I wont do that. Is there anything else to do whilst the engine is out?
Also 3 Q's: is the Mace AU...

On a positive note the bleeding has stopped and my...

Hi everyone, I've recently joined this forum as my partner has a Giulietta. She currently has a problem which looks like the throttle pedal needs replacing. Is there any manuals/instructions that cover this? ... the ones I've seen don't touch on this kind of maintenance.
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?
My GTV has a small patch of paint bubbling up very near the upper edge of the rear window.
I might deal with it locally or go for a full respray but either way I need to know how easy is it to remove and re-fit the rear window, if possible to re-fit the same one at all.
So at 62k my M32 gearbox bearings are on the way out. The classic and well documented whining is just starting to get annoying. My intention is to remove the subframe and gearbox, blast and paint the subframe then take the gearbox to a local specialist to have it refurbished with an upgraded end...
