  1. Headlamp lens replaced.

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Just back in after 2.5 hours replacing my headlamp lens, I forgot to take pictures in my excitement to get it done though. I got a good second hand one from a breakers but because it wasn't a Cloverleaf one I had to swap out the silver trim inside the lens for my own black one. Fairly easy to...
  2. Carrier bushing replaced

    Alfa 164 & 166
    The best of all, I could do it in-place, without removing the brakes, leaving the dust shield intact! After several months suffering a strange behaviour on the rear, thinking that the bushings were ok (replaced them 3 years ago, never buying Moog again, crap!!!), checked them and they were...
  3. Handbrake adjuster replaced, now disc won't fit

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Help! You know those jobs you start thinking they'll be straightforward...? I set out to tighten up the handbrake using the adjuster mechanism. When I looked closely at the adjuster, the brass cog had completely stripped so there was no way to turn it without getting close to the shoes. So, I...
  4. Bosch ABS 0 273 004 495 replaced with 166 ABS module

    South Africa
    I haven't seen this info anywhere else before so I'm posting it here. After months of searching through pics of Alfa ABS modules, I think I've struck gold. The 166 ABS module 0 273 004 228 has the same pin configuration as the Bosch 0 273 004 495 found in 2001 phase 2 GTV's. The modules ending...
  5. Replaced power steering hose - refilling oil?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi I have just replaced the power steering hose from pump to rack on my 159 Ti 2.4 after the short hose sprung a leak. All the oil drained out when doing this so how do I refill the system without damaging the pump? I filled the reservoir but it doesn’t seem to fill much of the system. Hope...
  6. Replaced turbo on 2003 147 1.9 Jtd 16v. Questions.

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi. Just attempted replacing the turbo on my diesel 147 16v. Tough job for a non mechanic but job done. Now the questions. I put oil into the inlet pipe of the turbo and turned it by hand. Used turbo off a 80000 miles engine which was running perfectly that I bought for £100 including gearbox...
  7. Replaced my lower front grille.

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Another 5 minute job that turned out to be more involved.... Had to take the bumper off again (got it down to a fine art now) Tight fit these they definitely didn't design them to fall off! Some pictures below...
  8. Replaced "sealed for life" gearbox fluid

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    So after reading through multiple thread and guides on here. i decided to change the transmission fluid, the behavior of gearbox isn't the best, hesitate to change, grumpy etc. I've done staged transmission fluid changes on other cars in the past, so it was pretty run of mill. I didn't use...
  9. Wishbone problem -should all be replaced?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    On the last MOT check there was a play found on the left lower wishbone so I have to replace it. Everybody tells me to replace both lower arms with new ones (probably i will go for TRW or Delphi, are there any cheaper reliable options?) I have 115.000 Kms on the clock, with a lowered...
  10. Had a sensor replaced after nearly 10 years

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I'm a couple of months shy of owning my GTV for 10 years and only this week had to change a sensor. Was a lambda sensor, only needed to be replaced as the flexi pipe was blowing and the sensor wouldn't budge. I know the previous owner changed the MAF but I expected to have needed to replace it...
  11. O2/Lambda Sensor to be replaced.

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Afternoon, Brera 3.2 V6 owner. Had an EML light a couple weeks ago, scanned it at a friends came up with P0136 O2 Sensor Circuit Malfunction (Bank 1 Sensor 2) if my memory serves me right. Reset the light as the sensor seemed to be working fine whilst the computer was plugged in, about a week...

  13. Brera S console Panel Replaced

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    The old console panel in my Brera S was looking rather scabby after previous owners keys and air freshener had taken the surface off. Annoyed me every time i got in the car. Dealer finally tracked down a new one after many false attempts trying to get the one with the right finish. The cheaper...
  14. Loud injectors rattle 2.4 200 - injectors replaced

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hello guys. First of all many apologies for my english skills - this is not my native language. I am now experiencing an issue with my 2.4 injectors, which are making very bad rattling noise. I was trying dyno run which showed quite significant loss of power and torque. I also experienced...
  15. GT Blackline replaced gear knob

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    The gear knob in my GT blackline had peeled horribly (was like this when I bought it) and thus it got to the stage where it needed replacing. I saw this one and thought it fit perfectly with the interior trim of the blackline: pomello - special pelle red seam It was delivered to my work today...
  16. Replaced fan blower motor. Now ICS says OFF

    Alfa 164 & 166
    I just replaced my fan blower motor, but now the ICS says OFF on my 2004 Alfa Romeo 166. I looked at all the fuses and relays under the hood and inside the car, but there are no obvious signs of anything bad. Did I miss any connections? The heat worked before, but the fan didn't work. Now the...
  17. Has anyone replaced one of these?

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Any hints or tips on how to replace one of these? I don't even know what it's called. Thanks in advance.
  18. how i replaced the rear brake pipes

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    As this is a common corrosion and failure point I thought i would post how i did it, I'm always asking questions so i thought it about time i repaid the compliment. This post is on how i replaced the rear brake pipes and refurbished the later version of the compensator. The car has always just...
  19. Is this an exhaust downpipe? Need replaced to pass MOT

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi guys, I was just wondering if these parts (seen and highlighted in the photos) are indeed the front and rear downpipes ? My garage says both need replacing so I went down to take some photos just now. My car is the phase 2 3.0l v6 GTV and I actually bought a replacement (pictured) off...
