I refilled the ac gas in my Alfa Romeo 156 last weekend, and noticed the valve caps were missing, don't know whether it misplaced after refilling. Does anybody have an idea from where to get them? There's no nearby scrapyard. Any recommended link from where I could get them?
A quick search on the forum yielded no results, so here we go: how does one remove the 4 air vents from the dashboard? Specifically, the 4 round front-facing ones.
If I recall from the 159, it takes two J-shaped pieces of wire/metal and a firm tug to pull them free. Is it the same...
I viewed a 1.9 jtdm GT today, which drove well, no issues I could see with engine and mechanicals, interior was fine, paint in general was ok, with a few scuffs and scratches that could be improved with the polishing mop and made more presentable, but would require bodyshop and paint to be...
My 2.4 159 ti head gasket is cracked. Can anyone suggest the best place to source a replacement?
It’s a 59 plate auto, are the 2.4 heads the same throughout the model years? Any other cars that also have the same head (166 etc)
Alternatively if anyone wants to buy an auto 159 ti...
I just took possession of a 2007 147 1.6ts Collezione in Stromboli grey. took it knowing there was a slight issue with the sump leaking, however it's a lot worse than that!! I got it up in the air and spotted a bit more than that!
it's hit something from underneath so hard and...
Ive recently bought a 156 '05 with original system still in. It seemed ok at first but now i realise the cd jumps/skips like hell over bumps etc so its probably seen better days. Thr suspension does need some attention nsf but im going to guess that once its sorted, the cd jumping wont be...
I want to take out the standard aerial mechanism - not working correctly - from my 916 GTV and fit a replacement stock aerial mechanism which I have sourced.
I have looked at the Tech info guides stickies but do not see any “how to guide” on this subject.

Can anybody recommend an Alfa specialist in the Banbury area (or Oxford, Northampton, Leamington, Milton Keynes etc) who could replace the cam belt and water pump on a brand new 2.5V6 engine (on a pallet)?
Would be good if they could also fit Quaife LSD to gearbox.
Even better if they can...
I joined this forum to learn all about Mito's as my 17-yr old Daughter has fallen in love with them, and the lower-power versions are pretty good on learner / new driver insurance. Not an Alfa noob - years spent under Alfasuds and GTVs when I had more forgiving joints.
I've been looking...
The CD player in my phase 1 spider has given up the ghost. Apparently the laser is the problem, does anyone have one of these surplus to requirements that they'd like to sell or know where I might get one?
According to fleabay the only place that seems to have one is in Florida & I don't...
I have just bought (24 Dec) an Alfa 156 Selespeed 16V TS (114 bhp) sedan, 2001 model.
I am looking for further information relating to the timing belt, balance belt, water pump, cam variator, etc. after researching the web for the last week or so, learning heaps, but now I want to ask...
I'm going to be fitting new discs and pads on my Brembo equipped Giulietta tomorrow. Can anyone give me a guide to the socket(s) needed to remove the calipers? Are they TX Star heads or standard?
I have power problems that no mechanic can seem to find or fix! This is the first time I have ever poster anything on here so I will try and give as much detail as possible...
When I first start the engine and drive the car is fine, pulls smoothly and turbo boost is ok. After a few minutes of...

Thanks in advance for any help provided.
My cheap Japanese ****wagon needs a new pair of fronts - I dunno what they are 205/60-16s or 205/65-16s or something like that.
I'll ring my local backstreets*, but also wondered if people had recommendations for cheap half decent rubbers?
* my fave local backstreet once saved me...
We have a good 38k mile JTS that was written off due to some dodgy guys in a Beemer who have probably claimed whiplash.
Anyway the car needs a front bumper, grill and bonnet in Grigio Stromboli. Any assistance advice appreciated.
