    Hi Gents. I am going to remove the heat-shield on my G. The bolts are just so rusty, so I was searching for some good ideas - and stumbled over this. THIS IS NOT MY "INVENTION"! - I have found it in another forum! @ Admin - If this not is allowed, then please delete this thread :-) Here we...

    Hi, I have had some major electrical issues with my car (159 , 2010). The car would suddenly stop, got selevral warning messages on the dah; hill holder/abs/vehicle protection system not available... Then it would take several attemts to start it (it would not turn over at all.) The garage said...

    Hi - may be a bit of a long shot - I want to replace the fasteners which hold the headlight unit in place on the innermost side (see photo) for stainless ones as they are rusted badly. I am guessing they are M6 x 16mm (as I needed a 10mm socket to remove them - thread seems to be either 5 or...

    Hi all, I took my front bumper off (or at least attemted) my 147 and found the wing support brackets crumbling on my 2005 147. Anyone know where I can get replacements and a rough idea of price? Can the existing ones be repaired etc? thanks as always :-) Jason.

    Finally tracked down small gearbox oil leak. One of the core plugs on the end of the box has rusted through!! Maybe water can hang in the core plug as the inner arch guard is so close, just toughing in fact. Hopefully wont be too tricky to get out, for now just siloconed up while i sort out a...
  7. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Thanks to 1999gtv I've got some wheels for the winter. While I was swapping them over today, I noticed the rear top bumpstop is hanging off and half rusted away. Is this a replaceable part.....or will it need some fabrication?
  8. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    The black plastic/rubber trim on the outside of the doors on my 98 156 sedan have bubbled up with rust. Looks really shabby. I have been lookiing on Fiat Eper to find the part numbers but can't find them. Does anyone know the number? Is this something I will have to buy from a dealer? Cheers Bill
  9. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    On both my 156's the brace or strut that supports the back ends of the bumper is rusted beyond repair. No doubt due to the salting of roads here in the winter. I might as well just cut them off all together as they are just hanging there doing abs nothing. Does anyone know if these part are...
  10. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Okay I've got a 156 and I believe the clutch has rusted to the flywheel. I have opened the inspection covers on the bellhousing, and I can see movement when the clutch is pressed, so I believe my diagnoisis is correct, but I am open to suggestions. So I've tried starting in 1st\reverse and...

  15. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Latest lesson learned. Although the legs that support the Bumper/Wing and Undertray on the 156 look identical to the 147 - they are not! I sourced some reasonably clean 147 legs from a breaker's yard. I compared them - looked the same (I didn't measure them!). Spend a couple of hours cleaning...

    I have a 2008 159 TI Sportwagon and it is suffering from rust and corrosion on the Engine Subframe to the point it will not pass a roadworthy test in New Zealand. Has anyone else had any issues with corrosion? We only found it when the undertray was removed to change the cambelt. The car has...
