    Alfa Giulietta
    I bought my Giulietta QV last year August, its a 2014 model and I love it but as you do at some point I have had to change the tyres and to my surprise the TPM sensors are missing. I duly rang the dealer I bought if from and was basically told tough and I would have to pay for them to be...
  4. Air Con Service Advice Please?

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi, I have two '99 GTV P2 Lussos, a 3.0 V6 and a 2.0 TS. The 3.0 has done 51k and the 2.0 has done 24k. Both air con systems do not work. From experience, will a standard re-gas work, or are there some parts I'll typically need to replace? I'm guessing standard parts would be all the O...

  10. (Most of) Service Completed!

    Alfa Giulietta
    Obviously a glutton for punishment today, having rebuilt my door to replace the faulty lock I got started on the service. Fuel filter was nice and easy and the pollen filter was done a few weeks ago. Got the car up on a jack, with an axle stand under the suspension arm and got the wheel off...

    Alfa Giulietta
    I'm looking to buy a Giulietta 1.4 MultiAir 170 and I have been to see one which is a TCT on a 14 plate. Looking at the service history I became concerned when there was a gap between services of just under 2 years and 27,000 miles. It's on 56k now. Apparently, the oil was changed about 1500...

    Where does everyone get there 'in motorplan' service and repair work done these days?
