    A few days ago my 1.6 cut out, EML came on and as I had my ODB cable in the car, I checked the fault. It was P0335 CPS circuit malfunction.

    There are four of these ball bearings, one at each end of each shaft. They have seals on one side only, the other side being open exposing the race. My question is, which way round do you think the ones at the drivebelt ends should face? Balls in or balls out? ... if you'll pardon the...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    This weekend I have had to replace the offside lower suspension arm due to the ball joint failing the MOT. I did the nearside one a couple of years ago without issue.
