    Hello, new to the forum and also have a new set of Ronal A1 15" for my Milano/ 75.

  5. Brake rotor bolt size

    Alfa Giulietta
    I need to change my brake pads and rotors, but can't remember what size the two bolts are that hold the rotor in place. I remember it being a 24mm size, but looking at the 24mm sockets it seems way too big. I know the brake pad caliper uses a hex bolt. I just need the size for the two bolts...
  6. Replace Split Fuel Hose - Size?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all, The fuel hose from the fuel filter to the engine has split on my GT and has resulted in diesel being squirted all over the filter and down on the exhaust (which was kind of a smoky experience). It seems to have worn through the braiding and the hose itself by rubbing on the fuel filter...

    Hi folks. Anyone know what the correct battery size for the 159 1759tbi is?! I've just had to swap out my battery as the last one was a dud, but the one provided by Halfords and recommended by their app is a terrible fit for the tray. It's far too short and it's a stretch to get the positive...

    Got an idea for a bit of an exhaust mod. To save me going out in the dark and lying under my car, does anybody know the main pipe size of the exhaust? That's the main pipe between the dpf and the rear silencer (there only the one on the 2.0). Inside and outside diameter would be useful. Thanks...
