    So I noticed my V6 wasn't running on all cylinders whilst driving earlier, so I stop and had a look on to discover that cylinder number 1's cable had come loose as the plastic end which plugs in by the fuel rail had broken. I should be able to cable tie it to keep it together, but I'm needing a...

    On a V6 trying to remove the front flexi exhaust pipe, I've snapped one of the studs between manifold and exhaust when trying to remove nut. Whats the best way of going about this without taking the manifold off, drill out remaining stud and replace with a bolt?

    My timing belt snapped at 82k miles on my 03 plate 147 1.6. The RAC man says that even if I bought the cam and crank locking tools and replaced the head, the engine probably still wont start. Has anyone had any experience of this? Was only travelling at about 12mph coming off a roundabout into...

    Guys someone's knocked my wing mirror off on my 147 Ducati Corse :furious: Been looking for a replacement on ebay - has the wing mirror changed between different models of the 147? Also they're kind of brushed silver - was this specific to the DC or would a standard silver 147 wing mirror be...

    Hi all. Second question of the day, The cable that attaches to the handle on my passenger seat has snapped, meaning I can't move the seat forward to allow people to get in the back of the car. I've phoned a few garages regarding this but nobody wants to take on the job. Don't blame them...

    RE: Turbo snapped in half +/- engine problems Dear Alfa Lovers, I bought a 57 Alfa 159 2.4 Lusso last year and up to now I have been extremely unlucky with this car. I had a full list of problems including failure of ABS pump shortly after I bought it, power steering failure, cold start...

    After discovering that the noise I thought was the sound of a rear spring snapping was exactly that, I'm wondering if it's worth just putting standard springs on or opting for a bit of a drop. The car in question is a 3.2 Q4 SV and it's already due to go in for paint work and wheel refurbs so...

    Sadly after only around 25k since last belt was replaced, mine has snapped at low speed. don't know what damage has done but been told 800-1500 to replace / rebuild it. thought about a recon engine or head but don't have the skills so I am selling the car. I'd be gutted to scrap it so I'm open...
