  1. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Dear Club Members If you have the time and the inclination I am seeking advice on an Alfa GT. I am totally smitten and hope to purchase one soon. In particular I am looking for a 170BHP Cloverleaf. If it has a LSD so much the better. The one I am eyeing at the moment is...
  2. The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Hi all I write Buying Guides for the UK classic car magazines, and have been asked to compile one on Spiders SI-IV, so quite a few detail changes to cover! For the photos, the magazine wants to use just one Duetto - volunteers please step forward, see below! - but for the article I need to talk...
  3. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Good evening. I need to replace the front lower track control arm on my 159 sportwagon because the ball joint is worn. Looking at the procedure in the workshop manual, it advises removing the brake caliper, disk, hub, drive shaft etc. before the lower wishbone can be removed. My 159 (939) is...
  4. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Since I acquired my spider I have noticed a drip of oil when parked up. Not got any worse, except the stain is growing on the drive, but I finally got a chance to get under and have a look. There is a small pully with a toothed belt on it near to the oil filter and its shown on the photo...
  5. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hi all :) Bit of a Sunday discussion. I am wondering which models included in this forum category people think will become the sought after rarer cars as they age? :) I would have to say that I think the 3.2 Brera's will probably go up in value as they become rarer in the future as they will...
  6. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Whilst changing the gear change "top hat" bushes on my 147 following the excellent step by step advice on this site, I popped the selector back into its housing but now if only turns a little bit and cannot be pulled straight back out which is could when I removed it. I can bolt the selector...
  7. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    I hadn't been driving my Abarth for a while and jumped into it the weekend. As much fun as it is, I've decided to part with it as it's such a mad terrier of a car, it's not much fun when driving at 7 tenths. I must have suddenly aged. So, as my alfetta is also going, it seems logical to buy...
  8. Alfa 164 & 166
    Are the pop-up headlamp washers identical on 164 facelift and the early models?
  9. The Classic Alfa Romeos

  10. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi, GT wouldn't start last weekend so got a jump from Green Flag. The guy asked me to put my driver's window down - wouldn't come back up. Managed to get a garage in Hull to put the window back up. They thought the motor was possibly on its way out so left it disconnected. I'm up at my...
  11. Alfa MiTo
    Dear all, Be gentle……its my first time post for a while but I'm considering returning to Alfa following a 5 year break and could use some advice? I had a couple of gorgeous 147 Lusso's from 2004-2009 and loved them both, but I was offered a place on a subsidised lease scheme in 2009 via my...
  12. Alfa GTA
    My local garage has just informed me that the air con pipes conencting the condensor have numerous holes which explains why I have no air con :D I have been quoted £199 for the long pipe and £89 for the short one, along with £335 for the radiator ( this may need replacing if it gets damaged if...

  15. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    AR only supply the gaiter c/w the driveshaft for many £s. (It's an MOT Fail.) Does anyone have a good one for sale on its own or know another type which matches? Thanks.
  16. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Ironically, on my way to the inspection this morning, the bottom rear left spring seat gave way, causing it to rub on the tyre. I didn't know exactly what had happened at the time, so just crossed my fingers. Amazingly I passed! But, on the way home I started to get smoke and that nasty burning...

  18. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    chaps, my 156 has developed a stiff spot on the steering, at first it seemed a little loose at full lock now its stiff and when you turn away from full lock, while its not difficult there is clearly some stiffness. local garage advise might be steering rack...really ? is that likely ? or a...
  19. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    So I've been looking at 916 Spiders for sale for the past year. Just recently a 3.2V6 has come up for sale with low miles (<40k) and only two owners from new. Took it for a run recently and all seemed well. The only noticeable issue was a slow moving temp gauge suggesting a possible thermostat...
  20. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi All - still getting bits together for rear suspension overhaul. I was looking down the lines of part power flex and part rose joints (Alfa workshop) but my quest for cheaper alternatives to the expensive rose joints has hit a wall - there are two types used, one I can find good quality for...
