    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...
  2. Split Exhaust Flange

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    On my 156 V6 2.5 the exhaust flange on the catalyst is quite corroded.

Do anyone know a place in Europe...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi everyone. Apologies in advance for this long winded post. OK so my GT has had the dreaded MCSF error for a while and I've been trying to find the fault.

    The front offside bottom arm rear bush on my 2.2s Brera has split. After initially thinking the judder and wobble it caused could have been driveshaft related - I've seen this has been an issue on some Breras - I've been told it is the split bush - I've seen the split after having it pointed out...

    Hi I've got a 147 with a split upper turbo hose. The hose is the one that runs from the bottom right handside of the engine bay, up around the back of the battery and into the engine.

    Evening all, Im trying to replace my front discs - Ive got the old discs and hubs off but those flat head screws arent moving at all and the hub and disc seem pretty well stuck together. My various manuals describe the job as it should be super simple, but alas.... Is my only option to drill...
  16. Will split inlet flexihose cause loss of power?

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    The inlet flexi hose between the MAF and inlet plenum on my V6 Spider has split at the corrugated bit. The car is now down on power and struggles to pick up revs. Is it likely that the split in the hose is thinning out the mixture and confusing th ecu. Weirdly the check engine light isn't on...

  19. MOT Failure - Outer CV Joint Gaiter Split

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Heh Alfs, I thought members might benefit from my experience when my local garage failed my 156 2.4 JTD on a number of issues, relatively minor. Of more concern was the prospect of having to do the offside outer CV joint gaiter, which although straightforward is more involved. Anyhow, I...
