    Hello all I was servicing/ fixing my lock and I'd taken off the door card of my 3 door. I had dropped something inside the metal part of the door behind the soundproofing white sheet. When feeling around for it I found a spring in the bottom. It finally snapped in my hand ('lucky' as I don't...

    Went to change one of my headlight bulbs the other day and found it was held in with a hair grip checked the other side and found it was held in with a cable tie! Neither bulbs were seated correctly and it does rather explain the dodgy dipped beam i was experiencing. The previous owner must have...

    I know I'm opening a can of worms but I'm really trying to figure out what would spring rates would be the best for track dedicated Alfa Romeo 156 2.0 Twin Spark. So it's only about performance on a race track. I've checked Twin Spark cup (racing cup for TS alfas in Vic and NSW states in...

    Hi, well I guess it happens to us all...I just can not live with my current spring set (H&R), too low... I hope someone has an original set they would like to see used vs sitting there perhaps removed previously etc, fingers crossed!!! Best regards. Paul.

    So after getting in from work yesterday to a large package sitting at my front door (Replacement bumper, slam panel, and off side light) I manhandled it into the house and went to put a coffee on....no milk. So jumped in the car and drove round to the shop to pick up milk, on the way back a loud...

    Hi So I’ve removed a spring pan to de-rust and apply rust proofing and see that there are 2 holes in the underside with rust inside. Do you have any tips on removing rust from the inside cavities? Thanks Ian

    I’ve had a quotation from a garage for around £300 for some coil springs on my Alfa due to them being ‘special’ and being a dynamic type spring due to my multiple driving modes in my car. They also stated that they have to order in a pair, there fore I have to pay for both, just posting to get...

    My Grandson pushed the Driver side (Right) door mirror the wrong way. This has caused the mirror to be floppy. I am aware that there is a simple solution to repairing the mirror as the spring has become detached. About 4 years ago I watched a video on how to reattach the spring. I can not find...

    In the absence of later version of brake compensators, I'm considering retro fitting an early spring load brake compensator. I need information with regards to the spring and where it attaches to. I've looked at the GTV manual and the diagram shows the spring going straight into the subframe, is...

    Bit of a puzzler. I had a problem with the window adjustments and some of the teeth had burred over, I've managed to file them & it all works ok...But the big flat clock type spring not only pops off but when the regulator is working the spindle that the spring locates into pushes itself...

    Can anyone identify these srpings by their colour coding. They’ve been in my shed for ages and I’m not sure which 156 they came off. It’s either a 2003 156 sw 1.9jtd turismo or a 2003 156 GTA. Fronts are green red blue. Rear are orange green. Cheers Joss

    Hi All, Considering the number of Alfa's I see on the roads, I suspect there may be more members of this forum than the number of posts would suggest. So, the question is, are there any proud owners who might be interested in meeting other like-minded souls (those who are not too busy...

    Hi I am new to the forum I have recently bought a 2.2 939 Spider thinking of lowering the set up. From what I’ve read from other owners the choice would be Eibach pro kit, however they don’t make them for 2.2 JTS anymore and I was wondering if anyone has any thoughts on using MAXTRAC lowering...

    Around 6 months ago I fitted KYB springs to the 147 - it's a 1.6 TS Collezione. The rear looks way too high now, the distance from the floor to the highest part of the wheel arch is 28.5" / 72.5CM The shocks I bought were from AutoDoc - here's the specs: KYB Coil Spring Rear Axle (x2) ARTICLE...
