  1. Giulietta jacking points and using jack stands?

    Alfa Giulietta
    So after hours of googling and reading I'm not much closer to an satisfying answer regarding this. Obviously there's the jacking points on the pinch welded sills like on every car, which I would use for changing the tires if it wasn't for 1. I don't have the dangerous emergency scissor jack...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Right I know its been asked many times before but I cannot seem to find a straight answer, where is the best place to put axle stands on a 159. I have been told the jacking point , but that obviously throws up a problem when applying the second stand. I need the front of the car on stands ...

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Okay . . . so I need to change the brakes on my GTV, so I need to jack it up and put it on Jack stands. I can't get a trolly jack under it because of the Autodelta kit thats on it, and the fact its lowered. So a few questions: If I can get the car up using the normal jacking points and the...

    Hello all, To anyone who's jacked their MiTo up with a trolley jack and then rested it on axle stands, could you help me with where to place them under the car?

  9. Where to put axle stands - 159

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Sorry for asking such a basic question but I don't really want to get it wrong. I have a 56 plate 159 and need to take the rear wheels off to have a look at the brakes because they are sticking. I have a trolley jack and want to put it on axle stands while I work on the brakes. The manual says...
  10. Is this a good place to put the stands?

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Iiiivnin' all, Complete novice at doing anything to my car myself other than driving and detailing it. To make a change from the norm I will attempt to paint the brake calipers bright red, which have turned pink to a bright red. My question is this: Is this an appropriate place to put the stands?

    Taking my wheels for refurb and doing some undersealing work prior to bringing car back on road in April so need to leave it on stands for a week but not sure on best place to put them.

    Hi all, My new transverse arms arrived from EB Spares today and I am planning on fitting them this weekend. woohoo.. It will be nice to have rear wheels that don't steer themselves willy nilly.. :lol: Anyway, I have a feeling that I may have to drop the rear sub frame so that the arm bolts...
  13. When Alfa Motorshow stands were actually interesting.

    General Alfa Discussion
    Was browsing through Youtube and came across a clip that i found a few years back. I guess this was some sort of marketing ploy used by Alfa to gain much attraction a few years back in Russia. On some levels the use of these females may lower Alfa's values and reputation of style, as it is quite...

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I'm about to start a minor restoration on my Gtv ready for the summer or early next spring. Whats the best way to jack and have the car on axle stands. (Where would I use the trolley jack at the front of the car to jack the front up and then the best place at the back to jack up the car)? Any...
  15. Where to place axle stands on Brera

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I am going to swap wheels from back to front and was wondering where to place the axle stands while I'm doing it. I will be using a trolley jack rather than the scissor jack, which I assume should be placed in the same jacking locations as the scissor jack.

  17. Jacking points & axle stands - S3 Spider

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Looking at doing some work so was going to put the S3 up on axle stands. Now as I see it, the car jacking points are where I'd put the jack obviously, so where would i then put the stands? Also, if I jack elsewhere, the stand tops look like they would crush the jacking points when the car...

  20. Axle stands

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Believe it or not, i've been searching for about 10 mins on this but wasn't confident with the answers around the web. From what i've read the 147's axle points on the front & rear are those bits with the holes in them, just in front of the seal, right? If so, i don't see how the axle stands...
