    Hi, My Alfa 159 has just failed the MOT due to the front subframe having no resistance to a screwdriver attack. Could anyone please let me know what subframes are compatible with a ALFA ROMEO 159 JTDM LUSSO JTDM LUSSO ESTATE 2387cc (2006) DIESEL as there are loads of spider subframes on ebay but...
  3. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi -- just wondering if the fiat Coupe subframe are identical to the ones used in the 916 GTVs/Spiders Also, what else (if anything) would you nab from the Coupe if you had the chance? My alfa is a TS Spider. Cheers ?
  4. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I only have two subframe bolts to undo to release the subframe on my 156 TS. Will I also have to undo a ball joint to swing the suspension away on the O/S in order to lower the engine and gearbox?
  5. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I couldn't find a "how to" for removal of 156 TS engine and gearbox on sub-frame. To lighten the load I removed the cylinder-head and pistons and might even remove crank for the same purpose. Is there anyway to do this without disturbing the steering rack? Is anyone able to provide a...

    i will sell a 164 rear axle subframe support. i bought it in good condition 2 years ago, then sand blasted and hot zinc dipped. 280eur plus shipment. located in germany, so shipment to overseas might be too expensive. (my 164 is dead, timing belt):bigmouth: greets, hans
  7. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    On facebook Alfa book selling page today there is a used good front subframe for £100 and a set of new old style red Eibach springs for a Tbi saloon also for £100. I have no connection with either of the sellers but remember someone asking about springs recently.
  8. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    After scrabbling around under my 159 last weekend and seeing the condition of the front subframe I've decided that my initial plan to wire brush, Kurust and Hammerite it isn't going to be enough to save or protect it. The radiator support brackets are as crumbly as oatcakes, the front crossbar...
  9. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Well finally I've managed to pick up a reasonably priced front subframe and rear suspension for rebuild. My plan is to get it all stripped down and blasted, repaint and rustproof it all and then swap them for the ones currently fitted. I'll detail the work as it progresses in my modifications...
  10. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    There are plates either side that support the front subframe that bolt to the floor of our '96 Spider. The bushes are buggered. Any ideas on how to find replacements?
  11. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    I've been told I have a hole in the n/s subframe, I meant to have a look this weekend but didn't get chance. How serious is this, can the hole be repaired or do i need to replace the subframe? I've just been suckered into paying 800 for a clutch & flywheel replacement so this is the last thing I...
  12. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I changed the oil on my 2004 GT 1.9 JTD yesterday. I was shocked to see how rusty the subframe has become, I'm sure it wasn't anywhere near that bad last year! I've spent a lot on the car over the last couple of years and it's still a nice looking thing that I enjoy driving. I'm reluctant to...
  13. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    So a while ago I posted about how my Brera subframe was starting to show rust and was in dire need of fixing before it would become too late. Today took it down to the guys at Autolusso who swapped my rusty subframe for a almost new looking refurbished one. We noted the lower front arm wishbone...
  14. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hello all, For some reason I have been unable to locate the search bar on the forum pages - am I missing something? Anywya, I wonder if anyone is able to suggest any mobile welders that may be able to assist with welding the rear-subframe of my Spider? The rear arm bush has failed and has...
  15. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Need to replace mine, a new one on its way, is there a format to follow? In my mind.. Wheels off Strip suspension, Caliper etc Unbolt Remove As above reversed Sound about right?? J
  16. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hi All, I'm sure you'll be completely unsurprised to hear that the front subframe has rotted away quite superbly on my '06 Brera 2.4 JTDm. As is luck, I've just been on to source the replacement part on Shop4Parts to find it's gone out of stock... Are there any alternative suppliers out there?
  17. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hello all, like a lot of people i'm having to replace the 'flower pot' part of the bumpstop. It's totally rusted through due to the water ingress from the subframe drainage hole. There are steel and stainless replacements, but shouldn't the solution be covering the drainage part of the...
  18. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi guys, Finally got my rear frame off after a bit of a faff. Does anyone know what dimensions the bolts are? On mine the front bolts are 19mm with a few washers and came off with no problems. The rears on the other hand were slightly smaller than 19mm with washers and the impact wrench just...
  19. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi all, can anyone link the guide to remove the rear subframe? Spent ages looking for it but can't find it. Thanks Simon
