  1. Disadvantage of Brera undertray

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    A buyers guide for the Brera I saw yesterday suggested removing the undertray as it collects water and speeds up rust on the sub frame. What are your thoughts on this?
  2. Undertray bolts/screws

    Alfa 164 & 166
    I have a brand new undertray but no bolts or screws for my 2005 facelift twin spark Anyone know what I need to get and where? TIA
  3. Torx size for undertray removal

    Alfa Giulietta
    Quick question: Can anyone confirm the correct tools required for the undertray removal please? I'm hoping to do an oil and filter change at the weekend, and to save me scrabbling around under the car tonight (when I should be ferrying the kids round to their Thursday night swimming / scouts /...
  4. Definitive For & Against Undertray Removal

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Since we bought my wife's car 5 years ago and having read the horror stories of subframes turning to dust, I've agonised about whether to remove the undertray. One minute I'm on the verge to binning it as a number of forum members reckon it traps water and is the primary cause of subframe...

  6. Undertray screw's?

    Alfa MiTo
    Hi all, this morning I started driving to hear a constant scraping noise, turns out it's my undertray with only two screws left in, not sure if they weren't all put in last service or what but does anyone know the part number or a screw size I could use to replace them as I don't really want to...
  7. 156 SS undertray for sale

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Removed from my year 2000 2.5, stainless steel, it’s not brand new and due to the size it would need collecting from Liverpool. £60, hell of a lot cheaper than new :blabla:
  8. Undertray?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    There seems to be no right or wrong definitive answer but is it better to have the undertray fitted or not? I’ve just had my subframe treated and need to know is it better to leave it off or refit? Road noise is certainly more noticeable (which I could live with) If I spaced the undertray with 2...
  9. 159 undertray fixings

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I'm missing quite a lot of the fittings for my undertray. I think I read somewhere that M6 bolts (with a washer) can be used for some of the fittings, what about the other ones? I'm hoping to take the undertray off next week and waxoyl the subframe, so perfect time to replace all the fittings...
  10. Undertray - Yes or No?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    What is the general consensus on the undertray - is it best with or without? Easier to work on without but in itself not a good enough reason to remove it - Any real life affect on economy?
  11. Alfa Giulietta TB MULTIAIR SPRINT - Undertray Different?

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi all! Just wondering if someone could help advise me on the undertray/engine heat shield under the engine on Giuliettas. I'm looking at purchasing a 2nd hand Giulietta and I've been looking at and most I've seen have the following undertray with the metal part and the holes...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all, can anyone tell me if this undertray is correct for my 1.9 JTD GT? or is it this type...

    Hi All Well I have looked and looked but obviously not in the right places! Can anyone help with a link to anyone currently selling aluminium FULL undertrays for 916 GTV/Spiders. I know all about Luffmans doing the part under trays ;) It is the FULL tray that I am after As always any help...
  14. 159 Undertray missing

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I have my 159 SW TI now a month and I am very happy with it although it is not always suited for the smaller Irish country lanes: I have hit the road a couple of times which sends a very scary loud bang through the car frightening the family :nervous:. I checked under the car and noted that the...
  15. GTV 3.2 Undertray?

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Bit of a basic question - but does the 3.2 V6 have an undertray? As far as I can ascertain, the 3.0 V6 and Twin Spark have one.....but I am struggling to find a definitive answer on the 3.2 V6. Any clarification would be welcome!
  16. Good old undertray dilemma!!

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Just been having a look around (as you do) and found the back end of my undertray had dropped down, tray has pulled through the screw heads - most probably after the last service? I know they are M6 rivnuts but is the O/D on these things the same for all? I can get hold of the rivnuts simply at...
  17. 159 2.2 undertray

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Am thinking of sourcing an under engine/sump tray for my 2.2 JTS. Does anyone know if these are standard one size fits all for 2.2, 2.4, petrol, diesel or are they different specs for different types? Reason I'm asking as I will get one from scrapper and if they are a standard size then my...
  18. GT undertray

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    My daughters GT arrived home this evening dragging its under tray along the road. She has no doubt hit a speed hump too fast one time too many. I got it jacked high,drilled a couple of new holes in it and secured it tomthenArcher again with three heavy duty cable ties. It is broken at the...
  19. GTA Undertray

    Alfa GTA
    Evening people. Given that there are plenty of bits beneath the V6 lump including the subframe which do not like the wet, salty roads up North I'm going to grab a new undertray. Question is, which one. The genuine one looks like it covers more of the underneath but it's plastic, whereas the...
  20. Alfa 159 Ti 1750 - Undertray

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Morning all! Joined up a while back, and have been a 159 1750 TBi owner for almost 5 years - though in those years (and maybe, and overly excessive speed bump yesterday morning!), I now find myself with an obliterated undertray, that's flapping around as I drive about (it's currently held...
