    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I refilled the ac gas in my Alfa Romeo 156 last weekend, and noticed the valve caps were missing, don't know whether it misplaced after refilling. Does anybody have an idea from where to get them? There's no nearby scrapyard. Any recommended link from where I could get them?

    Alfa 145 & 146
    hi guys Im busy fixing up my 145 2.0L ts 96 year model. The previous owner said they turned on the adjusting screw with a Philips head. Is there any way you can tune it on your own without having to go to a garage as this valve helps with fuel consumption. Any help will be much appreciated...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    My "rescued" 156SW oilcaholic has had a problem with the aircon since I got it. After an all-too-warm summer I've started replacing bits as they became available - new condenser rad at the front, new compressor etc ... Now, the compressor says I should also replace the expansion valve - which...

    I'm going to take my EGR valve and pipe of this weekend, and wondering if anyone else had done it - pointers, tips etc. It's a 2011 Giulietta 1.6 jdtm-2. I've attached a photo. Am I right in thinking that the bolts visible are the ones that need removing + the hidden ones underneath on the...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    My side skirts have come adrift and I have bought some sikaflex to glue them. I was told to use duck tape to hold them in place whilst the glue set, but as they are slightly warped this does not do the job. Your sugeations would be appreciated

  16. GT JTS - idle control valve P0505

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    So this fault code appeared yesterday, cleared the fault via MES, havent appeared again as of yet. I am led to believe there isnt such valve on the newer fly-by-wire types of throttle control. The valve is part of the throttle body here (?). So the only option for me is to try to carb cleaner...

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi, Are there any videos or links anyone can share with me as to how I can clean the egr valve? Engine management light has come on and been quoted 229 to replace. Found some egr valve cleaning fluid in Halfords for 7 quid which seems to be worth a shot. Instructions state to remove air...
