I have a 147 and there seem to be many more 156 exterior door handles available second hand than 147 (as mine broke at the hinge, it seems fairly common). A new one costs £70 something exc VAT so I really want second hand.

So does anyone know if the 156 ones are the same as 147?

Cheers

No, they're different.

I guess the reason there's more 156 ones is that a lot of 147's are 3-door and not 5. Sorry feller.

err, the 156 only has 2 chrome door handles, same number as the 147 :p

The handles of a very different design, the 156 being a push button compared to the 147 pull-type handle. The 147 handle will go on a Bravo/Marea so maybe you could get some Marea handles and put them on the 147 - they'll be plastic though.

When he said it broke at the hinge, I assumed he meant the REAR handle :p

And anyway, the front handles aren't chrome, they are ALUMINIUM :rolleyes: :p

;)

this happened on mine.
I put in my car details on this site
http://www.247spares.co.uk/alfaromeo?DCSJumpGUID=FEWS3_DCS_Jump_df6d6186-89f6-47a3-a140-34a8e0d1372a&_$ja=tsid:936|ckid:FEWS3_DCS_Jump_df6d6186-89f6-47a3-a140-34a8e0d1372a

and within a couple of weeks i had an email saying they had found one. Think it cost me about £25 + postage.

Hope this helps
