Hi All,

I am in need of an inner CV joint for a 3.2 GT. Can anyone please advise on a supplier? A month or so ago I am sure I found a coule of places with them in stock but now I can't find anything at all??!!

Thanks,

A quick ebay search for me brought up a "genuine" part, albeit from Australia:

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1x-New-Genuine-GSP-Inner-CV-Joint-for-ALFA-ROMEO-GT-V6-3-2L-M-T-A-T-/151433904307?hash=item23422a00b3:g:b0oAAOxyZzlTc2pT

And a couple of aftermarket parts, no idea on the quality:

and

I think your other option is to buy a whole new drive shaft with the CV joint already fitted:

Another thing to bare in mind whilst you're searching for parts. I think, but don't quote me on this... That the CV joints and driveshafts for the GT 3.2 / 147 GTA / 156 GTA and maybe even 3.2 GTV will all be exactly the same part, as these are all CF3 engines. Some manufacturers often don't list them under the name you're searching so try them all.

Best of luck!

Inner joints are the same as other models and easily found. It's the outer joints that are difficult to source. i.e. unique to the 156GTA / 147GTA / 3.2GT.

Basically, the GTA drive shaft is the same as the 2.5 V6 shaft apart from the splined bit that goes into the hub.

The OD of the splines are 29.5mm on a GTA shaft and 27.1 on a V6. So you can use an inner joint off a v6 (CF2 or CF3, they're the same) to repair a GTA shaft but the outer joint is unique to the 147/156 GTA and the 3.2 GT.

The 3.0 166 shaft uses the same 29.1mm shaft but the bit between the shaft and the boot is longer, you cant use the outer joint off a 166 shaft either.

Alfa have never offered them for sale as separate items, only as part of the inner shaft.

I've got a good used one off a 2.5 you could have for £100 if required, it is only 18 months old and done only a couple of thousand miles.

Many thanks for reply, however I already found one in store bit closer than UK, so I am ordering that one.
