Hi Janet, I don't know anything about 145's so it's just a wild guess but there aren't 2 types of belt are there? (To take into account some 145's having a/c and some not)

Hope you get it sorted, no-one deserves a poorly Alfa :(


Sorry, where ar emy manners? Welcome to AO ;-)

Ode is probably right, did the supplier check your chassis number when ordering?

Welcome :D

From memory and looking at the piccy...it's a while since I did this, the tensioner looks like it should go anti-clockwise.
