Hi Mark, did you get any feedback on this? I have just purchased an OMP strut brace that is suppossed to fit my 1.9JTd but one of the reservoirs mounted to the aft bulkhead is in the way and I'm wondering if anyone else has found the same problem and if so, what they did to get around it.
When the upper brace went on my sportwagon, we found the filler for the power steering reservoir was covered; two options; either fit longer mounting bolts and spacers or live with the fact you need to undo the mounting nuts when you top up the fluid. You could try Alfastumper for some sexy options :alloy, carbon fibre etc( which might also solve this issue), or ultra racing do some very nice braces worth a look. I also have an unfitted lower front brace if that is of interest; yours at cost (£50 plus p+p)!
Just called UltraRacing but they don't supply for the GT. AlfaStumper is a bit expensive at £150 for the stainless strut and a 12 week lead time. I sent an email to StrutBracer.co.uk since they have no known telephone number (now I'm worried) and I've asked them to comment on the fitting issue and whether anyone else has highlighted this problem so I'll see if I get a response.
My 156 headlights were looking tired, so I bought a pair of genuine second hand GTA headlights that needed some UV treatment and polishing. I think it updates the front end nicely and feel better about not using aftermarket ones.
I noticed after nearly 20 years one of the headlight fixing bolts...
I’ve changed the clutch master on a 156 TS as the old one was leaking and I never had a consistent pedal. I had several secondhand ones that came from cars that all had good clutches before the parts were removed so I reasoned one of them at least must be working. I’ve fitted all of them and...
I've bought some new headlamps for the GT (magnetti marelli) and they both seem to have milky marks on the inside chrome casing, I haven't fitted them yet as in two minds if I send back or if they will disappear with the heat. Anyone had similar experience?
HI there i have a 147 1.9 JTD with the connect navi in it.
The maps i have are from 2004 with the firmware 26.16.
Can someone direct me to a working download for the 2010-2011 CD Europe, Benelux?
Or is it possible to use maps from 2017 RT3 ?
I am needing new front brake disks soon, and I was wondering if the 305mm 156 GTA disks would be a straight bolt on swap as the hub diameters are apparently the same size. Or does the installation run into problems elsewhere?
The other option is just any aftermarket uprated disks...
