  2. Front rattle at slow speed

    Spider - 105 & 115 Series (1966-1994)
    My '82 Spider has a rattle heard front left and felt a little through the steering when I am coming to a slow stop. I replaced all the tie rods, control arms and bushings last year. Had the alignment done, and nothing noticed then. I'm thinking it must be the steering gear or something...

  8. power steering rack and pump change

    164 & 168 (1991-1995)
    Hi, Have tried removing the power steering pump on my 24v 164 and it seems a maze of hard to get to bolts. Does anyone use any special tools for this or am I just being lame? Is there any residual pressure in the system to be wary of when undoing the pipes? What happens if power steering fluid...

    Alfa Romeo Parts For Sale & Wanted
    This is a 21 11/16" steering shaft for a GTV6. I bought it from a seller on eBay who claimed it was from an '82 like mine, but it is in fact exactly 1" too long. I think this spec was changed in '83 or '84? Regardless, I have no need for it. The splines and threads are excellent, and it comes...
