Re: Steering rack bush

Hi Alfan ,part no 5 i think. The pentagon picture i put up is costing 40plus pounds equivalent in local currency. All alfa parts here seem to be overly priced as they are rare . I hear that many 164 owners modify this? as the bush (gaiter?) is very hard to find. The Q4 variant doesn't have this prob...

Re: Faulty Windshield washer pump

Yes its RHD. I have checked the fuses thoroughly they seem OK...
Probably will probe the pump itself to look for damage.
