Yeah, my timing is good. A year ago FCA would have told me to get bent and then charged me storage fees I suspect.

A bit of ACCC scrutiny is welcomed!!

Straight from the ACCC, I admit to not having seen these earlier:

https://www.accc.gov.au/media-release/dealers-squeezed-by-car-manufacturers-at-consumersí-expense

Nothing new really, other than official descriptions of what was evidently going on. The right of third party access to technical information that enables safe, warranty compliant repair and maintenance has long been an EU policy but even manufacturers bound by these rules within Europe have sought to tilt the system in their favour here.

There is a metal bracket for the heat exchanger piping to the oil filter housing. This must sit over the plastic manifold mount where they both sit on a stud and are secured with a 13mm nut.

If you have it the other way around, the plastic manifold will not sit flush against the sealing surface on the head. It will appear flush, but it will never seal properly due to the slight angle.

Cheers.

Mick.

Buy/Swap/Sell [Announce ONLY] / For sale: 2011 Alfa Romeo Giulietta QV - Melbourne
« Last post by peter.b on September 19, 2017, 08:32:49 PM »
Hi all,

It is unfortunately time to part with my beloved Giulietta QV. As a proud Alfa Romeo Ownerís Club Member make no mistake; this hurts a great deal. However, there comes a time oneís life when one must act responsibly, and part with what they love most for the greater good. Donít despair though Ė itís not all bad news! You too may be able to be as smitten with this car as I am.
 
Iíve owned this car now for just over a year, and I believe there was one owner before me. In this time, the QV has been an incredibly fun and dependable machine and it will be missed. The turbo response is addictive, and well, itís red.
 
It features (among many things) a perky and willing 1750cc turbocharged 4 cylinder engine, Brembo calipers on the front for some spirited braking performances, pretty stunning looks and the all important USB and Bluetooth connectivity. I think it's in pretty great condition too.

In my time, Iíve had it serviced at renowned Alfa Romeo specialists Mauceri Motors and the timing belt was completed in 2015 by Zagame in Richmond, which according to the service manual means that it doesnít have to be done again until 2019. Furthermore, registration has just been paid so youíll enjoy a full 12 months of carefree, fun, Italian motoring.
 
My QV will be sold with a RWC to the lucky person who gets to own it. Asking $12,900.

Donít miss out on a great deal for a great, great car. More pics on Carsales: https://www.carsales.com.au/private/details/Alfa-Romeo-Giulietta-2011/SSE-AD-4990007

No, it's persistence. I believe it's a power that can be used for good.  :)

Society now demeans such; we dismiss the informed and determined, mock our artistic footsoldiers, disdain the courteous or considerate.

Haakon, you will be amused to know one of the trusty Frogmobiles today busted its window reg clip. I've had a few of these go on French cars, not one on an Alfa.

Hoping FCA will throw in a bike rack for the Giulietta roof, then your Mrs can fetch you whenever you get a flat...

Yep, and scientific and educated types are also derided. Its a very depressing side effect of the whole neocon fuckstickery that seems to reward ignorance and selfishness.

Ah yes, the good old french window regulators... I am a super expert at changing Megane regulators  ::)

Ever since I converted the roadie to tubeless tyres, I've not had a flat in 5000kms and two sets of tyres  ;)
