Our carrier DHL is operating near normally across the world with its Air Express service. Allow an extra day for delivery (4 days for Australia and New Zealand), just in case.
  * For the UK only, Royal Mail are delivering the vast majority of orders on time according to our data, but is experiencing higher levels of staff absences, so there may some local delays.
  * We will be working normally and have a large warehouse full of parts that will help keep your car on the road. However, we are seeing some supply delays from factory lockdowns around the world.
Workshop Customers:
  *
We have strict social distancing processes internally and disinfect daily (not least because we have staff in vulnerable groups). In the circumstances, we have had to close our waiting room. Our mechanics wear gloves at all times and we will disinfect your vehicle with our Zaflora sprays on handing back to you. We would respectfully ask you to show our staff the same courtesy. We also have full amount contactless payment systems.
  * In these times of fluctuating demand, it's highly advisable to book your vehicle in earlier than usual. We are currently very busy indeed.

Checking The Wiper Blades And Washer Jets On Your Alfa.

The 147 and 159 wiper motor linkages are prone for having weak arms on the right hand (drivers) side, they break on the 147 and the 159 wears out. Giulietta and MiTo rear wiper motors play up or stop working because the wires in the tail gate break.

Check the windscreen washer jets for direction and effectiveness. If they're low on pressure check them for dirt, if they are clean then check for a leak along the feed pipe and if the pump is working properly.

Examine the front wiper blades for contact with the screen, splits and general wear. If there's bad contact then check the wiper arms are securely connected to the wiper motor linkage.
