Mail Order Customers:
Our carrier DHL is operating near normally across the world. Allow an extra day for delivery (2 days for Australia, 6 days for New Zealand), just in case. However, regular international postal services can have additional delays, and are not recommended for anything required within 6 weeks.
  * 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 beginning to see supply delays from factory lockdowns around the world.
Workshop Customers:
Following government guidance, we are open as usual. Taking your vehicle to a garage for repairs is a permitted activity (safety) as long as you observe the social distancing rules. 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.
  * MOTs due for renewal from 30th March to 31st July will be extended for six months. However, you are still legally obliged to keep your vehicle in a safe and roadworthy condition, so if you need to use your car in this period, it is still strongly recommended to get one done.

Replacing the pollen filter on an Alfa Romeo 156, 147 or GT

Guide to fitting a pollen filter in a GT, 147 or late 156


Remove the insulation from under the passenger side of the dash.


Looking upwards towards the centre console there are three bolts securing a small access panel against the bulkhead, they are quite difficult to find, undo these.


Remove pollen filter, if this is original it will be a one piece filter and will need to be removed by force.


The two piece filter replaces the original filter, now the filters only go one way round and there is a flap in the centre that has to interlock to provide an air tight seal. So slide one in with the flap to the outside of the car and then push it towards the centre of the car, then slide the other pollen filter up making sure the flap is in the correct place and refit the lower panel.
