COVID-19 Coronavirus Message Updated: 17th September
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.

A guide to how and where to top up your Alfa Romeo's screen wash


Alfa Romeo 156, 147 and GT

The washer bottle is inside the left hand front wing as you face the engine bay. It has a dark blue flip top approx 1 inch (20mm) in diameter, DONT confuse this with the header tank for the coolant which has a screw on top and is slightly larger.

Flip the top on the washer bottle put a funnel in the tank and top up with a 50/50 mix of screen wash and water. If you are sure your container is clean you can remove the filter in the top of the screen wash bottle and it will fill up more quickly.


On a MiTo the screen wash bottle is just behind the left hand headlamp (circled in the photo)


As it is on a Giulietta, again circled in red behind the headlamp
