Re: Long time road going 164 Q4 1994 project

Great news :!: :) Keep us posted about the progress on other items too, I'm interested to see if the springs you found will lower the car slightly. I actually think 1-2cm lower would suit it very well and would look into that myself. I don't expect it to be lowered and that is not the intention eit...

Re: 164 Q4 ABS problem (warning light on)

Yes, the location of it does not look very integrated. Another small test run this weekend was fine, no ABS light coming on unexpected - and putting in some fuel made the car run smoother again :) It was on display at the 'open garage' as well, together with another project - not mine! 20180930_1509...

Re: 24v HVAC button removal

Since you have taken it apart, I guess you have seen the tap at the bottom, but it is still connected at the top. I don't recall what I did to remove them, so not much help here, but I did have to disassemble the entire unit.

Re: Long time road going 164 Q4 1994 project

So replacing the 60A fuse that Alfawhiz found to fix his ABS issue, the ABS light in my car does not come on either when driving the car - I hope this is a more permanent fix :!:

Spettacolo Nordico - 15 - 16 September 2018 in Sweden

For the first time ever, the Danish, Norwegian & Swedish Alfa Romeo clubs are having a shared event in the north, at Ring Knutstorp in the south in Sweden.

The connector itself is this type and can be replaced.

The box it connects to, is the Throttle Position Sensor (TPS).

Re: Oil change on the rear axle.

I have not had this issue, so cannot comment directly on it. From what I recall reading about the Viscomatic, some of the oil compartments are closed, so not possible to change oil. If you have replaced the fluids where possible, this might be the last option. Without having heard the sound and beha...

From what I can see it is similar to this:

It also looks like a control unit for the windows, compared to the ones I have seen in my 164 and Thema.

Where have you found the parts for this at these prices?

My best suggestion is ebay and I think sachs are the most common ones, I have found at least.

Re: Viscomatic/hydraulic group

No it didn´t solve the problem. It´s too difficult to try to solve the problem without tester error codes. Last summer I went to the workshop to read the fault codes and it cost me 75 euros. Too expensive... The fault codes were from the pressure sensor and steering angle sensor. So you may have so...

Re: Bleeding the 164 Q4 power steering system

I assume that you have checked the level again? :wink:

If you believe that the system has no more air in it, my guess is that something is obstructing the flow - if you haven't done anything to the steering pipe mentioned, maybe that needs to be flushed...?

I don't know the price for each exact part, but was told up to 200 euro per piece, depending on the work needed. The total means that it was a little bit less per piece.
