Hi,

Like many of you, my opinion of my Alfa dealer service department is somewhere below that of my own abilities in the shop. I also live 1hr min from that service department. I would like to avoid the hose clamp rubbing on the brake line issue, and I'm thinking I can easily do that on my own. Has anyone actually performed the fix?

Thanks!
Jonathan

yes you can. Avoid the dealer. It's not a big deal. They just happened to do mine while I was in there making them do a bunch of software crap. It took them like 3 min.

If your brake line is rubbed this is a fairly major amount of work that may require a Witech, including flushing and bleeding the brake system. If you just need the bracket installed I think it is straightforward.

The replacement brake lines were on allocation when I had my car done, so you may not be able to buy it.

I looked at mine. The buckle on the clamp was about .250" to .375" (inches) away from the brake tube. There were no marks on the tube. So, just to be sure, and to improve my odds, I pressed, using my thumb, on the brake tube and bent it just a bit. It is now about .500" away from the buckle on the clamp. This was about 1000 miles ago. Still no rubbing, no problems.
