I'm not aware of any repair kits available. They certainly aren't listed in the parts catalogue. Anyway, it's the internal gear teeth that actually wear and these aren't repairable as they are part of the variator body itself. The only thing you could possibly repair is an oil leak by replacing the internal 'o' ring. If the variator is rattling then unfortunately the only cure is to replace your current one with a complete new unit.

I've read elsewhere about variator repair kits - comprising a fresh spring and plastic o-ring.

I had to order some parts for the 166 yesterday and saw, on the Alfa Workshop website, an article on stripping the variator and fitting the kit:

https://www.alfaworkshop.co.uk/alfa_fitting...elief_kit.shtml

At 9.00 the kit is way cheaper than replacing the whole variator - so I bought one:

As I've already got a new variator for the 145 I'll fit it first then try fitting the repair kit to the old variator... and keep it behind my ear for later...

Has anyone tried this?

Not tried it but I've heard from someone who has installed a few that they're not very good and don't last very long. He said that perhaps one worked on a motor. Was thinking of doing it myself but thought might as well buy a replacement if I'm taking the camshaft off and then timing the belts. Good luck with it though. Hope it works.

Yeah- I hope it works too- that's amazing: I had never read of a fix for it...

'Could' be sensational, but as Ganz says...

P.S.- you win this years' thread-resurrection prize hands down, Jeremy!! July 2008 > January 2019 !!!

Having dismantled my old variator, it looks like I have the old type (as per the first post in this thread) - whilst the repair kit is for the later type (as per GialloEvo's post).

If anyone wants the repair kit, let me know!
