So last week after 5 mins driving out of car park the transmission fault came up and the car die within 500 meter. It wouldn't go into gear and the pump wouldn't activate when i open the door.
Had the car towed back home and scan the code using Multiscan, and it seems P294D-18 is the main problem

After some research here and asking Alfaworks to confirm the problem, i was able to fix the problem by replacing the Voltage regulator.

It only took 4 days to get the parts from Alfaworks (amazingly quick as usual).
I just plug in the new unit to test if I could get it into gear, and as soon as I turn the key the on I could hear the pump started working again. If you are like me experiencing the same problem this could be the easiest way to narrow down the root cause.

Now i have to find a way to take the old unit off without removing the quarter panel or wheel well...

Can you let me know how you did it? It was impossible for me to place a ratchet
You know what - I can't remember how, but I do know that I "hurt" for 2 weeks due to contortion. Not recommended.

For my next trick, I'm replacing the intercooler.... o_O

I did mine a couple of weeks ago. It's a bit tricky to get to the two rear fastners but it can be done. I managed by cracking the fastners loose with a 10mm spanner then used a 1/4" drive deep socket and knuckle to unwind by hand.
I plan to keep another voltage regulator in the car as a spare as this seems to be a weak point that can leave you stranded at anytime.
