few problems with my '00 alfa 156 sport wagon
Hi, I have recently bought myself an Alfa 156 Sportwagon and it is an absolute beauty to drive apart from a couple of niggly things i have noticed
1. My sliding parcel shelf is broken and would like to know where I could get a replacement. I tried a breif search on the net but have had little joy, beeen quoted €285 plus vat for new one but looking for a better deal!!
2. there is a persistent squeak from the front suspension/ or just behind dash when you go over bumps in the road aswell as going over speed bumps. any ideas what could be the problem or is there a general problem with these Alfa's that i am not aware of
3. Main remote key will only open the doors once your 2 feet from the car no further, spare key remote does not work (replaced battery and still no joy) being quoted €200 plus vat per key to have fixed but that sounds a bit to pricey if you ask me. any ideas where i might get a better deal
4. Reception from radio is diabolical. The owners manual states that the aerial is housed in the rear spoiler, is there any way of improving the signal?
I would appreciate any help on these.
