OK it looks like I need to get myself a rachet set to get this sorted, amazon time.

So, tools required screwdriver and ratchet set with appropriate sized head.

Replaced hinge on door handle today(147 facelift),alot of fiddling about but easy enough on the whole,pushed a stanley knife along the bottom edge of the blank in the door handle and it just popped out without marking blank or door handle to my suprise!Worst part was unscrewing/screwing the hinge off/onto the handle as its at an angle.I used this vid and didn't have to remove window or any disconnect rods

I think it's been mentioned here before but it would seem that the Fiat 500 door handle is identical and half the price of the Alfa ones. Would be good if anyone can confirm part number and or has tried to fit with success. I plan to buy one as been round the car park today and compared my broken alfa pass side door handle to the 500's and other that the level of shininess (is that a word?) is better on the 500 they look identical.

The challenges only come if you don't have the right tooling. A decent rachet on a right angle.

Where did you get the key cover.
