For those who have just read this on the "Newcomers page" .. I apologise for the duplication .. I am hoping to get the gurus opinions on this .. so I can get it sorted !! ..
here we go ...
Have recently (very recently .. last weekend in fact) .. purchased a lovely GTV V6 .. in gun metal grey with cream leather interior.
Registered in March 2000 -- it has all the gadgets needed - air con; 6-speed gearbox .. those lovely 17" wheels, spoiler .. etc etc.
It has 55,000 miles and has just gone into a specialist to have its belt changed (better safe than sorry me thinks!).
The question I have is ....
I was told that on this car the windows ought to drop a little when the door is opened, and then close properly when the door is closed again ... however the car doesnt do this !
The chap who is doing the cambelt for me -- has contacted an Alfa person, and this Alfa person swears that the car ought to have this "drop window" function.
I hate to have a car as nice as this and find something doesnt work on it .. so I need to find out the truth .. and get it sorted.
1) how so I go about finding out if the car does have this function?
2) what should I look for to find out what has stopped working ? (is it a relay thing, a switch .. something simple and cheap (perhaps not !) .. or something horrendously expensive !?)
Please excuse my novice ways - but I am really keen to learn more about these cars .. hope someone out there can give me the advice and guidance.
p.s the engine absolutely sings to me -- I swear its name is Pavarotti !
