Alfa 156 T.SPARK

New to Alfa

I just bought a 556 1.6L T.SPARK for 995, 95K on clock, 2001.

I am really happy so far, best drive I have had, understand now why Top Gear praise Alfa so much.
Question is the car had a new cambelt at 55K, would you suggest I put a new one on?
I have a squeak that sounds like it coming behind the dash, going to try soaking all the struts+components in WD40 later to see if I can get rid of the mouse.
Also can someone please tell me where the maf is?, read it on here.
I have rust of my windscreen wipers, can you buy new ones locally?
I have a couple of backlit dash board lights off: Oil temperature and also the LCD?
Anyone know how to replace them?

Hello and welcome to AO.....
Cambelt change interval is 3 years or 36k miles so I would definately get it done......
