  1. Need advice

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    They were out of stock since atleast June 2019, that is when I last searched for them lol. I updated my post with some links I found.
  2. Need advice

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    The link says it's out of stock alfaitalia. The c**ts at bosch did indeed stop making them, and according to my local garage, they have to be sourced directly from Alfa Romeo, costing around €160. I don't know how normal people can order from Alfa Romeo directly though, and I would like to know...
  3. Is this the sound of Valves hitting the Pistons? 159 SW 2.2 JTS

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    The mileage was 130k kms. I think the DMF might have died early due to the previous owner driving it at low revs. I didn't end up doing anything with the compression tester unfortunately. I think other than the knocking noise caused by the DMF (which is apparent on the right side of the...

    Problem solved after replacing the clutch and DMF!
  5. Looking for a good home for a Ti 1750Tbi and spares

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Have some self respect and get yourself a porsche :cheeky: Because it autopilots into things and kills people or traps you in your car and burns you to death? :cheeky: Only thing they are brilliant at is marketing.

  7. 06 Brera - think ive messed up!

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Exactly why I brought it! It looks mean and also has the looks to back it up, which most cars don't do and end up looking like chavs while this looks like a Bond villan :rofl:
  8. 06 Brera - think ive messed up!

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    You're welcome! Pretty much yea, what I did was see which Wifi OBD dongle had the best reviews on amazon and brought it. There might be a slight chance that it won't work for some reason, in which case just return it and buy another. I recommend buying one which is small- the fuse box cover...
  9. Alfa romeo 159 SW 8V 88kw heater display problem

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Same thing happened to me (heats/cools but nothing on display) when I reconnected my battery. In my case it resolved itself after a few restarts. Fingers crossed it's the same problem here i.e. you reconnect the system and keep it connected for a few days. I think it's some kind of a safe mode...
  10. Alfa Romeo Tonale: New Small SUV Launch at Geneva

    General Alfa Discussion
    I agree that there is a small subset of buyers who want a driver's car and also an SUV. :rotate:
  11. Alfa Romeo Tonale: New Small SUV Launch at Geneva

    General Alfa Discussion
    This is what I mean. To explain my view further, I think there are 2 types of Alfa buyers. 1. People who love driver's cars, 2. People who like the fashion accessory-ness of it. I feel Alfa is trying to gain the type 2 crowd, while in my opinion alienating the type 1 crowd (no way that a...
  12. Passenger side window goes only down.

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Does it go down when you pull up on it really hard or just with normal amount of force? I had the problem on my driver's side where I had to pull up hard (and it would go down) then sort of jiggle it a bit to find the sweet spot to make it go up. In my case, it was the membrane of the switch...
  13. 159 2.2 JTS flickering lights - Alternator/Regulator?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Problem solved by replacing the diode plate and voltage regulator. But I need to make a long journey to be sure. I definitely recommend you get electrical faults like this fixed as soon as possible, as it might damage some of the sensitive electronics in the car. My rain sensing wipers started...
  14. Power steering

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Then put in green fluid and cross your fingers tightly :rofl: I once had a engine oil leak (oil drain is more accurate) and so much oil fell onto the belt that the pump wasn't turning anymore. Steering was hard to turn at standstill but wasn't that bad while moving. So I wonder if you have a...
  15. Power steering

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    The steering wheel not centering might be a bad rack and pinion according to this video: I feel my steering is heavy as well compared to any modern car. It might just be that hydraulic power steering is heavier compared to electric power steering. Maybe other owners can enlighten us with how...
  16. 159 2.2 JTS flickering lights - Alternator/Regulator?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Thanks for the reply! My alternator never touched 14 V so that might be it. Does the flickering imply that one coil isn't working properly? The first thing I checked were the earths and connections with voltmeter, seems like they are fine (un)fortunately. First thing I'm gonna try is to...
  17. 159 2.2 JTS flickering lights - Alternator/Regulator?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hello everybody. My 2.2 JTS 159 has developed a problem, where most of the time all lights flicker rhythmically irrespective of the load on the system - faster at low RPM and slower at higher RPM. When there is a load on the electrical system at idle like the radiator fan turning on, the...
  18. I'm out :(

    Alfa Giulia
    Well they put the margin there for a reason didn't they? Brooking's car had wastegate solenoid issue. I don't see how it's relevant here. The codes from Brooking's car are P0244 and P0248. Google search for P0244 + giulia quadrifoglio points to these posts: Chipped...
  19. I'm out :(

    Alfa Giulia
    I think the remap has screwed your engine. Only other search result for this problem is another guy's Giulia QV with an after-market exhaust. The 100's of automobile engineers who designed the engine would have gotten the extra 50 HP if they thought it was safe.
  20. Steering wheel retaining nut torque

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    It's a M16 nut according to Elearn (attached). 45-55 Nm.
