    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    very cool, thank you! Will give it a go and report what I find.
  2. Boot Light/Door drop ****ing me off!

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Thanks for this. Not really experienced with doing this. How much voltage should I expect to see? Also which side is positive or does it matter? Or should I remove the module and plug into the white plug? If so the red wire would go with red on the meter?
  3. Boot Light/Door drop ****ing me off!

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    OK, so it's the little things that really drive me batty and this stupid boot light is one of them. I've now got two new bulbs and still no joy. I took out my multi-meter and put the probes either end. When I flick the micro-switch in the boot lock we see approx 5A going through. Push it in...
  4. ALFA specialist servicing - Anyone recomended in the South East?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Is Feli (used to be Sunnyside) too far? http://autoalfa.co.uk. I've used them a fair bit in the past and they have always been good.
  5. New short shifter

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Thanks for taking the time to answer John. Some food for thought!
  6. New short shifter

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    This really looks good, nice job! Couple of questions. Is it reversable if you wanted to put it all back to stock? Will you possibly be offering your services to make for other AO members? I'm close to useless with this kind of work and if it wasn't too dear could be interested in doing this...
  7. Boot Light/Door drop ****ing me off!

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    One other question. Do you have a link to a web site that has the correct boot light bulb? I thought they were 5w 36mm festoons. I had the original and a spare that has been in my kit for years. Neither worked but it's a possiblity that both are duff. I do not want LED and that seems to be...
  8. Boot Light/Door drop ****ing me off!

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Many thanks for this. I really am **** with the DIY wiring stuff so may just get a new boot lock. On the window I sprayed the crap out of it today with silicon spray and when toggling it in the lock it worked really well. Figured I may have sussed it. Finished all the other cleaning jobs...
  9. Boot Light/Door drop ****ing me off!

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    GT boot light not working. It did work when I got the car. When you open the boot the 'Boot Open' indicator comes on on the dash. I've tried two bulbs and even an new light module as the one in there was broken from prying the wrong end. I've tried spraying contact cleaner into the lock...
  10. Valvoline 10W-60 Oil Free

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I have nearly 5 litres of 10w60 Valvoline semi-syn oil that I used to use with my 3.2 GT. Have since switched to Fuchs fully Syn so if anyone in the E. London/Essex area around Woodford wants it it's yours if you pick up. PM me if interested.
  11. Rear parcel shelf

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    can you please link to an example of what you mean? Most of the hits I get when I searched this are ones you need to put in your washing machine.
  12. 2007 GT - wiper performance

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    any way to get ones that are of Germanic quality?
  13. Alfa GT - driver's window short drop/rise problem

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    thanks for your advice. Much appreciated!
  14. Your daily watch

    Way Off Topic
    That is a sweet watch. Love the no-deco numbers on the bezel. Currently considering a 1500t myself.
  15. GT N/S Headlight Washer Jet

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    You're not missing anything. I was just asked by my guy doing the body work if we could possibly find another one. He's pretty OCD (which is good).
  16. Peanuts in the sills?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Wow, never heard of this. Too funny! Have seen very few sills on a GT that weren't at least somewhat pushed in (including mine though they were not too bad). Sadly most mis-interpret the 'arrow' showing the jack point to be right on the arrow when as you know it's pointing 'UNDER'!
  17. GT N/S Headlight Washer Jet

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Unfortunately there is a serious OCD component to my personality that says if something is there and worked when new it should always work so I'm afraid that won't due for me. :D
  18. GT N/S Headlight Washer Jet

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi All, Need a N/S headlight washer jet. Anyone have one spare or know where to find one? New from a stealer is £200 so looking for second hand! Thanks for any help.
  19. GT petrol engines

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Gearing. A 6th gear matters not because even with my GT (V6) 70 is 3000RPM or there about. I find my car pretty quiet though at 3000 though.
  20. I think I need a 3.2 v6 Busso in my life..

    Alfa GTA
    That one looks like it might be nice but from my understanding of rebuilds having gone through the process myself doing only the top end is asking for trouble later. Others with more knowledge may have more to say on that topic.
