  1. What have you done to your 159/Brera/Spider today?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Winter is definitely here...I can tell by how every time I start my car when it's below freezing I get the following pop up on the dash until she has warmed up a bit. "Windshield wiper automatism not available" ....such good English too! By the way....on Friday I will be replacing my EGR...
  2. Re-programming a key fob for an Alfa 159

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    ...but you can do it with MES...and alfaOBD.....or so they both claim!
  3. Why all Auto

    Alfa Stelvio
    Most manual cars still give better mpg than the auto equivalent....so if autos burn more fuel I doubt that overall they give out less emissions. I quickly looked at the mpg of a few poplar models with both transmissions....even the best autos were only equalling the manuals on fuel...
  4. What have you done to your 159/Brera/Spider today?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I need to do the release under the bonnet....the plastic end bit broke off two days after I bought the car!! It opens fine but its a bit fiddly.
  5. At last, a new returnee 156

    Introduce Yourself
    Nice....reminds me of my red 156...…..
  6. Why all Auto

    Alfa Stelvio
    Also or course we are one of the few nations in the world where manuals outsell autos so they tend to think of the global market rather than just one small country. They are also making an effort with the States...were manuals are very much a thing of the past. That's the reason you have not...
  7. Why all Auto

    Alfa Stelvio
    I assume they would make it.....if they thought there was enough market for it. I guess there isn't.
  8. Re-programming a key fob for an Alfa 159

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    The deeply skeptical part of me is very suspicious that something that many experts have failed to do for a long time can now be done relatively cheaply. Im a one key person so an keen to get another. Hopefully someone with more faith than me who I can trust will get one done ….just to prove to...
  9. Another knocking tread

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    The long one....near the sump.
  10. climate control system

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Its not a fault....that's how its supposed to work.
  11. Another knocking tread

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Mine was lower rear engine mount (the dog bone shape one roughly inline with the pedals.....just a thought.
  12. Vehicle Protection System Unavailable

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    You can pull out the fob when the engine is running if you don't push it fully in, in the first place. In fact you can often start your car just by holding the key in front of the hole...not inserting it at all.....the receiver has a range of an inch or so.
  13. Vehicle Protection System Unavailable

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Don't think so..... "vehicle protection system" is just the steering lock I think.. Alarms, immobilisers etc have their own warnings and dash notifications.
  14. TBI oil sump removal

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    My pickup seal "looked ok"...but was much harder than the replacement....a new one cured the problem for me.
  15. Clover Leaf badge for GTV

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Nope...the quote I posted came from the MOT testers handbook....no airbag (in a car that babe with it) no pass. But you are right there is evidence that old airbags are less efficient ( in both deployment and protection offered) but there is no law saying that they ever need to be replaced or...
  16. 159 TI - Think rear shocks failed

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Springs...not shocks..Very common. Factory ones are rubbish Three out of my four went within a couple of weeks. Shocks don't affect ride height to any measurable degree. EDIT....beaten to it by a faster typer!
  17. Alfa Romeo GT 1.9JTD engine sound?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I have a stethoscope I bought purpose made for the job...like a stethoscope on the ear end and a solid steel rod the other...works great...much better access to components than my old big screwdriver I used to use. Cheap too..... Car Mechanics Stethoscope Auto Vehicle Engine Diagnostic...
  18. Vehicle Protection System Unavailable

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    So does it lock and unlock now ….or is it just permanently unlocked?
  19. Clover Leaf badge for GTV

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Yeah...afraid so...under the new rules..... "The vehicle will fail the test if any airbag fitted as original equipment is obviously missing or defective."
  20. Clover Leaf badge for GTV

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
