  1. 105 spider heater Fan (removal)

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    My heater fan has stopped working. It seems like the fan has come away from the motor as the motor is still working in both speeds but no air is being blown around. There is also a spinning sound when the fan is switched on and off. My manual and what Ive found on the web is very limited but...

    Hi, I'm trying to source a set of metal weatherstrips for my 68 Giulia 1300 saloon. These are the strips that sit at the bottom of the side windows. Does anyone have any to sell or know where I can source them from.
  5. Importing 105 coupe sills from the UK

    South Africa
    Anybody import outer sills for the 105 coupes from the UK recently? I'm interested in what the shipping costs and duties would be. Okay, duties I can estimate but the shipping costs are what I'm more interested in.

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    The tensioning wires on my spider soft top are missing, the wire appears to have a loop on one end where about does the loop fit onto the frame before it enters into the frame and then on to the knurled adjusting fitting
  8. What's the history of the different coloured fronts on 105 race cars?

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    I'm guessing it's something to do with the GTA's but is there any particular reason and are the different colour combinations significant?
  9. 105 series later type Radiator & Cowl

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    I've just advertised my spare radiator on Ebay. Doesn't atart until 9.15pm this evening. Was used for the first three months on my GTA Rep, then I changed it for the slightly earlier type that has the...
  10. Rusty rear seat GTV

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    I have rust corrosion right in the middle of the panel under the rear drivers side seat. The patch (about 10 inch square) is directly under where your bum would be if you sit in the back. I have just spoken to CA and they say they do not fabricate these panels, nor have I seen them anywhere...
  11. 4 month review - used 105 MA for undecided lurkers

    Alfa MiTo
    Post really aimed at lurkers who are considering being first time Mito owners I said I'd review my used 105 multiair Mito after some months and so here it is. I got the 2012 no extras model in March so 4 months in: Nice place to be in the cabin, lots of room, and I personally like the light...
  12. Show me your Pedals (105 standing)

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Mid way through welding a new floor piece and chassis rail, can anyone share how their pedal setup looks? And whether there is a rubber boot that slips over the bottom of the pedals to stop water coming in? Cheers!
  13. Inside boot (trunk for those across the pond) of 105 series 2000GTV

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    A bit of help please. How should the boot floor be finished, ie carpeted or not; I believe not? Mine is, and frankly it would seem pretty naked without a bit of something in there, ie just the top of the tank, a bit of metal floor, and a spare wheel! Am asking as am just about to fit a new fuel...
  14. Rear brake ate calipers and Pistons 105 GTV

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    So, I have just spent two hours unsuccessfully trying to change the pads on my rear disc brakes. The problem is that the new green stuff pads are much thicker than the ones I am taking out and I am unable to get the piston to retract. I released both pins, removed the spring and took the pads...
  15. First Peak Alfa Service - used 2012 MA 105 - follow up advice required

    Alfa MiTo
    Took the car last week for the first service I have ever done in my life on my used car. Very nice people, It cost 249 which included sorting one squeaky window and the other one is about to go so I'll be going back soon as it sounds horrendous. I think it may have been Roger (didn't get his...
  16. Is there a knack to using D in DNA - 105 MA

    Alfa MiTo
    I've had my little 105 MA for just under a month and slowly but surely I am getting used to driving it (and loving it by the way), though still tend to over rev due to seating position more than anything I think. So I know this is one of the slower models, and I have been fiddling every now and...
  17. A new age 105 would be nice!!

    Motoring Images
    With the new line up coming of the Guilia, Stelvio and of course the already acclaimed 4c, it would be nice to see a new age 105. Maybe something like the below.
  18. collecting 105 multi air on Friday - took the plunge!

    Alfa MiTo
    I am collecting the 2012 1.4 car on Friday, so I did it............... kind of. I really wanted a 135/140 however couldn't travel far with no transport so decided to dip my toe in with the 105. The only other two I could have looked at that were 140 were both really high mileage, one was...

  20. close to buying 2012 1.4 105 multi air and need advice!

    Alfa MiTo
    just test driven the car and it felt ok, 31,000 miles and full service history, though I have not actually looked at this yet - hoping to take someone with me soon. I am concerned about the cambelt and they said 5 years before it needs changing, car registered March 2012. Just a bit nervous to...
