  4. Trunk / Boot light Not working and only getting 0.39V

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I noticed that the trunk light wasn't working, so I thought, oh the light bulb must be out, simple fix - yeah I wish. Examined the bulb, which interestingly did not look blown, so I went ahead and switched out the whole light box/switch (however you want to call it) from the other 147, which was...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT

  6. 147 Subwoofer / Amplifier Power Wire Wiring Through Firewall Tips in a LHD

    ICE & Blue&Me
    After a miserable time running the sub wires in my 147, I think this could help make your install a bit easier. I used the grommet above the abs module, used by the hood latch cable and some thick harness. It is above and to the left of the pedals when looking from inside. Access to the grommet...

  8. 147 1.6TS Stainless Exhaust

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I've just bought my old 147 1.6TS back off my brother and had it up on my father in law's lift to do an oil change and once over at the weekend. The back box is very corroded (probably not helped by all the flooded roads recently) and I could stick my finger right through it, the rest of the...
  9. 3.2 V6 Starter Motor

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Evening Alfisti :). Am I right in thinking that the 147/156/GT 3.2 V6 range all used the same starter motor? Part number 55193406 keeps coming up but when I search for that part it shows up in a couple of places but only for the GT 3.2. ePer then shows 55193410 for the 156 GTA starter, odd...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I can't find a definitive answer on this - I'm thinking of buying a GT & it would be great if I could use my winter tyres without having to buy a whole new set! Also - does anyone know anywhere to buy a set of secondhand GT LHD headlights? Many thanks
