    Calling all pre-facelift 156 owners with Xenon lights, are the headlight units specific for LHD and RHD cars? ePer suggests so but I'm curious to know the difference, are the igniters angled differently or something to give the correct beam pattern or is beam pattern etc controlled entirely by...

    Hello Knowledgeable Alfa Owners I'm Sean and As the proud owner of this current 156 jTDm 20V for over 12 years, I've never had much reason to reach out for help, its been totally reliable and for last 6 years looked after by Dan and the boys at AutoLusso in Penrith, where she is sitting now...

    Hi guys, just looking for some advice. I’m currently running a 156 that I have fully stripped out and have done a couple of modifications to. It’s a 1.8TS. I’m currently running 17” wheels with semi slick Toyo Proxes but I think the car would benefit in many ways from a smaller wheel. The 17s...

    Another one for the Sportwagon owners... If you have keep-fit rear windows and the winder just spins endlessly is this a pain to fix or a simple job? The window glass can be slid down by placing the palms on the outside of the glass and pulling down. I know it's hard to know without removing the...

    Calling all Sportwagon owners, how do you remove the tailgate trim panel which covers the rear wiper motor? I removed 8 screws (I think it was 8) but it appears to be secured by some plastic clips, possibly the christmas tree type? Whatever they are they're bloody strong as gave up thinking I...

    Hi! I will be looking at a 156 2.5L V6 in a couple of days, and I'm trying to understand what trim level it is supposed to be. Based on the VIN and some VIN decoders, it is said to be 'Distinctive'. But the car has a big spoiler I'm the back and a fale carbon center console, and from what I...

    Today's little job was to replace the long roof seal that goes from the top of the front wing back along the roof to the rear door handle. Amazingly you can still get these and it's quite a nice easy job compared to other seals on the 156. So for those interested or thinking of doing this job...

    I've recently bought this Alfa and immediately seem to be victim of one of the traditional electrical 'charms' that one reads about quite regularly. Having said this I've searched around and can't find a definitive answer for the fault I'm experiencing: Every so often the car won't start; all...

    Good to see these commanding strong money, but this... is very strong. 30-odd thousand miles is low and there can't be many with that mileage. Be interesting to see if it sells...

    Today I changed the air filter for my 156 V6 and all seemed well until I took it for a drive and found that the brake pedal is stuck in position that it goes to when in park, while driving. The brakes still work although not very well at all and the pedal itself does not have much movement. The...

    Hi, I have read the manual, many articles and watched a few videos on this problem so I know it could possibly be fixed. My problem is I have bought a cheap(ish) Bluetooth OBDII reader off of ebay and I am just wondering if my OBDII Bluetooth device should be able to read this code and reset it...

    Morning Alfisti. Have the V6 owners among us ever found a supplier for the small retaining clips that secure the engine loom connectors to the coil packs? They don’t seem to be a standard thing which I suppose isn’t surprising... Thanks 👍

    My wiper mechanism has been threatening to give up recently (I think it's the motor), thankfully the parts shed has come to the rescue as I managed to get one from Partsworld a while back. The part I bought was GTA specific if you're interested although I'm not sure what the difference is -...

    Hi all, New here - just picked up a 1999 Alfa Romeo 156 2.5 V6 Sport Pack 3 (One of only 5 remaining in the UK!) yesterday, and there's a couple of little things (and one large thing - starts with c, ends with ambelt) that I need to sort. One of the small things is that the dipstick that has...

    Hi guys, I recently started having problems with the wiper on my Alfa 156, 1.9jtd 2003 model (facelift interior). I purchased a 2nd hand one from the scrappers from a similar car and although the motors are identical physically, the plugs seem to be different. Mine is a squarish plug with 6...

    Evening Alfisti, I'm hoping that after Dan's treatment my GTA will be nearly finished, or at least the big work will be finished, key word being hope. My question is what does everyone do when it comes to cosmetics, specifically in a couple of areas. With regards to the fuel rails how do...
