1998

  1. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Just tidying up my pretty tidy `98 156 V6 (manual) and was wondering where I may be able to obtain the sticker that went into the rear window of the `98 156`s indicating they were winners of the European Car of the Year. Does anyone know of someone who is able to supply, either an original, or a...

    Hi guys, I just bought me a 'car of the year' 1998 Alfa 156 2.0 TS. We already have a 2001 156 1.8TS with 160k miles on it. The 1998 has 51k miles, and had the timing belt done in 2004 at 31k miles. So AlfaWorkshop in Royston recommends the belt(s) be done evey 36k or 3 years. Why every 3...

    Hi guys, needing your help in identifying this noise which sounds internal & more prominent at idle, my car seems to be running fine apart from this noise which has got me stumped. I have removed timing belt cover to check for faulty tensioners and pulleys but all seems fine. I have also...

    Hi All My Spider has sprung a leak so just looking for some thoughts on what the problem could be please. After a 20 minutes drive yesterday, I then found a puddle of water in the well behind the drivers seat which I had to soak up - hopefully the carpet will be fine once dried out.. There was...

    I have recently purchased a GTV V6 and am having trouble with the drivers window - it won’t close fully, gets the shudders when when nearly all the way up, and jumps up/down then drops about a centimetre when you let go of control. Any suggestions greatly appreciated Cheers

    Vela blue with tan Momo leather interior. This is an early phase 2 Lusso model with the 5 speed gearbox and CD autochanger. I have owned the car for nine years and the previous owner owned the car for 10 years. I have a huge history file demonstrating that this car has been lovingly cared for...

Just been mot’d, R818 MNJ, if you want the details of the advisories but basically needs - new front discs - new tyres - rear coils both sides and rear offside lower suspension arm - oil leak...

    I have just imported a really nice 1998 3.0 litre GTV from UK to NZ but it has some electrical issues. The only item that works as it should is the indicators! What doesn't work is the lights, wipers, fan, speedo, windows, horn and probably a few other things I haven't found yet. Also, if the...

    Hi there I wonder if anyone can help me with a power steering leak I have. My car is a 1998 gtv v6 and I have a leaking connection between the supply rubber hose where it joins on to the metal pipe which is attached to the pump by a banjo connection. The metal pipe looks very rusty and so I...
  10. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi guys, just wondering if anybody has encountered this problem before. I was pulling up to a set of lights and the car stalled. Now it won't fire up, it seems to turn but it won't fire, if that makes sense. I'm a complete amateur with mechanics etc Here is a link to the car trying to start...
  11. Alfa 164 & 166
    Hello! Got blinking injection light but car runs fine. A bit rough when idling tough. A while back the heater matrix was swapped since it was leaking and maybe some part of the cable loom was pinched/damaged. It runs in the same neighbourhood as the parts that was removed in order to get the...

    Is it possible to fit electric seats on a 1998 car? I have found a set of gta seats that are electric and I want to put them in my 3.0 156. Mine were manual so I'm wondering if it is possible use these at all or will I have to look for a manual set?
  13. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    After a lot of electrical problems since i bought it i am now thinking of breaking it. Its a shame really as the engine is in good working order and so is the gearbox. If i get enough interest then it will be getting broken for parts

    Struggling to find a ph1 fuse box. Loads of ph2 fuse boards but not many ph1. Is it possible to fit a ph2 board?
  15. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    My r/h window has gone. I bought a new regulator for 1995-2005 GTV but turns out its an auto drop and my 1998 car is non auto drop windows. Will it work? What do I need to change? Can I just ignore the micro switch? Do I need to swap my longer cam bar in place of the shorter one on the new...

    Hallo, I feel the need for a thicker steering wheel in my 166, but how, where, and what?
  17. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi guys, I have a 1998, 2.0 GTV with a problematic gearbox. I also have a 2001, 156 2.0 TS, which has been completely stripped owing to engine failure. Snapped valve!! Question is .... do they have the same gearbox? Am wanting to replace the GTV 'box as second gear is almost unobtainable. TIA...

    For want of some inner wing welding and tax and MOT at the end of August, I am happy to part with my 156. Owned since 2006 and 68000 miles young, this would suit a handy lover of the marque or make an ideal donor car for your own pride and joy. CF2 engine is lusty and the body and interior are...
  19. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    My car just had new belts and the garage binned the undertray saying it was knackered. The engine looks a bit open to the elements now and all the trays on ebay are for phase 1 as i've checked. If anyone has a spare I'd be interested.... Thanks:-)

    Anyone on here with actual knowledge/experience with the best setup (in detail) when its lowered 30mm, running Koni FSD dampers and Powerflex all over. I already had it done, but it does not feel good enough.. Too lively/following tracks in the road too much?
