  1. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi all, Anyone know where I can get the little bracket that sit on these two bolts and push the microswitch for the autodrop windows ? Or anyone have a design for it so that I can make one for myself ?

    Hey all, Just a little bit of advice from my adventures today, I've had no ac / heat in my spider since I baught it, I was advised by a few people that it could be the heater motor control resister, but when i went to remove it I noticed that it was warm, this means that it's actually doing its...

    Hey guys! I just baught a beautiful red 916 as a project/25th birthday present to myself, but it's in need of a bit of work and I'm after a bit of advice as I'm not so well versed with these. The Aircon has stopped working and I have a feeling that the fan has seized, I can hear a relay...
  4. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I'm not really wanting or needed to sell my 156, but it is a big car with a thirsty engine (compared to my Fiat powered Reliant) and as I've yet to actually take my driving test, not something I can use every day. May consider selling it though to buy another project car (and keep my insurance...

    Is there a link to purchase a wind deflector that will bolt into the spider without drilling holes? There seems to be different models with slightly different mounting options. I have a small oval blank plate on each side of the back tray near the top which i assume reveals mount holes for the...
  6. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi, I am hoping some one can point me in the right direction. I am looking to replace the roof seals on my Spider, specifically those that are right above the door windows, I think its 2 per side. I have found the long one that runs down the the side on ebay/partsworld. Thanks

    I am trying to source a dual mass flywheel and clutch set for my Spider. There are several suppliers listed on eBay including Techniclutch who have received terrible reviews on Google. Has anyone had any experience in sourcing these items from Techniclutch or elsewhere, how was the quality and...
  8. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi Everyone, My mechanic tells me I need a new ignition switch for my GTV 2001 and he has removed the faulty one, a circular plastic unit. I have checked the EPER site here FIAT ePER :: The FIAT Forum and I have found a part called "starter commutator" FA 41 part number 60668391. I am...
  9. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Driving home today noticed the guage was off the scale. Was close to home and made it back. Checking it as soon as I stopped the expansion tank was up to level but using my laser thermometer the radiator was cold, the expansion tank was essentially cold but the thermostat housing was at 111...
  10. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    My friends' 2001 1.8 TS seems to have an erratic fan? It spins briefly for short bursts before reaching 90 c and then when the engine is hot in traffic the fan does not cut-in until rather late when the engine temperature is high (around the three quarter mark) but before the last marker and...
  11. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Bit of a long shot but anyone have spare coil packs and HT leads they wish to sell. I need them for my Spider Twinnie and reluctant to spend a load of money on new ones at the moment as money a bit tight. Recent not on my 159 and it cost me a fair bit.:disappointed:
  12. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Ok,,, so I have the 156 delivered by client with no selespeed unit fitted. Customer has supplied a "New" unit, I,ve fitted said unit but cant find any info on how the wiring is positioned on sensors and solenoids. Laying the wiring loom on top of the unit doesnt actually help, was hopeing that...

    My aircond stopped cooling 6 months ago. I did not care at the time as it was not very hot anyway. No cold air us coming out. Connecting multiecuscan does not say anything that I think us of value. No faults logged and the sensors seems to indicate believable values. The compressor is engaging...
  14. Alfa 164 & 166
    When putting the shifter in Sport, the signals from the shifter, to activate shifting up/down is electrical, right? And if so, it should be fairly easy to add switches that activate shifting from the steering wheel, right?
  15. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I have just come across this spider which needs a bit of tlc. one of the first tasks is to change the rear springs, I am struggling to find any suplex around at the right price but have found some KYB springs, don't know much about these any one got any experience with them?
  16. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I seem to have a fuel gauge that reads erratically on my spider. When starting her up it will often register as empty despite having over half a tank. The yellow light will be flashing etc After a while, say 15 minutes or so driving it will often settle down and read what I believe is the...
  17. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Having owned this car for the best part of 3 years I sadly have to let it go due to the arrival of 159 Sport Wagon. I purchased the car from the original owner as a stop gap after being let down by a BMW main dealer. So impressed with my first Alfa that I ended up keeping it and only replacing...

    Hi all, first post but long time reader. Thanks in advance to anyone who can assist with the following; I'm in the reassembly phase on a bottom end re-build of a 1970cc CF3 twin spark engine, which has been battling me from the start. Latest problem is that there is evidence of interference...
  19. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    After 7 years it is time to say goodbye to my Alfa Romeo 156. This car has been through the tumults of life with me and been impeccable the whole time, so it is a wrench I have long put off. I set my sights on a red Alfa in 2011 and this 10 year old 2 owner car was the one that providentially...
  20. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I've finally managed to persuade my sister to get an Alfa. Went with her last night to look at a 2001 147 1.6ts - car was in good condition although strangely it did not have alloy wheels! I cant remember the last time I saw an alfa without alloys. Is this normal? Thanks in advance for any...
