  1. A crashed GT

    Behold, the photo in which I wasn't smart enough to try cleaning the terminals. Sat in the rain with windows rolled down.
  2. Tuning & Upgrades
    Hello guys, I got me an alfa 156 2.4jtd 150 hp which runs great :) I see that my wastegate has a nut which I can tighten to adjust the turbo boost and I am being tempted A LOT by these things. So here comes the question. Can I turn it just a bit so I will get a bit more boost and therefore...

  4. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Dear all, I recently bought a 916 spider ('01, 3.0 V6 24, phase 2) and it is absolutely brilliant (see photo). Unfortunately, the mechanism that locks/releases the hood cover has failed. Not surprisingly, the plastic gear has broken. However, no outer teeth are stripped, but all of the inside...
  5. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Dear all, Unfortunately, the mechanism that locks/releases the hood cover has failed on my '01 spider (phase 2). Not surprisingly, the plastic gear has broken. However, no outer teeth are stripped, but all of the inside five "cams", one of which is indicated by the black arrow in the attached...
  6. Alfa MiTo
    So recently purchased a 2014 Mito, great car, really happy with it. One small annoyance I'm finding is that the steering wheel is just a little too far away from the door for me to rest my arm. I know the steering wheel is adjustable up and down, and in the manually it states the steering...
  7. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all as I am still new to the new fangled 937s and I am hoping for an easy way out. My front tyres are wearing badly on the inside of the tread consistent with an excessive amount of camber..Can this be corrected by an adjustment? If not what is the preferred method of resetting to factory...
  8. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I'm not gonna explain the whole disassembly and function of the VNT turbo, becuse there is a whole lot of info out there. This is just about adjusting the actuator stop screw in case you want to replace your CHRA. Just a few hints though: >Bolts that hold the turbo and bolts on the turbo...
  9. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi Since I had the front bumper repaired on my 2003 156 JTS, the headlamp washers and electric headlight position adjuster do not work. I suspect that the body shop has disconnected some wires and not reconnected them. I cannot see anything unplugged. Has anyone got any suggestions about...
  10. Alfa 164 & 166
    Can anyone advise how to adjust the date and the time on the ICS (1999/2000 vintage)? The owner's ICS manual is completely useless in this regard and I can't see any way to change either display. As per the attached pic, the date reads '7.9.97' and while the time is right (more or less) for the...
  11. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hi all, So my handy mechanic that tried to do a wheel alignment managed to displace and wreck the bushes that are "stabilizing" the rear toe adjust. It's hard to explain in detail which bushes I'm talking about so I attached a picture to clarify. Bushing of interest is shown in red in the...
  12. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Finally got around to replacing the handbrake cables on my Brera Q4. I had a look before doing the job and found a thread for the job on a 159, but nothing for a Brera. Also, I've taken some pics of mine so thought I would make a quick walkthrough for anyone interested...
  13. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi there I've a problem with Alfa Romeo GT 2.0 JTS ( Xenon headlights ). Right headlight self adjustment doesn't work when left one is connected. If i disconnect left headlight - right one works perfectly - when i connect right one - only right one is working. Where to look can anyone suggest...
  14. The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Hello Alfa Spider Fans My 1990 S4 has a great looking soft top that had been renovated before I got him. However, putting it up is a titanic struggle because it seems to be too tight to latch easily. Yes it latches eventually after scraped knuckles and effectively having a handy heavy helper sit...
  15. Alfa Giulietta
    Hey guys, i am a new and proud owner of a slightly used LHD Giulietta Multiair from Thessaloniki, Greece! It's an outstanding car, i love it so much. But there seems to be an issue with my right headlight (left if you are out of the car :smile:). Sometimes when the dipped lights are on, i...
  16. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi, Does anyone know of a way to adjust the windows on the GT, on the passenger side in mine the glass is starting to sit further and further away from the seal, not at the top, at the B pillar where the door shuts. I pretty sure it can probably be done by removing the door card but just...
  17. Alfa 164 & 166
    how do i adjust the time in the clock of the trip computer of my 166 lusso 2.5 v6 24v?
  18. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hi all, Can anyone tell me how the rotary switch on the dash adjusts the headlights? How does one test that the switch is working? Thanks in advance.
  19. Alfa GTA
    My car recently had an MOT test and they adjusted the headlight aim. It would appear badly. Up to about 20 metres the beam on the right is a shade higher than the left, but as distance grows, the aim is skywards. After maybe 40 metres it is over the roof of the car in front. That isn't right. I...
