  1. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I own 156 2.4JTD 150hp SW 2002 which is only inside face ( if that matters) and i got ot remapped. The fuel adjustment is as much as possible to the point where I would need to upgrade the fuel system, else it will start cutting off cuz of not enough fuel. The turbo has been set to 1.2 bar, it...

    Hi all, Have a 159 q4, and today found the mirrors have stopped adjusting, I can found them in ok (powered) and the left one dippes when Reverse is selected and they both move when pre program buttons are used on seat. I’m guessing it’s just the door switch that’s gone, anyone else found this...

    Hullo again! My GT has imperfect shut lines on the driver side door. The same door has a noisy check strap which I'm going to replace. While I'm inside there, are there any hints or guides on how to get the shut lines... just so?
  4. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Is there any way to set the door to be pulled up or down,and adjust how much to be pulled inside or out on Alfa GT ?

    Hi, further to my post a few weeks ago (, I've sinnce aquired a second hand pushrod and clutch lever, BUT most importantly I've discovered why the pushrod broke. The lever that turns the shaft that pushes the pressure plate in wears, causing...

    Is there a DIY way to roughly set the rear track arms after rebuilding the rear suspension. All I need to do is get the rear wheels to track straight for the journey to and from the MOT station.
  7. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi guys, sorry for the questions. I'm 1 week into to alfa ownership. My drivers ( RHD ) Alfa 156 climate control temp ring is not adjusting. I've seen that it is a common fault, and quite a simple fix. My question is, does any one have a photo of the dry solder joint? I've read a few threads...
  8. Alfa Giulietta
    Jumped into the Giulietta today, drove off and thought 'argh - forget to change the time', checked the time and it was correct! looks like on series 1 cars the time is linked to the DAB signal. Result! One of those times you feel that all that money you spend on changing your car that just a...
  9. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Having read many many posts on unseizing & conversely dealing with loose gear-stick and non centering issues; I understand that the 156 and possibly the GT are provided with adjustment of the gearstick position using the 13mm bolt and changing the position of the small metal tab that rotates on...
  10. The Technology Section
    Hope one of you tech savvy bods can help me here... I have two identical monitors running off my HP Laptop (one on HDMI and the other on VGA). It is in "Extend" mode. My main monitor is set at a resolution, (via Control panel windows 8), of 1920 x 1080 (recommended), which works great. The...

  12. Alfa MiTo
    Is it possible to adjust the sensitivity of the 'movement' sensor on a 2010 1.4 TB Multiair? Every day a neighbour drives past in his F&F (Fast and Furious) Scooby and the exhaust and bass drops set the MiTo's alarm off! :roll eyes: :lol: I think the neighbours are becoming a little fed up...
  13. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I've made a start last night stripping the car to replace clutch/flywheel. I researched the procedure so thought I knew what I was doing. However, the box for the new LUK clutch states clearly that an (v.expensive) special tool must be used when tightening the clutch housing to the flywheel...

  15. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    it's the bolt pointing left/upwars that I want to adjust to get a quicker response from the throttle valve. throttle cable is already tight as it can get. I only want to know if I am messing with something serious, or wont give me that much trouble... thank you!
  16. The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Want to check my tension, I've read the manual and some other posts but I'm not getting it :confused: I know to remove the cam cover, loosen the securing bolt to check the tensioner is free to move against its spring but after this I don't know how to actually set the tension. Do I manually...
  17. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hello. I've had my 159 Lusso for a few days now and so far, so good. It's already humbled a sausage muncher or two on the Queen's highway. It's a Carbonio Black one and lived in the country so it has the usual stone chips on the bonnet and rear arches that I've seen discussed on here and the...

    can anyone tell me how to adjust the tailgate on a sportwagen ? Mine is very hard to close, i sick to death of slaming it all the time, and yes the car has been hit from behind but when it was inspected they couldnt see any damage i think its just the locking mech
  19. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hi all, My preferred tyre fitters are going to give my 159 a proper 4 wheel alignment for me soon. I've read all the way through the various threads on this and will be asking them to set toe to zero. Is anyone able to point me to schematics/diagrams I could print off for them showing...
  20. Alfa MiTo
    Anyone know if caster can be adjusted on the Mito in any easy way - eccentric top mounts used to be the way. My feeling is that in D mode the steering is very self centred and heavy. I'd like to take off a little off that.
