  1. 156 xenon automatic adjustment

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Recently got 2002 156SW with xenon lights. After few evenings i noticed that light is very low. Checked the adjustment sensor and it turned out that its totally wrecked. I still have the sensor on the place, but there is no rod and metall plate that attatches to the suspension bolt. There is...
  2. 147 door adjustment

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi, has anyone adjusted a door on a 147 or a gt? (they look like a similar door, unsure if the procedure is the same) My GTA's offside door rubs somewhere when it goes inside the wing when opened, it must be literally 2 or 3mm too far in towards the wing, I just want to bring it back towards the...
  3. Steering column adjustment

    Alfa MiTo
    As a new MiTo owner ( love it ) can someone confirm that the steering column adjusts in and out as well as up and down. It moves up and down fine, but no amount of force will shift it in or out. Don't want to break it ! Thanks.
  4. 166 - Seat height adjustment stuck, possibly seized

    Alfa 164 & 166
    Has anyone come across this before? The lever on the side of the seats that is supposed to lift them up or lower them down is completely stuck on bother driver's and passenger's sides. They won't budge at all. They probably haven't been moved in a long time and I'm afraid if I force them that...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hey guys, I have created the attached pdf guide to manually adjust your headlights. I have used an italian guide and tried my best to make it reasonably understandable in my poor English. Regards, George

  7. 159 Driver's seat adjustment switch problem

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I don't actually use the memory function much as I'm only the driver and I always use adjustment switch little bit and today I realised problems. 1. Memory function doesn't seem to be working properly. I would make beep upon long press as storing position but when I change seat position and...
  8. Bonnet adjustment

    Alfa Giulietta
    Is it possible to adjust the bonnet or wings so the shut lines are even. I've recently had the cambelt and waterpump replaced and I think the garage may have removed either the wing(s) or bonnet although I cannot assume!! It's annoying me that it's not how it was. There seems to be more of a gap...

  11. Front Seat Back Rest Adjustment

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi... Since owning the car, (Brera) I've never been able to move, adjust, either of the front seats, by just pulling the handle, positioned on the side of the Seat Back Rest. To get it to move, I have to push back on the seat, in the area of the 'Pull-Handle', while simultaneously, pulling on...
  12. Xenon Adjustment

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi, newbie here. I have just bought an 2011 2.0JTM with loads of factory extras on it. One of the extras are the Xenon lights. However they seem to be self levelling quite low. Can they be adjusted or do I have to replace the module in the rear of the car as it might be faulty. Another simple...
  13. Headlights without electric adjustment motors (preFL 147)

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    My headlight adjustment motors have been dead and disconnected for as long as I had the car. Electric adjustment isn't required by MOT here, and I don't load the car heavily, so manual adjustment is fine. Anyway, both of my original headlights are awfully faded, and recently started aiming at...
  14. MiTo 1.4 16V 95hp 5th 6th Gear Adjustment

    Alfa MiTo
    Hi all, My son has just joined the Alfa world, and whilst I’m very familiar with Brera mechanics, the MiTo is new territory for me. The car had a new gearbox just before he bought it, and there appears to be an adjustment issue in the 5th 6th plane, so that when you go for 5th, it’s very near...
  15. TCT clutch adjustment

    Alfa Giulietta
    Has anyone had issue with their TCT clutch slipping? I've noticed recently that when pulling away and sometimes normal gear changes the response seems quite slow. If it was a manual I'd say it was the clutch slipping. Also a couple of weeks back I put my foot down a bit and there was a noise...
  16. 159 hub carrier bush and camber adjustment screw

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi guys, I had to have the rear trailing arm, front left spring and some bushes replaced in the last weeks. The rear trailing arm had rusted through (thank god I wasn't driving when it BROKE IN HALF) and when they lifted it up and started looking around they had a field day. Broken spring, worn...
  17. KW v2 coilovers / upper mounting hole, bolt and camber adjustment

    Alfa GTA
    I am writing to you with a question concerning KW Coilovers V2 (it is valid also for V1 & V3). The upper mounting hole in rear shocks is oval (photo attached) - this means that rear wheel camber can be adjusted. But there is no info about it in KW V2 instruction manual. KW provides the same KW...
  18. Bonnet Height adjustment by hinge??

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi, Next thing to deal with is the height of the bonnet on passenger side by the hinge windscreen area. If you compare to driver side where the red arrow (Bonnet is higher) is on the attached image it higher than the wing side (green arrow). Is there anyway to drop this by undoing the hinge...
  19. Rear Hood Pin Adjustment

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    The rear hood pins on my 1997 manual roof Spider no longer hold in place. The offside started "popping" out of the hood deck some months ago and now the nearside has followed suit. I've had a couple of goes at adjusting the length of the pins but can't get them to hold reliably. The manual...
  20. Head light adjustment

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I think my drivers side dipped light cluster is sat too far back (I can't fit the backing plate over a new LED bulb I've just bought), passenger side seems fine. Does anyone know how to move the cluster forward? Cheers KS
