    Hi all, Turned my 2.4 Brera on today to demist the windscreen and... nothing. The dual aircon display works perfectly and all buttons work etc but no air comes out whatsoever! If you listen carefully, when pressings the airflow arrows (window, face or feet) you can actually hear the airflow...
  2. Help required: removing air vents

    Alfa MiTo
    Evening all, A quick search on the forum yielded no results, so here we go: how does one remove the 4 air vents from the dashboard? Specifically, the 4 round front-facing ones. If I recall from the 159, it takes two J-shaped pieces of wire/metal and a firm tug to pull them free. Is it the same...

  10. Alfa 156 -05 air conditioning blowing only hot when coolant sensor is connected

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Did some investigation today with AlfaOBD. If I disconnect the sensor I get water temperature reading stable 120C. If I shortcut the sensor connector it shows -20C. I connected the sensor and started cold engine. I had not used the car for two days. Outside air temp 17C, Cabin air temp 17C...

    Hi All I drove about 20 yards today with the aircon blasting cold air over me. Then it just stopped, the fans stopped. The controls panel was on but did nothing. Switched on and off everything but nothing! Has this happened to you and what was the fault? Cheers James

    Hi, my AC has just packed up, it is accompanied with a faint whistle through the vents when I press the AC button, is this a basic recharge situation or some sort of leak in the system?
  13. Ignition and Air Con Power Source For Fan Install

    Alfa GTA
    Howdy. I'm putting in a new lightweight fan and alloy rad and the fan kit control module needs a power source which goes on with the ignition and one that goes on when the air con starts (air con clutch) Any ideas on the best place to tap into these?
  14. "Air" resonance

    Alfa Giulia
    If i roll down both back windows (front are up) and go above 50 mph, a weird "air" resonance occurs in the back. Quite unbearable, had to slow down/roll the back windows up, almost popped my ears :biglaugh: Anyone else has noticed/experienced this?

    Alfa MiTo
    Hi all, newbie here. My wife has a MiTo twin air. Has anyone idea of how to check the oil? The dipstick is, well, oil coloured and I can't make any marks. Are the marks the bottom of the thin bit for 'min' and the top of the thin bit for max? Also, what is the volume between the two points...
  16. 2.4 JTD intake air temperature sensor

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I have a 156 2.4 150hp. Car has a fault code which suggests the intake air temperature sensor would be broken. Is there a sensor for it or is it built in to the maf? I have a new sensor but can't find it anywhere in the car and also can't find any information about it.

  19. Drop in air filter recommendation

    Alfa MiTo
    Dear all, I have just gotten a 1.4TB (114kw/ 155bhp). I like to have some sound on the turbo spool or oosh but not willing to have the one with open pod which is way too noisy and loud. Just something better than stock will be good. Will BMC or K&n be able to achieve that?
