    Hi all, I just bought a red 2005 GT 3.2 v6, really happy with it! However, there is a slight niggle. When starting the car, the "low battery charge" message pops up. However, it disappears as soon as I apply a little throttle and the message does not come back until I switch off the engine and...
  2. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Morning All, I have to replace the alternator on my 2007 159 Sports wagon. I've tested for earth and for parasitic drain, but all signs point to it either being the alternator or the rectifier. Either was as it looks a massive pain I'm going to replace the whole thing. The issue is I've read...
  3. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hi Guys, Something peculiar happened today. While I was driving (nothing seemed wrong) I got the ABS lights on my dash. Something I know happens when voltage is low on the battery. A short while later (1 minute) my radio shut off. At this point I noticed the idle RPM went from 800 to about...
  4. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hey, On my Alfa GTV 2.0 TS (1996) my battery wasnt charging somehow. 1. Bought new battery (everything was the same) 2. Checked for alternator charging (easily 14.5V with max load (lights, radio..)) 3. Checked for battery current draw when car powered off (15mA) Nothing of these was the...
  5. Alfa Giulietta
    Hi, I'm Elod from Hungary and I need some help with my Giulietta My Giulietta makes some strange noises coming from the engine bay. I can hear it only at idle and low RPMs. It is a whining (bearing??) noise maybe. After I start it up it whines. If I turn on my seat heating, or turn on my...
  6. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hey everyone So, my alternators gone. Ordered a new one for Europarts for £120 (including cash back for the old one). Gone to eLearn , followed the instructions, Covers off, Fuel Filter out and then i got confused as to why I am being asked to remove the Oil Evap unit on the opposite side of...
  7. Alfa MiTo
    Hey guys, anyone got any experience with changing the alternator on a 1.4 MiTo? I really cannot get to the top bolt, the air con pump is in the way. Do I have to take the air con pump out, or drop the engine? I did automotive repair at college, so I know my way around a set of spanners but I'm...
  8. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Changed the alternator on my GT jtdm yesterday. I had a quick look on here before starting the job but I couldn't find much info. I took the alternator out from the top. As per Elearn. So It can be done. Would I do it that way again? No way. On a positive note the bleeding has stopped and my...
  9. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hi all. Can anyone help me please. I just changed the clutch on my Alfa 159, 1.8 Petrol, and when putting the drive shaft back in I noticed i'd pulled a couple of wires in the engine sensor tucked in behind the drive shaft bearing just beside the altenator. Can anyone shed any light as to what...
  10. Alfa Giulietta
    Hi, I had smoke coming out of the drivers side wiper area and then the battery logo in the MFD. As I suspected my alternator needs replacing, has anyone done this themselves? I'm hoping to DIY it.
  11. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi Every one, does anyone knows what the D+ alternator wire connected to ? ? as far as i understand it is connected to the battery light, is it connected to something else like the ECU ? can some one show me the wiring digram for what it is connected to start/end ? as i want to plug some...

  13. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all, I have been having a few issues with my 147 2.0L TS. I had a flat battery, turns out it was the alternator, so i got that replaced yesterday. Anyway i started it and the idle was ROUGH, it would occasionally drop 100rpm and then spring back up. Is this a common thing. Since getting the...
  14. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    A quick one, my alternator appears to be on its way out on my Brera 2.2JTS. Done a search of the topics and saw a few of you guys had bought the ones online and on eBay at £175, but there’s Bosch ones available at the moment with with a discount which takes them under £300. I’m thinking it’s...

  17. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    I've had an alternator failure at the weekend. Since delivering it to Gonellas in Catford they've quoted me £500 for the alternator and £550 +vat for labour, which in my view is taking the p..s. Does anyone know of a good mechanic ideally knowledgeable with alfas in SE London who can quote me...
  18. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    My alternator is fried, which I knew on purchase. Got it out easily enough, from the top. Does anyone know the difference between the various alternators fitted to these models? I expect that mechanically most alternators from a 2.0 TS would fit with possible differences in the output. Have...
  19. Alfa Giulietta
    The alternator has failed on our Giulietta. :grumpy: I have sourced a replacement and was wondering about the complexity of removal/fitting. Just how much needs to come off? It looks like the oil filter housing, driveshaft and track arm will have to come out, but does the engine need to be...
