I havent had a working stereo, A/C or Drivers Side Window work since I got the car. The stereo has always shown a CANBUS error so after reading a few threads on here I decided to get the parts needed to do a re-alignment.
Cables arrived today, I have bought the full version of the software.
Due to a couple of seemingly very keen no-shows & then me being away over the holiday period, this is still looking for a new home, and I'd quite like my drive back!
Estimate to collect for scrap is £204, which would be a shame. If you can do better than that, come and get it. Still...
Hello all, last week we bought a red R-reg Spider to replace my wife's car (green) Spider which is falling apart and not really worth dealing with. It will be disposed of soon. The new car was resprayed a few years ago and had lots of work done it in the last couple years by its ower nearby in...

Hi, I have diesel leaking from my engine (Brera 2.4 JTDM). I can see where the leak is coming from but I don't know what it is / how much it will cost to fix. Can anyone offer any wisdom?
When the engine is running I can see a small pool of diesel gather and it eventually bubbles.
Due to my carelessness my twinnie now sounds like a bag of spanners in a tumble dryer,I can't get classified section of the site to respond currently so I'm putting the details here. Refurbished 17" teledials fitted with 3 nearly new Firestone Firehawk tyres, one of the wheels has been kerbed...
I have had a surge in power at around 2000-2500 rpm in my 2.4jtdm Brera for the last couple of years and just lived with it. The other day I connected it up to MES and took it for a quick drive with the turbo boost being logged. Attached are the results.
As you can see, when I...
Any ideas gents? I've just installed an amp for my front speakers and after taking my foot off the accelerator the engine seemed to make a weird noise. Loose heat shield?
The noise has now gone but I'm still worried, what with it being an Alfa and all...
I'm having a problem with my turbo pressure, video link: https://www.dropbox.com/s/l3zzcfiabx9l9fz/VIDEO0049.mp4?dl=0
It happens with low revolutions and the pedal to the floor. As soon as the revs are above approx. 3000 r/min. the pressure stays at 1.5 bar.
I've cleaned the TMAP sensor...
I was just given the green light by the owner (my 60 yr old uncle) to restore or find someone who can restore his 2600 Sprint GT Bertone.
Here is how the car looked like in the 60s
and here is the car now... (Sad!)
I would appreciate if you could share info on...
After installing a new gear box (involving dismounting the engine) I have now noticed an instrument in the side of the engine next to the dip stick. There is a clear electrical connection point but no wire connected to it. (see attached photo's)
So the questions are;
What is it? (I...

Anyone taken off a GT strut before - This look wonky..
I have put a ruler through the centre....doesnt look bent, but not really accurate. Just does not look right?
After 3 long years of owning my GTV, I finally have a set of refurbished 17" Teledials on the car!!! So happy with the look of them. Four new Goodyear F1s too which feel nice and grippy and are surprisingly quiet compared to my old F1s! 16" Tear drops now in storage :-)
Also had cam belt change...
I recently had a new radiator installed into my Brera - garage have been excellent thus far. Drove it home circa 5 miles at city traffic pace that night, and the following night took it across town slowly again.

Any ideas appreciated. I really just want to be done with this once and for all:

New belt and tensioner kit for cambelt and aux belt.
