  1. Headlight H7 Bulb Spring

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Went to change one of my headlight bulbs the other day and found it was held in with a hair grip checked the other side and found it was held in with a cable tie! Neither bulbs were seated correctly and it does rather explain the dodgy dipped beam i was experiencing. The previous owner must have...

    Hi there, I'm looking for the part no for the plastic tool that comes with the car to remove the cap of the front indicator bulb holder. It looks like a mini wrench with a star drive end.

  4. Mito bi-xenon D1S bulb change

    Alfa MiTo
    Hi all, I feel that the hid bulbs in my mito have started to lose their punch, a common problem with gas discharge lamps as they age. I have bought some osram nightbreaker replacements, however I had a quick look yesterday and cannot work out how the originals are removed. I've tried a pull...

  7. Bayonet bulb won’t budge

    General Motoring Discussion
    Last October, a front sidelight bulb stopped working. No problem. Popped to Halfords, and swapped out the blown one with a new one. Simple slide in, twist, job jobbed. Now, that bulb had blown again. No problem. Except there is. Do you think I can shift the bulb? I should be able to push it...

  9. Sidelight bulb stuck in headlight assembly

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Was replacing a sidelight LED bulb yesterday when it got stuck in the actual groove where it’s supposed to sit, and the plastic handle where it should connect came off. The bulb itself was the wrong size I think anyway, too wide. So the led bulb got stuck itself, and after trying to remove it...
  10. Indicator fault? Bulb failure light?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi there, I have a 2006 Brera and today the I got an orange 'bulb' failure' light on the information panel, accompanied by fast clicking sound when indicating. Also had a 'replace front left bulb' message popping up. Trouble is, that ALL indicators (and the other bulbs) are working perfectly...
  11. 159 - Replaced dud battery and diagonal indicators now don't work

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    'Diagonal?' Let me explain... When I replaced the battery, the front left and rear right indicators stopped working, but there is no warning on the dash, and the indicators don't flash rapidly when put on so unless you can check externally you wouldn't know. The side indicators and front right...
  12. Bulb Gone - no warning message?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Another bulb Q - Noticed today that my drivers side dipped beam isn’t working but strangely got no warning message like you usually do. Could this mean something other than a blown bulb? Surely not a fuse as it wouldn’t be one bulb. Maybe a loose connection but expect that would still...

  14. 159 indicator/side light bulb not working as it should

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    My near side indicator indicates without a problem but the bulb doesn't light when the side lights are switched on - I've replaced the bulb and that's made no difference, so I'd appreciate any ideas about how to fix that.
  15. Osram bulb review.

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    So...when I fixed the bad connection to my right side low beam the other night I noticed that my car was fitted with some cheap, no name Chinese H7s. My headlights are ok...but with bulbs like that I felt there was room for improvement. Well if you are going to change your bulbs you read the...

  19. Rear fog light bulb holder removal

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi guys! I searched through the whole internet for this, but I couldn't find any answers. How do you remove the fog light bulb holder, the one with the O ring? Mine is badly corroded and I'd like to swap it out. There's a plastic clip kind of thing holding it in, it looks like I need to lift it...
  20. Courtesey light bulb

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Has anyone replaced the small bulb holder/bulb that illuminates [badly] the switches in the courtesy light with a LED bulb? If so what number/type. The handbook does not give any details so I suppose Alfa never expected them to fail.....
