    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi there About a year or so ago, my car's turbo blew and was replaced by my local dealer. While they were doing this a little bit of oil was spilled onto the electric window buttons on the driver's side. The buttons were initially fine but have now become stiff. They are still usable and...

  8. Dummy buttons alfa 159

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    First time poster here so be gentle please. So I've just ordered a new double din car stereo to fit in my car. In the stereo you can assign your steering wheel controls however you want. For example you can make the "+ volume" change track instead. I do not have the blue and me system so some...
  9. Sticky Steering Wheel buttons

    Alfa Giulietta
    I have noticed that the stereo buttons on the steering wheel are very hard to press. Is this normal ? I seem to need a lot of pressure to press the button. Also I notice when changing radio stations I need to press it twice to get to the next station which is a little annoying.

  15. Menu Buttons

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    For the last couple of years I've had periodic problems with the menu button on the indicator stalk of my ten year old Brera. I would imagine this will become quite common place now many more 159 derivatives are reaching that age. The first couple of times I cured the problem by applying...

  20. Steering wheel buttons failing.

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    My 156 facelift steering wheel buttons are slowly dying. The first was the volume down button which occasionally wouldn't respond and is now dead. The volume up button decided to go on the blink and then died too. My car has an aftermarket Blaupunkt stereo and connects2 integrator for the...
