  1. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hi everyone Just fitted 20” 8C prodrive alloys onto the rear of my Brera with 19s on the front. Tyre size of 285/30/20 but unfortunately the rear ones are catching on my wheel arch every time I go over a big enough bump/pothole. I’ve bought some coil spring spacers to help prevent this...
  2. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hi, I have recently purchased a 159 TI 2.0 jtdn 2011. I have just noticed yesterday that when i open the boot the back left edge of the boot catches the back window rubber seal. Is this just a case of moving the hinge slightly forwards a few mm to miss catching the window seal?? Anyone had...
  3. Alfa Giulietta
    2.0 170BHP Occasionally the stop start function on my Giulietta doesn't restart the car first time (it doesnt instantly restart maybe 30% of the time), it will turn it over for a second or less then stop then immediately re-try successfully. Nothing to do with me being hesitant on the clutch or...

    Hi All, My RHD Brera is catching the window glass against the door will when opening the door. Is this a common problem? Is there adjustment to the door? Sent from my HTC 10 using Tapatalk
  5. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    So I picked up my 156 tonight. Before handing over the money I thoroughly looked the car over, under the bonnet etc and then drove the 20 miles home, the bonnet latched closed fine. Fast forward to getting home, opened the bonnet to top up the washer fluid however now the bonnet won't match...
  6. Alfa Giulietta
    Hi, just wondering if anyone has had this issue. I have a 60 plate giulietta and the passenger seat belt only stretches out for use about 3% of the time. When it's being pulled to be put around somebody, it keeps catching as though is being pulled to fast and triggering the catch. It started...
  7. Alfa Giulietta
    When I have 4 people in my car when I go over un even surface or over speed bumps slow I may add I hear a scraping noise I cant work out if its the mud flaps or a tray under the car.. anyone else experienced this?
  8. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Is this as common a problem as it appears to be? I'm on my second Spider and both car had or have this problem. I remember reading that some of the later Phase 2's have a central locking system that automatically drops the windows a couple of inches then raises them when you're in to achieve a...
  9. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Just been out for an hour and on return went to put something in the boot and it now catches on the roof -- sheesh If crimped the roof almost permanently and annoyingly took the edge off the paint all along the mating surfaces Now when I gingerly open it it catches ever so slightly so will...
  10. Alfa MiTo
    I didn't notice this until recently as I don't usually get in the passenger side but the back edge of the passenger window is catching on the vertical rubber sill causing it stick when opening the door. The window rather alarmingly judders and shakes open, which must be putting pressure on the...
  11. Alfa GTA
    Hi All, My GTA is still relativley new to me but ive caught the sump guard already a couple of times on what doesnt appear to be anything more than a small incline, it catches/grounds when going over the perimeter drain on to forecourt (slight drop and incline) at my local fuel station and it...

  13. Introduce Yourself
    Hi Guys :D Been trawling this forum for a few months now and found the site friendley and informative with great banter and a mind of information. Hopefully in time I will be able to contribute more. Never even driven an Alfa but have always had a soft spot for a sud from my early teens when...
  14. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    I've been lucky enough over the years to have owned some really nice cars but i still can't get over how much attention the Ti gets. Whether it's people stopping in their tracks as you drive by, others driving or onlookers inspecting the car when it's parked up it never ceases to amaze me even...
  15. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    The clutch pedal on my 147 seems to be catching on something when you let the pedal up. It happens in two places, not enough to stop the pdal returning, but annoying never the less. I've had a look in the foot well and there is nothing obvious down there, in fact the factory put so much white...
  16. Alfa 75, RZ, SZ
    Hi guys I'm building a fun/trackday 75 3.0v6. What a fantastic car it is already :inlove: I've been sorting a few things and am now onto this problem: When pulling away enthusiastically/hardish cornering/speed bumps and decelleration the propshaft is catching on the tunnel. I can't see where...
  17. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    As anyone had this problem? I've seen lots of threads about the rattle from the boot and the seal getting replaced and stuff but I think this is different. When I open the boot I get a swelching noise which sounds like the window sticking to the seal but when I looked closely it looks like the...
  18. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    The window on my driver's door clips the edge of the hood every time the door is opened or closed. This has now caused the material to tear slightly right in the corner. I believe the new JTS Spider has the feature that most modern convertibles have whereby the Window automatically drops half...
