  5. Springs in soft top clamps

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    I have just noticed the remnants of 2 springs in each of the clamps that hold down the spider soft top. They have all long since broken and it's not obvious what function they had. Does anybody have clamps with the springs still operational? Is it worth the effort to renew them? Even if I can...

  9. OE hose clamps.

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    The person who decided to fit these to our cars needs shooting. Total waste of a morning trying to release them with a screwdriver. Looks like I'm going to have to remove the entire air intake just to get access to the heater matrix pipes. :mad: Rant over. Just having one of those days :)
  10. Hose Clamps

    Alfa MiTo
    I am losing coolant from the end of the hose @ the RHS of the engine (Mito 120) - you can see pink stains from the end of the hose. Unfortunately the hose clip does not have a screw adjuster & like everything else on Alfas looks as if a special tool is needed. It resembles a jubilee clip /...

  15. Alloy Hose Clamps

    Car Detailing
    I used to have some alloy hose clamps, (universal fitting) on my old S40 that had a hinged bracket and were drilled along the sides. They used to be available in Motorworld and looked really sweet against the black of the air intake. They were available in blue, red and silver. Hard to picture...
