  2. Wonky clock hands

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    On the Alfetta saloon there's an analogue clock in the middle of the instrument binnacle. I noticed yesterday that mine was set to the wrong time, so I pushed the button and turned it to set the hands. The minute hand turned, but the hour hand stayed pointing resolutely straight down, at the...
  3. Issues changing time on the clock

    Alfa MiTo
    Hey guys, Trying to change the time on the clock by following another post, however my menu only gives 4/5 options and none of them are for changing the time. Any idea where the option has gone? Thanks in advance George
  4. How easy is it to 'clock' a 159?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hello everyone, I'm new, hence the name :) Before I go any further, no, I'm not interested on how to do it. I am going to look at a 159 07 reg tomorrow. It's a good price, and it looks the part. Good condition etc. The problem is the MOT (yes I'm in England) history shows up a few red flags...

  6. Is 300k km on the clock too much for JTDs? (2.4 20v in particular)

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Found a FL 156 with this engine. 290k on the clock. Clutch, flywheel, belt etc replaced, suspension replaced for 3500e. Is it a better buy than a 1.9 16v with 140k but unknown service history for 2800e?
  7. �8k 166 with only 19k on the clock

    Alfa 164 & 166
    £8k 166 with only 19k on the clock If anyone fancies a 3.0 auto 166 with only 19k on the clock, have a look on eBay. Oh, you will need quite deep pockets though. Not just for the purchase price, but probably the work it will need as a result of such little use over the years!

  10. Help wanted: FTF Clock failure (& external temp sensor)

    Alfa Giulietta
    A couple of faults that I am hoping people can help with. Any one had experience of replacing the external temp sensor (driver side wing mirror) in a 2011 Giulietta? It reports low (ice) temps intermittently, which causes the air con to roast the occupants. Also, the clock and trip meter re-zero...

  12. Spider clock

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Following on from another clock question on here i have one about the spider clock in mine. It sort of loses time,a lot of it. Battery is brand new and the car is used often and all is well with the electrical systems it would appear. Is it an age thing? Do they all do that? Second...

  15. 147 clock Spring needed, anybody got one?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi, I'm pretty certain it's the clock Spring that's the culprit behind my indicators not self cancelling. Must be a bad connection in there. Has anybody got one that matched up with my part numbers? I've looked on eBay and can't find one that matches up, I'll contact the breakers tomorrow if...

  18. 916 GTV Desk clock project PH1

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Ive decided to make a spare set of ph1 dash clocks into a desk clock. First step has been to attach a 12v 1.5a power supply to run them off the mains. Next stage is to build an enclosure for them. I really like the familiarity.
  19. Clock Spring not working?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi guys, I'm think about purchasing another 147 (1.9 JTDM Lusso) and giving mine to my dad as he loves to reminisce the old days of being an Alfa owner when I visit. I found a good deal for the car but I have been told the airbag warning light has popped on and he has been told it is the...
