hoping I'm not breaking any rules, as the site does not exist anymore. It seems alfa156.net has disappeared and the domain registration has lapsed.
I was a cross poster, posting in both forums, as I started there but I realised that there was a wealth of unique information here too...

had a problem where the rear glass hit the rollover bars behind the seats.

I have in mind to take off EGR valve and blocking the holes which are related with EGR but without the software EGR blocking.
The reason why I dont need software blocking is because I want to drive a car without EGR a certain number of...
So i was recently checked the car diagnostic and i have a closed loop sign on lambda sensor 1 checked on diagnostic as i could understood that one is first sensor from exhaust pipes, that one is even visible and reachable from top of the engine bay.

Not been on here for a while and noticed the Jenny Wren had been mentioned about a month or so ago.
Well it is well and truly shut and has been that way for the last 3 months (maybe a little longer).
Just cleaned out the boot in my 159, I used the boot open key on the keyring to open it, ie doors remained locked. after a couple of minutes I closed the boot and the alarm went off (my god it's loud!!).
Had to then use the door buttons to turn it off.
Any idea why this would happen?
My 159 has recently started showing driver door as open when its closed on the dash display. This is when driving, it affects nothing apart from valet light coming on. Locking etc is working fine.
Any idea where the sensor is for this and how to fix? I did forum search, but could really...
My local Alfa specialist Palmer and Phillips seems to have closed, such a shame as they were fantastic to me and my alfas (and fiat) over the last 15 years. I am still hoping they are on an extended holiday and will return soon. Does anyone have any information about what happened? -...
Spider 2008. Occasionally when going over a bump with the roof closed a wanting message will be displayed on the dash saying the roof closure sequence is not complete. The cure is to stop the car. Press the hood close button. It will then partly lower the windows complete the close sequence and...

Well, I'd be keen to hear Clive's view on this and I know mods have a job to do, but fwiw I thought that despite the supposedly 'asinine' comments on the closed thread, there had been a wide range of views, some healthy debate and a general acceptance that we were all doing ourselves down on the...
I downloaded dnecuscan but it's not the full version people talk about on here I need to calibrate my step motor so I need the full Alfadiag version. Where can I get it, can anyone send it to me or something
I have recently had a broken hood spar welded allowing me to use the powered hood for the first time in two years. (I was leaving it till I fixed my idling problem - no point in polishing a turd I thought)
It opens 100% fine. It closes all the way under power except:
The driver side 5th arc lock...
Evening all, I have a constant message that appears that my boot is open when its not and it also makes the hazards when i lock the car flash rapidly. Does anyone knot what it could be?? i cant seem to find a sensor/switch around the boot, could it be a fuse??
How pathetic that Edwards thread was closed, thus fringing on his and others freedom of speech.
Clearly this forum has become communistic in it's approach towards criticism of moderators actions.
Way to go moderators:thumbs: really democratic, NOT!!!:tut:
Like many I've spoken to outside of the...
Replacing the aerial today left the boot open went indoors to get myself a beer (not relevant I know) and a gust of wind blew the boot down only now when I close the boot the lock wont engage the lock operates with the key but that's it!
