    Hi, in my Alfa romeo GTV 1996 2.0 TS, there is sticky black color on center console ( should be rubber paint, that gets melted and then sticky). It leaves black color when touched and i really need to get rid of it.. Anybody has any solution I can do it easily at home (diy).. I have thought...

    Hello, I disassembled the center-console of my 916 GTV Series 1 for painting weeks ago. Today I started to put everything together again. One part did left over. I can't remember where it does belong. It is a small black plastic bracket (for cabling I think?): I put it together in a cup...
  3. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    My V6 has developed a knocking sound. To me it seems like it is coming from inside the dash and happens when I just start to move the car or if I accelerate lightly or brake a bit. It sounds like metal knocking on plastic or maybe two hard plastics knocking together. It's quite noticeable. It...

    Hi all new to the form looking for some help as above I’m hoping for a guide or some help on how to replace the radio for a double din I assume I need to remove the centre console and the trim around but the gear selector my car is a automatic so it’s a bit different than a Manuel when it...

    I've got a crack in my centre console on the 156. Anyone got a good spare one? Is it the same across the 156 range? Thanks

    Guys, This morning my Veloce went mad. The central console looped from reset to restart for 10 minutes. Then I had to park the car. We will see what happens when I go back to it later. Anyone else had that? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. The Classic Alfa Romeos
    If anyone is wanting to replace their veneer on their GTV 2000, then I have a laser cut file for the centre console which any good laser cutting shop should be able to deal with. I paid £10 for the cut, £10 for the veneer, much nicer than £60+ on CA / Alfaholics PM if you'd like me to send it...

    Have read a few threads on refurbing the phase 1 centre console. It seems as though brake fluid seems to be the best option to remove the old sticky rubberized paint. If I do use brake fluid, will isopropyl alcohol wipes be enough to remove all traces of brake fluid to ensure that the new paint...
  9. The Classic Alfa Romeos
    I have a 1986 Spider Quadrifoglio that recently had some work done on it. I noticed a black wire harness with a red/black wire and a male/female plug coming out of the center console. It is about 2 feet long. I also have the hardtop and the electrical cord for it is plugged in to the plug on the...

    If anyone is interested, my dad recently bought Giulia and he needed to remove center console. I told him to document center console removal, and the process of removal can be seen here: https://inkocraft.weebly.com/center-console-dismantling.html

    Long shot at a decent price I know. Got to do something about mine. Maybe a strip down and repaint in the summer.

    Not for me personally, as was looking for a replacement for my bit scratched aluminium gaitor surround, but for others who like the black. Finish looks rather good to me...

    It seems to be tricky, has anyone idea how to remove this element in PH2?
  15. Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hello all. I have just bought a 2010 TBi in the UK and brought it back to Ireland. I am more than delighted with it (thank you to whoever out there has kept the car for the last 8 years). The spec is even higher that I had looked for, in particular it has a media console instead of the standard...

    Anyone else got this? Just spent around 2 hours trying to clean off the gunk.

    We got in the car yesterday to find an alarm error message on dash (alarm not available) and no power at all to heating console, also the odometer is flashing. Everything was working the previous evening. The alarm doesn’t work on keyfob now either but keyfob does lock the car. Any ideas would...

    Hi Alfa Owners. Before you point me to previous boot button issues let me explain. The centre roof console on my Alfa 159 1.9 JTDM 2005 has stopped working. Light is still on but no function. Boot opens with fob ok. I tried resetting with holding down locking button for a few seconds then...
  19. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    So I had a rush of blood to the head yesterday and removed the centre console from my Ph1 in order to remove the gunky "soft touch" paint. As per a couple of posts here, nail varnish remover (ie acetone) worked a treat but has left the surface of the plastic with a white "bloom". I could prime...
