The badges that are currently in-situ are the script type 'pininfarina' badge, but this script is preceded by...

I just bought a Giulietta Multiair TB, which was first registered in May 2014. The last owner appears to have serviced it...

    Hi everyone - I'm finally getting round to repairing the A/C on my car (blowing hot air since I first bought her and recycle function has been 'clicking') and need to source a heater flap motor / actuator.

  8. Correct battery for 166TS

    Alfa 164 & 166
    My 2005 166TS facelift neither passed nor failed our MOT equivalent on Wednesday The tester had to use his booster pack a couple of times and wasn't impressed. So he refunded me and asked me to re-book in the near future. The car has a 70 amp battery which I think is too small. Shouldn't it be...
  9. What are the correct glow plugs for 2.4 210 engine?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi everyone, Had a glow plug warning come up on the dash so picked up a new one from Alfa specialist, but there was some confusion as to what should be fitted in the 210 hp Ti engine. There are two different part numbers and if you lay the glow plugs side by side, there is 5mm difference in the...
  10. Correct values for 159 TI wheel alignment

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi all, I know the 159 TI is a notorious car for aligning the wheels properly. Last year I put some new tyres on both of my back rims, did a wheel alignment and now after a year they have odd wear! They seem to wear at the outside more than the inside and I suspect they were slightly aligned...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi, I need a replacement driveshaft for my 2011 159 2.0 JTDm , listed in Eper as 'Alfa Romeo X8 159 MY11(2010-2011)'. Eper lists 50519320 as the part number for this model but on ordering it I discovered it didn't fit as it had 27 spline teeth on the differential end whereas the old shaft has...
  12. Correct tyre rating for 159 TBi Ti?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    My 159 TBi Ti came out of the factory on 92Y rated tyres. The handbook says that Ti tyres should be 96Y, but doesn't specify the engine. Given that the curb weight of the 1750 is some 200kgs less than a 2.4 or 3.2 it doesn't seem unreasonable that it would have tyres with less stiff sidewalls...

    Hi all, My windshield got replaced lately due to a crack in the windshield. When I got the car back, I saw a little black piece of the plastic panel just beneath the wipers sticking out.

  16. Correct red fluid

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi guys, first time poster, long time lurker. I have got the dreaded steering grind/whine noise, leading me to believe (I hope) that I need to change the reservoir and fluid. My car is the 159 1.9 JTDM Lusso (07/08). It has 74,000 miles on the clock. Upon checking the fluid, it has the red...

    I did a search but couldnt find the exact answer. My 2.5 v6 speedo has stopped working, mileage still counting ok. Ive got a replacement speedo and that works but the mileage is way out. So I swapped the clock face with the needle motor over to the circuit board and lcd from my old correct...
  18. Correct A/C refilling amount (?!)

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Correct A/C refilling amount (460 g) Today in a pro-active maintenance mood. First I booked for an early MOT prolongation, no advisories :party: Then I asked to recharge the airconditioning as I reckoned that after 4 years of ownership some must have evaporated. No issues what-so-ever...

    Alfa Giulia
    The owner's manual of my March '17 Quadrifoglio recommends SELENIA DIGITEK 0W-40 which I have been using for oil changes and top ups. It appeared in this forum that a different viscosity rating is recommended for newer Quadrifoglios. I queried with fca customer care which oil I should use for...
