    My '01 156 V6 has had the rev counter blown bulb circuit failure for years but last week just started showing both tail lights glowing dimly with the ignition off. A couple of evenings worth of my ham fisted soldering with new VND810 chips hasnt sorted it, possibly because I've caused more...

    Hi, today my spider 2.0 ts started to play up. It drove fine when poodling around on the small roads but when accelerating hard on an A road it started to jolt. The rev counter went from 3500 rpm to 0 and bounded back to normal again. It did this repeatedly but only while engine under fair bit...

    Hi all Strange one yesterday, my car was laid up for 3 days, away for work.

    The Speedo and rev counter cluster keep resetting and dropping to zero, the ABS, ASR and hand brake light come on, then the whole lot returns to normal. This happens when driving and when idle. Any ideas?
  8. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Howdy All, 3 questions I'm hoping the wisdom on here will answer easily... 1. Does anyone know where to get the top engine mount from, I cannot see any apart from PowerFlex bushes. If I go for these how difficult is it to get the old parts out? Do I need a press? Do the PowerFlex ones need a...
  9. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Guys, my rev counter chip for the rear lights failed, I then tried to fix it by putting another chip from a spare rev counter, but... buggered up the board. I can get a whole cluster from a facelift (red dials) for really cheap, will this work or is it modifyable? All the lights seemed to...

    Hi does anyone know where I can get the tiny bulbs, they look like christmas tree light bulbs? Both mine have blown and my local village garage cannot source them and I have looked on the internet without any success. It would be useful at night to know what speed I am doing. Thanks

  17. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Since July 2012, our GT has been seldom used, kept as a classic on the cusp & used only for fun, events & holidays:cool: It struck me that it must be due a service soon even though we haven't seen any "service due" dash warnings. I checked this evening & it says due in 6314 miles but on...

    My son has just bought 1996 LHD 3.0 v6 12v Spider - high mileage/ KMs, but in good nick and at a price he could afford for a v6 The Speedo/ rev counter unit was replaced when imported into the UK on 2009 (presumably to show miles per hour - speedo works fine, but the Rev counter seems to over...
