    Has anyone got a picture of the cubby hole, behind the seats, with the lid open..? I have the linings for my own, but they were in the boot when I bought the car. I've attempted to put them back in place, but they seem to look a bit "odd". Just sort of sitting in there, not very well fitted. Am...

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Can anyone tell me if their 'cubby hole' / lockable box behind the seats has any sort of liner or carpet? Seems a bit odd but mine is 'naked' with all the gubbins (electrics etc) on show.

  18. dash cubby hole needs assistance to open

    Alfa 164 & 166
    The cubby hole in the dash (to store sunglasses etc.) usually won't open unless I press the button and at the same time slightly lift the lid at the edge. Some times, if I'm lucky, it opens just by pressing the button. Is it a common problem? An easy fix?
