  1. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Anyone have their Spider roof deck sticking when I open at about 2 inches. Sometimes she lifts fine but most of the time sticks and I have to back it off an inch and try again then it works. Tried lubing all the hydraulic rams and lever pivots with teflon spray and it maybe helped a little
  2. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hi guys, I am in Melbourne, Australia and need some help please! Like so many other Brera Spider owners the softtop mechanics recently started to get sporadic. Most likely cause are the two flap motors either side, which I have ordered from the UK and received recently. I know for a fact that...

    so, the car is a 98 PH1 GTV... My O/H got stranded on a roundabout yesterday due to the clutch pedal going to the floor and staying there, after a spell the peal came back up and thanks to two very kind gents who assisted she drove the car home,and all seemed to be well, one of the guys thought...

    Did a search and couldn't find much. Do I need to remove the centre console to remove the head deck? It seems a little different to other cars I've removed head decks from with the basic tools. Cheers. Edit found guide. Disregard.

    hello boxers :) assembling new 1.7 16v engine with new 88mm oversized pistons, and noticed, right side pistons are a bit out of the block, piston 1 +0,1mm, piston 3 +0,2mm. (left side pistons are 0,0mm) piston 3 rod is from another engine, cause mine spun the bearings. so maybe the case is...

    Hi all My phase 2 GTV has the original tape deck and i am looking at a new head unit for obvious reasons! Going for Pioneer head unit, does anyone know if i will need a wiring harness or will this go straight in? i know i need a facia adpater, i guess Ebay is best for that as Halfords want...

    Hi guys. I want to keep the stock deck on my G, but change the sound. Probably add a sub, amp and tweeters. Maybe change the front speakers to splits as well. Is the stock deck good enough to run all this? Or would you recommend changing it? I really don't want to do that though because I...
  8. Alfa Giulietta
    Hi guys. I just received my guili and am very happy with it so far. However, there's one thing that im really disappointed with. The usb menu system is ridiculously complex. It takes forever just to get to a folder that you want. I had a sony deck on my previous car and it was easy to use and...

    I know it sounds retro, but the units are Nakamicki and sound great.I have had them in lots of cars but not for a while.I am putting them in a 147 03 vintage.I was wandering if the output to the speakers from the amp will go straight to speakers/tweeters or does it go through a crossover.I would...

    Hi Guys, I've done searches for double din, deck removal, deck upgrade, sound system, so on and so forth. Has anyone got a photo guide on how to remove the stock deck to replace with the double din fascia? Many thanks =) ~g33k84
  14. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Either manually or while using the raise/lower buttons between the seats. When the hood has stowed and the deck should lock in place. it fails to engage and pops back up a few inches. Likewise, when closing the hood it pops back up preventing the hood from closing further. Help - car open to the...
  15. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi all, Rather than hijack some existing threads relating to Spider hood issues I have a question that has been puzzling me. Why is it that when the rear deck fails to open or close on the switch as part of the normal raise / lowering process will it work when using the overide switch? If the...

    I want to have bluetooth installed into my car and the installer told me that if i want to have it connected to my cd player so the music will mute and sound will come from the speakers, ill need to get an INTEGRATED head unit. Not knowing what makes a headunit integrated, could someone please...

    Hi chaps! Just a quick one... I've searched the forums and found nothing to cover fitting 6x9s to the rear speaker outlets on the GTV! Anyone done it? I've managed to find a set of infinity 6x9s and now need to make them fit. Is it a good idea before I start rebuilding speaker mounts??

    I was coming back home form Aberdeeen today. Decided to route around my parents collection of talking books and found Mort by terry pratchett. Enjoyed listening to it. As I was overtaking tractors on the way down I found that there was a faint whine sound that started at 2,700 rpm under...

    Hi don't know if any1 can help but I recently bought some after-market rear deck speakers for in boot on 156 1999 model, but like a idiot never even checked originals until I got my new pioneers and basically there is not any speakers there, So there are no original bolts to bolt on the new...

    I have a G3 navigation deck purchased new, which worked perfectly running a Porsche PCM CD. I was forced to do this because it is the only mapping that works for North America. Then, I inserted a 2001 G3 German CD. The CD seems to have upgraded the firmware. Now, the PCM mapping does not work...
