    I'm sure someone on here will be able to tell me what the tiny illuminated green dial that appears on the dash of my 147 on starting signifies?
  3. The Classic Alfa Romeos
    I need to remove the glass in the 3 small dials (Oil, temp and fuel) for cleaning in my 1976 Spider S2 Can the bezels be opened at the front or do I need to remove the dials? - I think if I remove the radio and glovebox I can get to the rear of the dials Thanks

    Hi All, My new 156 2.5 has (presumably) dead bulbs behing the temperature gague. How easy is it to check and change the bulbs? Also how feasable is it to change the dials and binacle clocks? I much prefer the non-sport pack clocks! Cheers SD
  5. Alfa Giulietta
    Hi Guys, any suggestions? I have a 2010 Veloce which i love, recently the climate control dials that indicate what temperature is set on the driver side has gone out, the fans/heat/aircon all work fine and the temperature indicator on the passenger side comes on. Just wondered if there was a...

    I am having a very interesting problem with the voice dial system. If I dial a number with a different area code (USA based) other than my personal phone number directly through my phone or the on screen directory it will dial the full number correctly, including the area code. However, if I...

    During daylight I have no dial illumination without turning the lights on. I have it on the centre display panel which has been set to maximum using the control lever on the left. Is there a fuse or rheostat which controls the dial illumination only ?

    For historical reasons the Astra has basically the same cluster as the Giulietta, Mito, Corsa and Grande Punto!

    Afternoon all, So, after just two weeks out of the garage, my Spider is testing me once again. It started yesterday no problem but when I went to go out in it today, it wouldn't start. The dials on the dash light up as usual with the first turn of the key but I noticed that they exhibit some...

    Is there a way too permanently illuminate the speed- and revdials? The indicators are always illuminated, but the dials itself only when the headlights are on. But in daylight when only the DRL's are on and the sun is low in the sky the dials are hard to read. Could this be modified by the...

    I have noticed that some have white backed instrument dials and others black. Anyone know why this is. My 147 2.0 TS has black dials but I've seen others, that appear to be the same model with white dials :confused:

    Hi All, I have a 156 2.5 V6 Auto, which despite living in the UK & being a UK registered car, has a Speedo which peaks out at 260!? Now I believe this is a Metric Speedo, however there is a little black sticker inside the housing which says MPH!? Am I right in saying that the Electronics in...

    I have noticed that the temperature dial is either Hot or Cold there doesnt seem to be anything inbetween. Is something broken or is that the way it is ? Sometimes Id like some warm air not either hot or cold and turning the dial half way between hold or cold just doesnt seem to work.
