    Hi, need some advice on the selespeed clutch adjustment on the 147. I have followed the guides on how to do this. However I see the following problem: 1. adjust the clutch to 28/28.5mm but 1 week later it reports the clutch distance to be 35mm 2. when the clutch travel is being reported as...

  3. Alfa MiTo
    Picked up my 12 plate 135 Mito on Monday and absolutely love it. I'm only 2 days in and getting to know it, but I noticed some interesting figures on the distance to empty over the last two days. Drove to work this morning and it's displaying 322 (14 miles on B roads and dual carriageways)...

    the N1 cameras came on on Monday, and from Town to Sir Lowry's Pass on the N2 if so i am in big trouble:cheese:
  5. Alfa Giulietta
    Just wondering the sorts of distances your Giulettas have covered. It would be interesting to hear how far your G has travelled, which engine it has and what issues you have had along the way and what we can expect along our ownership journey. Mine is a MY2013 black manual distinctive 1.4 TB...

    Does anyone know how to access this function? I know the display will flash a message on startup when it's 2,000km away but just wondering if there's a manual way of accessing this before the automatic 2,000km warning. Cheers, Russ
  7. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    I was wondering what long journeys other forum members had undertaken in their 159's. This June, my Wife, 2 children and I travelled from Chester to Frejus in the South of France. Including trips around the area (including one to Italy) the total distance travelled was 2,700 Miles. The car (a...
  8. Alfa GTA
    HI I am having a few issues with my Selespeed system. Can someone confirm what the clutch actuator position should be ? I have heard varying reports of it being 28mm (like the 2.0 Selespeed) and that it should auto adjust to 18 (!) mm. Mine does not seem to auto adjust, and is now at 32mm...

  10. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi, I've researched this topic a lot but I still have some questions. I know all the major tire manufacturers are recommending that all new tyres are fitted at the rear, however aren't they forgetting stopping distances and moving off? Ok when turning at high speed, the car won't over-steer...
  11. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi Guys Beginning of April me and the missus are off to scotland for a few days 800 mile round trip. Now me not being mechanically minded I was wondering if you thought it best to give my car a "health Check" and if so any suggestions on where to go? (manchester) It has a full service history...
  12. Alfa Giulietta
    Does anybody knows where the reciever is? I need to be very close to the car to open/close it. With my previous car u could use it from a 20m distance, now i need to be in 5 meters of the car.
  13. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Dropped my car off for servicing (at main AR dealer) yesterday with the distance-to-service indicator on the dash reading 0 miles - fine. Checked it this morning and it's reading 59 miles. How can this happen ? If they'd not reset it at all it would still be showing zero and if it had been reset...
  14. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I will start with the reading from the odometer(small display between the clocks), it show 100miles. display in the middle of the dash show 100km ( should be 160km). when I change units in menu it show 60miles where should be 100miles. from that computer calculate wrong fuel consumption...
  15. Engines (TS, JTS, JTD & V6)
    I'm on my way to build 2.0 engine for track purposes, using engine block from 1.8TS honed to 2.0 size, pistons and crankshaft also from 2.0TS. This combo is 15kg's lighter than standart 2.0, and when on track every kg counts. Problem is that with 2.0, crank position sensor touches crank's...
  16. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I'm toying with the idea of replacing the cambelt on my phase 2 T-spark Spider. The car has done 9,000 miles since the last change but 5 years have passed. I know it is now suggested that it should be replaced every 3 years in terms of time, but I am looking for opinions on this. With such a...
  17. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    My 159 Ti was at Western in Glasgow to get something checked out and they did notice that my front tyres needed replaced. Its something that I've been meaning to check for ages since all the hoo-ha on here about tyre wear and how expensive 19's are to re-shoe. Anyway, I've checked now and...

    Anyone know what distance in mm between the two mounting holes?
  19. Wales South
    If any of you are driving on the M4, careful around the Cardiff area. The M4 there is in bits, real bad roads, because the surface has big patches in it there are a lot of loose stones on the road and I was in the fast lane and a car in the middle lane threw up loose stones into the front of my...
