  1. Alfa Giulia
    Hi all, After its first service, the lovely people at Thames Motor Group in Slough (well been lovely to me so far) want my car back next to take the dashboard off. Picked up a rattle on the instrument cluster I mentioned before going in for the service. Rather painless so far but having the...
  2. Car Detailing
    Ok, so just tied Gyeons Wet Coat spray, firstly I was amazed at how quickly the spray adheres to the paint and the beading properties are best I’ve seen. Sadly, half way through washing my car the sun came out and I’m only assuming this has contributed to what now is a large amount of water...
  3. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    So, the GT I bought the other day has had its trip to the lads at Autolusso. I got it for a steal, but there are some issues with her. Potential Swirl flap problems too. I just wish the previous owner had that sorted when they recommended it in 2015! So, they’ll be taking the manifold off soon...
  4. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hi , Question from a new owner of a 3.2 Brera....I bought this particular car as it had had a full cam chain replacement (with all sprockets/guides etc) two years and 24,000 miles ago (now at 67,000), and has had oil changed three times since. On cold start-up it now has an almost diesel-like...
  5. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    I am starting to lose patience and money with my alfa 159, I love the car but I have owned it for 5 months and i have already replaced the timing chain and now I have noticed a whine form the gearbox, most notably in 5th. Can this be saved by changing the gear oil or has it gone too far? the...
  6. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi guys n gals. Firstly... it might have no relation to the fault but I had just done a service. When I changed the fuel filter there was some diesel spillage down the back of the engine... But... I did drive the car for a good half hour or more before the fault suddenly appeared. Now it's...
  7. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    My new car just keeps on giving! Autolusso have done a great job at giving the car a proper inspection, and unfortunately the sills need some work, someone had bodged it with filler in a previous life and been left to get worse. I'm after a proper reliable body shop or welder that knows these...
  8. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    I've never had single issue with my Q-TRONIC 2.4 JTDm 159 since I got it until last night. All of a sudden when driving my daughter home the battery warning indicator flashed up and remained on all the way home. I decided to give it the beans a few times to see if the alternator was lazy at...
  9. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi guys, well i knew it wouldnt last forever. did just over 2500 miles last week and now 6th gear has got a bad growl. it is worse on overrun when box is loaded up it is quiet. my question is to remove the gearbox will it come out through the engine bay or does it have to go down underneath, i...
  10. Alfa MiTo
    Evening all, Had a quick search of the forum and couldn't find anything about this, so it may just be me, but has anyone else had serious trouble connecting their iPhone via usb since iOS 11 came out? It started happening straight after I updated, I plug in the phone via official usb cable (09...
  11. Alfa Giulietta
    Hey, just wondering if anyone had or could point me in the right direction of a wiring diagram for the two rear looms for the boot lights etc, all wires have split on the driver side so no doubt they're almost shot on the left too, thanks in advance!
  12. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi, we seem to be the victim of the dreaded ABS/VDC errors seen by many people. Having trawled through many posts on the subject and tried to get an idea of whats wrong using diagnostics I am still no clearer as to what is causing it. I think we have a blown ABS unit, as this is the only thing...
  13. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hi guys New on here, just bought a Brera unfortunately my radio needs a code and the paperwork is missing from the owners pack. I know how to get the serial numbers just wandered if anyone could help with the code?
  14. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Or perhaps not..:cheeky: Never done an oil change before let alone one on a V6 and for the last 2 years I have always used a specialist. The horror stories I have read about it being in the worlds worst location, having to move or release pipes to get it out etc and plenty of grazed knuckles...
  15. Alfa Giulietta
    Unlocking the car i noticed the R/H side tail light not coming on. i stripped out the rubber sleeve at the top right of the hatch and found two broken wires, now a job for the weekend. With the limited model range that Alfa has to offer, the 20 year relationship is about to end. I can be arsed...
  16. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all, Trying to get some advice for replacing a dmf, now the predicament I'm in is that I want to convert to a solid flywheel without having to change my current clutch set up. Reason for this being the is a 156 2.4jtd 10v that has been remapped, so is now running a stage 3 clutch to deal...
  17. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Here is a salutary tale of wasted time and sore fingers, which I hope will prevent further grief for someone!! OK, so a couple of months ago, on the rare occasion of getting a valeter to clean my car instead of doing it myself, yes - you guessed it, he moved a seat when the ignition was on and...
  18. Alfa Giulietta
    Good evening peeps The rear wiper has stopped working on the G as of today.Can anyone confirm if it s the RH or LH Tailgate repair loom that I need to purchase in order to resolve this?Also has anyone used the aftermarket part/s available from shop4parts for this?Have used them in the past for...
  19. Alfa Giulietta
    Hi, had the Giulietta for about 9 months now. Most aspects of it have been great but the dashboard rattle seems to have gone supernova in the last few weeks, specifically the driver side panel next to the speaker when the door is closed. I've read stuff on here about other spots - behind the...
  20. South Africa
    My 159 is now the latest victim. Over the weekend when it was storming, I found the power steering pump sounding excessively noisy, making a slushy sound and feeling a bit rough. It has been okay ever since, but I'm taking the car in for verification today. Please wish me luck, I will be going...
