  1. Boot Light/Door drop ****ing me off!

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    GT boot light not working. It did work when I got the car. When you open the boot the 'Boot Open' indicator comes on on the dash. I've tried two bulbs and even an new light module as the one in there was broken from prying the wrong end. I've tried spraying contact cleaner into the lock...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hello every one, I am facing a voltage drop issue with my 156 2.5 v6, the drop happens when i turn on the A/C, when the raditor fans start the voltage drop from 14 to 12,1 and with more load like all the lights on,radio,...etc the voltage drops to 11,9 this is driving me crazy, when there is no...
  3. Drop in air filter recommendation

    Alfa MiTo
    Dear all, I have just gotten a 1.4TB (114kw/ 155bhp). I like to have some sound on the turbo spool or oosh but not willing to have the one with open pod which is way too noisy and loud. Just something better than stock will be good. Will BMC or K&n be able to achieve that?

  5. 166 2.4 JTD rail pressure drop...

    Tuning & Upgrades
    Hi, everybody Can a problem in the injector be the cause of the pressure drop in the rail, or duration times over 1300 are the maximum of the R65 fuel pump? The car is 166 2.4 JTD 136 hp with 119 injectors. The pressure drops significantly when the fuel temperature is above 55 degrees.
  6. Starts up then revs gradually drop until the engine stalls

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi all! I've noticed a bit of a weird problem with my 2015 Giulietta Sprint (16.5k miles) - a couple of times now, upon starting the engine, the revs just won't remain stable and they will drop down after the car has started until it stalls. The first time this happened at the end of the day...

  8. Auto drop fail on one side only

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Possibly one for PKR.. I've noticed that the drivers side window on 2002 Gtv V6 has just ceased operation. Passenger side operates as expected. Drivers window works on the switch no problem. What are my first steps to fix this? Many thanks in advance
  9. GT Window drop - Window Nodes?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I've seen a few posts about his in here but most were back when it would get fixed under warranty. I have an '06 GT and the passenger window drop has a bad memory. I do the 'reset' hold and it works for a few days most then it completely forgets again. Old posts say may need to replace the...
  10. Meyle HD drop link failure?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Thought it was a good idea buying these late last year, fitted them front and rear. The front nearside has now failed. Anyone else had these fail on them? Not even a year out of them before failure! I believe that they have a guarantee on these so will try and get a new one under guarantee.

  12. GT Door open/window drop issue

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all. Did some work on the Gt at the weekend, and fixed a few things relatively easily, One I'm not so sure about is the operation of the passenger window. I've searched the forum for an answer but can't find one, so some help would be great :) At first the passenger window would only go...
  13. Front anti roll bar drop links, have I messed up?

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    The bar and links were off when I got it but when I offered it up and checked on the spider it all seemed pretty straight forward. Now it does go together but the bushes are really strained and distorted and it all seems out of line but I can't see what's wrong The trouble is everything was so...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Are GTA drop links the same as TS ?
  15. GT front drop links

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT

  18. Auto Window Drop / Door Open / Interior Light Switch

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Afternoon All, I've had an issue with the driver's side window on the Spider since last weekend. I had a quick look last night and greased up the latch but it's not helped. It seems that the switch within the door latch has broken / failed or is stuck slightly and this in turn means that the...
