    I only have two subframe bolts to undo to release the subframe on my 156 TS. Will I also have to undo a ball joint to swing the suspension away on the O/S in order to lower the engine and gearbox?
  2. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Last couple of times I've started my GTV from cold (proper cold - a week of not being used), she's stalled pretty quickly - revs drop to near 0, injector light comes on, quits. If I hold some revs on with the accelerator pedal she settles down in a minute or two, though sometimes the injector...

    Good Morning Everyone, During the first 3 or 4 years of owning my 147 the temperature would be consistently at exactly 90deg (obviously once it gets up to it). However during the last few months I've noticed it is dropping and is currently stopping at around 86/87deg. I know this isn't much but...

    strange thing today, was playing music via bluetooth from my phone which was on the passenger seat and it was fine most of the day then started to stop all of a sudden midway through a track. navigation was on at same time, so i flicked back to media screen and it said no device detected, but...

    Are lease prices starting to fall again? Fleetprices seem to have some good figures on contract hire deals again. Much lower than when I looked in Jan. Best deals seem to be.... - Personal / Veloce / 6+35 10k Miles per year £357 inc VAT - Business / Speciale / 3+35 £270+VAT (might be a...
  6. Alfa Giulietta
    Hello all, got my G used. Amazing that it has just about all options bar Panroof, Radionav and..... Electric rear windows!! I guess in the UK the G doesn't come with non-electric windows, anyhow... Has anyone with wind down rear windows noticed that the window drops slightly on its own over...
  7. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi on my 1999 Gtv 916 the Windows are not Dropping when door open and closes which causes the passenger window to catch on the upper seal when the door is open/closed and I have to manually lower and close the window using the switches... I have a Donor car which the auto-drop worked fine but...
  8. Alfa Giulietta
    I've noticed something strange recently with my '14 Giulietta 1.6 JTDM When the car is idling, occasionally the revs drop dramatically to the point where the engine almost stalls (but never actually does) then quickly recovers back to normal. This is more annoying than anything because it...
  9. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    The Speedo and rev counter cluster keep resetting and dropping to zero, the ABS, ASR and hand brake light come on, then the whole lot returns to normal. This happens when driving and when idle. Any ideas?
  10. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Car is a 2.0 JTDM - sometimes i notice the clutch pedal drops an inch or so but if you lift the pedal with your foot it becomes normal again - tbh its been like this for about 5000 miles now and doesnt seem to be getting any worse but im driving the car to Spain in May so would like to sort if...
  11. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all, I'm a new 147 owner and have an odd issue. I get a battery low message while driving and the car will eventually shut down. If I put a tester onto my battery while idling it goes right up to 14v from 12v while off. However it will gradually drop by about 0.01v every 5 seconds The...

    Sounds easy enough.. In fact I remember it being quite easy.. Screw to remove under tray rounded off from someone previously attempting Snapped manifold bolt that now needs drilling out The whole middle exhaust has had to be removed because of rusted nuts Missed the 2 hidden bolts on sump...
  13. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    This has now happened twice. I had just written it off as "Alfa weirdness" the first time but I am concerned now. I locked the car normally, then hours later come back and both windows are fully down. The alarm didn't go off (why not) but lots of rain got in. What would cause this? What would...
  14. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi guys I have an Alfa Romeo 147 selespeed 2000 model. I have not had any problems with it until recently. The problems started when I hit a pothole with my left front wheel a few months ago. The car dropped into Neutral and I could not get it into gear. I got the assistance of a friend...

Is it likely to...
  16. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi guys, you've probably been asked this question loads of times but had a look and can't find the answer, so here goes. I bought the GT just about a month ago now, really happy with it except for one little niggle, sometimes whilst accelerating the revs will suddenly drop, I ease off the gas...
  17. Alfa MiTo
    I have noticed since having the car serviced last month that the coolant level has dropped from the maximum level just after the service to just above the minimum level today. I had the water pump replaced during the service and nothing else was mentioned (ie. potential leaks around the area)...
