  1. Alfa Spider Roof woes

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi All, This is my first post so be gentle, even though this is my second alfa I think i just got lucky the first time. I own a 57 plate spider and have only had it for 2 months, but it seems to have developed a problem with the roof. I've looked at other forum posts which have been very...
  2. Window regulator clip replacements

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    A while ago I opened up the door panel to do some maintenance on the window as it felt a bit moveable.. The rubber gromit in the window hole had perished and the white plastic clip had snapped. I bodged a fix and it’s been ok but I’ve got some proper replacement rubber gromits. I’ve sourced some...
  3. Spider JTS electric roof advice

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hope it's okay to post this here, as there doesn't seem to be an appropriate heading for this model in the technical advice forum. I'm thinking of buying a 2008 JTS Spider (the 1997 916 finally needs to find an owner that has the skills to look after it better!) from a reputable dealer, but the...

  5. Brera passenger seat electric recline cable knackered

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi folks my passenger seat electric recline doesn't work on my 2009 Brera although the motor is still working. I believe a stretched/twisted cable may be to blame. Has anyone any photos or any detailed description on how to replace this as well as obtaining a new cable? I've had a look on here...

    Hello. I've a 916 spider phase 2 with roof problems surprise surprise. It is a consistent fault as will not open at all unless I use the buttons behind the seat now and put hood away manually. I can put hood up with the centre console button all the way to the 5th arc then just stops. ie...
  7. Yep - Another Electric Hood Problem

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Good evening folks, I've read as many threads as I could find but....... The rear left hand pin (passenger side) on the hood refuses to release. It happened once before a few weeks ago but eventually worked. It's not for shifting today. The drivers side pin releases but then it sounds like a...

  10. Electric window problem. Weird

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    So I have recently acquired a 916 spider to join my GTV and 159. It needs some tlc. I discovered last night that the passenger door window will not open using the passenger door switch. It works fine with drivers door switch, so the motor is fine. I swapped the door switch on the passenger...

  14. Electric Aerial Bracket

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi. Does anyone know if there's a bracket for the aerial to mount onto, on the inside of the rear quarter? Have bought a GTV with the aerial already removed, and an aftermarket one came with it but not installed. Comparing with the old one, it looks like it fastens in the same place, but...

    They reckon diesels will go on for another 20 years and Petrol 30 years: “A best assumption of 30 percent of electrified sales (battery-electric vehicles and plug-in hybrids) by 2025 means that at least 80 percent of our vehicles will have an internal combustion engine,” Klaus Froelich, BMW...
  16. 159 Electric Window Problem

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I have a problem with the driver's door electric window not working on a 159. All of the other windows are operating correctly. Firstly, I checked the obvious fuse, which was fine. So I started disassembling the door. With the door panel off and operating the window switch, you can hear the...
  17. What's stopping you buying an electric car?

    General Motoring Discussion
    Is it the high price of initial purchase? Is it concerns over range? Is it a lack of re-charging infrastructure when out & about? Is it unproven total cost of ownership? For me it is definitely the latter. I could stretch to a higher priced car if I felt it was a good long term purchase. I...
  18. Electric operated seats BRERA?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi I saw recently on a video review that the Brera have auto sliding forward seats however, I was wondering if that was standard as mine do not automatically slide forward when I push up the lever to allow passengers into the back

    General Alfa Discussion
    Hi everyone I’ve had an Alfa Gt 1.9 JTDM for the past 5 or so years. Started out in hell but after changing the battery to a more decent size and the turbo found that I had great fun. I recently fancied a change and have bought a new (to me) car. I haven’t yet sold the Alfa but was wondering...
  20. Electric Power Folding Mirrors Not Working?

    Alfa MiTo
    Hi Guys, My Mito's electric folding mirrors have never worked since I first bought the car used over a year ago. It's a 2011 170 Cloverleaf. It does have the button (Figure C in the manual) with a little mirror icon on it with a down arrow. Pushing it does absolutely nothing. Any ideas...
