  1. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi! I only had two first electric windows from the factory. There were 4 new doors on the car due to rust (they are all electric), so the cable whip in the doors also came with them. Since it didn’t work by default, it was resolved that both work from their own switch on their door, but they...

    Hi all, I am new at the forum, but I’ll cut the to chase. My 2012 Mito 1.3 jtdm 85 has suddenly broken down and won’t turn on. It felt like the battery at first, but there were no signs of it and now all warning lights on the dashboard blink randomly (or not), including the headlights. It dosnt...
  3. 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...
  4. 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...
  5. 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...

  7. 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...
  8. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    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...
  9. 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...

    A couple of days ago a swine slashed the roof of my beloved Floozy (2005 Spider Lusso) Does anyone have guidance on how to replace the fabric roof (electric)? Can anyone recommend a good supplier of fabric roof? Thanks David :grumpy:

  12. 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...

  16. 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...
  18. 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...

    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...
  20. 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
