  1. Emergency Warning Triangle

    Alfa Giulia
    Is anyone else having trouble with keeping the warning triangle attached to the bootlid? Mine seems to like to spend at least half of its time bouncing around the boot having, yet again, broken free of its chains!
  2. Hazard lights during emergency stop

    Alfa Giulietta
    Had to do an emergency stop last night. Been driving for too long and momentarily lost concentration! Fortunately, Brembos brought me to a halt in good time. When I stopped the hazards came on, at least the indicators in the car suggested they did, for a couple of seconds. Anyone else had...

  4. Emergency door lock

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Got to the bottom of why my lock does not work, the barrel itself is perfect but the housing is seized solid where it rotates to operate the mechanism on the latch. Anyone got a spare lock housing and the half moon clamp that secures it to the handle they would be willing to sell?

    Hi, I have the same problem as many where the Spiders roof will close to about 95% and then stops.

    Hi folks, I'm in a real pickle. Currently on holidays in Spain. I've managed to lock the key in my 159 Sportwagon. I used the "boot only" button on the key fob to get something out of the boot. I think I accidentally left the key in the groove between the car frame & the boot. Then I closed...

  20. Emergency Help - GTV Broken Down!

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Bella driving normally (2001 V6) when the engine cut out and won't restart. Turns over fine, but doesn't fire. The CODE and EOBD lights do not come at all during the starting sequence. It was the ECU fuse - and it keeps blowing intermittantly. Any help from those who know hugely appreciated.
