    Hi all I am the proud new owner of a 56 plate 159 Q4 JTS 3.2V6 Sportwagon! Am I being thick or is there a way to release the boot from the outside without using the remote fob? I had thought the badge on the back would be a button but apparently not! (Boot opens fine via the fob and the...
  2. Alfa Giulietta
    It shows -2 degrees... But it is 2x degrees outside. It caused the AC is not cold enough.

    Apologies if this covers old ground here guys...... I have removed the door card from my SW to access the handle mechanism for lube/adjustment purposes (door wont open from outside) however, I cant seem to remove the inner aluminium panel from the door. Does anyone have any advice & or tips on...
  4. Alfa Giulietta
    I searched and found a few related posts but none with exactly the problem I was facing... external air temperature had been reading a bit higher every day. I know it’s Spring here but this was ridiculous - 34 one day, 43 the next, 51, and then finally over 60 degrees (C) as you see in photo 1...

    I am going to have the left hand side door repainted and would like to remove the door handle... Has anyone done this? I found the tiny locking bolt, but there seem to be something else that needs to be done before the handle comes off.

    Replaced thermistor and display now reading somewhere near (to within 1 to 1 1/2 degrees ). No new mirror or expensive stealer required - cost me £5 and half an hours time. Unfortunately had to buy a pack of 5 thermistors so if anyone wants to fix same problem, P.M. me and for £5 I'll supply...
  7. Alfa Giulia
    Has anyone noticed external noise, say from overtaking cars on motorways etc. I know people have commented on noisy wing mirrors, but this is more about either poor door seal seating or inadequate sealing. It's noisier that I'd expect and more so than my Giulietta - although the seals on the...
  8. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hi guys when I bought my Spider the chrome external door handle is slightly damaged, presumably from previous owner opening on to a wall or something, although I must confess not the easiest controlling the door opening with the grab handle so far forward but that's another design fault by *****...
  9. Alfa Giulietta
    A couple of faults that I am hoping people can help with. Any one had experience of replacing the external temp sensor (driver side wing mirror) in a 2011 Giulietta? It reports low (ice) temps intermittently, which causes the air con to roast the occupants. Also, the clock and trip meter re-zero...
  10. Alfa Giulietta
    Just wanted to share this with you all in case someone was having a similar problem. My external temperature sensor was showing really low temperatures (I am talking around freezing) and I know I am not in the Caribbean but......... Anyway, phoned AlfaTech in Huddersfield and he said it could...

    Anyone got an external audio DAC working under Android? I want to rig something to use a Samsung S6 with a radio/clock via a usb dock. Supposedly this is supported since Android 5.x

    My mum has one of these My Passport 500GB external memory drives, stores photos and stuff on it. She used it when her PC was running Windows 7, she since upgraded to Windows 10 and the My Passport now refuses to work. I have no clue what to do so any advice would be welcome. Thanks in...
  13. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Mine have a few light scratchs....has anyone used a metal polish such as Autosol to any effect in bringing the handles back to their former alloy glory?
  14. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all I have a bad tear in my external gearbox boot that sits over the gear selector. I can purchase a replacement but i did wonder how to replace it. Can it be done in situ ? do i need to take it apart to slide the boot on or can it just be slid on somehow ? have attached a pic of the part...
  15. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Having done a quick search on here there isn't much comment on decent external warranties available. Can anyone recommend a good'n. Due to pick up my new Alfa on Sunday and fancy the idea of having a warranty in place as a back up. The car is an 09 plate 159 Ti 1.9jtdm with 42k. I am going to...
  16. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Dear All, my outside temperature display went wild a couple of weeks ago. It was telling me that it was -10 degrees Celsius when it was actually warm and sunny. On starting the car it would show a sensible temperature and then drop like a stone. The result being that I always had an ice warning...
  17. Alfa Giulietta
    Is it possible to plug a large (2tb) external drive into the USB socket in the glove box to use as a source of endless music? If so, would it need to have any special formatting?
  18. Alfa MiTo
    Hi everyone. Hopefully if this is in the wrong place someone will relocate it for me. Thanks for your patience. Ive bought cheap and cheerful led strips from eBay to alter the appearance of my Mito. After successfully installing red leds to both front footwells i'm now trying to add white leds...
  19. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    The external temperature sender on my Brera has gone up the wall and is reading sub zero all the time. I have sourced a new sender on eBay for £10. Has anybody actually swapped out one of these sensors and if so, can you give me some pointers on stripping the mirror to gain access? Preferably...

    Got no joy on my previous thread. The external temperature sensor(the one that shows up on the display on the dash) is playing up on my 2010 MiTo. Occasionally, (although it seems to be getting more frequent now) it thinks it is ridiculously cold out like at least 10 degrees less than it is...
