  1. End of door handle fallen off

    Alfa MiTo
    The little triangle bit (key cap cover?) on the end of my passenger side door handle has fallen off of my 1.4TB Sportiva. I’m looking to sell in the next few weeks and so I need to refit it - does anyone know how easy it is to put back on, how to do it, and what the part number is? I know...
  2. Annoying - sidelight bulb fallen through into headlight housing

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    So I bought some LED sidelight bulbs to match my 6000k HID headlights. However... they were slightly wider than normal halogen bulbs and turns out when I tried to pull them out they have fallen through into the headlight housing on both sides... quite simply, this annoys me!
  3. Snow has fallen - all-season tyres pass muster (so far)

    Alfa 164 & 166
    We had nearly 24 hours of snow starting Monday night, about a foot of the stuff by the time it stopped. And today dawned sub-zero, so a mix of fresh/compacting snow and underlying ice. (Took me 10 minutes to scrape enough off to get mobile at 7.30 this morning.) To this point, my choice of an...
  4. Fallen for a beautiful pair of hips

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi all, I've been quiet for a few months. Nothing much to say. Sorry to hear you've given up on your G Ransom. And Romeo, really? A Tiguan? Says it all. MY Multiair is powering along nicely apart from a dash rattle occurring around 1500rpm. Everything else is fine except I've fallen in love or...
  5. Part fallen off under seat

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    On reaching home after dropping off rear seat passengers, I found this part in the rear footwell. Can't remember for sure whether it was behind driver or passenger, but I've taken its picture. It seems to be a cover for something, that clips in place - there are no signs of screws being torn...

  7. Door Window "Stopper" has fallen off!

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi chaps, nice evening for tinkering with the gtv and sort a couple of niggles out.... I thought. Driver's window goes up too far and rattles side to side a bit too much so read the guide on here for adjusting the stoppers. However nothing I tried made any difference and on digging a bit deeper...
  8. I've fallen in love again!!

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Over the last couple of months the EML kept making an apperance and then turning itself back off again. Eventually got it diagnosed that it was the timing chain slipping. Anyway the car went in yesterday and was reapired. Driving home..... Like a completely different car!! I think I'd got so...

  11. Parking Sensor Cover Fallen Off!

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hey peeps! As per title, one of the little discs that covers your parking sensors at the back of the GT seems to have come loose and fallen off somewhere, so now there's just a hole leading into the sensor itself. This means whenever I engage reverse, I get random beeping as the sensor's not...
  12. Swirl Flap connecting bar has fallen off!

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Just having a look round the engine bay this afternoon (mainly at all the rust!) following a trip to Leicester and back this morning and found the swirl flap connecting bar just lying on top of the engine! The car is running fine at the moment (although generally slower than i think it should...
  13. Brera mirror cover stolen / fallen off

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Not driven the Brera today & not noticed this until just know which leads me to believe in the former rather than the latter:mad: Two things - is the cover bit available? Anyone know of a red Brera breaking to avoid the need for paint? Pretty gutted:(
  14. How do you know if you have truly fallen in Love?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi guys. As I mentioned, i think I am in Love with a GT and tomorrow I will meet the owner and give it a test. It will be my first Alfa and naturally i was wondering, is there anything I should look for in particular that would give me a warning sign? The car seems very well looked after...

  16. Mito High Level Brake Light Fallen Off - Help!

    Alfa MiTo
    Hey all! My high level brake light cover has come off. It appears to have a red seal on it and I thought it might just be a matter of sticking it back on but I think that the seal must have to attach to the light unit itself somehow because the light itself doesn't seem to be attached to...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Just noticed that the car is missing the silver piece of trim that sits between the grille and front light cluster. I did hear a rattle and a knock earlier and thought I had just run over an discarded can or bottle. Anyway - anyone got any ideas where I can get a replacement part? Presumably...
