  1. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I was trying to manually adjust my headlight on my preFL 147, and the hexagon screw adjuster thing fell off and sadly I lost it. There is a hole in the headlight and in the first rain its going to get bad... Perhaps some other bit got lost too but my main concern is the hole. Does anyone know...

    I'm guessing it didn't like the sub-zero temps of late. I'm cleaning off the excess glue with nail varnish remover and a Stanley knife, any recommendations for re-attachment?

    Anyone seen this before? Dropping my son at school...pull up....go to open the drivers door...bye bye door! It was cartoon style funny. Top hinge pin sheared. Bottom hinge and check strap just about saved the door from hitting the floor and theres only minor paint damage to the door. Got it...

    The thing about the old 'low oil pressure' warning is that its not always a fault with the electronics. Sometimes it might actually be low oil pressure. In my case it is. The low pressure warning came on just as I entered B & Q car park (other diy merchants are available). OK , I'm 10 miles...

    I took my Girlfriends Dad to look at a new(er) car this saturday. A 1998 Volvo V70r. He is mad about Volvo's and is looking to replace his aging 850 estate. Apart from the hideous beige interiour, I actually quite liked the "Styling". The R trim really works on a volvo and the black suited...

    Hi, I got in my GT today and heard in clink, opened the door to find my door handle on the floor, seriously miffed as I had just returned from having 4 new tyres fitted. Can anyone recommend where to buy a replacement? Does anyone have any step by step instructions to remove the door casing and...

  10. Alfa GTA
    Got a pair of bottoms arms fitted about 3 weeks ago whilst having its MOT. In the subsequent time the suspension felt a bit knocky, and there were noises on turning and sometimes braking, but sounded a lot like the metal undertray noises you can sometimes get. Anyway, last night I was turning...

    Hi all, A simple job has turned into a nightmare. Trying to change the bulb the bronze metal clip has come off the headlamp which secures the bulb in place. I am currently trying to glue it in place, it clips back on but doesnt hold in position. No in the meantime there is a round kind of...

    After having my discs and pads changed in November, a rattle has appeared under the bonnet and slowly gotten worse. I couldn't find the source of it so have booked the car in for an inspection (and to stop my new brakes from squealing!) this weekend. Last night, while driving home from work, the...

    Yesterday I changed my cambelt, water pump, pulleys etc. put new air filter, new coolant in... started up, let it warm up to temp. everything was fine. Cool I thought, just a quick oil change and I'm done. Well this didn't happen, because as I removed the filter cartridge, and was messing...
  15. Introduce Yourself
    Hi, I just went to take off and prior to starting the car, I presse the clutch, however it just went down and remained down, a friend put in some fluid and managed to bring it to life, however he suspects that it is the slave cylinder. Has anyone encountered the same problem - only 3 years old...
  16. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    This story begins last week when I was all excited to go and purchase a GTV V6 from an Alfa enthusiast on the weekend. However Saturday quickly came after a half a dozen phone calls and messages I gave up trying to get in contact with the seller. Thank god no money had exchanged hands prior to...

    So here is my new issue... There was some knocking noise coming from the front middle of the car. I know that the rubber protection has been torn apart on the right inner CV joint, so I was assuming that the CV joint has finally gave up. It was a specific inner CV joint failure sound with the...

    Got to my 156 yesterday to find the rearview mirror in the footwell! :cry: Bought a sticky window pad from the petrol station - wouldn't stick. :cry: Bought an enormously expensive sticky window pad from Halfrauds - wouldn't stick. :cry: Tried a Loctite epoxy bonding thing - wouldn't stick...

    Was checking passenger headlamp for seal job tomorrow and I noticed that my side light was not working , it was also further set back than the driver side light. After much bending and bleeding knuckles I have managed somehow to allow the bulb to detach from the holder and fall inside the...
