  1. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    After spending lots of time trying to locate the rattle at the back of my GT (inc securing the shelf which is the most common advice), I found the rattle to be the centre rear brake light unit. It was slightly away from the glass and would make this annoying rattle when going over roads that...
  2. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    HELLO FORUM, as the title says i just got my first car (alfa romeo 147 1.6 tspark 2005 in a sexy sexy light blue). It has some problems which i wasn't aware of until after the sale (i bought it last saturday). then there are some mods I would like to carry out on it and would like some advice...
  3. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    So the front driver side wheel on my Brera is warped. Doesn't cause too many issues as long as you keep blow 80mph. Once above 80 it starts causing lots of vibrations through the wheel...acts like a speed limiter in a way! But it makes me wonder could be causing more issues than just keeping me...
  4. Alfa Giulietta
    Morning all.. Looking at potentially getting a 2013 Giulietta Sportiva. To the previous owner's knowledge, the tailgate wiring looms have never been replaced. Had Alfa fixed the issue with the short wires by 2013, or is it something which I'll need to factor in? Pics of the wiring looms in...
  5. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I have recently acquired a '06 1.9 16v 147 TI and just recently the mileage and trip figures flash intermittently and I would like to stop it. I've already owned a 2 litre TS and a 2.4 156 and my wife had a 147 16v 1.9 and I seem to remember this happening to one of them, which was an easy fix...
  6. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Dear community, recently I had to face an issue on my Spider V6 (broken spindle on the roof bonnet motor), I was able to fix it also thanks to the indication that I found on this site. Here a link to the PDF procedure that I made (900 KB)...
  7. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Here's the original thread for a 156 TwinSpark whose problems are eerily similar to what I and a ton of fellow GTV owners have been having: Has anyone managed to implement this? I haven't found a similar wire in the GTV's instrument cluster wiring diagram, but perhaps a GTV-specific fix has...
  8. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi everyone. I'm a newbie member here but have used this site to guide me through the many repairs in my Alfa GT 1.9 JTD so thought I'd try and return the favour. One of the problems I've had that i haven't been able to find a solution to was the "Low battery charge" warning constantly beeping...
  9. Alfa 147, 156 & GT

But no I can't close my front windows, Alfa check display is dead, speedometer, odometer and fuel guage.. Everything is dead beside the engine, rear Windows and the radio. Any ideas...
  10. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I have a '97 Ph1, 916. It has an aftermarket Direct Electronics 3100 alarm on it. Car is parked up for winter. Battery went flat, I took out and recharged put back in and everything kicked off and I can't get the alarm to turn off. The blip thing doesn't turn it off for some reason and I can't...
  11. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Guys, my passenger window is acting up , keeps dropping and raising all on its own then it stays in the fully open position !! Is it possible for me to get the window back up and before it drops back down , if I remove the fuse (I'm assuming there is one for the windows) will that hold the...
  12. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    I’ve seen it plenty of times, but damned if I can find it in a thread. I want to put an extra lead from battery to engine, Grahameo gave advice as per in the attached photo, but the only possible lifting eye that a 30cm cable will reach to us what I’m pointing to in the other photo at the front...
  13. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hello guys, i am driving a Crosswagon Q4 with factory fitted heated seats. At this age if course the heated seats were not working. And they still doesn’t work and this is the reason for the thread. First of all the fuse is ok, and the buttons are ok - the red bulb lights up. I came across one...
  14. The Classic Alfa Romeos
    I was giving the GTV6 a once over, as it is coming up to MOT time. Just as I thought I was going to get away with no issues, the indicator light on the dash decided to turn solid green and when I moved the stalk, the indicators themselves were constantly lit on the relevant side. Just before I...
  15. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi. Im working on getting my newly acquired Spider into shape, although on a DIY budget. The front bumper is painted yellow, but the underlying plastic is black. This leads to some pretty visible black stone chips on the yellow paint. I have provided pictures. Im thinking of touching up the...
  16. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    As with many 159’s and Brera’s they suffer with ugly pitted or paint loss on the slam panels, here is my quick fix using some Blue Peter sticky back plastic!! The odd other spots I can paint.
  17. Alfa Giulietta
    Hi there someone bumped into my car and drove off. I took it to the garage and I was quoted altogether £926. I'm going for a 2nd opinion but in the meanwhile I've attached the images of the damage and quotation. Will I be really looking at these amounts to get this fixed.

  19. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I started a thread about 3 weeks ago about whether to fix my 156 Veloce or break it. http://www.alfaowner.com/Forum/general-alfa-discussion/210607-156-veloce-fix-or-break-opinions-please.html Apologies for not getting back to anyone but the Easter weekend was the first time I've had chance to...
