  1. Winter is coming... Have they fixed the fuel cap and the demister yet?

    Alfa Giulia
    Hi all Its starting to get cold again. My fuel cap is showing signs of going wonky again, and the rear demister not working when the battery is 'low' is starting to be an issue. Anyone know if Alfa have fixed either of these since last year? Thanks
  2. I've fixed the locks...

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    I was talking to a master locksmith (he was sorting out the dodgy remote on my Land Rover) and I asked him about the worn-out locks on my Alfetta: the ignition lock took a lot of 'jiggling' to make the key turn and the door and boot locks were heading the same way. Perhaps not surprising on a 40...
  3. Strange electrical faults fixed

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    This applies to all 147s, 156s and GTs equally. Now the cars are older, it is quite common to experience multiple electrical faults which are due to the deterioration of electrical connections. Any car with strange faults should firstly have this attended to before looking any further. This is...
  4. Heater Blower Stopped Working - FIXED

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    So last week the blower fan stopped working, totally dead on all speed settings. Fuses were ok, I thought maybe its a resistor or something else but didn't want to go down the road of checking all that stuff without checking the actual fan, so I decided to take the fan out. For those that don't...
  5. QV water ingress ECU - DIY fixed (cost A$20)

    Alfa Giulia
    My newly purchased QV (1200km) had engine light and misfire issue last week. My dealer confirmed was due to water ingress ECU (I must have over washed my car) and replaced ECU under warranty. Car drives perfect now. Unfortunately Aus dealer haven’t received any recall notice on scuttle from...
  6. 3.0 / 2.0 Upper rear arms camber fixed

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Ok, This is the next observation from my tear down of the recently built suspension to fix issues. I know this has probably been gone over loads of times but I did find it difficult to get answers regarding the difference in the top arms between the 2.0 and 3.0 versions and probably answers...
  7. Brera 2.4 no electricity but fixed itself.

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi guys, so today I had a very odd experience. I’ve been on holiday and haven’t driven my Alfa Brera 2.4 56plate in about 3 weeks. Went to start it today and it fired up no problem, decided to fill the tank up so drove to the petrol station which is only a minute drive away. Filled her up but...
  8. Can this be fixed?

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    This decided to fall off the Spider yesterday. It looks like a pin has fallen out and I can’t find it. Is the pin meant to come out? If so has anyone got a spare? Or am I looking at needing a complete new latch and handle etc. Thanks in advance for your help.
  9. Gearbox whine fixed!

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    My Spider 2.2 came out of winter hibernation a few weeks ago and I could detect a very faint whine coming from the left side. I knew about Andy from A&S clutch tecnology in Halifax from searching and reading about his experience with the M32 gearbox. Some people on here have mentioned him...
  10. Giulia Dash rattle - chance of it getting fixed?

    Alfa Giulia
    Ok, so my car's gone in today to have an annoying rattle / buzzing noise from the driver's side dash sorted. It's pretty much a constant noise while the engine is running. It's only done 420 miles so far, and has rattled since 200 miles which if I'm honest is pretty damned disappointing. Since...
  11. 3.2 JTS ignition coil melting repeatedly - FIXED

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I decided to start a new thread with “FIXED” in the topic rather than posting this in the current 2 threads where the problem was originally discussed. Some of you may know that I have been experiencing number 4 ignition coil melting repeatedly on my 159 3.2 Q4 over a period of several months...

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Hi, all I hope I can help you with the experience I had with my alfa Romeo spider Veloce 2.0 litre 105 model in tipo. I searched on the net and asked in alfaclassics around the corner from me as the brakes were binding. They suggested the brake light switch which can go faulty, heat up the...

    According to ANE, in Germany they will be! BERLIN -- Owners of Volkswagen Group cars with rigged diesel engines in Germany including VW, Audi, Skoda and Seat models will have their vehicles de-registered if they refuse to get a software update, a magazine reported. VW has recalled about 11...
  14. The scruffy B-pillar problem fixed in 10mins

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    147's have a black crackle finish on the B-pillar that often looks shabby after a few years. Mine was OK on the nearside, but a right old mess on the driver's side - some of the finish had actually gone. Replacing or refinishing them wasn't going to be cheap, but I recently found some textured...

  20. Brera boot latch cover/flap - fixed

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    So when I bought the car i noticed the cover/flap which covers the hole where the boot latch sits, was broken. A pretty minor issue I'm sure you'll agree. But I'm guessing due to the poor design this is a common problem. I decided it needed fixing and it turned out to be a 20 minute job. So...
