  1. I Fixed My Window - You Can Too!!!!!!

    Alfa 155
    I’ve only gone and cured it!!!!! This is how I have fixed the sticky window on my 2.0 16v. It will only really apply if your windows are sticky ie half inch at a time. Remove all the door trims etc as you have previously done. Take care with the demister duct, and hold the mirror when you...
  2. Speedo is Fixed !!!!

    Alfa 155
    Fixed the speedo last night !!!! Wahaay !!!! It was the little variable doodah that drives the speedo needle that was faulty. It has a bi-metallic (I think) strip which is coiled. As voltage is applied, it uncoils and moves the needle. Anyway, took the part out of the Silverstone :rolleyes...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Front suspension was creaking like a good 'un, especially in dry weather, even under light braking! Just had a new front anti-roll bar fitted under warranty...sorted! :D Give it a couple of weeks though and see if I'm still a happy bunny :rolleyes: . Also, I had a peculiar intermittent fault...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Had a handling problem for about a year after hitting a massive pothole - car was all over the place, getting wobbly after even small bumps/undulations in the road, steering to the left badly, etc. etc. Fixed by new front wishbones ... bushes were gone totally and there was play in them ...
  9. Fixed clutch noise

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I've been driving through London with an annoying 'springy graunch' on every clutch release. (every 2 minutes in London). Traced it to a micro switch acting on the clutch pedal. The noise was from the switch plunger rubbing the pedal arm. A liberal dollop of grease cured it. But why does the...
  10. 155 wipers fixed!

    Alfa 145 & 146
    My wiper arms finally gave up the ghost and refused to hold the blades in properly, resulting in a nice stripey windscreen in the rain! One quick trip to the local scrappy and a pair of Mk 3 Cavalier (late version) wiper arms later and I was ready to get fixed. A quick spray with some satin...

    Over the last 18 months my 156 has suffered from poor ride, knock from front right and vibration through the front of the car. After new shocks, tyres, alloys, front wishbones (at suggestion of N.Wales dealer), the problem was still there if a little improved. Anyways after Kender's suggestion...
  13. Dashboard buzz fixed

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    My 147 had an annoying buzz from the dashboard when I drive at 30mph. Turns out it wasn't the dash at all but the condensation sensor that hangs down behind the mirror. Took it off, took it apart, put it back together and now it's quiet! It's held on by a metal spring clip on the mirror...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    and after only month wink Yes indeed, if you look at this thread you'll see I lost my handbrake at 03/01/2003 and today finally it has been fixed. Stupid cable took one month to be delivered to the dealer... And the funny thing is: I was never upset about this delay. Does this make me a...

    Alfa 145 & 146
    Hi all, I'm sure it's been covered before but I have just tried the juddering wiper fix and it seems to have worked a treat. I can now turn the wipers straight on to intermittant without any juddering or stalling (even at minus god knows what this morning eek! ). For those who have not yet...
