  1. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    My driver side door keyhole; the small flap inside; it doesn’t return anymore! I sprayed WD-40 inside to release any gunge build-up, then got a paper clip and bent the end into a small hook to pull it closed. It closed a bit but didn’t spring back. I’m wondering if this is fixable? I found a...
  2. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I have just collected a replacement plastic inlet manifold so that I can have it de-swirled and cleaned ready to do a quick swap for mine. It has had the flaps removed from the shafts but the shafts are still in place so can I just leave it as is or do I need to remove the shafts and replace...
  3. Alfa Stelvio
    Hi All, Went to fill up yesterday and noticed the fuel flap looked a bit misaligned, I've had a few occasions where it doesn't close on the first push as if it's not mating to the latch correctly, anyway, I found that the painted flap appears to be moving slightly from the big black plastic...
  4. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    My engine is in limp mode and would like to lock the swirl flaps. I have read about disconnecting the balljoint from the actuator arm. However it looks like that this is different for a 1.9 jtdm 16v. I cannot find this balljoint. All subjects are for the 2.4 engines. Is it possible to lock swirl...
  5. Alfa 164 & 166
    Hi The fuel filler flap release button on my 166 has decided to play silly bugger. The last few times I went to fill up it had to be “wiggled” a bit to release the flap and yesterday, outright refused to comply, so I had to tug the string in the boot. Has anyone fixed/tweaked the switch on...
  6. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hi all, another question I can't find the answer to. I plan on replacing the timing belt and removing the intake manifold to remove the swirl flaps. The car is a 2007 57 plate 159, 2.4 jtdm 20v 210hp. Registered 28th september 2007. My question is that I am unsure on the size of the plugs...
  7. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi, my GT 1.9 JTDm CF4 had a faulty thermostat when I bought it and I changed it after a couple of days (along with the oil cooler). I hadn't really driven the car other than very gently before I did the work as I was nervous of the corroded pipes to the oil cooler. I noticed afterwards that...
  8. Alfa GTA
    Anyone have one of these or know where I could get one? It's the front right but I'm sure there the same on either side.
  9. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Spider roof flap motor for sale, brand new - I am in South Africa but can probably ship to UK or USA - Is brand new and still at the dealer as I have not collected it - If you buy this so I can recoup some of my costs you will be helping out an Alfa owner. Update - The dealer ordered me a...
  10. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi everyone - I'm finally getting round to repairing the A/C on my car (blowing hot air since I first bought her and recycle function has been 'clicking') and need to source a heater flap motor / actuator. I've tried to find the exact part reference number via EPer but to no avail so far (I have...
  11. Alfa Giulia
    I know others have mentioned this as an issue but my fuel filler cap has warped out of shape and I was going to mention it to the dealer when I book in for the first annual service due September, giving them time to source a replacement before I take it in. However, while washing the car this...
  12. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    New Alfa Brera Spider 939 roof flap motor for sale The good news is that it is very easy to clean the POT in the electric flap motor. Mark the position of your flap hinge where it bolts on the deck, you need to do this because there is a lot of adjusting to do if you don't mark it. Just take...
  13. Alfa Giulietta
    Hi, Is there any way of tightening up the fuel filler flap on a 2011 Giulietta QV? Mine has quite a lot of up/down play which I'd like to sort if it's easy enough to do.. Thanks.
  14. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Next job on the 1.9 159 is to remove the swirl flaps, It has a plastic manifold so what is the diameter of the plugs i need or which kit have you used ? On a Alfa FB page someone bought a kit which turned out to be the wrong size and had to bodge it which i dont want to be in that position so...
  15. Alfa Giulia
    At last service the dealer noticed an error code on one headlamp unit - turns out the flap that opens for full beam (not a seperate bulb, just a flap that lets more light out) has failed. I hadn't noticed, as the lights are so damn bright anyway - best headlights I've had on any car. New...
  16. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider

  17. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    I know from various forums and having hunted around myself that Spider flap motors are out of stock everywhere - even Alfisti.net can't source any. And it doesn't look like there will be any new stock coming anytime soon - if ever. I have found an overseas supplier that has 5 in stock -...
