  1. No room for foot with Guilietta clutch pedal

    Alfa Giulietta
    Have been taking my wife round various dealers looking for a replacement to her 147 1.9JTDm. With the low down torque of a 150bhp this was always going to be difficult. After looking at the Astra, Leon and Focus I took her to the Alfa Dealer and we test drove the Giulietta. She was completely...
  2. Lack of clutch foot rest

    Alfa Giulietta
    Does it annoy you not having a clutch foot rest? Where do you rest your foot? Do you get used to it? I've been trying to imagine not having one in the current car (Leon) and I can't get my head round it.. although I'm sure my first car (Astra) never had one so it couldn't have bothered me much. :)
  3. Front Foot Mats

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Are the Foot Mats in the following picture original 159 mats? Im missing the original mats in my 159, and I think the deep pile mats in the picture add a little contrast to the interior.
  4. Water Ingress in rear foot wells of 164

    Alfa 164 & 166
    I opened up my 164 a couple of days ago and there was a pool of water in the nearside rear footwell. Before I start investigating has anyone else had this problem before? The front footwell has been similarly affected but not to such great extent. It also smells like a cat has died in it - and...
  5. Rear wash problem + clutch foot kick-plate + good garage

    Alfa MiTo
    Hi all two small problems solved. I took my Mito into Guest Alfa at Willenhall West Midlands today. The rear wash had stopped flowing a couple of weeks ago. They refitted the pipe onto the washer bottle, it had been pushed off, probably by the pump pressure when the pipe froze. They said...
  6. I think I've worked out why my foot slips off the pedal

    Alfa Giulietta
    I've had my G for a week now and although I've not clocked up many miles yet I'm VERY impressed so far and very glad I chose this car over an Audi or VW. :thumbs: I wasn't 100% sold on the styling from some angles at first, but it's grown on me it's amazing how many admiring looks you get when...

    Hello all, Here's my first post. I'm the owner of a 2003 147 TS Lusso of about 14 days. The honeymoon is still on! I'm a technical guy, i work as a distillery engineer, but have never laid a finger on a car, let alone an alfa. My car seems good enough at the moment (I negotiated a...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    The alloy pedals on my GT V6 need replaced the rubber inserts have worn away and its dangerous to use with some shoes. Where can I get replacements for a good price? Suggestions welcome... E-bay has some but they seem expensive! Cheers Stuart

  13. 166 wet foot well problem -any ideas?

    Alfa 164 & 166
    My carpet in the footwell the drivers side appears to be very wet with no obvious source. I think it has become wet from the underside out. There is no sign of any coolant, so I'm assuming the water has either come off the road or is from condensate from the air con. Thing is I don't really use...

    Hi I ordered a set of the original Alfa aluminium foot pedals from my local franchise, courtesey of Jason, they cost me £59.68 inclusive of my 10% AO Forum discount. When I got them home and inspected them, I found that they are identical, and I mean exactly the same, the whole shabang...

    does every alfa have one of these, was it an option, or is it just the ones i buy. 1st alfa- 03reg 147 jtd had one in the front and my latest - 00reg 166 super has one in the rear.

  20. Aluminium foot rest

    Alfa GTA
    Anyone fitted one to their GT ? I had the pedals for xmas and made a quick call to my dealer about the cost of the foot rest and found out they had one sat on the shelf which had been there for some time so i bagged a bargain :) So do you just fit it to the front of the existing plastic...
