Whilst doing a few tidy up jobs on my '89 S3 Spider, found that there wasn't a rubber gaitor on the side of the bell housing where the release arm comes out; assumed that it had been mislaid by a former owner so ordered a new one from one of the usual specialists. However the shape of...
Hi. I have bought some nice new leather gaitors for my handbrake and gear lever for my phase 2 spider. Managed to do the handbrake one fairly easily and it looks fab, but am unsure how the silver console trim is connected to attempt the gear lever one. Frightened to lever too hard with a...
Well my lighting mods are complete. Now looking to change the gearstick gaitor. Been looking at the below for my etna black and black leather interior and wanted a red & black theme. I've seen the black ones with red stitching but i wanted maybe a touch more red. Then again the all red...

RH Steering Rack boot is split. Would like to replace it over next couple days. Are typical Universal rack boots suitable? In NZ it is usually expensive to get any OEM Alfa parts so if the universal version is going to be ok then that will be what i go for. Local parts shop (like...
As the title says, looking for a (good) handbrake gaitor frame for my P1 spider. Mine has broken (again) and has given up the ghost so on teh lookout for a new one.
Unless they are still available form a stealer? :cheese:
Anyone changed one before? ..Ive managed to change the gearstick gaitor but i have no idea how to change the handbrake gaitor !! before i go pulling and prizing things with a screwdriver any advice greatly appreciated!!
Just spent 30 minutes sewing a new gearlever gaiter to the gaiter holder.
I purchased it form a well known on-line auction site, £9.99 delivered. I did e-mail them first to confirm it would fit my 166, they said "we sell exact replacements", this means shape, size, holes for stitching...
Just a small query thats all. On my Sprint I have a leather type gaitor on the handbrake lever but most of the Sprints I have seen have a rubber gaitor on the lever. Was there a choice or was they all rubber? I quite like the leather one on there but I want to go for the original look.
The original Gear Lever Gaitor was looking decidedly Manky on my Bella, it had started to go pink :tut: in the creases for some reason and had started to wear through. Surprising at less than 15,000 miles.
Thought I would splash out on a replacement, dead easy to do, took 20 mins. And now the...
I have a black leather gaitor around the gearstick in my brera, which has a couple of worn areas on it, do you think these could be repaired with some shoe polish or something similar, or should I just buy a new complete gaitor? And if so where from, how much, and is it easy enough to...
