glovebox

  1. Glovebox light on permanently

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    For sometime I've been concerned that the battery seems to discharge too quickly when the car isn't driven for a day or two despite the battery being in good condition. This morning I noticed that the glovebox light was on, so when I got home from work I investigated further and found that it...
  2. Remove the glovebox.

    Alfa MiTo
    Hi, I think I need to remove my glovebox, when I open it the box just crashes open instead of nicely floating down, there is a piece of cord hanging off at the top back of the box so I’m guessing this is part of the “damper”, any ideas welcome.
  3. 1.9 Whistling behind glovebox

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Afternoon all, this issue is really starting to get on my nerves now, basically if I try and accelerate over 50% throttle, I get this annoying whistling coming from behind the glovebox (which changes tone as soon as the throttle position changes). For the life of me, I cannot find anything...
  4. Glovebox removal

    Alfa Giulietta
    Help! Am I missing something? I did do a search and found reference to removing all screws inc the two big screws next to the aux/USB port. So I removed those and the three T25 screws along the top rim. Am I missing anymore because I can't see any I was slowly resorting to forcing stuff before...
  5. Glovebox hinge

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hey guys, it looks like my glovebox has snapped a hinge, it can still open/close fine although the door wobbles around now on bumpy roads and doesn't sit right when closed, I want to fix it up before the other side comes off too then i'll be stuck with an open glovebox with the light always on...
  6. Cable routing to glovebox

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Afternoon guys, I've just bought a box from eBay for the 147 that emulates a CD changer, but has capability to play from USB, SD and aux. Now the box works perfectly with the standard head unit, but I'm at a loss how to route the cable and box. Any advise on how to locate this in the...
  7. Glovebox won't open

    Alfa Giulietta
    Went to open the glovebox a couple of days ago and wouldn't open. Seems to me the catch has broken. Has anyone had this happen to there's as I'm going to have a look at fixing it tomorrow.
  8. Marks on GT glovebox

    Car Detailing
    Hi. Does anyone have any tips for removing marks and scuffs from the glovebox door on my GT? It's that sort of brushed finish plastic that scuffs really easily. The Mrs tends to throw her handbag down there much to my dismay and there are a few scuff marks. Normal interior cleaner doesn't...
  9. how to remove glovebox & gearshift panels

    Alfa Giulietta
    Tried searching on the forum but couldn't find what I wanted (maybe searching the wrong way). Can anyone help with what I have to look out for [screws & plastic clips] when removing the Giulietta glovebox & central side panels where the DNA selector / cigarette lighter is located. I'm trying to...
  10. Alfa GT CD Changer Emulator Installation

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hello everyone, I have an Alfa GT 2006 with a Nav+ head unit. I plan on installing a CD Changer Emulator. I know that it is a simple connection to the CD Changer port on the back of the unit. My question is with the installation of the box itself in the glovebox. How do I access the glovebox...
  11. Fascia glovebox screw - any rhyme or reason to fitment

    Alfa Giulietta
    I know some Giuliettas have a screw fitted through the top of the glove box to hold the fascia in place; is this fitted randomly or was there a changeover point on model year?
  12. Glovebox won't open

    Alfa Giulietta
    My son put his Ipad into the glovebox and shut it. Now it won't open - the latch is all floppy. Car is out of warranty (2010)...I've rung the local dealer who said as it was Christmas they only had one engineer in and promised to ring back...they didn't. Is there a way I can force it open -...
  13. Knocking noise from behind glovebox

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    On the drive home from work tonight I heard a knocking sound that goes off every second or so when the ingnition is on or the engine is running. Sounds kind of like the central locking but don't think it is, seems to be coming from between the glovebox and engine. Will have a look tomorrow but...
  14. Alfa GT Glovebox Handle

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    How easy is it to change just the chrome handle on the Glove box as it seems to be a sealed unit or do you have to change the whole glove box because that seems a bit of a pain.

    Alfa Giulietta

  16. Chilled glovebox?

    Alfa MiTo
    Does any model have or is there an option of a chilled glovebox ( using the aircon system )? If so, how well does it work and has anyone done a retrofit?
  17. Disconnecting boot opening switch in glovebox

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Simply opening my glove-box pings the boot release. Annoying if you are on the move and irritating if you forget to close as the alarm goes off. :mad: It might be a case of adjustment, but I thought I'd just disconnect and use the key for the odd occasion when I might use the boot. Still a...
  18. What's in your glovebox ?

    General Motoring Discussion
    There's a thread about the two holes revealed on the depths of the Giulietta glovebox after the wine rack is removed . How often do you look in your glovebox? Is there a best finished glovebox Alfa should have benchmarked?
  19. Glovebox door

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I realise there should be a thread on this somewhere, but I've failed to find it. For some reason one of the two springs in the hinge mechanism of the glovebox door of my facelift interior 156 is flapping about loose instead of being under compression. I assume I need to remove the door and...
  20. Routing a auxiliary cable!

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Really wanted a aux in port on my Brera for sometime so I just purchased, this http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Fiat-Grande-Punto-Alfa-159-car-stereo-aux-input-adaptor-for-3-5mm-iPod-iPhone-/111040540949?pt=UK_In_Car_Technology&hash=item19da883115 I know how to connect it to the back of the HU, but...
