    Alfa 164 & 166
    Hey guys, I am sure one of you will know the answer to this. Is there any difference at all in the dash glove box size from one 166 to another? Secondly - Just been quoted £300 labour to replace the heater matrix; does that sound about right? Thank you for your help. :)

It stays shut allday and when on the move it doesnt open and...

  20. 156 glovebox bulb

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Does anyone know what bulb this is? I can't find any details anywhere - the fitting etc is in EPER but not the bulb type.
