    Always seems that something falls forward into the hinge whenever I open it and have to re-arrange stuff to get it closed. Anyone got a fix for this - stretch netting across opening??

    Hi all. Need to remove the glovebox on RHD car to access window relays behind there. Got as far as taking out the support straps and removing covers inside glovebox but I can't figure out how to move the pins behind the covers. Do they move inwards towards centre of glovebox or outwards? An...

  5. Dropping Glovebox

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi all, does any other spider owners suffer from their glovebox continually opening when the car goes over even the slightest bump. My car has done this since I bought it but now it wont stay shut for more than 10 seconds even with nothing in it. I know a small amount of scuttle shake is to be...
  6. Glovebox lever falling off soon!!!

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Guys, Need some advise. The glovebox lever/handle (chrome plate) has come loose and rattles like crazy now. It still functions, but there seems to be a lot of play when I move it around. Seems like it won't hold for long now and might just break off any moment. Before I do anything silly...

    I have a very bad rattle behind the dashboard of my 147 in the area behind the glovebox. Anyone know how easy it is to remove the glovebox, and if there is much access to the rear of the dashboard.
  9. What do you keep in your 147 glovebox?

    Because it's so small - all I can keep is a tyre pressure gauge and some hankies. What's in your glovebox?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi there, Just noticed this morning that the chrome bit of my glovebox handle has come loose. It's still attached but rattles around. Has anyone else had this problem? Is it easy to fix, or does the whole lid need replacing? (Had the car from new for about 18 months.) Thanks in advance, N.
  11. Cure for noisy 156 glovebox

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Anyone know how to sort this. The Glovebox has suddenly started to creak. Sounds like it is coming from the bottom of it. I read on dejanews about a spring getting loose along the hinge and moving from side to side. Can't see anything wrong though. Also, the rear parcel shelf is making a...
