  1. V6 Spider ground clearance

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    What clearance have you got between engine/front pipes and ground? I've got flattened exhaust pipes and I'm thinking of fitting Wizard manifolds and front pipes. I Don't want the Wizard to be flattened as well. I've got 90mm from the sump with no persons aboard, std 16" wheels and tyres.
  2. Gearbox ECU ground

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    While battery reading at engine ECU is 14.1~2v the reading on gearbox computer is 13.5~6v (via MultiEcuScan) it’s a good .6v difference. MES says I meed to check ecu power & ground. How do i check the ground to gearbox (159 2.2 JTS Selespeed) ? I have cleaned earth from the gearbox casing to...

  4. Under bonnet scraping on ground, bent piece.

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all, i parked with the front over the gutter / path and when reversing it bent a piece / plate / cover of metal down somewhat so now if i got over a large hump or drop-off it scrapes loudly on the ground, do you have any idea what this plate / cover is for or if i can just take it to someone...
  5. New clutch now or run it to the ground?

    Alfa 164 & 166
    As I write this, I'm in Facebook chat communication with the Alfa guru here in Sofia, looking to get an indicative pricing for a clutch replacement for my car. It's basically no different from when I bought it last July but he told me then, just from the pedal pressure, that the clutch was...
  6. Rear wiper ground to a stop 159SW

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    The rear wiper has stopped half way through the wipe. The half wipe it managed was slow before it stopped so I couldn't see it being the fuse ( to be on the safe side I checked the fuse and all seems ok.) The washer still works but sadly the wiper doesn't move. I'm assuming its the motor and...
  7. Where is the cabin fusebox ground?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Dear readers, I cant seem to vind the cabin fusebox ground. Almost broke my neck looking. I have a LHD car.. help is welcome. Also I found the passengerside ground. In the footwell right in the middle of the car. Is this the only one?
  8. Is this rusted ground bolt the root cause of my electrical problems?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi, I have had some major electrical issues with my car (159 , 2010). The car would suddenly stop, got selevral warning messages on the dah; hill holder/abs/vehicle protection system not available... Then it would take several attemts to start it (it would not turn over at all.) The garage said...

  10. Looking for 159 dashboard cluster ground

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Dear Alfa drivers This is about my 2010 159 TB. Every now and then my whole dashboard cluster cuts out. All counters, windows, lighting, even the hazard lights (one of the famous Vehicle protection system failures). In short, everything that's fed with the thick red cable that plugs next to...
  11. The US sepc sheet and the ground clearance of Giulia QV

    Alfa Giulia
    I came across this spec sheet in another forum: http://chryslermedia.iconicweb.com/mediasite/specs/2017_AR_Giulia_Lineup_SPkdipcivmg6jhgogtmsf6pe3sa5.pdf The ground clearance for the QV model is 100mm. I am pretty sure that is less clearance than the 4C!

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I'm new to GTV ownership so please forgive me if the questions I'm about to asked have been asked over and over again! I bought an in between gtv 2.0ts, been told it's a mix between ph1 and ph2, I've done loads of cosmetic work new badges all round new door rubbers. The clutch went the other...

  15. Woo-hoo - going to the Alfa Proving Ground at Thruxton

    General Alfa Discussion
    http://www.alfaromeoprovingground.co.uk/ Has anyone else here been to one of these events? It sure sounds like a chuckle: hot laps around the circuit, driving the wheels off your chosen car... well, hopefully the wheels actually stay on, but you get my drift. Pun intended :-) I just hope it's...

  18. Radio pops and hisses when going over bumps - bad connection ?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi A new one for you. When I go over bumps and potholes on our wonderful roads, my stereo pops and hisses. It does this no matter if it is turned off or on. In fact sometimes, I can hear a faint hiss coming from the speakers constantly, until I turn the engine off. Even more, I think I have...
  19. ground clearance v6

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi All, In preparation for a good drive tomorrow, I've just been giving my v6 a once over. Had a look underneath and notice that the clearance between the exhaust from downpipes to the centre cats (cf3) is worryingly little. I've just had a set of alfaholics downpipes fitted, not sure if that...
  20. TIP - Gaining 25mm of ground clearance

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Gained 25mm of ground clearance by resetting the under tray. I losened the tray bolts then put a trolley jack in the middle. I pumped it up about 100mm then tightened all the fixings. When I let it down it settled at a higher point. From examining the seated bolts I can see it's the 3 at the...
