  1. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    It stops at half way down. The fuel level warning light comes on and it fills all the way back up. So one bit works. When I disconnect the sender the warning light comes on, but the gauge sits at half way. It shows just under full after 80 miles and then around a quarter after 180. Grounding...

    Putting the feelers out really. Anyone need good condition veloce half leather front and rear seats? I've found a leather set but would need to sell mine before splashing the cash out. :)
  3. The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Spider S2, in my other thread I've been changing a drive shaft seal but discovered that it was leaking because there is a big groove in the half shaft right over where the seal sits, so I'm in the market for a half shaft unless it can be repaired? - anyone? - thanks PS no idea how its lasted...

  5. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all, I've found a 147 06 plate with 57k on the clock, the only problem being that it only has service history up to 23.5k............ Would any of you experienced owners see this as a problem or would you take the plunge as long as the garage are prepared to service it and put a new cam...
  6. General Alfa Discussion
    Driving out of the country park car park it's a narrow road with thick trees either side and overhanging the road. Suddenly what appears to be a thick branch and a bunch of leaves fall down right onto the front of the car with a huge smack noise. :wow: Pulls up fearing the worst to find it's...

    Hi all, has anyone ever heard of a half shaft coming loose at the gearbox end? My son has a 3.2GT and after 2 engine overhauls and steering rack replacement by the same dealership the left side half shaft somehow came out of the gearbox when he took a sharp bend (full lock) in a parking garage...

  12. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Help required please. The twisty bit that holds the mirror in is loose and rattling. I'm worried there's a loose bolt inside and the whole thing will come off while driving. The service manual only covers removing the whole unit. Before taking it apart I wondered if there is anything I can do...

  14. Alfa MiTo
    Hi all, I have a bit of a conundrum so I thought to ask the forum experts. My '09 Mito's HRW is only working on the top six elements, but the dealer I bought the car from says that there's voltage to all of the elements. Has anybody else had a similar issue? Thanks
