  1. 2003 156SW rear exterior door handle - fighting to replace it

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I've just replaced a damaged pin on one of the plastic rear door handles on my 156SW 20v and have seen posts here saying it's an easy job to fit these units. I have to say that's not been my experience at all, the (literal) sticking-point being that the unit sits under the big, thick rubber...

    Alfa GTA
    Hi, after 3 years without an Alfa, i’ve bought a 147 GTA. Absolutely love the car. Got a small problem, one of the bolts securing the handbrake handle has come loose and fallen out. To put a new bolt in does the exhaust and heat shield need to come off?
  7. Exterior Door Handle Lock Loose

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi, My Giulietta (2011) has always (whilst I have owned it) had a loose exterior door lock. It appears that the garage I bought it from a couple of years ago glued it to the door and the glue has stopped working. The handle and lock work s fine. Now it appears that the torx bolt (from what...
  8. Brera Driver's Seat Tilt Handle

    Unfortunately my 2.2 (2007 model) driver's seat tilt handle clip (the bit plastic fork that holds the wire in the handle) has snapped - the wire is still in situ. Has anyone got an idea where I can find a replacement handle as it seems Alfa no longer make them and the usual suppliers do not hold...
  9. Broken GT Interior Handle

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    The top of my handle is starting to be detached from the door card. I almost pulled off the handle today when closing my door but luckily the bottom tip of the handle is still attached. Any other GT owner experienced the same thing before? I assume this is going to be an easy fix?

  12. Drivers door handle

    Alfa Giulietta
    For some reason this morning when I sat in my car and went to open the front door from the inside, it would not open no matter what i did. It's opening fine from the outside, and all the other doors are unaffected. I think it may have just come unattached from the latch, but is there any way...

  14. I can see the cable - but not the handle?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi 2011 TBi - looking in the boot I can see a thick black cable close to and heading towards the boot catch mechanism. I assume that this is the manual boot release cable. I can find the cable again on the nearside rear if I push my hand behind the bottom of the rear seat back, but there is no...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I recently bought some little red led strips to act as external handle lights (they are low lumen for a nice subtle glow). I don't need to know how naff you think they might's my car! They were standard on my old BMW and I liked them...I also fitted them to my Jeep. It was easy on the...
