  1. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi all, Does anyone know what type of aluminum alloy was used to cast these heads? And if it is possible to weld this material? I have a cylinder head that has had the water pump impeller come loose from its shaft. It looks like it was still being driven and unfortunately has worn down the...

    Hi all, first post, and was wondering if someone could point me in the right direction or had any advice. I am going to change the head unit in my 2013 guilietta fitted with the standard bose stereo. The head unit doesn't connect to my phone to play tunes and this along with navigation is...

    Just received a barn find GTV with a CF2 3.0 motor and 130k on the clock. Before trying to start it, I removed the cam covers on both banks to inspect the cams, add some oil, and run a compression test... which revealed no compression at all on cylinders 1 and 6, with normal pressure on the...

    Hi, The aerial on my Guilietta needs replacing. Rather than replacing it with a standard aerial, is it possible to buy some kind of DAB receiver / aerial and use it with the standard head unit? I don't particularly want to install a double DIN.. Thanks Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk
  5. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I've recently "acquired" a slightly more featured H/U which is the same brand as the aftermarket one already in my Spider. I'm hoping for it to be a straight swap type job but I'd like to test it on the bench before finding it may have an issue. It powers up and scrolls through the menus okay...

    For the last 2 years I've been spending a couple of hours now and then trying to get the damn thing to work with the car. Original HU stopped working so I brought a direct replacement, sounds great radio, CD, steering controls all fine. Can I get audio from the car...no. USB, no sound. Connect...

    Hello all, My 2.4 159 ti head gasket is cracked. Can anyone suggest the best place to source a replacement? It’s a 59 plate auto, are the 2.4 heads the same throughout the model years? Any other cars that also have the same head (166 etc) Alternatively if anyone wants to buy an auto 159 ti...

    Hi all, Long time lurker, first time poster. I'm having a little (understatement) issue with my Alfa 159. A couple of weeks ago she overheated and blew the hose that goes from the thermostat area to the bulkhead - for cabin heating. Temperature only shot up to 130 for 20 seconds or so. After...

  13. Alfa Stelvio
    Starting to get pretty annoyed with water running out the bottom of the tailgate and landing on my head/back of my neck on the Stelvio when i put things in the boot. Was looking at it yesterday between storms and I think I can see the issue. The black strip that surrounds the bottom only has 3...

    The 2.0 TS engine I have ready to replace the damaged one has been sitting in the garage corner for some years now. Should not I consider replacing the head gasket as a matter of course? What degradation would the gaskets have suffered over time? Should I consider replacing anything else with...

    I just read this in a VW document “In Germany, the annual per capita CO2 emissions of 9.6 metric tons are twice the international average. In the EU climate package, the biggest emitter in Europe committed to its fellow EU member states to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by at least 40%...

  18. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Has anyone considered one of those cheap android head units? E.g. https://uk.gearbest.com/car-dvd-players/pp_009621258235.html?wid=1433363 Given the impracticality of sticking my phone to the windscreen (it would block a serious amount of vision) this seems like a neat sat nav come...

    Right you knowledgeable lot how on earth do I remove the rear head rests from my GTV. I’ve sold the interior but cannot get the head rests out! I’ve used all the swears in the book and threatened them with a hammer.

    Hi I posted a thread a few months back about a head noise I was experiencing and since then have had a few developments on the issue. This is a new thread because the question has changed, hope that's fine. Original post found here ...
