  1. Headlight H7 Bulb Spring

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Went to change one of my headlight bulbs the other day and found it was held in with a hair grip checked the other side and found it was held in with a cable tie! Neither bulbs were seated correctly and it does rather explain the dodgy dipped beam i was experiencing. The previous owner must have...
  2. headlight

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    on my full beam headlight, there's a cover over the bulb. this cover has fallen off and i've been told it's an mot failure. if i take the lights out, can you get into them from the back or are they a sealed unit and i'll have to buy another cluster from a scrappies. i'd hazzard a guess it's...
  3. Bi-Xenon headlight beams too dipped

    Alfa Giulia
    Stelvio owner here (posting on the Giulia forum as the Xenon lights are the same I believe). I've had the car for a week now but only tonight drove it in pitch black conditions in the countryside. I noticed that the Xenon head lights cast their beams too close to the car - basically too...
  4. Headlight bolts

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    It looks like somebody has removed the headlights from my 156 at some point by cutting or grinding off the top mounting bolts. Savages. The lights wobble a bit and the car has just failed its MOT on headlight aim, among a couple of other issues. Any ideas on how to fix this? The bolts are...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi everyone, I have a 156 GTA she's a real stunner except for one thing. The drivers side headlight (RHD) is dirty.. on the inside.. This is how I bought the car and has been irritating me since, I have tried everything to clean the inside but there is no way for me to get in there as the main...
  8. 166 headlight upgrade

    Alfa 164 & 166
    Hi all, New to Alfa ownership and this forum, so forgive me if this has been addressed before. Can anyone recommend a good headlight upgrade set up for an pre-facelift 166? From what I can ascertain on my car, a previous owner has replaced the xenons with halogen bulbs and they're very dim...
  9. S4 headlight on buzzer

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Some time ago, probably about 15 years, I disconnected the headlights on warning buzzer as it was a bit of a weedy annoying noise. I’d like to reconnect it but can’t relocate it! Anyone know whereabouts in the car it sits? It’s not in the relays on the fuse board...

  12. No light from Xenon headlight

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Anyone have had any experience with the xenon headlight going bad? It's not the bulb as I've just replaced it and it's still not working. Are there any other parts in a xenon unit that wear down and need replacing every so often? Or is each headlights on a separate fuse and should I check the...
  13. Headlight converters Giulia Veloce

    Alfa Giulia
    So taking her for a bit of a lengthy road trip soon (all the way to Hungary for the F1 no less). Please forgive if a silly question. But as I have xenons do I need to have the headlight converters stuck on? Had them for my GT a few years back but they did leave a nice faint ring that nothing...
  14. Xenon headlight blinking and finally wasted

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi I'm opening this post to get some help and also to collect information from various sources to help upcoming forumers. My 2004 156 Ti has OEM Xenon headlights. The previous owner put a metal plate underneath the car that "pushes" (let's rather say it even bends...:disappointed: ) the linkage...
  15. Alfa Romeo Brera front bumper chrome trims and headlight washers

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hey guys, I had the unfortune to hit a guy that suddenly stopped in front of me and lost my right chrome trim on the front bumper (right next to the headlights) and somehow one of the headlights' washers fell apart but without any significant damage to the bumper itself. Could you please tell...
  16. Sidelight bulb stuck in headlight assembly

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Was replacing a sidelight LED bulb yesterday when it got stuck in the actual groove where it’s supposed to sit, and the plastic handle where it should connect came off. The bulb itself was the wrong size I think anyway, too wide. So the led bulb got stuck itself, and after trying to remove it...
  17. Headlight Unit

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi, I'm having real trouble trying to get the correct headlight (PN 50520226) which is the N/S Titanium Xenon unit. Does anyone know if my Xenon internals will fit any of the Titanium N/S units? Can I just swap them? Thanks Ian
  18. Headlight foam template

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    After I had quite a few requests about the headlight foams I had on my give away bits I drew a template so that people can re-create them. Here's the template. It's slightly bigger than A4, unfortunately. Now material wise I am pretty sure they're simply made off a generic closed cell foam...
  19. Headlight glass broken

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hello everyone, I have recently upgraded from a Mito cloverleaf to a Giulietta cloverleaf, and it is great. Just a month in and I've had a piece of debris hit my NS headlight and it has cracked the 'glass'. Does anyone know it is possible to get the headlight glass as the headlight assembly (Bi...
