  1. Heated Seats - GQV LE

    Alfa Giulietta
    This is kind of a technical post so hopefully ok. I just wanted to mention that if anybody is interested in getting heated seats fitted to their G then Paul Mitchell of Car Connections (also known as The Only Way is Custom) is your man, if you happen to be in the right loacation. Based in...
  2. Does the Milano come with heated seats and heated steering wheel?

    Alfa Stelvio
    Can Milano owners confirm that their front seats and steering wheel are heated? I just bought a used Milano (delivery on Friday) and got a bit of a panic attack reading this Alfa brochure, where it shows that the Milano doesn't come with front heated seats and steering wheel (under the standard...
  3. 156 V6 over heated - now overheating after 5 mins

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Bugger. Driving in heavy, stop/start, traffic on the motorway last week our 1998 V6 156 just cut out - I hadn't noticed but the temp gauge had gone off scale. I assume that there is an ECU function that cuts the engine if it gets stupid hot. Turns out one of the heater hoses had sprung a leak...
  4. Heated air query

    Alfa 164 & 166
    Wondering if anyone can explain why I get heated air through the dashboard vents while the ICS climate system is switched off. It's obviously engine-heated air and is being pushed through by the car's forward movement, ie there's no flow while stationary. Is this normal or do I have a problem...
  5. Giulia QV - Heated Door Mirrors?

    Alfa Giulia
    Hi, I'm looking for info on, if the Giulia QV has heated door mirrors? I can't seem to find anything referring to this on this forum (but my searching isn't that great) nor in the Alfa product literature. If it does then mine don't seem to work, but before I complain wanted to check that this...
  6. Retrofit Heated Steering Wheel

    Alfa Giulia
    Good Evening, I am starting to really look for a QF and im taken by the sparco seats which i understand means no heated seats (although i have seen trim shops retrofit this, something to consider later). Back on topic coming from a Range Rover with heated steering wheel it gets used a lot up...
  7. Heated seats retrofit

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi, I'm trying to upgrade a few of the features on my other half's 147 1.6TS Collezione. I've purchased the bits to install cruise control, and the next one on the list is heated seats. The easiest method would be to buy a set of heated seats from another 147, however she has tan seats...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hello guys, i am driving a Crosswagon Q4 with factory fitted heated seats. At this age if course the heated seats were not working. And they still doesn’t work and this is the reason for the thread. First of all the fuse is ok, and the buttons are ok - the red bulb lights up. I came across one...
  10. Heated mirrors

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I have a question about the heated mirrors, the left side ( for me the driver side/ NL) is warming up fast but the passengers side isnt or very slow. So now i am asking myself if that is normal behaviour or not, do the mirrors using the same fuse or are they both on the same fuse. It could...
  11. Heated sears

    Alfa Giulietta
    Had my Giulietta now for a few weeks and love it. Came from a 156 and previously had a 147 so I’m used to Alfa quirks. Now my issue is the heated seats seem to work intermittently with no pattern to when they will or won’t come on. This morning on the way to work nothing or on the way home but...
  12. Heated seats

    Alfa Giulietta
    Anybody out there in th know. Somebody told me that it is far cheaper food say the seats production line to produce alll the same item than to say that ones for a car that does not have heated seats so Don’t put the coiling in.

  13. GT heated washer jets

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Found this via google search. The strange thing is I can not find them if I go to the parts world site for the GT or 147 parts. I have ordered two and it was accepted, let's wait and see. They are also cheaper than the...
  14. Heated seats no power at fuse

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all hoping someone can help. So I've got a 2005 147 jtdm lusso with factory fitted leather heated seats none of which are working. So obviously since neither work my first port of call was the fuse which looked fine but I replaced anyway. Still nothing so then I took the fuse out and checked...
  15. New heated seat switches

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Massive thanks to the guide on here. Both of my switches were broke and Alfa ones are about £30-£40 each. The am to the guide on here I fitted the RX8 switches which cost me £15 for both. Fitting was easy and didn't take long at all. Now both heated seats are fully working (not that it's needed...

  17. Heated seats WON'T turn off!

    Alfa Giulietta
    Newbie here with a Giulietta 1.4 that I've owned since new in Hong Kong. With summer now in full swing and temps above 32 degrees, my Alfa's heated front seat (driver's side) decided that now is the time to turn itself on, full nuclear power. No amount of fiddling with the 3 position dial will...
  18. Heated seat issue

    Alfa MiTo
    So my Mito decides that now is a good time for the driver's seat heating to stop working... button still lights up and the passenger side still works fine so unless they have separate fuses I'm assuming that is not the issue. Before I go groveling in the slush to have a look under the seat - any...
  19. Heated Seat Switches

    Alfa Giulietta
    Has anyone else had an issue with heated seat switches sticking down? Car is coming up to 3 years old and I'm about to fit my 4th replacement! Not sure if it's something I'm doing or poorly engineered.
