    Hello! The hinge has broken on the passenger side of my 147 GTA, so I need to replace the handle.

    Hi, Next thing to deal with is the height of the bonnet on passenger side by the hinge windscreen area. If you compare to driver side where the red arrow (Bonnet is higher) is on the attached image it higher than the wing side (green arrow). Is there anyway to drop this by undoing the hinge...

    Has anyone had to replace the hinge in the door handle yet? Ive been told by EB Spares that its possible to make the 06 replacement/repair hinge fit an 05 handle (apparently a bit of filing is needed??) I'd rather pay £8 for the hinge than £100 odd for a new handle :thumbup:

    Hi my 2011 G Lusso has a clinky sounding brake pedal.. It's not noticeable most of the time, it feels loose, and sometimes I get a metallic loose clink sound when I release the pedal. Looking in the footwell it appears safe but the issue is there is a metal hinge that the pedal moves against...
