  1. 1.9 Sportwagon - Huge amounts of smoke

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I have had a 57 plate 1.9 159 Sportwagon for about 3 months now and it is giving me some headaches. Almost every day on my commute to or from work it will suddenly begin to put a crazy amount of white smoke out of the back. So much smoke that you cannot see out of the back window (think volcano...
  2. HUGE bill in prospect, for a faulty windscreen wiper??

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi all, During the recent icy weather, my wipers got solidly stuck to the windscreen overnight. I think I may have pulled a bit too hard dislodging the driver's side wiper, with the result that it appears the mounting point to the body, under the black plastic fairing, may have broken. The...

    Hi, So during my morning commute, I started to notice a strong diesel smell. Stopped the car, got out and saw a HUGE puddle of diesel underneath the car. Diesel started running down the road... Anyone have any idea what this could be? My best bet is a failed fuel pump, but can't say for sure...
  7. Tyres make a huge difference on the G

    Alfa Giulietta
    Yesterday I finally got around to swapping the front tyres on my G. I already had Goodyear Assymetric 2 tyres on the back, so decided to replace the Michelin PS-3's on the front so that I could have a matched set. The Michelins were only down to 3mm so would probably have lasted longer, but...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    WARNING, my method is pretty silly brute force method so finesse geeks can have a different cup of tea or something. The first step are obvious and covered by youtube videoes. 1. On the ground loosed axle nut. (See threads about modified socket) 2. Jack up car (I have a lift). 3. Remove...

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi all, Car's been fine, no probs at all, for the first few weeks of my ownership. I've driven around 700 miles in it without a single issue. Over the weekend, when driving down a dual carriage approaching lights, I stuck it into neutral and heard a lot of light scraping/ticking and -...

  16. Huge windscreen crack

    Alfa MiTo
    I've got a huge, roughly 40 cm front windscreen crack in front of my field of driving vision. I believe that the windscreen of Alfa Mito is coded with serial number or so, so how do I go about replacing it?? If I use someone like Autoglass or my car insurers (Sheilas Wheels), will they not...

    Have visited AutoLusso for the first time - my GT has gone in to get the arb/bushes sorted as it rattles like hell.

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    GT JTD – Major Oil Leak I came home from work this morning to find a huge pool of oil under the offside front of my car; enough for the dipstick to be dry when I checked the level. Luckily, I have 10 days of warranty left, so the car is now on the back of an AA truck and on its way to my local...
