    Hi All, I've got a leaky roof hose and need to replace it. Is there a diagram that shows exactly where each individual hose connects to the motor..? Seems all the hoses are taped together and I want to disconnect the correct one when I swap it out. Then finally my roof will work again..yay! Cheers

    Hi folks, I'm a long time alfa owner, first GTV in 1997, a red Ph1. Which even I couldn't justify as suitable transport with small children. Anyway I have returned to the fold with a 2000 Spider. I'm on the rolling refurbishment road this past 3 years. The time has come to replace the seals...

    Hi I cannot find the previous posts using search on my phone ... Can anyone remind me what spec of oil I should use for my Spider’s electric roof? Thanks Rich ?

    Having just bought a Spider 916 and fixed all the easy issues, I'm now at the roof stage. Does anyone know the numbering sequence of the hydraulic hoses that come out of the pump? CRH in the UK sell by the the letter of the hose but unfortunately all my letters have dissappeared in a wash of...

    Hi Folks, So my spider has a major roof fluid leak.. when you operate the roof it dumps most of the fluid out in front of the roof motor just under the 2 rams, then it drips out onto the road under the car. So I thought it might be these 2 rams next to the roof motor.. I've changed both of...

    I have a 08 Spider and the roof has partly failed. It works all through the opening and closing cycle up until the last closing part whereby the rear window part fails to drop fully and seal against body leaving a 5cm gap at the rear. Reverse the cycle from that point and it fully opens. I have...

    Anyone know what this is in the passenger footwell of my new Giulietta Veloce ? After a few miles I started here an actuation noise and clicking when I pressed the brake pedal.... it seems to be coming from this contraption in the footwell on the passenger side when I operate the brake pedal...

    Hi, I need to replace the front wheel bearings on my 145. Expecting to be quoted for a couple of hours labour for each side, I thought it may actually be more cost effective to buy the requisite press and do them myself. I've seen manual hydraulic presses advertised on eBay for as little as...

    Here we go again ! ! I replaced my clutch slave a few weeks ago and took thye opportunity to replace all the fluid, clutch and brake system with fresh DOT4. Last weekend I noticed a decided drop in the level of fluid in the reservoir. After searching for a leak for hours, I came up blank. Can...

    Well, after pushing far to hard on the boot lid, I heard a crack and this is what I managed to do: Stupid I know, but "it happens". So question is, anyone know where I can get a set that isn't going to charge me a fortune? Breaker suggestions? On-line retailers? NOT main dealers as I would...

    Hi all of you helpful people. My 159 1.9 JTDm is very poorly. The misses said today "the clutch peddle won't come back up earlier" alarm bells started. Took it for a slow drive round the block, loud ticking noise started as I pulled away and as I cruised to tick over, keeping it in second...

    Is it possible to top up the hydraulic oil for the power hood??
  18. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hello to all Alfisti, and thanks for a great website with interesting information and topics I have an Alfa Spider from 1998 with E-hood. This leads to problems if there are leaks in the hydraulic system. At first I thought it was a leaking cylinder, but after this exchange (from Ebay), there is...

    Hi all, I hope I have posted this in the correct place, apologies for being a bit thick if not! I have been having some problems with my hood of late, horrible whining sounds and it takes about 100 attempts to get it to come down and go back up again! After doing some reading up on here, I...

    Three weeks ago I couldn't find any gears on starting up, and found a huge puddle of fluid under my 147 Selespeed. Turned out to be the actuator which was wrecked. Managed to get a second hand unit through Parts Gateway and local mechanic fitted it for me. I've had it back for a week and it's...
