  1. GTV paint bubbling near back screen, ideas?

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    My GTV has a little paint bubling in a bit of a tricky place. What's the best course of action here? Is it possible to fix without removing the rear screen? As far as I understand that is a big job that requires a lot of the interior stripped and the glass will not be re-usable, can anyone...
  2. Any ideas what its worth?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I have finally decided to sell my 156 2.4 JTD 20v sportwagon with just under 68000 miles (documented) - but I have no idea how much its worth. The condition is good for its age, but I can't find a single 2.4 JTD for sale anywhere to help me gauge what its worth. Be great if I could have some...
  3. Any ideas where this goes?

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    With Martin AKA Joe90, we have been reassembling the Alfetta GTV and it's 99% there. A few bits are left and i cannot remember where this earth strap goes? Also the foglight switch has broken. Does anyone have a spare? Thanks Rich
  4. GTV Gear Knob Ideas!

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi all! I'm looking to replace my GTV's original leather 5 speed gear knob with something with a bit more weight and that's a little more slick. I've tried shopping around for official Alfa replacements but didn't really find one to my liking, so I'm wondering what everyone else is using in...
  5. Any ideas on rattling noise

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I've just done my chains and ll has been well apart from a noise I now have on tick over. It goes when the vvt comes in but is audible at low revs. All was well for the first 200 miles but then started first on start up but went away after a couple of seconds. Any ideas,
  6. Ideas to free siezed caliper nipple?

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi, Anyone got any workable solutions to free the bleed nipple on 4 pot Brembo caliper.. it's the inside one that's being a pain. The Alfa specialist, through experience is hesitant to apply more force saying he knows it's going to snap off. Had to bleed the caliper by turning it upside down...
  7. Ideas for a classic car project... ?

    General Motoring Discussion
    So... I'd really like to build a car. Buy an old shell with bare mechanicals and pretty much build the whole thing from scratch over a year or so. Not right now because I don't have a garage. But it's on my radar as something I'd like to accomplish in the near future. The question is... Which...
  8. T.S. Igniton upgrade ideas / thoughts?

    Alfa 75, RZ, SZ
    Right so my coil pack failed fairly spectaculary luckily I was there to catch it before it got too bad see attahced. Any way its time to replace the coils they have lasted pretty well atleast 10 years if not 25!! So what are the options? Original Bosch Replacment : 0221600054 Quite...
  9. Any ideas what this is?

    Alfa GTA
    Evening all. This evening, when turning left into a side road, I heard a noise like metal on tarmac. I stopped and found this, warm to the touch. Does anyone recognise this as something that could feasibly work its way off a 147GTA? The car goes and handles fine since.
  10. Warning light - any ideas?

    Alfa Giulietta
    A new warning light has appeared in the display where shift gear/dna/etc appear. It looks a bit like a ship's wheel, with an exclamation mark in the middle. No mention of it in the handbook and no message appearing in the message box. Any ideas what this is trying to tell me? Everything seems...
  11. Any ideas what these mean...?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    OBD Reader codes....not sure what they mean?
  12. Any ideas on why my 156 V6 has started chugging?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hello again guy's, we had some snow here a few weeks back and since my Alfa has started chugging on tick over. Had some diagnostic's done and read that i was getting multiple miss firing on all cylinders 4,5,6 and open loop due to declaration or engine load (Not sure what that means?). So far...
  13. Parking sensor issue- any ideas?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi all, There are quite a few threads discussing 159 rear parking sensor issues. To clarify, the issue I’m having is a sustained beep for 2-4 seconds when selecting reverse, but only usually in wet weather I’ve noticed. Is this a faulty sensor or more likely a connection issue? Either way...
  14. Any ideas what model and colour this is?

    Alfa Giulia
    Saw this Giulia this morning.
  15. Ideas to keep the Guilietta selling until the new model comes

    Alfa Giulietta
    What Alfa should do is put in the 280 bhp engine from the Giulia, plus a mechanical LSD. I believe its the same block as the 1.4 and 1750, although I may be wrong on that. That would be a car that I would buy. What about the rest of you guys? Sent from my HTC U11 using Tapatalk
  16. False 'check tire pressure' warning - any ideas?

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi all, Looking for some feedback, ideas or education please. I put 4 new tyres on my 2 year old Giulietta 5-6 months ago, all great, no problems. Last week I topped up the tyre pressures at a garage forecourt after feeling the handling fade a little. A little low (my bad) but no issues, all...
  17. Teledials wheels 16" ideas for color?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    My bella is in the Azzurro Gabbiano spec. Picture attached. I'll be switching my steelies for 16 inch teledials(again, pic attached). What colour would you guys recommend will look good on them with the color of my car? Winter rims but if they look really good, I might leave them in the summer...
  18. 147 wet footwell after trying all suggestions - any ideas?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    147, LHD. It only fills with water on the passenger site, aka where in your RHD cars is the drivers seat. It happens when it rains, car is stationary. What I did: Clean under the scuttle panel. Refitted both wheelarch bungs. Small bunges near the hinges of the doors, refitted. Poured some...
  19. FMIC ideas? Will an Iveco Daily IC serve the purpose, and what else is needed?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Want to mount a FMIC. Think I read somewhere that an Iveco IC will mount pretty well. What work will be needed to get it working? Will I need custom made pipework or is it a plug n play solution?
  20. Ideas?

    Alfa GTA
    Hi chaps does anyone know what this cable is for? It looks like an RF cable with a BNC type connector. Any help greatly received? Cheers Spence
