  1. Boot Light/Door drop ****ing me off!

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    GT boot light not working. It did work when I got the car. When you open the boot the 'Boot Open' indicator comes on on the dash. I've tried two bulbs and even an new light module as the one in there was broken from prying the wrong end. I've tried spraying contact cleaner into the lock...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Can't get hold of my mechanic today so I thought I would ask members on here, I have 2 Alfas 1.9JTDm 06 plate with 93,000 and a 14TB mito 09 plate which I purchased a month ago, anyway not used the GT much in this time but have been firing her up every couple of days and nothing has been un...
  3. 1975 Alfetta 1750 ****ing idle issues

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Grr, bloody car. I've had this thing nearly a year, and its a garage queen. It just won't idle properly, hunts, dies, front fires. I have a 123 distributor, new plugs, the cams timings are good, and I just rebuilt the Dellorto carburettors, and it still is a B****! The vacuum on all cyclinders...
  4. Arese Reflections, February 2014. Anything ending in ...ING.

    Non Motoring Images
    Yet again, many thanks to everyone who participated in January's Arese Reflections! I wonder if we can entice any more budding photographers to have a go in February? One small change, I shall drop the separate thread for comments as I don't think it really works. Too much of a disconnect from...
  5. All ****ing day on one bolt $$ REWARD UP FOR GRABS

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    :mad: VERY :mad: Decided to replace the actuator on a mysterious sele problem i've been experiencing. I have changed a couple before but quite a while ago. The top three bolts were quite tight but came off with a really firm tug then down to the one inside the actuator itself, i dropped the...
  6. It's 'ing possesed! I have a witness.

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Okay so for all of you that have been following the trials and woes that I've been having with my 156 I have news... The sodding thing is possesed and I now have a choice between getting a priest in to look at it or get it booked into Alfa Technico. I'm just not quite sure which route to go...
  7. ****ing clutch

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    My clutch problems from last summer have come back with a vengeance. I suspected the master cyl previously and was going to change it next weekend. However, it has suddenly started dumping the fluid and there's a drip from the bottom of the box so it's new clutch and bearing time. I'm looking...

  9. ****ing Fiesta

    General Motoring Discussion
    A Fiesta has been parked outside my house (fine), however the alarm has been going off since 6pm. 7 hours of Fiesta torture is enough and it's time to silence it - the horn appears to be in the rear bumper but I can't see it or the wires to it. Setting it on fire IS an option but since that...
  10. ****ing V6!!!

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I cant believe it, i feel like i am going to cry. Over the weekend the car lost a bit of power. I did not think much of it as i need to replace both exhaust gaskets between the manifold and the down pipes. When i had the down pipes made out of stainless steel the original gaskets were shot and...

  12. ****ing car alarm!

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Last night, just as I was drifting off to sleep my car alarm starting wailing. :mad: I tried switching it off and on again but after a couple of minutes it started up again. In the end I went out and locked the car using the key, not sure if this still activates the alarm or not, but it...
