    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hello everyone. Not just recently I began to solve issue of non-lighting airbag icon. So i bought a 10 candela red LED and replaced the old one, but a new one is far more brighter than other lights. Does anyone know the specifications of LEDs that has been used by Magneti Marelli or some that...
  2. Replacing instrument panel with earlier Mk 1 .. ?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi everyone. Is it feasible to replace the instrument panel on a facelift 147 with the shrouded earlier version ? Am also investigating a faulty fuel gauge and have read that the prime suspect is likely to be a loose wire behind the instrument panel. Hopefully I will not require a proxy...

  4. 1986 GTV6 Instrument Glitch

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    I took the GTV6 out for it's first run of the year at the weekend (150 mile round-trip, so it got nicely warmed-up) and, on the way back the tacho started flickering as soon as I switched the lights on, then all the gauges failed in unison. If I switched the lights off, all gauges sprang back...
  5. Instrument Cluster & DNA Switch Lights

    Hoping someone can point me in the right direction of where to look! A couple of days ago, I noticed that the light on the DNA switch was flickering when in 'N'. I also noticed that the backlighting on the instrument cluster was only part-working (it all works apart from a very specific part...

  7. Any way to buff out scratches in the central instrument cluster screen?

    Alfa Giulia
    A few days ago I noticed a fair bit of dust accumulation in and around the central instrument cluster and dials. I wanted to give it a clean so took (what I thought was) a clean cloth and gave it a wipe down. I can now see a lot of very fine scratches and swirls, particularly in the central...
  8. Instrument Cluster / Steering Wheel fit..

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi, I'm sure you'll get fed up with my questions before long! I've just noticed that the instrument cluster on my 2011 Giulietta Cloverleaf (which I picked up yesterday) doesn't sit flush with the top of my steering wheel column? You can clearly see how it should fit together in the picture...

    My new 166 FL is quite fantastic but at least one bulb behind the tach is dead. Does anyone know an item number and maybe even a source for new bulbs?
  12. Instrument cluster screen

    Alfa Giulia
    For some reason the screen between the two dials is now blank and has been for two days. It happened once before but after switching engine off and back on it was working fine - but this time nothing!! I am suspecting this is more than just a setting and it is back to the dealership - unless...

    Hi all, I haven't owner my 1975 Spider for very long and it's never had working instrument lights. Not even one. I've had a look under the centre console and there only seems to be one connection going to the dash light switch. I seem to have other unconnected leads free under here and I'm...

    Well finished work early today so I thought that I would at long last change the bulbs in the instrument cluster :thumbs:, swapped them over with no problems, reassembled and turned the ignition on to admire my handy work and to my horror I discovered that my car has now joined the airbag light...
