  2. HRW radio interference

    Alfa 164 & 166
    On my 2005 facelift car, when I switch on the heated rear window I get a lot of radio interference. I believe the aerial is embedded in the rear window. Anybody got any suggestions (apart from not using the heated window!!) Thanks, Richard

  8. Alfa 159 1.9 item Lusso 2009 Interference engine?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Does anyone know if this engine is liable to destroy the top end and Pistons if the cam belt breaks.

  20. Alfa 156 Rear Heater interference?

    ICE & Blue&Me
    Hi, I've just bought a 2001 Alfa 156. It came with a standard Alfa Radio Cassette which when I put on the rear window heater I'd loose the radio (FM Only) and just hear interference. I've popped in a Kenwood CD Tuner but I've still got the same issue. Has anyone else had this? Thanks Lou
