  1. Headlights switch - knob kaput

    Alfa 164 & 166
    Hi there, small number of 166 devotees in this forum, Probably a bit of a long shot, but wondering if anyone has or could suggest a source for the plastic knob/cap/thingy that you grasp to change the headlight settings. Mine was broken at the top when I bought the car 2 years ago but I could...
  2. Driver's seat adjuster Kaput

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    The driver's seat adjuster on my facelift Brera has gone kaput. It now just emits a low moan when pressed, rather than moving the seat back and forth. Presumably it's a new switch / mechanism that will breach £200?!
  3. Side lights function kaput

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    The side light function on my Brera is no longer working and I can only activate dipped headlights - the side light function activates dipped lights now. Motormech said I may need a new stalk control. Not a huge issue as I still have dipped lights but nothing for murky / cloudy conditions...
  4. Weird ECU + Immo problem..! Kaput both in once!

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hello! Currently refurbing the whole interior from my Sportiva, 3.0 v6 24v ph2, CF3. The ECU is 0261206660 and is located on the plenum. I tried to change the big connector of the immobilizer module, since the one it had was broken and some of the wires where "cut & connected" in a way i...
  5. My Menu button has gone Kaput

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I tried all the squirting of contact cleaner, as recommended, but all it achieved was to speed up the death process. (the spring action worked, but the menu selection was non responsive - after several treatments with contact cleaner, the spring has seemingly been forced out of the way) Can...
  6. Has my Clutch and DMF gone Kaput?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    GT JTD 55 plate Hi all, I was driving to a stop at a petrol station pushed the clutch down to pop her into neutral and the clutch pedal went really light? After filling her up, I drove her home and the clutch pedal was very light and she appeared to have half the pulling power, mainly because...

  11. Alternator kaput

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Well, the cause of the burning smell, smoke and the battery light coming on was the alternator saying bye bye! See my thread below: Thread linky here So, first things first, I bought the car from a trader and I bought 12 months warranty with it, 3 months remain, and the alternator is covered...

  13. Alternator Kaput, now fixed.

    Alfa 164 & 166
    When the alternator went on my 166 really weird stuff happened as the voltage dropped on the battery. First the battery light on the dashboard came on and then flickered off again after a few miles and then flicked on and stayed on this time. I was about forty miles from the house so thought I...
  14. Battery Kaput?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Before today, I drove my 156 last Thursday and I'll be the first to admit the battery wasn't sparking her into life with a short, sharp shock. So, today I came to start her and nothing. A momentary groan from the starter motor then red lights and that disconcerting click, click, click. Using...
  15. CD Changer kaput!

    Alfa 164 & 166
    My cd changer seems to have died...even though i only used it for activating the line in! Don't suppose anybody know which sony changer shares the internals as i'm oping i might be able to swap the mechanism and keep the electonics? I think it's maybe a CDX-T62 but i'm not sure...
  16. Boot release and filler flap release kaput!

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Last week I got myself a Maplin aerial to replace my knackered original. Fitted and working - hooray, another one crossed off the to-do list - or so I thought. The aerial's fine. But since then neither the remote boot release nor the remote filler flap release are working. I wondered if I'd...
  17. MAF and Idle control valve - kaput together.

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Got my new GTV (99 2.0) and the idle was a bit erratic. Now and again would go high - or just dip low (but not stall). The car seemed fine higher up the rev range. Booked into garage - then on the very very cold morning of taking it to the garage - I could hardly drive it. Stalled all the way...
  18. Front windscreen wiper motor kaput

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    2001 (Y) 1.8 156 Sportwagon - it chooses now with fresh snow falling for the front windscreen wipers to pack up completely (the push up option for occasional wipe went last week). I have read all the threads and although it looks like on occasion it may be excess damp/old leaves etc most of the...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Can anyone tell me where the gearbox rev/switch is located on a 2.5 V6 please, ta in advance, Gaz:confused:
  20. Windscreen Washer KAPUT??

    Alfa 155
    Things are going really well with my 155 this winter. :rant: One thing is the erratic windscreen wipers and the intermittent (or lack of ...) timer not working all the timer, but the fact that the windscreen washer is working like it is in dire need of a prostate operation. It only piddles...
