  2. Gear Knobs

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I've posted pictures of my knob (:hehe:) fitted to a friends Alfa GT (and my 159) in the past and some have expressed an interest in having a similar one. Now that I have time (and a lathe) I'm in a position to be making some and eventually becoming the next Duncan Bannatyne. So, to cut to...

  4. Giulietta TCT Gear knobs loose

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hello recently I got a second hand Giulietta 1.4 TCT and notice the shifting between R, N and D is very loose, and sometimes the knob will jump from D to N while driving. I have checked with local dealer and they said what I can go is to change the whole control unit which is >300 Euro. I am...
  5. A question about knobs...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I bought this gear knob for my GTV on fleabay. It is leather covered, perforated at the front and smooth at the rear so it looked good with a new re-trimmed steering wheel that I fitted (see pics). The only trouble is that it is not in very good condition. I ordered what I thought was a new one...
  6. Gear Knobs

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi guys, I am looking for a new gear knob to replace the original one as the leather is so worn and old it has gone a bit sticky - any recommendations ? Or is there a method to rejuvenate the existing condition ? The steering wheel has also gone a bit stick, it almost feels like the leather has...
  7. [Fix] ICS sticky knobs. Pretty and permanent solution!

    Alfa 164 & 166
    They started to get sticky after the hot summer, one was much worse, the rubber was like chewing gum, you could literally get a bit and chew it up :lol: So I started to find a decent solution. Didn't want a cheap and ugly plastic knob! After a lot of searching on ebay, I found these: 2 pcs...

  10. AirCon / Heater control knobs

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    The night time illumination has packed up in two of my 156's heater control knobs. I know how to get the outer bits off but how do you get into the inner sections to replace the illumination? Are they bulbs or LEDs.
  11. Now the Knobs Broke

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi All As the title says the gear knob has broke after 26k after spending time on this forum I guessed it would at some point. As much as I like the car the list of issues since I purchase 9 months ago is now into double figures. This is just not good enough. The build quality is very poor. To...

  18. Are gear knobs interchangeable?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I've stopped looking for a stock 147 manual gear knob so looking for something else. Are most knobs interchangeable between manufacturers? If so, what looks good? After one with the 5 gear pattern. Cheers.
  19. My knobs come off!

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Bloomin' marvellous. Pick up my new 2008 159 2.4 auto and drive it home. Park it, and the gear knob comes off as I put it into park. Boy was there some cursing in north east London this evening! The little chrome ring that goes underneath doesn't seem to want to fit back in. I'll run it back...
  20. Removing AC knobs..

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I've just got a replacement centre consol for my 02 156 flocked and plan to fit it this weekend. I've found 'how tos' on removing the centre consol, but they say 'Remove AC knobs' I was just wondering how? Is it just a matter of a firm tug or do they need to be turned to a certain position...
