    how do u remove the cig lighter
  2. Lighter suspension components - Upgrades?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Pud's had me looking at polybushing the rear bush on the (front) lower arms on my 159 on the basis it will help with inner edge tyre wear. As part of this I noted that my Mother's Brera, an early model, whilst having a cast iron upright, employs an alloy lower arm; IMG_8021 by Chris, on...

  5. Cigarette lighter woes

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    My cigarette lighter seems to have stopped working, I've checked the fuse and that's fine so guess it must be an issue the unit itself. Has anyone else come across this problem?
  6. Cigarette lighter replacement

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi guys My cigarette lighters near the cup holder and also the one in the boot are beginning to wind me up. Everything wriggles about and nothing seems to sit flush and tight in the socket (makes using a tyre compressor almost impossible without someone holding it in place inside the car/boot)...
  7. 159 cigarette lighter illumination live...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Replacing the centre consul as the cigarette lighter part is broken. Connected the new one up and the illumination doesn't work. Does anyone know where the illumination live comes from? I've checked the fuse and there is power to the cigarette lighter itself just not the illumination.
  8. Lighter Lower Wishbones?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I'm sure I read somewhere that 156 cars are fitted with aluminium lower wishbones, whereas 147s are steel. Can anyone verify this please? I want to reduce un-sprung weight as much as is sensible, and this would be a cheap way of helping achieve that. TIA

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi. Recently bought a GT as a project, hit a few snags. Hoping someone on here can help me out a bit. Really like the car, but it's a bit short on tech (not a criticism - it is 13 years old) Wanted to add a dashcam. Discovered cigar lighter socket wasn't working. Book says fuse 45 under...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I've seen some threads about this over the years on here, has anyone managed to add something like this to the existing lighter power source, or would it require an additional feed to the fues box? Any experience with this? ...
  13. Cigarette lighter has power, but won't charge

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    My cigarette lighter has power, enough to light LED on the USB phone charger but won't deliver any power to the phone. I've tested 2 different USB plugs, 2 different adaptors. All combinations work in a friends car, without issue. Tested my socket with a multi meter and it delivers a constant...
  14. Cigarette lighter holder

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Found an old DAB+ unit that plugs into the cigarette lighter and when put it into the cars lighter it interferes with second gear to the point it knocks the DAB unit out. I have a bluetooth/ iPhone radio in the car and the DAB around where I live works really well. I like having the decisions to...

  18. Is the 159 cigar lighter standard?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    This seems like a strange question, but I bought an FM transmitter to play spotify in car which just plugs into it, however it sits very loose. In previous cars accessories 'click' in and are quite stable, this falls out at the smallest movement. I am trying to work out if it's a common 159...
