  1. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Two days without the weatherman predicting snow so it is officially summer which means the Spider is now my daily and the GTV will be getting a well earned rest and some TLC. First job on the list is fitting an Autodelta rear apron, Cup wings and skirts. While everything is in pieces, it is my...
  2. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hello all, last week we bought a red R-reg Spider to replace my wife's car (green) Spider which is falling apart and not really worth dealing with. It will be disposed of soon. The new car was resprayed a few years ago and had lots of work done it in the last couple years by its ower nearby in...

    Anybody had this issue? How did you resolve it? Plastic parts of the mechanism have broken off and apparently cannot be replaced. Alfa state that that only the complete assembly can be bought and replaced and they want a staggering £1,400 for it plus about a days labour. I'm truly shocked and...

    Hello all May seem like a silly question but how do I remove the roof lining on a Spider to access the struts & over-centre-hinge - drivers side? It seems to be rivetted in a couple of places. I've got the dreaded 'pop up' on the drivers side rear corner and I've had the struts replaced but...

    Hi all Did the 916 GTV ever come with black head lining with matching pillar covers/grab handles/visors etc? I have the usual grey but there are oil marks and before I replace it with another, I would much rather have black if they exist. If I cover my one the grab handles etc won't much...

    Does anyone have a new roof lining and the 6 posts for a 916 GTV in grey or perhaps know where I can get one. I've taken mine out and was going to clean it but wondered if I could get a new one instead. :beer:

    Hi All I've searched for "removing boot liner" and "replacing boot badge" and found some useful information on how to replace the badge. I've already bought the entire boot badge assembly and so am keen to remove the lining and replace from the inside without simply prying the badge from the...

    4Cs are being recalled in Europe and will probably rolled out to SA pretty soon. New gearbox and engine mapping and cruise control update. And a new set of front shock absorbers. This is to address the massive tram lining issues. Cant wait to try a before and after.

    I had a go at cleaning the Roof Lining in the '6 yesterday with not a lot of success. Due to the very damp Winter we've had there is some black mould spots. especially on the lining of the Sun Roof. Tried a proprietary foam upholstery cleaner which didn't do much and then some professional foam...

    Hi peeps, Had a random strange thought about somehow lining the glovebox with something to make it more plusher. Thinking of maybe cutting & glueing some fabric or something to line it with. Why didn't Alfa do a proper job in the first place. Alfa take note :tut: Any suggestions folks or...

    Hi, My GTV Phase 2 has a Webasto sunroof installed, looks like a Hollandia 700 but would be an older model. Anyway the rear roof lining is sagging in the rear so I started to have a feel around and it feels like whoever did the installation cut out most of the factory roof lining base to fit...
  18. Alfa 164 & 166
    My new 166 has a damaged roof lining, the sunroof seal had failed. That has now been replaced and I want to replace the roof lining. A couple of questions: 1. Has anyone replaced a roof lining? 2. How easy was it? 3. Is it a DIY job? Any help gratefully received.
  19. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    When VEAS towed my GTV away earlier this year, they dented the roof in the near side rear corner. The buggers refuse that they did it, so muggins here has to needs sort it out. I can see that there is a button fastener in the appropriate corner of the roof liner. If this was removed, could I...
  20. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Has anyone successfully changed the roof lining in their 2008MY plus, Brera and opened up the Skyview roof and let the sun shine in? I was quoted about £500 by Veloce, but they cannot put in the blind apparently. I wondered if anyone might have got one from a salvage yard perhaps. Steve
