  1. Faulty door Lock

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    As mentioned elsewhere I've acquired a 2nd '01 TS Spider. Not planning to do to much with it at the moment, just make sure she's road legal and drive-able. Main issue at the moment is the fact that the passenger side door lock appears to be broken. It won't catch. I've taken the door card off...

  4. Exterior Door Handle Lock Loose

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi, My Giulietta (2011) has always (whilst I have owned it) had a loose exterior door lock. It appears that the garage I bought it from a couple of years ago glued it to the door and the glue has stopped working. The handle and lock work s fine. Now it appears that the torx bolt (from what...

  15. Door lock button

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi there, Was wondering if anyone has fitted a switch in the cabin that will lock/unlock the doors without triggering the alarm. I am aware that you can just push one of the door pins down, but that's way too much effort for me. Thanks

    Yesterday the boot stopped opening. No response from the key or pressing the badge. Indicators flash when pressing the key, but no action from the lock.

  19. How to remove a front door inner panel - access lock or window regulator

    Alfa Giulietta
    My door lock is broken and only works from the inside, hence why I started this. It would be I think very expensive at a garage, based on the fact that Alfa Workshop quote 2.5 hours labour just for the inner handle replacement, and the lock is over £200 RRP according to shop4parts, so worth a...
