    Spider Chiptuning have recently released a compact version of their tuning box called the Micro-box. It offers similar tuning capabilities to the original tuning box, but a little less than their flagship performance pack. The beauty of the Micro-box is it's size - It's small enough to fit in...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi Please could someone tell me where the micro switch is located in the boot area of a 156 sportwagon. The car thinks the boot is open and therefore light is permanently on and I cant lock the car. I have seen that this has been covered before and can be the result of a faulty micro switch or...

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Anybody know where I can get a spare? boot open light was showing on the dash so did some investigating. Disconnected the microswitch connector from the lock area and put the multimeter across the two wires. The circuit is showing as being permanently closed even when I push the microswitch...

  12. Anyone good with micro electronics?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi there, my 156 digital climate control panel has never worked on the drivers side. Turning the knob doesn't change temp. I assumed it was shot, today for about a minute it worked! So I assume something's wrong with the guts of the unit or the sensor on the adjuster wheel. Anyone fancy fixing...
  13. micro tip - wheel wrench

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    This might be a no brainer. If your Alfa wheel wrench surface finish is like mine it's as good as a rasp file. If you want to keep your alloy in the wheel nut sockets scratch and abrasion free just wrap a couple of layers of gaffer tape round the wrench from the socket end along and past the...

  15. Wash mit, micro cloth & Aqua Wax

    Car Detailing
    On previous cars I've always used a sponge & chamois leather, but taking advice from this forum I decided to give the sheepskin wash mitt & micro fibre cloth a go. Can't believe how much quicker I can now wash & dry the car; just wish I'd tried it ages ago. Anyway, thought I'd give AG Aqua Wax...

  20. Boot light micro switch in a GT

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    The title says it all, can anyone tell me where the switch is for the bootlight in a GT? a minor problem I know but annoying nonetheless it isn't the bulb, I've swapped that out, I reckon that it's a sticky switch, but where is it?
