    My boot light and the boot open warning light on the dash aren't working.

I've done...

  10. Front passenger door will only open from inside

    Alfa Giulietta
    Developed a weird issue on my G this week, I've discovered that the passenger door will only open if the inside handle is used, the outside acts as if the car is still locked. Tried unlocking with both keys and also using the dash switch, still the same. Seeing as I was replacing the cabin air...
  11. How much does your 159 boot open when released?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi All, hope you're enjoying the holiday period. I'm asking the above question to guage whether I have a problem. The boot 'releases' with no issue on badge press or fob but it doesn't seem to open very far, if at all, so have to dig my fingers in a bit on the lip to get a decent grip to open...

  13. Both windows mysteriously open

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi I have the 3 door facelift. Woke up to my alarm going off last night. Went out to find both windows 'wound' down to the max. I assume the wind (and yes rain) activated the alarm. I hadn't used the car at all yesterday and know the windows were fully up when I left it. Wondered if someone had...
  14. Spider 916 roof won't open at the back

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hopefully that title sums up the problem, but I'll add a little more information below; I'm in Sydney Australia and have a black Spider 916 in right hand drive that, until last week, didn't have any issues with opening and closing the roof. (The canvas is worn, not 100% waterproof, but that's...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi all, My roof is stuck open and I have errors about the windows. Roof is open, cover is down but not pulled all the way in (looks like it should be 3mm lower at the front edge) Pressing the button in the car gets me temporary fault message - I don’t hear it even trying.

  16. Bonnet open warning 159 but no switch

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi. I will start this as a new thread as tacking it onto a 5 year old thread doesn't seem to get any attention or perhaps its cos you're all asleep when I'm awake. I would appreciate any help in disabling the bonnet open warning. Unlike other posts that I have read my 'new' 159 dates from...

  19. Alfa Giulietta Cloverleaf boot won't open

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi all, My boot has decided not to open on the key fob or by pressing the boot badge. Could this be the dreaded wiring loom issue? I've heard it could be a simple as repairing broken wire's on the LHS loom as you look at the back of the car. It becomes fairly obvious as you remove the wiring...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi guys, I am in Melbourne, Australia and need some help please! Like so many other Brera Spider owners the softtop mechanics recently started to get sporadic. Most likely cause are the two flap motors either side, which I have ordered from the UK and received recently. I know for a fact that...
