    Just got the car ( 63 plate Sportiva ) back from Blackburn Alfa after a replacement multi air unit ! I'm still waiting for the replacement inner door handle. Over the last day or two the rear parking sensor has been playing, it was going off as soon as reverse gear was engaged. Tonight when my...

    Hi all, just bought 2014 G 1.4 MA Sportiva . When I got it the front parking sensors worked every time I approached something but ever since I charged the battery up they won't come on when parking unless I press the P switch or put it in reverse then they're ok. The owners manual states it...

    I'm having a full respray on my GT and need to get some sensors fitted, however lots of the aftremarket ones are bulky and not flush fit. Does anyone know where I can get a set of sensors for my GT that won't ruin her beautiful lines? Cheers. SD

    Hi All, I am not sure this is a good place to post this but thought i would try anyway as I am losing the will....... To start I would like to apologise for the post length.

    Finished off the last of my service jobs today. Went to Autolusso in Penrith yesterday and bought some gear oil. Filler plug came out easily enough with the tool in the picture. The oil that came out was red, clear and clean with no signs of metallic particles. Used a funnel and pipe to fill...

    Park over night in a relatively private car park and I thought at the time parking up against a wall, although secure may present a problem if someone park in front of me.....Nah! Surely not, we are all considerate drivers aren't we? My car has been stuck all day in the car park as sure enough...

    Hello everyone, I need some help from you guys to make the parking help available again in my 159. I replaced 1 "non-working" rear parking sensor with the new one, but the parking help still doesn't work. When I connect to PDC unit using Multiecuscan I still get the same error code saying that...

    The two middle sensors have got pushed in & I can't work out how to get my hand in to push them back out, doesn't seem possible. Any pointers please? Hoping it's not a bumper off job :ponder:
  11. Alfa Giulietta
    I am trying to fit parking sensors to the front and rear of my Giulietta. The rear ones obviously wire up to the reversing light circuit so no problem. The front sensors wire to the brake light circuit. I have found the 3 wires going to the rear brake light cluster. I have plumbed into the...

    Hi my 3 year old g is only out of warranty but was returned twice to dealership to try and rectify a front parking sensor isdue-it bleeped continuously when I washed car or whenever it rained. Unfortunately the dealer could never replicate the issue. I have narrowed it down to a fault in one...

    Hi all Reposting this as I got no takers. Is it perhaps a bu$$er of a job that should be left to my indie!? My dear wife in her infinite wisdom has pushed the offside parking sensor into the body of the car (She was trying open the boot !!) Is this a big job to get at it and refit it into the...

    Hi Folks I'm fitting Cobra reversing sensors to my Giulietta and I have to connect it to the mute on the Bosch CD 940 Stereo so it mutes as the buzzer activates. Does anyone know which wire it is, colour or connector number?

    Hi all, Looks like I'm going to have to replace all 4 of my parking sensors as after cleaning them out and renconnecting them they still seem to have lost sensitivity. I am not too keen on the idea of buying the OEM sensors from Alfa so have been looking about for cheaper alternatives. Has any...
  19. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Anyone ever succeeded to actually repair the component, instead of replacing? (Although the price delta between OEM part and AM is rather huge, I don't trust to go through the whole hassle of having to let a new unit painted in the right color shade and end up half a year later with the same...

    Has anyone else had an issue with their front parking sensors? Mine seem to go a bit mental when i am doing slow speeds. a lot of the time there isn't anything in front of me? I have spoken to Alfa Doncaster (where i bought the car) who have said i am not the only person with this issue...
