  1. Alfa GT clutch pedal clip

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi folks, would be grateful for any advice. The clutch pedal pin has come out twice now in as many months, why does this keep happening, both times my mechanic has replaced the pin, now I am afraid to drive the car incase it happens again, any idea why this keeps happening?
  2. Brake pedal excessive free play, eventually fully cured!

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Regular readers may recall that I have had an ongoing issue with erratic excessive free travel at the brake pedal. And, that I've had some success in reducing this by increasing the friction in the rear caliper pins (to minimise the rear caliper body 'flopping' around on the pins). This was...
  3. Clutch pedal not returning - 1.6 TS

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    My partners 2007 147 1.6 TS seems to have a clutch hydraulic issue. Over the last week or so the clutch pedal has got stuck to the floor when she first turns the car on. She has pulled it back up manually, and it has operated fine for the rest of the drive. A couple days later the exact same...
  4. Soft brake pedal

    Alfa Giulietta
    I have a weird issue with my '12 Giulietta MA. I have new disks and pads on, but the brake pedal feels a bit soft. If I tap the brakes, release and brake again the pedal firms up and the car brakes well. What is the problem here?
  5. GT clutch pedal went to the floor!

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all, driving home tonight and the clutch pedal went to the floor. Had a look and it looks like the metal holder Has come off, recovery put it all back on but commented that I may need a new cable as it looks like it trying to pull off again. I’ve filmed it on my phone and will try to post via...
  6. Gas pedal sticks and releases close to floor

    Alfa Giulia
    2018 ti sport. The tab on the back of the pedal catches on the base and then releases for a bit more travel. Not sure if it is supposed to be a stop that has broken or if it is supposed to continue traveling and it is now misaligned. Any idea how it is supposed to work? Anyone have pics or...
  7. Throttle Pedal removal

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi everyone, I've recently joined this forum as my partner has a Giulietta. She currently has a problem which looks like the throttle pedal needs replacing. Is there any manuals/instructions that cover this? ... the ones I've seen don't touch on this kind of maintenance. Thanks Chris
  8. Brake Light Switch on Standing Pedal Car

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    My brake lights aren’t working and I’ve just changed the master cylinder... Checked the fuse and bulbs and am pretty convinced it’s the switch - but can I find the thing?! It’s a RHD 1750 GTV with standing pedals, I can’t see a switch under the car and can’t feel one through the carpet... the...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    i need to connect a device that needs to know when the throttle is fully open . i have 2 signals coming from the pedal (before ecu ) i also have 2 feeds from the throttle body (after ecu) It does not state to connect to before or after the ecu so at a guess what do you guys think i should use...
  10. Brake Pedal Pressure

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    In normal use the brakes on my GTV ( V6, 24V Ph2) work fine but if I need to do a big stop from speed the pedal goes very, very hard within second or so and the pedal pressure required is huge. I suspect the servo is either not holding vacuum or the vacuum draw to the servo is insufficient to...
  11. Sticking clutch pedal

    Alfa Giulietta
    Just driven 20 minute journey home tonight and a few times had to lift the clutch pedal up with my foot as it didn't spring back up. While it was stuck I couldn't get it into gear. Rest of the time was working fine and seemed to feel normal on gear changes. I know it could be lots of things...
  12. Aluminium pedal pads

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I've tried to find a set of Ti style alloy pedal pads and foot rests for my manual 946 Spider. Anyone seen these for sale? I
  13. Clutch Pedal requires more pressure to change gear.

    Alfa Giulietta
    I got in my car this morning and at first i thought there was something wrong with the gearbox as it wasn’t letting me put it in 1st, however once i applied full pressure to the clutch it worked, this has never been the case before so what could this potentially be? It’s a 1.4 (170) Multiair
  14. Two very long posts regarding unwanted brake pedal travel...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Since I’ve owned this 147, I haven’t been all that happy with the brake pedal travel, or the pedal feel. The pedal was inconsistent with excessive initial travel before the pads contacted the discs, though not necessarily any worse than with many other cars that I’ve driven over the years (which...
  15. Master, Slave, Both...or something completely different?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Morning all, I’ve got an issue with my 2006 147 JTDm clutch pedal, which has got progressively worse over the past 6 month, to the point now where Its extremely difficult to get her into 1st, and reverse gears, to the point now where I’m gingerly crunching it into gear. It first started about 6...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    So it started happening recently that my brake pedal drop down, like soft brake and few times car just slows down, didn't want to brake in place until i pumped up brake pedal. First time it happened on me when i hit huge bump on road, i was driving behind brother and he made huge dust so i...
  17. Alfa 166 FL CF3 pedal TPS access modification

    Alfa 164 & 166
    after nearly a whole week of frustration, i formed a plan to modify the facia beam to gain access to the throttle TPS mounted under the dash. If this was an aircraft, an access panel would have been a must in this area, so, with that in mind I started work on an access panel modification. Its...
  18. Strange contraption in passenger footwell

    Alfa Giulietta
    Anyone know what this is in the passenger footwell of my new Giulietta Veloce ? After a few miles I started here an actuation noise and clicking when I pressed the brake pedal.... it seems to be coming from this contraption in the footwell on the passenger side when I operate the brake pedal...
  19. V6 CF3 removing the throttle pedal TPS

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I am having great deal of trouble accessing the TPS on my "big 156" and wondered if anyone on the 156 pages has any tips as to how to get to it. Info on the 166 pages isnt as thorough as the 156 group, probably due to a lack of numbers. All assistance is appreciated.
  20. 166 TPS pedal potentiometer, how do you remove it?

    Alfa 164 & 166
    I gotta confess this 166 is fighting me, and I am almost ready to go german. Ive narrowed down my problem to the throttle pedal TPS and I can see it looking up into the footwell, but I cant for the life of me see how to remove it. I need it out to test its values, and get rid of the connector...
