  1. Door hinge pins

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    As title really, just put a 78 alfetta gtv back on the road for the first time since 1989! Going to use it as almost a daily driver, at least when the sun shines. One of the snagging jobs that needs looking at is the dreaded driver's door droop, so, has anyone managed to change the hinge pins on...
  2. Oooh me pins

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    After changing pads countless times on countless makes of different bikes and cars, I've never suffered this bad. WTF? Punching the pins out, that'll never work, sorry little Brembos :-( Maybe tapping them out with a sharp stick. Nope. Right you little b'stards you're getting cut. Hours and...
  3. Brera front brake pins

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Evening all, So changing the front brakes today (or should I say attempted to change my front brakes) Had a ‘mare with the pins, one of the pins snapped, so I now have about 2” of one left in the Caliper. I spent about 3 hours with a club hammer, various size punches, and copious amounts...

  6. Window/mirror switch pins?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Messing around trying to get the mirror/window switch in my GT to line up right I yanked it a bit too hard and pulled the black plastic part up and away from the green control unit without removing the screw. Long story short one snapped piece of plastic on the green control unit, no bit deal...
  7. Brembo pins

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Does anyone know the part number for the pins in the brembo calipers? Had to cut one in half to remove it, looked like they hadn't removed in forever...
  8. GT rear brakes - Sliding pins

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all. I thought I would rebuild my rear brakes at the weekend to get rid of the squeel but discovered that the lower sliding pin has a rubber collar that slightly expanded due to a reaction with copper grease. I need new sliding pins but I can only find a set for the 147. I know the GT's...
  9. 156 rear caliper guide pins

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hmmm. I need some new guide pins as 3 of my 4 have been cross-threaded by the last bugger to work on my rear brakes. As a result you can't do the bolts up tight enough to stop the caliper from wobbling a bit - result along with the lower pins seizing has been uneven wear on pads and lots of...

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider

  11. Genuine Chrome Door Pins on Parts World

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Seeing as a number of items for our cars are disappearing fast, it was nice to get a set of "Genuine" Chrome Effect Door Pins. They do look good and only cost a few quid. They still have reasonable stock if anyone is interested...

  15. Spider roof pins open on their own

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi everyone, I've been facing an issue which seems to have started about 2 weeks ago on my '98 Spider with manual roof. In essence, it randomly unlocks the rear pins on the roof lid causing the roof to effectively open on the back. It happens after i've taken the key out and as i stand next...
  16. Brembo Brake Caliper pins (Sticky Maybe)

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi all, I need to change the discs and pads on my 2008 Spider LE and as normal one of the pins was seized solid, not so much an issue as an annoyance. Getting out a seized pin will destroy it and you will have to replace it. As good practise its always recommended to replace them when you...
  17. Brembo Calliper pins the wrong size?

    Alfa 164 & 166
    Hello 166 section. I need to replace the slider pins on the set of callipers I use on my Spider (the callipers are from a 3.0 166, of this I am certain). The replacement pins I ordered are, however, far too big. Ive read fleeting mentions of this before, but no hard info. The replacement...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi guys, Does anybody know where I can find these mat pins like the picture (part A)? I understand these where dealer fitted and not official Alfa (the official ones where smaller, see second image).
  19. Rear Caliper Sliding Pins

    Alfa GTA
    Can anyone tell me who supplies replacement sliding pins for the rear calipers, specifically the lower pins with the rubber? Having just replaced the rear discs and pads one on the lower pins was stuck and having removed it the rubber was swollen and loose. Also it appears they've been...
  20. Brembo calliper pins

    Alfa 164 & 166
    Hi guy, I don't normally frequent this part of the forum but I'm in the middle of a 166 brembo upgrade on my alfa gt. The only thing holding me back is I can't get the correct calliper pins for the 166. My question is does anyone have a set that they are willing to sell?
