  2. Points to note for new and potential Giulia owners

    Alfa Giulia
    I bought my new Giulia in August 2018 and I have found the forums most useful in informing me about various aspects of owning a Giulia. In summary they are: 1. The alarm can go off unexpectedly. This has happened on 4 occasions and I will get this fixed at my first service. There is a fix...
  3. Giulietta jacking points and using jack stands?

    Alfa Giulietta
    So after hours of googling and reading I'm not much closer to an satisfying answer regarding this. Obviously there's the jacking points on the pinch welded sills like on every car, which I would use for changing the tires if it wasn't for 1. I don't have the dangerous emergency scissor jack...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi. I’ve searched and searched and seen quite a few topics on this subject but I’ve not been able to find a definitive answer or clear pics etc. I see that the square inserts at each corner are designed for the emergency scissor jack. I have read that people often use these points for other...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi Guys, I am trying to resolve an airbag light issue. I understand one of the key faults is bad earths. I have found the earths at the front (near the headlights, battery and gearbox). The diagram I have shows two points floating in space at the back of the engine bay on either side. I have...
  9. Mito roof bar fixing points - play

    Alfa MiTo
    Got a standard 2009 Mito Lusso and have been running it with roof bars attached for the last six months, carrying either a couple of bikes or a surf board. When I fitted it there was no play at all. I've noticed now that whilst nuts connecting the feet are still tight, it seems to have developed...

    With my sister in law due to have a baby quite soon, yesterday I helped her collect some baby gear (pram, car seats etc)..... The car seat she got is an isofix seat but I couldn't locate the anchor points and I felt like a real *** in front of her as I had been going on about how great it is and...

  13. Giulietta Jacking Points

    Alfa Giulietta
    Apologies if this has been asked before but I couldn't find a definite answer. I have a slow puncher and was looking to jack the car up for the first time, for the love of god I can't find the points or markers! There is no markings or depressions anywhere.

  15. Front jacking points?

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Anyone able to offer some definitive advice on jacking up the front of a 2000 GTV? I've read a lot of posts (both here and on AlfaBB) and there seems to be some debate over jacking the car using the original points on the side, the sump or the main cross member under the engine – which is...

  17. Unused mounting points on engine block

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Hi there, I'm in the middle of changing the engine mounts on my recently acquired S3 Spider. Having elected to do the job from above (inside the engine bay), the offside mount was only accesible once I had removed plenum chamber and a whole host of injection components. Thus noticed vacant...
  18. Giulia Super - front jacking points

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Hi guys, Recently into my Giulia Super ownership and it's missing the front jacking points. Spoke to AH and we reckon there's a good reason why there's no front jacking points. A bit annoying not to have them and having to lift the front from under the front suspension. So it would be good to...

    General Motoring Discussion
    On April the 3rd I was caught speeding, I was doing 52mph in a 30 zone, it sounds bad but I was coming out a national speed limit back road straight into a 30 which wasn't built up. Obviously I'm in the wrong and I should of known better. I'm just confused with what punishment I will receive...
