    A bit random and scary here! If I have the 166 idling, and turn on the wipers or windscreen washer - the car stops dead! Just hope it doesn't decide to do it on the road! Any theories welcome! PJ
  4. Alfa 164 & 166
    Here's one for you! Does anybody have access to the ORIGINAL Alfa Romeo part number for ther MAF sensor/meter that was fitted to the EARLY 226bhp 3.0 936 A1 166's and if so could you please post it? Having spent hours on this with the best replacement part companies websites I am still not...

    One of the front springs on my 166 turns out to be broken. However, the garage says 'someone' has changed the original, probably to lower slightly. I will replace the lot with standard issue. Would be grateful if anyone has any comment or advice about this. Thanks! PJ

    I have a dash insert set in brushed metal as fitted to original Veloce spec until 2014. If you're interested PM me.
  7. Alfa 164 & 166
    Does anyone have a likely tip for this? My cigarette lighter (aka sat nav feed) has power when ignition on and in the ACCESSORY position. But it goes dead with the motor started. This was an intermittent fault for a while, usually cured by stopping, switching off, and restarting. Any ideas...

    Hello all I've a GT 3.2 with only 103k kms on the clock. Recently had some work done on the car including a new front bank cat - it was not clogged but looked pretty burnt up inside. Since this I have been keeping an eye on the rear bank cat and notice that after a short or medium drive it...

    Is it gonna be a straight swap or are we looking at changing the hub and everything which may not be worth it? I really dig the look of the larger front brake callipers in the post 08 models.

    Hi Guys, Are the bonnets and wings the same one the face lift and pre face lift cars? I know the head lights are different but at a glance the front end panels look the same.

    Well it popped up, So swopped the glow plugs for new ones and same problem. So checked with the alfa obd software and it said heater relay thingy knakcered, Ran the tests and does not click.. Soo off to grab a spare one from the alfa breakers by me I assume these are a doddle to fit
  12. Alfa 164 & 166
    and I do mean tatty, needs belts, plugs, possibly a coil pack and water pump, Also needs the biggest clean out of its life , some panel work and a complete respray. I cant bear to see a car like the 166 deteriorate into this state, my heart is saying make a stupid offer, my head is saying...

    Hi there, I want a Brera - there you go, I said it. I've read some the buyers guide stuff - all very helpful. Up until recently I was thinking that the 2.4 diesel would be the best model for me because I drive a lot of miles. However with possible new Govt policy re. tax/emissions I am...

    Wrapping my dash trim tomorra, for people who are thinking of replacing or wrapping. Not found anything on this before so thought I'd share. I'll upload the finish once done.
  16. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    OK, barring the obvious, the front end....!! What are the differences between the pre and post facelift? What did alfa fiddle with? Anyone know the full extent?
  17. ICE & Blue&Me
    I was hoping to replace my head unit with naff factory nav with a nice(ish) double din unit. My car has the factory Bose upgrade with to be honest I'm perfectly happy with but the HU I was thinking of buying only has a 2v output on the pre outs and I'm not completely convinced that will be...
  18. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I have a pair of cf2 gtv manifolds. What i would like to know is will they fit my cf3..........easily? My plan was to get cf2 downpipes with the two bolt manifold flange to match up to the new manifolds but will these bolt onto the existing centre cat or is modification nesessary? I can't...
  19. Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I have been looking to change my 159 for a Brera, what year were they face lifted and what are the differences? Thanks.

    I'm attempting to wire a lambda sensor directly to the ecu what is the lambda sensor called that is in control of the air/fuel mixture (pre-cat1 or pre-cat2 or post-cat1 or post cat2). This is the pinout diagram me3.1 That I found online. A1, Not connected A2, Fuel vapour solenoid valve...
