    Hi all We have a 2000 166 Sportivo pre-facelift (RHD) with a front left window issue. It won't wind up and of course it's just started raining cats and dogs around here! Lucky we have a garage. Right side functions normally. The relays don't seem to be window specific, (i.e. one relay for...

    How reliable is a 2003 156 with a 1.8 TS engine? As far as the looks go, it looks pretty good. No dents or visible scratches, the interior looks almost brand new. But Im wondering how often and how soon it will need the belts and pump changed? How good is this engine in general? It comes from...

    Hey, Is there a difference in the sedan and sportwagon versions of wind deflectors for pre-facelift 156's? Also, I don't seem to come across deflectors for the rear windows for the sedan version. Are they available and if not, why? Thanks!

    I have a giant hole in my filler neck, when I fill the tank to the top it leaks massively. I need to know if the pre-facelift 147 has the same filler neck as the facelift, also if there's a difference between the 3 doors and 5 doors filler neck. Thank you! https://postimg.cc/image/6bzktqa4f/...

    Hey. I currently have an Alfa 147 pre-face , in color Azzurro Gabbiano. I'm considering installing a universal front lip , what are your thoughts? Any of one got one just so I can see how it looks before ordering?

    The gear surround on my pre-facelift Selespeed is looking a little grubby so I wondered if one from a facelift model, with the chrome surround would fit ok? Has anyone done such a thing? Cheers, Antony

    Hello guys! I've been here for quite a while but first time actually posting I reckon. I've a question that would be interesting I guess: I have a 2002 156 Selespeed (new chassis, new interior with Infocentre and digital aircon display, old exterior styling, GTA-size rear brakes, VDC, black key...

    I've been searching these forums but can't find a definitive answer to this question! I have just fitted an aftermarket Pumpkin double din head unit to my 159 but the radio reception is poor. My question is :- Does the Alfa 159 (pre 2009) have an aerial amplifier and if so is it powered by...

    I have a 147 backbox up for grabs. It was sold to me as a GTA part but doesn't fit properly. It fits on the hangers just fine, but the tailpipes out from the backbox are too short to clear the GTA's bumper, which makes me think it's for the smaller bumpered pre-facelift non-GTA models. I'm...

    Hi All, So went to change what I thought was a duff fog light bulb last night (fiddly as fudge, its the model with the fog lights in the main cluster). Turns out the bulb was good, just the fog light was not working. Passenger side was good, drivers side, not good. And ideas before I go nuts...

    Hi, Are the pre and facelift boot lids interchangeable? The only major difference visually are the lights in the actual boot lid. Do the pre facelift lights in the rear quarter panels line up?

    Searching for parts, recently, I found that only 5 were registered in 2013 AND two were up for scrap v recently.

    My branch on my facelift 147 has picked up a leak at the bottom where the pipe goes into one of the cats. Does the pre-facelift 156 come with the catless branch, and does it have holes for the lambdas to be plugged into? The branch needs to come off to weld the leak, so might as well upgrade...

    I've been hankering after a 166 for a while now, unfortunately I haven't had much chance due to moving back and forth between the UK and Italy. I'm in the UK at the moment and will definitely get one if I stay. They're exclusive, elegant unlike 99% of modern cars, stylish and the 3.0 sounds...

    I collect my red 156 SW 2.4JTD next week, and it's a 2003 pre-facelift model, but with genuine 60k on the clock. I prefer the front on the facelift models like my wife's, but the mileage on mine made the decision for me. I just want to sharpen the front up a bit, and noticed these on the bay:-...

    Hi all Just on the off chance has anyone in the Essex area got the stuff to reset the airbag light? Sorry being a little tight at the moment as I've got to replace the steering arms & gaitors, inner CV boot and possible the lower wishbones. Hopefully its just the sterring arms. Thank You...

    Hi guys, I have removed the aftermarket side bumpers from the doors on ma 156 and noticed, that the front right door was changed at some point, and some idiot first glued the side bumper an than painted the car. Now i have an ugly line on the door. I was thinking to take it to a paint shop...

    Hello all, I've been trying to find information regarding the installation of a facelift radio in a pre-facelift (1999) 156, and have unfortunately been unsuccessful. I'm looking to install the Blaupunkt Bluetooth module 7607545500 to be able to stream music and answer calls and from my...

    'ello! I've always felt the Facelift rear lights are one of the worst styling features on the car - presumably they were stretched in an attempt to balance out the larger Facelift headlights and grille? I read earlier that both Pre-Facelift and Facelift 156s share the same rear wings and bumper...
