  1. Introduce Yourself
    I am a user of Alfa Romeo 147. Want to be my own mechanic for minor things.
  2. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi Please could someone explain the immobilser/alarm process on the 916 Spider as I am having problems and can't seem to work out what's wrong or if it's user error. I have a red ignition key and a separate Meta key fob with a single button. Does the key fob clear the immobiliser or does it...
  3. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hi all. Livid at the moment. Truly livid. Have a 159 petrol, which had a very slight rocker gasket leak. Took it to a well known Alfa guy. The gasket was replaced, I thought nothing more and I went on a week away. Journey was great and did the 60 miles home. Pulled into my drive, turned off...
  4. Alfa Giulietta
    OK I've never replaced a car battery before but have a new E39 Varta S/S coming today and my wife says I need man points and should give it a go... I gather the process is quite simple but needs to be done in order, and there may be some subsequent tasks to perform on the car to realign power...

    Seems I've been doing it wrong: Normally, it would go foot brake on, select Park, apply handbrake, turn off engine, release foot brake. This is not good for the pawl brake. What is good for it is: Apply foot brake, select Neutral, apply handbrake, release foot brake, re-apply foot brake...
  7. Alfa Giulietta
    My sportiva nav is now 6 months old and just had a letter from my dealer to say my car is now 6 months old and a fuel system ceaner is recommended... Treatment improves fuel consumption, removes deposits, smoother running, restores engine performance etc. Treatment cost £14.95. Anybody had this...

    Guys would appreciate any advise & suggestions to help resolve an issue that has occurred after I had the BG Inlet manifold clean procedure carried out on my 159 2.4 (2007). As a note: In addition to the BG clean the only other thing he did was disconnect the negative terminal on battery as he...
  9. 4C & 4C Spider
    I'm lucky enough to be getting an LE 4C but a friend of mine was in an AR dealer in the South East of the UK today and asked about the standard car. Was told: will be taking 10k deposits in 3 months' time, unsure of pricing (45-50k) and as the car's in such limited supply they won't be running a...
  10. General Motoring Discussion
    Troops, Reading the thread about the Ferrari and AOers' preferences with respect to Ferrari, or McLaren or Lambo etc, I started wondering about the decision making processes that those lucky enough to afford such cars go through when picking a supercar. Do you think it is a purely emotive...

    Hi all could someone confirm please that if i was to join together the two lower rad fan resistor terminals and then join the two upper rad resistor terminals the fans will kick in at full speed but at just past 90 degrees. Trying to figure out whats at fault no lower fan speed Regards
  12. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Thought I'd share with you all a few thoughts on changing the 1.9 jtd engine oil pump. If your oil pressure warning light is slow to extinguish from a cold start, if it starts becoming slow to extinguish when engine is warm, if it so much as flickers whilst driving and in particular....right...

  14. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Have another thread running parallel although its to do with the suspension strut and how to attach to the hub, anyways managed this today but find myself with a Driveshaft that needs installing. So, with the suspension in place ie attached Hub to Strut and lower suspension arm is the knack to...
  15. ICE & Blue&Me
    I simply want to know how to add my HTC Desire to the Blu & Me thing. In my Brera I pressed the phone icon in the steering wheel and some italian girl tell me that no phone is associated. I just don't know how to do it. I'm sure that I have to make discoverable the bluetooth on the...

  17. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi Guys, As some of you already know I am working on swapping a 147/156 Steering wheel with radio controls to my Spider. It's a process that can be done but with some re-wiring....now I have tried but I am not an electrician and can't read the wiring guides in the alfa books. Below are 3...
