  1. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Have had the common Brera problem of the front seats refusing to tilt the seat backs forward and the seat sliding forward. Bought and installed a replacement seat and decided to investigate the issue, removed levers at drivers seat side and the associated plastic and got access to the fulcrum...

    I believe that the leatherette pull strap was discontinued, does anyone have one lying around that they would be willing to part with, I know you can leather ones but mine is a white QV and none of the available options really go. Cheers
  3. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    The 1.9 159 threw a wobble today ... The car had driven 20 mile and then there was a lot of jerking and a pluum of smoke out the back, It didnt look black smoke as you'd expect with a split pipe , it wasnt white like a failing turbo and it wasnt blue from oil ... The car seemed to settle...
  4. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hello Alfisti, I have a problem with a 2,0 mjet Brera. My friend who is a mechanic changed a few things on this car, clutch, dmf, transmission, turbo, throtle body. They asked for a remap, and a dpf off for this car. Ecu had been opened and a full save have been did with bdm. The car was ready...
  5. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I recently fitted a new clutch on my GT but had to remove it as I made a boo-boo in putting it all back together:weeping::weeping:. I was told you couldn't remove the bearing from the cover once you had snapped it on but I saw a YouTube clip on another thread showing how to remove it with a flat...
  6. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    So today driving to work on the motorway at about 80mph in 159 sportwagon 1.9JTDM, the steering suddenly started vibrating with a severe pull to the left (almost felt like a blow out). This went on for around 5 seconds as I slowed (without breaking) to move over into slow lane before it went...
  7. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hi all, Unfortunately my front door limiters/straps/checks have died because they produce the notorious knocking sound when opening or closing the door. How can I pull these out and put new ones in? The door limiters/straps/checks of the back doors were quite easy to replace but the front ones...

  10. Alfa MiTo
    Door pulls on my MiTo are looking a bit scuffed and battered from previous owners, so I'm looking to wrap them in vinyl to clean them up. I know how to get the front part off, (followed this video: ) but I have no idea how to remove the back part without potentially breaking things. Are they...

  12. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I am a new Alfa owner (2005 156 2.0 TS Selespeed) and love this car, but 1 problem. It doesn't like pulling away from cold even with City off. Doesn't jump about for long, about 50 yards, and then its fine. Any suggestions please?
  13. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all Full Electric Recaro Front Seats , The handle on the side is it for raising up and down as for me it does nothing when i pull it so i was wondering if its worth pulling it out and having a look and a fiddle :irked: Thanks in advance
  14. Alfa Giulietta
    After a bad blow out experience on the motorway two weeks ago, I have had to get a brand new Dunlop Sport Maxx on the front left. Now I've got a pull to the right when hard accelerating in D Mode. I believe this to be torque steer as the old tyre is smaller than the new one by around 4mm. Anyone...

  16. Alfa GTA
    Hi guys...Im nearly done with the purchase of a Sportwagon GTA...the car is immaculate but only one thing concerns me. There is a vibration on pull away when the steering is slightly turned... it happens at no other time. The previous owner had it at mechanics and they checked out the cv's...
  17. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Morning all, You know those little half cup handles you use to pull down the bootlid? There are two (one each side) screwed in to the boot plastic. Well, one of ours broke so I was hoping / wondering that they are available..... Any ideas? Cheers,
  18. General Alfa Discussion
    This is really true! Yesterday I was visiting a main Maserati and Ferrari Dealer in Colchester and the cars were all in to £60k - £400k. So very very nice. Turned up in my 2001 Nuvola Blue 156 Sportwagon which is nice. Anyway I got talking to the sales guy and he asked me what do I drive and I...

    My 2012 Giulietta bonent pull/trigger has just broken off. Its always required a good yank to open but today the plastic just broke off. The circular bit which fits onto the spindle seems to have lost 20 degrees of its casing and now i cannot open the bonnet as it just flexes and misses its...
  20. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hey all, Seen a few posts saying these can't be removed without breaking them etc (I looked the other day as my new one didn't engage correctly). Now I will try and explain how to remove it without breaking it, please note this is done on my brand new clutch which is working fine. So whip...
