My 2001 147 Climate Control Dials;
The dial nearest to the driver side moves quite loosely and freely.
The dial furthest away (passenger side) is much more of a firm twist.
So my thoughts are of swapping them over.
Has anyone any tips on removing these?

I'm looking for removing my rear-right door card. I removed the 3 bolts as explained in video we can find on YouTube. Now I "just have" to pull for uncliping the door panel, but no way ! I used specific plastic tools, try a metalic clips degrapher, but no ! Clips are very very very...
As it says...how can I remove the inter-cooler in the simplest way....preferably without disconnecting anything AC related as its only fairly recently been serviced and it seems a waste!.... Is it even possible to remove it without disturbing the AC? Hopefully someone will have some experience...
Hello Alfa owners
I have taken my intake manifold out because my swirl flaps is leaking. I have decided to buy a new manifold. I also have a kit to block the swirl flaps.
But what do you think is best when the manifold is new.
Let the flaps stay in or just remove them.
My engine is in limp mode and would like to lock the swirl flaps. I have read about disconnecting the balljoint from the actuator arm. However it looks like that this is different for a 1.9 jtdm 16v. I cannot find this balljoint. All subjects are for the 2.4 engines. Is it possible to lock swirl...
Had the classic EGR cooler box leak on my giulietta on the motorway.
Engine went hot and started smoking.
Pulled over and coolant has burst everywhere on the right side of engine bay.
Back home now and I’m taking off the EGR cooler box at the moment, removed ALL of the bolts (MAN the...
Hi, I think I need to remove my glovebox, when I open it the box just crashes open instead of nicely floating down, there is a piece of cord hanging off at the top back of the box so I’m guessing this is part of the “damper”, any ideas welcome.
I snapped the plastic ignition barrel assembly on my 1998 156 2.5V6 in half. The parts still fit together and the car runs, but if I forget to hold them together when removing the key, the barrel separates.
I have found a workshop that does plastic welding, but they can't work with the...
Hi all I am wanting to remove the lower airbox pipe that appears to go inner wheel arch lining on my phase 2 3.0 v6. I have tried removing it from above engine bay as where I am parked I cannot jack the car up unfortunately but the pipe has like push clips on top and bottom tried pushing these...
My door lock is broken and only works from the inside, hence why I started this. It would be I think very expensive at a garage, based on the fact that Alfa Workshop quote 2.5 hours labour just for the inner handle replacement, and the lock is over £200 RRP according to shop4parts, so worth a...
Hi all, I would like to respray the plastic insert on my Qtronic gear knob. I'd prefer to do it out of the car ? I can't seem to figure out how to remove the knob. The chrome plastic ring at its base comes loose OK, but I can't get any further. Can anyone give me any clues? Thanks!
I’ve got a bit of a problem.
I’m trying to change the discs on my Brera. Having got over a set back or two, I’ve finally got to changing the disc and now the training screw is stuck solid and guess what. I’ve stripped it.
I’m going to have to drill it out.

I'm trying to remove the carpet from my 156 to clean both the carpet and the floor underneath, but I can't figure out how to remove these clips that hold up the carpet to the firewall, there are one at the driver side and another on the passenger side. If someone can tell me how to remove them...
1750 Tbi - Novitec Powerjet and decat?
My 159 Tbi have the Novitec Powerjet 3 installed. My car was recently dynoed at 230 hp / 375 nm @lvl 7 (highest setting recommended)
So it do make a difference, but not quite the promised 242 hp by Novitec.
I was wondering if I installed a Ragazzon...
