  2. Help required: removing air vents

    Alfa MiTo
    Evening all, A quick search on the forum yielded no results, so here we go: how does one remove the 4 air vents from the dashboard? Specifically, the 4 round front-facing ones. If I recall from the 159, it takes two J-shaped pieces of wire/metal and a firm tug to pull them free. Is it the same...

    I'm currently cleaning up the under-floor of the Younger Mrs S's Cinquecento since it failed an MOT with some rusty chassis rails (now welded up). While I'm there (subframe out, fuel-tank out, brake lines out etc.) I decided it might be a good idea to repaint the whole underfloor and wheel...
  4. Removing aircon condenser ...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Just a quick check with you guys about this - maybe save sometime from having to take bumper off and reinstall a failed item. I stripped out my radiator and condenser when I had to replace the leaking radiator. Condenser was a mushy mess and clearly not functioning, so I didn’t reinstall or...

  7. Removing Cold Start from Giulia 2.0L Petrol

    Alfa Giulia
    Has anyone done this? Think some tuners can remove the function of pumping heat into Cat upon startup until warm. Have an aftermarket exhaust and happy with sound except on cold start when it sounds too much. Have you heard of any alfa tuners who have done this on Giulia or other models? Is...

  11. removing the CODE box causes bouncing locks?

    Alfa 164 & 166
    when i installed the reprogrammed ECU into my 3.0 fl, I reasoned that since the ecu no longer needs a CODA function, I could take the code box out of the circuit. Having done this I now have bouncing locks. Is it a coincidence ? and i need to strip and clean the locks? or should I re plug the...

  13. Removing Adaptive Cruise Control

    Alfa Giulia
    I dislike the adaptive cruise control and wonder if other people feel the same. My dislikes: When cruising on the motorway the range is too long even when set to " 1 bar" meaning that the car slows down causing me to have to accelerate before I pull out into the overtaking lane. If I pull...

    I have a fuel leak from my tank. I think its a hose loose at the top of the thank as it only comes out when I top it up.
