  5. Foot Rest

    Alfa Giulia
    Hi, Has anyone bought an aluminium foot rest to match the brake and accelerator? I've seen one on ebay from China for not too much money but I wonder how reliably it would sit and feel. Thanks. Sent from my CLT-L09 using Tapatalk
  6. Guilietta arm rest - seat covers

    Hi Anyone know if there is a simple way to get the centre arm rest detached from the driver's seat? I have some seat covers I want to fit and think this would let me make a small hole rather than large slit in the cover. Thanks
  7. V6 clatter after long rest

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    replaced cam cover plenum with powder coated ones but car would not start. Traced to spark plug wires short due to insulation being ripe. Took a while so the engine has not run for 6-8 weeks. Started up and lots of rattling from engine. Could this be the oil drained from hydraulic tappets or...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi... Since owning the car, (Brera) I've never been able to move, adjust, either of the front seats, by just pulling the handle, positioned on the side of the Seat Back Rest. To get it to move, I have to push back on the seat, in the area of the 'Pull-Handle', while simultaneously, pulling on...
  9. flat spot on arm rest?

    Alfa Giulia
    Hi all the arm rest in Giulia has gone flat where my arm rests on it. Its not so obvious to look at, but run your hand over it and you can feel a dent. there is very little padding left there. My car is 7 months old, and has done 4300 miles or so. can you check yours to see if you have the...
  10. Anyone install a foot rest on a RHD manual?

    Alfa Giulietta
    So, Just got myself a G 170 Veloce JTDM-2, which I'm very happy with so far. Moving from a 1.6 petrol 156, having torque again makes driving a pleasure. One thing that is missing is a foot rest. I have read many posts of people lamenting the lack of one. My question is this, has anyone actually...

  12. GT left foot rest

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    My Blackline has nice pedals, sort of alloy with non slip dots on them. The foot rest however is just a rather dull black plastic affair. Is there a chrome/alloy/ vaguely more aesthetically pleasing footrest available please?
  13. TCT left foot rest too high.

    Alfa Giulietta
    I suffer from arthritis in my left hip, indeed this was a major factor in going for the TCT but I've concluded that the footrest is too high forcing my leg into a painful position. Anyway I've removed the rest (one 5mm Allen screw) and despite leaving a bracket the difference is phenomenal, I...

    Hi All, next on my list of little gremlins. The rear centre armrest on my sportwagon. It doesn't seem to seat properly when put up and folded into the seat...seems to sit slightly skewed and therefore doesn't fit properly. If i hit the brakes sharpish it flops forward....not the end of the...
