    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi folks. My nearside side sill on my 2009 159 ti is loose and shaking, I wonder if anyone has re-fitted this and knows the correct retaining clips or if adhesive is best? Thanks

    All, I’m having some real trouble removing the two brake pad retaining pins from the front callipers. They are corroded solid. I guess the back will be just as bed when I tackle them. Any suggestions on how to remove them? Regards Simon

  6. Retaining nuts for under steering wheel panel on GT

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    So I lost the first, right hand, retaining nut when I first got the car - no biggy, the clip is right next to where it should be, and there's another retaining nut on the left. However, thinking last night, I managed to pop out the remaining retaining nut on the left of the steering wheel, and...

    Hi folks, Does anybody know where I can get the retaining brackets which are fixed between the rear side of the door card and top of the map pocket. Car is an S3. Not quite sure what their purpose is but would fit them for the sake of completeness. Martin B

  9. Gah! Broke parcel shelf retaining clip...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    ...getting my mountain bike out of the back. Yeah, I know. Still, only £4.50 delivered from Desira's eBay shop, I feared I was going to have to buy a whole chunk of trim to fix it. Strangely they're not listed as a spare on ePer for the GT, however they are listed for the 147 and Stilo, same...

  11. Part number for missing H7 headlamp retaining clip.

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Anyone changing dipped beam bulbs on a 159 will know how easy it is to lose the retaining clip. Reading other posts on the subject it seems that the clip is only available from Alfa as part of a complete light assembly. By sheer luck I discovered that the exact same clip is available from...

  16. Front brake disc retaining screw

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi Was working on front suspension when noticed the disc retaining screw is missing. It has aftermarket alloys fitted (not by me). Is this an Alfa only part or can a general screw be sourced to fit. I assume it fits flush to the hub. Neil

  18. Headlamp Bulb - Retaining Clip

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Had to change a bulb tonight in the dark in the carpark at work. Unfortunately the retaining clip sprung out and disappeared. It's the main H7 headlamp bulb. I've used some ty-raps and may make up another clip using wire but does anyone have a spare clip as it would be more secure?
