  1. Alfa 164 & 166
    Hello and sorry for my english but it's not my language. Try as I can. I noticed today that I don't have reverse lights. The bulbs are ok, today the lights jumped several times. I heard that there is a sensor or someone has a picture or diagram where to look? Is there a socket on the gear shift...

    One of the keys for my 156 has been lost, and I don't like having only one key that can disarm the alarm. I've already found what I need to retrieve the immo pin for adding new transponders but for the alarm and central locking, is it worth doing the same, or should I just try and find a stealer...

    I have a 24v 2.5L V6 that I recently changed the clutch and timing belt on. It's back in the car and running great. However, I can no longer get reverse gear. I have seen various posts concerning problems with the gear stick bushes etc, so I disconnected the cables from the gear selector on...

    Hi :) I'm going to fit a dash cam soon, it has a reverse camera too so I'm going to have to tap in a signal wire to the reverse switch.. Anyone know of the simplest place please? I'm guessing either under gear stock or reverse lights themselves but unsure :) Cheers, Justin

    Hi :) As title says, when I raise the clutch in reverse the movement of the engine is lots more than in first, is this normal? Also there is a vibration rattle through the clutch when pulling away in either direction ( clutch and flywheel replaced).. It's a 2008 GT Clover 170 if it helps :) Ive...

    Has anyone got any recommendations for a gear knob that will fit the 6 speed 156 with lift reverse. I could really do without spending mega money on an OEM one, my last V6 was fitted with a Momo Race Air leather/aluminium gear knob, bit these are going for £80+ now. Halfords do one for around...

    Hi all, My other half is a bit worried about her Alfa 147 1.6 TS. It can be very stiff to shift in to reverse, and will occasionaly make a loud grinding/crunching noise when trying to engage the gear. I've had a google and can see other people with the same issue on the 156 being told...
