  1. Scuttle drains

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    When changing one of my lower front grilles (see my other recent post) I discovered that my driver's side scuttle was full of water again (when I got the car I took the scuttle off and gave this area a good clean out). I managed to get the water away by poking a thin object through the rubber...
  2. scuttle screws?

    Alfa GTA
    Hi all. Does anybody know what scews are used to secure the scuttle panel to the car. Mine only has one screw on the passenger side and it doesnt look like the proper one either. Id like to get it secured properly so that it sits nicer than it does at the moment.
  3. Windscreen scuttle - rubber seal

    Alfa GTA
    I've had the scuttle off over the weekend to try to renovate it. I'm actually very pleased with the results of spraying it, but struggling more with the rubber seal that sits between it and the windscreen. Tried to reattach with adhesive, and not had much luck. Originally it was attached with a...
  4. 147 heater blower, pollen filter and scuttle water drain!

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Well a busy weekend sorting my son's 147 2.0 petrol. The plan was thermostat change (I've had the part for about 5 months!) However, he came home to complain that the blower had stopped. He's also intermittently commented that he could hear water swooshing around when he turned corners. So the...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I've noticed that water collects at the bottom of the windscreen when I wash my car, mainly on the passenger side of the scuttle. Is this normal or should it drain away? Car is an 08 Spider.

    Does anyone have for sale, or can anyone give me a part number for the two wee screw covers that fit on the outside edges of the scuttle cover? Every time I see the screw rusting away it drives me nuts and I need to cover the hole. :mad: A Google search has come up blank and none of my local...

  9. 166 wipers not parking under the scuttle? Look here

    Alfa 164 & 166
    After the heater matrix debacle I hope to redeem myself by showing you how I reset my wipers. My RHD '04 FL 166 wiper arms never dropped under the bonnet line as they should. If I unbolted them from the spindles and reset them low, so that they would park under the bonnet line, their sweep...

  13. Windscreen scuttle removal problems

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I have a 2007 147 rain gauge and am hoping to resolve this by unblocking the drains under the scuttle. I see there are several threads relating to this, but how do you avoid the plastic lugs breaking out of the scuttle when you pull it out? Most people say just 'remove it'..! I had no problem...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hello, The scuttle trims on my 156 are quite worn so I managed to find a replacement set. In the last year I've replaced my clutch, done the cambelt change, discs, and exhaust. I thought this would be the one thing that would be easy. Wrong! I'm not really sure how to go about getting the...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
