    Hi all, So I’ve been thinking of getting this; Bulk Head / Scuttle Drain Pipe part number: 46400194 my 147 is 2001, 21 years and 10 days old. I checked the location in the scuttle area and there is an oval rubber grommet type thing with some slits to let water out. When pouring water down...

    Chatting to Alfashop yesterday about a washer pump for the 147 we got talking, as you do, about all things Alfa parts. They said to me that 156 windscreen washers had recently become obsolete. I thought this was slightly worrying, because whilst a 147/GT will happily accept MiTo washer jets (and...

    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...

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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.

    can anyone advise on how to remove the scuttle panels, I want to change my wiper mechanism, I've removed the screws but they don't seem to be free. Cheers guys.

    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...

  11. 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...

    Hi, does anyone know please - what the specification was for the 2008 3.2 V6 Q4 Spider shocks and dampers? Were they regarded as being any good or is there a better modification that is worth the investment? I do a lot of B and A road driving in the UK and France so I am looking for a good...

    Hi guys, Got some water in the passenger footwell so wanted to have a quick shufty at the drain holes under the scuttle. I figured i'd just pop the right hand one off to avoid removing the wiper arms and having removed the 4 screws (2 next to the engine bay, one in the corner under the a pillar...

    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...

    My Wiper arms & scuttle panel were really showing their age, with paint flaking off and severe weathering. Over the last few weeks I acquired used scuttle panels and some wipers from an ebay breaker, some new Alfa wiper blades with spray bar clips from partsworld UK, some satin black Hammerite...

    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...

    Hi everyone. While removing the scuttle plate I noticed that the N/S screw had a striped head and the thread had been damaged, resulting in the screw just turning without tightening. Can anyone recommend a screw size that would be slightly bigger? I'm planning on using a stainless steel...
