  1. GT - Jammed seatbelt

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Help! While driving to work today, the driver's seatbelt locked - it wouldn't extend any further. A quick wiggle in the driver's seat revealed that it retracted fine, but still wouldn't extend (and the belt was now quite tight!) I undid the seatbelt when I got to work and it retracted fully...
  2. Alfa 156 seatbelt wiring

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I have a 2.5 V6 Alfa 156 year 2000 and recently took the driver's seat out for repairs. Upon re-installation, the airbag wiring is all there and OK but there is no connector for the seat belt wiring. I have taken the carpet up to search for a missing connector and there is nothing there! From...
  3. Disabling seat belt alarm???

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hey, guys! I have a frustrating issue with my seat belt alarm, and I would like to disable it permanently. It's not that i don't use the seat belt. I do, but the sensor for the passenger seat is broken or something, so whenever I have someone sitting next to me it starts buzzing. Ok it should...
  4. Rear mirror/ seatbelt warning light cover removal help

    Alfa Giulietta
    Has anyone any idea how to remove the rear view mirror and the seatbelt warning cover? I did it a couple of years ago when fitting my dash cam but I've now bought a replacement dash cam and need to swap the wires but can't remember exactly how it come apart! Does anyone else know how to remove...
  5. Seatbelt Warning System

    Alfa MiTo
    Hey fellow MiTo owners!! So. About 6 months ago I was going over a cobble road and the seatbelt system just decided to stop functioning correctly. Currently the warning system (lights and alarm) are on all the time. All 4 seats and buckles do not have any impact on the system. So it doesn't...
  6. Seatbelt not retracting on its own

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hello, My seatbelt in the passenger side does not self retract without a bit (a lot) of help. Taking the seatbelt assembly is a lot of work, so I was wondering if anyone has an idea on how to make it retract easier without removing the whole bloody lot ? Is there a knack to tighten the spring...
  7. New QV - Seatbelt issue

    Alfa Giulia
    I know that this has come up before, but I can't seem to find any recent information on it. I just took delivery of a new QV yesterday (black with yellow calipers, fyi). Tried to take the family (wife and three kids) out for a spin last night, when I realised to my horror that there are only...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Help, The passengers seat belt on my GT does not click into its holder, any suggestions??
  9. Brera vs 159 rear seats interchangeability

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Dear Brera and 159 experts, I have an idea of putting rear seats from the 159 in Brera to have the third seat belt in the middle. This is needed to be able to put a child seat in the middle, while retaining two full rear passenger seats (whatever that means in the Brera). Therefore, I was...
  10. GT seatbelt intermittent warning light

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    My seatbelt light comes on intermittently on the dash. This most likely caused by contact issues in the driver's buckle. With ignition on, whenever I insert the belt tongue into the buckle the light goes away but when I move the buckle or the belt a little, the light comes back. I tried to...
  11. Seatbelt rubber things?

    Alfa Giulietta
    Apologies for the vague title. I've noticed that on the passenger's interior B-pillar of my G there is a small rubber 'plate' just below the seat belt anchor point. On the driver's side, however, there isn't one. There's just 2 small rather ugly-looking holes where the plate should be...
  12. Airbag ecu and drivers seatbelt needed

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi I bought a set of second hand seats for my spider and the guy said they were good condition with no seatbelt / airbag light issues. So after fitting even though the battery was disconnected for a whole day before hand I have a light on. :( From my old spider seats I can take the strikers/re...
  13. Seatbelt change - need help

    Alfa Giulietta
    I posted a few weeks ago about my seat belt sticking. Also how to access the pretensions to change it. I now know how to strip it it back but the pretensioner has a plastic box connected to it with electrical cables coming out. It says air bag on it. It's the only thing I'm worried about when...
  14. Seatbelt warning beep

    Alfa Giulietta
    My G has developed an annoying fault - the seatbelt warning beeps randomly even though the belt is clipped in place. Once it decides to do this, it does it repeatedly and it drives me mad. Can anyone suggest what the problem might be and how I can fix it? Thanks! Vin
  15. Seatbelt position

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I'm full of not very good questions today! What are peoples thoughts on the position of the rear belts when not in use.... Leave them loose and un-clipped, or clip them in? Does it make any difference? Cheers D

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Iv source a part number from an alfa part site but I need confirmation from anyone on who can help. Can you please supply part numbers for a rear middle safety belt mechanism in all types of alfa 159 (sportswagon and saloon with and without folding rear seats) as the part numbers should be...
  17. 159 driver's seatbelt won't always retract properly

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi all, Sometimes, after a drive, the driver's seatbelt won't retract properly after it's 'unplugged'. It can look very untidy and annoys me greatly! With a bit of moving around, it will retract, albeit lazily. It doesn't do it all the time. Is this a known issue and is there a fix. Some sort...

  19. A couple of issues re: the wiper washer system and the seatbelt indicator lights.

    Alfa Giulietta
    He guys, I joined the forum a few months back with the intention of asking advice regarding a Second Hand QV purchase, but in the end i went for a new one two months ago. I just felt the peace of mind of a new car would be better. However I have a couple of niggles happening at the moment and...
  20. Anyone breaking a GT?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi, I am after three things. First, does anyone have a decent complete GT Centre Console (for the hand brake and gear stick). I would be happy to pay up to £40 including postage for the right one. Also, I am after a decent (+positive) battery terminal cover that fits both GT and 147 and would...
