    All - car is a brand new Veloce 280. At very narrow accelerator positions and therefore low revs, particularly when pulling away from stationary - the response can feel a bit hesitant,slightly 'juddery' as if there is a bit of fuel starvation... Has anyone else experienced this or have any...

    Does anyone know the resistor values for the wiper intermittant period/rain sensor sensitivity on the column stalk? I've had a look through the 166 eLearn but they don't seem to record the values :( This will be the resistance values between connector D pins 3 and 10 ( according to eLearn )...

    Hi Guys, any suggestions? I have a 2010 Veloce which i love, recently the climate control dials that indicate what temperature is set on the driver side has gone out, the fans/heat/aircon all work fine and the temperature indicator on the passenger side comes on. Just wondered if there was a...

    Can anyone confirm the correct torque setting for the Multiair Oil filter/strainer (part no. 55238665)? It's the one located in the cylinder head behind the upper cambelt cover. I've only found a post on a spanish forum which, according to google translate, seems to be suggesting between 2.4...

  11. 'Nav next turn pop-ups in cluster' Setting

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hello, Seen 'nav next turn pop-ups in cluster' setting in the satnav settings of my Giulietta (6.5inch non live). Doesn't seem to actually do anything, in my head it would give me the next turn in the screen between the speedo and rev dial. Anyone use this setting or know what it does...

    ICE & Blue&Me
    Afternoon all! I posted this in the Mito forum as well, but thought there might be a bright spark in here who could help too! I am considering replacing the head unit on my 2013 Mito. I currently have the standard uconnect system, but am looking to fit a new Kenwood system (DAB, Android auto...
  13. Setting the time with an aftermarket stereo

    Alfa MiTo
    Morning all! I am considering replacing the head unit on my 2013 Mito. I currently have the standard uconnect system, but am looking to fit a new Kenwood system (DAB, Android auto etc etc). It got me to thinking though; obviously I will lose access to the settings menu from the uconnect, and...
  14. 1.9 JTDm Cam setting???

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi all, So been looking through the elearn and how to's on here and as usual I am confused. I can see how you lock off the crank with the tool. What I cant find is a description of setting the cam . is it purely the lock pins in the right place or is there more to it? I know some may say its...
  15. Hub Nut - Torque Setting

    Alfa 33, Sud & Sprint
    I have had a look on various web pages etc, but I am trying to find an accurate figure for the torque for the front main hub nut. Things seem to range anything from 200Nm to 470Nm. I had a look at one manual and it said 427- 472Nm - but that just seems MASSIVE! There are a few low value...
  16. 2015 Guilietta Rain Sensor Wiper Setting ?

    Alfa Giulietta
    Our Guilietta has auto wipers. As with other similar systems they seemed to be a bit slower than we'd like, so I looked to increase the sensitivity via the U-Connect screen. I went in and wound them from 1 to 4 and forgot about it, as I don't drive it very often. Today we had torrential rain...
  17. How do I lock the car without setting the alarm?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Ok, I have twins and in the morning need to put them in the car. I am on my own and I don't have time to be putting on slings etc, so handiest is to put one in, and then head back into the house to get the other. This takes around one to two minutes I suppose but the car is out of my sight...

    I'm going to bet this has been answered before, but I can't figure out what to search for. What: Rumble from what feels like the back end. A little noise, but mostly feel it in my butt. It is NOT the engine lugging. I just taught two people how to drive stick... I know what THAT feels and...
  19. Continental headlight setting

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Silly question of the week, does anybody know which way the little tags go in the dip headlight unit when changing the dip for driving on the continent. I have switched mine over a few times and cannot remember where I am up to. To be honest I cannot see much difference anyway, just being my...
  20. Setting the date on 156 JTD 16V Turismo

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I have a 156 Turismo that has the date on the info center. However, when I look in the manual to see how to set it it says to use the info and +- buttons but these are just blanking plates on my console. How the hell do I do it? It's driving me mad.
