  1. Please help -- Roof won't stay shut at the back 😞

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Title pretty much says it all. I have a manually operated roof. This is the first week I've had the top down, and all of a sudden a problem has occurred. I can get the roof up and down using all of the release buttons, but when I try to clip the rear section into place, it just "pops"...
  2. Adjusting shut lines / door gap on GT

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hullo again! My GT has imperfect shut lines on the driver side door. The same door has a noisy check strap which I'm going to replace. While I'm inside there, are there any hints or guides on how to get the shut lines... just so?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi guys, I am in Melbourne, Australia and need some help please! Like so many other Brera Spider owners the softtop mechanics recently started to get sporadic. Most likely cause are the two flap motors either side, which I have ordered from the UK and received recently. I know for a fact that...
  4. Giulietta bonnet 'slam' shut sound

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi all, Is it normal for the Giulietta bonnet's shut sound (i.e. when dropping from a few inches) to sound like a lump of pig iron!? I can't believe (even) Alfa would deem this as passable but guess it is! Wonder why it sounds so cack when compare date to the the door shut sound etc!

    Having great fun fettling the Alfetta, one thing though is the bonnet, which won't shut. It seems to hit something hard as opposed to catching and locking. Any ideas? Thanks Rich

  7. Boot won't shut

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I see a number of previous posts about this problem. However before I looked at the forum I spend the afternoon trying to fathom out why boot wouldn't close. Lots of slamming since I felt it must be mechanical after taking catch out etc. When the latch is in closed position it opens on the...

  12. Window stayed shut?

    Alfa MiTo
    Well, I have always known that Alfa's pretty much have a mind of their own; it's what makes them so quirky and fun. Quite often my car will choose to start up the radio or media player just after starting the engine and even the choice of radio station seems entirely random when I first turn the...
