  1. Brera Skyview sliding panel sliders

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi, Skyview panel wasn't closing/opening smoothly. So I'd like to replace white and black plastics brackets/sliders. 9 out of 12 white sliders are worn/torn/missing small pieces of plastic. 2 black brackets are missing teeth where the white plastic sliders are put on. Sliding panels are priced...
  2. Electric sliding roof lining broken

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Anybody had this issue? How did you resolve it? Plastic parts of the mechanism have broken off and apparently cannot be replaced. Alfa state that that only the complete assembly can be bought and replaced and they want a staggering £1,400 for it plus about a days labour. I'm truly shocked and...
  3. GT rear brakes - Sliding pins

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all. I thought I would rebuild my rear brakes at the weekend to get rid of the squeel but discovered that the lower sliding pin has a rubber collar that slightly expanded due to a reaction with copper grease. I need new sliding pins but I can only find a set for the 147. I know the GT's...
  4. Rear Caliper Sliding Bolts

    Alfa GTA
    Just refitting my very pretty, newly refurbed calipers but when I took them off, forgot to note which way round the sliding bolts go. Does the one with the rubber sleeve go on the top or the bottom or does it make no difference? Cheers, Pete

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I have just bought my159 Ti 2.4 and have found a small slider which when moved opens to show a small compartment with what looks like a solenoid in it .Any ideas what it is please? Have attached photos.
  6. Rear Caliper Sliding Pins

    Alfa GTA
    Can anyone tell me who supplies replacement sliding pins for the rear calipers, specifically the lower pins with the rubber? Having just replaced the rear discs and pads one on the lower pins was stuck and having removed it the rubber was swollen and loose. Also it appears they've been...
  7. Loose Anti-roll bar sliding side to side (ARB)

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi, Just bought a 156 1.8Ti with 120k. The car had the typical spongy squeaks when going over ramps slowly. I fitted both upper wishbones (TRW) but the squeaking didn't lessen straight away, after about 3 weeks it has improved greatly (Bedding in time?) The main problem I still have is a low...
  8. GT Seat Spring - Not Sliding Forward

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I have found why my drivers seat does not slide forward when you let a passenger out. The seat back folds down but doesn't slide, due to a cable/spring found broken. Anybody else had this problem or know a part number?
  9. Seat sliding - am I doing it wrong?

    Alfa MiTo
    So I slide driver/front passenger seat forwards to let someone get into the back, and the seats wont lock back in place unless you push them as far back as they go, and then readjust. The seat just slides forwards and backwards rather than settling into the ratchet. Basically this means...
  10. Brera sliding roof won't fully close?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi all; small problem started in the last few days. When I go to close the sliding roof on my 2006, 2.2, it shuts and then opens again to show a few inches of the glass roof:confused:. Does that no matter if i try and open/close lots of times. I've kept my finger on the button for a few...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider

  12. driving a sliding in the have a wobble

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Stupidly I drove to work today in the snow. It was quite an effort. Leaving work today I was quite well snowed in and had trouble getting out. Stupidly i used a little power whilst on full lock..not high revs just trying to get up and out. On the way back as soon as i got to 40mph there is a...
  13. GT passenger seat - sliding around !

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi, The passsenger seat on my GT is really hard to adjust - once I lift the bar to get it to move it is difficult to get the slider to catch back in again and it just slides back and forward until it eventually clicks into place. If I am not sitting in the seat giving it my extra weight it...
  14. Slipping and sliding.

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Ok, it's slightly damp out there today but my car doesn't feel very stable... It's almost like I'm not getting traction or something. :( For example go a little quick around a corner and I get understeer a fair bit sooner than I should be. ???? Tyres are ok. What could possibly be wrong. :/

  16. Sunroof sliding panel broken... help!

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi I am about to buy a 156 JTS but the sunroof flap (not the glass part, the one the blocks out the light) is REALLY loose! When I first looked at the car it had slid into the roof and disappeared completely! The dealer fished it out for me but it's still totally wonky. Anyone know if this is...
  17. Slip sliding away.....

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Well, it had to happen. The clutch on the V6 is starting to slip (can't complain-70,000 miles) and will soon need replacing. Anyone any idea how much this will rush me? Any tips?
