I've just bought a 66 plate 1.6 Giulietta tecnica and I was surprised to see it hasn't got a 12v socket in the boot - just a plastic blank where it should be. I have a 2011 lusso that has one - was this an optional extra, and is it possible to fit one?
My plans for the festive period in between drinking my own body weight in Peroni and G&T and taking my grandson for his second trip in an Alfa (Hopefully this time without the Exorcist-esque projectile vomiting) are to replace the front springs, shocks, wishbones and drop links on the GTV. Being...
Good day everyone,
I'm replacing the belts of my 156 2.0 TS. In order to turn the engine to reach TDC i simply would like to use a wrench with a 19mm socket on the crankshaft bolt. My problem is that i can't get to that nut, the socket being too thick. How do you do this? Thinner socket...
Am new on this bit of this forum (although not new to Alfas) so hi, if we've not met before!
My 3.2 GTV needs a belt change (and much more, am sure I'll get around to starting a car thread at some point) and so I need to get the aux pulley nut off the crankshaft. I've read the guides but can't...
Can somebody help me?
Alfa 156 SW 2.4 jtd 10v 2002. year
I fitted a towing hook. It works electrically well!
How can I use "Trailer direction indicators warning light" in the clock?
How can I set up?
Thank you for your answers!
I am trying to get digital music into the brera (seeing as the Blue and me will only speak italian, and the USB socket is dead) does the standard head unit (not mp3.... bose system fitted) have a socket for a CD changer? Will I be able to use this ...
On Friday, I am hoping to attempt replacing drivers side outer CV Joint boot which has split. Has anyone got info on Toque setting for bits I will need to take apart e.g. axel Nut , etc together with some details on any particular tools, socket sizes I will require.
Worth checking before...
Having search quite a lot already for a wiring diagram I hope someone is out there who can help out some way.
The 12v outlet in the boot of my 2.0 jtd isn't working (anymore?).
Having checked the fusebox in the rear right of the boot, accordingly to the owner's manual, showed that F55...
what size is the rear wheel bearing nut on the Mito. It's bigger than anything in my set 32mm...36mm? Looks to be quite tight fit inside the hub. Any recommendations on what socket I can buy to do this?
Last week I bought an Alfa Romeo Giulietta (2011), and it seems like the power socket near the middle is not working at all. I tried the same adapter in the power socket in the rear, and it works perfectly there. The wierd part is that the ring around the front power socket is still lit. So...
Ive got a 2011 159 and was wondering what it can be used for ie is it for updating the cars software or does it allow you to plug in say a usb stick and play audio directly from that? I did try charging my phone from it and it seemed pretty useless but i was using the sat nav at the same time
Still have a problem with my OBD socket on my Brera. Has anyone removed the panel to have a look at the connections on the back. I have loosened the 3 bolts holding the panel in place but cant remove the panel as the brackets are still in the way. Any help would be appreciated.
The rear 12v socket in my 159 SW has stopped working. Its not the fuse, I must have damaged the wiring somehow when investigating polarity in previous jobs last year.
My question is about wiring: What route does the wiring take from the battery to the cabin in the 159? I would like to add an...
Hi Guys ,
About to do my first engine service on my Mito but this is the first time I have changed one of the paper insert type filters and not a metal screw on.
I have a chain , claw oil filter remover but don't want to damage the enclosure I guess is plastic. There are a few different socket...
this is just my second post but I believe there are many more to come. I bought my G a couple of weeks ago and already have a few changes/upgrades/fixes I want to make.
This time I was wondering if it is possible to fit the fiat blue&me socket on the G. Since mine is a late 2012...
Anybody done this and give me a run down guide on how to do it? Which fuses to look for where they are etc. on my GT 1600 Junior (75)
I read an online guide that said it's basically picking up one wire to the battery and another wire to earth, however as I understand it this would be...
Can anyone recommend (or avoid!) a reasonable metric socket set for using on the 159 please? I don't need a top of the range one, or a cheap Chinese one but it would be good to know what sockets I would need i.e. do our Alfas have nuts that go up in 0.5mm steps or is everything a whole mm...
