  1. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    My 159 is in near mint condition but it has an ever so slight depression on the side of the front bumper. It looks worse on the picture than it is, but you get the drift... I wonder if anyone has some advice regarding DIY of sorting out this type dents? Thinking about trying to fit something...
  2. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Decided today to start dropping the rear sub frame & have all the parts powder coated but as usual a can of worms has been opened. Upon removing the rear arch lining, the rear arch lip came with it and various patches of rust has been revealed. :disappointed: I'd like some advice as to the...
  3. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi sorry if this is an already established answer but I've got lost a bit looking this up with different suggestions and dates of posts. I know the Airbag Warning Light coming on is usually down to the seats moving and disturbing the wiring. My MOT is coming up in a matter of days so I’ve used...

  5. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Just purchased a 159 TBI TI 59 reg. I tried inserting a USB stick with various albums and artists, but the only way I get media to play is by selecting Play Any Media. If I try to sort by Artist or Album, it tells me to "wait while media is updating", but then nothing happens and Blue&Me menu...
  6. The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Not mine but my S2's .... I'm slowly replacing bushes etc to get it as tight as possible but in standard format, not lowered etc - so far I've replaced the T bar trunnion "washers" with poly and the conical bushes where it is bolted to the diff - also with poly - next is the trailing arm bushes...
  7. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    How do I best sort out a rusty rear suspension :eek: I am not a mechanic so would not be looking at doing this myself. Had a good look underneath the rear and was rather alarmed at how rusty the various sections of the rear suspension are. Looks as if the springs could do with changing as the...
  8. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    My 159 has been in the wars and got some dents scratches down one of the wings/front bumper, nothing to bad i guess but the wing around the wheel arch is bent a bit, the arch no longer runs straight and is slightly buckled. I figure one of these come round your house and fix it types can...
  9. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I have spent the best paqrt of two days cleaning my car... a very good wash, clay, polish and wax. Then I went at sorting the air bag warning light. This link/thread/guide is brilliant! http://www.alfaowner.com/Forum/alfa-147-156-and-gt/377491-how-to-fix-your-airbag-light.html Had the seats...
  10. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    HI all, lots of threads on here about ARB bushes in terms of how to diagnose & how to do threads but; does it actually make much difference to how the car drives and feels? Obviously the annoying clunk under my feet will be cured but at around £200 at the local specialist is it worth doing as...
  11. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi there, I have been absent from this forum for quite some time, mainly as I sold my 156 2.0TS....Long story short, I brought a Rover 416SLI for peanuts, my intention being to hang on to it until I could afford a new car (Have a baby on the way and the rover cost alot less to run) however the...
  12. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    hi, i woudl like to sort out my v6 suspension... its crashy over bumps and wallows in low speed sharp corners which is very off putting... i was tossing up three possibilities: 1) std springs + bilstein b6s 2) eibach pro-kit + b6s (b12s) 3) bilstein b14 coil overs i know there is a fair...
  13. Alfa 33, Sud & Sprint
    Its been a while now, I've been trying to make my mind up about what I'll be doing with my project cars. I have too many open cases and I can only have so many cars at my house. I already donated the red Sprint to my cousin, and I already sacrificed the black 33 so that Tasos can get the front...

  15. ICE & Blue&Me
    Hi, My iphone 3gs contacts in the Blue & me are sorted in a strange way using 2 letters in few groups, for examples: aa - ea and then eb - jb etc. I would like to change the sorting to a more friendly and accessible way using one letter: a -f, g-l etc. Any guidance on how to change the sorting...
  16. General Alfa Discussion
    Got a couple of scuffs (not done by me!) on my 156 that I'd like to get sorted out. I have NO idea about this sort of thing so thought it was worth a go asking here. I've heard about T cutting out scratches etc; would this work on these (they look worse than they are thanks to the camera flash)...
  17. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    On my way down the M57 this morning and I lost all throttle in my GT. :cry: Fortunately the RAC came and rescued me and towed me to Mangoletsi at 8AM. I rocked up unannounced and Mark in service took my car in straight away and got the issues resolved asap. New EGR fitted under warrenty and...
  18. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Morning, Got a couple of squeaks in the car that need addressing and wondered if anyone had any tips etc? 1st - The clutch pedal squeaks when released, I'm 99.9% sure it's the hinge in the pedal box. (Had a new clutch late last year). How can I access it best to lubricate it and what...
  19. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    After I sold my 156 I found out about the 147's CAN BUS system the hard way-I changed the clocks (wanted white dials like the 156) and got the flashing odo error message. Put up with it for a year or so finally getting round to sorting it by adding a delay timer (4 sec) so the body computer...
