  1. Headlight H7 Bulb Spring

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Went to change one of my headlight bulbs the other day and found it was held in with a hair grip checked the other side and found it was held in with a cable tie! Neither bulbs were seated correctly and it does rather explain the dodgy dipped beam i was experiencing. The previous owner must have...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I know I'm opening a can of worms but I'm really trying to figure out what would spring rates would be the best for track dedicated Alfa Romeo 156 2.0 Twin Spark. So it's only about performance on a race track. I've checked Twin Spark cup (racing cup for TS alfas in Vic and NSW states in...

    Hi, well I guess it happens to us all...I just can not live with my current spring set (H&R), too low... I hope someone has an original set they would like to see used vs sitting there perhaps removed previously etc, fingers crossed!!! Best regards. Paul.
  6. Rear spring (possibly)

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    So after getting in from work yesterday to a large package sitting at my front door (Replacement bumper, slam panel, and off side light) I manhandled it into the house and went to put a coffee milk. So jumped in the car and drove round to the shop to pick up milk, on the way back a loud...

    Hi So I’ve removed a spring pan to de-rust and apply rust proofing and see that there are 2 holes in the underside with rust inside. Do you have any tips on removing rust from the inside cavities? Thanks Ian
  8. ALFA MiTo 1.4 3dr Turismo Coil Spring

    Alfa MiTo
    I’ve had a quotation from a garage for around £300 for some coil springs on my Alfa due to them being ‘special’ and being a dynamic type spring due to my multiple driving modes in my car. They also stated that they have to order in a pair, there fore I have to pay for both, just posting to get...
  9. 156 T-Spark 2004 Door Mirror spring

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    My Grandson pushed the Driver side (Right) door mirror the wrong way. This has caused the mirror to be floppy. I am aware that there is a simple solution to repairing the mirror as the spring has become detached. About 4 years ago I watched a video on how to reattach the spring. I can not find...
  10. Retro fitting spring load brake compensator

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    In the absence of later version of brake compensators, I'm considering retro fitting an early spring load brake compensator. I need information with regards to the spring and where it attaches to. I've looked at the GTV manual and the diagram shows the spring going straight into the subframe, is...
  11. Big window spring

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Bit of a puzzler. I had a problem with the window adjustments and some of the teeth had burred over, I've managed to file them & it all works ok...But the big flat clock type spring not only pops off but when the regulator is working the spindle that the spring locates into pushes itself...

  13. Alfa spring colour coding.

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Can anyone identify these srpings by their colour coding. They’ve been in my shed for ages and I’m not sure which 156 they came off. It’s either a 2003 156 sw 1.9jtd turismo or a 2003 156 GTA. Fronts are green red blue. Rear are orange green. Cheers Joss

  15. Spring Meet - any interest?

    Northern Ireland
    Hi All, Considering the number of Alfa's I see on the roads, I suspect there may be more members of this forum than the number of posts would suggest. So, the question is, are there any proud owners who might be interested in meeting other like-minded souls (those who are not too busy...

  17. Lowering Spring Kits

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi I am new to the forum I have recently bought a 2.2 939 Spider thinking of lowering the set up. From what I’ve read from other owners the choice would be Eibach pro kit, however they don’t make them for 2.2 JTS anymore and I was wondering if anyone has any thoughts on using MAXTRAC lowering...

  19. Damper & spring replacement quandry

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Been reading up on a lot of old threads about damper+spring combinations, as I need to renew all four corners soon, and I've narrowed it down to two that I think would suit me at the moment. They are also around the same price range. 1 Koni str.t kit which comes with H&R springs (30mm lowered)...
