  2. Alfa 164 & 166
    A weird fault, my 166 radio / stereo system only gives static and clicks until I touch the brakes. If I run with lights on then there is no problem, apart from tape deck playing fast. I would guess there is some over chrging going on somewhere, and the lights take sufficient power to bring the...

    My brother just picked up a 147 1.6 TS - which incidentally had covered 67,000 miles since its last cam belt change! FML. He had it transported to an Alfa specialist about an hour away and the mechanic noted that the belt still looked fine! Anyway, he's had all that done and we've been...

    Hi all, I've got a 57 plate 147, when purchased a cheap aftermarket stereo was installed. There was constant background static on all inputs so I thought replacing it with a slightly better model would fix that. I've now just put in a new stereo - a Kenwood DPX-5000BT - and the exam same...

  7. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    got another classic that has been stored several years and not started for nearly a year - what would experienced folk suggest is best oil to put in plug holes and leave to seep around rings for a day or two before cranking I used to use Red X upper cylinder lubricant on another classic but not...
  8. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I know this subject has been discussed at length on numerous threads on the forum before,but having searched through some old ones,I haven't seen my question discussed/answered: Has anyone fitted a stubby type aerial to replace the said electric version? I have been wondering if one from an MG...
  9. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Does anyone else keep on getting static shocks off their 159? I do and I'm wearing the same shoes etc that I used to in the 147 and I never got it in that! I always get them when I get out and touch the door pillar as I close the door:mad:.

    Picked my luvverly new car up last week & so far so good except...... I've updated the language & added SMS reader to Blue & Me. My phone (Sony C702) connects ok, phonebook downloaded, even reads texts fine, only issue I'm having is if I make a call, as soon as the phone connects, during the...

    I know, if this is all the trouble I've had in the year since I bought the car, then it can't be bad, eh? http://www.alfaowner.com/Forum/images/smilies/smile.gif I have a 156 V6 Sportronic, 2000. In the last few weeks, my wife and I have been receiving small jolts of static, especially when she...
  12. Alfa 164 & 166
    Hi Does anyone experience like I do the Guantanamo Bay treatment every time they close the door of the 166? These static shocks are getting worse :( I honestly don't dress in polyester - is it the shiny metal handles making things worse. Is it my DNA? Has anyone got a cure, apart from those...
  13. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    had a quick search but couldn't find anything, so........... basically, it's a noise like static electricity or someone tapping out morse code, coming from above the drivers head, somewhere around the trim above the door. If i press the trim then the noise stops, let go and its back. Occurs...
