  1. Please help -- Roof won't stay shut at the back 😞

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Title pretty much says it all. I have a manually operated roof. This is the first week I've had the top down, and all of a sudden a problem has occurred. I can get the roof up and down using all of the release buttons, but when I try to clip the rear section into place, it just "pops"...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi there I currently have a GT 2005 JTD with 160K on the clock. I have had it remapped (generic) , dimpled and groove discs and eibach pro kit but other than that it's standard. I'm well into the point of wanting more oomph. I would like a comfortable/safe 220bhp - 230bhp. What is the best...
  7. Switch lights stay on.

    Alfa MiTo
    Hi all. The red warning lights on the aircon and air recirculated switches in my Mito are permanently lit. Pressing the switches results in nothing happening they stay lit. The third switch in that row, the HRW, works normally. I'm not sure if the aircon or the air circulation system are...

    Alfa Giulietta
    I tried to resist "D" on my commute a couple of times this week. Did it once. What about the rest of you? We could have a challenge!

Only to get a email hours later(while at work) asking if I could provide a chassis number for a the part I had...

  13. How long can a spring stay compressed?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I will be doing the front shocks and springs on my 98 mod 156 as time permits. I was not sure if i could compress the new springs enough to put everything together so I did a test on one spring yesterday. Using 3 compressors I managed to get it down to about the right length. Problem is it...

  16. Seatbelt won't stay clipped in.

    Alfa GTA
    The passenger seat belt won't stay clipped in, it goes in to the slot OK but won't site properly. It's played up before, almost as if the clip was already in, but it gave a 'click' and was OK. Now it's not having it. WD40? Replace it (can I)? Some other option?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    My 156 facelift is creaking up front, but whilst looking around for the wishbones I found a kit on eBay that is a really good price. Fitting a full kit rather just the odd arm seems like a good idea, but are these too cheap...
  20. Stay of execution for Daphne Broon

    North Scotland
    Fresh MOT on old Daphne Broon. Not even done 3000 miles since the last one. New pads on the front and a cv boot were all that was required. Pleasantly surprised really as I was expecting more than that. I feel I've neglected the old girl lately, I plan to change this though now we have a huge...
