    ICE & Blue&Me
    Not used my car for a often happens now we have more company vehicles. Started instantly as usual....but went straight to tuner. I always have 8 gig USB stick in there that I leave on random play that fires up as soon as I start her up. I tried selecting the stick from the SRC button...
  3. 2012 Giulietta QV loose gear stick

    South Africa
    I parked my car, and when I started it and engaged reverse, it backed up and all of a sudden I lost all feedback from the gear shifter. Its completely loose and won't engage any gears.. I need some input if anyone experienced this before.. had to arrange towing.. Sent from my SM-G955F using...

  5. Remove Gear Stick Gaiter

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi I need to remove my gear stick gaiter to lubricate an annoying squeak down below...a YouTube video shows that it should just come out with a strong pull upwards. Is this correct? Thanks in advance
  6. Tell me where to stick it....

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    I have acquired a 'running-in instructions' sticker (like the picture only in English). This is reverse-printed, so if fitted to the inside of the windscreen (which seems sensible), then it's readable from the outside. But whereabouts on the windscreen were they fitted? I seem to remember...
  7. Stick on Badges

    General Alfa Discussion
    I know this has been posted before but bought a couple of these for my ageing 156 fading front and rear badges....they are surprisingly good. And no...i am not selling them...

    Alfa 155
    Are the 'hockey stick' body panels the same on both narrow body and W/B 155?
  9. Gear stick woes

    Alfa MiTo
    Morning all Had my Mito for about 4 months now - 2009 model 1.4 TJet with 5 speed box. The issue I have is the gear stick not returning back to the centre again so for example I move it to the left and put it in first then bring it back to neutral and the gear stick stays at the far left...
  10. Gear stick problem

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all at this nice Alfa forum Although I'm an Alfa enthousiast all my life and been driving Alfa's all the time, for me it's the first time to join this (international) forum :blabla: Nice to see 'fellow-enthousiast' sharing their Alfa passion:rotate: Anyway, I have an issue with my current...
  11. V6 6 Speed 6th gear stick movement

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi, After years of neglect I'm in the process of sorting my 1 owner from new 2001 GTV V6 3.0 out (slowly) Having complete suspension replacement Thursday but have an annoying issue with the gearbox I'd like to understand as well. Problem: Driving along in 6th gear just feathering the...
  12. Media stick not found.

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Last week I reset my AC and it's noticeably that's the good news! The bad news is that today I noticed that the"source" button on the steering wheel does not find the USB stick with my music in...worked fine before. I'm wondering if performing the reset with the stick plugged into...

  14. 147 1.6 120CV - Loose gear stick

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I have lots of play on my gear stick, in neutral but also when in gear. The stick does return to center, but feels quite a bit sloppy and I think its getting harder to find the gears each day (I need to also change the gearbox oil but I don't think thats the problem). I took a video of the...
  15. Blue & Me - Music on USB stick and songs repeating

    Alfa MiTo
    Hi, I'm now 3 days into my ownership of my 2012 MiTo and so far so good. 1st long drive this morning, early start so not much on the radio... I put a USB stick of music into the port on the centre console and all was well, but I need to manually forward to the next track - otherwise the...
  16. Bin Fire Stick, buy ChromeCast?

    The Technology Section
    OK, I think the answer's fairly obvious, but no harm in throwing it open to discussion. Our "smart" TV is by modern standards no longer smart, so, a couple of years ago I bought an Amazon Fire TV Stick. Problem solved - we could now watch the odd TV channel that's not available on Freesat or...
  17. Dip stick (and I don�t mean me)

    Alfa Giulietta
    Dip stick (and I don’t mean me) So I have my Giulietta 1.7 and because I am so OCD or some might say “Anal” I checked my oil level. Pulled the dipstick and there was oil half way up the whole thing, rats, I will check it again in the morning and yes it was they same, so either my engine is...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all, I'm new to this forum. I've a 04 GT and since I got it 2.5 years ago the sound on the steep is absolute rubbish. I have to crank it up to about 30 just to hear it. Does anyone know if this is normal or reckon I need to replace it? Thanks Cathal
  19. Gear stick not centering - NOT the top hat bushes

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all I have a 147 1.9 jtd mjet on a 2004 plate. Has a few quirks and foibles - but basically I love my little car! The gear stick has stopped returning to the centre but only from 5th, 6th and reverse - it is good from 1st and 2nd. I have replaced the top hat bushes on the linkage selector...
