  2. Driver's side window stops working after battery drain - related or unlucky?

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider

Few days ago left light stopped working AGAIN, so the guy recommended plugging it to a different ballast and it worked. So I changed the ballast. The old ballast was...

    Hi Guys, While braking pretty hard for a speedbump, something went "pop" and the car stopped slowing down... Now the pedal is very light, and has to be on the floor before the car will actually stop moving. The handbrake has been getting a lot of use :cheese: There's fluid in the reservoir...
