    Trying to diagnose where the leak is coming from in my 147, both foot wells are damp. Definitely not coming from the scuttle drain hole or the door cards/seals. I'm led to believe that these holes behind the wheel arches should have a rubber bung? Neither of my wheel arches have a bung and it...
  2. Alfa Giulietta
    Looking around my car today and I noticed this. This is the join between the top part of the dash, and the piece of hard plastic above the heater controls next to the steering column. Is it normal to have this or is it likely that my dash has been apart at some stage? Some of the other joins...
  3. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    HI guys, My 147 didn't start this morning it was fine yesterday. Went to unlock it with the fob and the alarm went off. Alarm wouldn't turn off and car wouldn't turn over. Fitted a new battery into the fob and no different., battery light isn't on but the orange engine one is. Central locking...
  4. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hi everyone, new to the forums and bought my first used 2008 159 1.9jtdm lusso (150bhp) the other day (my first Alfa!) I really want to love this car as it is a thing of great beauty but my experience is not going great so far. I bought the car from a dealer in Oldham, as it was the nearest I...

  6. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    I am never sure I have a problem with my swirl valves or not on my 2.4 jtdm. I often hear a mechanical ticking sound when pulling away or speeding up with the window open. It makes me think they are rapidly fluctuating? Crazy idea?! Similarly if I blip the throttle hard when standstill e.g. with...
  7. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Evening all, Accidentally posted a reply to a really old thread just now instead of starting a new one. Sorry! Ignore it. Anyway, just wondering if the numbers, icons and the white tab on the knobs are supposed to light up? It's hard to tell if they are or not just by looking at them. (Please...
  8. Alfa 33, Sud & Sprint
    Or is it just a horrible fix someone has made? I see my self ripping that off and investing some money to buy new sleeves in the near future :p
  9. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi and thanks for looking. As the title suggests - basically, i was out and about yesterday in the car and just as i get to the bottom of a hill i press the brake pedal and - nadda... the pedal went really long and only when near the floor did it contact anything and would provide 'some' (some...
  10. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi guys, I noticed something which I don't know is a feature of the GT or not. When the car is unlocked the numberplate lights come on dimly, when engine is turned off and car is locked they stay on for a minute (dimly) and then proceed to flash for a second every 5 seconds (again dimly). Funny...
  11. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi, Silly question, but I read that 156es have a cabin temp sensor. I see the little net on the central console which is supposed to be the temp reader. But I can't see the temperature digits anywhere. When I press the "km" button to change the kilometer only thing that happens is the kilometers...
  12. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hi everyone, I've never really paid much attention to Alfas before - sorry to have to admit that. But I'm ready for throwing in my Toyota Avensis and looking for something a bit more funky and quick. Anyways, I had a quick glance at a 2.4 jtdm earlier today, and love the looks of it and the...
  13. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi guys, I got my alfa 147 2003 about 1 month ago, didn't check the boot at the garage cause it's pouring and I was very determined to get my alfa:cheese: When I got back home,found that the boot won't open using either keyfob or from inside. Drove 200 miles to the garage, trying to sort out...
  14. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I have 8..I can see them and I have counted them (no really!). The official brochure says it is supposed to have only 6. Mine has got 2 front, 2 side, 2 curtain and 2 rear bags. Strange?
  15. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi all as much as i love the gtv and driving here really makes me great and i guess re claiming some of that mis-spent youth was all part of thr reason for buying. But the last thing i expected was the car to get younger as well!!!!!! i checked the kms on the car the other day expecting too see...
  16. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Is the radiator supposed to be fully exposed on a '98 156? I just checked around my front bender and noticed there was no grid (or whatever is the correct english term) protecting the radiator from stones etc. Is this how it's supposed to be or should there be some sort of protection? In that...
  17. Alfa 164 & 166
    Having a chat with a chap who works in my office, in the same department as me, when he caught sight of my (rather distinctive) red Alfa Romeo keys. Steve: [spots my keys] "Got an Alfa have you?" Morgan: "Yes, it's a 166." Steve: "Me too!" Morgan: "Really? Wow. Mine's a 2.5 V6" Steve: "So's...

  20. Tuning & Upgrades
    Ok heres some pictures as to why im so stuck on how to put a BMC CDA airfilter on the car. As you can see its just so cramped to see what your doing. Also that electrical cable thats plugged into the pipe just above the airbox, that has to be plugged in at all times rite...
