  2. Wiring Harness Tailgate

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hello All, I am trying to find a new wiring harness for the boot, the one on the LEFT. I found some at ebay and sent a message to the store to make sure I have the correct part. However, they asked me for a part number and I have no idea how to find this. Can anyone help? Thanks Shadow
  3. AR Giulietta tailgate uneven gap

    Alfa Giulietta
    First off, hello everyone! I'm new here and I wanted to ask you guys couple of things... I'm currently in process of active searching for my family's new hatch and we are 100% set on Giulietta.

    Alfa Stelvio
    Starting to get pretty annoyed with water running out the bottom of the tailgate and landing on my head/back of my neck on the Stelvio when i put things in the boot. Was looking at it yesterday between storms and I think I can see the issue. The black strip that surrounds the bottom only has 3...
  5. 159 Sportwagon Tailgate Push Button

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Been having a little trouble with it the last few weeks, some days it works, others not. So tonight I had a look at it (whilst the trim was off from replacing the rear wiper). Having managed to get it off easily enough I noticed that the plastic around one of the fixing bolts was cracked and...
  6. Tailgate wiring looms - when did Alfa fix them?

    Alfa Giulietta
    Morning all.. Looking at potentially getting a 2013 Giulietta Sportiva. To the previous owner's knowledge, the tailgate wiring looms have never been replaced. Had Alfa fixed the issue with the short wires by 2013, or is it something which I'll need to factor in? Pics of the wiring looms in...

  8. Tailgate pull strap

    Alfa MiTo
    I believe that the leatherette pull strap was discontinued, does anyone have one lying around that they would be willing to part with, I know you can leather ones but mine is a white QV and none of the available options really go. Cheers

    Hey, First post coming up. I've just had a 2008 Spider for the weekend to which I am purchasing after a lot of fun with it. Had a few issues with it. 1 - The roof operation warning, which I have read what was a very useful thread on here regarding the struts so I'm confident I can get that...
  12. That old tailgate loom chestnut..

    Alfa Giulietta
    ..when you buy a second hand car, eventually you find out the reasons it was sold! My Giulietta has been no different - picked it up this spring and hopefully have just found the last of the niggles that prompted the previous owner to sell! As the weather has started to get colder, needed the...

  14. Giulietta tailgate lock question

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi, We recently purchased a 2012 Giulietta (with some minor issues) and so far are quite happy with it. The tailgate doesnt open on the button or fob, so started looking into it. It might be an issue with the usual frayed wires, but I have continuity to the plug wires back as far as where...
  15. 159 SW tailgate rubber boot removal?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    How do I remove that rubber boot (AKA duct seal) holding the wires coming from the body shell to the tailgate lid? Elearn says that the lower part of the boot is bolted to the body shell, but I can't reach the nuts beneath the rubber cups (?) which I can't ditch either. Any hints would be much...

  19. Replacing Giulietta tailgate release

    Alfa Giulietta
    I want to replace my 'weather damaged' Alfa badge that also opens the tailgate on my 2015 1.4 Multiair turbo Sportiva. I have the complete part from Alfa Workshop, but I need some guidance of how you fit it. Clearly there are two built-in bolts so that's straightforward, but are there any...
  20. Car Washed - no windows / tailgate function!

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I just sold my 147 to a local lad, who promptly had the car washed, and now he tells me the electric windows don't work, and the tailgate button no longer opens the boot! Poor guy! Not the introduction to Alfa Romeos he might have wanted! Sounds like a simple fuse to me, but what do I know...
