I have a 2005 156 sportwagon and when the doors are open it pops up on the centre console display. This is not the case for the tailgate / boot. Does anyone know how the info centre knows when a door / tailgate is open? Is there a sensor in the tailgate? If so, where can I find it? Thanks all!
Having the problems experienced be many , getting messages the boots open when it’s closed , middle brake light not working , checked were the wires come through to the tailgate and I have three wire broken and another three have the plastic covering split but the wires are still working ...
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?
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. We even found one that checks out on all that we need (mileage, year, condition, price etc.).
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...
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...
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?

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.
I have a tailgate wiring loom for the left-hand side if anyone is interested. This is brand new unopened as I ordered both but only used the right hand side. £35 or €40 with postage anywhere in Europe. I prefer PayPal payment.
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...
..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...
The tailgate lock is playing up.sometimes works from button on key fob, sometimes from bag button on boot. When it doesn't unlock you can hear the solenoid in lock whirring. It's had the wiring loom patch fitted by the dealer under warranty 2 tears ago....can is now almost 4 years old with...
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...
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...
Recall for Stelvio Tailgate
Second Recall for the Stelvio
Seems a lot of Giulia owners have also suffered water ingress but into the front ECU
My tailgate badge has stopped working, the button on the key fob works fine, should the button push in smoothly? Mine has only ever worked by pressing the left side of the badge and it's always felt like It gets stuck a bit, faulty badge or wiring do you think?
My first Alfa, I picked up a 159 sportwagon 2.2 JTS on an 07 plate.
First teething problem!
it keeps flashing up on my dash that the tailgate is open, when its not...! I've opened and shut it several times, its definitely closed! I've tried adjusting the catch and still the same...
