    My battery run down yesterday and my car tape is asking for a code before I can use it BP330158356716 7643301316

    In this heat, there is a sort of tape trim along the Brera windows that is peeling off. Was it ever actually supposed to be there and if so, where can I get replacement? Also......I am getting a “preheat of coils not available” or something to that effect. Any ideas what that is all about? Thanks

    Mrs Bazza has a cassette tape of music by some friends of her dads. It used to get played in their car, and reminds her a lot of him. How can I most easily get this either on to a CD, or preferably recorded as a set of music files playable through iTunes etc? There's only this one tape, so I...
  4. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I was doing some rust treatment recently and came across aluminium tape covering openings in the bodywork. These are the manufactured circular holes into box sections etc, not rust holes. There seemed to be a couple around the rear suspension, maybe others but didn't look any further than the...

    Does anyone know where I can get the black fabric tape that Alfa use for taping up wires under the bonnet? Some of mine is coming off and I want to replace it. Cheers
  6. Car Detailing
    Hi, Firstly apologies as this is not related to my Alfa, but for my wife’s 2010 Peugeot 308. Unfortunately she a little accident and smashed her rear windscreen. Autoglass wasn’t able to come out until 3 days later, so I cut out and used black bin liners and brown tape. Done a pretty good job...

    Two questions: 1. Where car one buy rim tape for cars? 2. Will rim tape for bikes work on cars? I was thinking of adding reflective rim tape to my GTV's wheels. Because GTV... :yes: Reflective rim tape...

    Always surprising, maybe this is the Alfa magic :inlove: Now i need to find where they installed the cassette player and dig out some 80's tapes. Maybe tomorrow i will get an 8 track message and icon.:lol:
  9. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hi All. I was taking a glance in the engine area of my 159 1.9 JDTM (2007) the other day and noticed that a few of the wires were touching warm/hot metal areas and that the protective wrapping that seemed to be on there from the factory seemed to have been wearing off. I was wondering if...

    Hi all, I've just bought a set of genuine rear brake pads, complete with fitting kit(caliper bolts and pad retaining clips) but left a bit baffled as 2 of the 4 pads appear to have 3m double sided sticky tape stuck on the rear? The tape appears to be perfectly cut matching the anti-squeal...

    Hi all My phase 2 GTV has the original tape deck and i am looking at a new head unit for obvious reasons! Going for Pioneer head unit, does anyone know if i will need a wiring harness or will this go straight in? i know i need a facia adpater, i guess Ebay is best for that as Halfords want...

    Evening all! Just wondering if anyone knows where to buy the black fabric electrical tape used all over the engine bay. My tape has self destructed, and I have replaced it with high temperature electrical PVC tape, but it doesn't look in keeping with the engine (it actually looks like someone...
  13. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    After hours of checking for errors and finding non either with any connection or logged in the ecu, I gave up. One small piece of black electrical tape later, a new MOT certificate joins the others in the service folder. Seems the old'ns are still the best.
  14. Alfa 33, Sud & Sprint
    Hi all, Want to put my bluetooth CD player in the Alfa - just took the old blaupunkt tape player to find loads of wires going into it, don't know why I thought there would be a connector! Anyone have a wire guide I could use? Thanks!
  15. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hi all, Anyone know of a decent product that will get off the really strong padded double-sided tape that holds on number plates. This stuff grips like a b*****d and I'd like to re-fit a new front plate. Before doing so, I want to get this tape off easily without damaging the paintwork. White...
  16. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Just bought a 159 2.4 TI in white it is beautiful but one thing i have noticed today is as it gets dirty you get like a brown stain on a part of the skirting kit. After further inspection the brown stain is on/under a tape which is attached to the skirting is it save to take this off ? why is...
  17. The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Basically, all the black tape along the centre of my Alfetta's bumpers is losing it's 31+ year old stickiness. I've had to remove one corners worth, round to the rubber overrider and the others aren't far behind. Is there a specific replacement "tape"? Demon Tweeks do a 'racers tape' which...
  18. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Yes, I got deperate and put some duct tape on the top of my passenger window (the part that dives into the rubber seal) and it became silent... almost silent, at least. What do you think: A video on youtube showing me tapeing my car with the voice over saying: "This is my new 60 000 dollar...
